We had a terrific stay at this cozy family flat in the center of Reykjavik in mid July. The location was a real asset- 8-10 minute walk from the BSI bus station along an easily walkable road, 5 minute walk to the center of town, 5 min walk to Bonus supermarket, 3 min walk to a delicious bakery for coffee. The space was cozy, clean, and comfortable as promised. We were traveling with a 2 year old, so the separate bedrooms for baby and adults as well as the highchair and toys in the apartment were key. The darkening shades made it easy to sleep despite long daylight hours and the beds were extremely comfortable. The small bathroom and small kitchen were functional with the basic items needed for preparing simple meals.
The host was gracious- easy to contact before and during our stay. She gave us personalized recommendations on family friendly activities and offered to lend us a backpack for our toddler (since this is something we didn't want to carry or purchase) which made excursions with him possible.
Our only 2 complaints were: 1) The key to the front door was quite tricky and it sometimes took us 5-10 minutes to lock the door when we were leaving. 2) The towels provided were a bit rough and old, not the most comfortable.
Would highly recommend this flat to anyone for the location, and especially to anyone traveling with small children- the conveniences can't be beat!
My wife and I stayed with our 16 month old daughter in Solveig's family apartment. We loved it! The apartment was very conveniently located, clean, cosy and our daughter loved playing with all the toys! Solveig was a thoughtful host and very responsive and helpful with the few questions we had. Definitely recommend.
We have a lovely warm welcome from Solveig into her absolutely central and cozy apartment! Traveling with our 18 month old in tow, she provided an extra stroller and hiking backpack for us, and made sure everything was ready for his jet-lagged bedtime upon our arrival! We really enjoyed our stay- everything was convenient, central, and just steps away. Thank you Solveig for a wonderful stay- we hope to visit again!
Solveig's apartment was a fantastic "home base" for our day trips around Reykjavik and the Golden Circle. Our young family of three (plus a sister-in-law) slept comfortably in her family friendly apartment. Solveig was very helpful in explaining practical matters and in helping us to navigate through the city. She was never further than an email away if we had any questions. Thanks for a great stay, Solveig! We may be back before long!
Solvieg place was perfect. Very cozy and warm. Great view with Balcony. Location was ideal. Close to so many great restaurants, cafes, bars, museums, and shopping. I felt so safe there. The neighborhood is quaint filled with so much architectural beauty.
Solvieg was kind enough to take us on a short tour around the neighborhood showing us good places to eat and shop. She was a perfect host! I would highly recommend her place.
This was a dream stay for me, as both Solveig and the apartment were perfect. The apartment was so beautiful and so well located, I immediately felt at home there. It's only 2 minutes from the centre, I had plenty of great coffee options. The apartment is peaceful and calming, yet full of light with a beautiful view. I slept well every night, and had some cosy nights in on the couch. All the practical stuff worked perfectly, and Solveig was very quick to respond to any issues or questions I had. I found her warmth and genuine friendliness very touching, and would say that I have a new friend that I hope to keep in touch with. I'm already making plans to return again one day!
