28 yeas old girl from Iceland with bachelor degree in business. Very friendly and helpful ;)
Overall the apartment was quite nice - unfortunately there were quite a few maintenance issues: The bedroom door handle was broken and if the door was closed then you became locked inside until someone could turn the handle from the outside. Therefore some people in our group had to sleep with the bedroom door open which wasn't great for privacy; There didn't seem to be any control over the heating and the radiator in the bedroom would not turn off. The knob on the radiator in the livingroom also fell off and so the apartment was very hot at all times; There was a note in the bedroom instructing us to keep the blind down at all times. The bedroom therefore had no natural light at all so was very dark; The bathroom has a lot of pipes and equipment in one corner with some mould. Other than these issues, the location was great and access was easy and the place was generally clean. Although I wouldn't stay here again, I believe it was still good value for money overall.
Margret's apartment is in the best possible location! Literally walking distance to everything we needed in Reykjavik. But it's so quiet!
We had to alter our travel plans the night we were leaving her apartment because of the weather and Margret was extremely accommodating about letting us stay another night. Everything about this apartment and our interactions with Margret were fantastic!
Location is good, central near to many interesting places in Iceland.
very central appartement. unfortunately there was a building site next to the appartement and the working started very early and was loud. the tv was not working with no chance of getting help.
We stayed here for 4 nights earlier this month (Feb '14) and had no problems at all. The location is great, it is a nice apartment and perfect for a short break in Reykjavik. We didn't hear any building noise. We would agree with the comment to get the transfer bus from the airport to save the walk up the hill! Overall a great trip and a nice place to stay.
Stayed here last week for 4 nights, the location really is great, definitely recommend it for a trip to Iceland for a few days. Get the transfer bus from the airport as it's a bit of an uphill walk from the bus station :)
We just finished an amazing 5 day stay in Iceland at Margrets place. The apartment is located right in the centre of Reykjavik and everything is within a 5 min walk. It made a nice change to have the relaxed atmosphere of our own apartment whilst on holiday. Margret was an exceptional host and responded to all of our questions extremely quickly. Be sure to stay here! Thanks Margret
What a great two bed apartment in a fantastic location only 3 mins walk to the main church and 3 mins to the heart of town with shops and bars
If location was the only criteria this place would get an 11 rating. It is a nice apartment in the center of the best shopping area. The bathroom and kitchen are not the best.
Margret is very nice in communication, and left the apartment very clean. 100% recomendations and I would gladly rent her and her family our apartment again.
Margret and Sigmar are a very nice and young couple. The commmunication has been good since the beginning and i happily advised them about my favourites place in BCN. They are polite and easy going people an i recommend them as guests to ant other host. Thank you guys!!!!
Wonderful engaged couple, Margrét and Sigmar! Beautiful, full of life, respectful, highly recommendable guests.
I and Margret are colleagues and she is such a positive and helpful person and I have heard stories about how she goes the extra mile for her guests. I would defiantly recommend her and her boyfriend Sigmar as hosts. They now have two apartments so you can choose if you would like to be downtown which is not even 5 minutes walk from all restaurants, stores and attractions or in a little bit quieter area which is close to downtown. They both have really high standards and which is important in a great host. I highly recommend their apartment if you are planning a stay in Reykjavik :)
Margret and Sigmar are the greatest hosts ever. They are very nice and are always ready to help you out. Their apartment is very clean and comfortable and most of all it is situated downtown near all the main attractions. If you are planning to stay in Reykjavík you could not get a better apartment for your vacation.
From the bottom of my heart I can assure every candidate, seeking for a rental-apartment in Reykjavik that this flat is one spectacular. With an amazing view over the city, the perfect walking distance to central Reykjavik and overall well kept and in good condition. I rented it myself for three months and I can guarantee good quality. If you are in need of anything, Margret and Simmi are the most willing people to help you with anything you need and most important at all, they are good friends you can rely on.
Margret and Sigmar are great friends of ours for many years, they are very friendly, outgoing and reliable people. If you want great host that are people that are able to tell you wat is going on in the capital around Iceland, they always know whats happening and what is fun! The apartment they have is incredibly cozy and nestled in a great neighbourhood right in the center of town. It is a few minutes from all the best restaurants, bars, and most of the best shopping. I can without a doubt highly recommend this to anyone visiting Iceland :)
Margret and her boyfriend Sigmar are great people. Their apartment is beautiful and very centrally located, with just a few minutes walk to all the main attractions of Reykjavik central area. I have been a host on Airbnb for a long time and know that Margret and Sigmar will prove to be great hosts because of their helpful and nice nature. I highly recommend their apartment if you are planning a stay in Reykjavik.
I'm good friends with Margrét and can honestly say she is one of the nicest person you'll ever meet, reliable and always ready to help you out. Their apartment is just 10 minutes walk away from the downtown area and close to one of the shopping malls. The apartment is beautiful with a nice living space and big balconies with a great view.
