I grew up in this house like my whole family of 6 siblings and my mother was also born in this house. In 1994 me and my wife bought the penthouse apartment in the house that my grandfather built most of but he was a carpenter and a house builder and we lived there for about 14 years.

When we moved to another house we didn't want to sell the apartment because we love it so much. Therefore we turned it into a holiday apartment which has turned out very nicely. We love meeting new people from all over the world and to be able to take part in their holiday in Iceland this way. We are very grateful for the opportunity to be able to still keep this beautiful apartment in the family and help travelers to stay in a cozy, bright and beautiful apartment which is perfectly located in the center during their stay in Reykjavik.

Sveinn purchased this apartment in 1994

Lindo Penthouse is quite large or about 80 sqm. and bright since it has lots of windows and has an exceptionally high ceiling. It fits families perfectly, especially with kids because they simply love the mezzanine.

The location is simply perfect. It takes you 2 minutes to walk to the main shopping street Laugavegur and from there it takes you about 7-10 minutes to walk to the center square Ingolfstorg which is located at the end of the main street. Even though the apartment is so close to everything it is still in a quiet residential area, two short blocks from the main street. Therefore you should be able to get a good nights sleep even on weekends which is rare in Reykjavik, even in the most expensive hotels.

The benefits of this apartment is how big it is since it easily fits families and groups of 6 and we can add a baby cot if you have a 7th. baby family member. And of course the location which is simply perfect, close to everything, the main street, the ocean and the center square but still in a quiet residential area.

GREAT PROPERTY AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The location of the property was perfect - near restaurants, sites and transit. The place was clean and roomy - lovely view of the water. The host Sveinn was prompt in answering our questions and we highly recommend his jeep tours.

GREAT LOCATION AND VALUE

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four spent a week in Reykjavik visiting friends. This apartment worked quite well for us, and the price is more than reasonable. Our teen and pre-teen daughters liked their loft space, and the darkening shades dimmed the apartment enough that they had no problem sleeping. The small amount of street noise wasn't an issue, either. No sound from the nearby bars and clubs - only random noise from pedestrians on the street outside the building.

We arrived during what sounded like a child's birthday party in the main house. We were hesitant to knock and interrupt, but we texted Sveinn, the owner. He met us outside and graciously helped us (well, me) cart our excessive luggage up the stairs. A brief tour of the apartment later and we were on our way. We didn't have any need to contact Sveinn during our stay.

The location is only a couple of short blocks from the main shopping street, allowing us to easily cover the entire downtown area on foot. I was a little concerned about the availability of street parking, but we had no problem at all finding free spots within a block (mostly less) of the door. A couple of grocery stores are within several blocks - perhaps a 10-minute walk.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again ourselves or recommend this place to our friends, as long as they didn't require the privacy of a second bedroom.

LINDO APPARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
First trip to Iceland and we could not have chosen better self catering accommodation in Reykjavik. Went for self catering in case we needed to spend time indoors due to bad weather - as it worked out we had no rain in 6 days. The location was excellent with all downtown bars, restaurants and other activities on your doorstep (including the 2011 Culture Night - fantastic). The appartment was clean, warm, bright and spacious with all required facilities. Comfortable beds sleep 4 easily and 6 at a pinch. Bathroom fine but there is also a super strong shower downstairs if required. Last, but cetainly not least, the appartment was excellent value for money and the owner was very personable and helpful. Very highly recommended.

AM UNFORGETTABLE 30TH BIRTHDAY :)

  • 5 of 5
The location of this apartment is perfect. Just a few minutes walk into town. There was 5 adults on our trip and the apartment was the perfect size. It was very clean and have everything you need in there.

Sveinn (the owner) is not just an amazing owner of the apartment he was the perfect tour guide too. He was so knowledgeable and very welcoming. Recommended us places to go and visit and places to eat, he was very honest with everything. I would highly recommend the private 4x4 super jeep tour he also run, that was the best birthday I've had for a long time and the homemade lunch was just amazing.

I would highly recommend this apartment to all my friends and family who is thinking of going to Iceland and I will definitely go back and stay at Sveinn's apartment again.

Owner's Response: Hi Cheuk and thank you very, very much for your kind words. I'm so glad you enjoy your stay in LINDO PENTHOUSE and of course our tour to Thorsmork on your birthday was so much fun. As always it's all about the people and you were such a great and fun group to be around that me and Anton (the other driver/guide) could easily forget that we were working : ) Here are some pictures and a video from the tour: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=129849320421289&set=a.127613477311540.24893.127590380647183&type=1&theater

I'm truly looking forward to meeting you next time around.

Give my best to the others,
Cheers,

EXCELLENT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
The Lindo Penthouse is located close to the central parts of Reykjavik. It take about 3 minutes to walk to the main street. It is easy to get to all the museums, shops and restaurant. It was easy to find a available parking spot for our car. The apartment was clean and have all the things you need. Don´t let the outside of the house fool you.The pictures of the apartment gives you an accurate description of the apartment. We where satisfied with our stay at the Lindo penthouse. Svienn was helpful and easy going. I would recommend this to a friend or colleague.

PERFECT HEADQUARTERS!

  • 5 of 5
We took a family/business trip for 10 days to Iceland and chose to stay at an appartment, since it was cheaper and more comfortable than a hotel (we were 5 adults and a 5 month old baby). Lindo penthouse looked great in the pictures and it really was beautiful in real life! Cozy, big, comfortable, sunny (when there was sun!) and quiet, even if it is right downtown Reykjavik. Perfect for relaxing after a day of working, hiking or driving around. And so close to everything that we could decide on the go if we wanted to go out for dinner or stay "at home". Plus, Sveinn was absolutely great, helpful and nice. We recommend Lindo Penthouse without a doubt (except to anyone with mobility problems, since the stairs to the penthouse are VERY steep)!

Car: not necessary

Yet in a quiet residential area, LINDO PENTHOUSE is located in the city center. It takes you only 2 minutes to walk to the middle of the main shopping street Laugavegur and 5-7 minutes to walk to the center square Ingolfstorg. You have grocery stores (24/7), bakeries, restaurants, clubs, shops, bars, museums, The National Theatre, The Opera and the new conference and concert hall Harpa at your doorstep. It's also very close to the ocean where it's very popular to visit the art piece called Solfarid (e. The Sun Voyager) and simply to walk by the ocean and watch the sunset.
