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.
Very cozy and warm place to stay in Iceland.
It's perfect because the apartment is very close to the city center and there is a supermarket beside the flat.
I strongly recommend this place!
Wonderful little apartment in Reykajavik. Nice and cozy even on chilly days.
Great location and close to all the sites and day tour pick-up spots. There's also a corner store super close for snacks, toiletries, etc. Super convenient.
Très bonne organisation. Appartement très bien situé et très calme. Correspond aux photos.
My friend (Frederique) and I have experienced a wonderful stay at Jón Benjamín's appartment. We spend most of our time in Iceland's remarkable nature. The appartment is very cosy and the shower is amazing. The beds are great, the atmosphere in the appartament is nostalgic and adds up to our stay in Reykjavik. We hired a car and we were able to park it very close, behind the appartment at a sign named 'guests'. We were over the moon to be able to park the car at the appartment. Another plus is that you are able to walk straight into city centre and shopping street: Laugavegur. So we bought fresh bread at the local bakery: Bakari Sandholt. We both would definetely stay in Jón's appartment again in future. Takk fyrir !
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!
