Reykjavik Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Spacious, 1 living room, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2 to 4 persons

This lovely modern apartment is both cosy and clean. Great location. Situated in the heart of Reykjavík with easy access to all the attractions of the city centre. Supermarkets, shops bars and restaurants just few steps away. Few minutes walking and you have all the main restaurants, a wonderful warm outdoor swimming pool with hot tubs and steam bath, the national theatre, cinemas, museums and tourist information. Apartment with fully equipped kitchen and a nice bathroom and is fully fitted to accommodate 4 people.

This should come to no surprise, but Iceland is number one on the Human Development Index and has been vote the most liveable country in the world.

From our powerful nature to the streets of Reykjavík, Iceland is literally bursting with energy like never before. That’s why now isn’t a time to stay away, this is a time to get closer.

Clean and safe: The capital city of Reykjavik, with its 190,000 inhabitants, is probably one of the cleanest and safest cities in the world. Its plentiful resources of geothermal energy ensure clean air and unpolluted water giving both citizens and visitors a unique sense of liveliness and contentment. Reykjavik has become recognized for its pure energy, thriving culture, sparkling night-life and creative atmosphere.

One of the benefits of visiting a small city is that you never have to walk very far to get to where you’re going. With its long easy-going main street (Laugavegur), Reykjavik offers diversity to tourists at a friendly pace with quaint boutiques, book stores, galleries, delis, cafes and restaurants dotting the historic downtown area.

This should come to no surprise, but Iceland is number one on the Human Development Index and has been vote the most liveable country in the world.

Land of contrasts: The island of contrasts, where heaven and earth meet, and where the Sagas of the Vikings were written, a land of glaciers, erupting volcanoes and the magnificent midnight sun. In Iceland you will find everything you need to make your vacation, conference or incentive successful and memorable. Hotels, conference facilities, support services and modern comforts are as good as anywhere in the rest of Western Europe. There is a multitude of bars and fine restaurants in Reykjavík.

So clean, so pure, so save and so much space.

Namaste! Berta

THE PERFECT PLACE TO STAY IN REYKJAVIK

  • 5 of 5
I had the pleasure of staying in both of these units, and I recommend them with great enthusiasm.
They are perfectly situated on the ground floor of a building fronting on the main street, just East of the busiest section, on a quieter stretch of the road. You can walk to all the best nightlife and shopping, but still get a peaceful night's sleep, free from the sometimes raucous clamor of late night at the bars, restaurants and shops which crowd the street. A taxi stand and bus station are just one-half block away, providing easy access for transportation to the further reaches of Reykjavik.
The units are sparkling clean, furnished comfortably with modern taste and a designer's flair, but also including some personal touches which add considerably to the sense of the comfort of home. They are eminently suitable for entertaining both friends and clients.
And Berta is the perfect hostess. As someone to do business with, she is responsive, reliable, and efficient. But she really shines with her thoughtful attention to hospitality. She gives clear direction regarding every logistical issue you are likely to face (e.g., getting to and from the airport.) But she also provides what amounts to an insider's guide to this fascinating city.
Overall, staying in these units was an experience nothing short of excellent.

Owner's Response: Thank You Jerome B. for your kind words. It's always great to know that people felt at home away from home. It's very important to me that you felt comfortable and happy on your holiday. It's such deeper experience to bring back from our holidays, to live in personal and friendly/local enviroment than just staying in a stale looking hotel unit who looks the same all over the world. It was my pleasure, thank you for being the perfect guest and welcome again.

My best wishes

CENTRAL LOCATION - COZY ACCOMMODATION

  • 5 of 5
If you want to be centrally located, within walking distance of all the Reykjavik sights and public transport, if you want to live in a cozy home away from home... then this is the place for you.

. listing description accurate
. clean and well maintained
. good customer service
. recommend it to friends and family
. choice of cafe's, restaurants, shops, museums/galleries, design... the sea, the towncenter, the big church, a park... it's all there within reach

Just a lovely place, suited my needs for a much-too-short visit to Reykjavik without a car perfectly. Thank you!

REYKJAVIK / ICELAND AUGUST 2009

  • 4 of 5
We (2 adults / age 30) stayed at the apartement for 10 days. The location is great for discovering Reykjavik and going on day excursions.

The property is clean and well-maintained. Nothing missing except if you might be looking for SatTV.

Bus stop, restaurants, grocery store and the city center are close, so you can easily manage to get around.

At the weekend it can get a little noisy at night - no big deal - except if you are travelling with small children.

We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the apartement to friends.

Hoping to come again soon!

EXCELLENT FOR FAMILY TRAVEL

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this appartment last August with my family, and I must say we had the best holidays ever. Iceland is so amazing, and with this convenient appartment everything is handy and it is very easy moving around Reykiavik. My children loved it! I really want to come back.
The appartement is very convenient, you really feel at home. The furniture is very standard but more than enough, spacious and clean.
I highly recommend it and would definetly go back.

Car: not necessary

This cosy,clean and well maintained apartment is located on the main road in Reykjavik 'Laugavegur' but on the quieter end. Away from the noise from the night-life, still situated in the heart of Reykjavík with easy access to all the attractions of the city centre. Two big supermarkets are just around the corner. Few minutes walking and you have all the main restaurants, a wonderful warm outdoor swimming pools with hot tubs and steam baths, the national theatre, cinemas, museums and tourist information. Easy, free parking if you want to rent a car.

Stands Out

What makes Iceland stand out as a venue is its unique natural beauty and absence of pollution. Dramatic volcano and glacier scenery-and conversely, action packed incentives are there waiting to be enjoyed by visitors. Reykjavík, the capital city is next door to nature. Iceland is only about a 3-hour flight from most European cities and 5 hours from the North American.

Other Activities: Family Park in Laugardalur is just 10 min. walk

Golf: Iceland not entirely white, it’s greener than you think.

People always say those Vikings were pulling a fast one when they called us Iceland and not Greenland but now we have even greater reason than ever to be called Green Iceland! Over 70% of our total energy consumption is from hydro- and geothermal sources and Reykjavik was the site for the world’s first commercial hydrogen refuelling station, opened in 2003.

Continually looking for the next big thing, we are extending Iceland’s green credentials from land to water, with Reykjavik whale-watching company - ‘Elding – adventure at sea’ unveiling the first commercial vessel to trial the use of hydrogen in April. Shame it isn’t helium, we could have had some macho sailors with high- pitched voices.

Ski: Hiking n Iceland

The Hengill/Nesjavellir area in South Iceland is an outdoor sports paradise, with a variety of 160 km of marked and challenging hiking and biking trails in a region of high-temperature geothermal areas, hot springs, volcanic craters, lava fields, rivers and lakes. Besides hiking and mountain biking, you can also go fishing on Lake Þingvallavatn (Iceland's largest lake), visit Þingvellir National Park, tour the Hengill geothermal power plant and go horseback riding
