Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom 1 Bathroom Ground Floor Apartment Ideal for 4 Persons

Ground floor apartment with a private entrance.

This non smoking facility is a comfortable and well located apartment close to the city centre. Basically everything considered centrally located is within walking distance. Although being so close to the centre our street is very quiet. You will be hard pressed finding a more suitable place to stay in Reykjavik. You can enjoy the city without a car but at some point renting a car and taking daytrips in the countryside must be recommended. The apartment is equipped with one double bed and two single beds, TV and Internet as well as a nice kitchen. Shower no tub. Reykjavik's famous landmark church, Hallgrimskirkja,is a 2 min.walk away. Also within a 3 min.walk is one of the city's renowned swimming pools with its fantastic hot tubs. Our street is a one-way street with no traffic other than the residents. Free parking in the street for your car. A ten minute walk to the Reykjavik Bus Central.

Why Siggi chose Reykjavik

We chose this ground floor apartment because of the central location. The apartment is within walking distance from anything considered centrally located.

Although centrally located it is in a quiet street away from any down town activity.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 2 nights at the end of July. The place was clean, well stocked, very close to amenities and had the beautiful church Hallgrimskirkja right nearby. Old downtown Reykjavik is a very short walk. Would highly recommend it for a short or a long stay.

Thank you.

Convenient & cute

  • 5 of 5

This aborable apartment is located right next to the iconic Hallgrimskirkja church in Reykjavik & is a very short walk from Laugavegur, the main shopping street that is also filled with wonderful restaurants. The owner is very friendly & is beyond helpful. She responds very promptly to emails. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Reykjavik.

Cute house

  • 4 of 5

Siggi's house was great for our four night stay in Reykjavik. It was comfortable and centrally located in what seemed like a safe neighborhood. We didn't really explore the city but rather used this apartment as our base to visit the Golden Circle and the Snaefellsness peninsula. Having a washer and dryer was a bonus. We had the Tide pods from the US which worked well. The kitchen was big enough to prepare meals which saved us a ton of money because food in Iceland was expensive, which we expected from our research. If you plan to cook your meals, bring as much food as you can. The apartment has two bedrooms, but the space is probably too small if you have more than 3 people in my opinion, although it sleeps 4. The shower is really small. Also, water in the shower can quickly go from hot to scalding hot so be very careful. I recommend that the owners place some kind of a temperature regulator to be safe although I found the same issue in our other self catering rental in the south of the island. Also, it would be nice if basic kitchen items are provided to get visitors started like cooking oil and paper towels. There was no assigned parking but we didn't have a hard time finding a space even late at night. Siggi was very responsive and replied quickly to my questions. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return to Iceland next year to explore the northwest quadrant of the island.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Siggi's apartment is no way misleading, the photos are extremely accurate. Location is perfect, the landmark Hallgrímskirkja church is at the top of the street. Driving from the airport we had no issues finding the apartment at 1am. It's located in a quiet neighborhood only few minutes walk to downtown. Apartment is very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Also, we found a plethora of information about Iceland which helped make our day trips more enjoyable!

Contact with Siggi was straightforward and responded to all my emails immediately. Thanks Siggi, our hope is to visit again soon, Joyce
