About Ketill Magnusson

Husband and father of 3. Live next door to apartment. Grew up in Reykjavik and have lived and studied in Copenhagen, Barcelona and Canada. I like outdoor activities and travelling and love to hear stories of people from around the world.

Ketill Magnusson purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Ketill Magnusson chose Reykjavik

The house was built in 1929 for small shops. We renovated it in 2005 as a warm and bright apartment and wanted to create a unique place for people to stay.

What makes this apartment unique

It is nice to stay in a small house in the old center of Reykjavik. You get all the privacy, the space you need, clean and bright, the feeling of being in your own home. Just 5 min walk either to the old harbor with good restaurants or to the center of the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After spending a long weekend in Reykjavik, we couldn't think of a better place to stay. … only a 5 minute walk to the downtown shops, restaurants and bars! … The apartment itself was very inviting and comfortable. I am a stickler for modern and clean places to stay, and Apartment V27 fit the bill. The sheets and towels were impeccably clean, and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was clean and fully stocked! I will definitely be coming back to Apartment V27 on my next visit to Iceland.

  • 5 of 5
Great and cute apartment, kitchen had all we need, bedroom is downstairs on pavement level but that didn't matter much, comfortable bed, small grocery 1min walk away. Ketill and Sigga really looked after us and helped us with good hints. Would always recommend this place!

Nice apartment for our family of 3

  • 5 of 5
This apartment met all our needs during our stay of 5 nights. It is a unique and cozy apartment and had pretty much everything we needed to be comfortable. My 6 yr old son and I have food allergies so we needed a place where we could cook our own food.
The lower basement level where you sleep is really cool; not much airflow down there but it is perfect for those 20+ hours of day light. The bathroom is also on the lower level with a nice shower with plenty of hot water and good water pressure. There were generous numbers of quality towels, the bed linens were clean and, more importantly for me, the bed(s) were very comfortable.
On the main level, the kitchen is basic but adequate and fully functional to be able to prepare meals. In the living room the sofa was more worn out than in the photo but the room is bright, sufficient size and nicely decorated with fascinating books about Iceland. If someone is planning to sleep on this mail level, there is nothing to block out the light which might be difficult during the extended light in the summer.
Overall, we had no issues with this apartment and really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was clean, the beds were comfortable, the location was awesome, easy parking and the owners were easy going (as most Icelanders are), friendly and helpful. We'd definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks! We are so glad you like our apartment. It is true that the bright nights in early summer (mid May to Mid July) are difficult for some people to get used to. Since the upper level of our apartment is bright and open, we provide our guests with soft sleeping masks. Some use it and some guests seem not to be bothered. Still others use the midnight sun to explore the city and the nature. It is amazingly still at night, and not as crowded.

Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for 5 days before touring on a 10 day around the country tour. It was perfect for me. Easy to find from the airport and right smack in downtown. It was walking distance to just about everything, restaurants, the waterfront, bars, shopping.

I was alone in my stay but it would have been large enough for a couple more people. The hospitality was great as well, Ketill helped me out by suggesting things to do and see. Marked a few spots on my map that was a definite must to go see.

I would absolutely stay here again. I plan on making a return to Iceland one day and this will be my first choice in accommodation.

Terrific place to stay in Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5
The owners are really friendly and amazing people. Very helpful. The apt is located in a very convenient spot for walking the city and taking tours as well. Reasonably priced, esp by comparison to any hotel. Nice to have a kitchen to cook own food & drink own beverages if you're not into paying top Icelandic krona for every meal. I recommend...it's clean, homey, roomy enough & near the harbor.

Terrific Apartment in Reykjavik !

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a fabulous week in Reykjavik staying in this centrally located apartment. We were a short walk from the docks or the city center. Many excellent restaurants as well. A convenient small grocery was a block away also. Our hosts could not have been more accomodating. Highly recommened !

Fantastic apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 8 night with my wife and 10 year old son. We absolutely loved the place and location. It's just away from the center of town so it's fairly quiet in a nice old neighborhood (Vesturbaer) so you feel away from the city but it's just a 3 minute walk down the street and you're in a little square with lots of shops and activity. The first 4 nights we didn't need a car and just stayed in the city and enjoyed the city life. The local pool is about a 10-15 minute walk and is well worth it. Seltjarnes peninsula is close for a beautiful sunset (did that the final night to say goodbye to Reykjavik). The second half of the trip we rented a car (easy free street parking near the apartment) and did day trips and ended up back "home" in time for my wife to cook amazing icelandic meals. There's a Bonus grocery 10 minute walk from here. Kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, freezer, refrigerator and stove (no oven). We really enjoyed the owners who were extremely friendly and helpful. We have travelled all over Europe and this was definitely one of the nicest trips and this apartment helped make it that way along with Ketill and his wife. You will not regret staying here. We will be back!!
