SUPERB LOCATION FOR EXPLORING THE CITY – FEW MINUTES FROM THE MAIN ATTRACTIONS CITY HAS TO OFFER
Our apartment located zip code 101 downtown in Reykjavik, the best possible location, free parking in front of the apartment.
Even though the apartment is in this great location in the heart of the city the street is quiet so guests may sleep without any noise from the main streets.
The 60 m2 apartment consist of an open kitchen and living room, nice bathroom with shower and 2 bedrooms. Both bedrooms offer queen size beds, although one is a bit larger then the other in size, the apartment is considered spacious for 2 but can easily suit 4-5 guests.
The kitchen is fully equipped with all the kitchen utensils you need to feel right at home and you should be able to make a nice coffe, breakfast, lunch or dinner. Also there will be some condiments, such as sugar, oil, pasta, spices, coffee etc. There is Senseo coffe machine so guests can make themselves great coffe to start their day in the morning. Also included in the price is TV, high-speed wifi, bedding and towels along with the free parking in front of the apartment and streets nearby. There is also a dishwasher in the kitchen.
The check out time is at 12:00 noon and check-in is at 14:00 or later if you wish. This is the general rule but we will take other times into consideration if requested. A lot of flights land early in the morning and if there are no guests checking out you may go straight to the apartment in most cases.
The apartment has a superb location for exploring the city. It is within walking distance of all major attractions.
The apartment is located right next to Skólavörðustígur (30 sec. walking) which has become one of the most popular streets in the city with a great variety of restaurants, designer shops, cafés and bars. On Skólavörðustígur you will also find a nice grocery store (45 sec. walking)
-Laugavegur, known as the main shopping street in Iceland also has a great variety of bars, restaurants, cafés, Icelandic design and gift stores. (4 min. walk)
-Hallgrímskirkja is a church which stands 74.5 meter tall and is one of the landmarks of the city (2 min. walk)
-Sundhöllin is a really nice indoor swimming pool with outdoor hot pots and a sauna. This is a nice way to start the day or relax after a busy day in the city. (7 min. walking)

-The old harbor is about 10-15 minutes stroll down Skólavörðustíg or Laugavegur the main shopping streets. At the old harbor you can hop on whale watching tour or go sea angling. There are also museums, art galleries nestled in with quality fish restaurants as well as charming cafés.

How to get to the apartment:
The cheapest way from the airport is by Flybus airport shuttle. The Flybus is a direct connection to all arriving and departing flights at Keflavik airport. The Flybus departs from Keflavik Airport 35-40 minutes after each flight and the seats are always guaranteed.
Please find other information such as flybus prices on ((website hidden)) . The drive from the airport Keflavik to Reykjavik takes about 45 minutes. The Flybus stops at BSI which is about a 10 minute walk away from the apartment but the flybus does offer the option, for a little extra fee, to stop at Hotel Óðinsvé which is 1 minute walking from the apartment, so that would probably be the best option for people traveling with luggage.
We are very friendly and hospitable owners so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have further questions.
Look forward seeing you hopefully in Iceland :)

The location of this flat is absolutely outstanding - right next to 'the church'. Can't say enough how great a spot it is.
The flat is nice also - decent beds and reasonable space for 4 people (given that it is a city centre flat). There's just about enough cutlery and pots/pans etc.
The little food provided looked like leftovers from previous users so I wouldn't rely on getting anything in particular except tea, coffee and salt n pepper (we also had half a box of rice, can of baked beans, can of pasta sauce, a 3/4 tub of nutella, mostly empty jar of honey, salt, pepper, and about 20 garlic bulbs).
Wifi was great - fast and reliable. Heating seemed to be on 24/7 so the whole flat was very warm - great sometimes and other times seemed overpowering so we turned the radiators down and opened the windows.
Bedding and whatnot was clean, but the floor wasn't - it was covered in grit and sticky in places. Tried to hoover but it didn't help much.
All in all, a great place to stay and check out Reykjavik - would recommend.
We never met Margret, but she responded really quickly to our emails and provided very clear directions to her place.
The apartment is very nice, quiet, in a perfect location, really comfortable and well-furnished.
There is plenty of touristic booklets/flyers/maps and some helpful suggestions by Margret in the apartment.
Really lovely apartment in the heart of Reykjavik. We found the apartment really easily and it was perfect for our stay. Margaret left some helpful tips. The flat was very clean with comfortable beds. A stones throw from the main shopping streets. I would definitely stay here again when I come back to Iceland.
We arrived early Saturday morning and found the apartment very easily. The instructions for getting in were very clear and we couldn't believe how centrally located we were! Just steps from everything g in Ryekjavik! The place was very cute, clean and well appointed. There were towels, dishes, linens, etc. The instructions on the table were helpful. The beds were comfortable, the heat was just right. We felt at 'home'. We would love to stay there again if we return to Iceland. (We really really want to come back!)
We didn't use the television but it was nice to know it was there if we wanted to watch.
This was such a great experience, we just wished we had more time! On the day we left, we had to rush out of the apartment and didn't have all the time we needed.
The kids were happy and comfortable and we felt so lucky to have found this place on airbnb!
Awesome location! Close vicinity to the main shopping streets and also many good restaurants just around the corner! Margret also provided very clear directions to her place. She was helpful and also provided recommendations.
We had a lovely time in Margret's place - perfect spot, clean and spacious. It was a short walk to the main shopping streets with loads of great places to eat and drink nearby. Margret was easy to get hold of and it was no trouble getting to the apartment. It helped make our Iceland stay unforgettable.
This is a perfect apartment situated in a perfect location. Clean and comfortable with everything you could possilbly need for the duration of your stay. Thanks Margret, we will be back in 2015
