Fabulous well equipped flat right in the heart of Reykjavik

5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay here, more than enough space for a set of parents, grandparents and teenager. (Teenager particularly appreciated the Wi-Fi!). We cooked most of our meals here and found the kitchen well equipped. It is very expensive to eat out in Iceland. The flat is close to the shops and walking distance from several museums. Local supermarket (Bonus) is a short walk. I can thoroughly recommended the accommodation and Reykjavik as a holiday destination. Hire a car and drive out of the city to see more of Iceland.
