  • We recommend this appartement. We found everything we needed there to feel at home.
    The apartment is comfortable and it is located in the center of Reykjavik. All the interesting spots like museums, the cinema, car rental, the harbor, a public swimming bath and all kinds of shops are just in walking distance.
    We really enjoyed staying there. Thank you!

  • My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Larus and Hildur's apartment. The apartment was so comfortable, it made it easy for us to relax. The location was excellent! Close to shopping, bars, and transportation. Larus and Hildur were great hosts. Always communicating promptly with us when we had questions.
    I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a great stay!!

  • We didn't get a chance to meet Larus and Hildur but they were absolutely wonderful and responsive via email. The apartment is adorable and very cozy as advertised (the bed is wonderful, and more than ample for two people). I can't speak to the comfort of the pull out sofa, as we didn't use it. Well stocked kitchen, plates, cups, etc. The apartment is also very central and it's easy to get to both Lagauvegur (I'm sure I've spelled this wrong -the main shopping street) and Austurstrati (the street with all the bars and clubs -- all four of them ;)) is about a 10 minute walk away. All in all this was a wonderful experience - highly recommended.

  • This was a great apartment for our short trip to Iceland. It isn't big but with just the two of us it was absolutely perfect for our needs. Close to the centre and a short walk down to the harbour, we felt it was in a good position. Excellent value for money too. We could also park our rental car nearby for free. Although we didn't get to meet Larus and Hildur, they always responded to our messages promptly and were helpful with any questions we had. They were excellent hosts! Thank you!

  • Wonderful, cozy, quiet place in a great neighborhood in Reykjavik. Super easy to get to via the FlyBus. Close to the shopping district, great restaurants, museums, and more. Larus & Hildur made it easy, and were great hosts!

    February 2014
  • The location of Larus and Hildur 's apartment could not be better. It is cozy and clean with a busy shopping street a block away. Communication was great and the hosts were very nice about accepting a package that I'd asked to have shipped that was more problematic than expected. I'd definitely recommend them to other travelers.

    February 2014
  • We had one of the best trips ever, mainly thanks to Larus & Hildur's perfect apartment! The location is absolutely amazing, right in the centre of Reykjavik, a short walk from anything you might want to do or see. The apartment itself is very stylish, clean, comfortable and warm, with everything you might need. There is parking on the street outside if you hire a car.

    Larus and Hildur were very helpful and responsive in their communication. I don't think we could have had a more perfect Airbnb experience, or holiday for that matter! I will definitely recommend their place to anyone thinking of going to Reykjavik. Thank you so much Larus and Hildur!

  • Larus & Hildur's apartment was absolutely perfect. It's warm and cozy (perfect in the cold winter weather!), comfortable, clean, and furnished in a lovely modern style.

    The location is great too - just one street away from the main commercial street, whilst at the same time being quiet enoough that you don't get disturbed. We didn't get to meet Larus & Hildur, but they replied promptly to all contact and everything was as promised.

    November 2012
  • Such a lovely flat in the centre of town. Clean, cozy and has everything you need. I would definitely recommend staying here!
