My friends and I had such a wonderful time staying at Tolli's place! He was extremely helpful and attentive leading up to our stay. The place was great--gorgeous, warm, bright, and cozy, with a great location. I was shocked/ecstatic to realize that all three beds he set up for us were (very comfortable) queens. My absolute favorite details was that he had TONS of clean extra towels, linens, pillows, and comforters! The scent free soaps and breakfast goodies were also extremely thoughtful. I hope to stay here again some day!
Thorleifur was very accommodating we weren't exactly sure at what time we'd be arriving since we spent part of the day at the blue lagoon. Upon arrival he was well prepared, he had a set of keys for each person staying (big plus!) and actual printout maps with the address of the house location in case one gets lost exploring the city; He also made himself available via mobile to be contacted any time in case of any questions.. Very professional.
In terms of the apartment itself it was very spacious and in good condition, had all the amenities we needed. As some have noted the shower or washroom itself is a bit tiny however based on all the other great things about this apartment it shouldn't deter anyone from renting here.
The location of the apartment is also very good.. we didn't walk anywhere since we had a car and in the evening we used cabs but it's still very close to the main strip.
Overall we had a really great experience and would highly recommend it.
Thanks again Thorleifur!
Tolli was an excellent host! He came to greet my family at 1am in the morning - no complaints! He showed us to the house and had breakfast bought for our first morning. This was a great way to get settled in!
The apartment was very well situated, less than 10 minutes walk from the main street in Reykjavik. He had also shared some of his recommendations for restaurants and activities which was much appreciated.
As we were on a self drive tour we were mostly gone from early in the morning until late in the evening. But we always came back to a warm and comfortable apartment :)
One note for people not used to Nordic style showers would be to bring some flip flops for when using the bathroom. This was not an issue though as we knew this in advance!
Overall we had a fantastic stay in this apartment and I would highly recommend it!
Really enjoyed our stay here! So close to the city centre, very spacious, excellent facilities. Tolli was so helpful and answered any questions we had. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
5 of us in our group and the apartment was very comfortable. Tholli made us fee exceptional welcome in his lovely place in Reykjavik. He went to the effort of getting us a lovely breakfast for the first morning and spent time with us advising what we should do with our time in Iceland.
We were a group of four adults and three kids aged 1 to 8 years old. Our host, Tolli, gave us a great deal when we booked this place. And then got in touch a few days before we got there to make sure we had all the info we needed. We got there and within 15 minutes the power went out because the toaster tripped up the main switches. Not only did his girlfriend Helen come back to help fix that, she also brought a new toaster so we could use it. The house was stocked with basic essentials, which was great for us since we'd been travelling 24 hours straight. The rooms were clean, warm and exactly as described. The gate to the room downstairs was a boon with the littlest one running around. Three of us had the basement room which we thought would be cold with no radiator but turned out to be the warmest room in the house. Was perfect for us! We needed extra blankets and pillows, which Tolli very kindly provided. The WiFi and TV connection is superb, so it helped keep the kids occupied now and then. There is also a small children's play area at the back where our kids played safely (you can see them from the kitchen window). Neighbours were friendly and it is a lovely area to stay in, especially since it is so close to downtown. Everything is quite close, including good places to eat, grocery stores etc. And the pick up point for tours is just a two minute walk away. Tolli also has these printed cards and maps you can carry to find your way there and back. We highly recommend this apartment for families looking for a convenient and safe place to stay at Reykjavik.
