Reviewed 17 June 2014

The outside makes you wonder but inside these apartments are spotless, compact, modern and well laid out with comfortable beds. We had a basement apartment which was small but included the kitchenette and was quite particularly over the weekend when I gather it can get noisy in the city. They are set back from the main street but close enough to be within walking distance of the city center and also a couple of restaurants. We found the Roadhouse to do good burgers only a street away. The key system worked well and it was there waiting for us when we arrived. I would recommend for couples - if you like the reception/concierge treatment this is not for you as they apartments are not staffed, for everyone else a great value deal in Iceland.

I would have scored higher if there had been a little feed back via email as I was arriving quite late in the evening as mentioned on my booking and had no idea how to contact anyone on arrival, however someone happened to be leaving as I arrived and showed me my room key. The room was a little damp and the TV was small with only a couple of channels. The bed was very comfortable and the location to 101 (main high street) very good. Bathroom very big and clean but the sink was slightly blocked. Fire exits good, and cooking facilities good. If it was a little cheaper would consider staying again.

After staying in a much nicer (and cheaper!) apartment with another company a few days earlier, we were let down by how beat up this place looked. Big stains on the couches, deep scratches in the floor, empty nails on the walls where someone had removed (stolen?) the decor, cracked windows "repaired" with duct tape. Add on top of that the fact that it was across the street from an active construction zone that started work early in the morning and the fact that it was a bit farther (15-20 minutes) to walk to the center of the city than our previous place, and we were glad we were only staying for one night. At least the staff was friendly.

Einholt apartment is rather nice place to stay. I was surprised by the system of check-in - indeed there is nobody at reception desk. If you booked an apartment - they leave a key and you are welcome. Room design is really attractive, especially I liked the bed, there is also a small kitchen inside the room with everything you may need to cook (as it is an apartment - of course there is no any cafes or canteen and conformably no breakfasts in the mornings. An apartment is vast, bathroom is also in excellent condition. I think it may be a good variant for couple!

Our apartment was lovely! Two single beds in the bedroom and a sofabed in the lounge. It was more than big enough for four adults, with a full kitchen as well as dining table and chairs and breakfast bar!

The location was ideal, close to the bus station and walking distance to laugavegur - the main street.

It is a self service apartment, so I am not sure how it works if you need assistance, but we were fine.

Four of us stayed in the two bed apartment which was really clean, spacious and modern. It's conveniently located for the Main Street and waterfront. Previous comments about the look of the outside of the apartments looking tired are true but no issue once you get inside. Good value for money as well.

One of party injured herself and the management were accommodating and friendly with their responses easing our stay.

The only gripe was that currently there is some building work going on opposite which was noisy on weekdays from 8:30. (No probs at the weekend)

We stayed here for one night before setting out to travel round Iceland. On first arrival we were not keen on the surrounding area or the exterior of the building - it seemed quite tired/run down. However, inside the building was much nicer. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The furniture, bathroom etc was modern and in very good condition. There is no reception service at the apartments - after putting in a passcode (which we were given in advance) at the main door, we saw our room key was left out for us so we could let ourselves in. The place is about 1-2 mins' walk from the centre of Reykjavik and was surprisingly quiet, given its central location. It was good value for money and we would choose it again if staying for a night or two.
