It is a lovely apartment in the city centre - on the main shopping and restaurant street, Laugavegur. It is easy to get there from the airport and you are right in the heart of Reykjavík; close to all the major landmarks such as Hallgrímskirkja. The apartment is a great base for exploring Reykjavík; art museums, shops, cafés, restaurants and the beautiful seaside...everything is within walking distance. You’ll love my place because of the neighborhood, the cozy living room, and the comfy bed :)

The space

This lovely third floor apartment (2 staircases up) is on the main shopping street, Laugavegur. You can see Hallgrímskirkja church, Reykjavík's most famous landmark from your window. It only takes you a few minutes to walk down to the seaside. The kitchen is fully equipped, there's a nice dining area by the window and a cozy living room, perfect for planning your trip, relaxing or watching TV. The bathroom in the apartment has a shower. The entire bathroom has just been renovated. The bedroom has a very comfortable double bed (140 cm).
Attention! There's construction going on in the neighborhood, which may be noisy during working hours.

Guest access

There's free wi-fi and you can use the washing machine in the laundry downstairs. There's a clothes rail in the apartment you can use for drying your laundry. I also provide linens and towels during your stay.

Interaction with guests

Please contact me right away if anything is missing, out of order or there‘s a problem during your stay.

Other things to note

Check-in is after 14:00 PM and check out is 12:00 (noon).

The cold water in the tap is basically the same as the bottled water - so it's very good for drinking!

The hot water in Iceland can be very hot from the fossett and don't worry that it smells like sulphur, the hot water in Reykjavik is geothermal. This means it both smells bad, and tastes bad, but is very good for your skin!

Jon's place is in the perfect location. Close to shops and restaurants and in the heart of the city. It was very easy to find and clean. We had a lovely stay.

Jón's apartment is located in the centre of the city. So we could walk to all the shops and cafés/restaurants in a couple of minutes. And even though it's located in the centre of the city it wasn't noisy in the apartment. Jón provided a list of things he'd recommend to check out in Reykjavik. The apartment is very clean and had everything we needed. We enjoyed our stay and can recommend booking the apartment

This apartment was in a great location, was clean and a good size for us. Jon was great to work with, answered question within 24 hours (or much less), and gave great instructions on how to find the apartment. This was excellent as we arrived after midnight after 32 hours travel time and this iscwhen you need your instructions to work. Thanks Jon. We did see the auroura from the harbour asc well!

The apartment has a great location - very central and close to many restaurants and shops. The apartment is very well equipped and very clean. It was very easy to enjoy Reykjavik and tours further afield from this base.

Beautiful place with plenty of living space! Bathroom was a bit small but that's just the American in me. Extremely nice!

One of the main reasons I chose this apartment was for all of the natural light shown in the photos. And I was not disappointed! We were very cozy and warm during our rainy stay. The washing machine access was a real bonus too. And for walking, the location was also great.
