Places to stay in Grafarholt og Úlfarsárdalur
My home, Kristnibraut 12, is close to family-friendly activities and a golf course. You’ll love my place because of the views, the outdoors space and the location. My place is good for all adventurers. The room is cozy and very quiet, set in Grafarholt, a district of Reykjavik that forms part of the eastern suburbs. This is a quiet area of private houses. Bus nr. 18 stops 30 meters from the building. It passes both Kringlan (shopping) and Perlan (the Pearl Dome) on it´s downtown 15 min drive.
This building (Kristnibraut 12, 113, Reykjavík) is built on one of the highest grounds in Reykjavík. That makes it stand very high and consequently you have a visibility over the capital city and lights from the city do not disturb so much as they do downtown. Instead you see the Northern lights much better. When the sky is clear, the Northern lights become visible. They usually appear around 23.30. Notice! you do not see them early in the evening and even though the sky is clear they sometimes do not appear. Step out on the balcony and take a peek.
There are websites in english about Reykjavík city and routes to take. Google them. That will be helpful if you are not sure about our position. Visit the site: staeto . is The english version is quite good. Do type this: from HLEMMUR to Kristnibraut 112, 113 Reykjavík and see the route. This may help even if you have rented a car. The street map can be see very clearly if you zoom in. IMPORTANT!! Please study the pictures on the airbnb site to get to Kristnibraut 12. Many guest come and find it difficult to find their way if it is dark outside. You will probably not find many rooms in Reykjavík with a view like we offer. Go out on the balcony and take some pictures. If you stay on New Years Eve you will see all the fireworks at midnight. In case of emergency, there is a pharmacy 500 m. from the building. It´s open from 9:00 -18:30 (weekdays), Saturday from 12:00-16:00. It´s closed on Sundays. The pharmacy is only 10 meters from the grocery store.
  • She is the sweetest lady. I loved chatting with her. Beautiful apartment with excellent views over Reykjavik.

    Claudia2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • This was the perfect place for us to spend a night when we visited Reykjavik. It's only 15 minutes away by car from the city and in a quiet residential area. Iris was a kind host and made us a good breakfast in the morning. She was very accommodating of our requests and made us feel very welcome. All in all a very lovely stay.

    Binita2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • We spent only one night at Iris's and everything was good: the bed were comfortable and the restroom's clean. The place is even better than it looks in the pictures, Iris has a very stilish house. She's so kind and nice, it was a pleasure to have met her!

    Lorenzo2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Iris was superb. We arrived late night because of flight delays. It was just after midnight and we were tired and lost on the street. Iris was able and amazing to come to collect us on the road. THANK YOU so much for your help and hospitality. We had lovely stay and the breakfast was amazing including traditional Icelandig. I highly recommend to other guests.

    Reykjavík, Iceland

    Private bedroom with a queen size bed that can accommodate two (2). Breakfast fixins available. My place is small but is cozy and in the suburbs of Reykjavik. I am on the ground floor, access to the garden. Right across is a jogging path and a children´s playground. Although retired, I previously worked in the hospitality industry and keenly aware of guest needs. Looking forward to having you over! IMPORTANT: Pls. PREVIEW the check in process you are given access to once booking is confirmed.
    My apartment is not large but well planned so that we are not stepping on each other´s toes. On warm summer days, I can set out garden chairs where you might want to sit and have a glass of wine.
    My neighborhood is away from the hustle and bustle of central Reykjavik. It is however a very family friendly, safe and quiet area. I like to think of it as an oasis after a day of sightseeing and exploring Reykjavik´s charms. Sometimes, when the conditions are right, you can see the northern lights from my backyard.
  • Virginia's place was perfect for us and our needs. The room is small, but accommodated the two of us and our bags. Virginia was very kind and hospitable, the breakfast she provided was great. We would stay here again!

  • We had a wonderful time at Virgie's home. She Was a fantastic host and we enjoyed very good breakfast from her and nice conversations. She gave us a lot of good local tips and was always there for help. She has a nice and cozy place and we will miss her warm and welcoming Person. If We come back to Iceland, We will for Sure book with her. She is a wonderful Person and goes above and beyond to help you to make your stay nice and comfortable. The bus stop is just 2 min Walk and takes you to the City, so her place is very good located.

