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 in included.

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.
Rosa and her husband were nice hosts.
The house is close to the bus stop, 20 min. from the city center.
The room was big but it wasn't the one I had chosen and the bathroom was somewhat dirty and messy.
Thank you for your review, I am sorry that the bathroom was messy but we clean it every day even 2 times per day. It can be messy if other people do not respect it and put their things where they do not belong.
The bathroom is old so it can look dirty because the floor is little scratched but I know it is clean because we clean it like I said 2 times each day, I usually clean it once and my husband also cleans it once per day.
I am planning on making new bathroom this winter so if you come back next year then you can see that result :)
Thank you for your stay and hope to see you on your next trip.
all the best
Accommodation was satisfactory. As we were out most of the time we had little face to face contact with Rosa. However we did have a problem with accommodation booked for later in our stay and Rosa dealt with it immediately via phone.
Rosa and her family made my experience in Reykjavik very comfortable. They are a little farther from the city center than I anticipated- almost 45 minutes walking. However, the room was very big and comfortable for a great price.
Inderdaad een cozy kamer, in een rustig huis (in een zijstraatje), met een goed bed. Een wat kleine maar voldoende badkamer. Leuke gastvrouw en man. Jammer dat een ontbijt niet mogelijk was, alleen koffie en thee.
Nous avons été agréablement surpris car nous étions en fait dans un studio . le coin est très calme a proximité d'un parc et d'une grande piscine .
