I am an english teacher and a journalist, currently living in Iceland. Feel free to ask any questions you might have that isn´t obvious in the listing.
The apartment is conveniently located, and though we missed a couple of things, the overall impression is very positive. I would rent it again if i needed one.
We stayed two nights in the apartment and everything went smoothly. We didn't meet the host since they were out of town but they had arranged to leave the keys for us at the nearby bus-station. The apartment was as described and fulfilled our needs.
Pros: located very conveniently and VERY close to Laugavegur, good price compared to hotels.
Cons: the apartment was damp and had a moldy smell. The beds and linen were old and worn. There was no coffee machine and limited utensils for cooking.
All in all, if you plan to spend most of the day sightseeing and just need a place to sleep then this apartment is an OK choice.
Good location and easy to walk to anywhere within the (website hidden) was organized, helpful and on time!
The apartment is a nice one and can be recommended. Thanks.
My friend and I had a really nice stay in this apartment. I slept in the bedroom and my friend slept in the lounge on the sofa bed. We both had plenty of space. Kristrún is an excellent and lovely host who went out of her way to get the spare set of keys to me when I needed them. Downtown is within walking distance, as Reykjavik is small. The place had everything I needed - towels, kettle, pots and pans, coffee maker and even an egg cup!
The reservation was canceled 20 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I traveled to Reykjavik with my mother for a week long stay. It was our first time in Iceland and we knew right away we had picked the best apartment for out stay! It was so close to everything we wanted to see and almost right next door to a geothermal soaking pool- how relaxing!! Everything worked smoothly with the hosts and there were no problems! We really appreciated how easy everything was and the apartment was really comfortable as well. We loved everything about the place and Iceland in general.
Very convenient appartment, well located near the BSI central bus station and the lively part of Reykjavik. The host is very sympatic and flexible!
This apartment was amazing! It was in a great location; very close to downtown and the BSI. The kitchen was beautiful with a lovely balcony offering a lot of morning light. The hosts were very flexible and accommodating and very willing to offer up information about their neighborhood.
This apartment gave us a wonderful first experience of using airbnb. The keys were left exactly as arranged, and the flat was clean and provided everything we needed. The only problem we had was not being able to figure out how to use the stove, but a quick phonecall sorted that out. All in all, very good basic accommodation very close to downtown.
