Grand apartment Reykjavik City Center

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,194 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

Welcome to our apartment of 111m² in the center of Reykjavík. Everything is within walking distance: bars, restaurants, tours, museums, harbor, etc. All the tour operators' buses, the Flybus that goes to the airport or the central bus station, stop just below the apartment, a few meters to the right. The apartment has just been renovated and redecorated. It sleeps up to 5 people: a bed of 190/200 and a single bed in the master bedroom, a 150/200 bed in the small bedroom + sofa bed in the lounge. It's a charming place, bright, friendly and ideally located in the heart of the city. The apartment dates from 1910 and is typical of the Icelandic architecture of this time. It is an old and very authentic place. You'll find a covered and secure parking at 30 m.

The minimum duration of a stay with us is 4 nights.

Discover Icelandic spirit and fun!

Excessive noise and parties are strictly forbidden in the apartment. The house is old and neighbors need to sleep. We also ask you to remove your shoes to avoid excessive noise. It is also an Icelandic tradition. There is no curtain in the living room for a reason of light that is important to capture in Reykjavík. Nobody sleeps in the living room anyway. By cons against the curtains of the rooms are thick. Volcanoes can bring a lot of dust to the windows and the apartment if you leave the windows open. Do not worry because the rain cleans them regularly.

You must leave the apartment in the clean state where you found it:

- Clean the bathroom and the kitchen

- Vacuum and wipe off dust

- Remove the used sheets and leave them in a ball in the entrance.

Thank you

Great flat in the heart of the city

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here (a family of 5) and it was perfect. The location was great - we could walk everywhere in the city very easily. It had everything we needed with just the right amount of space. We would definitely stay here again on our next visit to Iceland!!

Adorable, spacious apartment in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was terrific for our party of four. Fantastic location with good parking and easy access to restaurants. I had only one complaint and that was about supplies. Apparently we needed to supply our own toilet paper and dish soap...for our stay, and for the next guests. I’ve never had that before and I have traveled extensively in Europe and the US. Other than that, everything was great!!

Exactly as expected

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is very centrally located close to bars, shops, restaurants etc. There is a bus stop right outside that we were able to schedule most of our tours to pick us up at which was extremely convenient. Seeing as it is downtown, it can get a little loud at night once the bars let out but overall is a great landing spot right downtown.

Great location for city activity, charming and comfortable, (though not luxurious)

  • 4 of 5

Lovely second floor location with a lot of character, just steps away from restaurants, shopping and cultural sites. Affordable, covered parking is half a block away if you rent a car. The bedding was cozy. It is a clean but older building so the stairwell is tight, and the doors can be sticky. There is a basic kitchen (no microwave) and there are a few grocery stores just blocks away but I believe the prices are better if you shop outside the downtown. The first night (a Sunday in July) we could hear music from a nearby venue and cars on the street but it didn't bother us after that. We didn't use the provided clothes washer. The shower has plentiful hot water that can smell sulfuric, but that comes with being on an island with volcanic activity. Running the cold tap can help clear the smell to make drinking water more palatable if it bothers you. The drains may run slowly, but they run. If you want alcohol, purchase duty free at the airport. Our host was great about responding to questions. Volcanic dust may be present on the exterior of windows (a rainy day washed off the windows on one side of the apartment for us and made a big difference.) It was fun to watch people walking by on the street and be able to step out and look around without having to drive or walk long distances. We saved our energy for hikes out in the countryside. I would stay here again!

Nice spacious flat that is one block way from center of town

  • 4 of 5

Spacious and comfortable flat for my family of five. Bright living room, hard wood floors throughout, and large table in main living space. Could use a few more seating options in the living room and blackout curtains in bedrooms. Overall, a nice place to stay in city center. One block from the main street and a few blocks to shore. We enjoyed our stay and hope to come back to Iceland in the future!
