We loved to stay in Thorleifurs apartment in Reykjavik! It was perfect for 2 families, 3 adults and 4 kids. The location was good, only 5-10 minutes walk from the centre. And with a playground just outside!
His mother was welcoming us when we arrived, and ingredients for breakfast for the next day was in the fridge :) We would definately go back.
Tolli was an amazing host, very quick to respond to messages, and so helpful. He met us when we got there, gave us a little tour, maps, places to eat etc.. Also he let us food in the fridge to make ourselves breakfast the first day!! Which was amazing and far above and beyond what we we expected. The photos of his place are very accurate, everything was clean and awesome.
The location was great too, lot of free parking, and close to downtown. I would for sure stay here again!!
we are very happy with our stay at Tollis. Tolli welcomed us when we arrived with the bus and in the apartment beds were made and it was breakfast in the fridge. clean and nice and Tolli gave a lot of good advice on what to see and do in Iceland.
Tolli and his apartment were great! We arrived to Reykjavik extremely early in the morning, and Tolli was able to accommodate us and even gave us some delicious items for breakfast. We were a group of six and felt the space was plenty of room for us. We made a few meals in the kitchen, and we had more than enough cups, plates, utensils, and cookware. We also had two rental cars as we were in and out of the city for a wedding, and we had no problem parking at the apartment. To get to the main street was a quick 15-20 minute walk.
Tolli was the perfect host and was very responsive before and during our stay. He sent me resources before our arrival and information on his favorite places in town. Then when we arrived, he went over our Iceland map with us and gave us some great recommendations for day trips outside of Reykjavik. I would definitely stay here again!
Everything was perfect! the flat is big and very confortable. Tolli is a great host.
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!
