We stayed at Island Apartments 25 March-28 March. Warm, cozy, great price point, within walking distance to everything we wanted to see (even with our young twins and the cold weather we were able to walk around the city and see the sites from this apartment). There is a grocer just down the street, stove top in the apartment, as well as little refrigerator. Two nearby bus stops to catch excursions and restaurants galore in this area. Ingunn went above and beyond by watching our luggage after checkout so we could go out and explore, as well as providing a place for us to warm up and use the toilet after exploring was done and as we awaited our bus back to the airport. Definitely recommend this place!

For starters, the hosts are extremely nice and very communicative when we had questions! The location could not be more perfect for someone who wants to be near everything; direct access to top notch bakeries and restaurants, short walk to the shoreline (less than 5 mins and viewable from the corner), and walkable distance to the city centre for more sights and bus stops for tours (less than 10 mins). The room itself was just like the pictures, no surprises, which is always nice! Had everything we needed- nice bed, tv, refrig/freezer, microwave,stovetop, kitchenware and private bathroom. Another great feature was the couch (pulls out for extra sleeping) and the table. We would come "home" and review the day on the couch and eat our breakfast at the table- it made it feel like home! Location felt safe and the room was clean; housekeeping came once to empty trash and new towels.

I had a very peculiar situation, as I found myself in Reykjavik with my previous housing options unavailable. The owner of Island Apartments was extremely understanding about my situation and had a studio set up for me immediately. At first, I had only scheduled one night, but found myself unexpectedly needing a second, at which she was very understanding and allowed me to stay in the same room with little forewarning. This last weekend has been one of the worst of my life, and words can't describe how thankful I am to Island Apartments for being flexible, clean, and open for me to stay there.

If you're in Reykjavik, this is a fantastic location, just off Laugavegur - the main shopping street, and less than 1 km away from Hallgrimskirkja. The rooms are clean, with full amenities that would be needed for any length of stay. Absolutely recommend.

We spent two nights at this accommodation during our stay in Reykjavik. The location was perfect, in a very centric and parallel street to Laugavegur, the bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean, the fact we did not need keys made things very comfortable.

However...

The room we got was way smaller than what the images suggest, it had only space for a double bed and none of the extra furniture, sofas, and appliances were present, which is a real shame as the way the room looked in those pictures was key for us to decide to book this place.

After having spent a week travelling across Iceland, we were really looking forward to enjoying the spacious and trendy decorated apartment we saw in the pictures. Such dissapointment was significant enough for us to decide to remove 2 points from our rating

The apartment locates at the heart of Reykjavik, walking distance to all attractions. The host, Ingunn and her husband were very nice and provided promptly responses to all my questions! There is no front desk so it’s not possible to just leave your luggage’s there like the typical hotel. But it’s possible to leave the bags in their small office when the staffs are on site. We just used the luggage locker few blocks down in the parking garage 990isk that fit all 4 of our bags. We stayed in the second smallest studio that equipped with a small fridge and a microwave. That’s all we need! There are some steep steps leading to the apartments, not recommend for people with big roller luggage’s or need elevator access. We enjoyed our week long stay in this small studio, highly recommend for people that travel light!

We absolutely loved our stay here, and the host was so friendly! We were super grateful for early check in after a long day of travel. Bed was super comfortable and the apartment was surprisingly spacious. Nice shower and easy code-based entry. Location was close to a lot of Reykjavik restaurants and activities without being too noisy at night. Price was super reasonable and we'll definitely stay here again! We parked in the nearby Tradarkot parking garage.

Our location and amenities were excellent, very friendly welcoming by a manager who explained the workings of the studio as there is no concierge. Our communication with the manager was thru email then on . If we had any question, anything else , email was promptly answered. The place was also handy for making a quick meal because we enjoy the occasional home made food. The tours we scheduled were also happy with our location, easy pick up and drop off. We also enjoyed the quiet peace at night , all in all positive experience!

The location is great - right in the city center, the apartment is clean, it has comfortable beds. Kitchen is very well equipped, even had a toaster, microwave, etc. The owners respond within 15 minutes to anything you need and made us feel very welcomed. thank you!

We stayed 3 nights at Island Apartments during our honeymoon, and we were very happy with our stay. Our apartment was perfectly sized for a couple, and nicely equipped with everything we needed. Perfectly located in the center of Reykjavik, within close walking distance of restaurants, shops, cafes, bars, and just about anything you might want to see. The proprietress, Ingunn, is very attentive, helpful, and communicative. If you have a rental car, there's no dedicated parking, but it's fairly easy to find parking on the street (you'll want to download Parka, an Icelandic parking app). We would happily stay here again on a future visit to Reykjavik!

Walking distance to places of interests, and even to bus stops where the tours pick you up. Every morning we would to a nice cafe, or walk to a nice restaurant for lunch and dinner. The place has everything you need. We have a two year old, and the owners made sure we have everything we need. Maybe just an advice would be some hooks at the bathroom to hang towels, and a magnet for the door to stay open if you are carrying heavy stuff. Other than this, we had a lovely stay, and will come back in a heartbeat.
