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.

Welcoming apartment in great location!

  • 5 of 5

This bright, open apartment was such a welcome relief after a long plane ride! We immediately had difficulties with our phone service, so I was very thankful that I had the VRBO app to communicate through to organize key pick-up - I was very grateful to the caretakers for their flexibility. Once we got settled in, we were incredibly taken with the apartment - clean and open inside, the beautiful view outside, the morning light pouring in the windows to wake us up, and the bus stop located right outside made it such a great place to rise early and start exploring the city. I have a family member with rheumatoid arthritis, and not only was the elevator in the building useful for them, it made getting our bags to the top of the building so much easier. It was also great to be able to explore the city on a weekend but be far enough away from the bars to not be kept awake by partying! It was also great to have a worry-free and convenient place to park our rental car and bus into the city center, as the few times we tried to park downtown (especially at night) were pretty stressful! If you're planning on exploring Reykjavik for a few days before setting out into more rural areas of Southern Iceland, this is a phenomenal place to stay.

Pretty location and nice inside.

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was great. The beds soft and worked for our girls trip of 5. Only down fall was tours would not pick up so we had to walk to near hostel. The walk was not bad, just a little about 15mins. Other than that the view was amazing and the area quite.

Good value, very well equipped,comfortable apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were really helpful and prompt with answering queries prior to our arrival. Everything was ready for us and Vidar was there to meet us on arrival. We are a family of five, including 3 teenagers and there was plenty of room. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed to prepare a meal after a long day out. There is a bonus supermarket nearby and also a bakery.. A great place to come back to after being out all day. It is easy to get to Reykjavik from the apartment. We hired a car and there was plenty of parking in the free car park belonging to the apartments. The apartment is on the 8 th floor which has good views and there is a reliable lift which was always available to use with no waiting. A really good base for exploring the area, would highly recommend.

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!
