Reykjavik cottage description

Our house is a traditional Icelandic cottage and is situated in the charming historic center of Reykjavik.

The apartment has two floors. Upstairs there is a spacious master bedroom with a queen-size bed and a large closet. The bedroom has a south facing balcony. The bathroom is upstairs and has a shower and a jacuzzi-style bathtub.

The downstairs has a bright living area with a convertible sofa, dining table, and a full open kitchen. The living area opens out to a south facing balcony as well.

The apartment sleeps 2-4 people comfortably. Towels and linen are provided. The stairs up to the bedroom and bath are quite steep so the place is not suitable for small children.

Enjoy staying in a typical Icelandic cottage, steps away from great restaurants, museums, shopping, and the harbor area with its Puffin express and whale watching tours.
