The Studio apartment had a problem with the main door in the sense that it let in a huge draught, so we had to cover it every night with a towel. The apartment was clean but there were stains on the sheets, and the only place to put your clothes was in a small wardrobe. A chest of drawers would...

If you unlucky enough to land a ground floor room in the lobby area as we did then forget about getting any sleep. People coming in and out the lobby arriving and leaving at all hours sound as if they may as well be in the room with you, that i could just about deal with but people in the...

The studio flat was in a good location and very handy which was a bonus. I don't know if we stayed there just before its being done up but to me it just felt really run down. The blind on the back of the door was horrible and I can't help but feel it wouldn't take long to fix! We...

We got a newly renovated apartment (3 persons) on top of the building where we could see the sea and the mountains from our window. A short distance to the city centre and everything worked out perfectly with the arrangements.

Not much more to add that hasn't already been said. Stayed for five nights. Heavy snow everywhere but the apartment snug and warm. Very damp tho - the condensation from our warm basement room ran down the walls and the windows and frames were soaking wet. However the back garden is full of new double glazed units so I presume...

Dear tomthetank67, Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. I am delighted you enjoyed your time at Stay Grettisgata. Windows are being replaced which hopefully fixes the condensation problem. Parking can sometimes get tricky although like you said if you know where to find the free parking spots in the area the problem is solved. We...

I stayed for a few nights last November and was pleased with the apartment. They are self contained and equipped with everything you need. Free WiFi worked well and the location was excellent. I felt safe and the room was comfortable, warm and clean. The guttering was leaking onto the outside steps hence I used them with care but otherwise...

We spent the night in one apartment with a huge bathroom, kitchenette on the first floor. It was clean, comfortable and spacious. I can totally recommend staying there. The apartment is about 10 min walk to the main church and another 5 min into the main Street of Reykjavik with hipster bars and shops. Just around the corner you find...

The room is large, bathroom is tiny (even by European standards). Directions are clear on where to find everything you need. Did find it odd that we NEVER saw anyone who worked at the Stay Apartments - so that if we did have a question we would have been out of luck. Good for the self sufficient / confident traveler.

Dear travelpa1600, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. As much as we would like to meet our gests; we are a minimal service hotel and do not have a manned lobby. This is how we are able to keep our prices so low. You are right that this may not be suitable for all travelers. Although...
