Fantastic experience! Olafur and his family were very kind and welcoming! the appartment is cozy and warm, at walking distance from the center. There's a big and convenient parking nearby for those who rent a car.
Great apartment. Great host. Parking was easy and convenient. The apartment has all the basics. There are many advantages to staying in this neighbourhood; as it close to the Laudevelagur pool, close drive to a Bonus supermarket, good starting point for day trips, close to a beautiful seaside walk.
If you do plan on spending all your time in old Reykjavik and are on foot , it can be a long walk, especially in the cold ;)
Olafur's place was great. It was clean and neat and exactly as it looked in the photos. It was a nice walk to downtown Reykjavik and just a couple blocks from the public pool and hot pots. It was easy to find and we had a great time.
I enjoyed staying here. The apartment was clean and fully equipped with everything you could need. The bed was comfortable. We cooked in there twice with ease. The apartment is a 5 min walk to the Laugardalur Swimming Pool which we really enjoyed. Also in walking distance is a local market that is open 24 hours and a bakery that we went to every morning. We also walked into the main area of Reykjavik, It took us about 20 and we enjoyed walking on the water.
We can not say enough good things about our stay at Oli's apartment. It was super clean, bright and sunny. Oli was easy to communicate with and was also quick to reply to my many questions. He even went out of his way to bring us a French press as well as a pound of fresh ground gourmet coffee after I had notified him that the coffee maker was not working.
As far as location, it is a very short walk to the wonderful large swimming pool, zoo and botanical gardens as well as a HUGE gym. The walk to downtown was over 30 minutes which is not terrible but with a three year old it was a bit much.
I would highly recommend Oli's apartment and Iceland in general. It is a land of beautiful people, both inside and out. :)
Comfortable apartment in a great location. A wonderful base to explore Reykjavik from.
Olafur was very patient with us after a long trip. He wasn't able to meet us at his apartment but was in communication with us to answer questions. We enjoyed our stay very much! I highly recommend Olafur as a host.
We had a great week-long stay at Ólafur's apartment in Reykjavik. It was a perfect size for two people, with plenty of space and it was very well equipped. It's a little bit of a walk from downtown Reykjavik, but we found the walk to be really quite pleasant (and flat!). There's a great public swimming pool/spa around the corner, which we loved. Although we didn't meet Ólafur, we would love to stay again in stunning Reykjavik! Thanks Ólafur :)
Email contact with Olafur was great and he was always replying at least within the next few hours. He was patient with the whole lot of questions I had and gave useful alternative suggestions.
His apartment was perfect for 2 of us and plenty of space with a huge TV (we were absorbed with the World Cup then) and very good WiFi. Cleaniness was not an issue at all.
For the neighbourhood, it is about a 20 odd min walk to the downtown area of Reyjkavik. A coastal walk is very pleasant to have though there are a few bus stops not that far off for a fast trip to town. We did walk and take the bus when we were rushing for time so it works well both ways. The neighbourhood itself is quiet and no issues with noise at night or traffic on the roads.
There are Bonus supermarkets which are one of the cheapest around while 10-11 which is very near the apartment is quite expensive and not a very wide range at all. The very popular outdoor pool just a short walk away is excellent and a must to visit.
We enjoyed staying at Olafur's place-- the beds were very comfortable and it was nice to have a kitchen for cooking. His home is also a short walk from a large community swimming pool and a beautiful botanical garden. It was free to park and a very relaxing spot that I would highly recommend!
Very tall and great guy! :)) I'm very glad to have met Olafur and his sister. Both neat and kind. I would absolutely recommend them.
