Neighborhood was excellent, accommodations were accurate and outstanding. Helga was very professional and helpful. Highly recommend this location, in the heart of Reykjavik, extremely clean and great showers. Better than most hotels I have stayed at. The hot tub is a fantastic addition as well. Beyond my expectations.
Firstly the apartment is in a great location for bars, restaurants and shopping with a lovely coffee shop next door with amazing pastries - great size and feeling of space, tastefully done and has everything you need, plus the hot-tub! Helgar and Snorri were more than friendly and helpful on our arrival making us feel at home. Thanks both.
Helga's penthouse was the perfect way to start off our trip in Iceland. She kindly greeted us at the door even though our flight arrived very late and gave us the rundown of how to use everything. The space was clean, well-decorated, and, since it's in city center, within walking distance to all the places we wanted to see. Highly recommend!
We had a great experience with Helga and her property. She was very professional and responsive with us, communicated with us well before our arrival date, and gave us excellent instructions on how to check in and meet her. She was flexible with our arrival time. She gave us a tour of the place and gave us the keys. The place is ideally located in the most exciting part of the city, and provides a great view to watch people. The place is modern, clean, and very comfortable, and it seems larger than it appears in the pictures. There is lots of light in the apartment. The hot tub on the balcony is a great plus, we really enjoyed it on a cool night, and was a great way to relax at the end of a long day of travelling. I would certainly recommend this place.
Helga was very welcoming and apartment was as described/photographed.
Helga's apartment was fantastic. There was plenty of space and the open kitchen/living room area was very appealing. The hot tub was great after a day of hiking or getting caught in the rain. I could not have asked for a more perfect location. It was settled in between so many shops, restaurants, a food store, and a delicious bakery next door.
We really enjoyed our stay in the apartment. Lovely large space with a very comfy bed. Right in the middle of town with street and other parking available. Helga was there to greet us with some good tips on things to do. Great weekend.
So...this location couldn't be better and Helga was very nice, but there are some things that We would like to mention about the listing.
The listing is for 4 people, but really it's only for 2 adults and maybe 2 children on the blow up mattresses. We were not made aware of this until the day before checking in. We made it work, because it was our only option.
The hot tub, is not really a hot tub. It's a hot pot....a hot tub without bubbles and jets. Not a problem, just think the description needs to be changed. Also, we tried to use it and it doesn't get very hot.
The last thing that we wanted to mention is that for $300 a night it's very over priced. We run an Airbnb and have stayed at plenty and $300 is too much for a 1 bedroom apartment.
Things could be changed to make this a great listing. But, overall we had a nice time.
We began and ended our Icelandic road trip in Reykjavik, at this great apartment in a perfect neighborhood. The apartment was quiet, clean, bright, and well equipped and we slept very well on the comfortable bed. Helga welcomed us and made a great restaurant recommendation. The apartment is located within walking distance of the main shopping street, the city center, and Hallgrímskirkja cathedral. Bernhöftsbakarí, the oldest bakery in Reykjavik, is located a few steps away. We highly recommend this apartment and would not hesitate to stay here next time we are in Reykjavik.
The apartment was more swanky than the photos, and the location is right in the middle of things. Helga and her husband Snorri made great recommendations - Kol had the best food and cocktails of the trip! - and were very thorough in showing us around the apartment and making sure we had everything we needed. The couch is super comfy and it was the perfect place to enjoy the city!
