      The owners were very pleasant and accommodating; they are happy to share their knowledge of their city. The apartment contained all the kitchen necessities for a self-catering stay, and there was a washing machine available for use on site. The location is not far from the main shopping street yet far enough away to be quiet. Reykjavik is small enough that it was a good base for visiting the city. A pleasant stay.

      The apartent itself is cosy and stylish and its is also excellent in downtown, not to mention the owner couple are both nice and friendly. If I have the opportunity to visit Reykjavik again, I would definitely choose this apartment!!!

      Very convenient location and clean place to stay. Walked to everything we wanted to see in Reykjavik. Owners and staff are very nice and very helpful. Grettisborg is just what we needed for our stay. Would definitely recommend to others.

      Super cute, clean and modern in a perfect location! Great value! Hot water did not have the sulfur smell (all other places we stayed in Iceland had smelly hot water)!

      We were a group of 3 so we selected a studio apartment which claims it can sleep 4... In our opinion, it was really only a two person sleeping room...three was tight and I'd say 4 is impossible.

    • Family with children

      The location was very good as we could be at the central area of the city in two minutes.

      To our surprise the rooms had not been cleaned at all through the 9 days we had been stayed there!!!!!

      The apartment is very well situated. Around the corner is the main street but the apartment was quiet. The owners live next door so the property is very well maintained. The beds were comfortable and everything worked as it should. You have to pay to park but it's affordable - 80 kr per hour from 10 to 6 mon to Friday. We stayed on the top floor and the balcony was really a nice feature. The first two floors do not have balconies. The owners Rosa and Snaebjorn were available when needed and helpful. Ketla was also great at answering questions and helpful. I would stay here again.

      Very good follow-up and info prior to our arrival.

      We had 4 people in the apartment and we had plenty of space. Liked the idea of having a kitchen and the bathroom was large. We also liked the location to the main downtown core and waterfront. Also, there was laundry facilities which we didn't use but liked the idea that we could. The owner/operator was lovely as well. When we go back to Reykjavik someday, we will book with Grettisborg.

      The apartments are beautifully designed and the location could not be better. Central but quiet. The owners live next door so we could always ask for advise. There is no extra charge for the cleaning at the end. I don´t understand why people complain about not having had cleaning during their stay in a self catering apartment, or not having someone to bring them an adaptor. Self catering means that you cater for yourself, but saying that, we felt more comfortable and got better service here than any hotel we stayed in. Great breakfast in the bakery around the corner. Parking was easy and the transfer service picked us up free of charge from the doorstep. In all, brilliant, by far our best stay in Iceland. Thank you Rosa and Snibjorn.

      Good clean apartment close to the main shopping street. City centre is small enough to walk all over. No specific parking but paid parking on street is fine as long as you don't get snowed in - but this was a problem all over the city!

    • Group of friends

      Perfect location. Fully equipped appartment, nice and cozy. Helpful staff. We recommend it.

    • Family with children

      No phone, no lobby ( I need an electric adapter but there is nobody to ask that)... Room was not so spacious. Considering the price, I will not stay again.

    • Family with children

      We liked the place, but actually we didn´t stay in the house were the appartements are. We were placed in another house on the other side of the street, but that was just fine, becourse the appartement was much bigger than the one we had booked and payed for :) This appartement is not mentioned on Grettisborg´s homepage, so we didn´t even know it exists. The appartement was cleen and well-kept and staff wery friendly. (That only time I actually met her...) Location is good in a quiet street almost in the middle of town.

    • Group of friends

      Really really nice! I even hope to own that apartment. Everything is convenient.

    • Family with children
      9.2

      We really enjoyed the design and the atmosphere. Having our own apartment and therefore being able to discover Reykjavik in our own speed was very relaxing with 2 young children. The apartment felt like home away from home. The shower with so many shower heads was great!

      Since we had a soutterain apartment it wasn´t too light (which probably was better than having midnight sun).
