We stay during the month of June at the Grettisborg Apartments and found a very clean warm and helpful atmosphere. It's centrally located right downtown in the middle of everything. We contacted them before we got to Reykjavík Iceland and they were very helpful and giving us the information we needed!

I stayed with my husband and two kids at Grettisborg for four nights. The location was great, short to bus station, restaurants, swimming pool, shopping, museums and more. The apartments were clean, comfortable and we all loved it. Despite being down town we never heard any city sounds. We would love to stay there again when we visit Reykjavík.

We stayed here 2 nights. It was a great size for the 2 of us. We were able to secure streetside parking after paying hours, so never had to pay for parking. It's a very easy 5 minute (or less) walk into town and to the Hallgrímskirkja church. Be advised that the church closes at 5pm, we just missed it....

We have just come back from a few days in a one bedroom apartment and would definitely stay again. It was always warm and cosy to come back to after our long day trips, and in a very good location. Cant think of anything we would change.

Stayed here at end of 2014 with another couple and really enjoyed it. It was a one bedroom apartment and we slept on the sofa bed whilst they had the room which was very economical. Well thought out design and room was clean and adequately stocked. Loved the comprehensive welcome book which is written with flair and humour! Very good...

Just spent a great few days in these apartments. Warm, clean and right beside the main shopping street and a ten minute walk from the harbour area. Lots of pubs and restaurants close by. I would definitely recommend them.

Five of us rented two aparments here and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Upon our arrival we was very warmly greeted by Rosa who then showed us around the two apartments. The apartments are really warm and spotlessly clean and we was very happy with them. One of the apartments was over two floors with a bathroom, kitchen, lounge,...
