About This Listing
I offer a very nice room for 1-2 guests in the amazing city of Reykjavik.
The room is also available for longterm rent until May 2013 if you are an exchange student.
ROOM 1 is big and bright in a calm neighborhood. It has a double bed (165x200 cm). You can use my kitchen, washing machine, wifi and the bathroom with a bathtub and a toilet.
Towels and linens are provided upon arrival as well as some complementary extra such as coffee and tea.
The apartment is located in the more posh and old part of Reykjavik with a lot of large interesting architectural houses. The public bath, Vesturbæjarlaugin, is only two minutes walk from the house. There is also a grocery store "Melabúðin" beside the pool and it is open until 8 p.m. At the other side of the street is a drugstore. There are two bakeries and a popular ice cream shop within five minutes from the house. It is only 15 minutes walking distance to the center.

Enjoy your stay :)
We spent 4+ days in Iceland. It was our first visit there and our host Sesselja was kind and gracious to us. We felt very much at home and had comfortable surroundings. Her space is very close to the bay and a municipal pool the includes several hot tubs. There is a market two blocks away and we were able to buy food for breakfasts and lunches easily so that we could make some of our meals. We appreciated everything Sesselja provided to us.
We really enjoyed our stay with Sesselja. The room was clean and spacious and Sesselja was very helpful both in terms of advice regarding local facilities and in allowing us to use her washing machine. The house is close to city centre - about 10 minutes on foot. We would definitely recommend this accommodation.

Very pleasant, spacious house just 10 mins walk from Reykjavik city centre. Comfy bed in a big, light room. When we visited the shower was out of action, but we could use the bathtub, so that was fine. Sesselja is a very nice, unobtrusive host. We would definitely stay there again!
We liked our stay at Sesselja's beautiful home very much. She's a very kind and absolutely relaxed host and she gave us helpful information (including weather forecast) for making the best of our 10 days trip around Iceland. The neighbourhood is very quiet and Reykjavik city centre is in walking distance. No doubts, we would stay at Sesselja and her cute cat "Mia" again :-)
Walking distance to the center, nice place to stay. A relatively large and comfortable room. We enjoyed beeing in a real Islandic home and not in a hotel. Sesselja was a perfect host, helpful, smiling and friendly, always ready to give advice about places to visit in and around Reykjavik. She also told us where to eat the best lobster soup in the city. We can only recommend to stay at Sesselja's place! Margherita and Gerd
