About this listing
A small studio apartment in my house. You have your own entrance, small bathroom with a washing machine and dryer and a small kitchenette so you have your privacy but I am next door if needed Free Wifi and Public transportation is 5 minutes away.
THE STUDIO has a double bed, internet, shower, washer, dryer,and the very nice travelers best friend... the hot - tub:-)
The flybus from keflavik airport stops not far away, and we are happy to provide pick-up from there. It is within walkable distance, but kind of hard to walk with the bags, not to mention find the way. We are located in the older part of Hafnarfjordur and there are some places of interest nearby. First I would mention Hellisgerdi, where the elves are said to live, This is a beautiful, park, with trees and lava.
Hafnarfjordur is about 35 minutes drive away from the airport and about 15 minutes drive from Reykjavik Center.
It´s about 5 mins walk from the apartment to Straeto, the public transportation to Reykjavik and about 15 minutes walk from the Viking Hotel where the Flybus stops. There are some nice restaurants close by, and just 5 mins walk to the seaside. The local swimming pool is not far away, 1.2 km or about 20 minutes walk. . In the apartment we have a large map of Iceland, and we have marked some suggestions for longer trips on the map. we also have a printer available for guests, this can come in handy when planning.
There are two grocery stores in a walkable distance, one is a low-price store where you can get everything you need, the other is open for longer hours, but more expensive. The bus station is close by and the bus goes to Reykjavik midtown every twenty minutes.
Washing machine, dryer, internet, hot tub, seperate entrance
Interaction with Guests
Very flexible, we often go into the hot tub with our guests and spend time with them if they want. If our guests want privacy they can have that also, but our door is always open for our guests.
Hellisgerdi the elf park is absolutely great, the town has a very lovely center with restaurants, coffee houses and shops and our harbor is said to be the best made by nature so this was a trading center for years.
There is a great swimming pool close by and supermarket is in a walking distance.
The Flybus from Keflavik airport stops in a few minutes walking distance and from there it is easy to get on most guided tours.
The bus to Reykjavik center is 5 minutes walk away and goes to Reykjavik every 20 minutes from morning to midnight. The center of Reykjavik is 15 minutes away with bus
Other Things to Note
NOTE. There is no smoking in the apartment but we smoke outside the house and some of our guests sent us notification because they smell traces of smoke.
We hope you feel like at home when you are staying with us.
The host walked a few extra miles for us. We felt safe in the neighborhood but did not have a chance to spend anytime in the neighborhood as we were out sight seeing all the time.
My son and I stayed in this cosy studio apartment at the end of a 3 week trip round Iceland. It was perfect for a few days to visit Reykjavik. The flat is in Hafnarfjordur which is a lovely part of the city and well worth taking the time to explore. Sigridur was very kind and super helpful throughout our stay.
It was a perfect stay at sigridur. We had our entrance, bathroom and little kitchen. It is a perfect stay when you come from the airport kevlavik.
This place was the second to last of our two weeks trip in Iceland. My girlfriend and I stayed there for two nights.
+ own entrance and key
+ own kitchen, fridge, washing mashine and tumble dryer
+ enough space
+ friendly hosts
+ comfortable bed
+ hot tub to use!
- the room smelled somewhat of smoke
- was a bit noisy in the morning
Summarized, I can recommend this place, especially when you need your own kitchen, washing possibilites and you don't mind the smell of smoke.
Hafnafjördur was not the best choice for a room near the blue lagoon or the airport. The room itself is a furnished garage with a good bed. For one night it was okay.
Super convenient from the airport, seamless check-in, cozy little flat, good wi-fi. Awesome.
This apartment was a nice compromise in location- halfway between the airport and Reykjavik. It was easy to book buses or take public transportation either way, and even if Reykjavik is a smaller city compared to most, it was nice to stay in a small town and explore there a bit. Sigridur gave us lots of helpful information and was a very friendly host.
