We are very proud of our location, in the center of Reykjavik city, in few minutes walking distance to all major tourist attractions, museums and most popular restaurants – but still in a quiet residential area.

The space
Together with this one, we offer six other elegant studio-apartments in our guesthouse House of the Spirits in the center of Reykjavik - in few minutes walking distance to all the most important tourist attractions, restaurants, museum etc. - but still in a quiet residential area.
All our studios have a private en-suit small bathroom and a fully equipped kitchenette.
Bed-linen and towels are provided - as well as a wireless Internet connection, free of charge.
Full breakfast can be arranged for reasonable price (23 euros) - but we don't recommend it, as there is a grocery store in two minutes walking distance from our house - and we always provide for free coffee, tea, milk, muesli, butter and jam, oil, sugar and spices.
There is a 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 specialized in history, culture and geology. Fully licensed as a driver-guide, I offer private excursions in a private vehicle for up to 8 passengers.
We also help our guests organizing their stay in Iceland - and we take care of eventual bookings without any commission.
Feel free to contact us for any further information.
I live and work in the house the biggest part of the year. When I am at home the guests can reach me whenever they like. Sometimes during winter I stay in Paris - times and times. Than my assistant - also living in the house - takes care of everything. Our guests can always contact me by e-mail for any questions or problems - I try my best to answer immediately. Furthermore, my mobile number and my assistant's number are given to every guest.
Check-in is normally at 14.00 and check-out at 11.00. But we are flexible with both. We always try to have our apartments ready as early as possible for early arriving guests. In case you would have to wait, we would of course keep the luggage for you.

Where you’ll be

Reykjavík, Capital Region, Iceland

We are very proud of our location, in the center of Reykjavik city, in few minutes walking distance to all most important tourist attractions, museums and well known restaurants – but still in a quiet residential area. No bars, clubs or discos are in the neighborhood. (Still, Friday and Saturday nights, you might hear partying people walk by on their way downtown. But wherever in Reykjavik city, you could never avoid that – it is simply a part of the “week-end life” in Reykjavik).
The old harbor is in three minutes walking distance, with it’s nice restaurants and cafe's - and departure of all boats for whale-watching, bird-watching and fishing tours.
