About the property

Beautiful Three Bedroom Apartment In The Heart Of Reykjavik.

Stylish and cozy renovated apartment (90 sqm) on first floor down town Reykjavík. Sleeps 6 comfortably in 3 spacious bedrooms, each with double bed. Living room with flat screen TV, wireless internet and Tivoli sound system, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher. Both living room and kitchen are with garden view.Bathroom with tub and a shower. Nice garden in the front.

Comes with all bedding, towels, shampoo, soap and hairdryer.

When stepping out of the apartment you will find yourself right behind Hallgrimskirkja, the largest church in Iceland and nr. 1 tourist attraction in Reykjavik. The church is one of the city´s best known landmarks and visible throughout the city. The church is used as an observation tower and you can take a lift up to the viewing deck.

Just around the corner you will find Sundhöllin (The Swimming Palace) the oldest geothermal pool in Iceland with indoor pools and outdoor hot tubs with different temperature. Many locals never miss a day!

Laugavegur shopping street is just a stone´s throw away (5min walk). There you will find a low cost supermarket (Bónus) and next street down (Hverfisgata) you will find 24 hour supermarket (10/11). Despite the shopping malls in Reykjavik Laugavegur still maintaines the charm of historical shopping street and is home to the more exclusive stores in Iceland. It´s also home to many bars, cafés, nightclubs and restaurants. On Friday and Saturday nights the street is often filled with people all night long.

About Kata og Svenni

I am interested in hosting people from all over the world. I am an outdoor person and love travelling. I have travelled all over Iceland on horses and snowmobiles. I love our nature, especially the northern lights which I hope all my guests will experience.

Kata og Svenni purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Kata og Svenni chose Reykjavik

In this property you have Reykjavik city and all the main landmarks within minutes of walking. You have the nightlife but yet a quiet residential street to stay in.

There are four apartments in this hallway. The house was built in 1927 and has an old charm. The apartment is newly renovated and has an easy going charm and nice atmosphere. In summer time you can enjoy sitting outside in the garden facing south and you also have a garden in the back where you can enjoy the evening sun.

We chose this property because of its close proximity to the city centre. The location was excellent but the area and style of building and it's interior was not what we expected. It was described as a superior city centre apartment but it was disappointing. The toilet appeared to have a leak and the beds were uncomfortable with a strange arrangement as the second and third rooms were not separate you had to go through the second to get to the third. Parking was also very difficult as the spaces outside the apartments were always taken.

We stayed for 2 nights in this lovely apartment right behind the famous church and walking distance to REK. The apartment was clean and well appointed. We had everything we needed to explore this amazing city and the owners were very accommodating to any questions we had. Thanks again for your hospitality! Hope to be back in Iceland again soon!

Excellent property within walking distance to the main areas. The free parking was a bonus

We really enjoyed this apartment. We made breakfast every day. There were free laundry machines in the basement that we didn't use but could be handy for people staying longer. We walked into town and to the old swimming pool easily from here. Highly recommended.

We rented the house for 2 nights and it was perfect! Very centrally located in Reykjavik and close to excellent restaurants and all the shops. We had a car and had no issue finding or parking around the house.

This is a great property located directly behind the largest landmark in downtown Reykjavik. There's is plenty of free parking available and the apartment is spacious with everything a traveler could need (including laundry facilities). All of the shopping and nightlife are within very easy walking distance. I would most definitely stay here again.
