Wonderful contemporary apartment with fabulous views

5 of 5
The apartment had every thing we needed and more. Our host was very helpful and answered our questions promptly. I would stay in one of his properties again and recommend The Nest apartments to our friends.

Functional, small flat in central Reykjavík.

4 of 5
The flat is easy to reach, being only a few minutes walk from the bus station. It was clean and had most everything you’d need for a short stay. There is a communal cupboard you can leave your luggage in if your flight out isn’t till after checkout, which is great, otherwise you’d be lugging your bags around town.
