The Space

This apartment is a little gem and it´s located downtown at the chic district of Thingholt. It´s very close to all the bars, cafés, restaurants, museums and the shops without disturbing a good night sleep. Only 6 minutes walks to city center. This one bedroom apartment can accommodate 2-4 persons. It has a fully equipped kitchen, wireless internet, tv, washing machine, south balcony. The check out time is 12:00pm and the check in time is 15:00 pm.
If you want to be sure to get in early in the morning I recommend you to buy the night. Only the day before you arrive I can give 50% off the night if the night is free and alter your reservation.
I will give you the keys when you arrive and when you leave you put the keys to my mailbox dowstairs. The doorbelll is in the middle of 5 Gista ehf., if you take the fly bus you can buy the ticket all the way to the nearest hotel Frón at Laugavegur 22a, and walk to Bergstaðastræti 8, 101 Reykjavík the check-in time is 15:00h or little later if wished.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Helga was extremely helpful; providing us with everything that we needed.
    The apartment was clean and comfortable; in a perfect central Reykjavik location.
    We wish we could have spent more time there.

  • Helga graciously introduced us to her spacious, clean, bright apartment, exactly as advertised. It is a haven in downtown Reykjavik, and, just as she said, "the best" Konditerei in the city is right up the street. Helga takes great care in making sure that her place is well cared-for; it's that sense of care that makes you feel right at home. The neighborhood is central; a short walk and you're at the heart of the best artisanal shops and cafes. The flybus (and touring bus) terminal is just a short jaunt in the opposite direction. We felt lucky to have found this "cozy" nook.

  • Helga and her husband were excellent hosts. I had a restful stay at their apartment, and I highly recommend them to anyone who wants a cozy, comfortable space to stay and enjoy Reykjavik. A+++ :)

  • Helga and Snorri are the perfect hosts. They made sure that we had instructions for all utilities and quickly helped if we needed assistance. Almost like being at a hotel! Recommended host to anyone travelling to Reykjavik.

  • Location of the apartment was perfect. Helga was most gracious to meet us and give us a brief tour and orientation to the city. The apartment was lovely...comfortable and charming. I would definitely recommend staying there over a hotel. A small grocery store was at the end of the street and we enjoyed cooking at the apartment.

  • The apartment was perfect, coz, clean and comfortable and the location couldn't have been better- next door to a supermarket, and only a couple of blocks away from the main shopping street. Helga was great to deal with in organising the apartment, I hope to be able to stay again in the future.

  • We had an amazing stay in Helga's charming apartment. The apartment is spacious and within a short walk to all of the best restaurants and bars. It was the perfect location for all of the Airwaves festivities. Helga was a kind, helpful host who drove us to pick up our Iceland Airwaves passes and even took us to what is now our favorite Reykjavik spot Kex Hostel. Thank you, Helga for allowing us to continue our love affair with magical Iceland.

  • Helga's place is very nice. It is clean and has everything that you need (kitchen appliances, blow dryer etc.) Her place is in a great location. The bars and restaurants are all walking distance. There is also easy parking for free outside her place until 10am which was great since we had a car. We really enjoyed our stay and we would recommend Helga's place to anyone who is visiting Iceland!

  • Sehr angenehmer Aufenthalt in dieser Wohnung. Wir sind sehr spät angekommen (gegen 2:00) aber Helga hat uns an der Bushaltestelle abgeholt und die Stadt ein bisschen gezeigt.

    Die Wohnung selbst ist sehr zentral
    Eine Bäckerei und einen Supermarkt sind 1 Min zu Fuß von der Wohnung entfernt.
