Had a great stay here. The bed is comfortable and the shower is great. Close to Reykjavik, although we didn't end up using public transport so can't speak to that. Very private and clean. Perfect spot for exploring the beautiful Icelandic scenery.

Hrafnkells room is perfect for two people who need somwhere to sleep after days out exploring. The bed is really comfortable and the room is a generous size. The only thing we could fault was on a few nights we hear children up till very late making noise but it wasnt too loud to stop us from falling asleep. Would definitely recommend this place. Thank you Hrafnkell.

My husband and I stayed in Hrafnkell's flat for two nights - the 18th-19th after we arrived in Reykjavik, and the 24th-25th the night before we left- and it was the perfect base for our time in the city! Only a 15 minute drive to downtown, the location was convenient for us and the area was very quiet. Though we didn't meet Hrafnkell, he communicated very well and was kind enough to leave the key under the mat for us each evening so we could arrive at our convenience. The flat looked exactly as it does in photos- it was very well-kept, clean and cosy. The bed is extremely comfortable and the curtains are amazing (definitely an important feature if you visit during the Midnight Sun!) so we slept very well both nights. We would be happy to stay at Hrafnkell's again, and would definitely recommend it if you are in Reykjavik! Thank you for hosting us, Hrafnkell :).

The room was very neat and clean. It is private with an own entrance door. The kitchen corner is basic and cleaning of limited dishes has to be done in the bath room sink. Okay for simple breakfast and coffee or tea preparation. The surrounding is in a quiet, nice suburb of the capital. contact with the host has only by telephone, as he was abroad during the week of our stay. This was not a problem for us.

Hrafnkell's place was lovely. It was exactly as described, easy to find, and very flexible given that we had arrived quite late into Reykjavík. The place was really warm and cosy! We stayed again for another night the day before we departed Iceland, and it's definitely been a great place for us to stay. Thanks Hrafnkell!

The studio was exactly as advertised, clean, warm, and perfect for the night we stayed there. Excellent for the price, and decently well equipped for a brief night. I would highly recommend for a short stop in Reykjavik!
