I stayed in this apartment for a week during the Iceland Airwaves festival in 2012, and the apartment was perfect for our group. We were 5 Canadian guys in our late 20s, and we had a busy schedule of events while we were there, and wanted to be within walking distance. This apartment was large enough to accomodate everyone comfortably, and was only a 10-15 minute walk from the centre of town. I would recommend this apartment/owner/RedApple to my friends.
The apartment is very cosy with lots of beautiful decorative items. The beds are luxury - better than most of the hotels have. In the kitchen there are all possible kitchen utensils what is missing that hasn't been invented yet. The distance to center of the city is more than half a kilometer - according to Google map the distance from apartment to Hlemmur bus station is one km.
Extremely satisfied. High standard in the apartment. Nice hosts. We had a very nice vacation and the apartment was very good regarding our needs.
Great apartment for a group of five. Grocery store just down the street. Can walk to main street in town. On-site parking. Owners were flexible about check in and check out.
Nice and clean well equipped and decorated apartment. We totally recommend it .
A very nice apartment. Clean and comfortable with a lot of charm and wide view on the top Balcony. We where 3 single persons witch did feel all good together and could find enough privacy in our own rooms when needed . Its a bit a walk to the center so you need to be in good condition ore just take the cab.
Stayed in many apartments and this was one of the most enjoyable. the owner waited patiently while we were held up with our car rental. The space was large roomy with plenty amenities. wifi worked well We had parking too There is a grocery store and restaurants nearby. All this info was made available for us by the owner. All appliances worked well including dish and clothes washer
Booked 3 nights for myself and 5 friends to celebrate my birthday. The apartment was spacious, well equipped and comfortable. The numerous balconies and BBQ grill came in handy as it was summer. The apartment was situated within a 10 minute (and very scenic) walk to the centre of town. The owner Jon was also very helpful. We had a suberb holiday and apartment was perfect for our needs.
We were a group of 5 spending 3 nights in Reykjavik. The apartment is very clean and comfortable and you can see that the owners take genuine interest in keeping it that away. It really felt like a home away from home. The owners are very helpful and ready to answer any question we had, even calling up a taxi company to find out fares. All the kitchen equipment and utensils were neatly washed and ready to use. Location is great, just a 15-20 min walk to the city centre and major sights. If need a pick-up location for organised tours, Hotel Bjork is 2 mins away. There is a supermarket close by for any daily needs. Would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone travelling to Reykjavik.
The apartment was excellent for our family trip, great location, just a stroll from Reykjavik centre. Superb views from the upper balcony. Everything needed for our stay was included, very comfortable, fully (& I mean fully) equipped kitchen, great bathroom, comfy beds, tv,dvd,WiFi, parking. Easy check-in & out, friendly & helpful owner. Perfect for us & would recommend the apartment & Red Apple Apartments to everybody!
As this was our first time using Red Apple, you are always a little apprehensive about what you are going to get. However in this case everything was great. The owners contacted us by email prior to our stay. They organised key pick up and met us at the apartment. The apartment is in a perfect location. Having a supermarket next down is very handy and the fact that you can walk to the centre of town is good. We took several tours while we were there and the tour group had no problem about picking us up which is very handy and reassuring. The apartment was well presented and warm and cosy. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom floor is to die for - loved the warmth on your feet. The pictures on the site did not show the stairs ( I dont think) , May be an issue if travelling with older people. No bathroom upstairs either. Apart from that and we did not believe in any way that these issues took away from the overall suitability of the apartment. We will be returning to Iceland and will hope that we can get the same apartment next time.
We stayed at this apartment as a group of 6 friends on vacation. It was a perfect location for us. We walked around Reykjavik and had very easy access to the highways by car. The walk down to the old harbour front area took about 25-30 minutes, but it was filled with shops and restaurants most of the way. One parking spot was included and we could park a second car on the street out front for free over night. The bedrooms were large and the beds were comfortable. The two balcony areas offered nice outdoors space. The grocery store was just steps away.
Very much liked our stay in Reykjavik. Apartment was about a 15 minute walk to the main drag with bars, restaurants and shops. Neighborhood is quiet. There was a grocery store a block away and a trendy coffee shop about two blocks away. Apartment has a fully equipped kitchen and a clothes washer. Minor quibble is bedrooms are upstairs and bathroom is downstairs.
My daughter, grandson, and I had a comfortable stay in this nice flat. We each had our own bedroom which was wonderful. the living area and kitchen were comfortable and well-equipped. It was handy to have the laundry in the flat. We had no problems with check-in or out. The only minor issue was that the building was undergoing some construction work so there were workmen around most days. A warning re: grocery store just down the street as it has very odd hours.
A really nice appartement close to the big shoppingstreet in Reykjavik city center. The sleepingrooms were on the second floor which was excellent. Really nice kitchen, bathroom and livingroom. I highly recommend this appartement.
