Great property with stunning views and perfect location

5 of 5
Property had lovely views of old harbour and towards mountain. Situated close to the centre of the city which was only a 5 minute walk or so. Was in perfect condition with everything we needed. Would highly recommend

Lovely apartment, great location

5 of 5
We had a great stay here. The apartment is lovely and has great facilities. The apartment is in a great location close to town (approx 290 mins walk). We even saw the northern lights from the balcony which was an added bonus. Bjorn was a brilliant host and very helpful with great communication. The check in/ check out process is also very easy. The hotel just round the corner (hotel Klettur) is a well known stop for all tours and the flybus which is really convenient also. The only slight irritation of the experience was that when you arrive you have to make your own beds and clean the apartment including hoovering and cleaning the bathroom before you leave or are charged 30euros cleaning fee. We felt this was a little cheeky but nevertheless had a lovely stay.
