A basic small Studio on ground floor in a family house in downtown Reykjavik. It is totally downtown with all services, entertaining and cultural essence but please read the description for more information.
Ground floor in central Reykjavik. A small studio with one bedroom with either two single beds or one 1.80cm wide bed, and a small kitchen where you can easily prepare a simple meal, and a small dining area combined, a free Wi-fi internet.
A small Toilette in the hallway "But no shower or a bathtub" A very nice thermal pool with hot tubs and a steam bath outside is within five minutes walking distance through a nice neighborhood. Excellent showers both inside and outside.
The Reykjvik thermals are famous for there healthy and clean atmosphere and local people of all ages love to go there.
If you read comments from my guests you can see that they are all very happy to have had the reason to go there. It is an experience.
The opening hours are very user friendly and open all days a week, the charge there is around 3 to 4 EUR:
There are lots of outdoor thermal pools in Reykjavik and they are all very clean and all have hot tubs and steam baths and outside showers as well.
But the local one in my neighborhood is only five minutes away.
There is a single room on the same floor also rented out on Airbnb, and the guests there use the same toilette.
It is also possible of course, to rent the whole floor.
It could be very convenient if people are traveling with children for example.
We, me and my family, live on the floor above.
That is me Helga, My partner Omar, my daughter St.Lilja, my five year old grandson Biel.
The airport bus terminal is 15 to 20 minutes walk from the house, an easy walk through a nice neighborhood especially if your luggage is manageable. But it is also very easy to grab a taxi, it is only a few minutes drive.
The house is in the heart of the city but still the street is rather quiet at night.
You are in two minutes walking distance from the main street, the oldest shopping and restaurant street in Reykjavik, and all the design and posh shops in Reykjavik.
Also this is the next street to where the famous church 'Hallgrimskirkja' Stands, where you can enter the tower and get a fabulous view of the city.
The old down town marina with all the whaling tours and small coffee places, local restaurants in the old fishing sheds and bars is only a few minutes away but also so very close to all the cultural and entertaining side of Reykjavik, the main galleries and the music hall.
Wi-fi. A basic kitchen.
Interaction with guests
My work is fluctuant so sometimes I am busy and sometimes I work at home. But there is always someone in the house if my guests have problems or need help.
We live a normal family life suitable for children and I expect my guests to respect that although I don't mind nor will I notice when they are in and out of the house :) And just to make sure that the outdoor is firmly locked when guests leave and arrive.
