2/10 Poor

Terrible! Avoid!
Very upsetting and frustrating stay at this hotel. I booked this trip for my husband birthday. Unfortunately we did not sleep properly. I booked this accommodation for a 4 night stay. On the 1st night, we were being woken up by the people upstairs about 1am. They stayed up till 4am and we thought that that is over. But then we hear them snored. We then have to wake up at 7am for our day trip. We hoped that it was just one night but then it happened again. On the 2nd night, the people came back earlier and again woke us up at 1am. After an hour, it went quiet. Then their friend came and knock on the door. After several knocks, he walked outside the building and had a pee on the pavement. Then he made a phone call and we can hear the phone upstairs vibrating. At this time, I phone that I wish to cancel the rest of the 2 nights but was told that they will contact the owner. I then booked another hotel straight away because we couldn't stand another 2 nights not sleep. Fast forward 1 week, the owner reject our cancellation and we did not get our money back. Neither did compensate us. I think the accommodation is not fit for letting people stay because the floors were so thin that we can hear the snoring and mobile vibrating. Absolutely crazy! I think need to take responsibility that this apartment is not suitable on their website.

Be very careful of the bedding arrangement.
The bedding configuration was deceptive and misleading. The description on the booking says 2 twin beds whereas in fact it's only one twin bed. For four adults, this is totally inadequate. Management where pathetic and wouldn't take responsibility of their incompetence when they reluctantly phoned back. I would never recommend this group to anyone. Seek clarification on the actual bedding configuration.

4/10 Fair

The benefit of this property is it proximity to transportation, food and some walkable historic sites. We were in the top floor apt with carpets. Carpet smelled. Bathroom needed some TLC especially toilet. Refrigerator smelled. I had to clean it; maybe it was closed and unplugged before we got there. I emailed property manager on our day #1 about some concerns, I am yet to receive a repl and my 7 days stay has long ended.. USA phone could not make calls in Iceland.

Our Stay at this place...
The apartment was centrally located in the heart of Reykjavík but was on a quite street so noise was not a factor. Ideal location made for an easy walk to restaurants, boutique shops and museums. Facility was clean and bed was comfortable. The manager of the place was efficient and prompt in her communication whenever we reached out to her if not too friendly.

6/10 Good

This property is close to good restaurants and shops. Parking on the street was actually easy to find and check in and check out were super easy too. Bed in the bedroom is comfortable. The sofa had some stains. The big problem was the smell in the kitchen and bathroom. Very strong garlic and funky smell that was overwhelming to the point that the person sleeping on the sofa bed had a hard time sleeping. If this apartment was cleaned up, it would be nice.
