“Perfect”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We spent one night in the ground floor apartment during a circuit tour. It was spotless, modern, well equipped, very comfortable, warm and exactly what we needed, and the location couldn't have been more convenient. And the wifi worked! An email directly from the manager ensured we found it easily and got access via the key safe, and a friendly staff member phoned soon after we arrived and popped in to collect payment and ensure we were satisfied. I can't find a thing to pick fault with - it was just a totally pleasant and painless experience. Highly recommended.

“Awesome choice!”
Reviewed 2 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We travelled through London and Iceland and stayed at airbnb / guesthouses and this was by far my favourite. Well-equipped (the kitchen had everything we could ask for and more), clean, spacious, cosy and comfortable - 2 nights wasn't enough. Akureyri is amazing and our stay here just made everything perfect.

The owners are lovely lovely people - friendly and warm hosts, and with real love for what they do. You can feel that they're truly sincere in wanting to make your trip a good one. It was our pleasure to meet with them, and to be their guests. I really appreciated the effort they put into making the apartment welcoming - little touches like the tea box, little packet of creamer in the fridge for your coffee, the well organised information booklets and map, were all really nice. We also did 2 tours with them and would definitely recommend them!

The only thing I'd caution is that you can hear the people upstairs quite clearly sometimes, if they're stomping around, but it was never so bad that we had to call Andreas for help (although this was noted in the information booklet).

All in all, Akureyri and this place are awesome and I wish we had had more time to spend there! I miss it already.

“Wonderful location, plenty of space for a family of 4”
Reviewed 29 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed in this apartment for 3 nights and were very happy to be so close to the city center, for the well stocked kitchen, large bathroom, and washer/dryer. We were traveling through Iceland for 9 days and this was our kids' favorite place to stay.

“Beautiful apartment in great location”
Reviewed 17 January 2012 for a stay in August 2011

The apartment was very clean. Good size and had all amenities we required. Kitchen was good size and well stocked. We especially enjoyed having the washer and dryer since there are no public laundries in Iceland. We had intended to stay only 2 nights but we enjoyed the apartment so much that we chose to stay longer and do some extra driving to get to out next few sight-seeing areas. the owner is very friendly and responsive. The apartment is within walking distance of the main shopping area of the town.. Very convenient.
