Car: Not Necessary

The location is ideal, with all the main restaurants, bars, clubs, shops, museums and other attractions of the city centre within a few minutes walking distance. Yet, the area is free from disturbance associated with the famous reykjavik night-life.

The main landmark hallgrimskirkja is within 5 minutes walking distance. Both the main bus terminal hlemmur and the main square lækjartorg are within 10 minutes walking distance in each direction.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

About: My name is Jon and i have been living in Reykjavik for over 20 years. Before that i lived in my old hometown of Akranes. I studied Computer Sciences at the University of Iceland and later did an MBA program at Reykjavik University. I currently work for the city of Reykjavik as Director of IT. I have rented this property to travellers since 2008 with great success. I live in the same building which allows me to respond quickly to any request my guests may have.

Why Old West Side, Reykjavík, Iceland:
This is a unique property and one of the few modern buildings in the central part of town. The location is ideal with all sights and attractions in the centre within walking distance and yet the area is relatively quiet.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Some of the unique benefits of this property include the spectacular view from the top floor in all directions. My guests are provided with a mobile phone with a local number as well as mobile WiFi hotspot which allows you to share your digital memories instantly, wherever you are. A private in-house parking space can be reserved during your stay. The apartment is equipped with an Apple TV, iPhone docking station, exceptionally large bath-tub and other amenities, all aimed at making your stay as convenient as possible.
