A very clean, functional, and well located space in Reykjavik. Getting access was very simple and overall an excellent experience. Would definitely stay there again!
I didn't meet Karen but the check in was easy. The apartment was like in the description, clean and well-equipped. Even had some breakfast stuff for us in the fridge. Well located!
A good & clean apartment close to the city.
O apartamento é exatamente como nas fotos. Bastante confortável e fica a 10 minutos de caminhada até a área central de Reykjavik. Karen foi muito atenciosa e nos sentimos em casa. Ela deixou-nos leite, pão, manteiga, chás e café, o que foi perfeito para o café-da-manhã. Recomendo a quem visitar Reykjavik.
The apartment was really comfy and cosy and a great location to explore Reykjavik. Karen left cheese, bread, milk and coffee which was great. Easy check-in/check-out instructions. Would recommend!
Overall a great stay. There was a mishap on our early morning arrival - the previous guests did not leave as early as they told the host and the host could not arrive to the residence to drop off keys in time for our arrival. Consequently, yet luckily, the nearby hotel allowed us to leave our luggage with them while we strolled through town for a few hours. When we finally met the host, she picked us up from the hotel and gave me cash for a little less than half the total stay's price as compensation for the mishap.
Since we were also scheduled for a tour soon and I wanted to change into different clothes and shoes but the apt wasn't available, she offered to drive me to the nearby public pool house and pay for my entrance fee for the inconvenience. Since the apt wouldn't be ready before our tour, they offered to keep our stuff and drop it off at the apt for us. While waiting for the tour guide to pick us up, I realized I had left my wallet in my luggage. The hotel nearby let me use their phone and the host's husband kindly drove back just in time for me to get it.
After finally getting into the apt, the host was still reachable. The place is really clean and tidy with guides, phone numbers, and recommendations printed and laminated. The bathroom sink is a little too tiny even for my 5 ft. 1 in. Self, but it's a sink, so whatever. Never used the kitchen, but everything was clean and well-maintained. The wifi on our laptop stopped working at night and into the next day even after restarting the laptop and router. However, our phones still worked, so that was fine.
We also forgot to request later checkout ahead of time, but the host kindly accommodated us as best she could before the next guests.
I'd stay here again as its a little removed from the center but provides a nice retreat and a healthy walk and the host was very reasonable and helpful.
Wonderful apartment well situated to explore Reykjavik. Karen left us some cheese which was the perfect snack after an exhausting travel day! It made us feel better immediately.
I highly recommend this place!
Karen's apartment was really nice and cosy. Recently renovated as described in the airbnb site and very clean. it is very well located, within walking distance from the center. the neighbourhood was very quite. We appreciated a lot the bread and butter, cheese and milk, tea and coffee that were there waiting for us especially when we arrived very late in the night. Karen was very helpful with instruction on how to find the house. She also left many nice suggestions for places with nice food that are her favorite choices.
We had a great stay at Karen's with everything we needed. Even though we didn't get to meet Karen, the stay was smooth. The apartment was clean and had everything including breakfast included. Thank you!
Very comfortable apartment and equipped kitchen. The place is convenient for picking up by bus. Karen prepared the bread and milk before I lived in. Thanks for her kindness. It is a nice experience!
Host Karen and her family has been a pleasure although we have not had occasion to meet personally, but communication has been good and the house are very well kept. Recommended to all!
