About this listing
Open planned apartment with seperate bedroom.
Cosy apartment with a great view
Bathroom with shower and bathtub. There is a laundry room in the basement of the building, but you have to register on a schedule to get to use it like everybody else in the building. The building is very clean and well taken care of. The apartment is open planned so it has open the kitchen towards the living room. Also there are sunscreen curtains to block out the icelandic summer sun that is like many know on 24 hours a day.
Balcony with a beautiful view.
East side of Reykjavik, five minutes with bus to Hlemmur downtown. Situaded next to Laugardalur Park. Supermarkets, restaurants, healthcare, spa and sport centre across the street.
In the bedroom is a queen size bed . Laugardalur Park is just five minutes away with it's botanical garden, family park and in the far end of Laugardalur about ten minutes walk away there is Laugardalur swimming pool.
There is a small balcony and a dining table and chairs in the living room for at lest four people. The bathroom is rather small but a has a tub and a good space for your shampoo, makeup and such things.
There is a good closet space in the bedroom for clothes.
I would rather like it that people smoke outside but it´s not banned to smoke inside, This is a quite apartment building so no screaming or big parties though it is ok to have a small dinner party.
The flat was as described and had everything we needed. It's close to a nice park with a zoo and other facilities. To take day tours outside of Reykjavik, there are shuttles that collect not far from the flat: 10-15 minutes walk. There's also a small shopping mall with a 7-11 just on the other side of the street.
Johanna was very welcoming and gave us tips of what we should do during our stay. She's flexible on times of checking in and out which meant we could check in in the morning and leave in the afternoon, affectively adding one extra day for our stay.
One possible negative would be that the flat wasn't close to downtown. It takes a bus or taxi trip to get there. It was fine for us, but might be a problem for other people. A flat in the city centre would cost a lot more probably.
The host canceled this reservation 8 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
It smelled a a wee bit smoky and the TV didn't pick up any channels, but the place was comfortable and clean--and Johanna super friendly and awesome about responding quickly to our same-day, last-minute request. Takk, Johanna! :)
I stayed at Johanna's apartment 23-27 OCT 12. Very good view of Reykjavik from the 6th floor of the apartment building. Fully equipped apartment, especially the kitchen, just bring your own food. Single bed inn the bedroom, bathroom with shower in the bathtub, living room with a couple of couches, wireless internet access, dining table and a small balcony. Two (2) bus stops (bus numbers 19 and 14) and a shopping center are 100 meters away. Take bus number 19 to BSI and you can take several bus tours from there. Restaurant and a 24 hour convenience store are in the shopping center. Overall, a very good place to stay for one person for a week or two to see Reykjavik.
