About the property

Bedroom with double bed, and livingroom with double sofabed and one single bed.

This beautiful and very comfortable apartment has the BEST LOCATION in city center Reykjavik.

This old beautiful house was build in 1938, and was completely renovated on the outside in spring 2017. Very safe and quiet neighborhood, in old trendy houses, popular neighborhood in Reykjavík. Only 4 minutes walk to the main shopping street; Laugavegur. This apartment is very bright and cozy. It was renewed at large part in February 2014, with new beautiful floors, new bedroom cabinets, 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 and one single bed.

Both rooms has a door to close, so it is actually 2 bedrooms. it is also possible to add a small bed(A CRIB) for babies under 3 years old.

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

A nice swimming pool (also hot tubs)is at the next street corner, 3 min walk.( it is now in repair and will open in october 2017)

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.

10-11 supermarket is only 5 min walk away, open 24hours, at Laugavegur.

Another bigger and cheaper supermarket called Bonus is also on Laugavegur,

8-10 minutes walk.

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.

Sight seeing bus is during summer, its a nice way to see Reykjavík in a 2hours bus-trip.

'Perlan' , the glass house we have on one of our pictures here.

On the top floor is a great restaurant, and actually the floor is turning while you sit and enjoy dinner, one circle per hour :)

And also there so many things to see, many day trips you can take with a bus from BSI.

For example Thingvellir, Blue lagoon, Gullfoss (waterfall) , Geysir and many more.....

Wonderful apartment, location, and host!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was a perfect base camp for our family of four during our recent trip to Iceland. Helena was lovely to book with, very responsive to questions before we arrived and made everything so welcoming for us, even with our very late night arrival! The apartment is located very centrally and everything in Reykjavik was an easy walk away. The apartment is very well equipped with everything you could need from coffee maker to towels and with a quick trip to the local Bonus we were set with groceries for the week. Thank you Helena for helping make our vacation so perfect!

Great apartment that is close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I loved our stay at Helena's apartment. It was exactly as pictured, was very comfy, clean, and conveniently located near the downtown and the BSI bus station.. Helena was very easy to get in touch with and happy to answer our questions. We would definitely stay here again!

Thanks so much!

Cute and Cozy Little Flat

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay and this cute and cozy little apartment. It's about a 10 minute walk from downtown, and about a 20 minute walk if you want to go all the way to the harbor area. The kitchen is stocked with some basic essentials and we really appreciated the coffee maker, coffee grounds and sugar! We shopped at a nearby grocery store (Kronan, a two minute drive away) and bought groceries for the week. It's so convenient to have a kitchen so you can prepare some simple meals and save lots of money since Reykjavik restaurants are very expensive. Helena made it very easy to check in and check out and overall we had a great stay and just a wonderful time in Iceland.

Very pleasant flat, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely flat just outside Reykjavik's main shopping district. The place was well equipped, including a splendid little kitchen with some very helpful supplies in the cupboards. You can walk to the centre of the city in ten minutes or so, and there is a bus station just around the corner for longer trips. There was some construction work at the front of the flat, but if you are out most of the day you will not really be troubled by this. Helena is an excellent host and very good at answering any questions you might have. Recommended!

Great hostess!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the downtown apartment but, as Helena had warned us, there was some home construction and we worried about the noise and dust. She offered to move us to another lovely apartment about 10 minutes out of downtown. Since we had a car, we did move. Both places were very nice, well equipped, and very clean. We probably should have stayed downtown for convenience (reading signposts in Iceland can be a challenge). It took us several tries to get home without getting lost, but the view from the out of town unit was over the city and very pretty. All in all a great experience and a very gracious hostess. Highly recommend!
