Nice and renewed studio apartment in Seltjarnarnes, close to Reykjavik centre.
average rating of 4.9 based on 20 reviews


  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment - plenty of space, lovely decor, and everything you need including a well supplied kitchen, a wash machine, and very comfortable bed. The location is easy too - walkable to downtown Reykjavik and if you have a car it's a quick drive thru town. Grocery store is just a few blocks away. Erla is a gem and went far above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. She is a most gracious host, even providing some groceries in the frig, which was really nice after a long plane ride! I can't think of any downside to this place - it's just great.

Perfect for two

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is centrally located near a supermarket, bakery and other shops. It was clean and just the right size for two of us during our visit. The off street parking was convenient and Erla made it easy for us to access the apartment as we arrived and departed very early. Great stay.

Very clean, close to city centre

  • 5 of 5

Erla was nice and accommodating from the first time I contacted her. Her apartment is very clean and comfortable. It is close to city center, 5 minute drive. We had a car during our stay at Erla's apartment. There is a 24 hour grocery store within walking distance as well as a liquor store. The area is very nice and considered to be among the most desirable places to live near Reykjavik due to its accessibility to the city.

I had a hard time sleeping because I felt to warm and the light wasn't completely blocked out of the windows at night. I asked Erla for a fan and more curtains in the morning, by the afternoon she had a fan and more curtains waiting for us. We would stay there again!
