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.
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.
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.
Guests have neighboring apartments above and on one side of their apartment. Common courtesy is the key here: No loud noises, banging, etc. We want everyone to have a good time, which can easily done without disturbing your neighbors.
NO SMOKING IS ALLOWED ANYWHERE IN THE APARTMENT, OR IMMEDIATELY OUTSIDE THE APARTMENT. IF YOU LEAVE THE APARTMENT SMELLING LIKE SMOKE, OR ANY OTHER STRONG ODOR, WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CHARGE YOU AN ADDITIONAL CLEANING FEE.
