Overview

About the property

Family friendy, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, with shower, sleeps 8

Very bright and airy three bedroom apartment in a high rise building smack in the center of Reykjavik. Even though we are close to everything you could want to explore the apartment is in a quiet neighbourhood and gives you time to relax after an exciting day in the city.

The apartment is located on the first floor in a high rise building. There is an elevator so it is suitable for the elderly, handicapped and people with small children. There is a playground for kids and we have a glassed in balcony that gives you the chance to sit down with your coffee or glass of wine and plan the day´s activities.

There is free wi-fi and cable tv with a tv in every room and a large screen tv in the living room. We have a large dining table with seating for ten (there are extra chairs in one of the closets) so you can host a big dinner party. There is cutlery, glasses and plates for many people (12-18) and of course the kitchen is equipped with everything you could need to cook your gourmet meals from the fabulous produce that Iceland is famous for.

This apartment is available from 240 to 290 USD per night (minimum three nights stay).

needed to stay longer

  • 5 of 5

the condo was,clean, neat, and convenient to shops, restaurants, attractions, and nightlife in the city. The owners were very pleasant, and accommodating to our group. I would very much like to come back to Reykjavik, and Iceland in general, and I would stay at the Grey Towers and recommend it to all.

Perfect Home away from Home in Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was amazing. The pictures and descriptions on line are totally accurate. It was a clean, safe, quiet location. We were six friends who stayed for five days. We enjoyed the set up of the rooms with 2 twin beds in each and the beds were very comfortable. Plenty of closet space. The kitchen was stocked with basics like salt & pepper, coffee, tea, sugar and spices. The appliances were pretty tricky to work but there is a draw full of manuals for reference. The living room and sitting areas were used often. Everything was so comfortable. The brochures by the door were very helpful. The location was ideal. For the tours that didn't pick us up there, it was a very short walk to the Hostel or the Residence Hotel. It was centrally located for short walks to the water or the shopping street. Plenty of restaurants are nearby. Grocery store was within walking distance also. Sigrun was amazing before and during our trip. She responded promptly to any emails sent. She was very helpful with directions and suggestions and answered all my questions. I loved the fact that we had the apartment keys before we even got there; especially since our flight landed at 4:30a.m. We were there Feb 27-Mar 3. We were very fortunate to have had a perfect week of sunny skies and got to see the Northern Lights. We did snowmobiling, an ice cave, horseback riding and went to the Blue Lagoon where we ate at the Lava (delicious) and saw the Lights there too. The Golden Circle Gourmet Food Tour was the best.

We felt immediately at home here and would definitely stay again. I would strongly recommend staying here and I have already recommended this to several people who are planning a future trip to Iceland. It's THAT nice!

Spacious apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us shared this spacious and well-appointed apartment! It was quiet and comfortable with all the amenities (hairdryers, washer and dryer, etc). The location is ideal - just a block off the waterfront, which allows for gorgeous views, long walks along the waterfront walkway, and watching the Northern Lights. The location is also central to Reykjavik with many restaurants, museums, and sights within easy walking distance. We would absolutely stay there again!

Great place to stay in Reykjavik.

  • 5 of 5

The property is very nice. The bedrooms are a little small but they all have 2 twin beds with a TV and they all have good storage systems so there is plenty of room for your clothes. The bathrooms are both nice but the larger one is really nice. The living room and sun room areas were better than I thought they would be and the kitchen was roomy and had everything we needed to cook several meals. That is probably something you will want to do because food is very expensive in Iceland. We did rent a car and we were always able to park for free in front of the building although it was close a few nights. I would strongly suggest renting a car if you have 4-5 people as this saved us a lot of money over buying 5 Golden Circle tours alone. It was actually about the same price as it would have been just for the 5 of us to take a bus to the Blue Lagoon and then to our apartment. So everything else was basically free (plus gas). If I return to Iceland, I will definitely look at staying here again.

Superb location, spacious and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed with this condo. Excellent location; couple blocks to grocery, te and kaffi shops, restaurants, one block to nice walkway on the water and 10 minute walk to Haarpa Music Museum and the old Reykjavik town center.

Nice, quiet location yet steps from all one needs. Nice bed configuration (VERY comfortable beds!!) with two beds per bedroom and very large living space with large table to sit and chat around or find a quiet space to read. Well stocked kitchen (my only "wish" was for sharper knives) and lots of windows to take in the park below or the ocean view. WIFI worked seamlessly and loved the main power switch allowing us to shut all off with one touch as we were going out the door.

Communication with Sigrun prior to arrival was exceptional. She kept me well informed and provided all necessary documents prior to arrival; including the keys. Nice touch in adding restaurant and sight seeing recommendations - we tried a few and they lived up to their review!

I HIGHLY recommend this unit if you're travelling to Reykjavik. We're planning another trip during the summer months and this is where we'll be staying!!

The apartment is located in the exclusive neighourhood 'Skugginn'. Very quiet, yet close to everything you would need or want to do while in Reykjavik.

Check out the restaurant 'Perlan' which rotates in one hour with spectacular view of the city; the new music and convention hall 'Harpa'; the harbour in Reykjavik with all it´s cafés, resturants and shops. Be sure to go to the top of the church 'Hallgrimskirkja' and look over the city.

Go and feed the ducks at the pond in the city center or simply walk around and look at all the people and the bustling life in the capital of Iceland.
