Overview

Reykjavik Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Self-catering downtown central Reykjavik apartment

Large 3 bedroom Reykjavik apartment in the heart of the city for family holidays or romantic get aways. Walking distance to most everything in Reykjavik. The apartment is 1.5 blocks to main shopping, cafe, restaurant, gallery street and 2.5 blocks from shoreline, but on a quiet street just steps to the action. Plenty of space for a family to spread out and eat in. Located so that you can walk out for a pizza or a romantic dinner near by. The apartment has 3 bedrooms that can sleep 6 people in beds and we can provide a floor mattress for additional travellers. There are 2 couches that children can easily sleep on too. We offer a home like environment which appeals to travellers who do not like cold hotel environments. This is our family home when we are in Reykjavik and offer it to our guests when we are away for most of the year. A playground around the corner for the kids. The kitchen is equipped for cooking full meals. There is a full dining and kitchen table for meals. We have a parking spot in front of the apartment. And just a few minutes out of the city you have all the great nature that Iceland has to offer.

Super Location! Didn't want to come home!

  • 4 of 5

This 2nd floor apartment was perfect for our recent visit, although somewhat older we found it charming and spacious. It is within walking distance to museums, restaurants, shops, harbor, Grayline bus stop etc. It was also surprisingly very quiet. We found an amazing bakery in a brightly painted building on Frakkastigur St.; don't miss their pastries, we had the best fish ever at Hornid & Iceland Fish & Chips & loved watching the Euro Cup on the big screens in the City Center. We felt incredibly safe even in the very large, well behaved crowds, & felt comfortable allowing our 2 teens to explore the street art together without us. Thanks to Anna for allowing us drop off our luggage before she was finished cleaning the apt- greatly appreciated.

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was wonderful! With a family of 4, having 3 bedrooms helped to spread out. The location was great and having a reserved parking space was very convenient. I would recommend renting a car in Iceland as it makes it easier to see the sites around the Golden Circle along with driving to the Blue Lagoon. We were there for the summer solstice and it was light for 72 hours! We were also there during the Euro Cup and got caught up in all the excitement! Brian is easy to work with and everything was described very well.

Perfect location and had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Reykjavik Apartment as a group of 6 for one week and it was perfect. Super clean, outstanding location and walkable to everything the city has to offer. Plenty of room to hang out as a group and a very homey feel. Bedrooms/bedding were comfortable, kitchen well stocked for cooking, bathroom large and well appointed, and a very comfortable living room. Communication with Brian was excellent and responsive, even while we were in Iceland. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend!

A great find in Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

I get together every few years with two old friends for a "boys week". It is always in a different place and this time it was Iceland. I have almost always had good luck with VRBO / HomeAway and this was no exception. Brian, the owner was easy to work with and very accommodating. The apartment was certainly not fancy but it was clean, quiet and well stocked. The location could not have been better....only 2 blocks from the main street in the old part of the city where all the shops and restaurants are located. Iceland turned out to be quite a unique and interesting place. Everyone we met were friendly, helpful and most everybody speaks English very well, so no worries about language. I would recommend booking this apartment without hesitation and if I were to return to Reykjavik I would definitely stay here again.

Everything we wanted. Truly perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is exactly how it is described. We loved the location and the parking spot. We rented a car at the airport then drove 45 minutes to the apartment. It was nice to have the car for sightseeing, but also super convenient to have the parking spot in town. Apartment is very clean and really spacious. We were 4 adult friends traveling together. Easily could fit 2 families in the 3 bedrooms. The location is perfect - truly in the heart of the city. One block from the water in one direction and one block to restaurants, bars and shopping in the other direction. Brian was very responsive via email and phone. I definitely recommend this property to anyone, and I plan to go back as soon as possible!
