Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Olof and Jon are great hosts. I only stayed with them for three days, but they helped me get to their apartment and sent me a guest book that made getting around Reykjavik fun and easy. Far and away worth the competitive price. Stay with them!

  • We were treated to our own apartment in a different location when Olof and Jon mistakenly double-booked our date. The location was close-in to downtown, very convenient. Jon met us there and made sure everything was in place for our overnight stay before flying home the next morning.

    June 2014
  • The room is clean, price is reasonable. Oolf, Jon and their booklet for guests were very helpful.
    They have kids, so guests should be careful of night shower. A little bit far from the center, so the guests without car should check the bus timetable.
    Although there are some inconveniece, it's still good price in Reykjavik.

  • This was a return visit to Iceland for me, primarily to do a 3 day/2night horse riding tour, and Olof and Jon's room was perfect for me. I left belongings in the room while gone and felt totally secure in doing so. The bed, pillows, comforters and quiet location made for a good nights sleep, and a darkening window shade kept out the perpetual light during June. The shared bathroom never presented a problem. It's an easy walk to the botanical garden and close to several eating places and bakeries. "Passion" became my favorite place for morning coffee. Although there is not excursion pick-up at their building, you can walk a short distance to Hotel 66 on Grensasvengur for pick up or drop off.
    I am a solo traveler spending most of my travel time doing activities and this room was a perfect match for my needs.

  • It was really nice !
    A little bit far from downtown but, I enjoyed enough. I'll recommend to my friends.

    June 2014
  • Olof and Jon are a very warm and welcoming couple. The room is clean and very well equipped (fridge, mini-oven, tv, radio). I received a booklet in advance with maps, directions, and information of nearby attractions, which came in very handy. Definitely recommended!

  • Jon and Olof's room was very nice and comfortable. It was very convenient to have our own access to and from the apartment without disturbing our hosts. They also provided a handy booklet with maps, directions, and information of nearby attractions, which was very helpful and made it simple to find their house from the airport. Due to travel issues, we arrived at 2:30am but they were very accommodating. Jon also helped me sort out an issue with a bank overcharge, which I appreciated. I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone visiting Reykjavik!

  • Me and my boyfriend stayed at Olof and Jon's place for one night. They kindly offered to pick us up from the BSI station to their home for a symbolic price. He showed us around and gave us great tips about the city.
    They were really accurate, informative, helpful and kind to us.

We bicycle to our work as often as possible, but sometimes it snows and then we have to use our car. I love playing soccer, I like the way Arsenal and F.C. Barcelona play. We both studied playing violin for over 10 years. We bought our first apartment last year, a 4 bedroom apartment.
