Spacious and comfortable central accommodation

4 of 5
Four of us stayed for a week in September and were very satisfied with the accommodation. Convenient for walking into the city or to the harbour, with a supermarket next door and tour and airport pick up point right outside the door. There was everything we needed in the kitchen and we especially liked the coffee maker!

Hverfisgata apartment, Reykjavik

4 of 5
Lovely apartment in a great location - you can walk straight out into the city centre to shop, eat and drink and see the sights. The flat is clean, well equipped and comfortable. The main bedroom (double bed) is fantastic, the 2nd bedroom (2 single beds) is a bit small with nowhere to put your luggage though it was comfortable enough. We hired a car and the car park a couple of door up from the flat is safe and secure and only ISK 1000 -1250 overnight.
