About This Listing
The quiet and comfortable place to stay at in the capital area and everything within an easy reach, minutes from downtown Reykjavík. There is nothing better than relaxing in the hot tub after a busy day at your comfortable home away from home.
Have you ever sat in a hot tub with northern lights dancing above? If not Elves Hill Studio might be the right place for you in Iceland. Since the nineteen thirties it has been widely believed elves live in a rock 300 meters up the road. Several attempts to straighten a curve there and move the rock failed dramatically. Vehicles and machinery broke down and workers were hurt but don´t worry, the small hidden people are nice and have absolutely nothing against humans as long as they respect their homes.
Centrally located in the capital area, only 7 km from downtown Reykjavik, we offer a very nice private studio with access to a big garden and a large hot tub/Jacuzzi. Four can sleep in the studio in one king size bed and a sleeping sofa/pull out (website hidden), radio and a free wireless internet access. Bed linen and towels included as well as comfortable bathrobes and slippers. The lovely & sociable cat Kátína(Happiness) adopted me l2012 so she might visit you but it is up to you if you let her in.
5 minutes walk to the best view point in town and where more elves are said to live and rule. Two buses taking you to downtown Reykjavík in 15 minutes, stop 90 meters from the studio and there is plenty of free parking around. LGB and family friendly.
Nearby there are grocery stores, cafés, bakeries and shopping malls. If you decide to walk to downtown Reykjavík I recommend a very nice 40 minutes walk through parks, along the sea shore and by Reykjavík artificial beach.
I live next door and my mother lives downstairs. We are very happy to assist you in order to make your stay in Iceland very enjoyable. Look forward to see you in Iceland!
A real spacious Icelandic hot tub, a garden house and a big outdoor patio and a garden house. Comfortable bath ropes await you and if you need there is a washing machine in the bathroom. Late night check in is no problem. We are living next door and always ready to assist our guests and so is Kátína, our very friendly cat.
Interaction with Guests
I consider my guests my friends and communicate quite a lot with them if they want. I like to learn how they experience Iceland and give them tips about different places they are interested about. In the studio the guests find a lot of brochures and books to help with their travel plans.
Álfhólsvegur is where the elves live and therefore a magical place. The studio is situated up on a hill and nature is all around us. On each site of the hill there are very nice parks, nice view to the surrounding mountains and everything in the city is within a easy reach. This is a quiet area with big gardens and where neighbours help each other so indeed a very nice place to live in.
Buses stop regularly in front of the studio taking people to downtown Reykjavík within 20 minutes.
Other Things to Note
For those having a car Elves Hill Studio is a very good place as there is plenty of free parking around.
As the studio is in a residential area and shares a garden with me and my mother, guests are asked not to have noise after 10:30pm in the evening.
Access to the hot tub and the garden is as well restricted after 10:30pm.
Smoking is prohibited inside the apartment but allowed in the garden.
Guests are kindly asked to read carefully our visitors guide which is available in the studio regarding wireless internet, television, radio, washing machine, kitchen and other things.
Check out time is 11am but I am flexible as long as new guests are not arriving same day.
This very nice and quiet Appartement is definetly recomendable for a trip to Iceland and Reykjavík. Siggi was a helpful and friendly host so it was easy to feel comfortable there. From the Appartement you can reach the different sight seeing points easily and grocery stores are nearby.
Thanks Siggi for having us!
Lieber Siggi & Mama
Wir waren zu dritt eine Woche bei euch zu Hause.Uns hat das Häuschen von Anfang an sehr gefallen. Alles ist so wie ihr es beschrieben habt. Hell und warm, eine Küche die man gerne benützt und vor allem eine sehr gute Wohngegend. Ganz in der Nähe bis 24:00 h einkaufen zu können, auch am Sonntag war sehr angenehm. Aber trotzdem ist es in der Nacht ganz still und wir erhohlten uns prächtig.Du und deine Mutter waren aber auch sehr liebenswerte Gastgeber und das heisse Bad im Garten war sehr schön. Herzlichen Dank, wir können euch nur weiter empfehlen!
Great flat, nice area, nice hosts. drove us into the city on our departure day!
Lovely studio and very friendly and helpful hosts (we really appreciated the efforts they went to to provide a cot and baby bath). Thank you!
Das Appartment war sehr, sehr sauber und heimelig. Ankommen war sehr unkompliziert. Die Lage ist Top! Bus, sämtl. Geschäfte, Bank und Schnellstraße im direkten Umfeld.
Siggi ein perfekter Gastgeber, hat angeboten den Tub anzurichten. Ich kann nur sagen, alles richtig gemacht um einen perfekten Aufenthalt auf Island zu haben. Danke Siggi.
