In a building of its own that originally was planned to facilitate a work shop for the house owner and later a beauty saloon that never opened, thus converted in to a studio apartment (around 1970) which we redesigned to accommodate 2 guests. We are a licensed guesthouse group II.

We stayed at Jon's rental while we were in Reykjavik and it was perfect. The location was only a 5-10 from the city center, and the rental was perfect.

great place in the heart of Reykavik. Walking distance to the center. Easy checkin process.

I'm surprised by the reviews this location gets, because I was greatly disappointed. Pros: Excellent location, easy parking, great communication. Cons: Thinnest pillows I've ever seen, bath towels as soft as sand paper, no bath soap, old old old furnishings that remind me of a g…

Response from Jon:
Im sorry to read your comments Chris as I find them to be unfair. Firstly we pride our selves for very clean apartments. As i personally cleaned everything in the apartment before your arrival, your statements leave me with a question-mark on my face. I can only wish that you had contacted mewith your complaints while staying. As I am sure that me not being able to accept your wish for a free night added to your booking has nothing to do with your review but as stated in our conversation I can not bear the financial cost of changes to your flight plans. I do hope that you found a cheaper place to stay on your last night that better accommodates your wishes. The pillows may not be the same size you are used to but are regular European standard size. You are the first and only guest to see any resemblance between our towels and sand paper. Our towels are washed and tumbled dry to maintain softness. We do not use fabric softeners as they often contain a cocktail of nonrenewable petroleum-based chemicals, which are not easily biodegradable and can become highly toxic to aquatic life once they're washed down the drain. Certain chemicals found in fabric softener are likely human carcinogens, developmental toxins and allergens that can contribute to eczema. Furnishing may not be your style but is exactly as shown on the apartment pictures. I can assure you of our best intention to offer very clean and comfortable apartments with furniture that accommodates that intention. The furniture is only 3 years old except for the new chairs put in the day before your check in. Best regards Jón

My husband and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon and we loved it! The space is very small but also very well laid out and accommodated all of our needs easily. We did tours each day so we knew we weren't going to be spending a ton of time in the space anyway. It's really con…

Jon's place exceeded our expectations by far. We knew from the ad we were getting a great place, but it was better than imagined. The location was familiar, as I have staying in this neighborhood before and is centrally close to the popular spots in Reykjavik. Jon's place was…
