Interaction with Guests
I am always willing to answer your phone call, if there is anything I can help with.
In five minute walking circle, you can go to the seaside, to restaurants, galleries and a bakery. Or walk uphill, to the architectural, monumental, indoor swimming pool. The main local bus station is only a two minute walk, and a 24 hour shop is two doors away. Between are all kinds of restaurants, bars, banks and shops. Supermarket "Bonus" is also in walking distance.
Living here, everything is in a walking distance. But you can rent a bike in your street, and all kinds of transport rental are in the centre. You see the main local bus stop from the house.
Other Things to Note
The tap water in the apartment is good for drinking.
Guests are required to respect the other residents of the house. And if they smoke, do it outside the apartment.
Had a lovely stay with my fiancé. Really great location!
Sharing the bathroom was no trouble; we never saw the other guests who we shared with. Personally, I found the pillows and bed a little too firm to sleep well, but that's just a matter of taste.
We would absolutely stay here again if we are fortunate enough to come back to Iceland.
Appartement clean and near the center. No bad surprise. Perfect to visit and live few days in Reykjavik. Communication with Jòn Benjamin was easy, complete and précise. The entrance hall could be refresh. I recommend
We loved Iceland! Jon's place is very central, close to the local bonus store and across the street from a 24 hour market. There's plenty of Parking near his unit. He made entering easy with a code box, huge for travelers without calling access. We were on our honeymoon so our only gripes were that the king bed is actually two twins pushed together that created a gap in the bed by the next morning. The shared bathroom was no problem, it felt like our own. If the bed had legs my only suggestion would be to rope tie them together and put a king mattress on top. Otherwise, it was safe, central, everything worked, clean, we were happy.
Centrally-located apartment -- excellent for our vacation to Reykjavik. Jon was very responsive with answering our questions and making sure everything was set up with the apartment. Would be very happy to stay there again.
Room was clean and easy to access. Convenient location in city. Hallway smelled a bit like smoke, but the room itself was fine. Shared bathroom was not an issue.
Great location, very helpful and accommodating owner and all that you'd want with an apartment.
We really enjoyed our stay here with jón. The space in small but very comfortable. The beds were great, very cozy. The best part is definitely the location, very easy walk to all of the sites in Reykjavik. Like others have said, the bathroom is shared with the people next door, but it didn't present a problem for us. I would recommend it!
