A very nice appartment in the the center, in a quiet street, but within walking distance to the main attractions Reykjavík has to offer. A large living room- kitchen area. 2 good bedrooms. One has a queen bed, the other 2 individual beds.

The Space

The appartment is on the first floor in a 3 story stone building on a quiet residential street, but right in the center, spacious living room-kitchen area, 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed(140 cm) and the other 2 individual beds(100cm each). 2 of the sofas in the living room are easily turned into beds, quite comfortable actually. We also have a baby crib. So a whole lot of people could sleep in the appartment, but it is ideal for 2-4 people.
.The bathroom has a bathtub and a shower. Wireless internet, tv, washing machine, dishwasher.
You will find yourself within a 5 min walk to most of the great attractions in Reykjavik. .
The owner lives in the building and is usually at home and would be glad to give guests tips about Reykjavik as well of the rest of Iceland.

  • We had a wonderful time in Iceland. The place was in a great location and Stefan was a wonderful host. Stefan was more than willing to answer the flood of questions we had prior to the trip and even spent time teaching my friend a bit about Iceland and it's language. I would definitely recommend.

  • Stefan was very friendly and gracious in hosting us. Amazing home with lots of space to work with, and a good location in Reykjavik. Would definitely stay there if I visit again!

  • Stefan was a great host. When he greeted us at the door, he was warm and friendly and had some great tips on different sights to see.

    The place was as he described in the post and pictures. We were able to walk everywhere and there was no shortage of sights to see.

  • Stefan had a centrally located apartment with all the amenities. Stefan was helpful and responded quickly to any enquires. He also was very accommodating with our early arrival and departure.

  • Lovely one bedroom flat, with a great living room, bathroom and equipped kitchen. Superb location within walking distance to everywhere in Reykjavik. Although it's central, the street is very quiet. Stefan is a great host and he speaks fluent English and Portuguese (this last one is my 1st language!). Me and my husband had a great time as our 1st experience with Airbnb. I strongly recommend Stefan's flat, and definitely will come back.

  • A very nice place to stay and explore Reykjavik! Close to everything, a luminous and comfortable place to use as your base while there. Stefan was a very nice host!

  • Large and fully stocked apartment right in the centre of Reykjavik, perfect location for seeing the city and could be a good base for trips around iceland.

    We stayed for 2 nights and the place way clean and tidy with some spare food left over in the cupboards which was really helpful, and we were very happy to have a kitchen to cook in. The furniture is slightly older than in the photos but this is a very good value for money place to stay in the city. Highly recommended.

  • The apartment was very well suited for up to four guests. My wife and I found the beds comfortable and my niece, who slept in the living room, also found the bed to be very comfortable. Wifi and television services were also excellent.

    The apartment was very well located, one street over from Laugavegur Street - the top street in downtown Reykjavik for shopping and restaurants. Also, the apartment was larger than expected. The apartment was however a bit worn compared to other apartments I have stayed in.

    All in all, i don't think you can beat the location and value of Stefan's place in Reykjavik, especially for a family. I would recommend the apartment due to its excellent location, size and amenities.

working with mental patients
I am born 1950 and grew up in Reykjavík. Spent some 25 years abroad, in US, Scandinavia, France, Brasil and Portugal. Moved back 2001 and brought up my 2 youngest sons. Work as a translator from Portuguese and also work in a small mental health community. I have rented out a studio for 3 summers in the same house, through Airbnb, and have really enjoyed it. Some changes have been made in the building and now (from May 2014) I am offering for rent a bigger space. I live in the same building and am usually around and available.
