Reykjavik Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
The 3-room apartment is the Reykjavik home of an artist family that is based in Reykjavik and Berlin. It has been designed by the owner in a personal unique way. The apartment is ideally situated for tourists close to everything. It is THE center of Reykjavik. The heart.
The apartment is clean and tidy up to hotel standards with linen, towels and little extras provided.
The mattresses on the beds are new and care for your health. The kitchen was custom made by the same carpenter that build the kitchen for Bjork. The bathroom is modern standards. Personal music and book library, family furniture and eccentric items make the apartment cozy and warm and ideal for feeling like a local.
The house is a typical 1930s construction with 3 apartments, one on each floor plus a basement and a back garden. In the basement there is a washing room with washing machine. Young families live in the other apartments. The apartment is on the 3rd floor (counting the ground floor as the 1st floor) and has 2 bedrooms and a living room.
It is on Grettisgata close to the corner of Baronsstigur (google). The parallel street is Laugavegur. The main street of Reykjavik for shopping and walking around, enjoying street life. Still Grettisgata is local. If you walk up the road next door on the left there is a beautiful indoor swimming pool extensively photographed by artist Roni Horn. It is fully equipped with sauna, fitness equipment and outside chill area and hot tubs where you can gaze at the Nordic lights (in winter). Across the pool there is the local school with basketball court freely available to the public during the summer holiday months (May till August). Walking down Baronsstigur you first cross the Laugavegur, main shopping street before bumping into a 24 hours store and ending within few minutes at the seafront hiking route with its breathtaking mountain range across the bay. Another good place to spot the Nordic Lights. Other noteworthy amenities include Te og Kaffi bookshop and coffee house on the corner of Baronsstigur and Laugavegur; Bonus, the Icelandic discount food store, few minutes walk down Laugavegur; and Hlemmur, the main city bus terminal, few minutes walk up Laugavegur with easy connections to all the other places in the city.
