The Space

We offer an elegant studio-apartment in our guesthouse House of the Spirits in centre of Reykjavik - in few minutes walking distance to all the most important tourist attractions, restaurants, museum etc. - but still in a quiet residential area.
The studio has a private en-suit bathroom and a fully equipped kitchenette. Bed-linen and towels are provided - as well as wireless Internet connection, free of charge. Full breakfast can be arranged - but we always provide for free coffee, tea, muesli, milk, butter and jam, sugar and spices.
Possibility for an extra bed for third person for reasonable price.
Gunnar, the host, is a professor in Icelandic language and literature - and a professional tourist guide specialised in history, culture and geology. Fully licenced (email hidden) he offers private excursions in a private vehicle for up to eight passengers.
We also help our guests organising their stay in Iceland - and we take care of eventual bookings without any commission.
Feel free to contact us for any further information.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Gunnar was quite hospitable. The room was -- as advertised -- centrally located and just what we needed. It had a little wear to it, but for the price and the location it wasn't bad. Gunnar was also doing some minor work around the place while we were there which bodes well for the future.

  • Gunnar was a great host, very friendly and accommodating to your needs. Prior help and advise was much appreciated. The accommodation was clean and functional. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Gunnar is a fantastic host. As soon as we made contact, the information and help given was invaluable we arrived a little later due to stopping off at the blue lagoon on the way to the apartment. (a recommendation by Gunnar) When we arrived everything was ready and waiting for us. The apartment is in a great location walking distance to everything. We are looking forward to returning in a few days after exploring the north.

  • Gunnar was a lifesaver - literally. We were stranded and showed up at his doorstep at 6:30pm looking for a place to stay. He was busy and yet he spent the time to get us set up, helped us do laundry and even had milk delivered so we could have it for breakfast. What a guy. The studio is right downtown - perfect location - and well maintained.

  • My friend and I spent one night in this studio apartment. It is very close to the city centre and Gunnar was extremely helpful. Highly recommended.

  • We didn't have the chance to meet Gunnar, but the check-in process was smooth and easy. Gunnar also did a great job of explaining the best way to get to his studios using the buses (much less pricey than a cab). We enjoyed having our own studio apartment so that we could prepare a few meals at home, and Gunnar provides some breakfast items to get you started. Overall, the studios are a good value (especially in a city as expensive as Reykjavik! and especially if you'd like having your own private bathroom!), and I would recommend staying here. Thanks, Gunnar!

  • Gunnar was great and gave us loads of info. The place was perfect too, great location, breakfast stuff available and all the facilities you need.

  • I would highly recommend this accommodation for anyone traveling to Reykjavik! My studio was charming and clean with all the amenities I needed for my week-long stay, and Gunnar was a totally pleasant and helpful host to rent from. Also, the location was very convenient—just a block or two to the tourist information center, and not much further from the city centre.

  • Even before arriving Gunnar was an exemplary host when he helped us planning our trip via E-mail. The studio was exactly as described, very cosy, well equipped and a stone´s throw away from Reykjavik center. We could easily park our car in front of his house. Gunnar gave us a warm welcome, provided us with some nice breakfast and plenty of information about the neighborhood. For us, next time in the capital it should be Gunnar´s place again.
