We booked this hotel cheap and cheerful when we were going Reykjavik, we originally booked a hostel with a shared bathroom and then decided to cancel as we wanted a private bathroom. So we booked this hotel for a really reasonable price, approx £50 a night. When we got there we were absolutely thrilled at how gorgeous our apartment was,...

No elevator. Snowstorm ended an hour before we landed, 50 or 70 year storm dumped about 2 feet of snow. It didn't go away for the week we were there so the location to the shopping and eating area of town was just super. The apartment was fully furnished, had a satellite TV, and was basically a one bedroom studio....

It's ok for a few days, very basic but it has everything you need. Walls are thin so you can hear your neighbors... if you are able to book it for less than $120 it's good... if you pay More, it's not worth it. The location is good, looks far on a map. It it's actually good, couple of block...

Great location, short walk to bars and restaurants. Room was modern and had everything we needed for a 3 night stay. Even though it is a self service check in contact prior to our stay via email was good and got a quick reply. Only one parking space due to the location, easy to park on the street but is...

We stayed here for 1 week in March. Our first time in Iceland. Great place, comfortable, clean and right downtown close to many of the sites-Harbour, Churches, shopping, Grocery Store (Bonus) etc… Has all the right amenities for the do it yourselfers. Highly recommend this place. We will come back to stay and hope it is available.

My mother stayed at Stay Apartments Gréttisgata for 5 nights. Unfortunately there was heavy construction work on the property (a new corrugated iron front was added) between 8:00 and 18:00 which she was not informed about before her arrival. Building material and dirt everywhere on the property, partly with sharp edges, noisy machines cutting the iron, open unsecured gully covers...

Stayed here for 3 nights in Nov in an apartment down the road due to building works. We were sent an email confirmation confirming this months in advance. Had a lovely stay in a one bed apartment. All facilities that we could ask for even Netflix for a chilled night in after being out all day. We stayed in Grettisgata...

We arrived to the place to collect the keys to find it an actual building site! It is being completely gutted out and scaffolding is everywhere including builders...we couldn't believe it when we actually realized that that is the building. There is not a note/email/FYI anywhere in my confirmation to expect a building site upon arrival so not a good...

The apartment we stayed in was down the road. Instructions to get in were good but needed to be - sequence of three keys need once you find the place. Remember to wait outside 43 for coach pickups.

The first thing I want to say about this place is - they absolutely will NOT accommodate an early check in. So if your plane lands at 5 am, like ours did, plan on wandering the city until the 3 pm check-in and don't bother asking if you can get in early. Don't use the luggage storage room - it's...
