Overview

Reykjavik Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Self-catering downtown central Reykjavik apartment

Large 3 bedroom Reykjavik apartment in the heart of the city for family holidays or romantic get aways. Walking distance to most everything in Reykjavik. The apartment is 1.5 blocks to main shopping, cafe, restaurant, gallery street and 2.5 blocks from shoreline, but on a quiet street just steps to the action. Plenty of space for a family to spread out and eat in. Located so that you can walk out for a pizza or a romantic dinner near by. The apartment has 3 bedrooms that can sleep 6 people in beds and we can provide a floor mattress for additional travellers. There are 2 couches that children can easily sleep on too. We offer a home like environment which appeals to travellers who do not like cold hotel environments. This is our family home when we are in Reykjavik and offer it to our guests when we are away for most of the year. A playground around the corner for the kids. The kitchen is equipped for cooking full meals. There is a full dining and kitchen table for meals. We have a parking spot in front of the apartment. And just a few minutes out of the city you have all the great nature that Iceland has to offer.

Spectacular location - very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with this "Icelandic home away from home!" Located one block from the Main Street it is easy to feel immersed in the Reykjavik experience. Lodging was very clean and comfortable for our party of 6 adults, one toddler. Our host could not have been more responsive, welcoming and accommodating. Having a parking place is so convenient. Can't wait to go back!

Oasis in the thick of it

  • 4 of 5

This was a great apartment on a side street a block off the main street. The street was icy (January, who would have guessed) because it was a side street. This apartment is a home. It's not a hotel room. It was comfortable and convenient and all 6 of us liked it. We only ate breakfast there because there were so many good restaurants nearby. Rosenbergs jazz club is around the corner, great food, and LeBisto is down the street to name just 2. I would recommend this apartment to all my friends.

Great centrally located comfortable clean flat

  • 4 of 5

The description was accurate and the communications with the owner were excellent. The location of the flat in downtown Rekyjavik near Harpa was great. Given that it is so central the availability of an attached parking space was very useful. The flat itself was clean, pleasant and functional with plenty of space for 6 adults for a week. Central heating and hot water were in plentiful supply and the bedding was very good. The bathroom and kitchen show some signs of wear and tear and minor repairs and adjustments would be helpful. A few of the older pieces of furniture would also benefit from some attention, but overall the furniture, fittings and facilities were excellent.

We enjoyed walking round town and shopping straight from the flat and we had a great evening out at the Harpa Concert Hall. It was also easy to drive out of town from the flat and down the waterfront to a place to watch the Northern Lights! There were plenty of places to eat nearby but we mainly cooked in the flat. Thanks a lot for a great place to stay.
