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 Hlíðar

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.

Great place to stay. No problems from start to finish. Gudny was very friendly and helpful. Spacious 3 bed apartment with everything you need for a Relaxing value for money break. Close to the centre and all the sights of Reykjavik. Pickup for tours an easy 3-4 minute walk away. We would definitely stay here again

Excellent base for exploring Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

Gudny's apartment gets it all right: great location (10 minute walk from Hlemmur Square), super layout (bedrooms separated from each other), huge bathroom (with double shower head and lots of room to lay out toiletries), fine and fully stocked kitchen (with dishwasher!), large capacity washer and dryer, easy 10 minute walk to mid-level supermarket (Kronan), nicely set up living/dining room with great view into courtyard. The beds are comfortable, the linens good, the towels plentiful. And there's Gudny herself: accommodating, friendly, ready to step in if needed (and we needed her one night when the neighbors upstairs partied too late and too loudly). The six of us staying here were very happy. It doesn't get much better.

We really enjoyed having the luxury of the kitchen which helped us to save money. Liked having the tv and Netflix access. We found it difficult to find parking late in the evening and often had to walk from very far down the block.

Fabulous well equipped flat right in the heart of Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here, more than enough space for a set of parents, grandparents and teenager. (Teenager particularly appreciated the Wi-Fi!). We cooked most of our meals here and found the kitchen well equipped. It is very expensive to eat out in Iceland. The flat is close to the shops and walking distance from several museums. Local supermarket (Bonus) is a short walk. I can thoroughly recommended the accommodation and Reykjavik as a holiday destination. Hire a car and drive out of the city to see more of Iceland.

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.
