Staff are awesome. Though apartment is remotely managed by hotel staff, our stay was very pleasant and never had any issues. Instructions to checking in and out was easy. Location is close to convenient stores, restaurant and gas stations. Has plenty of parking space. Will use them again in the future.
very simple Apartment with small kitchen and small bathroom, not much space around bed and Little table
The room was very comfortable with all the amenities we needed for a great stay. Great value for the money. Though we never saw the staff, the communications was great and we had no issues. We would stay there again.
The stay was very nice. A very clean and comfortable room.
This is a no frills apt. However, it is a great value for the budget traveler. We encountered some issues with our apt early on and the owner, Halldór, resolved them in a timely fashion. The apt is about a 20 minutes walk to downtown Reykjavik. Not a problem for us New Yorkers who are used to walking. Overall a good experience.
We booked rooms at Bolholt but we didn't actually stay there. Apparantly the guy who owns and runs Bolholt also owns and runs another set of apartments called Einholt Guesthouse, and he's not very organized. I e-mailed him a few days before the trip to request an early check in and he never wrote back. When we arrived at Bolholt early in the morning, there was no one at the front desk to meet us. We tried calling him but couldn't get through. We sat waiting there for about an hour, and finally started knocking on doors. One friendly guest knew the owner, called him and told him we were there waiting. After about twenty minutes the owner showed up and said that due to a scheduling mix up, he'd over-booked Bolholt and there were no rooms for us, but not to worry, we could stay in his other hostel, Einholt. He drove us in his battered truck to Einholt, and that's where we stayed. Once we got there we were happy with it. The rooms are nice and it is in a good location, easily accessible to everything in town. But the whole experience was tainted by his utter disorganization. If that one friendly guest had not had his number, we might have had to find rooms elsewhere, wasting the money we'd paid for the reservation. Also, each morning of our trip we would encounter new guests in the Einholt lobby, complaining that no one was there to meet them when they arrived and they couldn't get into their rooms until the owner showed up. He was very irregular and some people had to wait for hours until he came, just sitting in the lobby with all their luggage, wasting their precious vacation time. All in all I thought he was pretty shady and I wouldn't stay there again, despite the nice rooms and cheap cost. And I think Orbitz should think twice about continuing to do business with him, because it makes you guys look bad as well.
