This is such a treasure find for those on a budget. It's a very affordable and cozy self-catering apartment. The location is very good, next to the central shopping street of Laugavegur. Most of Reykjavik's attractions are within walking distance (the church, the lake, the harbor, the seaside). The restaurants are also close by (Resto, Reykjavik Grill). The apartment itself... More

The apartments were well equipped with everything we needed (all kitchen equipment, towels, bedding and cleaning equipment). It was... More

This is a lovely family run block of apartments and we found the staff to be extremely helpful and friendly. We were upgraded to a family suite which was very clean, spacious and well equipped.

Sadly we didn't have a room ready for check in yet but we were allowed to store our luggage while we found breakfast and did some exploring.
