The Space

GREAT LOCATION in an attractive neighbourhood - Vesturbær - in the Centre of Reykjavík. Quiet place but short walking distance from downtown and many sites of interest, for example the recreational paths along the south and north shore.

Bright and very tidy apartment.

I have a COZY LITTLE GUESTROOM with a double bed. It has a double bed but suits one person rather than two.

INCLUDED in price (but also just ask if you have questions):
Duvet, pillows, linen, towels.
Hairdryer & straightening iron (just ask for it).
Space for food in fridge and cupboards in kitchen.
Use of all equipment in the kitchen.
Use of laundry machine.
Free WiFi.
Free use of the living room, incl. TV and stereo.
Free parking.


72 sq meters bright and charming flat in an attractive neighbourhood very close to Reykjavik City Centre.

7-10 min walk to the Centre and only a 3 - 5 min walk to a bakery, grocery store and an outdoor swimming pool with hot tubs.

10-12 min walk to BSI Main Bus Station where the Flybus from the Keflavik Airport stops (5 min by taxi). The Flybus also stops at Hotel Saga which is 5 min walking distance away.

Recreational paths along the northern and southern shore are ca 7 min walk away, including Reykjavik Harbour where Whale watching tours depart.
2 min walk to a major hotel - Hotel Saga - where the Airport Bus stops and many Tour Companies.
2 min walk to a Cinema.

The apartment has two bedrooms, both with a double bed.
The kitchen has a dining table for 6 people.
Cozy living room for relaxing.
Laundry room in the basement.
Shared entrance with one other apartment but the owner is in a nursing home and nobody lives there currently, so it's like being in a private quiet house.
Big garden in the front and back of the house.
Free parking right outside the house.
Free WiFi.

There are several bus lines within very short walking distance ... but from this location you can walk anywhere.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Matthildur jest bardzo dobrym gospodarzem. Kontakt z nią przed, w czasie i po podróży zawsze był bardzo szybki i łatwy. Razem z moimi znajomymi jesteśmy bardzo zadowoleni z pobytu w jej mieszkaniu w Rejkiawiku, które jest spokojne, przytulne i dobrze wyposażone.
    Polecam mieszkanie, Rejkiawik i Islandię!
    Chez Matthildur on habite bien et comfortablement. L'appartement est calme et bien équipé. Avec mes amis on s'y sentait très bien. Matthildur est une personne très sympathique, elle nous a beaucoup aidé avant et lors de notre séjour à Rejkiavik.
    Je vous recommende cet appartement, la ville de Rejkiavik et l'Islande!

  • Matthildur was the perfect host !
    Her flat is very clean, she's very nice et we slept in very good conditions. She took her time to give us advices about Iceland.
    Her flat is near the city centre, about 10 minutes on foot.

  • The apartment was exactly as described, everything was very clean and comfortable. Matthildur (email hidden) - friendly and engaged but respects your privacy as a guest. Very happy with my stay.

  • My mother and I had a wonderful stay with Matthildur during our trip to Reykjavik. Matthildur prepared the larger room with the double bed for our stay; the room was clean, had comfortable furniture and an abundance of space and light. The whole apartment was quite comfortable, spacious and well-furnished. We also enjoyed the neighborhood - on our way home we passed the places where the locals live and this way got a much better feel for the non-tourist part of life in Reykjavik. Matthildur gave us plenty of interesting suggestions on what to see in Reykjavik and helped us locating on a map the places we planned to visit. Overall she (email hidden). I would definitely recommend Matthildur's apartment to any of my friends who might be heading to Iceland.

  • Matthildur (email hidden) and the apartment was lovely. She was easy to communicate with before and during my stay, the place was clean, tidy and comfortable, and she was fun to talk to too! I'd be happy to stay again!

  • This was my first AirBNB experience and it won't be my last. Matthildur was lovely and her home clean, cozy, warm and a quiet location just a short walk from the main area.

  • Matthildur was lovely and wonderful! I had such a lovely time and would highly recommend her place! And Iceland is AMAZING!!!

  • I have just returned from a week long stay in Reykjavik and I was so glad to have stayed with Matthildur. As I was relatively new to Airbnb, I was appreciative of Matthildur's quick response and it was easy there on afterwards as Matthildur is friendly, welcoming and warm. Matthildur's home is a nice walk from town and close the sea, a store and an outdoor swimming pool - I felt like a local. As another guest said, when I return to Iceland, I will be contacting Matthildur again!

  • It was a wonderful stay for mainly two reasons: first the sunny weather for the whole week, but that just has been luck, and secondly it was the residence at Matthildurs home. It's right, the room to sleep is small, but it's only for sleep and for all the other things I could use the whole flat. Moreover Matthildur (email hidden) and she gave me a lot of interesting tipps for sightseeing, eating and - last not least - about islandic stories and sagas. I think it has not been the last time I have been in Island - and when I'll come back I hope it will be be to Matthildur again!

Hi, I'm glad you found your way here! I'm a forty something urban planner & designer. I'm calm and friendly. Love to meet people from all over the world. I've studied in Canada, England and France. I'm into languages (French in particular), reading, pilates, yoga, dancing, walking and hiking. I live by myself and I have an extra cozy little guest room with a double bed. It's good for one person.
