THE STUDIO has a double bed, internet, shower, washer, dryer, two bicycles 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 interrest nearby. First I would mention Hellisgerdi, where the elves are said to live, This is a beautiful, park, with trees and lava.
it´s about 5 mins walk. There are some nice restaurants close by, and just 5 mins walk to the seaside. The local swimmingpool is not far away, and it is ideal to grab the bikes and cycle there. 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.
We had a wonderful time at Sirry's place! She was very welcoming, and even when we changed plans at the last moment (arriving hours later than planned) it wasn't a problem. She made sure we were at home & comfortable and it made our stay ever the more pleasant.
A cozy and comfy studio away from the main city - a great budget choice if you've got your own car and need a place to chill before your next destination. The hot tub was a nice bonus!
A beautiful, clean place. We stayed over New Year's and were able to watch fireworks go off all throughout the city from the park just down the street. The neighborhood fireworks were better than any show I've seen in the US! :)
Thank you, Sirry, for letting us stay.
Sirry and her boyfriend were excellent hosts. The place met all of our needs and had a very comfortable bed. The neighborhood was also great! Would definitely stay here again if the opportunity arose.
Again, thanks for the wonderful stay and the very comfy bed. Pity we didn't have a long enough trip in Iceland to see more of the area! We'll definitely revisit sometime in the future!
For those of you looking up this listing, you can be assured of what is advertised - a cosy stay with a hot tub that has an unbeatable view! It's not in the heart of the city but the bus stop's just a walk away and runs til midnight. In any case, you're likely to be booking day trips with the tour companies in the area which offer pick up services.
We found Sirry to be both very friendly and helpful. She took the time to discuss our local travel plans and then to make suggestions and provide directions to assist us accordingly.
We found the location of her home provided a perfect base for our stay as we had a vehicle and could easily access all the sites we visited.
The studio apt (a converted garage) was adequate albeit a much smaller accommodation than we are used to, so that took some adjustment on our part. The bed was very comfortable.
We greatly enjoyed our time staying at the studio apartment with Sirry. The living arrangements were very comfortable and had everything that we needed and a even a few extras! We took advantage of using the hot tub, which felt amazing since it was so cold. Sirry was also great about recommending things to see and places to eat in the area. I would greatly recommend staying here!
I thoroughly enjoyed staying with Sigridur. She and her family were very nice and they even invited me to have dinner with them (which was very tastey). The room was private and quite, located down the street from the elf park. I would stay there again. I only regret not trying the hot tub!
Sirry was a wonderful host and we can’t imagine a better accommodation for our first night in Iceland very close both to Reykjavík and to Keflavik airport. Sigridur, her family and the house were fantastic and the cosy studio apartment in the idyllic neighbourhood felt like home immediately. Sirry is very helpful and can give a lot of useful adivce on travelling in Iceland and on what to see in and around Reykjavík and Hafnarfjörður. As a matter of fact, we loved this place so much that we were thrilled to be able to spontaneously add another night there. We would recommend Sigridur and her wonderful accommodation to anyone.
We spent three days here. It was a perfect place for R & R from jet lag. The apartment was warm and cozy . We loved all the steaming hot water and the wonderful bed. Hafnarfjourdur is a perfect location with museums, grocery store, bakery, and restaurants within a short walk. All the tours & the airport bus have pickup at the Viking Hotel downtown. It is a perfect quiet location with easy assess to all you could want to do. We loved the town and were glad we stayed here instead of Reykjavik.
Sirry was a wonderful host. No matter what, she always responded with “no problem”….getting up at 4:45 am to give us a ride to catch the airport bus, answering a call for help with the washer settings early Saturday morning, waiting an hour at the hotel for us when we arrived & still giving us a tour of town on the way home, stopping preparations for a family dinner to help me find krona coins for the collectors in the family, and giving us a ride to show us the swimming pool. I would recommend her apartment to everyone. We will definitely stay again if we are ever lucky enough to return.
