About Berta Gudjons
I am born and bread in Iceland. A Yoga teacher and a mother of 3 children. I live part of the year in France . I love to be in Iceland as much as possible.

Why Berta Gudjons chose Reykjavík East
Great location both to explore what this beautiful city has to offer and for your drop-offs after your trips outside the city. Free parking if you have your own car. You will love the center of Reykjavik, so full of life and very creative. Being able to walk everywhere, easy shopping for food will not only save you money but a lot of time. Only few minute walk and you are by the sea overlooking the bay and our proud and joy the mountain ESJAN. You can easily jump on a bus if you want to go out of town. The bus station is only few meters away. In the apartment, I have created a cosy and warm home away from home. A place I love to stay my self when I am in Iceland. Our flat has the perfect location to enjoy everything the city has to offer. This area is on the edge of postal code 101 the most-central area/postal code of the city.It will give you the opportunity to walk to everywhere and still be in a comfortable distance from the party zone and night life area. Grocery shops just few m away open 24/7 . Free parking at the back of the building Reykjavik is an extremely nice city full of culture, good restaurants and sights - and close to wonderful nature. The city's populations is small (only 122.000 in the city itself, 202.000 in the metropolitan area), but as an European capital there is a lot going on within and around the city. Saying in a walking distance from many of Reykjavik's best known landmarks, museums and restaurants. The harbor with its great view, seafood restaurant, micro-brewery, bars and cafe's is 15 min walk. In the harbor/port area you can also take the ferry out to Viðey island, do various sightseeing tours on boat and and go whale watching. There are good walking & running paths that go from our neighborhood along Reykjavik's beautiful shoreline. One path takes you out of the city to the Grótta lighthouse and another through the city (by Harpa Concert House) and so much more..

Amazing location and great place!
We loved all of Berta’s suggestions! The place is super convenient to everything and has some parking (street) very available if you rent a car. The place is cute and has all you need. Owner is super friendly and responsive!
You were amazing guests, so happy to hear that you you like our condo in the center , I hope you come again for some Northern light display next time :-)
Just what we expected.
Very helpful owner advice
Perfectly situated for walking to museums and the harbor for boat trip (20 min walk) in nice pedestrian friendly area. We rented a car but only needed to drive to far away places. The apartment was great as we were able to make meals there and that reduced overall costs as Reykjavík can be an expensive place to eat out 3 times a day. We had a lovely time and comfortably fit 2 adults and 2 kids in apartment. The TV is set up with Chrome cast so bring Netflix or Prime device to watch shows or movies. The only con was the floor in the apartment was pretty dirty and taking off shoes left black feet and or socks. The kitchen and bath were tidy and fine, and overall the apartment was clean, but it’s a 1st floor flat in the city so keep that in mind and maybe pack some flip flops or slippers. The convenience and location were perfect and owner was very nice and accommodating with our arrival and departure times. I would definitely stay there again. It was a good value and I loved the location.
Thank Mary for your kind and generous review, yes 4 people walking in straight from the street the floor gets easily dirty, so great idea to have slippers. Thank for being great guests. always welcome again. regards B
GREAT Location, ADORABLE Flat
My husband and I spontaneously decided to take a trip to Iceland 3 weeks prior to going. We were looking for something clean, cute, and perfectly located in the heart of the city. This modern style flat is located perfectly on the main strip of Reykjavik, tons of food, bars, and shops. You're just a short walk away from the water and amazing views. The food hall is right beside the flat which is where we spent many nights winding down with a glass of wine or local beer at one of the cozy bars inside. No car is needed due to being located near all the day/night life and when it came time to explore the natural sights Iceland has to offer, we were just a block away from multiple bus stops.
Berta was an amazing host, she offered SOO much advice and tips and available every time I had a question leading up to our stay. Those of you who are reading this trying to find the perfect location to make the most of your trip, this is the perfect spot for you!
THANK you Cassandra what a great review for us and for other guests. Thank you for being so positive and pleasant. You are every hosts dream guests, always welcome back . Regards Berta

What makes Iceland stand out as a venue is its unique natural beauty and absence of pollution. Dramatic volcano and glacier scenery-and conversely, action packed incentives are there waiting to be enjoyed by visitors. Reykjavík, the capital city is next door to nature. Iceland is only about a 3-hour flight from most European cities and 5 hours from the North American.
Other Activities: Family Park in Laugardalur is just 10 min. walk
Golf: Iceland not entirely white, it’s greener than you think.
People always say those Vikings were pulling a fast one when they called us Iceland and not Greenland but now we have even greater reason than ever to be called Green Iceland! Over 70% of our total energy consumption is from hydro- and geothermal sources and Reykjavik was the site for the world’s first commercial hydrogen refuelling station, opened in 2003.
Continually looking for the next big thing, we are extending Iceland’s green credentials from land to water, with Reykjavik whale-watching company - ‘Elding – adventure at sea’ unveiling the first commercial vessel to trial the use of hydrogen in April. Shame it isn’t helium, we could have had some macho sailors with high- pitched voices.
Ski: Hiking n Iceland
The Hengill/Nesjavellir area in South Iceland is an outdoor sports paradise, with a variety of 160 km of marked and challenging hiking and biking trails in a region of high-temperature geothermal areas, hot springs, volcanic craters, lava fields, rivers and lakes. Besides hiking and mountain biking, you can also go fishing on Lake Þingvallavatn (Iceland's largest lake), visit Þingvellir National Park, tour the Hengill geothermal power plant and go horseback riding
