Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Reykjavik - Cosy center apt/2 bedrooms

2 bedrooms, one with a double bedy, and double sofabed/futon in the other

This cosy apartment has the BEST LOCATION in city center Reykjavik. Very safe and quiet neighborhood, in old but trendy houses, popular neighborhood in Reykjavík. Only 3 minutes walk to the main shopping street; Laugavegur.This apartment is very bright and cozy. It was renewed at large part in February 2013, with new beautiful floors, new bedroom cabinets, new painted walls, 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. it is also possible to add a small bed(A CRIB) for babies under 3 years old.

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

A nice swimming pool (also hot tubs)is at the next street corner, 3 min walk. 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. Supermarket is only 5 min walk away, open 9-23, at Laugavegur.

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.

A REALLY WONDERFUL STAY AT REYKJAVIK

  • 5 out of 5
To make it short: Uncomplicated delivery of the appartment (although in the middle of the night at 1:30 a.m.), actually we found what we expected: a very warmly and fully equipped appartment, cozy and clean. Helena (our "Landlady") was very helpful (@Helena: Thx for your help, in fact we found a hairdryer at Skeifan, obviously the best of the universe :-). Only a few short minutes to the main street and many restaurants. We spent a wonderful week with sunny days, stormy days, rainy days. We higly recommend this nice appartment and whenever we come back to Iceland for a visit, hopefully we are able to rent this appartment.

Best regards Susanne and Rainer

COMFORTABLE STAY IN A NICE QUIET LOCATION

  • 4 out of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this neat, comfortable and well-appointed apartment. The house is situated in a quiet central neighbourhood, close to shops (including the main downtown shopping street) an important bus hub (with regular busses to all quarters of Reykjavik) and the city’s only indoor swimming pool (like the others, served with warm geothermal water).

The apartment is nicely furnished, with modern bathroom fittings, a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable bedroom and high-speed wireless internet connection. The sitting room/dining room has a nice sofa which can be converted into an extra double bed if needed.

Helena, our host, provides excellent advice for visitors and is always available to assist if needed (not that we needed any extra help during our very pleasant stay). We have no hesitation in recommending this apartment… and would be very happy to return.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment is reasonably priced and situated in a great location for anyone wanting to see what Reykjavik and the surrounding region has to offer. Despite being only a 10-minute walk from the centre of town, we found the immediate neighbourhood to be peaceful and quiet at night. There's also a nearby supermarket and it's close to two major bus terminals - ideal for anyone not planning to drive during their stay. It made getting to the airport and out of town attractions like the Blue Lagoon really easy.

It's also worth noting that we arranged two excursions prior to flying out - a day trip around the Golden Circle and an evening drive to see the Northern Lights - and the organisers of both trips had no problem with finding the apartment and picking us up.

With just the two of us, we found the apartment itself to be clean and comfortable throughout our stay, with a well-equipped kitchen (microwave, hob/oven, large fridge freezer and coffee machine) and a reliable wireless internet connection. Owner Helena was very friendly and helpful upon our arrival. All in all, neither of us had any complaints at all, and we would gladly stay there again should we ever return to Reykjavik in future.

PERFECT HOLLIDAYS IN REYKJAVIK

  • 5 out of 5
We visit Reykjavik in late June early July and lived in Helenas apartment. We were very happy with our choice. Helen was a reliable and helpful host. She responded promptly to all our questions and the apartment was as described. Everything was in a very good condition and we felt very comfortable. The trip to Reykjavik was well worth it. We had great weather and we were there around mid-summer, we experienced 24 hours of brightness. We made the popular Golden Circle Tour, we did whale watching, a tour to Puffinisland and went to the Blue Lagoon. We saw beautiful scenery and enjoyed our week in Iceland very much. Geysers, waterfalls, glaciers and volcanoes, brilliantly simple. The rididing tour with Eldhestar was great, too. Our verdict: A trip to Iceland is worth it. It is one of the countries you have to see before you die. For runners, the track on the harbour is certainly right and absolute highlight. Helena's apartment is located supercentrally but also very quiet. It is an ideal starting point for many activities. The sleeping facilities, bed and couch, each of them is suitable for two persons. But i think, it could be a little bit difficult, when the two persons are very large. Since we were only two persons, this was not a problem. But even for 4 persons, the apartment is large enough, providing enough resting oppertunities and many amenities. We were happy every day, to come back for resting in Helenas beautiful apartment. So thumbs up for Iceland and the accommodation! We can recommend the apartment and will certainly come back. Many thanks to Helen for all the help.
