Overview

Reykjavik Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Cosy Apartment in downtown area, Parking Garage and Secluded Garden

The apartment is located in a quiet downtown area right at the end of Reykjavik's main shopping street, Laugavegur and the main city bus station, Hlemmur.

The apartment was updated in April '15. The update includes a new 48" Samsung Smart TV with extra speakers, cabinet, iphone dock station, expresso/coffee maker, new and bigger kitchen table and kitchen chairs, new carpet and much more.

Most of Reykjavik's best known restaurants, bars, cafés and designer shops are within 3-20 minute walking distance. Also in a walking distance there are the main church, an indoor/outdoor swimming pools, theaters, cinemas, and galleries. Reykjavik's shopping mall; Kringlan, is also within walking distance. Only 2 min. walk to supermarket open 7-24 and only 5 min. to the seafront. Hotel Klettur is right next door, for day trip pickup.

Also note that Reykjavik's main hospital is within walking distance.

There is a stunning view from the apartment, since it's on the seventh and top floor of the building. It has a kitchen with everything you need to make a simple breakfast or a romantic dinner. A bedroom with a double bed and large wardrobe. Living room with TV, DVD player and stereo, a very comfortable double sleeper/sofabed that sleeps two. I can put in a mattress for an extra child to sleep on. Bathroom with a shower and balcony with a BBQ. There is a wash room in the building and access to a private, very well taken care of, closed to the public, sheltered garden, for building residents and guest only. Access to private parking garage comes with the apartment. There are also plenty of parking spaces behind the building.

I live only 10 minutes away, so if something comes up I will be there in no time. There is also a janitor in the building to take care of things and security cameras connected to my TV, in case of someone rings the door phone. You see who it is on your TV.

The drive to Reykjavik from Keflavik airport should take around 45 minutes. There is a Flybus that takes you to town once you arrive. You can get a Hotel drop off that will take you to Hotel Klettur, wright next door to the apartment. The actual address is Asholt 2, 105 Reykjavik, apartment 702. A taxi from the airport should take about 40 minutes.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or requests about staying at my place.

About Bjorn

I'm a basketball coach and referee, but I also work for Iceland's Lottery and Sports Betting Company and for a Golf Club. I live in Kopavogur, that is about 10 minutes from the apartment. I will be happy to help you find your holiday sites in Iceland and and point out to you the must see places.

Bjorn purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Bjorn chose Reykjavik

I chose this place because of the downtown location and the fact that the property is very well taken care of by the janitor.

What makes this apartment unique

Coming to the apartment is almost like arriving at a 5 star hotel. The view from the apartment was the icing on the cake.

SUNRISE VIEWS

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is perfectly located on the City's main strip but far enough away from the noise. There is no need for a car as there are many restaurants minutes away including a grocery store. Balcony comes with a barbeque and a beautiful sunrise!

The apartment is very clean and has every necessity you need in your home away from home including fresh towels and toilet paper.

The wifi works excellent with no issues. There is a hotel next to the apartment where most of tours can pick you up. So location is great!

The owner is very accommodating and a just a call away if needed.

Great Location Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Arrived at this apartment on New Years Eve. Bjorn is an outstanding host from initial coordination and reservation all the way through our stay. Provided insights on where to watch the fireworks for New Years Eve (which we ended up watching from the balconey because of the outstanding view), recommended restaurants, groceries, etc. Directions from the airport were spot on. We rented a car which allowed us to travel outside Reykjavik and chase the norhtern lights. You do not need a car if you stay here. You Walk two blocks and you are on the main shopping district in downtown. Lots of shops, Lots of food. We were a family of four (two adults and two adult children). Bjorn brought up an extra matress so all slept comfortable. We already want to return and stay again!

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

The place was just as described. Very clean with fabulous views. Bjorn met us at hotel klettur, an easy flybus trip from the airport. We walked less than two blocks to the apartment. Very thankful we could check in early as we needed sleep from jet lag. Bjorn kindly showed us around the apartment. The apartment is just as pictured and very comfortable. Even though it is located on the main shopping street of Reykjavik it was very quiet at night and the bed very comfortable. There was a store nearby and very easy to walk into town. We saw a show at the Harpa, had dinner on the water. There was no local phone in the apartment, but there is wifi and I could use my cell phone. We were able to walk a couple blocks to a tourist office that booked an excursion for us as well as help schedule our flybus return for no additional cost. We also walked about a half mile to a local outdoor pool Laugardalslaug (there is also buses but we preferred to walk) the pool and hot tubs were very warm and very nice. Check out was easy. I would love to come back and would recommend this as a great place to stay.

We will come back!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay in Reykjavik. The apartment is very nice, clean and quiet and the photos reproduce exactly the rooms. Björn is a wonderful host, friendly and uncomplicated. When you stay in this apartment, you don't need a car, everything is very close...shops, restaurants, supermarkets and busstation. The view from the 7.floor is wonderful, especially at night. I really can recommend this place to everyone who wants to visit Iceland and Reykjavik and I'm sure we will come back someday.

Central to everything, full kitchen for the budget minded

  • 4 of 5

This bright, roomy condo is situated just steps away from the main street and tourist attractions of Reykjavik. Local bus line main terminal located in the same block. Two blocks for the sea wall and only 20 and 30 minute walk from old harbour and Opera house both worth seeing.

During our two week stay, we made full use of the kitchen which is fully stocked with all the essentials for easy cooking at home. The condo easily accommodates four adults. And, the secured building entrance and parking garage were a bonus.

Bjorn met us at near by hotel and took us to the apartment and showed us all the ins and outs. He was very accommodating and helpful in providing us with information regarding local eateries and 'must sees'.

All in all would recommend for anyone on a budget wanting to explore exciting Iceland.
