Great location, comfortable home

  • 4 of 5

We shared this home with another couple. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was sufficiently stocked. It would have been nice to have a few items in the kitchen such as trash bags and dish soap. But nevertheless the house was clean and comfortable and the neighborhood was quiet. Horde was quick to respond to all of our needs.

The location is perfect. We were very close to the center of town, the harbor, the pond. It was an easy walk to restaurants, shopping and sightseeing. I would definitely stay there again. We stayed 10 days and rented a car for 1/2 of our stay. We saw quite a bit of Iceland. Loved this country and loved the people ❤️

clean and well equipped

  • 3 of 5

I'd like to start by saying that we absolutely loved Iceland! We (my husband and two boys ages 15 & 8) choose to spend our last two nights in Reykjavik and I wish we choose just one night. The city is very small and quite easy to navigate. The location of the apartment is just a few blocks away from the city center with all the shops and restaurants. The street the apartment was on was not my favorite. I live in a city so nothing shocks me about seeing graffiti however this block was less then to be desired. It was my second choice of apartment as I did not act fast enough on my first choice. With that said the apartment itself was very clean, had a fully equipped although dated kitchen (we ate all meals out.) There where plenty of towels. What we didn't like was that it was a very dark apartment and needed some upgrading. I think it's perfect for some young single folks who are looking for the night life and prefer to sleep in. For our family coming from a beautiful house that we rented in the south and enjoying all the natural scencery it was a bit of a disappointment. The owners are very responsive to all email inquiries. I highly recomended the fish and chip restaurant across from the Volcano house, as well as eating at the Volocano house-both excellent traditional meals. We are already planning to come back to Iceland...the country is breathtaking!

Thank you for an easy, comfortable stay. Hordur was extremely attentive to our needs and we really appreciated it. We really appreciated the help you gave us throughout our stay. If we come back to Reykavik, we will be happy to stay at your lovely, convenient Home Away.

Very clean and comfortable apartment - close to city centre.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and comfortable and had all that we required for a 4 night stay. It is well laid out and quite spacious. Everything provided. Food is very expensive in Iceland so look out for the Bonus store nearby which we found to be the cheapest option. The kitchen is very well equipped.

The location is great for walking into the city (10 mins) and also for pick ups for tours which are at the hotel just round the corner.

A great base for exploring Reykjavik and Iceland - which are fantastic!

Great little apartment - close to everything in Reykjavik, plenty big enough for 2 adults and 2 teenage children. Very clean, warm and comfortable - Iceland was amazing and we had an all round brilliant holiday!
