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!

Wonderful intro to Iceland

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but amazing things to say. First, Helena was very easy to communicate with and responded to all messages in less than 24hrs. Upon arrival, we were greeted and the home was in great condition. The location is perfect to downtown and the BSI (bus terminal most tours are stationed). There were pots, pans, cooking/eating utensils, tea and coffee (which was used often). Her requests were simple and she provided a wonderful tour pointing out important things when we met. Helena's neighbors are also awesome; I met a couple while washing clothes prior to leaving. I recommend her home to anyone and hope to secure stay there again!

Thank you, Helena!

This is a great place to stay. Central to bus stop 11 to catch all bus tours. A few short blocks to downtown. Has all the home amenities you need plus more. Clean and comfortable. Host is very responsive to any questions or needs you may need. We will be returning during the summer for another stay with the kids. There is not enough words to say how great this place is. you will not have to look any further then here. Just book the apartment and see for your self. Thank you again for the use of your apartment.

Perfect location for enjoying the city center!

  • 5 of 5

Helena is a wonderful hostess. She was very fast to respond to our questions and requests. The apartment was warm and cozy and met all of our needs. There is easy access from here to many wonderful sights. We rented a car and found our on and off ramps quite easily to and from this location. (I do highly recommend a GPS loaded with an Iceland chip.) Many things are within walking distance. I can highly recommend this apartment for your stay.

Incredible location and perfect for our family of 4

  • 5 of 5

Helena is an outstanding host. Her property is in great condition and a perfect location in Reykjavik. We stayed for over one week. The neighbors were quiet. The only drawback was access to the community dryer but it was a minor inconvenience. We would stay again.

Great Stay in Reykjavik!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I stayed at Helena Ingvadóttir's apartment from October 7 - 13th, while visiting Reykjavik. We used the apartment as a base from which we took day trips around the island. Helena was the perfect host, greeting us at the door, showing us the apartment and providing all towels, etc. While we took in the local atmosphere and ate at some excellent restaurants, we also prepared some meals in the kitchen, which was well-equipped with all appliances and utensils. Everything worked great and we quickly felt very much at home. In mid-week, Helena offered to provide new towels and was always available to provide us with suggested places to eat, attractions and getting around the city and the island. Excellent place, excellent host!
