Charming & Comfortable Reykjavik Stay - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Edda's condo was a comfortable place to stay for myself, wife & stepdaughter. Two bedrooms upstairs and roomy living room & kitchen to enjoy while staying in Reykjavik. The location of the condo was perfectly located walking distance to the Sun Voyager, Harpa, Hallgrimskirkja and the main street Laugavegur. Almost everything in town is within walking distance. It is near a lot of bus stops too. The bakery downstairs is really nice and convenient, offering some nice pastries and breads. We met with Edda's mom Maria who provided us with a local treat which we could have with coffee, which we enjoyed every morning. Thank you!

Great Location, Great Space

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of four (my husband and I, and two 18 year old girls). The apartment was easy to access and worked really well for us. Minutes away via walking to the main shopping street, Laugavegur, and to the happening area of bars and restaurants off of Laekjargata. It is a 5 minute walk to both the Harpa Concert Hall and the Sun Voyager sculpture located on the waterfront.

The beds were very comfortable and there were ample towels for all of us. The kitchen had everything you could need. My only suggestion would be to add a very small microwave. There are some staple supplies that have been left by other renters which really helped out.

There is a bakery just down the stairs on the waterfront where we were able to pick up supplies for breakfast every morning and to get supplies for our daily road trips. We augmented this by fruit and treats from the grocery store which we visited on the day of our arrival.

We were fortunate that we were able to park in a visitor spot every day but one. There is plenty of parking across the street and we used it for one night which is free in the night hours.

Check in and out is a breeze. There is an elevator to take you to the apartment. Edda recommended that we bring reusable water containers/bottles to save buying expensive bottled water which we did. The tap water is great tasting.

I would definitely rent this apartment again. We fell in love with Iceland and wish to return again.

We had everything we needed - soap, towels, etc. and a beautiful view of the water too! Maria was very accommodating and had a list of local restaurants in the apt.

Lovely duplex in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Reykjavik is not a huge city, but it was important for us (having never been there before) to be centrally located so that we could easily explore the city as well as be near pickup spots for day tours. Edda's apartment was perfect! So nice to have the two floors for the 4 of us to spread out a bit. Our 2 teenage sons stayed in one bedroom (they are the king-type beds that are like two twins put together, each with their own duvet) and we had the other room. Edda and her mom gave us lots of great information and were super accommodating with check-in as our flight arrived quite late. Thank you!

The apartment is furnished simply and attractively with fabulous light as it is situated on the top floor--wonderful views (water views from one bedroom!). Very clean and well-equipped. Our first morning we made a quick trip to the Bonus store (small grocery store) and outfitted ourselves for breakfasts and snacks in the apartment. Our only suggestion would be to install some hooks in the bathroom for wet towels to dry. Also, the lip on the floor around the shower is very shallow and hard to keep the water from the shower from spraying out into the bathroom. With 4 people using one bathroom it would help. We had a SUPER time there and would love to visit again. Takk! (thank you in Icelandic)
