Golden Circle Apartments
Reviewed 10 August 2013

Very functional and confortable appartment. Very spacious; big open space for kitchen, dinning area and living room. Separated big room. Appartment number 102. Views to Laugarvaten lake, just 300m from the appartment. The kitchen was fully equiped, so we could very easily cook. Just near the appartments the is a thermal spa (Fontana) in the lakeshore. Too expensive for what it is though.
I strongly recommend these appartments. Ideal to visit Geysir and Gullfoss.

Room Tip: From second floor (appartments starting with 2xx) there is a much better view of the lake

Golden Circle apartments are very nice, new, clean and well decorated. They provide linen and towels. The location is fabulous, just few minutes walking from the lake and from the amazing Fontana Spa which should not be missed. From the apartment you can enjoy a very nice view of the lake and they are very good value for money (considering prices in Iceland). A supermarket is located very nearby.

My husband, our 1 y old son and myself stayed here for two nights. We booked through bookings.com with ease. I had noted other reviewers comment about difficulty with key at arrival, so I was prepared. It was easy and no issue at all. Apartment was nice and clean with good comfy beds. Basic amenities very helpful and friendly staff. There were cute sheep outside the window in the morning :-)

We stayed here for two days with our two boys of 5 and 9 years of age. We could easily have stayed longer.

Pleasant and tidy apartment with a nice kitchen if you like to cook a meal. Within 2 minutes by foot you have a very pleasant restaurant (Lundin) and a thermal bath (very nice and relaxing).

Very good appartment, comfortable, clean. Located close to the pool, Fontana spa, supermarket, all the attractions of Golden Circle and not far from the airport. Makes the perfect first or last stop during your travel.
Has a nice kitchen, helps to save money on the dining out.

Just one warning!
When you book, don't choose the non- refundable option. I did hit the wrong button and chose the wrong date. I callled right away but the management was not accomodation and we ended up paying for 2 nights and staying just one night.

We stayed on night in june, the price is very attractive for what you get.
We had a one bedroom apartment.
Very clean, very well appointed, though the bathroom is really basic.
You get a code to collect the keys from a box outside of your apartment. There are 3 buildings. The apartments numbers are the same on each building, so verify you're building number before trying to open the wrong boy at the wrong building like we did!

It's just a short walk to Fontana bath, for which you get a 10% discount by showing the key of your apartment.

We slept very well and appreciated the amenities of the apartment.

The apartment is at a 20-minutes drive to Geysir. We went to Geysir at night, when there was less crowd, so the apartment is a nice option to visit Geysir out of the crowd.
You're also next to Restaurant Lindin, which is worth a visit (wonderful food and service, try the rhubarb mojito, a must!)
