Helga met us at her lovely apartment and took the time to make sure we were familiar with everything. We loved the place so much! It was a perfect location, had a great view of the city, and was a beautiful place to recharge between sight seeing and shopping. I would definitely stay again!
Helga and her husband were very welcoming and kind. The apartment has an excellent location steps away from many restaurants and bars. Parking is easy to find nearby. We found the apartment to be clean, modern, and very open with lots of natural light from the skylight. The hot tub was also nice after a long day exploring Iceland. We loved our time in this apartment and would return again. Perfect for couples.
The host and her husband were welcoming and helpful. The description was perfect..the apt was very centrally located. All around, a wonderful experience!!
Our welcome from Helga and Snorri was so warm it made us feel like we were coming to stay with family. We were given a tour of the apartment, given insights into the best eateries (did you know Harrison Ford's favourite Indian restaurant is only 5 minutes from the front door) and given a locals guide to the best things to do as well as a brief guide to what was on in the city over the days we visited. We throughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful apartment - nothing beats sitting in the hot tub watching the sunset over the city. We certainly recommend this apartment and Helga and Snorri as hosts. við elskum Ísland
Helga's apartment was amazing! Exactly like the pictures. My fiancé and I stayed for our 3 year anniversary and the experience couldn't have been better. Location was perfect, Helga was a wonderful host and extremely helpful, and the hot tub was a fantastic bonus on our last night. Would recommend to anyone!
Helga's penthouse was great! We couldn't have asked for a better location, close by to all the shops and restaurants but still quiet enough to relax. The kitchen had everything we needed, even some food items to make dinner and coffee/tea. Overall a great experience!
We loved this space. Helga's a great host that takes the time to make sure you're familiarized with the apartment. The location can't be beat. It took some back and forth to confirm the reservation, but I believe that was Airbnb's fault and I'll be proceeding with a complaint with them. When Helga and I finally connected she was quick to respond and a great host.
