Jorunn is a pro! This apartment was beautiful and perfect. We would highly recommend this to anyone.
The apartment is compact and well designed to make use of the small space. It is in a block with 2 other apartments but it was very quiet and feels secluded despite this.
It has a really comfy bed and is warm and cosy.
It is in a beautiful location on the opposite side of the valley to Akureyri. It would be a challenge staying here if you don't have access to a vehicle as it is not walking distance from the town and taxis are really expensive.
Communication was great.
I would definitely recommend staying here.
Apartment was fine and check-in/out was really easy. The host was very friendly.
The only negative thing was the staircase up to the loft was very small and slippery in socks, with no rail/wall to keep you from falling. Not a big issue but does require extra caution when going up/down to the bed.
Amazing place! Beautiful view of the city and also very close. I would stay there again if I ever came back in Akureyri :)
A truly wonderful and unforgettable place to stay. The apartment exceeded all expectations in terms of its design and location and communication with Jorunn prior to arrival was friendly, flawless and very comprehensive. When I arrived they had put music on and left supplies to welcome us. This was truly one of the most breathtaking places I've ever stayed at and I would love to return.Thank you again.
