About Ketill Magnusson

We are Ketill and Sigga, parents of 3. Live next door to apartment. Grew up in Reykjavik and we have lived and studied in Copenhagen, Barcelona, US and Canada. We like outdoor activities and travelling and love to hear stories of people from around the world.

Ketill Magnusson purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Ketill Magnusson chose Old West Side

The house was built in 1929 for small shops. We renovated it in 2005 as a warm and bright apartment and wanted to create a unique place for people to stay.

What makes this apartment unique

It is nice to stay in a small house in the old center of Reykjavik. You get all the privacy, the space you need, clean and bright, the feeling of being in your own home. Just 5 min walk either to the old harbor with good restaurants or to the center of the city.

Guestbook comments from the manager

After spending a long weekend in Reykjavik, we couldn't think of a better place to stay. … only a 5 minute walk to the downtown shops, restaurants and bars! … The apartment itself was very inviting and comfortable. I am a stickler for modern and clean places to stay, and Apartment V27 fit the bill. The sheets and towels were impeccably clean, and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was clean and fully stocked! I will definitely be coming back to Apartment V27 on my next visit to Iceland.

Beautiful and affordable downtown apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was amazing - clean, quiet, spacious (family of 4) and very reasonably priced. It was nicely located in a residential area just far enough away from the busiest tourist areas (quiet, free parking etc) but only a few minutes walk from everything. Our host was accommodating and quick to reply to all questions and requests. This is an excellent choice of accommodations for Reykjavik.

Miss this CUTE little apartment!!!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for a week in July 2017. Has all the amenities for a comfortable stay. So close to everything, we walked everywhere. Beds are very comfortable. We kept the windows open, so it was a little noisy, but with ear plugs and a fan going it blocked out most of the noise. So nice to have a washer and dryer available. A great little apartment to call home.

Truly a home away from home, in the heart of Reykjavik

  • 4 of 5

I chose this apartment for its appearance and location. It's within easy walking distance of most of Reykjavik's attractions, and three grocery stores. It's also just a short walk to tour pick-up points. The owners are very gracious, accommodating, helpful, and available, living right next door. The apartment comes equipped with everything a tourist needs, and more! We appreciated the cookware and sharp knives - which are often lacking in condos/apartments. This apartment is very light-filled, as there are big windows. They are frosted, so you get the light, but not the fishbowl effect. The windows face right onto the sidewalk, on a somewhat busy street, so there is traffic noise and people walking by. The bedroom and bath are downstairs, essentially at basement level, with a small window. So it's very cozy, comfortable, and quiet for sleeping. (Unless someone in the traveling party is watching the TV in the living room upstairs, then it's noisy, as there is no door to the bedroom.) The stairs are the only real drawback to this property - they are very steep. The ceiling is low in the sleeping/bath area, but my 6'4" husband didn't find that to be a real issue. They added a dehumidifier, which works marvelously to dry laundry in just a few hours. There is a combinatino washer/dryer, but we didn't need to use that. We had requested a microwave, as there is no oven. A microwave should be a standard appliance, not a requested item.

Loved this pristine home. Ketill and Sigga provided all that was needed for a very homey stay. The home is close to both the water and a few minutes walk to Reykjavik center. Will recommend this anyone heading to Iceland.
