Beautiful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four nights and loved this place. It is beautifully designed and furnished. Very light and spacious. Great views from both floors. It is full of art and books and music. Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom is huge and a wonderful place to lie in the bath after running the marathon. The perfect place to stay in Reykavik. It is very central but also quiet. Lisbet the owner was very welcoming. Don't stay anywhere else!

Incredible experience

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is insane; so nice, spacious, gorgeous, and located in the perfect spot. Book it without any hesitation. If you are considering another location, choose this one instead. Lisbet is an amazing host, kind, responsive and discreet. The location is great for exploring the city. No need for a car...in fact, we regretted having one! The bathroom is so pretty and you see the snow tipped mountains while you shower. Tons of towels and sheets, which was nice for the long stay! Loved the outdoor patio. We enjoyed wine and cheese on a gorgeous day. Great sound system and the piano was fun to have for our friend that played. Beds were comfortable and very clean. The darkening shades were a nice bonus since it's always daylight. I brought an eye mask and the combo made for a great nights sleep. Very pleased and grateful for this fabulous apartment! It's GORGEOUS!!!

It doesn't get better than this!

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived back home from a wonderful week staying in LIsbet's amazing apartment. It is light and airy, decorated beautifully, with everything you could need, including an incredible collection of books. The location is perfect - right on one of the most central and interesting streets in Reykjavik, yet not noisy. The views from the upstairs windows on a clear day were spectacular. Lisbet was a wonderful host. On the first day our flight arrived early and she let us check way ahead of time. She was always very friendly and available when we needed her, but otherwise inconspicuous. Highly recommended! Brett

Fabulous Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Looking at the photos of the apartment we were expecting a stylish apartment. The photos do not fully reflect how fabulous the apartment is. We spent our time in the apartment appreciating Lisbet's artistic, eclectic decorating style. The apartment is adequately equipped which enabled us to start each day with a hearty breakfast ready for our adventures in Reykjavik. The apartment is located minutes from the main downtown street but is fairly quiet even on busy weekend nights full of young revelers. Both Lisbet & her daughter (Disa ?) were friendly hosts. Our family of four all highly recommend the apartment & would definitely stay here again.

Loved the apt!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in Lisbet's apartment for a week in early June. It's two floors,the second and third, and she lives on the first. Living room, formal dining room, and small kitchen. Amazing light throughout. Beautiful big bath upstairs with an extra 1/2 bath down, which was great to have for three people. We were three friends traveling together, so the two bedrooms and spiral staircase worked fine. I agree that it may not be ideal for small children or anyone w probe doing stairs. It was perfect for us--I loved having the bedrooms on a seperate floor so someone could head up to sleep early. Also, given the cost of meals out, we saved a significant amount of money having coffee and breakfast in each morning. The coffee maker is a small stovetop percolator, which makes excellent coffee, but in small quantities, pack a french press if you like larger quantities of coffee. (We also brought our own coffee; though Iceland has endless good coffee, it's expensive, like all other foodstuffs) I can't say enough about the location. It is absolutely perfect--you are directly in the middle of everything. We had a rental car, as well, and never had a problem finding parking. It was, in the end, a great find. Hope your experience with the apartment and Iceland is a great as ours was.
