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 as a driver-guide 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.
The studio was exactly as pictured! We were in a rut and were able to contact Gunnar and reserve the studio less than 12 hours before check-in. Gunnar was super fast in his response and gave us very detailed information on the unit. Very clean and in an awesome location near lots of hip spots. Great price for this place!
Gunnar's place is in a great location to the city. The building is a bit older and the room is on the street level. The room was true to picture and had everything we needed within the studio. Gunnar communicated well even though he was out of town for our stay. He responded quickly and was flexible and understanding when our tour we had booked was canceled and we had to change our accommodation dates. Would definitely stay here again.
Gunnar was very welcoming and attentive to our needs, anything we needed, he was willing to provide. The room was very nice, had everything we needed to make breakfast every morning if we needed, and it was very comfortable. The room was stocked with basics in the fridge, and that was really awesome. We would definitely consider staying here again on our yearly return trips to Reykjavik.
Gunnar's apartment was clean, comfortable, and close to all attractions and restaurants in Reykjavik. It had everything we needed. We enjoyed our short stay at his place, we are just sorry that we did not get to meet Gunnar! Thanks!
Gunnar was an amazing host! One of my favourite air Bnb experienced, he was friendly and informative about Iceland and so helpful. Due to weather I had to cancel my trip to Vik and Gunnar helped out a lot. So grateful and also the rooms had everything you needed, breakfast and milk in the fridges was lovely and there's left over dried food in the cupboards.
We made pasta one evening as Iceland is very expensive to eat out a lot. All in all i recommend this place , we had a fantastic stay . There's also a hot pools nearby that Gunnar told us about! :) we could leave our bags in the hall upstairs too while we checked out an on our tour which was so helpful! so thank you Gunnar. I cannot recommend this place enough! 10/10
Gunnar is the nicest of persons, and he really made us feel very welcome from the beginning, with plenty of insider-tipps regarding swimming in the near vicinity and other helpful recommendations.
The room was perfectly clean, and Gunnar made sure that we didn't need to buy any groceries nor milk for our breakfast.
With his thorough instructions on how to find the house it was no problem to get there, and there's plenty of parking space around the house, even though it is in walking distance to all the interesting places in Reykjavik. I can highly recommend Gunnar's place and I would definitely stay there again.
This was all we needed and more. Comfy lodging, great location, and excellent host.
