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 sea side,to restaurants, gallery's and a bakery. Or walk uphill, to the architectural, monumental, indoor swimming pool. The main local bus station is in two minutes walk, and 24 hour shop is two door away. Between are all kinds of restaurants, bars,banks and shops. Supermarket "Bonus" is also in that 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.
Guests are required to respect the other residents of the house. And if they smoke, do it outside the apartment.
Jon was very accommodating and responded to emails quit quickly. The place however was not as expected as the photos do not give a good representation of the very small and slightly dingy apartment. Whoever took those photos is a very good photographer so be sure to hire them! Otherwise there was laundry, cooking ware and it was a super location. Too bad the photos were not representative of the true place. The place also smelled of smoke and the bed is not nice for a couple...As it's two separate beds.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It was very clean and comfortable and very close distance to shops.
This apartment was the perfect place to make a base. It was clean, tidy and warm with everything we needed. Kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans and general utensils. It had parking around the back which was good as we rented car. A bit muddy but as to be expected when its raining.
I was a bit sceptical about having a shared bathroom but it was very clean and I didn't have to wait at all to use it so it didn't seem like I was using a shared bathroom at all. Water was always nice and hot.
The only downfall about this apartment was the pillows which is a very minor thing as everything else was perfect.
Ideal location with a very short walk to shops / restaurants.
Jón was quick to response and extremely helpful when we got lost finding the place! Thank you for letting us stay here!
Nice flat, well situated (very close to the city center). We found every thing we wanted : kitchen ustensile, towels, city map and many brochures about things to do in Reykjavik and in Islande
On point may be improve indeed : the bed (not a double but two single beds side by side) and the sheets (fitted sheet a bit worn and only a little blanket).
Any way we had a wonderfull time there and recommended this appartment. It is a very good value for money
I stayed there for two nights, great location!!. The apartment is really comfortable and even has a small terrace that is quite lovely.
Everything was tidy and clean and even though we didn't meet Jón, the delivery of the keys were super simple.
The apartment is just about as central as it can get in Reykjavik; Just a short walk from local points of interest and the nearby supermarket. The apartment itself is small, but provided everything we needed for the week we were there. The kitchen was well stocked for a variety of cooking needs. Instructions and notes about the apartment and area were clearly laid out and we encountered no difficulty or problems whatsoever. Made for a great stay and a great overall trip.
Positives : Great location, very quiet, free off-road parking, comfy beds, nice and warm, cooking facilities good, essential cooking items left for us (salt, pepper, oil, towels, tea etc!), washing machine free to use, Jon very helpful but also hands off and let us get on with it, collection of keys easy, shower very powerful!
Negatives : Shared bathroom (although luckily we were the only ones staying in the week we were there), the whole flat strongly smelt of stale smoke, building itself a bit grotty and smelly, flat (especially kitchen) a bit dated and in need of tlc, nowhere comfy to sit other than bed or kitchen table, 2 single beds pushed together (and single duvets!) - not great for Romantic get away!
Overall, a great base and very relaxed, laid back vibe, but was perhaps expecting a little more for the price (though Iceland is expensive in general!)
