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 listing for Margret's apartment was extremely accurate. The space was adequate for the four of us. The neighborhood was quiet with many shops and restaurants within walking distance.
The location of the apartment is good indeed--right in the city center, still two streets away from the crowded area. The supermarket is close-by as well. The apartment itself has comfortable beds.
The host was very kind and reliable. We had a small issue with one of the radiators and it was fixed right away.
All in all, we've enjoyed our stay.
Margaret's home was the perfect spot for us in Reykjavik! As advertised, it really was the perfect location, within walking distance to everything on the main street in town. Everything was clean and comfortable, and Margaret was always responsive and helpful with any questions we had - highly recommend!
Die Lage der Unterkunft ist prima! Margret hilfsbereit, freundlich,kompetent und hat immer gerade auf Fragen geantwortet. Wir fühlten uns da aufgehoben.
Die Wohnung sauber, alles was man brauchte war vorhanden, Gästehandtücher, frisch bezogene Betten ua.
Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt. auf den Bildern erschien die Wohnung etwas grösser. Es gab ein paar Kleinigkeiten, die diese Unterkunft noch attraktiver machen würden, eine kleine Auffrischung täte der Wohnung gut, es klemmte da und dort etwas. Ev ein paar Dinge ersetzen.
Auch hatten wir etwas Mühe unsere Kleider zu verstauen. In einem Zimmer gab es keine Möglichkeit die Kleider zu versorgen. Der Schrank im Korridor wär zwar günstig, aber da lagen private Sachen und im andern Zimmer hatte es zwar Bügel für die Kleider und auch Platz, aber kein geeignete Kommode oder Schrank um auch Sachen legen zu können. Für Kurzaufenthalte kein Problem, aber so ne Woche, da möcht ich mich einrichten können.
Aber eben das sind Details und nice to have. Die Unterkunft war gut und wir waren zufrieden. Das ist das Wichtigste!
Danke Margret für alles!
Liebe Grüsse Sibylla und Brigitte
Great location and very nice apartement.
Great communication with Margret and after a misunderstanding ( no keys and no beforehand cleaning ) Margret solved the matter quickly and gave us % 50 discount.
A pleasant and well-located apartment, very true to the listing. The flat was clean, quiet, and well-equipped. Exactly what we needed!
Comfortable small space in Reykjavic. We only spent one night there, we needed a place before heading back. So we didn't really experience the apartment as such, because we weren't around.
We knew the neighborhood a bit and it's really in the best place. Very close to the biggest shopping street with loads of restaurants and bars etc., but still in a small street so it's not noisy.
A good value place!
