Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great location, walking distance to all that you need. Saemi and Magga (the owners) are extremely helpful and very nice. Lovely clean and well furnished apartment with supermarkets a few hundred yards away, loads of bars and restaurants within 10 mins walk.

Wir hatten das drei Zimmer Apartment im EG. Das Apartment ist sehr stilvoll eingerichtet mit viel moderner Kunst, Fotografie und antiken Möbeln. Jedes Zimmer ein Unikat und doch alles sehr gemütlich und praktisch. Das dritte Schlafzimmer ist im Souterrain und nur über eine enge Wendeltreppe zu erreichen und daher leider nicht barrierefrei (war für uns jetzt kein Problem). Lage top. Innerhalb von 10 min zu Fuß gibt es zwei große Supermärkte, erreicht man Innenstadt und Hafen. Parken direkt auf der Straße vorm Haus kostenfrei möglich. Vermieter wohnen direkt im Haus und sind super freundlich und hilfsbereit, aber unaufdringlich.

Stayed in the top floor apartment for three days. The quiet location is good with nearby restaurants, large supermarkets and tourist attractions. It's an easy, pleasant walk to the centre. Good quality beds and good value for Iceland. Friendly, helpful owner who even dropped by to tell us the Northern Lights were doing their thing one evening. Parking is a bit busy but we never had a problem finding a nearby spot. Laundry facilities are available on site.

Four adults shared this two bedroom, one bath, apartment in Reykjavik and found it roomy, well appointed and extremely well located. The apartment also had a third bedroom option if needed.The apartment was within walking distance of many of Reykjavik's high lights and the owners Saemi and Magga were most gracious and accommodating, checking in with us to ensure that we were well looked after. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone travelling to Reykjavik and would certainly stay there again if we returned to the city.

If you're looking for accommodation or somewhere to base yourself in Reykjavik then stop looking because it doesn't get any better than this. I would recommend this beautiful place to anyone staying in south west Iceland every single time, without hesitation. The day of our initial booking we had a friendly email from the owners Saemi and Magga to confirm our booking and with some extra information about the place, driving time from the airport, etc. Closer to the time we also had messages checking our arrival time, group size etc. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Saemi, shown around the beautiful apartment and given some local info about Reykjavik and the area. The apartment is beautiful. It's a warm, spacious and beautifully furnished 2 bedroom third floor apartment right next to the old harbour, and within easy walking distance of all of central Reykjavik. The beds were fanastically comfortable (both my partner and I, and my parents slept VERY well, which made getting up in the mornings to go sight-seeing a little difficult!). The kitchen was well appointed with everything we could need, and easily big enough for cooking for 4 people. There was even a drawer full of tourist brochures, maps of Iceland and multiple travel adaptors in case we needed them. As well as the free wifi. Since Iceland can be quite an expensive place we really appreciated being able to do some of our own meals in the apartment. To that end there are 3 large supermarkets all within an easy 400-500m walk of the apartment, 2 are open late and one is 24hr. If I am so lucky to visit Iceland again I would look forward to staying here again. If I have friends travelling there I would strongly encourage them to stay here. And to anyone who has made it to the end of this review and is still unsure, please do yourself a favour and stay here.
