The Space

The apartment is in the heart of Reykjavik located at Skólavörðustígur that is the de-facto home of art and design shops in the city centre. Icelands oldest café, Kaffi Mokka is just across the street and Hallgrims church is at the other end of the street and can be seen from the balcony

The apartment is furnished with a fully equipped kitchen, living room, bathroom and washer and a free wi-fi.

There is a grocery store next door as well as bars, restaurants, cafés and shops within a few minutes walking distance

Guest Access

The address is Skólavörðustígur 10 and the entrance is from the parking lot and there is a souvenir store called Lundinn on the ground floor

Check in time is from 3pm – Check out time is not later than 11am

The Fly bus company Reykjavik Excursions can drop you off and pick you up by the apartment to and from the airport.
They also offer great selection of day tours
After you book you get a link to the companies website since airbnb hides all links and phone numbers until then

If you are renting a car (you only need one if you are planning a trip out of town) the apartment is next to a parking lot. Charging hours vary between zones but are usually from 9-18 Monday to Saturday, free on Sundays. Multi storey car parks are the cheapest option and can be found very close by. They are open from 7-24 every day

Getting Around

For those who are in awe of the beautiful Icelandic nature, the ocean is fairly close by, with a great shore where you can stroll whilst enjoying the view. There are also numerous hiking paths and other places of interest relatively close by if you have access to a car. I can help with rentals upon request.

One of the main hubs for public buses, Laekjartorg is only 4 minutes walk away

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
Hope to see you soon

Other Things to Note

Visitors to Iceland often ask why the hot water smells funny. This is because the hot and cold water come from two different sources. It is true that the hot water sometimes smells of sulfur, which is due to the geothermal origins of the hot water, making it excellent for bathing, but not drinking. The cold tap water on the other hand is a spring water and one of the best drinking water you can get and there is no need to buy bottled still water since it´s just the same
