Wonderful apartment for exploring and enjoying Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautiful and immaculate - everything is exactly as pictured. The beds were very comfortable with high quality pillows, duvet, and linens. Kitchen was very well equipped, I cooked at least one meal every day for our family and had everything I needed. I was even able to make a pretty good meat soup after having some at Geysir! The stove and oven are topknotch, nice full sized fridge/freezer, fancy dishwasher. Very good wifi, 50+ movies in English on DVD - great selection.

There is a bakery literally at the corner for fresh bread and pastries, the 24 hour mini-mart has just about everything you'd need for quick meals and snacks - Skyr and wonderful cheese! There is also a sausage shop by the bakery, great bacon, sausages, and other cured meats. We did not rent a car and had no need - there is a bus stop right in front, bus comes every 30 mins like clockwork, so if you time it correctly you can walk out the apartment door and be downtown in the main shopping street in 15 mins. If it were warmer, you could easily walk along the water right to the Harpa or Old Harbor.

The thermal baths up the street were amazing for relaxing after a day of sightseeing/adventures in Iceland. If you get the Reykjavik city card, admission is free. There is a tourist office close by to plan adventures and get the city card. There are hotels and guesthouses nearby (10 mins walk) where you can arrange pick up for any tours you book or the Flybus. Our tour operators dropped us off in front of the apartment at the end of the day since it is close to the major road.

Our hosts were very nice and easy to get hold of for questions. We loved the apartment for it's closeness to everything we needed but far enough from downtown to be quiet and relaxing at the end of the day. It is on the 4th (top) floor of the building - stairs are carpeted and easy to walk. My husband even saw some Northern Lights from the balcony one night when he was up late.

Highly recommend!

Quiet & quaint, accessible & accommodating - WOW!!

  • 5 of 5

This home away from home was exactly as described! The owners are friendly and informative. The neighborhood is quiet but in a superb location for walking or public transportation. The apartment is spacious and well worth the stairs (56 of them). Truly a hidden gem - Highly recommend!!!

Great spot close to town

  • 5 of 5

Great top floor apartment close to downtown. Pool/spa and 24x7 grocery nearby. Nice views. A bit noisy on Friday/Saturday night but not too bad. 15 minute walk along the water to downtown so no car required. Was not able to check in until almost 7 PM which was a bit of a pain but overall worth the wait.

Awesome apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 9 month old baby girl and I have to say I was really pleased with it. The apartment is exactly as described and extremely baby friendly! A short distance from the centre of town, maybe 35minutes walk, but very handy if you have access to a car. V close to a little 24/7 shop and bakery and the city's swimming pool. We cooked a lot in the apartment and had everything we needed. Gorgeous little balcony looking out onto gardens below and the city. Will definitely return if I visit Iceland again. Owner very helpful with maps and advice on local area. The apartment and furnishings have a certain class about them. Just lovely. Stay here - you will not regret it!
