Modern newly renovated little house, with all the attractions of the city in a walking distance, but still very private and shelterd from the world. Special advantage is a grand piano and access to a garden.
The house is very comfortable and bright with windows and gardendoor facing a beautiful little garden.
It offers a good place to rest with an excellent adjustable double bed, fully equipped kitchen, nice sitting room with a dining area and even a grand piano, bathroom with a shower,washing machine and dryer.
Highly recommended. Very central, very comfortable, beautiful decor, helpful hosts. We hope to return on our next trip to Iceland.
This is a beautiful little property (a detached former stable block) in the owners’ garden. It is extremely well kitted out and is perfect for a couple. The owners have done a wonderful job restoring it. I must mention our hosts at this point - they are a lovely couple, happy to help and advise and very friendly, but not intrusive. They are happy to let you have your privacy, but will stop for a friendly chat when your paths cross or if you have a question. The garden face of the building is pretty much all glass and your hosts are happy for you to sit outside, but at no time did we feel we lacked privacy.
The bed is the most comfortable we have ever slept in - just what we needed after a day exploring the Icelandic countryside, and the location perfect. Really close to everything but very peaceful. The kitchen area is well laid out and has everything you need, although there are so many good local restaurants with reasonable prices that we only used it for snacks and hot drinks (by the way we are both vegetarians and had no problem finding something nice to eat).
The accommodation is very well equipped, even to the provision of a baby grand piano! (and yes, your hosts are very happy for you to play it). The building is also well heated using the traditional Icelandic method of under floor geo-thermal hot water. You will be able to keep the windows open for fresh air without getting chilly.
To summarise then this is a lovely property in an excellent location made all the more enjoyable by the efforts of our hosts. We were delighted we chose to stay here and can whole heartedly recommend it.
The property is lovely with very nice decor. It has everything you need as if you were at home. Furthermore, it is in a perfect location for everything in downtown Reykjavik.
During my stay, it was very clean and well maintained. The owners were great and very responsive when I contacted them about staying a few extra days. I would stay here again and I highly recommend this property for a visit to Reykjavik.
This guesthouse is a real treasure. Located in downtown Reykjavik, it is nevertheless hidden enough for a calm stay and a full privacy feeling. Once an old stable, the house has been completely renovated and decorated in a very personal atmosphere- every corner shows the owner's love to arts of any kind. You will find everything that is needed in a fully equipped flat, in perfect condition and clean. Needless to confirm once more the friendlyness of the owners- they made us feel more than welcome and took the greatest care of us, without disturbing our privacy.
We stayed at the house for the second time now and for sure we will come back. So hopefully the good recommendations will leave us some days there...;-)
From the airport there is a flight bus going to the bus terminal. From there it is a five minutes drive by taxi to the house, The flight bus also offers a lift to hotles in center. You can ask for a lift to Hotel Fron at Laugavegur. Our house is on Grettisgata, the street abowe Laugarvegur, it is only a 2 min walk from Fron to our front door. If you rent a car at the airport, follow the signs to Reykjavik city center. Grettisgata is easy to find.
There are excellent resturants all around or in a walking distance from the house, with good food at moderate prices. Small shops and local bars are the asset of the area, as well as galleries, museums, cinemas. Live music can easly be found, and the National theater, and Harpa, the music hall are in a walking distance. Hallgrímskirkja and other sights of town as well. Out door smimming pools are numerous in the city as well as exceptional 18-hole courses.
