Apartment - Entire home/apt · Þórsgata, Reykjavik, Capital Region 101, Iceland

The Space

Garden view in the center of Reykjavik.

Live in an residential street only a few steps away from the bustling street of Skolavordustigur. The apartment is located in the city center with all its attractions as well as scheduled bus trips to places of interest. The apartment has a bedroom with a made up bed and an kitchen that opens into the living room that doubles as a second bedroom with a sleeper sofa.

For recreation take an early swim at the Swim Hall (Sundhollin) a charming indoor swimming pool built in the thirties. After the swim take a relaxing moment in the hot pool and strike a conversation with the locals. Icelanders will be in a talkative mood either in a café or bar at night or sitting in the hot pool in their swimsuit

All the best sites of Reykjavik are in walking distance of the apartment. The National Gallery, Reykjavik art museum, National Museum (10 min, walk). Harpa, the new concert hall sits at a wonderful place on harbor, its worth a visit.

The small grocery shop Krambudin on the paralel Skolavordustigur is good for necessities, while the larger Bonus is better the weeks shopping.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We spent 8 nights at the fully equipped, clean and comfortable apartment on the nicest street in the nicest part of 101 Reykjavik. Near the Sunna Guesthouse and Halgrimskirk on Thorsgata, It is an easy walk to the busy night spots, museums and pools or anywhere else in the city from this lovely quiet apartment with great beds and a nice kitchen. We saw our kind host the first day and didn't see him again, but felt the care he used when building the apartment.
    So many nice things to say about staying at garden view in the center.
    Thank you is the most appropriate.

  • This lovely apartment was precisely as advertised. You honestly cannot ask for a better location and it has everything I needed for my two-week stay. I feel that the pricing was reasonable and Kári was very approachable. I'm rather an independent traveler, so I did not go to him for advice or pointers on what to do in town, but I suspect he would be helpful there, as well. I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone visiting Reykjavik.

  • Very nice apartment, big enough for three persons and perfect location! It was clean and warm. Although we haven't seen Kari a lot, he was very willing to help us. We made a gorgious roadtrip with a rental car and enjoyed good weather and friendly people in Iceland!

  • Kari was helpful and very friendly. The apartment was a perfect fit and so close to city center. He even lent us a can opener in a time of need. Highly recommended. Super clean and a great amount of space for 2-3.

  • Our stay at Kari's was great. The flat is comfortable, large, and quiet. It's right in the center town, at two steps from the main street. Kari is highly kind and helpful. He can speak French or English. Great place to stay in Rekjavik.

  • We are just home from a 2 week stay in Reykjavik at Garden View in The Center and want to say how very much we enjoyed our time there. Kari is an absolutely excellent host and he could not have done more for us. The location is ideal and along with some suggestions from Kari for excellent outings and day trips we could not have had a better time in Iceland. There is a grocery store close by which is open late in the evenings, Cafe Loki for great Icelandic dishes even closer, and a good fish restaurant (Fish) which we used for take out to bring back to the apartment when we were tired, also near by. The apartment is clean and the beds comfortable. Very quiet neighborhood close to the big Lutheran church. We were totally happy with everything.

As a frequent business traveler, I know far too well the cold and inhuman touch of the hotel.
