You cannot find a more central location than ours. The main landmark in town, Hallgrímskirkja, is just outside the living room window. We are a short walk from the main street Laugavegur (filled with cafés, restaurants, bars, art galleries, and shops) and within a ten-minute walk from Harpa, The National Theatre, The National Art Gallery, Tjörnin, and other cultural meccas.
We live on the top floor of a classic Icelandic residence. The apartment offers incredible views of the city landmark Hallgrímskirkja (the big church) and the center square, the statue of Leifur Eiriksson, as well as distant volcanic mountain ranges of Bláfjall and Hengill. The apartment was fully renovated in 2017.
Guests staying in the flat have a fully equipped kitchen, including dishwasher, microwave, stove, and oven, and a spacious living area with artisanal dining table and Danish design couch, in addition to a quiet bedroom and wonderful shower with optimal water pressure.
Other amenities include Wi-fi television with complementary Netflix access, high-speed Wi-fi, and washing-machine use. There is also free parking on the street in front of the apartment, and by Hallgrímskirkja. The apartment is ideal for a couple or solo traveller seeking a cozy, private space to get great sleep in support of Icelandic adventures. It is also suitable for longer-stay guests who desire a central home to support work in the city. Due to the walk-up staircase, the apartment is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.
There's a fountain in the bedroom, for turning on if you have problems falling asleep. And a book on Astral Projections in the bathroom, for those who want to travel farther away.
We look forward to having you stay in our lovely home! Please do contact us if you have any questions.
When arriving in the city by bus from Keflavík Airport (recommended, at 20 USD per head), you would find yourself at the central bus station (BSÍ), which is a ten-minute walk to the apartment, or a few minutes by taxi. Most buses from the airport will, if asked, drop you off at Hallgrímskirkja, Hótel Leifur Eiríksson, or Café Loki, all within a minute´s walk from the apartment.
Buses returning from sight-seeing tours, Northern lights tours and such, will usually have their drop-off points at Hallgrímskirkja across the street, or at Einar Jónsson Art Museum, an arm's length away from the apartment.
Hotels in the area, some within a minute's walk, have easy pick-up for those leaving for the airport.
