We are a family of 5, including 3 teenagers. We fit comfortably in the apartment and enjoyed its amenities. There are 2 bedrooms and a pullout bed in the family room. The living area is spacious, the tv had netflix (which our children enjoyed) and the wifi was strong. My favorite part about the apartment was its location. It is located very close to both the Harpa and the main tourist street which contains several restaurants, coffee houses and even a grocery store. It is also less than a block from a wonderful bakery where we had breakfast every morning. We did not have a car and were able to walk everywhere we needed to go.

The house was just perfect, very large with a bedroom each, very comfy and all the mod cons. It was a home from home. The kitchen area was very well equipped and the large dinning table allowed us to eat in style every night. It was lovely and warm and very clean. Very modern and attractive and the owner was amazing at giving us all the info you could need on the local area for eating, shopping and sights to see. We used her recommendations lots. We hired two cars to tour round the area and the drive was big enough for both vehicles. It also has an amazing hot tub outside that we used a few times (once in the snow). Was just perfect and I would highly recommend.

We could walk to many different restaurants, bars and shops in the area. It has a nice view of the waterfront and even the Harpa. The beds were comfortable and the little balconies were nice to sit out on. We even saw the Northern Lights from them one night! The kitchen was equipped with the basics which was enough for us to have a nice breakfast everyday at "home". Communication was quick ,and any question we had was answered quickly. The only drawback was the parking spot. We had rented a van and the parking spot is in a courtyard that has a tight turn to get into. There was also a big construction site across the street that had made the road a bit narrower, so that made it a challenge. Overall the apartment was great. Thanks so much!
