Audur was a wonderful host! She was very thoughtful and organized to accommodate our arrival. The apartment was true to the description and the neighborhood was perfect. She's only a block from Hallgrimskirkja chapel, and so close to some fantastic shops and restaurants. Keep a look out for her extremely friendly cat, Skotta, whom you may find snuggled up on your feet in the middle of the night or wandering the streets of Reykjavik in the afternoon!
Auður's apartment is in a fantastic location with many great things in walking distance, and we had everything we needed for our stay. Since we were arriving when she wasn't home, she made arrangements for us to get in, and we ended up meeting her in the evening after dinner. The room is a nice size and quite comfortable. We were only there for one night, but would book with her again for sure!
Auður was a fantastic host and very friendly. We arrived mid-morning and were greeted by Skotta the super kisa (kitty)! The directions for finding the house and room are very clear. The room was clean and ready to go when we arrived. Auður was very accommodating, kind, and genuine. She showed us what amenities were nearby (highly recommend Reykjavik Roasters across the square). The house is in a superb location for all things Reykjavik, we walked everywhere except to Laugardalslaug (Free with the city pass and a great time, if only for the waterslide) which is a quick #14 bus (also free with city pass) away.
Definitely get the 24hr city pass if you want to see some museums. Must see's are the Settlement Museum and the National Museum (if you like history). The National Gallery is fine (only partly open when we were there so there's that...), but the massive 3d topographic map of iceland in city hall is better (and free). The hotdogs at Bæjarins Bestu are really good and pretty cheap (the line goes fast so don't worry about big lines, credit cards are accepted). We think they are better than the Hot Dog House across from Einar Ben. One of the best places for food and drinks is Íslenski Barinn, try the schnapps, but the icelandic vodka was the smoothest we've ever had. But a MUST have is the orange flamed Nois Sour cocktail at Pizza with No Name below Mikkeller and Friends (which also had a friendly bartender and great beers on tap). If you get them confused as we did, it's ok, just go visit the other when your drink is dry and strike up a conversation with other watering hole passer-bys.
For a non-golden circle day trip away from Reykjavik we highly recommend heading north to Borgarnes to visit the Settlement Museum (knocks the Saga museum in Reykjavik out of the park). Also ask about the app for your phone with a self-guided audio tour of the town (~1 hr) going to various locations where key events in Egil's Saga took place. If you have never read Egil's Saga, do so now. It's a long one, but well worth the story telling. And it will help during your visit to the museum in Borgarnes.
We had a lovely time staying at Audur's little apartment. The location couldn't have been better, and we had everything we needed to enjoy our two nights here. We were on different schedules from our host so we unfortunately did not meet, but she left us clean towels and notes with all the necessary information, and we spent some time with her very friendly cat. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!
Audur était vraiment une hôte adorable, confiante et généreuse. L'appartement dans lequel elle nous a accueillies est encore mieux que ce à quoi nous nous attendions. C'est un endroit unique dans lequel on se sent comme chez soi. Quand je retournerai en Islande, je ne manquerai pas de revenir chez Audur.
Wonderful location, beautiful apartment, would love to visit again some time! :)
Audurs appartement is comfortable, you find everything you need. The location is great, near Laugavegur with restaurants, supermarkets and sights.
Audurs Wohnung war für mich ein Traum: zentral, liebevoll gestaltet, mit vielen hilfreichen Tipps von Audur. Natürlich, man muss Katzen moegen und lernen, wie mit dem Schlüssel und der Dusche umzugehen ist
Audur's apartment is a little bit messy but very special, somehow it shows her personality and we liked it. She wasn't there while we were staying in her apartment (only the cat was here to welcome and stay with us) but she had left notes for us and was very responsive when we contacted her (we would have loved to meet her in person).
The location, near the Reykjavik Roasters coffee shop and the Laugavegur street, was perfect. Very central and convenient.
We had such a beautiful stay at Audur's home. A cosy, traditional Icelandic house, the living area and bedroom were wonderfully comfortable. We became great friends with the cat, Skotta, and found Audur was very helpful when it came to getting to know Reykjavik and Iceland and even had a few stories up her sleeve. It goes without saying that the location was perfect. This is the place to stay if you want to get a real feel for living in Reykjavik.
Audur (i wish my keyboard would have the letter to properly spell her name) and her boyfriend were fun to have guests, ver easy going and easy to talk to. They were also kind to leave with me a home made "zacusca" which they had from a friend back in the North of Romania. I strongly recommend them
Audur and her boyfriend were very friendly and communicative, they enjoyed staying at our place and told us they would have stayed longer. They were very interested in our culture, which we appreciated a lot. We were happy to have them as guests in our apartment cause they appreciated our location, they asked us about some "design" details seen in the apartment, also we talked about the fishes :) they are very open and talkative, I enjoyed that a lot. So to sum up: definitely recommended guests.
