Laugardalur (10 min walk) (Hot Spring Valley) is a major centre for sports and recreation in the capital. In Laugardalur you will find the largest outdoor thermal pool in Reykjavik, Laugardalslaug, in which you can swim all year round. It is very hard to describe the experience of tip-toeing over frozen ground in your swimsuit and immersing yourself in gorgeous water that nature (and some ingenious Icelandic geothermal engineering) has thoughtfully heated to just the right temperature, but the number of returning visitors definitely suggests it’s worth trying.
Laugardalur also has free entry to our beautiful Botanical Garden, with woods, ponds and birdlife. Beneath the branches the lovely Café Flora is a hidden gem.
The Family Park and Zoo in Laugardalur is open all year. The Zoo includes most Icelandic animals, both wild and domesticated, from foxes, reindeer and seals to cattle, horses and sheep. In summer the Family Park offers many rides and play equipment for children of all ages. Outside the summer season the Family Park remains open as a play area.
At the edge of the Laugardalur valley, not far from Laugardalur Arena, is a strangely shaped, domed white building. It is known as the Reykjavik Art Museum’s Ásmundarsafn sculpture collection. This used to be the studio of Asmundur Sveinsson (phone number hidden)), a pioneer of Icelandic sculpture. In addition to his works exhibited inside the museum, a sculpture garden outside contains many of his monumental works.
Reebok Fitness & Supermarket is 5 minute walk away from the apartment.
Cleaning service is included.
If any information needed you can always talk to the host, she will provide it to you with pleasure.
I have 2 small dogs who are not in the apartment but in the house and they use the garden with the apartment :)

There is no smoking inside, if you smoke, you can find an ashtray with lid on it outside that you can use.
if there is no one in the house to accept the key when you leave you can leave it on the kitchen table for me.
Sydämelliset kiitokset Rosa! Asuin asunnossa kolmen kuukauden ajan ja viihdyin todella hyvin. Asunto oli siisti, rauhallinen ja sieltä löytyi kaikki tarvisemani. Rosan kanssa oli helppo asioida, hyvin ystävällinen isäntäperhe sekä hassut koirat. Sijainti on hieman syrjässä keskustasta, mutta bussilla pääsi kulkemaan kätevästi. Asuin yksin joten tilaa oli riittävästi, mutta neljälle saattaa olla ahdas. Ainut miinus asunnossa on hieman korkea hinta.
Rosa was a great host. The apartment came with some tea. Plenty of space for two. Her two little chihuahuas were a bit nippy but they're ok. Overall a great place to keep a home base for Reykjavik.
- Nice location
- Not in downtown
- Close to the bus
- Close to grocery and liquor store
- If you have a car both highway and town are close.
- Very quick walk to museum and botanic gardens and an outdoor geothermal heated pool.
This "cosy studio" was in fact only a garage with a double bed and a couch (who was really bad...) . And it's not suitable for 4 people! You can't stay at the apt, spend time in it, cooking, and eat together. And the location is not ideal, it's not in the center of Reykjavik, you have to take the car for enything. And what about the price!? It's very vey expensive! We stay another night in Reykjavik for only 75€ for a modern and big apt (90m2), in the main street of Reykjavik... So.... I'm disappointed.
This was a great little place. Conveniently located, close to everything, yet in a quiet safe area. We didn't get a chance to meet Rosa, but we were there for less than 24 hours. The place was very comfortable! It was a little smaller than I thought,but for such a short stay (and being in a city), I thought it was great! We really loved the towel warming rack next to the shower too! That was really neat! We didn't need to wash clothes or really do anything other than sleep, but there is a cool little washer there and it seemed like everything needed was provided!
My husband and I spent 5 nights in Rosa's studio apartment and had a comfortable stay. It was in a nice, quiet, safe neighbourhood and was a clean and modern room. Though I never met Rosa, she was quick to respond to our emails and was accommodating with our late arrival and late checkout. We met her husband briefly who was very nice and helped to fix the internet connection when it was down for a few days.
The location was a bit further from downtown then I would have liked for a first time visit to Reykjavik. It was about a 30minute walk to the main area, or a 15 minute bus ride (bus stop nearby, comes every 30 minutes). The pool and park close by were nice and close though. And many of the excursions you can book from downtown will pick you up at the nearby City Hostel instead of going downtown.
Since we stayed for 5 nights it would have been nice if there was a coffee maker, hairdryer, and perhaps some information left for us when we arrived outlining the area with some tips or useful details.
Other than that, we had a lovely stay.
Rosa was not at home when we arrived. We didn't find the key in the box she wrote will be. We were lucky her little daughter around 10 years o;d was to help us. We didn't have hot water in the bethroom and didn't receive the small breakfest that we read she is giving. The apartment is nice but smaller than we saw ay yhe pictures.
