Hi I am Sigurjón. My motto in life is: "the most important things in life aren't things .."
This apartment is exactly as its description newly refurbished very clean cosy warm and full of character a pleasure to stay there, in a quiet neigberhood away from nightlife noise, but very easy for you to access the nightlife if you want to, swimming pool 5 mins walk and cheap too, Bonus supermarket selling lots of fresh food every day 8_10mins walk on main high street along with a very good selection of shops selling gifts, food, tourist info, bars and cafes a very easy access to your apartment from them. When booking trips you can be picked up at hotel Baron a 5 min walk away and dropped off great after a long day sightseeing .
Sijainti lähellä keskustaa on hyvä. Olohuonekeittötila on tosi pieni. Makuuhuone on tilava, sänky mukava ja kaappitilaa hyvin. WC-suihku -tila on ahdas. Ikävin puoli on kylmä lattia. Mutta Sigurjón on hyvä isäntä(:
Sigurjón´s place is comfortable and has everything you need. It´s just two streets away from a very nice pool and you can walk anywhere else in town from the apartmet. Whenever I sent an email to Sigurjón, he replied within just a few minutes . Takk, Sigurjón!
With my final review I’ll give to the accommodation three stars of five:
- 1 for its location: Grettisgata is next to Laugavegur and the apartment is really close to the city center, Harpa and Hallgrimskirkja;
- 1 for its price: Iceland is quite expensive, but the fare for our stay has been very reasonable;
- 1 for the kindness of Sigurjon: unfortunately we haven’t had enough time to share with him (too many things to see/do in so little time), but he’s really kind and helpful.
The cons are that the apartment needs an overall renovation, especially the electrical system (sockets), the kitchen (hob and tableware), the bathroom (shower) and a proper television, something that got a bigger screen than just 14".
Sigurjón is an incredible host. He is very accommodating, personal, communicative. This particular flat was perfect for me, and in an excellent location. I would definitely stay with him again.
Great location and Sigurjón is very responsive and helpful. Watched New Year's Eve Fireworks from the balcony - one of the best spots in the city for that!
We stayed in Sigulon's apartment for 5 nights over New Year Day in Iceland. The apartment is well located, close to the main shopping street, where the supermarket is located, but away from the noise and traffic. It was very clean and comfortable. Heater in the apartment keeps us warm (very important in Iceland during winter) and the kitchen was well equipped. TV have english channels and wifi is fast as well. We went for several tours and the buses had no problems finding us at the address. Communication with Sigurlon during booking process, checking in and checking out was swift and easy. He patiently answered a lot of our questions throughout the entire process. We really enjoyed our stay in Iceland and will definitely stay at this apartment again if we return.
Sigurjon was very helpful - he sent me all the information I needed before arriving in Iceland. He strongly recommended the thermal swimming pool just 2 minutes away from the flat and it was a very interesting experience!
The location was brilliant as the apartment was close to the Hallgrímskirkja church. It was close to 2 supermarkets/convenient stores. One minor point was that the apartment was on a small street which normal tour coaches would not stop, so after each tour we had to walk for 3-5 minutes to get back to our apartment.
This is a great place. Completely clean, very comfortable bed, well-equipped kitchen, and of course a convenient location. It is almost next door to Hotel Leifur Eiriksson, making it easy to get picked up for tours. There are plenty of restaurants down the street, and a convenience store just opposite if you want to do your own cooking. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again when I return to Iceland.
Excellent central location. Sound proofing isn't great so you will hear the upstairs neighbours. The bathroom can be cold in winter. But the flat is very clean and has everything you'll need, including a very comfy bed. Overall great value.
The place Sigurjón has to offer is a very cool & cosy apartment located right in the middle of Reykjavík (about 1min walk from the main shopping street). Sigurjón is "all in" making sure that your stay is as close to perfect as possible!
I've only know Sigurjón for a short time, but ever since we stayed at his place in August of 2011, he very quickly became someone that I would call my friend. He is such a kind and gracious person. We had an amazing time hanging out with him in Iceland and would not hesitate to get in touch with him the second we decide to go back and visit. I've even recommended a few of my other friends to get in touch with him when they started planning their own Icelandic journeys.
Sigurjón is a very dedicated guy in everything he does. He is the type of host who takes extra steps to make his guests stay enjoyable and nice. Sigurjón is a real handyman who not only fixes things perfectly but designs spaces so that everything fits greatly. You van be sure to have a great stay at Sigurjón place.
Stayed at Sigurjón's Reykjavik apartment in July 2011. Absolutely loved the place! He came and met us with his daughter and gave us the key. It was a cozy stay in the dead-center of Reykjavik, just off the main shopping street Laugavegur. I highly recommend staying in Sigurjón's apt.!
