Perfect place, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Anna's place was lovely! The studio was in the perfect location just blocks away from downtown Reykjavik. It was just a 5 minute (or less) walk to restaurants and a grocery store in the heart of downtown. Having snacks in the room upon arrival was a nice surprise and much appreciated after a long day of travel. We were initially thrown off by the size, as it seemed a bit small compared to what we are used to in the states. However, it was the perfect size, and had everything we needed (especially since we really were only in the room at night to sleep). The bed was comfortable, and the blackout curtains were perfect since it stayed light well past our bedtime! It had everything you needed to make coffee/tea in the morning, and all the supplies to cook a quick meal if you wanted. It was great to enjoy a cup of coffee and eat breakfast in the room before leaving on a day trip around Iceland.

Anna was great to work with throughout the entire process. She was a great hostess. We had no issues finding the studio, getting in, or hooking up to wifi. She was nice enough to come and personally let us know about closed roads due to an unexpected change in the weather. I would recommend this place for anyone visiting Iceland, and we will definitely stay here again if we have the opportunity to come back!

Fantastic, so cute and cozy! Amazing location, great owner w/great amenities and extras.

  • 5 of 5

Really amazing experience, apartment is so centrally located and within walking distance of everything, although we rented a car and parking was no problem. Small studio, couldn't handle more than two people, but lovely decoration and a great refuge to come back to from many long day trips. Owner Anna Karen gave us some amazing local tips for enjoying our vacation. Highly recommend!!!

A wonderful stay at a cute place!

  • 5 of 5

Anna and her cute flat were delightful. We arrived late and thought we had the correct address, but we did not. We called Anna and she came out to meet us on the street. Her place is really cute, convenient, and very comfortable. It is so close to the famous church, you can get there in about two minutes, as well as to the two main shopping streets. It is one room with a great kitchen corner. Anna had yogurt, cereal, fruit, coffee, and tea for us. My husband loved her shower!

Anna helped us figure out the bus schedules to the airport, which was very helpful. Delightful place and fascinating city!

Great studio!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the studio apt was wonderful! It is right in the heart of the city, walking distance to everything we wanted to see in Reykjavik. The bus stop is just a few steps away so very convenient for our excursions and airport transfers. Our host was so accommodating; we thoroughly enjoyed the fruit/yogurt provided for our first breakfast. We could not have asked for a better location or accommodations! We would highly recommend this rental for anyone wanting to explore Reykjavik. We hope to come to Iceland again and would definitely love to stay at the studio again!

This little spot is warm and cozy and will stay in my heart for years to come! I highly recommend the apartment - has everything you'll need for a short stay in such a beautiful country! Anna, you're a dear and thank you for your literary recommendations - your brother is next on my list. With gratitude, Stephanie.

This cozy little studio is located in the old part of Reykjavik, surrounded with artists. Even though we are in the city centre it's a very quiet neighbourhood. All the main attraction are within easy walking distance, such as shops, restaurants, bars, art galleries, well just everything the city has to offer.

A swimming pool is close by where you can enjoy swimming or have a nice relaxing dip in the famous geothermal hot pots and on a hot summer day, yes we have few of them :) you can go to the beach.

Hallgrimskirkja (church) with its high tower is at our doorstep, so to say and there you get a great view over the city. The National Gallery of Iceland within walking distance, theater and cinema houses.
