Simply a great place to Enjoy what this lovely little city has to offer

Thank you very much,

It's the most vibrant and fun neighborhood in the whole city. The nightlife and restaurant district is just a few minute walk away, and all service is very conveniently located
Most buses actually end up in this neighborhood, so there is easy access to all parts of the city, as well as a bus station that serves the whole country.
Interaction with Guests
I love to be hands on and available for my guests.
I stay only about 10 minutes away, and am always ready to help and give advice
The best and liveliest neighborhood in all of Reykjavik. Whether you want to go out and enjoy the nightlife, or have a great base to explore the surrounding of Reykjavik, and come back to a place where all the best restaurants are, this is the place for you!
The main city bus hub is only 5 minutes walk from the apartment.
Just two minutes away is the main bus company that offers day tours around Reykjavik and surrounding areas (The Golden Circle, the Blue Lagoon etc.).
Then about 15 minute walk away is the main bus terminal in Reykjavik, BSI.
There is 1 free parking space right outside the apartment
Smoking is not allowed inside the flat, please do so in the garden or the balcony behind the house (accessible from main bedroom), and please throw the cigarette buts in the ashtrays.
No crazy parties, it's fine to have a few friends over and play music, but not trying to recreate Woodstock ;)
No one was at the apartment to let us in when we arrived. I tried contacting the host by phone and by email, but he did not respond. Finally, a neighbor called the host's wife and she let us in. I don't know what we would have done if we had not met the neighbor.
The apartment does not look the was it appears in the photographs. It is not in the clean, modern, Scandinavian-Ikea style that is shown in the pictures. The garden is a bit of a mess.
Gunnar was an excellent host, the flat was generously sized and in a great part of Reykjavik.
Before the trip he was great to talk to, answering any questions I had about the flat, he even gave a few good suggestions as to where we should go in and out of Reykjavik
We didn't get to meet him in Reykjavik but Rose kindly stepped in for him to set us up in the flat even though we had arrived late.
The flat was great very generously sized, especially as we were only a group of 3. All the beds had been made up and we could get out enjoying ourselves immediately.
All local conveniences, great restaurants, exciting nightlife, museums and other sites were well within walking distance.
Overall I'd thoroughly recommend staying here.
Gunnar was very accommodating and he was also very communicative. Finding his home was easy as it was very well located. I would definitely stay here again because it is a great value and location and because Gunnar was a great host . However, my only complaint is that the furniture in the pictures is much different than is actually there in person. Other than that, it was a really great experience. Thanks Gunnar!
Gunnar was wonderful at welcoming our team to Reykjavik.
We had a wonderful time and the home was perfect for three of us, myself and our world class riggers / climbers, and we were able to rest and refresh before each days performance. Excellent location walking distance to everything. Light and bright and big and beautiful.
Gunnar was easy to get in touch with and was very service minded. The location of the flat could not have been better! It is in walking distance to everything in Reykjavik city. Close to restaurants and bars, but in a quiet street. 3 nice bedrooms with comfortable beds made our stay great also late at night.
Great location in downtown Reykjavik, just 2x blocks from city center. Clean and quite location. Host was resourceful.
Our host made us feel very welcome - he stayed up waiting for us at the flat until we got there the first night since one of our flights was delayed into Reykjavik. The flat was as described, 1 bathroom, three bedrooms with room enough for 2 people in each room plus room in the living space for extra people. It was perfect for what we needed - a home base for our day trips in and around Iceland. The neighborhood was probably the best thing about this flat - couple minutes walk from lots of lovely shops, restaurants and everything else the town of Reykjavik has to offer! We loved our stay and the flat was everything we hoped for.
