Really lovely apartment - much bigger and better appointed than almost any other AirBnB place I have previously stayed. Helga met me at the door and showed me briefly round the area to give me a feel for the area. Bed was comfortable, apartment was clean, hosts were charming and helpful. What more could you ask?
Helga's place was beautiful and in the best location in Reykjavik. Even though our flight didn't arrive until 1 AM, she stayed up to show us around the apartment. Would highly recommend.
We loved this apartment in the center of everything Reykjavik has to offer. Helga and Snorri were very welcoming and really went above and beyond to help us settle right in. The apartment is a lovely, light-filled space that has been meticulously outfitted for a traveler's convenience. It is located on the main street for restaurants, bars, and shops. The views from the decks are amazing (you can see the Hallgrimskirkja spire from the rooftop deck and it's beautiful on a moonlit night). We slept so very well here because the space is well-insulated from the bustle of the busy street below and the bed is extremely comfortable. We rented a car for day trips and had no trouble finding free street parking when we returned in the evening.
The apartment was beyond what we expected. We had to extend our stay because we didn't want to leave! The location is perfect and within walking distance to all the best shops and restaurants. A perfect place to stay in Reykjavic. Bravo!
We had a lovely stay in Helga's beautiful apartment in Reykjavik. Although the check-in time was 3pm she was happy to let us in at 12:30 knowing we had arrived early. Helga kindly took us on a mini-tour of Reykjavik where she showed us some hidden gems which we would probably not have known about otherwise. One of these places was a restaurant/hostel called Kex which we loved and would recommend anyone visiting Reykjavik to go to. The apartment as well as being stylish and having a hot tub is in a brilliant location where everything is on your door step. You could not ask for any more. Helga's hospitality and her kindness definitely contributed to what was a wonderful stay in Iceland.
Great Experience - Thanks Helga. Both your husband and yourself were very welcoming! We can't wait to return to Iceland and hopefully one of your apartments!
Helga and her husband were excellent hosts! Although we arrived on a late evening flight this was no problem, with Helga happy to meet us at the apartment at night to show us around. We received a very warm welcome and were provided with excellent advise of what we should visit in the surrounding area. The apartment was lovely and spacious and even better than we had hoped. On the day we were due to leave Helga even allowed us to have a late checkout as there were no guests booked in to arrive that day - this was so kind of her and above and beyond what we would have expected! Thank you Helga for a wonderful stay!
Helga and her husband Snorri are really kind and helpful. This fabulous locates just in central, very convenient for us. Restaurant, supermarkt and stores are around. This apartment just make us feel like to be home.We do enjoy our trip in Iceland. Thank you!
Helga's penthouse is amazing, from the location to the interior. Enjoying cocktails from the hot tub on the rooftop balcony above bustling downtown Reykjavik was truly an unforgettable experience! Helga and her husband were wonderful hosts. Not only were they welcoming and helpful upon our arrival, but they also went above and beyond, by giving us directions and key suggestions on the wonderful sites and restaurants that Reykyavik has to offer. On top of that, we unfortunately forgot an adapter at the penthouse and Helgo immediately contacted us and scheduled a rendezvous to return it back to us before we left. We spent two nights at the penthouse and wish we had spent more! We are already planning our next visit to Iceland and it will include another stay at Helga's :)
Me and my Mum had a fabulous stay at this apartment over the Easter weekend. Helga and her husband really are the perfect hosts and were very helpful and friendly from the very moment we arrived at the apartment.
As for the apartment? It's beautiful, clean and exactly like the pictures. The location is also PERFECT. It's right in the heart of it all, with so many shops and restaurants whichever way you turn out of the door. The bakery a few doors down is also not to be missed!
Overall I would 100% recommend both Helga as a host and the apartment to anybody travelling to Reykjavik.
Thank you so much Helga (and husband - sorry I don't know his name!) for letting us stay and for making our time in Iceland so enjoyable!
