Spotless apartment with excellent facilities (best shower I've ever used and even had a dishwasher!) located a stones throw away from the Main Street Laugavegur right in the centre of Reykjavík where you will find lots of restaurants, bars, shops and a supermarket. The fly bus and most of the excursion operators (such as Reykjavík excursions) will also pick you...

Stayed here on our first and third night in Iceland. While we stayed away for our second night (with our 2-day tour group) the host let us leave our belongings in the apartment :) Aside from this unforgettable customer service experience, I just wanna point out how cozy and homie the apartment is. We made simple breakfast with grocery bought...

Apartment was very well equipped and located. The price reasonable. The owner was very helpful, ready to react on our needs. She has also prepared a very useful guide of the city. If possible we will come back to this place.

We rented apartment #1 for our 3 night stay and it was perfect for the 4 of us. It is a studio with a bed and a pull out couch bed that our 10 and 13 year old boys used. Kitchen was useful and we loved the fact that there was a washer and dryer as we were on a...

The Grettisborg Apartments are perfect! We had a wonderful stay here early December 2015. We rented the 2 one bedroom apartments 5 & 6 on the top level. It was great as we were 2 couples - so we propped open the doors and we had the whole floor! Having the kitchen is great - as food in Iceland is...

You are definitely in a pretty good central spot to everything especially a bonus market! It helps a lot there is a kitchen as food and drinks is expensive at a restaurant. Good sized fridge and all the ikea utensils you'll need. We had apt 3 and that does have 2 shower heads and a holding spray but no bathtub....

The apartment is very convenient to walk to the main street filled with shops, it's only a little over a block to a convenience store. Getting the key was very easy. There is also a bus (Flybus+) from the airport that will take you directly to the apartment. We had a 1 bedroom apartment and there was a sofa in...
