The apartment is well situated in central 101 area, only 2 blocks away from the main shopping street Laugavegur. Short walking distance to all main attraction in the city center (2-15 min), like shops, bars, restaurants, cafés, galleries, concert hall and the harbor with its many attraction. Only about 10 min walk to the grocery store.
Fastest way from Keflavik International is to take the Airport Express bus to Lækjartorg, in the city center (40 min) and then a taxi (3 min) to the apartment or walk (10-12 min). There are two bus companies that drive more or less every 30 minutes from the airport to Reykjavik (Airport Express or Flybus). You can also buy a ticket that offers a drop off to the nearest hotel, for small extra fee (Ask for drop off at Welcome apartments on the corner of Lindargata and Vatnsstig - 2 min walk to your apt). These companies have sales offices in the arrival hall at Keflavik airport.

The apartment was amazing! We felt incredibly welcome and loved our stay. What a great few nights of sleep we had! The Dýrleif was welcoming and anticipated our needs. We can't wait to return to Reykjavik
and stay here again!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Dyrleif's apartment. It was ideally located in the centre of the city and had everything we needed. It also had many extras which we appreciated, such as several electrical adapters. Dyrleif gave us several helpful tips about what to do and see.
Das Apartment ist sehr gut gelegen und mit viel Liebe und Sorgfalt eingerichtet. Es ist sauber und alles notwendige ist vorhanden. Die Übergabe verlief einwandfrei und Dýrleif ist eine tolle Gastgeberin. Die vielen Informationen und Empfehlungen zur Stadt und Umgebung, die sie vorbereitet hat, waren sehr hilfreich und interessant.
Easily one of the best airbnb stays I have ever had. The apartment is so cozy and beautifully decorated, felt right at home. So comfortable and homey with a perfect kitchen with everything you might need and then some. The building is lovely and you look out over a nice yard with a very private entrance. Love the location! Saw some of the other hotels and hostels around town and felt so lucky to have this one. Close to great stores, grocery, waterfront, everything you would want. Even a full washer and dryer. We had our 7 year old with us and she had a perfect little bed and a stack of Calvin and Hobbes to read, she was extremely happy.
Loved the hosts suggestions, we went to Kex which which we never would have found on our own and it was fantastic, went back more than once! If you love great beer, Mikkeller and Friends is right around the corner. Easy check in and out, very convienent. We had such an amazing visit to Reykjavik and Iceland and part of the reason was this apartment. Would definitely book here again, no hesitations.
The apartment and host were both great. Everything was clean and as described...a very cool place. Location was near the center of town and very convenient. We would highly recommend.
A great apartment in a great location. Dýrleif was a great host, too, even getting in touch to let us know about a street food festival that was on during our stay. Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful stay in Dryleif's lovely apartment. We were welcomed and shown through the apartment. Everything was perfect and just what we needed after 7 days on the road. It is a warm and welcoming apartment. Very close to the city centre, shops and restaurants. Thank you Dryleif for allowing us to stay in your wonderful apartment.

About the Host, Dýrleif
I live in Reykjavik city central with my husband and 4 kids (from 9-21 years). I was working as a stylist and in costume design for advertisements, movies and theatre for several years, but at the moment I'm renting out apartments and studying managemnet and strategic planning. I love the basic things in life, like dining and vining, meeting friends and family, and of course.. travelling; seeing new places and faces, experiencing different cultures and habits
