Laufey's place was great. Nice, cozy, and just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. A quick walk to the corner grocery store or just a little further to make your way to a few select restaurants. About a ten minute walk to the downtown area. The space may be a little small for some but is perfect for solo travelers or romantic partners who don't need their space. The bathroom is beautiful and came stocked with some towels and a washcloth. The kitchenette also has some cook and dishware so that you can prepare your own food if you're inclined. Wifi worked great and TV is available, although I didn't watch any of it. If you rent a car, there seemed to be parking available just outside at all times. One note of caution for late risers, traffic noise is high for about an hour in the morning when people start going to work (this is a residential neighborhood) but it didn't bother me at all.

Laufey was really nice and picked us up from the bus station too. The apartment is truly unique and very cozy. Perfect for 2 travellers. We played the radio in the evenings and watched the sky change colors through the windows in the hours right before sunrise. The location was just perfect for someone dawning on the city Reykjavik for the first time. The grocery store right next door was very helpful and the apartment kitchen was lovely to cook and prep meals. Wish we could've stayed longer, however this definitely won't be the last time we visit. Thank you Laufey for your hospitality. :)

Laufey's apartment was the perfect fit for our vacation to Iceland. It was close to downtown but in a quiet residential area. Laufey was very quick to respond when we communicated. The apartment is exactly as it shows on This was a lovely stay and I highly recommend it if you are planning to go.

Laufey's apartment was perfect for my husband and I for our 6-day vacation. Everything we wanted to do in Reykjavik was walk-able, and there was always available free parking right outside the door. We made breakfast every morning at home and after a long day of walking and eating we'd relax on the couch and watch TV. The apartment is comfortable and the neighborhood is quiet. There's a great grocery store a few blocks west and a cute cafe about 5-10 minutes south. Plus Laufey was a very quick email away if we had any questions. We would love to stay at one of her apartments when we come back.

Great appartment in a great location. Walk down to the harbour and try the homemade ice cream. Owners were great and super helpful. My flight was late but they picked me up at 2am at the bus terminal! Thank you.

Laufey and Helgi were wonderful hosts. Helgi was able to pick us up at the bus station and took us straight to the property, giving us a short tour of the surrounding neighborhood on the way. The apartment is exactly as described, it is a simple cozy studio. Perfect for anyone visiting all of the beautiful sites Iceland has to offer, as it is close to the many tour bus pick up spots. The interior has some nice pieces that are custom built by Helgi. The bathroom is fairly spacious by most standards and clean. It should also be known that Laufey and Helgi run a rental car service that we were very grateful for. The car was delivered to us and picked up where we were departing from, absolutely no hassle and the rates were competitive. When we return to Iceland we will be booking with them again.

We made the right decision to stay in this cute studio, it's a lovely and warm, close to EVERYTHING! We stayed for four nights and it's enough for us to explore the great Reykjavik, the neighborhood of the studio is very safe and quite, and we walked to downtown( city hall) for morning coffee everyday, it only took us 10 mins. We didn't get chance to meet Laufey, but she always responded is very quickly by email, we will still stay in her place for our next Iceland trip!
