About Roald Eyvindsson
Hello, my name is Roald Eyvindsson and Im from Iceland. I'm a journalist and an editor and at the moment I´m writing a book. Am into arts, travel, excercise and GOOD FOOD :).
Why Roald Eyvindsson chose Reykjavík 101
I've always dreamt of living in an old house in Reykjavik's city center - close to all the buzz. But at the same time I wanted a comfortable place to retreat to. I finally got my change when I found an old off street house, in an increasingly popular and vibrant area, and decided to buy and renovate it to meet modern standards. And now I'm a proud owner of my own little paradise.
What makes this House unique
The style, old age and history of the house made me fall in love with it. Not to mention the location, the neighbourhood is just great with all necessities and attractions close at hand. And the house has two balcanies, where I love to drink coffee in the summer.

Modern and warm
We had a nice stay at this property. The house is very bright and decorated with lots of nice touches. The bed was very comfortable and I loved the outdoor spaces. The location is prefect and close to several bus stops for tour pickups and shopping. I would recommend this home to family and friends!
Picture perfect property
This great place looks exactly as advertised, the location is ideal for walking the city & taking tours. The host was very responsive & accommodating - we e recommend this enjoying this lovely property!
Wonderful home - highly recommend!
This cute little property could not be in a better location! An easy walk from several bus stops, a block from the major shopping street (grocery and pharmacy all within 2 blocks), and easy access to walking Reykjavik. It is not directly on the street so allows for plenty of privacy. The property is adorable, clean, and well-appointed - the photos don't do it justice. The property owner could not have been more attentive or responsive to our needs - our plans changed unexpectedly and Roald was very understanding and accommodating. This was a perfect spot from which to enjoy Reykjavik! Thank you, Roald for being so flexible and working with us!!
Fantastic place to stay in Reykjavik
We had a great stay at Roald's place. It was our home away from home. The place is immaculate. Kitchen is very nice, with high quality appliances and having the spices and seasonings available was wonderful.
We had a family of 4 and the pull out couch and the extra bed downstairs was perfect. It is so convenient. The grocery store is a 5 minute walk and it is in the heart of downtown, walking distance to everything. We loved it and recommend this as a great place to stay!
Amazing place and location
We absolutely loved staying in Roald’s place. It was the PERFECT location. Close to shops and everything Reykjavík has to offer. The kitchen was very well stocked with all the spices etc you need so go to the house to see what’s there before going to the grocery store. Parking was a breeze and even though it’s metered street parking we always got a spot out front and we never even had to pay anything bc we were always out on adventures while the meters were running. The house was the perfect size for us and so cute! Can’t say enough good things and we’ll definitely stay again when in Reykjavik!!!
Perfect centralized location for exploring Reykjavik and surrounding areas. Home is set back behind another, making it a quiet location overall. (On Sunday, we loved hearing the carrillion bells from the Hallgrímskirkja.) Free parking could be found a few blocks away. Home is only one block away from a bakery and a grocery store. It is clean and well stocked for making your own meals. Enjoyed our stay here.
Whale watching, sailing, shops, antique stores, coffehouses, bars, discos, opera, music hall, galleries, library and a flea market all close by.
