Why Sveinn Kjartansson chose Downtown

Cozy Studio is very spacious for a studio and is in a very quiet area even though it takes you only 2-3 min. to walk to the centre square. There is no street traffic outside the house and only one family lives in the building.

What makes this Studio unique

In the middle of everything, restaurants, the old harbor where you get whale watching, museums, tourist info etc.

                                                          cozy place in the heart of the city

                                                          Andrea P.

                                                          This place was lovely. Comfortable bed, high ceilings for a basement unit, and good water pressure in the shower. It really was a cozy spot to come home to after being out in the wind all day. Close enough to the shopping and restaurants and tour pickup sites that you can walk everywhere, but tucked away so you don't get the noise.

                                                          The space was comfortable and easy to get to. Close to the harbor and downtown, and Sveinn was very responsive.

                                                          Hi Susan and thank you so much for choosing Cozy Studio. Also thank you for taking the time to write this review. We could not agree more on the location and we are very glad to hear that you thought Cozy is comfortable which is what we look for when travelling ourselves. We hope to see you again in the future. Warm regards from Iceland.

                                                          Cozy and convenient

                                                          S.E. B.

                                                          We enjoyed our stay and the convenient location. At the end of a 30 day itinerary through 5 countries this was our 10th accommodation which we found to be quite comfortable. Instructions for parking and how to enter the apartment were easy to follow. It is close to a small grocery store, many restaurants and local attractions. Should our travels bring us back to Iceland, we certainly enjoy staying here again.

                                                          So cute and cozy!

                                                          Best location! Near every place you want to be and the host is super cool too! I am seriously excited to plan my next trip so I can stay there again! It literally has everything you need to have the best time in Iceland :) thank you cozy apartment Reykjavik!

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and the location which we think can not be beaten because it's so quiet and cozy just like a small village of beautiful old houses in the middle of Reykjavik old centre. Thank you also for the gift which we are still enjoying, you are too kind. It would be so nice to have you back with us so just contact us when you start planning your next trip to Iceland.

                                                          Warm regards from Iceland,


                                                          Nice cozy place in a great location

                                                          Jason B.

                                                          We had a great stay here. Located conveniently and just as it was described. My only suggestion is to make parking options clear as we parked our car in a place where apparently others don't usually park and once others parked too, we ended up blocking someone in accidentally. Not the owner's fault but just making parking options clear might help others in the future. Overall though I recommend it if you need a close place to stay in town.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Hi again and thank you so much for the review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Cozy Studio and welcome you back any time.

                                                          I'm sorry to hear that you got confused with the parking in the courtyard. This is actually the first time in 9 years we experience this issue but if our guests are unsure they are welcome to park in our private driveway to avoid situations like the one you had. I agree with you that this is not ours or your fault in any way but we are happy to rewrite our apartment information which is available in the apartment to include a diagram to show the angled parking on the right side.

                                                          Thank you again for choosing Cozy Studio and we hope to see you again someday.

                                                          Comfort and convenience!

                                                          This is a great place to stay! The apartment is clean, well appointed and right in the middle of historic Reykjavik, which means restaurants, bars, museums and shopping are within easy walking distance. We couldn't have asked for a better location. The owner couldn't be nicer or the parking easier, although care is needed to negotiate the tunnel entrance. Would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to stay and relax in Reykjavik. My only Iceland regret is that we didn't stay here longer.
