Overview

About the property

Bedroom with double bed, and livingroom with double sofabed and one single bed.

This beautiful and very comfortable apartment has the BEST LOCATION in city center Reykjavik.

This old beautiful house was build in 1938, and was completely renovated on the outside in spring 2017. Very safe and quiet neighborhood, in old trendy houses, popular neighborhood in Reykjavík. Only 4 minutes walk to the main shopping street; Laugavegur. This apartment is very bright and cozy. It was renewed at large part in February 2014, with new beautiful floors, new bedroom cabinets, and the bathroom was also renewed completely only few years ago, with bathtub and shower, fully tiled, Especially clean, nice and quiet accommodation. But still close to everything you want to experience in Reykjavik. The master bedroom has one double bed, and the other room(the livingroom) has a double sofabed and one single bed.

Both rooms has a door to close, so it is actually 2 bedrooms. it is also possible to add a small bed(A CRIB) for babies under 3 years old.

The living room has a tv, dvd. And a dining table for 4.

A nice swimming pool (also hot tubs)is at the next street corner, 3 min walk.( it is now in repair and will open in october 2017)

In the city center you will find a lot of great restaurants, museums, shops (and many beautiful Icelandic designers shops) and bars, who many has a live music every night.

The Reykjavik bus terminal is only 10 min walk away, see the golden circle, Thingvellir, the blue lagoon, and more beautiful places.

The harbour is near by, beautyful walking path to it along the sea.

10-11 supermarket is only 5 min walk away, open 24hours, at Laugavegur.

Another bigger and cheaper supermarket called Bonus is also on Laugavegur,

8-10 minutes walk.

This apartment is great located if you like to travel without renting car :)

(But if you choose to have a car, there is a parking space in front of the house)

You have everything within a walking distance, also the bus station HLEMMUR is 4 min walk away.

The bigger bus station BSI, ( where the bus from the airport stops ) is about 10 min away.

Sight seeing bus is during summer, its a nice way to see Reykjavík in a 2hours bus-trip.

'Perlan' , the glass house we have on one of our pictures here.

On the top floor is a great restaurant, and actually the floor is turning while you sit and enjoy dinner, one circle per hour :)

And also there so many things to see, many day trips you can take with a bus from BSI.

For example Thingvellir, Blue lagoon, Gullfoss (waterfall) , Geysir and many more.....

There are also numer of nice restaurants within 500m. :

Wonderful apartment, location, and host!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was a perfect base camp for our family of four during our recent trip to Iceland. Helena was lovely to book with, very responsive to questions before we arrived and made everything so welcoming for us, even with our very late night arrival! The apartment is located very centrally and everything in Reykjavik was an easy walk away. The apartment is very well equipped with everything you could need from coffee maker to towels and with a quick trip to the local Bonus we were set with groceries for the week. Thank you Helena for helping make our vacation so perfect!

VERY CUTE HOME!

  • 4 of 5

The home is walking distance to many of the main attractions in Reykjavik! However, we did rent a car and found that the parking on the street was easy enough. The home is smaller but more than big enough for me and my significant other. The home was always warm and toasty and the floors were heated which was a great plus! The kitchen and bathroom seemed to be newly remodeled. Kitchen had the basic amenities. The bathtub was high and almost killed me each time I would get in and out, but I think it's just a short person's problem lol. Also, we were told the washer and dryer were available for use, but it is also in use by the other tenants (just something to note). Also, I wish there were more towels for use; bring extra for yourselves if you're not planning on doing laundry. But, overall, it's a beautiful home, very clean, and homely! We would definitely come back.

Great Price. Great Location. Cozy Apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This was a value that can not be beat. Much better than being stuck in a one room hotel. The owner was pleasant and easy to deal with. Apartment was less than 10 minute walk from great shops, restaurants and bars.

Big note ... was that the laundry facilities were in the basement where other apartment dwellers live. Going into the laundry room, my husband used a washer that was available. No problems .... but upon a second entry, we discovered (by another tenant) that the washer that belonged to our unit is the very nicer, newer washer next to window. I mistakenly put my clothes in anyone tenant's washer. She was very kind and directed me to the one that belongs to this unit. Save yourself some shame and pick the washer next to the window! Wonderful place to stay

Great apartment that is close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I loved our stay at Helena's apartment. It was exactly as pictured, was very comfy, clean, and conveniently located near the downtown and the BSI bus station.. Helena was very easy to get in touch with and happy to answer our questions. We would definitely stay here again!

Thanks so much!

Cute and Cozy Little Flat

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay and this cute and cozy little apartment. It's about a 10 minute walk from downtown, and about a 20 minute walk if you want to go all the way to the harbor area. The kitchen is stocked with some basic essentials and we really appreciated the coffee maker, coffee grounds and sugar! We shopped at a nearby grocery store (Kronan, a two minute drive away) and bought groceries for the week. It's so convenient to have a kitchen so you can prepare some simple meals and save lots of money since Reykjavik restaurants are very expensive. Helena made it very easy to check in and check out and overall we had a great stay and just a wonderful time in Iceland.
