Overview

About the property

An 80m² Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, fantastic Sleeps Up To 6

ATT Please contact me before trying to book.

The lovely apartment includes all the equipment needed to make you feel right at home. The apartment has 2 bedrooms, one equipped with a queen size bed (140cm x 200cm) and the other with two single beds (90cm x 200cm). There is a sofa and a sleeping couch in the living/dining room.

Five people will be very comfortable in the apartment, but there is enough sleeping space for five adults and one child as there is additionally a single roll-away bed for an adult and one travel bed for a child, both of quality.

In the kitchen there is among other kitchen tool necessities - a dishwasher, stove, microwave, fridge/freezer, and tableware for 8 persons, coffee machine and a sink.

In the bathroom there is a bath-tub with a shower, a washer and a dryer as well as soaps, WC-paper, and towels.

The apartment is baby safe and comes with a stroller, travel bed, high baby chair, some plastic dishes, glasses and bowls, and a toy-box.

On addition it has bed linen, some books, board games, a high speed internet access and TV that are included.

The apartment is on the 1st floor/ground floor; outside there is a nice garden with a gas-barbecue, an outside bench and a table for you to enjoy the weather and a nice dinner.

Though the apartment is in the heart and center of down town Reykjavík the house is hidden in between two streets and therefore has no street noise or any disturbances from the vibrant night live resulting from the apartment being located in Reykjavik´s lively downtown area. Within 1-4 minutes walking distance you will find very good restaurants, cafés, museums, a cinema, galleries, a theater, a public library and an indoor/outdoor swimming pool.

Here you are in the heart of Reykjavik and on the next street you find Laugarvegur which is the main shopping street in down town Reykjavík that has a good but low cost grocery store. The name of the street this apartment is on is Grettisgata and if you walk a minute in the other direction from Laugarvegur you shortly come to Skólavörðustíg, a beautiful arty street full of culture and good food, and in a few minutes of strolling you arrive at Hallgrimskirkja; the tallest church in Iceland. The church is a great landmark and is visible from all over Reykjavik.

Being Reykjavík's main street, parking at Laugavegur (and the closest streets surrounding it) are not free on business hours, and it will cost about 2 USD (250 krona) per hour.

As the apartment is located in the very heart of Reykjavík, in 30-40 minutes of easy walk you can get to most places in the city.

The bus from the airport drops you off in BSI, the main bus and taxi station, a 10-15 minute walk from the apartment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed in Hrannar's place earlier this summer with my wife, our two year-old son, and my wife's parents. The apartment was fantastic - comfortable, clean, large, and perfectly located in Reykjavik. I really can't say enough about the location- within easy walking distance of almost everything in the city, during the day and night both. We had an amazing time.

Close in and comfy

  • 5 of 5

The stay was marvelous. Dora met us at the house and gave an extensive tour of everything and was available by phone when we had a few questions. It is decorated extensively although if there is a toddler (as we had) a few things might need to be moved. The directions to the house were excellent and the stores are less than a block away and there is a dangerously wonderful bakery around the corner. Parking on the street is expensive but there is a garage that is much less expensive about 6 blocks away and free parking near the church about 3-4 blocks away. If one is not planning to travel outside Reykjavik I think a car would not be needed.

Great location, good price

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is comfortable, it accommodated five of us with no problem. It has every thing one might need for the stay. We used it as a home base and traveled all over Iceland.

It is within a walking distance from all the important landmarks in Reykjavik. The neighborhood where it is located is very lively and has many shops and restaurants.

The owners were very helpful, and did answer all our questions and responded promptly.

Also finding a parking spot on the street was not a problem at all.

For the price you will not find a better place.

Surely a great location to stay near downtown

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 5 days in this house with 2 kids. Its perfect location near downtown. main street is just 1 block away. Never had any issue on the paid street parking. Its always available.

Going from America, we have had some issues in operating washer/Dryer since their setup was different. But Owner was quick enough to answer all the questions via whatsapp chat. this house is perfect for a family of 4 people..

Perfect location to discover Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a minute walk away from the main commercial street of Reykjavik and within walking distance of most of the things you want to see but at the same time is very quiet. It is a great spot. Nothing fancy inside but is does the job well. The owner was very helpful with some logistic details and very quick to respond to any request. Highly recommended.
