Views over the lake, a minute from City Hall Bus Stop for all your tour pickups. Everything you need inside. Only thing missing was some drawers for your clothes. (There are hangers) Also watch out as it's has three double bedrooms, but you pay surcharge for more than 4 people.
The apartment was literally on the doorstep of the bus stop we needed for all our excursions, a short walk from the city centre and all it's bars and restaurants, and yet still felt like a quiet and relaxing bolt hole to return home to.
The view over the lake from the living room window is absolutely stunning and was in all it's snow covered glory when we arrived. Don't be fooled by the photos, the living room is much bigger than it appears and the window is long and large, filling the room with light by day and offering a beautiful view of the twinkling city by night.
The apartment is well maintained, very clean and, despite the snow, lovely and warm. All the bedrooms are large with very comfortable beds and cosy bed linen, giving our family of four plenty of space and comfort. The bathroom is also very spacious and the shower is amazing (couldn't get my teenage son out of it)!
Just one little note for future holiday makers, the kitchen is quite basic in terms of cooking equipment (no cheese grater, colander etc) so if you think there is any piece of kit you can't do without, it would be a good idea to contact Onni and ask if it's provided. She was very quick to reply to any of my initial questions and extremely helpful.
We loved our stay at Central Pond Side Apartment and would recommend it without hesitation. If we are ever in Reykjavik again we will definitely be planning to come back.
The location of the apartment is great overlooking the pond and very close to the centre of Reykjavík. The apartment was very roomy and clean. Parking was not a problem outside the apartment. We would definitely use it again.
The host is very kind and responsive. The apartment was in great condition and is in an excellent location. Sleeps 6 very comfortably. We would definitely stay again!
Easiest review I've had to do in a while. My wife and I arrived to a well-furnished, clean apartment in the heart of Reykjavik. The neighborhood was quiet, but everything that we wanted to do was well within a short walking distance. Relatively cheap parking was ample and close by. I would rent again on a return trip.
Great apartment that provided all we needed. Located next to the pond, on a quiet road and a short easy walk into downtown Reykjavik. Accommodation was beautifully warm and our family of five had all the space we wanted. Whilst not one of the usual pick up points for trip companies, we were collect and dropped of at the front doors. Highly recommended. Onni was very helpful and communicated well before we arrived. Hope to be back again (soon).
