Our apartment has two bedrooms, the master bedroom has King size bed, the second bedroom has queen size bed. In the living room we have very nice sleeping sofa, we can also place foldable single bed in the living room if needed. The apartment and the whole building was recently renovated. We have private parking outside / under the building. If you planning on taking tours then bus stop number 8 is just across the street next to the church Hallgrimskirkja.

Our apartment is located right in front of one of the most popular landmarks Reykjavik, the church Hallgrimskirkja. Einar Jonsson Sculpture Museum is also just few meters away. Skólavörðustígur is just around the corner, there you find small grocery store called Krambúðin and its open 24/7, Boutique stores, Restaurants and Bars. After you walk down Skólavörðustígur for like 5-600 meters then you are at our Main Street Laugavegur. So everything that Reykjavik has to offer is in walking distance from our apartment.

Great Spacious, Clean and Comfortable Flat in Superb Location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for several nights. The place is very fresh and comfortable. Laundry and parking in the building is nice too. The Landlord was very easy to reach as well. Comfortable beds with nice closets so you don't have to work out of your suitcase. The Flat is awesome but the location was even better. Great eateries and places to have coffee or alcohol are just a minute walk away. The streets around the Flat are also pretty quiet. We did not have loud noise or loud passersby disturbing us in the night. I give it an A+

Lovely location; lovely space

  • 5 of 5

Four travelers – two couples - enjoyed this comfortable 2-bedroom apartment just across the street from Hallgrimskirkja - no matter where you are in Reykjavik, you have a beacon to find your way home. The apartment had all the amenities one needed as a base for exploring colorful Reykjavik and its many museums, coffee shops and restaurants, the harbor, Harpa Hall, etc. We became steady customers of the Brauð bakery just down the street with the best croissants outside Paris, and the cinnamon rolls etc. also kept us coming back daily. There’s a 24-hour market around the corner in case you need to pick up some emergency coffee creamer, but with Reykjavik Roasters on the way to the bakery – and so many other coffee shops in Reykjavik – maybe it’s something else you need.

From Reykjavik it's an easy drive to author Harold Laxness home/museum, Gljufrasteinn, and on to the Golden Circle with Geysir geothermal area, the waterfall Gullfoss, and the UNESCO site Þingvellir National Park. Also a picturesque and easy drive south to Vik and the Black Sand Beach featuring breathtaking basalt columns, lava formations, towering cliffs, and caves. Borgarnes is an easy drive to the north, with a wonderful museum and café and near Borgarnes is an easy hike up to Grabrokargigar volcano craters and Gonguleidir waterfall.

An excellent choice for location and for comfort.

Nice apartment. Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Traveling to England via Icelandair, my family and I took advantage of the free stopover of up to 7 days. As time was short we decided on a quick 24 hour stopover in the capital of Reykjavik. After a bit of looking at places that were available, we decided on one of the properties owed by Kjartan. Email communication with Kjartan was easy and he answered our many questions about this property and the town in general. As time was limited we elected to have Kjartan pick us up at the airport for the drive into town. As a side note, the airport is located in the town of Keflavik which is about 45 minutes from Reykjavik. The airport is also currently being renovated, so things there are somewhat chaotic. On the drive in you can really appreciate the treeless windswept landscape. Kjartan gave us a quick tour around that was very helpful to get us oriented to the area.

The property is centrally located with the large Hallgrimskirkja church diagonally across from the apartment. Across the us is a small walled sculpture garden attached to a museum that is a great place for a quiet respite from the noise of traveling. A very short walk will take you to Cafe Loki where you can indulge in Icelandic dishes and wonderful sampler platters. Around the corner is the Krambo 24, a little store with all the groceries you will need for your stay. The area around the property is filled with pubs, restaurants and shops. The area has a wonderful vibe to it and it is great for walking around as long as you don't mind walking uphill to get back to the apartment. Because of the properties' great location, if lost all you do is walk uphill to the church and there you are.

The apartment is exactly as depicted in the website pictures. The mattresses were comfortable and even the sofa bed was ok as far as sofa beds go. The hot water had very slight sulfur smell, but that was not unpleasant. This is a result of the country's use of geothermal energy for hot water and heating. The cold water was wonderful and is said to be among the purest in world.

On a practical note, credit cards are accepted almost everywhere and English is widely spoken. This was a good thing for us as while the language of Iceland is beautiful to hear, I believe trying to speak it would break my tongue.

In closing, I want to say again that both this property and Kjartan were great. As a result, we are already planning a longer return next year to this amazing property and country!

fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a fantastic location, at the top of the main town centre area. It is walking distance also to the bus terminal where you can take all kinds of excursions and hire a car. The property was clean, warm and comfortable. The owner was helpful and replied to queries promptly. We would stay here again.

Beautiful apartment, very pleasant management team and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this property was wonderful! Very beautiful apartment and Kjartan and his team were very communicative, check-in was very smooth and response time to questions was very quick. The apartment is very close to all the great shopping, food and even a small little convenience store to get snacks/breakfast foods/etc. Highly recommend this property!

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable apartment in a great location. Apartment is nicely furnished and everything was in great condition. Loved the heated towel bar in the bathroom. Extra towels readily available in the hallway storage units. There is a cafe right next door and a small grocery store around the corner. Easy walking distance to the main street where all the shops are located. Bus stop 8 is just across the road at the church and there are WOW rental bikes just out front.
