Best location possible. You will find this extremely cosy studio apartment in the down town Reykjavík area. Simple, quiet and cheap but close to everything you need. Restaurants/cafés, shopping, galleries, museums, swimmingpool and much more in walking distance.
A wonderful, totally new renovated, perfectly located, artistic studio apartment down town Reykjavík.
We offer you a new renovated studio apartment for 2 persons. The apartment comes with a wonderfully comfy double bed, small cosy kitchen, a private bathroom in the corridor and free wireless internet. The room is located on Þórsgata, 5 minutes from Laugarvegur, the main shopping/dining/wining street in Reykjavík/Iceland. You are close to all the action but without the larm from the weekend night life.
When you enter the room you come in to the living area where you have the kitchen on your left hand, a small dining table in the middle of the room and a sleeping sofa. On your right you then have the sleeping area where you have a great big double bed (2x2 meters), cloth hanger, a small drawer and a full body size mirror. The room is cosy, bright and spacious. There is a small, completely new, kitchen facility and on top of that you are practically living next door to all the best restaurants in town.

Interaction with Guests
I am available during the day time via phone or internet. I however live outside Reykjavík so my co-host will help with any problems on location.
I use the apartment my self every time I am in Reykjavík (once a month or more) and I simply love it. The energy in the apartment it self is great, the neighbours are nice, and the neighbourhood is quiet which is amazing when you know that the Reykjavík night live is only 5 minutes away.
I love using it to just stay in, relax, have a glass of wine with friends, meditate or have a romantic night with my boyfriend. It is warm over the winder and easy to air out during summer.
Everything is in a walking distance, including Reykjavík busterminal
The age limit is 18 years old. There is no smoking inside and no loud partying after 22:00. There are other people living in the building and we respect them.
Appartement super bien placé en plein centre de Reykjavik , quartier très calme. L'appartement est fonctionnel et propre par contre la salle de bain est au rez de chaussé .
Easy and convenient check in and check out procedure. The apartment is quiet, clean, warm and ideally located. The bed is truly comfortable and the blinds/curtains were sufficient for keeping out the late evening sun. We had a wonderful trip and much is owed to this great apartment.
This was a nice, efficient apartment in a GREAT location. One thing to note is the bathroom downstairs- not a huge deal, but something to be aware of. Overall we were very pleased with our stay. Bjort and her local co-host were quick to answer questions and helpful with instructions on how to use the laundry etc.
Apartment was clean, bright, fully equipped, and very conveniently located. Despite a snag at check-in due to poor cell reception, communication with Björt and gaining access to the apartment was very straightforward. Recommended!
Björt's place was an excellent base for several days in Reykjavik. It is bright and cheery, tastefully decorated and comfortable. The location can't be beat, quiet, but easily walkable to all central attractions, through interesting neighborhoods. Björt made my checkin easy even though it was on short notice; she was always reachable by cell phone, and very helpful and pleasant. The bathroom/shower is down one flight of stairs next to the laundry room, which was no problem. Very convenient to have a washing machine was available which worked well. Laundry dried quickly on lines in the laundry room. I really enjoyed my stay and hope to stay here again when I next visit Reykjavik.
Beautiful and cosy little place in the heart of Reykjavik! We felt like home from moment one. Björt was helpful, friendly and nice. We loved her studio!
