Be very careful of the bedding arrangement.
The bedding configuration was deceptive and misleading. The description on the booking says 2 twin beds whereas in fact it's only one twin bed. For four adults, this is totally inadequate. Management where pathetic and wouldn't take responsibility of their incompetence when they reluctantly phoned back. I would never recommend this group to anyone. Seek clarification on the actual bedding configuration.

Our Stay at this place...
The apartment was centrally located in the heart of Reykjavík but was on a quite street so noise was not a factor. Ideal location made for an easy walk to restaurants, boutique shops and museums. Facility was clean and bed was comfortable. The manager of the place was efficient and prompt in her communication whenever we reached out to her if not too friendly.

Perfect stay, highly recommend.
Great roomy apartment with full kitchen and washing machine (very welcome after travelling through Europe). Everything we needed was available. Very close walk to main areas with bus stop number 10 very close for excursion pick ups. Great communication from owner with several emails giving cost saving tips for visit to Iceland, very informative. Easy check in, check out. Quiet apartment.

Great location
Quiet location, yet within walking distance to all Reykiavik's attractions and main bus station. Would only ask for extra pillows and towels since there is no daily service. Will be happy to stay there again.

Handy apartment in Reykjavik
Enjoyed our stay here and able to walk to tourist sites. Self-catering facilities excellent and provision of washing machine very handy. Sofa bed is older and not as clean and comfortable as others experienced in Iceland. "Free parking nearby" is on the streets and limited in time, so was disappointed as this was advertised on the site and the reason we booked this apartment over others.

Comfortable clean rooms and great location
The apartment is in a great location. It was clean and comfortable. Received an email with check-in instructions well in advance. The instructions were accurate. All the amenities provided were appreciated. A few other things could have gone better: 1. We had the booking for 3 people, but since the sofa-bed was for the third person it wasn't made. The linens, sheets, blankets were not left out - so we had to find them ourselves. 2. The check-in instructions said that we could store our baggage in the laundry room (which has a code lock on it) if we needed extra time in the city, but I wanted to check with the owners if we could take out the baggage at 3 PM after having checked out in the morning. Never received any response about this request - so we landed up having to drag the baggage to a parking garage some 8 blocks away. 3. Parking in Reykjavik isn't easy, especially on a Grettisgata if you have a standard transmission car.