    Thalina2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Convenient with parking and a 15 minute drive from downtown Reykjavík. The accommodation is very well heated. The host is friendly and offers a generous full breakfast (savory and sweet, different on different days).

    You want to be close to the nature, have your morning coffee with the fresh air from the mountains but yet be close enough to the city? Then our place is the right one! Our little guesthouse is the perfect place for you to enjoy some quietness close to the mountains but only 15 minute drive to Reykjavík City Center. Our shared kitchen facilities and living room make our place feel like a home away from home. From our doorsteps we often have spectacular view of the Northern Lights!
    Eight square meters room with queen size bed and shared bathroom and kitchen facilities. Our kitchen is fully equipped with a dining area which makes it easy for you to prepare your own meals in peace and quite :) WiFi and parking are free of course! There are total of 4 Bedrooms in the guesthouse so it will not be too crowded ! Being close to the nature yet not far from the city center, our place is the perfect spot for your vacation in the Reykjavik area. Mountain Úlfarsfell is practically in the backyard, one of the most popular hike in the capital area. The locals love to visit the mountain for a morning or afternoon stroll, breathe in the fresh air and get some mindfulness into their body. We want you to experience it too! Our cat, Elsa, lives at the property which we think makes our place even more unique - we believe that being surrounded by nature and animals is so good for your soul ! Of course if you have allergies we kindly advice you not to book with us since our beloved Elsa will be around in the shared area of the guesthouse.
    Reykjavík City Center is only 15 minute drive from our property. Our house is in the country side within a city range with all the advantage we have = NATURE! If you want to visit the city but yet be in the quietness our place is perfect for you. Mountain Úlfarsfell is practically in our back yard where you can take a morning hike after enjoying a cup of coffee. Mountain Esja is also only 20 minute drive where you can hike a popular route (about 1,5-2 hours up and down) up to Steinn (english: Stone). Grocery stores, shops, pharmacies, banks and restaurants are to be found in the neighborhood village only 5 minute drive.
  • I can't recommend this place enough. We were really pleased with the location as it's one of those idyllic quiet places with a perfect view. It's really close to everything you need as well! The hosts had the best local knowledge and the whole place was spotless. Loved it

    Ben2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a nice house with a cute cat. We like staying here.

    Bang-Ruei2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • It was a very clean visit. Exactly what we expected. The cat is super friendly. We walked down the street to take photos and the cat"escorted" us :) stylish place and friendly people.

    Tasha2019-08-31T00:00:00Z

    Annette2019-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation was very nice, cozy and well equipped. Because of our tour, we only spent our first night in Iceland in this accommodation. We would have liked to stay longer, because we felt very comfortable.

    Bianca2019-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second time staying here, and we loved it just as much as the first time! Some changes were made in the house since last summer (i.e. laundry was moved out into open space from the bathroom, etc.) but the house cat Elsa was still there, which we were excited about! She was not in the house when we arrived, but as soon as we heard her bells I jumped out of bed and went out to say hi. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone interested in staying out of the main City (though it's only about 10 mins away) and who wants to mingle with other tourists (since there are four rooms in the house, you will definitely come in contact with the other residents).

    Amy2017-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Away from the city, but definitely can feel the peacefulness of your stay. You'll be greeted with amazing view and of course Elsa the cat. ;) Cosy and really nice place that you can meet other adventurer in Iceland. ;)

    Reykjavík, Iceland

    A single room for rent in a 3 bedroom apartment. It is located on 8th floor with a stunning view of the city of Reykjavík. It is 10 minutes away from the city central and very accessible to groceries, 5 mins walk public pool,clinic and bus transportation.
  • You have everything you need, a bed, a shower, a fridge, microwave and shower. Shops are within 500 m range. To get to the city center, you have to drive about 30 minutes by bus. But you should make sure that you do not leave too late from the city center, since the buses only run until 0:30, especially with an Aurora borealis tour sometimes scarce, a taxi ride from the BSÍ to the room costs 4,400 kr.

    Oliver2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and comfortable, the bed is very soft, beautiful night view can be seen outside the window, ten minutes from the city center, driving by yourself is completely acceptable.

