“Good value for stay in Reykjavik”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Compared to other lodging in Reykjavik, we got a bargain to stay at North Star apartments. It's been recently renovated and in pretty good shape. We were fortunate to run into the building manager when we arrived, who helped get us situated earlier than the posted check-in time. Good wifi, local TV service, and kitchenette. Hot water is a little sulphuric and you don't want to wear any silver jewelry when in contact with the hot water. If you want a concierge and someone to always be available, this place isn't for you. If you want a good deal for a apartment-style accommodations close to Reykjavik, look no further.

One downside is that it's about 5 km from the middle of town and the Flybus wouldn't let us get off here. I tried to get them to let us off at the Hamraborg bus stop, but no dice. We had to grab a taxi from the BSI terminal for 2500 ISK because weekend public bus service is rather disappointing in Reykjavik (next bus from BSI was a 4-hour wait!!) Rather than deal with the buses, we just walked to/from town while we stayed in town. The walk is nice around the bay inlet and through the park that surrounds Perlan. Would have been perfect to have bikes available.

good location, close to the very nice swimming pool and in walking (5km) distance from Reykjavik, fantastic view from the windows, balcony. All necessary equipment for cooking. Very clean. Hot water with a good pressure in bathroom. Powerful hair-drier. Temperature of radiators in a room you can adjust as you like. Very nice impression, thank you very much for Alexander who was assisting us with a lost luggage. Very-very good quality for the money paid!

Room Tip: Ask for room 406 - best view right from the bed)))
