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.

  • Good place with a very nice host! Rosa and her family are always kind and helpful. You are always welcomed. The room is small, but perfect for one person. The location is very quiet and peaceful. To go downtown there are two bus stations nearby. I would definitely recommend this accomodation, it was a great final of my last days in lovely Iceland!

  • Die Unterkunft war einfach, aber völlig ausreichend und sauber. Die Gatsgeber waren freundlich und es war eine nette Atmosphäre im Haus.
    Kann ich sehr gut weiterempfehlen!

  • Rosa and her family were really kind to us in letting us stay at their home. The location was pretty ideal for exploring Reykjavik (if you are up for a nice walk into town, probably 45 minutes.. but we saw there were buses nearby as well). We were actually staying in their daughter's room, but they were kind to leave everything out for us and let us know some things to explore in the city. We were also able to make friends with other travelers in the house. Good spot to save money on lodging and still get to explore the city.

  • Wonderful host! very nice house. Everything was clean, comfortable, and safe. Rosa's husband and daughter are very kind and helpful. I would definitely recommend Rosa's room for a trip in this incredible country.

  • I start with the positive:
    -bed was very comfy
    -room was very close to downtown.

    Negative:
    -they were doing construction on the lower level of the house so it was quite noisy (even early in the morning) and hard to sleep
    -the dogs were not very friendly toward people and would attack if left out around the house
    -not clean, the floor were very dirty and there were dirty dishes piled everywhere in the kitchen

  • Rosa is wonderful and so kind. The house really felt like a home. While it was a bit out of the city center, it was quite easy to reach by bus from the BSI Terminal and then was great to have a view of the water and Videy Island when we walked out of the house each morning. She was also always smiling and super helpful, which made our time there go by so quickly. Thank you so much, Rosa! It was my first time using Airbnb and you were really wonderful and welcoming! I'm going to tell everyone who comes to Reykjavik to be sure to (email hidden)!

  • Easy to work with. I would work with Rosa again. A pleasant experience.

  • Rósa & Pétur are a very kind & helpful couple that showed interest in giving us travel tips during our stay (like NOT booking for a whale wacthing tour in Reykjavik BUT in Húsavik!).
    We stayed with them twice: 3 days in a room (very comfy double bed but in a bit small room )& 2 days in the appartment downstairs (modern and with all you need: microwave, plasma TV, oven.) The location involves either to catch a bus (nº12) to or a 45 min. walk to the centre of the city,which for us was a bit of a put-off. The house was more o less tidy but it needed a quite deep cleaning (photos shown are not (email hidden) (home) to stay with an Icelandic family .

  • I stayed with Rosa and Pétur for four nights. The house is easy to find just off the main coast road and scrupulously clean. The couple are friendly and go out of their way to welcome guests and make them feel at home. I had several chats with Pétur about his work and when the time came for me to leave Reykjavík, he took me and my cases to the bus station on a Sunday morning before the local buses started running, which was certainly much appreciated. Very nice and very convenient. Highly recommended.

  • Le système pour récupérer la clé est pratique sachant qu'on est arrivés vers 00h30 ! La chambre était propre. La maison bien située.
