This was the perfect place for our weekend stay in Iceland. We were three travelers in one apartment and they provided us with three twin beds. It was a great surprise since one of us had been expecting to sleep in a pull out couch. We got in at 11 am and they safely stored our luggage before our check in time.
The location is fantastic - walking distance to shopping, eating, and a bus stop that has 5 different lines. Parking is free and easy to find in this neighborhood. The hosts were friendly and we were given lots of tips for the area by one of their employees. We would stay here again!
We stayed here twice--on the first night of our trip, and the next to the last night. Different rooms each time, both were well maintained, clean, and handy. The rooms are in the side "annex", at the right of the picture. The area is quiet, and a perfect location.
