When you arrive outside Hotel Klettur the apartment block is behind rather than next to the hotel. But easy to find. Really clean and well equipped, although we could only get one channel on the TV ... no matter, we didn't go to Iceland to watch TV. Just a few mins walk into the city centre, which is small and easy to navigate. The shops, bars and restaurants are all along one Main Street. We did the Golden Circle and Blue Lagoon tours through Grayline - really efficient A fab trip and we'd definitely come back and definitely stay in Bjorn's apartment again

Great location, only a few minutes walk from the town. Very homely and loved the fact there were blankets to cuddle up with on the sofas. I had taken salt, pepper, tin foil and dishwasher tablets but these were all in the kitchen already and I was pleased that there was a washing machine as it made packing so much easier knowing I would be able to wash clothes if needed. Very clean and warm (we had to turn the heating off most of the time). Would highly recommend a stay here and I'm sure we will be back at some point. Thank you Bryna.

Just steps from the Hallgrimskirja, restaurants and attractions yet very quiet. Fully equipped kitchen, room to stretch out. Owner has thought of everything you need for a pleasant stay and was very responsive. We hope to return and stay again. Highly recommended!
