Nice, Warm and Kind. Hafdis is a great host, and her apartment is really great, just near the harbor, very quick to the most famous restaurant. She helped a lot in giving us information about where to go . Thanks a lot!
It's a nice house in a very nice aere of Reykjavik. It's a 20 minutes walk from the busstation, 5-10 minutes to the best dinning area and 10 minutes from the shopping street. It's a quiet neighborhood, while close to where it all happens. Also, car rentals are not far away, making it a good "hub" for traveling around Iceland.
Hafdís was very nice, but she had to work most of the weekend, so we had the flat to ourselves. When we did meet, she had good advice on where to go, and what to see:)
Our vacation stay was wonderful. Hafdis's apartment is excellent throughout.
We had a great stay in Hafdis apartment. We met Hafdis on arrival and once during our stay. The apartment is clean and comfortable, very centrally located and it was very nice to have a big off street car park.
Internet was fast and always available.
The neighbours were sometimes a bit noisy but apart from that we were very happy.
It was lovely spending time in the garden and balcony.
We had a wonderful stay at Hafdis' place, which is just a ten minutes stroll from down town Reykjavik. Her son was there to welcome us when we arrived, and Hafdis came by later that evening to say hello, which was nice. They both told us that they would be available if there was anything we needed. In fact no needs arose. The apartment was fully equiped with all the comforts, with a nice and personal touch to the interiors. We couldn't recommend it highly enough.
Our host was friendly and accommodating which made our stay very enjoyable. The apartment matched the online description and was centrally located, just a short walk from center city. There were a variety of convenient local options for food shopping, as well as an excellent bakery for breakfast and coffee (Jói Fel). All in all it was a very positive experience.
Beautiful, cheery apartment. We loved the sunny rooms, and the easy layout of the living space. But most of all, the location!! It was a beautiful, short walk to the harbour and the main shopping area. I always enjoyed this part of our day, walking to and from Hafdis' apartment. Hafdis has also done a great job of providing everything you need - I was thrilled to find a hair dryer which on my other travels around Iceland was hard to come by :) AND you get a private parking spot. The only thing to note is that if you have large suitcases you will need to keep them in the living room, as there is not any extra space in the master bedroom, and just a small space on the floor in the smaller bedroom. But if you're staying a while, there is a ton of closet space that you can put all your clothes in, which is super helpful.
We were so pleased that we stayed with Hafdis. What luck. Her place was bright, cozy and lovely and she made us feel so welcome. The location was excellent: within walking distance of the harbour and the centre of town. Also, she provided us parking off the street for our rented car.
We most appreciated that she helped with information about her favourite sights and eating places, and her taste was excellent.
We look forward to either visiting her in Iceland again....or her visiting us in Canada, in the future.
The apartment was very cute and comfortable. I especially liked the sunroom that was filled with artwork - perfect reading spot. The neighborhood was peaceful and quiet but within easy walking distance of restaurants, bars, and tourist attractions. Hafdís was kind enough to lend us a map of Iceland since we did not have any when we first arrived. Perfect size for my group of three.
Host was fine
I have known Hafdis Brands for years and have stayed at her lovely
home. She is a good honest person that I would trust witout reserve.
