A BEAUTIFUL DOWN TOWN APARTMENT

Reykjavik Apartment Rental Photos and Description

A 861.11ft² Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Good Garden Sleeps Up To 6

The lovely apartment is all rather newly fully renovated and includes all the equipment needed to make you feel right at home. The apartment has 2 bedrooms, one equipped with a queen size bed (140cm x 200cm) and the other with two single beds (90cm x 200cm). There is a sofa and a sleeping couch in the living/dining room.

Six people will be very comfortable in the apartment, but there is enough sleeping space for seven adults and one child as there is additionally a single roll-away bed for an adult and one travel bed for a child, both of quality.

In the kitchen there is among other kitchen tool necessities - a dishwasher, stove, microwave, fridge/freezer, and tableware for 8 persons, coffee machine and a sink.

In the bathroom there is a bath-tub with a shower, a washer and a dryer as well as soaps, WC-paper, and towels.

Check in is at 14:00 (2 pm)

and check out at 11:00 (11 am).

The apartment is baby safe and comes with a stroller, travel bed, high baby chair, some plastic dishes, glasses and bowls, and a toy-box.

On addition it has bed linen, some books, board games, a high speed internet access and TV that are included.

The apartment is on the 1st floor/ground floor; outside there is a nice garden with an outside bench and a table for you to enjoy the weather and a nice dinner.

Though the apartment is in the heart and center of down town Reykjavík the house is hidden in between two streets and therefore has no street noise or any disturbances from the vibrant night live resulting from the apartment being located in Reykjavik´s lively downtown area. Within 1-4 minutes walking distance you will find very good restaurants, cafés, museums, a cinema, galleries, a theater, a public library and an indoor/outdoor swimming pool.

Here you are in the heart of Reykjavik and on the next street you find Laugarvegur which is the main shopping street in down town Reykjavík that has a good but low cost grocery store. Within few minutes walk in the other direction from Laugarvegur you shortly come to Skólavörðustíg, a beautiful arty street full of culture and good food, and in a few minutes of strolling you arrive at Hallgrimskirkja; the tallest church in Iceland. The church is a great landmark and is visible from all over Reykjavik.

Being Reykjavík's main street, parking at Laugavegur (and the closest streets surrounding it) are not free on business hours, and it will cost about 1 USD (150 krona) per hour.

As the apartment is located in the very heart of Reykjavík, in 30-40 minutes of easy walk you can get to most places in the city.

The bus from the airport drops you off in BSI, the main bus and taxi station, a 10-15 minute walk from the apartment.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I stayed in Hrannar's place earlier this summer with my wife, our two year-old son, and my wife's parents. The apartment was fantastic - comfortable, clean, large, and perfectly located in Reykjavik. I really can't say enough about the location- within easy walking distance of almost everything in the city, during the day and night both. We had an amazing time.

Though the apartment is in the heart and center of down town Reykjavík, the house is hidden in between two streets and therefore has no street noise or any disturbances from the vibrant night live as the apartment is located in Reykjavik´s lively downtown area. Within 3 minutes walking distance you will find very good restaurants, cafés, museums, cinema, galleries, theater, library and an indoor swimming pool. Her you are in the heart of Reykjavik and on the next street you find Laugarvegur which is the main shopping street in down town Reykjavík and has a good but low cost grocery store. The name of the street this apartment is on is Grettisgata and if you walk a minute in the other direction from Laugarvegur you shortly come to Skólavörðustíg, a beautiful arty street full of culture and good food, and in a few minutes of strolling you arrive at Hallgrimskirkja; the biggest church in Iceland. The church is a great landmark and is visible from all over Reykjavik.

Different parking options are available in the area, from park houses to free street parking. Being Reykjavík's main street, parking at Laugavegur Street is not free on business hours, and it will cost about 1 USD (150 krona) per hour. Park houses will cost less than 50 cent (50-80 krona) per hour. As the apartment is located in the very heart of Reykjavík, in 30-40 minutes of easy walk you can get to most places in the city. The bus from the airport drops you off in BSI, the main bus and taxi station, a 10-15 minute walk from the apartment.

I love this home because my wife was raised here - and as we bought it in ruins and renovated it, myself only 21 years old at the time - with my wife (then girlfriend). This is our first apartment and It took us almost a year before we could move in and holds a great sentimental value to us.

GREAT LOCATION AND COMFORTABLE APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I along with two friends stayed here for two nights and couldn't have been happier. The location really is ideal to see all of Reykjavik. The apartment was very clean and organized with a great layout for privacy even when traveling with another couple. We were able to snag parking right on the street. I would recommend staying at this apartment for any length of time.

LOVELY STAY

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was terrific. It was conveniently located, within walking distance from the main street in Reykjavik, with easy to find street parking for our car rental. My two children, my husband, and I were all very comfortable. We cooked in the kitchen, used the laundry facilities, and enjoyed a very comfortable space. The owner was friendly and very responsive. All in all, we had a great stay!

QUIET, COMFORTABLE, YET RIGHT IN THE HEART OF REYKJAVIK

  • 5 of 5
We had a very enjoyable stay in Reykjavik with our three daughters here. The location is terrific, close to the Hallgrímskirkja and all the shops, and cafes of old downtown, not too far from the old harbor for our whale watching tour -- and yet it is also a very quiet location. We slept comfortably and enjoyed cooking and eating in the kitchen. We had rented a car; street parking is affordable using the parking kiosks during the hours 10 am to 6pm, and free overnight, so it worked out well, especially as a home base for day trips out of town like the Blue Lagoon. The owner was a real pleasure to work with. Highly recommended.

COZY CENTRAL CITY LOCATION WITH ALL THE FURNISHINGS YOU COULD WANT

  • 5 of 5
Great location with easy access to downtown sites and busses. The furnishings are all great quality and it is a very comfortable place to stay in Reykjavic. The owner was very accommodating to our groups' random itinerary (we didn't really have an arrival time because we were finishing a bike tour of the ring road). We were a group of 7 and loved having a nice, cozy place to hang out and it was really well stocked with towels, pots, pans, cutlery etc. It is easy to book tour pickups from nearby hotels/hostels and when you step out the front door, you are right in downtown Reykjavic. I would definitely recommend this to other visitors to Reykjavic.
