Perfect Downtown Location

  • 4 of 5

We visited Iceland July 2-5, 2016. The location was perfect; easy to find, parking provided. We walked almost every where. The flat was roomy and clean, with fruit and eggs waiting for us. Beds comfortable, great view over the street. There was a lot of activity - the Iceland National Soccer Team played the final game on Sunday and then there was a rally for them on Monday. Very fun to be a part of it - the open bus with the team went right by the apartment!

I would recommend this sweet flat to anyone wanting to be a part of downtown.

Great location and customer service plus some elbow room and thoughtful touches

  • 5 of 5

Upon arriving (at 2:30 AM no less) was met by gracious hostess to give us information about the apartment. Was nice to have two bedrooms to spread out a bit. Apartment was comfortable and black out curtains provided. Location is wonderful with anything you need close at hand...restaurants, convenience grocery, coffee shops, bakeries. Hostess kindly stocked some necessities and some fruit for our arrival. Pick-up for most tours and airport shuttle just a few doors up. Would recommend restaurants Loki (just across from the church) and Fish (just down the street a block or two) for some good, local fare. I would recommend this apartment to friends and family and hope to book again as I hope to spend a longer time in Iceland next time.

Great location, comfortable accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We were two adult couples spending a week in Iceland for the first time. Gauja's directions to the flat were excellent, making it easy to find even after a long overnight flight. We settled right in to this well-appointed, clean and very comfortable space. We easily walked everywhere we wanted to go, including to rent a car when we explored beyond city limits--which we did, twice. Quick groceries are across the street; larger grocery store a few blocks away but an easy walk. Cafe Loki is around the corner and we highly recommend it for well-prepared Icelandic fare. We would return to both Iceland and Felicia's Flat in a heartbeat! Takk, Gauja!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Felicia’s Flat is perfectly situated for exploring Reykjavik. The staples that Gauja left in the refrigerator were very much appreciated, and the flat itself was very comfortable. We spent our first full day doing “The Golden Circle,” and the second day exploring south and east, making it as far as Vik, and both days were made all the better knowing we would be returning to a comfortable home away from home. A perfect place for a wonderful stay in a beautiful country.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful week here and it really is as close as pictured to the 6th tallest building in Reykjavik, the Hallgrimskirkja Church. The house was built in 1906 and was once the Church Architect's home. So you are staying in a historic building in the center of town. We found it quiet, clean with everything we needed. You can pick up

sour dough bread at the local bakery and enjoy breakfast before stepping out the door to shops, museums and restaurants. For tours you can walk 1/2 block to the Leif Erikson Hotel for pick-up. Exceeded my expectations!

Great hospitality in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights. Gaujia, the owner, was really friendly and helpful. The flat is spacious and very clean and has everything you need. It's centrally located and has some great restaurants and bars nearby. We went and rode ponies at her brothers farm - fantastic! :) We will definitely return and have already recommended the flat to some friends who are visiting next July.
