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. Although situated in the center, the street is quiet residential area.
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 from your apt). These companies have sales offices in the arrival hall at Keflavik airport.

A charming apartment that was warm and cosy. Very clean. The record player and vinyl were a good way to pass the time on a cold wintery evening. We really enjoyed staying here- the location was ideal for restaurants and the hip stores of Reykjavik. Walking distance to museums and the old wharf. Highly recommended!
Perfect stay in Reykjavic, we couldn't have wished for more. Stylish, cosy, super close to the town centre. We were so sad to leave. The info about how to get there and in and info for exploring Reykjavik was great. Thank you so much. We have very happy memories of our stay.
This was a wonderful apartment for our stay in Reykjavik! The apartment itself is within about 5-10 minutes walk of all of central Reykjavik and 10 minutes walk of the harbour area (for whale watching and puffin watching tours!) and is super clean, very stylish and spacious (much bigger than it looked in the pictures!). We loved the mid-century furnishings, record player and super-fast internet. Communication from Dyrleif was excellent and we easily managed to find the apartment and keys thanks to her! The book of suggestions for places to eat, drink and shop left in the apartment was wonderful. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay in Reykjavik and would love to stay there again! :-)
The apartment was ideally situated on a quiet street parallel to the main high street of Reykjavik, in a beautiful old building with bags of style. Unfortunately we did not get a chance to meet our host, but she was extremely helpful with any questions we had. For an authentic experience of Icelandic living I would highly recommend staying here, I would certainly stay again.
This was our first time using Airbnb and Dyrleif made it a great experience! Dyrleif's friend was cleaning the apartment when we arrived and allowed us to stow our luggage and get our keys so that we could roam around the city. The apartment is exceptionally clean and very warm and cozy. We did not get an opportunity to meet Dyrleif in person, however she did reach out via e-mail to see if we needed anything during our stay. The location of the apartment is perfect, 10 min walk from the downtown and very close to popular stores and restaurants. We would definitely come back if we are ever in Reykjavik again! Thank you!!!
This was a perfect stay in Rekjavik! Cosy, beautiful apartment , so well designed and felt like home! It was a pleasure to stay here , Dylreif was kind enugh to wait up for us when our flight was delayed. After that the apartment was just like ours for 3 nights and it was perfect. The record player was great too and you can link up your iPod too. Internet super fast! Hot shower and lovely bath. Super Central, cosy, warm, ! I want to go back already. If you have a few nights or a week in Iceland , stay here. 10/10

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
