Property description

The lovely apartment is all rather newly fully renovated and 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.
Six people will be very comfortable in the apartment, but there is enough sleeping space for seven 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 1 USD (150 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.
