The space was cozy and quiet. I loved the big window that let the sun come in during the mornings. We had everything we needed to cook a little meal and prepare snacks for our day. They stocked extra towels that we could take on our hike and I loved the electric hot water kettle. There was also a cell phone outlet adapter. The place was perfect for what we needed and they even let us come an hour early when we were exhausted and wanted to sleep so bad. I would definitely stay here again.
Appartement très cosy et pratique, parfaitement situé entre calme et centre ville. Une note spéciale pour Margret, l'hôte, qui est d'une extrême gentillesse et qui a su répondre à nos besoins. Un grand merci car nous avons pu passé un séjour inoubliable dans un pays extraordinaire. Merci encore !
This place is adorably comfortable, close to downtown, the Laugardalur center with a geothermal, a fish market, and the bike/walk/run path along the ocean. The room stays warm all the time, too. If you're new to Iceland, the sulfur smell from the shower is normal (there are even small towels, totes, and t-shirts on sale about the "egg shower"). Definitely recommend.
Halldor and Margret were awesome hosts! We didn't get to talk to them as much as we would have hoped, but they were extremely accommodation and easy to reach. The place is close to the city (20-30 min walk) and very quiet and homely. We had everything we needed and would stay here again if we come back to Reykjavik. :)
The studio is basement level, but has a large window that faces the backyard. It's a 5 minute walk to the nearest bus stop that heads to downtown Reykjavik. If you plan on booking tours, one of the main passenger pick up points is right around the block at the Sundlaugavegur Guesthouse. The studio is clean, the water smells a bit, but that's common, the refrigerator makes loud sounds from time to time so bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper. The small kitchen came in handy. It's a good place to rest your head after long days of being out & about. We really enjoyed our time in Iceland!
