Overview

Reykjavik Apartment Rental Photos and Description

One bedroom and a big livingroom close to the centre

A one bedroom and a big living room, lovely roomy apartment located in a quiet area by Laugavegur, Reykjavik´s main shopping street, near the centre of Reykjavik.

Overlooking a beautiful garden and a 2 minute walk to the central bus station Hlemmur.

The property

The apartment is on the second floor, there is a beautiful bedroom with a queen size bed and a roomy living room with a leather sofa bed where two people can sleep and one single bed. Total sleeping places is for up to 5 persons. The kitchen is well equipped so you can make everything from a simple breakfast to a romantic dinner. There is a dishwasher as well so it shouldn't be any problem cleaning the plates afterwards.

The size of the apartment is 70 square meters or 750 square feet.

Guest access

There is a washing room in the building and access to a private very well taken care of 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. Free highspeed WiFi (internet connection) and a big flat screen tv.

Communication with guests

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, right next door to the apartment. The actual address is Asholt 42, 2nd floor, 105 Reykjavik. A taxi or rental car from Keflavik airport should take about 40 minutes.

We meet the guests up on arrival and show them the facilities, but after that they are on their own.

There is only 2 min. walk to a supermarket open 7-24.

There are a lot of nice restaurants in the neighborhood that you should check out. Don't miss out on walking down Laugavegur shopping street.

Lovely apartment with great location

  • 5 of 5

We have used Homeaway on a few occasions and this great apartment has by far been our favourite. It is a good size, very clean and has a very well equipped kitchen for cooking.

The location is ideal a 10 minute walk to the centre of town with many shops, bars and restaurants. The hotel next door is a drop off and pick up point for airport transfers and excursions which was very handy.

Gudmundur was very kind and friendly, meeting us very late at night as we were over 7 hours late due to delayed flight. He even left us fresh fruit, water and juice.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Reykjavik.

Fantastic. Centrally Located, Easy and Friendly

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I decided to do a quick trip to Iceland from the United States, and keep it as possibly budget-kind as possible. We found Gudmunder through VRBO, and liked the central location ad price of his condo.

Upon arriving to Iceland, we contacted Gudmunder and he met us promptly outside of a nearby hotel. He showed us into the underground parking garage, and later into the condo itself. His kind demeanor and obvious willingness to help us as lost tourists was greatly appreciate. He kept the lodgiging aspect simple and safe. He gav us all of the necessary information that we would need not only for the condo itself, but for the surrounding areas. The garage was a huge plus! But also the location, cleanliness, and space of the unit itself.

I would highly recommend this condo to many people to come, and in fact work for an airline where multiple people take short trips to other countries to get away. We highly plan on using this condo again, as well as promoting it to all of our jet-setting friends and family members.

Thank you again!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Cassandra Thank you for staying in our apartment, when you left everything was clean and tidy. I liked very to see in the guestbook that you and your friend had a good time, seeing a lot in, you liked to see Gullfoss and Geysir and then you looked at the night live in Reykjavik. You are welcome to stay in our apartment next time you are in Iceland. Regards Gudmundur

This apt was awesome! Very comfortable and convenient! We rented a car and it was located near the main roads and about a mile from down town with parking! Having a kitchen was super helpful to keep coast down! Loved it!

Wonderful Stay & Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 (2 adults , 4yr old and 2 yr old) who recently returned from our first trip to Iceland. We stayed for a long weekend and had a wonderful time. While described as a very child friendly country & city; traveling with small children we still had to be very sensitive to location, amenities and the accommodation size. The apartment was exactly as described with all we needed. Everyone we met was super nice and extremely gracious especially with the children.

The apartment is very centrally located with less than a 10 minute walk to the main shopping street, Laugavegur and other attractions. The apartment is actually on a road that branches near the Hlemmur bus station on to Langavegar and another street (can’t recall name). Since we did not rent a car having the Hlemmur bus station a 5 minute walk away was perfect for local trips i.e. zoo. It is also conveniently located across a small parking lot to a hotel which is was perfect when making airport transfers and tour pick up and drop off arrangements; since tour companies do not pickup or drop off at private residences.

Gudmundur and his son were very accommodating and gracious enough to answer all of our last minute questions about the area(location of grocery stores, attractions, restaurants etc.). Most importantly they accommodated us for our early morning arrival from the US. They even had fresh fruit and orange juice upon arrival.

We highly recommend staying here and would do so again.
