What makes this Apartment unique
Very simple 'the best location in Reykjavík' Welcome to Þingholtin, Reykjavík FULLY LICENSED This neighbourhood in central Reykjavík is a historic area. In the strictest sense, its name collectively refers to only a handful of streets around Þingholtsstræti, but nowadays, citizens refer to the whole neighbourhood south of Bankastræti as Þingholtin. Colourful houses are a prominent feature, many of which were built around the turn of the 20th century and in the following decades. Many of Reykjavík’s most affluent citizens made the area their home and there’s history around every corner. Þingholtin draws its name from the farm Þingholt (literally, Parliament Hill), built in the late 18th century when Reykjavík was still just an ecclectic collection of semi-urban farmhouses. As the neighbourhood is centrally located and close to many official government bodies, it has become a diplomatic centre and many embassies are based here. When staying in this interesting area, all services are close by and the vibrant city life is but a few footsteps away. No matter whether you’re in Iceland on business, here for a weekend mini-break or intend to explore more of the country, the Þingholt area is an ideal location. The neighbourhood is immediately south of Iceland’s main shopping street, where you’ll find a wide range of boutiques, shops, art galleries restaurants, cafés and bars. The Harpa Concert and Conference Hall is within walking distance, where architecture, music and spectacular views go hand in hand. Buses and coaches are within easy reach, so you can enjoy exploring both the city and the countryside from your base in Þingholtin.

Perfect Iceland apartment!
Great stay at this property. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom and shower were awesome! Location was within walking distance of center of city and we had the nearby church served as a great point of reference. We discovered a different part of the city by walking to nearby park. My only complaint would be that the while the second bedroom is a distinctly separate room, it does not have a full-sized bed but rather a couch that turns in to a bed. If we had brought another couple or our 2 children, someone would have been a little disappointed in their sleeping arrangements. I would say this apartment is more appropriate for 2 people, not 4.
Fantastic Apartment and Great Location!
My group and I stayed here from 06/24/2019 to 06/29/2019. The apartment was clean and ready for our arrival. Jónas was a wonderful and accommodating host and was easy to get in contact with. My favorite part of this apartment was the shower! Stylish and relaxing after a long day of tours and hiking. The location is just a few blocks from the Hallgrimskirkja church which is also the location for bus stop 8 where we met our tour buses. It was also close to many souvenir shops and restaurants. I highly recommend this apartment if you are traveling with a small group (like I was) or if you’re a small family. Both beds are large enough to accommodate 2 people each. The WiFi came in real handy, we didn’t use the tv’s as we were busy seeing this beautiful country and city.
Wonderful property! Excellent location within walking distance for everything. The only thing I would say negative was that the pictures I saw online with the layout of two bedrooms is not what we got. We got the one bedroom apartment on the other side of the one I thought I had booked. It was fine, just not what was shown. Directions to operating the washer/dryer would have been helpful (it was all in Icelandic) as well as directions to the TV's that we never figured out how to program. Beyond that, it was a nice stay.
Jonas was excellent as the property mgr and answered all of my questions quickly and efficiently.
The apartment was situated very close to a beautiful park and short walk to downtown.
Very pleased with the amenities and area. Would definitely recommend for 3 people. The owner was very helpful.
Perfect Apt Perfect Location
The apartment was perfect for my wife and I. Had everything we needed and was a short walk to the center of the city. Quiet at night/great location/fully stocked kitchen. We'll for sure stay again when we're back in Reykjavic!
