About this listing
This cozy apartment is conveniently located 2 minutes from Laugavegur, the main street in downtown Reykjavík. It is a 48 square meter (520 sq. ft.) one bedroom apartment with a spacious living room, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with a shower and a balcony overlooking a tranquil garden area.

It is located on Snorrabraut which intersects the bustling Laugavegur street just a few meters away, giving easy access to the city center and tranquility in the night. The beautiful Hallgrímskirkja church is 7 minutes away and the lively street of Skólavörðustígur as well, where you’ll find plenty of design shops, trendy café’s and all sorts of quality restaurants (we recommend the Noodle station and Ostabúðin for gourmet and cheap lunches). The old geothermal swimming pool Sundhöll Reykjavíkur is literally just across the street, where you can enjoy their outdoor hot-tubs and indoor swimming pool. The main bus station, Hlemmur, is only 3 minutes away, giving easy access to the entire Reykjavík area. The bus terminal, BSÍ, where shuttle buses from Keflavík arrive, is within easy walking distance (around 15 minutes.) A low-price grocery store is just 5 minutes away.
The apartment was beautiful and in a nice part of town. Beds were comfy, kitchen was full of useful stuff.
My friends and I very much enjoyed our stay here. Getting to the place was very simple - keys were left for us at BSI to pick up behind the counter. The apartment itself is a short walk away from the station and close to everything in downtown Reykjavik. It was very clean, spacious, and comfortable. Clear instructions were left for us on the dining table. Great communication overall. Bed and futon both comfortable. Thank you for our very good first experience with AirBnB!
Super gute Kommunikation, schnelle Antworten.
Zentrale Lage in der Hauptstadt zwischen Haupteinkaufsstraße & zentralem Busbahnhof. Der Minibalkon ist mit der Nachbarwohnung zu teilen. Für deutsche Verhältnisse ein eher abgewohntes Haus. Aber das ist eben Island. Dafür sind die Menschen pragmatischer, hilfsbereiter, unvoreingenommener & freundlicher. Wohnung ist recht hellhörig aber für bis zu vier Personen geeignet, jedoch schmales Doppelbett (ca. 140 cm) und Klappcouch eher für max. zwei kleinere Kinder.
Viggi and Kristrún are great hosts for your stay in Reykjavik, Iceland. Allthough we never met them in person, they were always (digitally) available for questions on our part.
On arrival the apartment was clean and instructions for WIFI and other appliances were on the kitchen table.
The apartment has everything you need for your stay and the Snorrabraut is perfectly located for your daily discovery of Reykjavik.
We really enjoyed our stay, and if we ever come back to Iceland, we will definitely try to stay at Viggi's place..
We (4 friends) rented this place for our 2 first nights in Iceland. The flat is really well located to discover Reykjavik, close to the main bus station (BSI) and next to the main shopping street. The accomodation is clean, well organized and all the basics are here. Getting and leaving the keys was really convenient. Also, communication with Viggi was pleasant and dynamic. In a few words, this flat and his owner are perfect to discover Reykjavik :)
We had a three-day stopover in Reykjavik and was very pleased with having the apartment as a base for our excursions. Location is great both for the BSI busterminal (where the flybus arrives) and the city center. The apartment is nice and clean and has all the basics you need. Communication with Viggi before and during the stay was really fine, and there is great flexibility on how to get and return the key for the apartment.
