Why Sveinn Kjartansson chose Reykjavik

Cozy Studio is very spacious for a studio and is in a very quiet area even though it takes you only 3 min. to walk to the centre square. There is no street traffic outside the house and only one family lives in the building.

What makes this studio unique

In the middle of everything, restaurants, the old harbor where you get whale watching, museums, tourist info etc.

Comfort and convenience!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay! The apartment is clean, well appointed and right in the middle of historic Reykjavik, which means restaurants, bars, museums and shopping are within easy walking distance. We couldn't have asked for a better location. The owner couldn't be nicer or the parking easier, although care is needed to negotiate the tunnel entrance. Would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to stay and relax in Reykjavik. My only Iceland regret is that we didn't stay here longer.

Great Location and Clean Studio

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Cozy Studio for 3 nights in January on my first trip to Iceland. The studio is in a great location near the harbor and town square. As described it is in a very quiet off street location. I did most of my Reykjavic exploring on foot and the studio is perfectly situated for that as it is close to restaurants, pubs, and tourist information offices. Being able to cook and eat in was a plus. My trip was planned on very short notice and with Sveinn's helpful instructions I was able to get from the airport and get situated in the apartment with no problems. I would definitely stay here again.

A lovely location in Reyjkavik

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the perfect home base for a recent trip to Iceland with my 9 year old son. Exactly what we needed in the way of accommodations; a cozy spot with a private bath and kitchenette, and just a short walk from downtown and the old harbor -- short enough that we would pop back in for a few minutes a couple times a day to change clothes or drop off stuff before heading out again. The neighborhood is wonderful, and Sveinn is a perfect host. We hope to return!

Great rental & location

  • 4 of 5

Nice, clean, new pad that was super in being centrally located and having everything necessary (and more) for a stay in the capitol. Sveinn was very accommodating, and we felt very comfortable at this flat. Will definitely recommend to others headed to Iceland.

Clean quiet and right in the middle of town

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly what I was looking for. A home base in the middle of the city while I was there for work. I stayed for ~1 month and really enjoyed this peaceful apartment. Very clean and comfortable, right in the city, and Sveinn is friendly and welcoming. I will be staying here again on return trips.

A great stay in Iceland in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at cozy studio for 3 nights recently during a short break to Iceland. Before we arrived Sveinn was extremley helpful not only with arrangements concerning our booking but just general hints and tips to help us during our stay. The apartment was like its name very cozy and warm. Clean and comfortable and in a great location for the capital's centre without being noisy. We loved Iceland and were very happy to be staying in such lovely place.
