Perhaps you are a bit cynical and wonder if this apartment could really be as good as all the reviews suggest. Don't! This is a really beautiful apartment in a great location with an absolutely wonderful host. We would return without hesitation.
We cannot think of an amenity that was missing. The kitchen has everything you might need. And the living room furniture is very comfortable after a long day of walking.
This apartment was perfect for our stay in Iceland! My wife and I were there for about a week and it was just what we expected. It's located in a quiet area but still an easy walk to downtown Reykjavik. If you rent a car there is plenty of free spaces on the nearby streets. The apartment and bed were very cozy and we cooked several meals and had everything there that we needed! A plus is that it was located very close to the Flybus terminal!
We stayed at Apartment 1 during the mid-end of March and have a fantastic time in Iceland. The apartment was easily accessible to both downtown and the main roads out of Reykjavik for our daily excursions. Jonas was pleasant, friendly, and was able to guide us in the right direction on things to do during our stay. We loved being able to cook or go out based on our mood. The TV with Netflix helped keep us entertained during the big windstorm our first night when we did not want to venture out. We will be recommending this location to all of our friends and family, and would love to visit again.
Apt. was a short 10 minute walk to central city location where you will find shopping/restaurants/attractions but in a very nice quiet area - so during the day you can easily walk to the busy city center but at night be in a peaceful quiet neighborhood - which is exactly what we prefer. Apt. is also an easy 5 minute walk to the BSI bus station where you can get transportation to/from the airport or take day tours with Reykjavik Excursions or rent a car. There is on street parking in this area so if you have a rental car that is very convenient but one is not necessary if you are staying in Reykjavik as it is a very walkable city. A Bonus supermarket is also a 5 minute walk (bring your own sturdy grocery bags). The apt. was spacious, spotlessly clean, and well furnished and contained everything you needed for your stay. Having the convenience of a washing machine/drier was very convenient so you can pack lighter. Food in Iceland is very expensive so it was wonderful to be able to cook meals in the comfort of the apartment. The owner has done a wonderful job with furnishing, and everything is very well maintained. A 5 Star apartment. The owner responds very quickly to all e-mails and is very helpful with any questions/suggestions. Highly recommend this apartment - you will not be disappointed.
I have used 3 apartments during 10days tour in Reykjavik, Iceland.
Among those, I am sure this apartment was the most spacious
Oh, and this apartment shown in website was not the one we have used.
I have reserved for this one, but there's some network problem? or watever.
anyway the owner Jonas O suggested another apartment close to the coastlines.
Actually I was running out of time, so we just try his recommendaton beyond his good reviews from others, and we mostly liked the place.
The place was only two blocks from to the Harpa and especially SunVoyager.
The owner's replying was quick and it was very convenient!
