Hi! My name is Solveig.
I live in the center of Reykjavik, the capital city of Iceland.
Let me know if you have any questions.

We spent a fantastic New Year's Eve break in Reykjavik in Solveig's lovely apartment. There was five of us in total, 2 couples and one single. The apartment is really nice, spacious with excellent cooking facilities. Bedrooms are well sized with comfortable beds. Note that the one single bedroom is indeed a child's bedroom as shown in photos so if an adult is staying there it's comfortable but rather strange :-). Nice small balcony on the second floor with great views over Reykjavik (firework watching at New Year's Eve was spectacular).
Location is good, quiet residential area, 15 minute easy walk into the town center. In the cold it feels a little longer but still manageable. If hiring a car (highly recommended for sightseeing at your own pace) the apartment is easy to get on and off the motorway.
Lastly the host, Solveig was very friendly and welcoming, providing useful information, hints and tips and suggested excursions. We felt right at home.
Overall would recommend this apartment due to its close proximity to town and comfortable and homely feel.
Solveig was a gracious and kind host. The apartment was clean, adorable, stylish and had great views. Walkable to the water and downtown - downtown is a bit further of a walk than we had hoped but given that we could cab everywhere so easily it wasn't a problem at all. I would definitely recommend my friends to stay here if they ever came to Iceland.
The apartment is a cozy gem, more than big enough for 3+. The apartment is very close to town, 5-10min walk, but in a quiet neighborhood. The apartment is immaculate. Solveig was a wonderful hostess, ensuring we had everything we needed, and stayed in touch during our stay to ensure there were no issues. She helped us with dinner reservations and was always so helpful! Wonderful experience!
This place was great! The beds were SO comfy, the kitchen had everything we could possibly need for cooking and washing up, and the location was great. Lots of couches for lounging, and a beautiful view of the Northern Lights when they decided to show themselves. Solveig was easy to get in contact with, and even hooked us up with a phone with SIM card for our time in Iceland. Wonderful experience!
Thanks Solveig! We had such a great time staying at Solveig's flat - we decided to stay an extra week! Thankfully she was super flexible and patient with us. Highly recommend her flat!
What a wonderful visit! My friends and I were looking for a nice place to stay for a week. This apartment perfectly suited our needs. The home is tastefully decorated and very comfy. The location is excellent. You're just a few blocks away from the town center. Having access to a nicely appointed kitchen meant that we could take a nice break from constantly dining out. Most importantly, Sólveig is a wonderful host. She was very responsive to our questions / requests.
I couldn't have possibly asked for a better airbnb experience. Highly recommended.
Rigtig fin og stor lejlighed i downtown Reykjavik. Vi boede 4 voksne mennesker og en baby i en uge, og der var rigeligt plads. Dejligt stort køkken med de arbejdsredskaber man kan forvente. Solveig var meget gæstfri, og hun satte ingen begrænsninger, hvilken var rigtig lækkert!
Lejligheden ligger 5 minutters gang fra gågaden i Reykjavik, og ligger tæt på busstation så man nemt kan komme omkring.
Alt i alt en super lejlighed til en ferie i Island/Reykjavik for både et par og familie.
Solveig is a fantastic host with true hospitality. She had excellent information for us regarding the neighborhood and the popular tourist activities around Iceland. The flat is conveniently located to downtown without actually being downtown, and is nicely decorated, spacious and clean. It's also quiet- we never heard the neighbors. Additionally, Solveig was very accommodating regarding check in and check out. I'd highly recommend this to anyone looking to stay in Reykjavik.
We had such a fantastic stay at Solveig's wonderful apartment. I was traveling with my family (5 people/ 4 beds) and everyone slept comfortably in a bed. The apartment was bright and clean and it was a short walk from all the action downtown.
Solveig also has a great kitchen, we ate breakfast there every morning and cooked lunch and dinner there several times.
Sólveig's apartment worked out very well for us. It comfortably fit three adults and two kids, and the kids really enjoyed having their own space on the top floor. The walk to the city center wasn't a problem, and the on-street parking is plentiful for those who choose to rent a car. We would definitely consider renting this apartment again when we return to Reykjavik.
