“Lovely compact apartment”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Booking with Jonas through TripAdvisor was fine with good communication with Jonas, on arrival at the BSI bus terminal, it was just a five minute walk to the apartment and the same to downtown Reykjavik, Apartment had all we needed, and was very well equipped, there was even tea,coffee etc already in the apartment. Met Jonus once during the stay, and he suggested one or two places to visit that we would not have thought of.
It was ideally situated for day trips from the bus station with Reykjavik excursions or walking down town for the shops bars and restaurants etc. We stayed here for our 40th Wedding anniversary, and had a brilliant time. The WIFI was great and allowed us to post our fantastic photos on FB.

“Everything we needed - great location !”
Reviewed May 13, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The acid test of any review - would we stay there again ? The answer is a definite yes !
For a couple looking for a self-contained apartment in Reykjavik, this place is ideal.
Conveniently located a 10 minute walk from the BSI Bus terminal (very handy for the airport) and very close to the city centre, the apartment was bright, modern, clean and well equipped. My first impression on walking through the door was "wow - this place is tiny". However, it's a deceiving setup. The apartment packs an awful lot into a small area and yet manages to feel remarkably spacious - it's a real-life Tardis. Jonas himself was extremely helpful and very responsive. He helped us to get an excellent car rental deal (thumbs up for Geysir Car Rental !). Initially I had worried that Jonas didn't ask us for a deposit but those worries were unfounded. Jonas turned out to be a genuinely nice guy that I am more than happy to recommend to anyone. So go and enjoy Reykjavik !!!

“Perfect little apartment in a great location”
Reviewed May 11, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This couldn't have worked out better for us. We got the FlyBus from the airport (3500 ISK per person return for the fare) which took us to the BSI Bus Terminal in Reykjavik. The apartment was a 10-12 minute easy walk from the terminal, which was brilliant.

The studio apartment itself is superbly designed and although compact, it has absolutely everything you need and still has a feeling of space and light. It is perfect for a couple or solo traveller and the location is superb. The main shopping/eating and sightseeing areas in the city are within walking distance of the apartment and there is a local bakery just down the road which does great bread and cakes.

The bed in the apartment is so comfortable and all the linen is provided, including towels. It is immaculately clean and very quiet and safe at night.

I would certainly recommend this place and the owner, Jonas, is a lovely man who helped us with our hire car and made great recommendations for sightseeing and restaurants. He responded to our communications very promptly and was always on hand to help us if we needed anything. Overall, I can't fault this place and my partner and I have enjoyed staying here and would recommend you try it too!

My friend and I had a great experience for my birthday traveling to Iceland. This was the perfect place to stay. Very modern, clean and convenient to get to the bus station and many tours. Easy walk to the grocery store as well as shops.The owner came and changed a light bulb for us and provided us with information on local geothermal spas. Would stay here again in a heart beat. Thank you!

“Wonderful apartment!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

My husband and I stayed at this apartment for 4 nights and it was absolutely perfect for us. The apartment is located just a couple of blocks from the bus depot which was convenient for us since we took the Flybus into town from the airport. It only took us about 10 minutes to walk to the apartment from the bus depot with our luggage. It is also about a 5 or 10 minute walk to the central area of downtown. Extremely well-situated for tourists, yet on a quiet street so we got a good night's sleep. The apartment itself is great: very clean and modern design. The bed was very comfortable, however there were only 2 small thin pillows. It would have been nice to have had 4 pillows (2 per person). The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare a few simple meals, and the living room was comfortable and spacious. We appreciated the travel guidebooks and plenty of DVDs to choose from. The bathroom was also quite spacious, although I would have preferred a shower with a closing door so that water did not get all over the floor. Also, there were just 2 sets of towels (1 set per person), and it would have been nice to have had more. I guess I just like to use more towels than I normally do when I'm on vacation. I would definitely recommend this apartment and we would love to have the opportunity to come back to Reykjavik and stay in here again.

Fantastic rental. Very close to downtown Reykjavik. A five-minute walk to the bus station, which is critical for any tours you want to take, as well as the airport shuttle.

The rental had all amenities, was very clean, and the owner was fantastic. The booking process was very easy, as you are supplied a code for the front door. Additionally, the price was affordable and, in some ways, less expensive than a Reykjavik hotel room.

I look forward to returning someday! Highly recommended.
