“Central, clean, just right.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

We have just returned from a weekend in Reykjavik and a weekend at Grettisborg apts.
We stayed in the studio apt, ground floor.
(2 adults 2 small children)
It was just right. The apartment had all we needed, it was clean, warm, had all self catering facilities.
Being central it took 5 minutes to walk to the shopping area and 10-20 minutes to walk to the waterfront (bearing in mind we were walking with two small children).
We were not bothered by any noises from the apartments above, or outside.
Would recommend to anyone, families, couples or friends.

Room Tip: We stayed in the studio room on the ground floor which was fine - the top two floors had a balcony w...

Great value for money. Very central location just off the Main Street but quiet enough to ensure a good nights sleep. Flats are stylish, clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Owners were extremely helpful and responsive and went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. I will recommend to all my friends and family!

This was a great place to stay. Having a full kitchen in a city that is expensive helped us save money to spend on other things. We also loved the radiant heated floors, having come from a warm climate it was especially nice to have a warm bathroom floor.

Room Tip: We were in Apartment One and there were lights shining into the bedroom so if you need total darknes...

Although I've never written a review for tripadvisor before, I felt compelled to write one for Grettisborg and our hosts after my partner and I spent a week there on our first trip to Reykjavik. The apartment was clean, in a perfect location downtown, comfortable, quiet, well appointed, and convenient to everything. It's a block away from the main drag in town, a five minute walk from the bus terminal that takes you anywhere in town you need to go, and a five minute walk from the local pool. The apartments include everything you could possibly need, and despite the fantastic location, on a relatively quiet street it is a peaceful experience and the absolutely perfect "home base" for a trip to Reykjavik.

To top it all off, our hosts were helpful, friendly, accommodating, and approachable. I really can't imagine having a better experience.

Room Tip: Apartments 5 and 6, on the top floor, have private balconies.

The appartment was clean, practical and situated in the middle of town close to stores and restaurants. Everything you needed was there inkluding washing mashine in a separate building. We were very pleased with the appartment.

First, the apt was clean and well furnished. Sigga, the hostess, was very pleasant. However, we were in Unit 7?. It was on the 'ground floor', which was really a basement with small (8" tall) windows that were at sidewalk level on a relatively busy street. The room was extremely hot, even though it was quite cool outside. I was told that 'this unit is always hot because we can't really turn off the heat in the floor and the windows are too small'. Hmmm...not helpful when we are walking around in tee shirts and sweating. It was also loud, since the way to get any breeze was to leave the windows open on to the sidewalk. And since it never really gets dark in Iceland in July, we couldn't close the blinds because we needed the air flow. Made for miserable sleeping.

I would have given a lower rating but I think that other units don't suffer from the same issues. We might stay there again, but never in lower unit that fronts the street.

This privately owned group of apartments is great value for the money. We had a fully stocked 3 room apartment, TV, dishwasher, stove, fridge, plates, cutlery, kettle, separate 3 piece bathroom with shower and a separate bedroom. 5 minute walk from everything down town Reykjavic. Parking is street parking but very safe. The staff is top notch, friendly and willing to help with whatever they can.

Room Tip: Ground floor is best
