Borgarnes Old Towne Apartments are in the heart of Borgarnes' historical center. The Settlement Center? Across the street. Restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, swimming pool/fitness center and parks? 1-10 minutes away by foot. Plenty of free parking.

Here in Iceland, it is common to use two smaller beds, which are easily separated or pushed together to maximize versatility. That is what this apartment has as well. There is also a flat screen TV, and the Internet is fast enough to stream.

The space

You are renting an open and spacious (about 100 sq. meters or 1,075 sq. feet) 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom apartment on the ground floor, which is not shared with anyone else during your stay. The apartment is clean and safe; however, everything may not be 100% perfect in appearance. An example would be some scratches and dings on the floor, and on some of the furniture. What you do get is a clean, safe space in a great location, and exceptional value. There are real, made up beds, not sleeper sofas, bunk beds or foldout beds. Beds can be pushed together to make doubles, or pulled apart for singles. Cribs cannot be provided, as the apartment is not meant for children under 8 years of age. Please do not arrive with more people than are booked, including children and/or infants. This is illegal in Iceland.

Guest access

Guests have access to all areas of the apartment.

Interaction with guests

Your hosts live on the same street, and only about 200 meters away, in their own apartment. We will meet with you when you check in and check out, (if you wish, or you can use the key box and we will stay out of your hair) and are available promptly should the need arise. We can generally accommodate any arrival time; please let us know what your needs are. Guests may email or telephone us as needed; we can arrive quickly by foot or car if the need is urgent.

Other things to note

No meals are included with your stay; however, there are a few places to eat within walking distance. Our wonderful local bakery (a filming location for the movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty) is about 1.5 km away, and two grocery stores are closer than that.

This was the nicest place we stayed at in Iceland. The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable. Jay was a great host and highly knowledgeable. The town is quaint and cute with lots within walking distance. We would prioritize coming back here.

We enjoyed our stay at Jays home in Borganes. It was nicely appointed and modern-very comfortable. Jay was very responsive to emails and gave very detailed information about checkin and checkout. He even came to our rescue when we could not start our car in front of the apartment! We would definitely stay with Jay if we find ourselves in Borganes in the future.
