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)

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 :)

Great apartment, american style adapters included, kitchen had plenty of space, one of the best beds I've ever slept in.
Location is a little far from the center, but still a great tourist location.
Absolutly awesome!!! Could not have picked a better airbnb. Remember, walk out the door, go left, 1 st left is the Main Street. You are that close, so so to walking downtown. And awesome hot water in public houses due to Iceland's use of geo thermal power so take a HOT HOT shower they feel great.. Market within a block for eggs and what not. Coffee shops a block. Great stay !
Leiligheten har en flott beliggenhet med umiddelbar nærhet til butikker, kafeer, restauranter og severdigheter. Selve leiligheten er i grei stand, og passer for inntil 4 personer. Noen problemer med belysningen, men det var ikke noe stort problem. Det var praktisk med nøkkelboks utenfor leiliheten, og vi fikk svært raskt svar om at vi fikk leie leiligheten.
The most important thing to us was location, and this place is perfectly located. Minutes walk from all of downtown Reykjavik, we parked our car outside and didn't move it again until we left town. Margret had good communication prior to us arriving, but didn't respond to a question about replacement light bulbs for some that were out (we found some bulbs in an upper cabinet and replaced them ourselves). To be fair, I only sent her a message, didn't try calling or texting. We had a couple of issues with one non-functioning radiator and a slow draining shower, but nothing major and didn't make a big deal about getting them fixed while we were there. Overall, the apartment was clean and served the purpose we were after, which was a warm home base for exploring this fantastic city. If you're looking for a place and location is your main selling point, this is the place for you.
Margret's place is in an excellent location. Very close to everything thing and simple to get in. The use of the lockbox for the keys makes it less troublesome to coordinate arrival and departure times, which was nice. The place itself is decent though a bit shabby in spots. There were some issues with the lighting which Margret offered to remedy, and which weren't deal-breakers, but were slight bummers. In my honest opinion, if you're used to roughing it and just need a place to crash, Margret's apartment works perfectly. If you'd like something a bit more cozy, I would consider perhaps somewhere else.
