                                                                                                      The pictures do not do this apartment justice. It is very large by European standards. The view is lovely, especially in the mornings. There is ample hot water for the shower, which is very large and has a nice "rain shower" head. There are shelves in the shower, which I find typically lacking in European showers, to hold soap, shampoo, etc. Bottles of Aveda shampoo and conditioner were provided. The bedroom is spacious and the bed comfortable. The pull out sofa bed was also comfortable and easy to convert. There is ample storage throughout the apartment. It was very nice to be able to cook some meals, as restaurant prices are higher in Iceland than we have found travelling elsewhere around the world. There are enough pots and pans for most home cooks, along with basic spices and utensils. There is a corkscrew. The dishwasher was a real luxury. The clothes washer and dryer both came in very handy and worked well. They hold 6kg per load, which is large for Europe. Laundry detergent was provided. The Wifi worked well and it was fantastic to have a secure, covered parking space, as parking is not free in the city center. The main areas of interest to tourists are very close by, from only a few minutes by foot to about 30 minutes to the area where the whale watching boats depart (this is at a typical walking pace). The buses are less than five minutes by foot. There are plenty of places to eat nearby and a Bonus supermarket about 5-10 minutes away (best prices by far). The only negative, and it is a minor one considering the rest of the apartment's positive aspects, is that there were crumbs on the couch and table from the prior occupants. Instead of relying on people to properly clean the apartment after staying, I would suggest including a non-optional cleaning charge and have the entire apartment deep cleaned by a professional. As of now, a professional does do the "heavy" cleaning, such as the bathroom, laundry, etc. but renters are allowed to wipe down the counters, vacuum, etc. when they leave to avoid a 30 euro cleaning fee. All in all, this apartment exceeded expectations and we would gladly stay here again and have already recommended it to friends and colleagues. Finally, I cannot say enough good things about Bjorn. He was very prompt, patient, and courteous. His employers are very fortunate to have him as their representative.
