Sem Apartments has an excellent location in the centre of Reykjavik. We are in walking distance of the main shopping area, the Hallgrimskirkja church and the harbour.
The apartments are in a corrugated iron building – typical of the beautiful older-style buildings in Reykjavik’s centre.
We obtain the key from a key box and walk a few stairs down to Apartment 1.
On entering, it is a warm and cosy haven from the cold outside. The apartment is clean, fresh and well decorated. It is a small apartment with two small bedrooms, very small bathroom and open plan living/dining/kitchen area. It is well designed and cheerful.
The kitchen is well equipped and has an oven, a ceramic two-burner cooktop, bar fridge, toaster, kettle, coffee plunger (best coffee on the whole trip). There are lots of condiments supplied – coffee, tea, salt, pepper, oil, foil, and cling wrap.
There is a round (extendable) table and 4 chairs, a 2-seater sofa, small coffee table and TV mounted on the wall in the living/dining area.
The apartment is well heated with panel heaters throughout.
The main bedroom has a comfortable queen bed plus very small side tables and lamps, a chest of drawers and small chair.
The second bedroom has a double bed, a small bedside table with reading lamp, and a wardrobe with mirror doors.
The bathroom is very compact with very good shower, small basin and toilet. A small built in cupboard contains our towels. Liquid soap plus sachets of shampoo/conditioner are supplied.
We can highly recommend a stay at Sem Apartments – clean, comfortable and well located.
