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.

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 apartment was great, it's in a brilliant location perfect for exploring Reykjavik on foot. We didn't meet Margret but she provided really clear instructions about how to find the apartment and responded quickly to my email asking about parking.
I would definitely recommend staying here.
This was our favorite place to stay during our Iceland adventure. The place was clean, ideally located, and cheerful. Margret was very responsive via email and we were able to get settled despite our very late arrival. Wonderful stay overall!
I absolutely loved Reykjavik! This apartment topped it off by being lovely and in a perfect place to explore the city, while also being nice and quiet!
Great location within walking distance to many major shopping areas, restaurants and attractions. Very comfy, we spent a day just relaxing between excursions and found it very relaxing. Basic amenities were all great, with pod coffee maker, dishwasher, etc very much appreciated. Shower very tiny compared to what we are used to but this seemed endemic to Iceland, not the apartment! Margret was a good communicator and quick to respond to any questions. Very much recommend.
This was a great place to stay! It was easy walking distance to all the downtown attractions, as well as just 10min walk from the main bus stop. Most importantly, the beds were incredibly comfortable and the space was clean. I definitely recommend this space for 2-4 people.
