The Apartment: This colorful and cozy apartment has everything you could possibly need when staying downtown Reykjavik. It is fully furnished with hardwood floors. One double bedroom with a queen size, comfy tempur mattress bed that sleeps two grown ups, (for those with back problems) and open closets. A bright living room with a tv, books and furniture, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom, as well as a laundry room where you can clean and dry your clothes. The shower is also located in the laundry room. There is also free wireless internet throughout the apartment. The apartment comes with bedding and towels, soap and shampoo, as well as a list of our favourite things to go and see in the area. It has access to a small but lovely garden with a patio to sit and enjoy the midnight sun. A fun fact about our street is that it has received an award from the Reykjavík city council for being one the most family friendly and coziest street in the downtown area.
Location: The apartment is situated on the ground floor and is in the absolute heart of downtown Reykjavik and is in very short walking distance from all the main sights in the downtown area. Very close to the famous Hallgrím’s church (5min. walk), the main shopping street Laugavegur(10 min walk), the Reykjavik city pond( 10 min walk), The renowned Einar Jónsson art museum(2 min walk), and a beautiful park (7min walk) just down the street to name a few. The area is also filled with charming and cozy restaurants only a few steps away. On Laugavegur (10min walk) you also have all the nicest bars in town, as well as a supermarket close by (7 min walk) and the city’s bus station and a geothermal swimming pool is only about 15 min. away by foot. Even though it’s as central you can get, it’s located in a family friendly neighbourhood and not noisy at all.
The drive to Reykjavik from Keflavik airport should take around 45 minutes. There is a Flybus that can take you to town once you arrive. It´s destination is the bus depot BSI and the apartment is only about 15 min. away if walking, but about 3 minutes by car. There is free parking outside the house.

Björn Halldór and Kristína.
No smoking in the apartment, no loud parties and please be respectful of our neighbours. Be nice and have a nice stay.
Was a fantastic location and a wonderful house to stay in. All of the major attractions in Reykjavik were within walking distance.
We hired a car and there was plenty of free parking out the front of his house. Bjorn's father, who lives upstairs, went out of his way to help us out and make our stay most enjoyable.
Would stay here again and definitely reccommend.
A great base in Reykjavik. Central location and comfortable lodgings. Bed was very comfortable and the kitchen fully equipped for self catering. Would definitely stay again for future visits.
Björn was a really friendly host and helpful. He and his family help us in any situation. It was really great to stay in his apartment. The Apartment was clean, friendly and close to the centrum in Reykjavik.
I hope we come back anytime.
This was such a great location. You are a 7 minute walk from the bus station where all the excursions to the glaciers/blue lagoon leave from but you are also in the heart of the town, 2 minutes from the Hallgrímskirkja church and downtown Laugevugur (bars/restaurants). It was the perfect base to explore Reykjavik from. Really warm and cosy all the time! Loved it.
Very nice apartment at a great location! It was clean and with lots of space. Lovely and cozy kitchen! We would definitely recommend this apartment.
Absolutely fantastic! The location could not be better. The flat is very comfortable and Bjorn is a warm and friendly host. Had a great time and will go back with pleasure.
This apartment was absolutely fantastic for our 3 night stay in Reykjavik. We were on our honeymoon & the space was perfect for a couple - cozy & comfortable with everything we needed. The bed was incredibly comfortable especially. The location was really convenient & we were able to walk downtown no problem. There is a grocery store nearby as well. It is a short drive to many different thermal pools, which we recommend going to every day!!
Björn was really helpful when we arrived & then left us to setlle in. We would absolutely recommend staying here - we had a great experience!
