A lovely start to our vacation

  • 5 of 5

Accommodating host; convenient, pretty location and thoughtful, charming decor. Comfortable beds and bedclothes, street and drive parking and WASHER AND DRYER! These are at a premium in Reykjavik. (They also work a bit differently from those in the US, especially the dryer, which, in this case, collects excess water and must be emptied rather than just venting damp air outside.) As of this writing, there are no dedicated self-serve laundromats in Reykjavik. There are four washers and dryers at the Laundromat Cafe downtown and some at the City Hostel.

The only caveat is that, at the time of this writing, it seemed clear that the apartment below had a smoker in it, and we are non-smokers. The entry smelled like cigarettes, as did the laundry room. The odor did not seem to permeate either this apartment or our laundry, though, so it ended up not mattering much at all.

Lovely in central location

  • 5 of 5

This is a large apartment very close to the city center. It has everything you would need and was spotless when we arrived. Kjartan is very responsive with questions and will take you to and from the airport for a competitive fee.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable apartment. Lots of restaurants and things to do within walking distance. Apartment is located in the downtown center of Reykjavik, along side a tall church, impossible to get lost! Kjartan is a great host and is very helpful, knows the city well. We would stay here again.

Perfect place for us!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this apartment during our week-long stay in Reykjavik. It's location, in a quiet neighborhood, is within walking distance of everything in town so we easily could get to all the restaurants, shops, museums and sites. There is an amazing bakery just a few blocks away as well as wonderful coffee shops. There is a grocery store nearby for the basics. The neighborhood is lovely and we had a view of the iconic Hallgrímskirkja church out the kitchen window. The apartment is well appointed, had all the kitchen things that we needed, and good wifi. There is a washing machine and dryer for clothes, which was really important for us. Kjartan was great to work with and very responsive. We rented a car for a couple of days and there was private parking at the apartment that we could use. I highly recommend this apartment and would stay there again.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure having met Kjartan; he picked me up from the bus station because it was a bit rainy. The station is maybe an 8-minute walk. The apartment was so central to everything you can ask for: two blocks from the church and a market with great pastries, downtown was just a skip away and tour pick-up location less than two blocks away (if tour doesn't pick you up at the apt.). Nice having a responsive host. Thanks, KD!

Wonderful Apartment, Warm and Inviting Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 adult kids) stayed at Sjafnargata 8 over the Christmas holidays. The apartment offers everything one could need: fully equipped kitchen, exceptionally comfortable master BR, large dining table, roomy bathroom and nice big windows from which we could enjoy the snowy wintry weather. The location is ideal - on a quiet street but near all of the city attractions. It was such a treat to walk through the Einar Jónsson Sculpture Garden on our way back to the apartment every day. We did not need a car at all. Our host Kjartan was so very accommodating. He responded quickly and thoroughly during our planning process. For a very reasonable fee, he picked us up from, and dropped us off at the airport. When there was a hitch with the microwave, he ran out and bought a new one - on Christmas eve (honestly, thank you for that Kjartan!) All in all, one of our favorite trips.
