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.
No smoking inside please
The host did an excellent job of relaying information in a timely fashion to me. Directions to the apartment were simple and easy, and the apartment itself was very warm and inviting. The location was great as it was less than a 5 minute walk to get to almost every major area of Reykjavik. There were never any temperature issues with the air or the shower--in fact, friends of ours who stayed at a different hotel complained of a sulfur smell coming from their showers. We never experienced such a thing here. Would definitely recommend!
The apartment was as wonderful as it is in the pictures.
We felt at home right away. We stayed for 10 days and had the best time ever : )
Great location, beautiful, design, cosy and confortable! Amazing moments!
Thank you for all!
We recommand this place!!!
This was our first time using Airbnb, and we couldn't have been happier.
Dýrleif was so helpful before we arrived, giving us great advice on the best spots to go for shopping, dining etc. Reykjavik Excursions, the coach company we used to get into Reykjavik, also sorted out a minibus to take us directly to the flat.
It's really well situated, just a minute or two's walk from the high street, but distant enough that you don't get disturbed by the notorious weekend parties! You'll find it quite easy to walk around & check out the city from here.
The flat is exactly as you see it in the pictures - you can tell a lot of attention & care has gone into the decor of each of the rooms. I particularly liked the choice of oriental vibe in the bedroom. The record collection is a wonderful addition - you'll find a great spread of classics, soul, rock n roll & of course some Icelandic artists. I was quite sad not to have noticed the tall drum in the washing room until the last day!
The flat has great heating so you definitely won't be cold. Just down the road is Welcome Apartments, which is the nearest pick-up & drop-off reference point for any trips & tour buses you may go on that don't go to the front door.
In summary we had a fantastic time, the flat is a great place to stay during a trip to Iceland, and we will definitely be coming back & staying here again if it's not been booked already!

The apartment is exactly as described and everything was there for a very welcome and relaxing stay. It is in a great and really central location for all major attractions in central Reykjavik but is also very quiet with little traffic or other noise. dyrleif was around if we needed anything but everything was so well organised we did not need to call on this. Perfect for our 5 night stay and would definitely stay again.
Lovely apartment! Even nicer and bigger than the pictures. Excellent location, couldn't have asked for more.

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
