I'm a 30 year old guy married with a funny Finnish girl. We are both Engineers and are very reliable but also laid back. We love outdoors and relaxing with drink, two or three.
My husband and I stayed at Ingo's for our honeymoon. We had tons of privacy and the room was very comfortable. My husband is 6ft and could stand comfortably, but any much taller and it could be a hassle as the room has low ceilings and even lower door frames.
The fridge came in very handy, if you want to buy duty free beer and keep it nice and cold during your stay. We also enjoyed the sauna a lot, it was very relaxing after a long day of hiking.
The place is in a great location, if you are slow like me it will take just 10 minutes to walk to the Main Street. There is also a great park with frisbee golf and art museum 1 block away.
Ingo is also very knowledge and gave us tips on where to go on day trips out of the city.
Overall highly recommended!
Ingo was a fantastic host. Very kind and helpful, always giving us little tips and ideas on what to check out around Iceland. Location was perfect - a great bargain!
We can highly recommend this appartment and our hosts! Ingó and Anu were so warm and welcoming from the first minute and invited us to their flat for lunch in the end. The loction is perfect to explore the city by foot and only few minutes from downtown. The room and spacious bathroom are exactly as shown in the pictures and the bed is very comfortable. The sauna is just the perfect thing after a cold day in Iceland! Enjoy!
Awesome stay in Reykjavik! It was a real pleasure to meet Ingo and Anu. They are really kind and welcoming people and gave us good advices for our trips!
The location was perfect, the room very confortable and clean and we really enjoyed the sauna after our hiking days!
Thanks again and see you next time ;)
We had a wonderful stay at Ingó's! Both he and Anu were very kind and accommodating. The room is very comfortable and has everything you need. We were there long-term and found everything to be perfect. The bathroom is especially nice! Thank you, Ingó and Anu! We will be back!
At Ingó and Anu´s we had the perfect room, and there was everything we needed and a little bit more. They are really nice and friendly people, helpful and hospitable. Other residents at the house were also very nice and friendly. The room was clean, modern, well furnished and bright. We will definitely return to Ingó and Anu´s place and we will highly recommend others to stay there.
This was a very cozy and clean room and perfect for my time in Reykjavik. The bathroom was great, bed was comfortable, and felt like my own little apartment. The only downside was not having a kitchen to cook in if staying for a longer period of time as I was. Otherwise perfect place, great hosts.
We stayed at Ingo and Anu's place for 10 days during the end of the summer of 2013. The room was really cozy and the bathroom was perfect. A washing machine, a spacious shower and more importantly...the sauna (really great). Having a seperate entrance really made us feel at home. A place to park the car and only 15 minutes to walk to the city center. Anu and Ingu have been marvelous hosts, eager to answer our questions. This is why we have to recommend Anu and Ingo's place if you plan to stay in Reykjavik.
Great room and the perfect place to stay in Reykjavik. The room was about 12'x14' with a separate bathroom (about 6 feet away from the room). The ceilings in the room and bathroom are only about 6'5, but the space in the room feels large and has lots of natural sunlight (well in the summer). The hosts were great and I actually never saw them due to the separate entrance. Their daughter lives also lives in the basement, but besides a couple early morning wake up calls from some guy I never heard any other noise in the room.
The room is very clean, fixtures are new and modern (expect for the fridge), and the bathroom is top of the line. The best part of the room was the hot pot, kitchen table, fridge, and microwave. It made early morning breakfast easy and felt like home. The love seat/couch is nice.
Pros: Room is central location to everything (5 minutes to start of main shopping street, 20 minutes walk to Kringlan mall, 5 minutes walk to bakery, good restaurants within 5 minutes walk, the Pearl is 20 minutes walk), clean and modern room, outdoor patio and yard to enjoy, sauna (yes you heard me right), reliable wifi, street parking, private entrance, own bathroom, lots of free travel guides and papers, drawer full of some dry food/cups/plates/wine opener/forks/etc., and gracious hosts.
Cons: The main part of downtown is about a 25 minute walk (makes walking to the bars every night challenging), fridge in room can be loud at times, comforter on the bed would be small for two people, tv does not have cable (but does have a DVD player and there are two video rental stores close by or you can watch movies on Itunes as I did), towel in bathroom is small.
Tip: I left the 2013 english version of the Iceland travel guide in the room. There is a really good bakery on your way to the walk to the Pearl. Google maps will give you inaccurate information about locations. There is free wifi in the lobby at the Best Western (password is attached to the lobby guest computer) and they also have the new Grapevine paper and other travel brochures. Closest big grocery stores are in the shopping mall (Kringlan) and on the far side of the shopping street. There is a connivence store not far on the main shopping street.
Looking forward to staying here the next time I'm in Reykjavik!
We stayed at Ingo and Anu's place for 10 days during the sommer of 2013. The room is just as described, with everything you need on your vacation. We expecially enoyed the seperate entrance, our own bathroom with washing machine, the proximity to city center (5 minute walk) and the hospitality if Ingo and Anu.
We can only give Ingo and Anu our warmest recomendations if you are staying in Reykjavik.
Excellent guests. Hope they will return! Many Thanx. Greetings, Daan
Ingo and guests were great to host. We hardly knew they were there. Always welcome back!
Ingo, his gorgeous wife Anu and their lovely group of friends stayed at our place in July 2013 and were the perfect guests! They were all warm, funny, courteous, engaging people and it was an absolute pleasure to meet them. They treated my home with the greatest care and respect and on my return, I was delighted to find the house spotlessly clean and in perfect order - it was almost as if I'd never been away! My new favourite guests of all time!! So if you're an Airbnb host and Ingo sends you a booking request, I suggest you accept immediately - you won't find better guests anywhere. Thanks for everything Ingo and Anu, you guys are all welcome back anytime - perhaps next time, we'll get to raise a few glasses in The Hole in the Wall together ;-)
