The lovely apartment is all rather newly fully renovated and includes all the equipment needed to make you feel right at home. The apartment has 2 bedrooms, one equipped with a queen size bed (140cm x 200cm) and the other with two single beds (90cm x 200cm). There is a sofa and a sleeping couch in the living/dining room.
Six people will be very comfortable in the apartment, but there is enough sleeping space for seven adults and one child as there is additionally a single roll-away bed for an adult and one travel bed for a child, both of quality.
In the kitchen there is among other kitchen tool necessities - a dishwasher, stove, microwave, fridge/freezer, and tableware for 8 persons, coffee machine and a sink.
In the bathroom there is a bath-tub with a shower, a washer and a dryer as well as soaps, WC-paper, and towels.
The apartment is baby safe and comes with a stroller, travel bed, high baby chair, some plastic dishes, glasses and bowls, and a toy-box.
On addition it has bed linen, some books, board games, a high speed internet access and TV that are included.
The apartment is on the 1st floor/ground floor; outside there is a nice garden with a gas-barbecue, an outside bench and a table for you to enjoy the weather and a nice dinner.
Though the apartment is in the heart and center of down town Reykjavík the house is hidden in between two streets and therefore has no street noise or any disturbances from the vibrant night live resulting from the apartment being located in Reykjavik´s lively downtown area. Within 1-4 minutes walking distance you will find very good restaurants, cafés, museums, a cinema, galleries, a theater, a public library and an indoor/outdoor swimming pool.
Here you are in the heart of Reykjavik and on the next street you find Laugarvegur which is the main shopping street in down town Reykjavík that has a good but low cost grocery store. The name of the street this apartment is on is Grettisgata and if you walk a minute in the other direction from Laugarvegur you shortly come to Skólavörðustíg, a beautiful arty street full of culture and good food, and in a few minutes of strolling you arrive at Hallgrimskirkja; the tallest church in Iceland. The church is a great landmark and is visible from all over Reykjavik.
Being Reykjavík's main street, parking at Laugavegur (and the closest streets surrounding it) are not free on business hours, and it will cost about 1 USD (150 krona) per hour.
As the apartment is located in the very heart of Reykjavík, in 30-40 minutes of easy walk you can get to most places in the city.
The bus from the airport drops you off in BSI, the main bus and taxi station, a 10-15 minute walk from the apartment.

I stayed in Hrannar's place earlier this summer with my wife, our two year-old son, and my wife's parents. The apartment was fantastic - comfortable, clean, large, and perfectly located in Reykjavik. I really can't say enough about the location- within easy walking distance of almost everything in the city, during the day and night both. We had an amazing time.
We stayed for 5 days in this house with 2 kids. Its perfect location near downtown. main street is just 1 block away. Never had any issue on the paid street parking. Its always available.
Going from America, we have had some issues in operating washer/Dryer since their setup was different. But Owner was quick enough to answer all the questions via whatsapp chat. this house is perfect for a family of 4 people..
The property was a great size for our family of 2 adults & 2 kids. Perfect location within walking distance of everything in downtown.
The apartment is a minute walk away from the main commercial street of Reykjavik and within walking distance of most of the things you want to see but at the same time is very quiet. It is a great spot. Nothing fancy inside but is does the job well. The owner was very helpful with some logistic details and very quick to respond to any request. Highly recommended.
We had a great time in Iceland and loved the rental. Its exactly as pics show. Very clean and great location. The owners were very helpful and made sure that our needs were met. We would def stay there again and recommended to others.
Owner's description was nothing like what we experienced We took pictures to show vrbo what it looks like now This listing should be pulled for misrepresentation and deception The apt was difficult to find Pathway to apt looked nothing like the pictures It was overgrown with weeds, no flowers, broken picnic table, broken clothes line broken fence
Electric wires were exposed and dangling at front door, broken sofa in living room Bathroom switch was taped to wall, bare light bulbs, no bath mat, shower awkwardly attached to side wall rather than at faucet end of tub Bare minimum dishes and tableware in kitchen, no coffee pot, no dish towel, dented refrigerator needs defrosting We had no room in 2 very small bedrooms to accommodate luggage for 4 persons, broken lamp in one and no lamp in other bedroom, shades did not fit, mismatched shabby linens and ill-fitting comforters We had to make our own beds !
Property was cleaned, but not completely renovated as advertised, a fire hazard regarding exposed wires This listing is inaccurate in photos and description and needs maintenance The owner was not available and could not be reached We would recommend to avoid booking this property
We loved our stay in Reykjavik. The location cannot be beat. We used it as homebase and had a rental car for our three days in Iceland. We drove all the way to the southeast side of the country to the glacier lagoon in one day (the midnight sun was helpful)! The apartment couldn't be in a better location in town. We were able to walk to shops, restaurants, etc. The area felt very safe. We did get a parking ticket the one day we slept in and forgot about the street parking during the day, so be aware!
The apartment itself was very nice with just the right amount of amenities. It's small, but completely do-able with plenty of storage space. There was an issue with water in the bathroom when we stayed, but the owner was planning to fix this after we left, so hopefully future renters won't have to deal with this.
The washer does its job, but it's a standard Europe washer/dryer combo, so don't expect it to actually dry your clothes. But there is a drying rack, so no worries.
We would stay here again! We had everything we would need in an apartment!
