Reykjavik Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Attractive apartment near Laugardalur and City Center, Free wifi

Luxury apartment with a good panorama overview of Reykjavik. The apartment is situated on the 8th floor with a nice panorama overview from the terrace to south over Reykjavik and surroundings. The apartment is in a walking distance to the best thermal pool area in Rekyjavik in Laugardalur, and the beautiful valley of Ellidará. The apartment does have a one bedroom with a king size bed and a smaller bedroom with a bunk bed for two person. In the living room is a new futon sofa that sleeps two persons. In all the apartment houses up to six people. The apartment is fully equipped and newly furnished. with a dish washer, flat screen TV, and a Blue Ray DVD. There is an elevator in the building and In front of the building there is a parking place.

The apartment has a free wifi

Just across the street there is a supermarket, and the best baker in Reykjavik. The Baker opens at 7:00 in the morning.

Just outside the apartment there is a busstop that brings you directly to the city center. The bus ride takes about 20 minutes.

Reykjavik City: Reykjavik City area Reykjavik is a great place to visit, whether for some cultural nourishment, a spot of unbridled fun or to recharge your batteries. The vast, beautiful landscape around Reykjavik lends itself to innumerable outdoor activities. Visitors to Reykjavik will be impressed by the city’s proximity to nature and struck by the cleanliness of the city itself.

Laugardalur: From the apartament it is a nice walking tour to Laugardalur, where we recomend a visit to geothermical pool in the valley.

Laugardalur (Hot Spring Valley) is a major centre for sports and recreation in the capital. In Laugardalur you will find a the largest outdoor thermal pool in Reykjavik, Laugardalslaug, in which you can swim all year round.

Laugardalur also has free entry to our beautiful Botanical Garden, with woods, ponds and birdlife. Beneath the branches the lovely Café Flora is a hidden gem.

At the edge of the Laugardalur valley, not far from Laugardalur Arena, is a strangely shaped, domed white building. It is known as the Reykjavik Art Museum’s Ásmundarsafn sculpture collection. This used to be the studio of Asmundur Sveinsson (1893-1982), a pioneer of Icelandic sculpture. In addition to his works exhibited inside the museum, a sculpture garden outside contains many of his monumental works.

VIdey: Why not see Reykjavik from a different angle and take a visit to the historical and beutiful Island of Videy which you can see from the apartment. The ferry is in a walking distance (10 min) by the harbour near the apartment.

Superb apartment in Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had an enjoyable stay in this lovely apartment. Very comfortable throughout, with a well-appointed kitchen. Super clean and tidy, with easy parking. Near the Laugardalur pool complex, which we all recommend. A few minutes walk to supermarkets, and a short drive into the central city. The owner was helpful and quick to communicate. Definitely would use this apartment again. Takk!

Schönes Apartement mit toller Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Wer mitten zwischen den Islændern wohnen möchte ist hier richtig. Günstig an der Sæbraut gelegen, für Mietwagenfahrer optimal. Auch wer den Strætó benutzt ist hier mit der leið 12 und der leið 16 (nicht am WE) gut angebunden bis Hlemmur 9 min, bis Mjódd 5 min. Bónus und Hagkaup sind in Sichtweite, alles da für die Selbstverpflegung. Praktisch ist auch, dass f¨r die Waschmaschine das Waschpulver im Schrank bereit steht.

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the perfect place to stay for an amazing price. Everything was exactly as described and Vidar provides you with everything you need for your stay. We rented a car for our trip which made doing everything we wanted very easy. This is the perfect location as well. You have pretty much everything you need right at your finger tips. Bus station, car rental, gas station, grocery store, bakery and more right across the street. City center is a quick 8 min drive from the apartment. I was surprised as to how easy it was to drive to all of our destinations and to find my way around the entire area. Vidar was very quick to respond and very accommodating. Thanks for allowing us to stay in your amazing apartment. This was truly the perfect way to celebrate turning 30!

Excellent Place to stay in Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

We rented a car and were 5 minutes away from downtown Reykjavik. Vidar and Bergdis were extremely cordial and helpful. The apartment was exactly as the pictures posted and was very quiet. There a large number of amenities (supermarket, department store) just across Saebraut, about 1 minute car ride away. The kitchen area allowed us to prepare breakfast and lunch if as we ventured into the country side. Over all 2 thumbs up!

Clean, comfortable, well equipped

  • 4 of 5

Outside the downtown core, but it's easy enough to use public transit and get to the center of the town. The apartment was clean, well equipped with everything we needed and comfortable. The owner was very responsive and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you for a great stay!

very nice and cheapp

  • 5 of 5

You need to have a car if you visit Iceland. This place is aproximately three km from downtown, and you can easily park free about 400 meters from the heart of Reykjavik. The money you save by renting this flat pays the rent of the car.Book it in the airport, so you have easy transport all over Iceland. The flat was well equipped and the communication with Vidar was fast and good. Nice to have the view over Reykjavik from 8th floor. Use Vidars recommandations - especially the local swimmingpool in Laugadalur and the bakery. There is a great park nearby too. We indeed like good coffe, and there was a good coffee machine in the flat too. You can easily be 5 persons (3 adults and 2 kids) in this flat, it is precisely as the pictures show. We will come again.
