Ideal for families and those who love old houses. A brightly colored old timber-house in the oldest part of Reykjavik city. In a few minutes walking distance from the old harbor, the parliament, Harpa music hall and most important tourist attractions, museums and restaurants. An old fashioned apartment on three levels linked by wooden stairs surrounded by a beautiful garden.

A lovely traditional house right in the heart of Reykjavik old town. Thab was a great host, responsive to messages and he met us at the house for check-in. We had a great stay and enjoyed spending a long weekend here.

Thab's place was wonderful to stay in! Only note is that the bedrooms are on the upper floor and lower floor, and the stairs are a bit steep - good to keep in mind for folks with disabilities. Otherwise, it had everything we needed, and the location is quite unbeatable…
