The Space

A beautiful, bright and spacious 130 m2 - 1292 sf2 penthouse-loft in a very nice residential area in downtown Reykjavík. Newly rebuilt and renovated, with the idea of making a penthouse apartment with the distribution of a loft, keeping the space clear of any rooms other then the bedroom and bathroom. The apartment divides into one open space where you find living room, kitchen, dinning room and TV area and one bedroom and bathroom with very nice sky windows. The kitchen is fully equiped with a big round window where you can f.ex. enjoy great views of one of our most famous churches, Hallgrímskirkja. 20 m2 balcony facing south with incredible views of the city, very nice both during the bright summer days and nights as well as during winter.

The main bus station is just 10 min away as well as the main shopping and restaurant area.

Very well located to get to all the most interesting sites in Reykjavík.

  • Great appartment, can fully recommend!

  • The penthouse apartment was exactly as it was shown in the pictures. Getting the keys was easy. The apartment is in a wonderful location in the central district in a quiet neighborhood. The apartment was clean, spacious, and comfortable. We could not ask for anything better for our stay!

    Thanks Gna for being such a gracious host.

  • Gna' apartment is simply spectacular. The location, the space inside, the interiors, the view from the apt (the church on one side and the airport on the other side) are all just amazing. The city centre, other major landmarks, restaurants, cafés, supermarkets, the main bus station are all a short walk away. Though we didn't meet her in person, Gna was prompt pleasant and helpful. We enjoyed our stay here immensely and really sorry when we had to leave. I want to add that though the airport runway is visible we did not experience any noise or (website hidden). I did count the number of light fittings - 32.

  • Gna's place is really awesome! We came with the bus from the airport. From the bus terminal it's only a 5 minute walk to the apartment. The apartment is really spacious, the interior is interesting (In a positive way! Try to count all lamps!) and the view is stunning.
    It's a short walk to the famous Hallgrímskirkja and the shopping/nightlife area.
    I can absolutely recommend this apartment.

  • We loved staying at Gna's penthouse. It was beautifully decorated as shown in the pictures, and had a great view from the balcony. Gna was awesome, too. She was quick to respond any emails, and easy to talk to. She let us know that airport had a strike the day we were coming back, so we checked and sure enough our flight was delayed. We used the time to enjoy more of Reykjavik with our little baby, and she even let us check out way later than the usual time, which was super helpful with a one-year-old on the tow. If I am ever in town again, or anyone I know is going, Gna's place will be the place to stay.
    Thank you, Gna!

  • There isn't much to add to all the positive feedback from the other guests. Lovely apartment and beautifully furnished. Felt like home. Ideally located to explore Reykjavik by foot. Car rental nearby. I would always recommend staying at her place.

  • Gna was a fantastic host with literally the most beautiful apartment I've ever laid eyes on! Seriously! This is a well designed but comfortable place to stay. If you're going to visit Reykjavik, you should make this your choice! Her apartment is conveniently located just a short walk from the bus station (where you can catch the bus to the Blue Lagoon) and the main shopping & eating district.

    Gna responded promptly and was a great host. Thank you for everything!

    Be warned: this apartment does not show up in the right location on (website hidden) Maps!

  • What a gorgeous spot in a magical country!! Everything was wonderful, clean and comfortable. The design and layout is stunning. When the sun rose at 10:30 am the apartment filled up with the most beautiful golden light. Some days we just wanted to "stay home" but there was so much to do and see nearby. The location is excellent...just a short walk to everything. Very quiet and perfect for a good nights sleep after a long day of exploring!

    Gna was a pleasure to work with! Will definitely go back!

  • What a tremendous apartment. Great location, beautifully furnished, and has a well-equipped kitchen. Gna was a great host and checked in on us via email to make sure everything was ok. I would highly recommend the place.

    Note that (website hidden) Maps has the location incorrect. The house is down at the end of the street where it hooks around to Laufásvegur.
