Beautiful loft apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the loft for four nights and it was perfect. Everything in the apartment was to a very high quality. The beds were very comfortable and the bedding and towels were of a good quality. We loved the decor which featured some fantastic artwork and gorgeous furniture and furnishings. Everything was in a perfect condition and the apartment was very clean. There was parking outside and we really liked the area. It was quieter than central Reykjavik but we enjoyed the peace and it was a 2 minute drive into the city. There are supermarkets located a very short walk away which includes a 24 hour Netto store. Hjordis, the owner was friendly and provided excellent communications. There were some lovely touches like a city map highlighted with our location and some essentials in the fridge for our arrival. We had a fantastic stay and highly recommend this beautiful apartment! Hopefully we will get the opportunity to return!

Loved this place! Recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

Pristine, well decorated and comfortable. Really made our stay in Reykjavik more amazing. Everything you need including a Nespresso machine, tons of sightseeing info, cozy bedding. Can't recommend this place enough! Location is on harbour and in a slightly industrial area- but there is a 24 hour supermarket a couple mins walk away and the city center is about 10 mins walk. We had a car, so it was perfect for parking and we took cabs at night as the weather was so cold. You can also see the ocean from the living room window. Hjördis, our host, was also extremely friendly, responsive and looked after us during our stay. By far one of the best places we've ever stayed at on Homeaway!

Beautiful loft!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay for our first visit to Iceland! A beautifully decorated and impeccably clean loft with plenty of space for four adults. An eclectic selection of CDs for our use was a nice touch as was the complementary wine upon our arrival! Thanks Hjordis! We had a great time visiting the sights of Reykevik and were thrilled to have the chance to see Yoko Ono's lighting of the peace tower light on Videy Island. A drive around the golden circle along with the south western tip of the island was very enjpyable as well. Too much to see and not enough time ! Highly recommend two restaurants in Old harbour neighbourhood : Cookoos Nest for Weekend brunch but be there early (11:00 opening) to be sure you get a seat. For a leisurely evening meal, tapas at Tapashouse on the harbour was a delight.

Wonderful loft apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful loft lived up to the photos and more. Spotlessly clean and conveniently located just a short walk from town, three grocery stores and a Sixt car rental agency, as well as the Saga Museum and the Marina Hotel. It's far enough from town to get away from the late night noise but close enough to enjoy almost all of Reykjavik on foot. Getting in and out of town by car was very easy and the free parking right by the loft's entrance was a big plus with the rainy, windy weather we experienced.

Neighborhood felt very safe and secure. Do suggest having a phone, to call for taxis, making reservations and added safety on long road trips. We had an amazing trip despite the weather and look forward to returning someday.

Highly recommend this Artist's Loft!
