About this listing
My lovely apartment is located in the central part of Reykjavik, in the old part of the town. It is within walking distance to the old harbour area, the main shopping street, all the restaurants, all the cozy and trendy bars, the great museums and a swimming pool. The apartment is situated in a quet residential area surrounded by local people. It has 2 bedrooms one single and one double, and of course free wireless internet access for guests travelling with laptop. It is elegantly furnished a holds a fully equipped kitchen complete with a washing machine and a good and comfortable dining area. There is also an airy living room with a television, and an outside sitting area overlooking the beautiful garden. Bed linen and towels are provided. Very good parking facilities and a big garden around the house. For people who want a good home away from home it is ideal.
Hafdís has a great location in 101 Reykjavik as well as a beautiful home! We were lucky to catch great weather and made use of her outdoor patio. The beds are comfortable and cozy. In my opinion, as a two time tourer of Iceland, one of the best places I have stayed. It was a 10 minute walk to the major downtown areas and restaurants. I highly recommend this location.
Hafdís met us on the arrival and was very welcoming. She showed us everything we needed to know, and recommended where to go and what to see. The apartment is perfectly located with only 5 minutes walk to the city center. We would love to stay here again next time we go to Reykjavik!
My partner and I had an enjoyable time staying at this delightful apartment. The apartment is conveniently located a short five minute stroll from Reykjavik's old harbour and some fifteen minutes from Laugavegur. The apartment is tastefully decorated with the owner's own charming art work and contains everything that one would require for a comfortable stay. The owner very kindly provided us with much helpful advice in relation to the apartment, to shopping and more generally to visiting Reykjavik and Iceland. Should the opportunity arise we would happily stay here again.
Bright, clean, comfortable apartment in a quiet building and neighborhood. Opens to a lovely garden and filled with artwork. The pictures are a good representation of this apartment. It is spacious and well decorated. We really felt like we were in a home, not a rental apartment.
The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, cooking tools and spices. Hafdis gave directions to the nearby Bonus (supermarket chain), just a short walk away.
Hafdis met me for my very late arrival (2 am!) and had written directions for the essentials. She also stopped by the evening before we left to make sure we had planned plenty of time to get to the airport.
The apartment itself is in a quiet neighborhood a short walk to the old harbor and city center. The neighbors were also quiet. In a six apartment unit, I only saw neighbors twice.
I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Reykjavik.
We have just finished a 1-week stay in Hafdis' beautiful apartment. It was very light and airy, and amazingly quiet for being so close to the centre of Reykjavik. The kitchen is well equipped with cooker, fridge/freezer, toaster, microwave and dishwasher. There is also WiFi, TV and DVD player. Supermarkets/grocery stores are within 10 min walk, lovely swimming pool in 15 min and the centre of town or the marina only 10 min away. Hafdis was a very gracious host who responded quickly to my pre-holiday emails and was there to meet us when we arrived. She also gave us some very useful tips as well as a large pile of tourist information sheets and maps. Her apartment has a lovely balcony to sit out (yes, it was warm enough!) and we also had access to the garden. Had we hired a car, there would have been space to park, apparently. We would definitely recommend Hafdis as a host and her apartment as a great place to stay in Reykjavik.
(If you do stay with Hafdis, we would recommend using Reykjavik Excursions and selecting AR Guesthouse as a drop-off/pickup point from the airport or for tours as it is just round the corner from Hafdis' apartment).
I got plenty of information before I arrived and felt very comfortable getting to the property, picking up the keys and getting into the flat.
Appartement très bien situé, à quelques minutes de marche seulement du centre-ville. Endroit tranquille et coquet. Hafdis est une hôte discrète, efficace et disponible au besoin.