    Amore2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • The room is very very clean. The bedding was so clean and neat. Also the bathroom is very clean too. I think it's way better than normal hotels.

    Moonkyu2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • I had a wonderful stay with Roselyn. She was very communicative and accommodating and I had a nice private space with a fridge, kettle and private bathroom. Free on-site parking was great as well since I had rented a car during my stay. It was a bit further from the city than I expected but it was fine for me since I had a car. Very close to grocery, gas stations, food and the freeway. Highly recommend!

    Nicole2019-09-24T00:00:00Z

  • I really liked this place, it’s a bit out from the city centre but the bus stop is right in front of the building and buses come pretty frequently. There’s a supermarket and some food places right around the corner which is super convenient. The view from the window was amazing and the room was private and cozy with a fridge, microwave, and private shower outside. Rosalyn was a very kind host. She was very easy to talk to and I felt at home right away. She left some tea bags and crackers for me and when she heard that I needed to buy some clothes because I had come dreadfully underdressed she immediately offered to lend me a scarf and a jacket so I didn’t have to go shopping, which I was extremely grateful for. My trip would not have been as good as it had been without her. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking!

    Newly renovated 2 bedroom apartment on the 1th floor. The apartment has everything you need in order to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Located in a quiet and family friendly area, all necessary services and activities are in the neighborhood. Easy access to the center of town and the beautiful countryside Iceland has to offer. Free parking and high speed WiFi. The private, wooden terrace is a great place to relax and enjoy the sun. Please keep on reading. :)
    The apartment features BRAND NEW, high quality furnishings and electrical appliances (TV, electric stove oven, washing machine, clothes dryer etc.). Large and bright and the high ceilings make it additionally look bigger. Big windows provide lots of sunlight. Great location as its only 12 minutes drive from the city center.
    The apartment is close to low cost food store and food court. Takes only 4-5 minutes to drive to swimming pool. The neighborhood is very friendly.
  • Hróar’s home is absolutely stunning. It has ALL of the amenities you need for a cozy night in Iceland from a smart TV to a fully equipped kitchen with all basic necessities. The property is also located 15 minutes away from downtown which definitely helps for those nights out. Upon arrival, Hróar graciously greeted us and provided us with tips and nearby eateries. What sets this Airbnb apart is Hróar. We rented a small car which definitely helped get around to local attractions. However, on our day of checkout our car got stuck in the snow. Hróar went above and beyond to help us get unstuck when he had no obligation to. I am truly grateful to him and staying at his home was one of the best decisions I made upon traveling to Iceland. Stay here and you won’t regret it.

    Sherry2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Nice, cozy, stylish location. Hróar was very accommodating and helpful!

  • The apartment was very clean although not too close to downtown but if you have a rented car then everything is easy and makes a short distance to downtown, however if you like a quiet neighbourhood where you can relax and get away from busy aura of downtown then this apartment is for you Sixtus Nto Mbah from Lagos

    Sixtus2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Immaculate, spacious, comfy, and well-appointed—hands down, the cleanest accommodations I’ve ever had the pleasure to spend a week in. Hróar responds swiftly to texts and thoughtfully walked me through the apartment to point stuff out when I first arrived. If you rent a car and don’t mind being a bit removed from the center of things (aka in a quiet suburb), you’d be hard-pressed to find a better place to stay in terms of bang-for-the-buck. I’ll definitely keep this place on my favorites list.

    Jon2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic apartment located 20 minutes from downtown Reykjavik. Hróar always responded quickly to our questions on Airbnb, and gave us a a quick tour of the place before we got settled in. The apartment is located in a very quiet neighborhood, for us it was silent the entire week we were there. It's located 5 minutes from a bus stop that takes you to the city, and a 15 minute walk to the nearest supermarket. The place feels very modern and spacious, it's actually larger than it looks in the photos. Hróar was a great host and gave us everything we needed. Definitely recommend

    Marco2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, great value. The furniture is modern, and the place was clean. It was roughly 13-15 minutes from downtown Reykjavik, 45 minutes from the KEF airport, and there's a local grocery store (Kronan) within 2-3 minutes drive. I would stay here again.

