I have travel to 17 countries and have stayed in a full range of accommodations.

This space is easily within the top 3!

A place to rest and recharge.

Walkable / Kitchen fully stocked / 5 star Bedding, Towels & Duvets / Fold out couch / bed = 5 star

Main bus station is a 10 minute walk.

Best Smoothie in Iceland at the N1 Nesti (gas station) right down the hill and across the main road / circle.

“Very nice apartment close to the city centre”
Reviewed 26 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This apartment was very clean with a modern design and plenty of space for two. Although it is ground floor the neighbourhood is quiet with no disturbing noise at night. Jonas was in touch via e-mail before we arrived with details for our stay and access information. City centre was 5 to 10 minutes walk and lots of info from the apartment was helpful. Would definitely use this again.

Jonas was the perfect host. Not only was the apartment spacious, clean and comfortable but it happened to be several minutes walk from the bakery, supermarket and main shopping road.

No upfront payment was requested, which gave me a sense of legitimacy, considering the many other horror stories you hear.

The apartment had all the mod cons you'd expect and sufficient cleaning up material and detergents. There was an abundance supply of towels too. The DVD player required a reconfig.

All in all, I would definitely stay in one of Jonas' apartments if I was visiting Reykjavik again.

“Excellent apartment.”
Reviewed 6 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

This apartment had everything you needed. It was excellent.

Living:
One sofa and two chairs, large screen tv.
Bedroom:
Very comfy bed, amazing duvet and pillows.
Kitchen:
Everything you need.
Bathroom:
Amazing rain shower with a cool sink. Heated floor that dries up the wet room nicely.

General:
The heating is fantastic, especially with it being geothermal you can open the windows with the heating on without wasting energy. Keeps the air fresh.

The apartment is up the hill from the BSI bus terminal(airport transfers and trips). At the top of the hill is the famous church. We had a lot of snow which made the paths lethal. I would only recommend a winter stay to people who could manage it.

Here is a tour of the apartment(if it will work) via youtube. Apartment 102 Reykjavik.

Will we come back? Yes! We are looking at possibly this summer!

“Brilliant apartment, really well equipped, great location!”
Reviewed 7 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We took a short break in Iceland in October and stayed in the apartment. We actually booked the studio apartment but Jonas upgraded us as this bigger apartment was available. The location is ideal, short walking distance to various Reykjavik tourist attractions, Bonus supermarket and pick up locations for day tours. The apartment had absolutely everything we needed, including kitchen supplies, toiletries and recommendations of local shops and cafes/restaurants, and was really lovely and warm. Wifi very fast and easy to use. Finding the apartment and accessing it with the code supplied was easy. Ideal place if you want to do self catering in Reykjavik - much better than a hotel. Highly recommended - thanks Jonas!
