The property was clean and well maintained with a well equipped kitchen. We ate mostly at the apartment and shopped at the local Bonus supermarket. Also very close to a flybus/excursion pick up and drop off point. We even saw the Northern Lights through the living room window!

The apartment is very close to Klettur Hotel for airport bus drop off / pick up and day tour pick up / drop off. It is also within walking distance of the Old Town (sights and cafes / restaurants) as well as a discount supermarket (Kronan). The apartment was spacious, clean, well equipped for any independent traveller, and quiet for a good nights sleep. We really enjoyed our stay in Iceland. Thank you so much Gudmundur for your very kind hospitality. With kind regards. Peter and Ann

It is walking distance to all of the main sights and there are many great restaurants nearby. The apartment itself is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Elsa was a great host and always responded to our questions very promptly. Would love to stay here again!
