I work as a glacier guide and really like to be outdoors in the Icelandic nature. Ice climbing is one of my main interests.

A really lovely, warm, spacious apartment in a good location near the harbour, and photography museum which is well worth a visit. Reykjavik is relatively small and everything was easy to get to - very good bars nearby like the Laundromat Café, and others with happy hour deals. Sigurjon's instructions on how to get to the apartment were clear, although the key for the external door takes a bit of practice - a kind and friendly neighbour helped us in.
Sjonni was a very nice host he instantly replied to our questions and even stopped by to check if everything was OK for us.
Since this appartment was in the process of renovation, Sjonni offered an alternative which was an excellent choice! We had wonderful days in Reykjavic. Absolute recommendation!
Location location location!
Myself and 6 friends/family had a wonderful stay at this warm, clean, and comfortable flat. Sigurjon was very helpful in letting us check in early with minimal notice. Everything we needed, restaraunts, shopping, entertainment, Harpa, tours, and so on was easily within walking distance and we were quite happy with the location. Overall it was really great for us.
Sjonni was a fantastic host first of all as he helped with organising tours of Iceland. He also offered us a private tour of Iceland for a very good price!
The apartment was fantastic and clean.
A very good experience all round.
Appartement très agréable et idéalement situé. Grand confort pour 6 adultes, peut accueillir 8 personnes. Le descriptif est complet et les moyens d'accès très facile.
Our stay was very simple. The directions to get in were clear, we had no problems while we were there, and the apartment was within walking distance of everything we wanted to do in Reykjavik. It's a quick cab ride from BSI, although it's very walkable is you don't have luggage or are backpacking. We made the trek several times to pick up/return our rental car.
Parking can be had our front, but you do have to pay ~100 kronas/hour between the hours of 6 pm and 9 am. This wasn't really a big deal because we were back late and gone early the one evening we had a car. The apartment is on the ground floor in the center of the city and Icelanders like to party late, so be aware if you want to sleep with windows open.
One thing worth mentioning is I misunderstood the two beds in the listing to mean the bedroom had two twins pushed together in the pictures. Instead, it meant there was one full bed and one sleeper sofa. My wife and I have trouble sleeping in a full bed, so we split up for half our stay. :-\
The kitchen was well stocked, with the exception of some basic items like paper towels and spices. We purchased our own from the shop down the street, so it was no problem. We left them behind for the next guests. :-)
We did find the apartment quite warm at rimes, but didn't bother to work out how to fix that or ask our host. There were two TV channels in English showing popular American shows, if that's your sort of thing.
All in all, we felt we got good value for our money and would recommend staying here.
The apartment is perfectly located and provides a lot of space. We (me and 3 friends) had a really good time in Reykjavik. Sigurjon responded promptly and gave all the necessary information to make the check in easy and comfortable.
This apt. is a great choice! Super comfortable and conveniently located on one of the main streets in Iceland. Everything is super walkable and there's a taxi stand right across the street. Parking right in front of the apt. is free and usually a few spots open. Big grocery is a bit of a drive but there's a little store just a block away. Sjonni is a great host, kept in touch to make sure we had everything we needed. Overall a great experience, would totally book the apartment again.
A fantastic find in the middle of Reykjavik. The apartment had everything I needed, with lots of exterior space too. The host was very accommodating! I give this my highest recommendation.
Sjonni was an excellent host. He was very friendly and helpful in arranging a time to meet and recommending places to go in the neighborhood. The apartment is as it looks in the pictures, with a nice kitchen and spacious living room. I would definitely recommend it.
Sigurjon was a very nice guest to have, interesting and warm to talk to. He even brought us a present, but also left our place in great shape.
