Three bedroom apartment in the heart of Reykjavik city on the second floor of a small and well maintained apartment building. Shower and a jacuzzi, washer and dryer, king size bed and a queen size bed. Third bedroom has a single size bed.
Free wireless internet and beautiful tropical fish tank.
Towels are provided. Just add soap. It also comes with linens and a hairdryer.
The apartment is just steps away from cafes, restaurants, playground, museums, whale watching boats, nightlife, library, parliament, and gift shops.
It is located in the oldest part of Reykjavik, on the outskirt of a charming and quiet little neighborhood called Grjotathorp (Stone village). The first settlers of the country actually built their houses just a stone throw away.
The FlyBus+ from the airport usually stops right outside the house. Just show the driver the address and he will be able to tell you wether he can let you off there or at the nearest hotel or guesthouse, just steps away.
Transportation of all sorts is very close, as this is the down town area. Taxis, buses or the sightseeing tours. A tourist information center is located around the corner.
It is very easy to find a street parking by the house or near the house. The cost is $10 for a full day. Metering times are from 10am to 6pm weekdays, 1pm to 4pm on Saturdays. Sundays are free.
There are two "7-11" grocery stores within few minutes walk from the apartment.
"The apartment has all the comforts of home combined with a great location" as one of our guests put it.
Orri was a fantastic host and the flat is amazing. Really comfortable, large, well equipped and super central. There is a fantastic video and book library too. Five stars!
We stayed here for 3 nights and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The apartment was very clean and stylish. The location is fantastic, right in the heart of Reykjavic. There is also a great range of DVDs to watch if you fancy a quiet night in plus all the facilities you could ask for (dishwasher, comfortable seating, comfortable beds etc.).
I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to my friends and family.
Perfect location, perfect amenities, perfect owner!!!. Orri is very responsive and had arranged/organized everything we need in his apartment. Moreover, the collection of books (religion, art movies, philosophies, myth/lengeds) and art movies was a big plus. Jst sitting in his apartmennt and watching the art movies and reading his books on an off-day was even worth more than wandering around Reykjavik.
I would recommend anyone and everyone to stay at Orri's apartment. Very convenient and very comfortable. Orri's apartment is a must stay place in Reykjavik.!!!
Orri's apartment was ideal for our family of 4 with small children. We echo all of the positive reviews- beautiful apartment and perfect location in downtown Reykjavik. A great balance of comfort, convenience, and luxury. Our kids especially enjoyed the fish tank, toys, books and space to play. Orri was a perfect host- attentive, communicative, and accommodating to our schedule. We highly recommend it for your stay in Iceland!
We had a wonderful stay in Orri's apartment !
It's well located (close to recommended restaurants, cafés...), very spacious and perfectly equipped (we fell in love with the jacuzzi and the coffee machine) ! Concerning Orri, he was a perfect "host" : very nice, available and helpful. He sent us a set of keys a few weeks before our trip, so we didn't have worry about that. His "house manual" answers every question you can ask yourself ! All of this was really appreciated ! We would highly recommend Orri and his apartment to sublimate your trip to Reykjavik !
We stayed here in December for 5 nights and it was absolutely wonderful. The room is well heated and beds are all comfortable. It was very very spacious for 4 of us. You can easily fit another 4 if someone wants to sleep on the sofa! Location is great. You are literally within 5 mins walk to at least 5 top 10 rated restaurants on trip advisor. We used Center Hotel Plaza (a 2 mins walk) as our major pick-up / drop-off location for all the tours. The photos are exactly what they look like. I want to go back to Iceland again in the summer and I would definitely stay here again.
Orri's apartment is beautiful and spacious. It's very centrally located - right in the heart of Reykjavik (around the corner from the delicious restaurant Fish Market, and just a few blocks away from the famous Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur!).
It was Orri himself that really elevated our stay, though. He was incredibly responsive, and very proactive -- outlining everything we needed to know in a very helpful house manual.
I would happily recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Iceland.
Thank you, Orri!!
We have had a wonderful time at the Chic Downtown apartment.
The apartment is centrally located, spacious but at the same time cosy and very welcoming. Every little detail has been well thought of by the owner.
I was impressed by the big selection of videos on offer should you fancy a night in relaxing on the sofa.
The host Orri has a wicked sense of humour and has been very responsive throughout our stay.
I highly recommend this place!
Fabulous apartment with all you could need included. Very close to the centre and well maintained
We had an excellent stay in Orri's apartment! The location cannot be beat, providing us easy walking access to the sites, shopping and restaurant in the city Center. The apartment is so comfortable we had an excellent time just enjoying the space - it sure beats coming back to a cramped hotel room. Definitely make some time to "do nothing" and just relax in the space.
The apartment is well appointed - we were able to walk to the grocery and cook breakfast every morning to save some money. The coffee machine could not be more convenient. I think we had at least one hot dog every night from the nearby famous hotdog stand!
We enjoyed the modern styling of the apartment furnishings and really enjoyed having the aquarium. Everything worked great, the showers were hot, the temperature of the apartment always cozy, and we took full advantage of the washer and dryer!
Orri was an excellent "host" from afar always responding to any questions quickly with helpful answers. Key access, check in and check out was effortless. No problems!
Tours are no problem as most companies picked us up at the nearest intersection and hotels are just a short walk away.
Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in Rekjavik and I know I would try to rent again next time I come back!
