About Gudny

I have been living around the world for the past 16 years due to husbands work in NYC, Beijing and London. We always miss our expat lifestyle while in Iceland and meeting an international crowd is our way of continuing our expat life, although on a smaller scale.

Gudny purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Gudny chose Reykjavik

We love the neighbourhood. Although not right in the smack of downtown it's only 20 minutes walk to all major sights. For my family it's perfect, great schools, colleges and University of Iceland as well as Reykjavik University a short bus ride away. Klambratun green area is almost in the back garden. Numerous cafes and restaurants within 10 minutes walk from the house.

What makes this apartment unique

Again, we love the neighbourhood. We don't like to live out in the suburbs where you always need a car to get about. We like being able to walk and just leave the car at home! This house was build in 1943 and all the flats in the house were well designed, with spacious rooms and high ceilings. Although the flat is located on a lower ground floor it is very bright and cozy.

Comfortable stay for our family of 4. We were able to walk to grocery stores, city centre, and waterfront. Well equipped kitchen and luxurious bathroom complete with towel warmer. Tour bus picked us up just 2 blocks from the flat making it very convenient to see attractiions.

Spacious and wonderfully located apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at this apartment! My husband and I, his parents, and our 3 and 5-year-old boys stayed here very comfortably. The room sizes were good and the apartment was well laid out. We thought the spacious bathroom with the double headed shower was particularly nice! We really liked the large windows which let in lots of light. The backyard and the grill were great to have. It was wonderful to be able to easily grill for the whole family in such a beautiful garden.

The location of the apartment was also ideal for us. It was very easy to park on the street. It was nice and quiet, which was helpful for getting the kids to sleep, but only a 10-minute walk to Hallgrímskirkja or the down to the water where there was access to the sculpture and shore walk, and about 15-20 minute walk to town. It was very easy to drive most other places in Reykjavik. There were also several grocery stores within walking distance and even more within a ten-minute drive.

Gudny was a great host. She answered all questions promptly, and she made it very easy for us to check in and out. We really appreciated all of her help and knowledge about the area!

Overall, this apartment was great, and we would definitely like to stay here again in the future.

Nice, clean and relaxing apartment.

  • 5 of 5

My two daughters and I had a great visit. Apartment is in a good location - close to center, but in a quiet neighborhood. Apartment was large and clean. It was easy to find parking on the street. Owner was friendly and helpful. A couple minor suggestions- I would have liked more kitchen knives for food prep and the gas tank for the outside grill was empty. Overall, I can recommend and we would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Hi Chris. Thank you for your kind words. I wish you had let me know about the gas, I would have replaced immediately, I had an extra one in the garage. I´m happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay.
