Nice apartment in heart of the city
Good apartment close to city centre (all places of interest walking distance). They have several apartments in the town & the one allocated may be different to what you see in pictures. However all apartments seem to be of good quality

Great location but room for improvement
Overall, I was pleased with my stay at the downtown apartments (Ingólfsstræti 8). It was very convenient for exploring Reykjavik and also perfectly located close to Bus Stop 6, where both airport shuttles and tour buses pick-up/drop-off. Restaurants and shops are also right down the street, as well as a grocery store across the street. Because these are apartments and not a traditional hotel, it's self check-in. I found the instructions clear when it came to using the door code and then accessing your key in the security box. The biggest drawback of this was the lack of bag storage. My flight arrived in Reykjavik at 4am and I was stuck with my bag until check-in at 3pm. Perhaps a storage cabinet could be added outside of the 2 apartments? When I did check-in, there was still dirty water in the sink and wet spots on the floor, but as a whole the apartment was clean. It was nice having a kitchen but I did not get to use it much. And while the apartment is fairly spacious, the bathroom is really small; therefore, it's difficult to shower without water spilling onto the floor. There was no floor mat in the bathroom and no extra towels; only a squeegee to try to push the water away from the toilet and back into the shower. Normally I wouldn't mind not having daily cleaning service, but because of the wet floor in the bathroom and having only 1 towel for the entire stay, that was inconvenient. Again, I was happy with my stay overall, but there's room for improvement.

The good things about this property were a) the location being near lots of restaurants and pubs; b) the size of the apartment; and c) the service I received on the telephone. The bad things were: a) the lack of greeting package that would show you how to work the TV (I am somewhat tech savvy); and b) the stairs up to the apartment were incredibly steep.

Need better upkeep
We stayed at Church View apartment. The location is superb. The unit itself is styled as Scandinavian so it is tastefully design. However, the place does not have proper upkeeping and maintenance. Firstly, the outer locks to enter the building is soo difficult to open (and we were afraid everytime we went out, we would be locked out and had to call a locksmith). Then, the door handle to enter the unit is almost broken so another scare to have. Overall, it is a nicely designed and located, but too bad it does not stay in a good shape due to lack of maintenance.

4/10 Fair

Reykjavik and Iceland were great, but...
It appears we experienced a bait and switch scenario. The unit we booked based on the photos on the Expedia site was not the unit, nor the address where we stayed. What was supposed to be a bright and open apartment turned out to be a cramped hole in the wall. The location was great, but the unit was the pits. Moral of the story - check that what you booked is what the local company gives you.
