“Excellent Accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

We chose this apartment based on previous reviews and we were not disappointed. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating, ensuring that we'd got our bearings and recommending good places to eat. The apartment was spacious, light, clean and well equipped. It was well placed in a quiet area but close to shops, bars and restaurants. We would certainly stay here again and highly recommend this accommodation. The flybus and excursion buses pick up/drop off at Eric the Red, just up the road. Perfect really.

We saw reviews and decided to book. We were not disappointed. The apartment was excellent, clean, spacious, and well equipped. The owner was fantastic and the location is perfect. You are 5 mins walk from the main shopping street. We will recommend it to everyone.

We had a great stay at the Hansen Apartments. It was easy to get into even without someone letting us in, as we were given a code. The property is lovely and well maintained, and we loved our one bedroom apartment. There is free wifi, which is a bonus! The owner is super nice and we couldn't recommend this place highly enough!!! It is very close to the bus station and, if you don't have much luggage, you could walk. Taxis are very expensive in Iceland - in fact, everything is! We were able to walk into the town centre, and the main street, where you'll find the stores, is just up the road, literally a few minutes walk. If we went to Iceland again, we would definitely stay here. We booked our trip to see the northern lights at the bus station and we were picked up at the hotel (and dropped off). The people are very friendly.

Stayed a few nights in the Hansen Apartments and liked how spacious and well equipped it was. The owner was very helpful and nice to chat to, too. Also, we liked that it was an easy short walk to the main streets but quiet at nights.

The only negative about this lovely apartment was that we arrived late at night and left early the next morning, which didn't give us much time to enjoy it!

Right at the top of a quiet building in Eiriksgata, very easy to reach (even in a hire car in a strange city, driving on the wrong side of the road!) from Keflavik, and yet very easy walking distance from the big cathedral and downtown Reykjavik, this lovely light, airy apartment is a real find. Very well equipped kitchen allowed us to whip up a quick late meal, and a comfortable bed gave us a good night's sleep. The bathroom was a little odd, with toilet and handbasin in one room, and a huge spa bath, with shower over it, elsewhere, which meant that one was trekking around the apartment, but not a problem if you're travelling just with your partner although the apartment would sleep a third person on a fold-out in the living room.

We arrived to find the door unlocked and a welcoming note; as we had absolutely no orientation (and no map!) we took the liberty of calling the phone number of the owner, who gave us directions for finding a food store so we could buy the makings of dinner.

In summary, a great place, with a perfect location for anything in Reykjavik.

200m from the cathedral, you can explore the whole town by foot from the apartment and are still located in a very calm area. We learnt from local friends that this is the "in" area for living in Reykiavik.
The rooms are big and have big windows, there is a modern kitchen and we felt at home right away. A pity we could only stay a night before starting our round trip trough iceland.
We will come back if we can ! :-)

We stayed two adults and three kids for two nights. I booked it thtough booking.com. Easy check-in, very friendly owners, fantastic location next to the Cathedral. Apartment is wonderful, spacious and clean. Only downside is that the price is a bit steep.