    Jake2019-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean, 2 bedroom space conveniently located close to grocery stores, gas station and about 12 minutes to downtown Reykjavik. There was only 1 washroom, however that seems to be the case across Iceland! This place had the appropriate amenities for a long term or short term stay. For example, a coffee machine, tea, spices and a good number of glasses, cups, knives and plates. However, there were no cooking utensils. Hroar was very helpful, we met him the first day as he received us in the apartment. There was free parking outside the building, the unit was on the first floor, which made it easy to get in and out of. Overall, I would definitely recommend Hroar's place!

    Great new apartment located in one of the newest suburbs of Reykjavik, but only 15 minutes drive to the city center. The apartment is very well equipped and bright with great mountain view and over the city. When northern lights, they can be easily seen from the balcony.
    Parking place in front of the apartment
    The nature is at my doorstep. There is a grocery store just three minutes drive away.
  • Tommi was the best host! He replied to all of our inquiries very quickly and gave us some good recommendations on spots for where to see the Northern Lights. The floors were heated which was a huge bonus. Everything was as pictured. The only comment I would make would be to notify guests of trash separation cans prior to arrival to avoid going through garbage at the end of the stay. Would definitely recommend.

    Vanessa2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Tommi was highly responsive and provided all the necessary details in advance. We were welcomed by his family, Gudrun, as he was out of town. Gudrun was super helpful throughout our stay, she immediately responded to our messages. We were travelling to celebrate a friend's wedding anniversary and they couldn't have found a more romantic place in Iceland for this occasion. I would highly recommend Tommi's place (as long as you are not reliant on public transport).

    Cosy private room with a small kitchen and a bathroom with shower. All newly renovated. The entrance is maybe not the most elegant and the space in front of the room is our storage. There is a door into the garden from the room. Located near the nature paradise Elliðaárdalur. Bus stop 130 meters away. There is a wonderful local swimming pool in a 1 km walking distance.
    Our house is located in a suburb in Reykjavik. This is a nice quiet neighborhood. At the end of the street there is this wonderful valley where a river runs through. It is called Elliðaárdalur. The valley Elliðaárdalur is one of the green recreational areas of Reykjavík with hiking and bicycle paths. There is also a swimming pool, a small ski lift and horse riding facilities in the valley. Since the beginning of the 20th century, this has been a reforestation area with birch, fir and pine trees planted.
  • Great place and location! Has everything you need for a pleasant stay, and Eyþór was very kind!

  • Olafia‘s apartment is beautifully decorated and has a million dollar view. Olafia helped us to make our trip special and we felt home and welcome at her place. We are very thankful that we could stay at her place.

    Friedhelm2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place and location to stay. Near Reykjavík, and easy access to beat the traffic to the golden circle and Vik. I wouldn’t stay anywhere else.

    Aaron2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great apartment 5☆ Comfortable beds and amazing view of the city from all windows. Ideal location for visiting sites in Iceland. No traffic delays as on the outskirts of the city. We had a wonderful holiday and wish we could have stayed longer. Home from home really.

  • The independent apartment is recommended for an elegant and comfortable environment. The night view of the city can be enjoyed outside the window. Then my family unanimously recommend their bed, which is super sleepy~

    Reykjavík, Iceland

    40 sqm studio apartment with private toilet, shower and kitchen in a friendly area of Reykjavík 6.4km from the center. Bus connection stop is near the house. Free parking available 24/7. Easy access to road number 1 which takes you to the south shore, Golden circle or actually anywhere in Iceland. Only few minutes walk to several fast-food shops, a bakery, a bank and a grocery store. The historical museum Árbæjarsafn and Elliðárdalur nature park are also within a short walking distance.
    The neighborhood is quiet and safe. One of Reykjavik's best swimming pools is only 2km away. There they have indoor and outdoor pools with warm water plus jacuzzis and playgrounds with sliders. It is about 8min walk to the open air museum of Árbæjarsafn. It is an open air museum with more than 20 buildings which form a town square, a village and a farm. Most of the buildings have been relocated from central Reykjavik. The national park Elliðaárdalur is also only minutes away. It is a lush recreational area popular with walkers and cyclists alike. The valley features a distinctive fishing river populated with a remarkable number of Arctic char, salmon and brown trout. Fishing licenses are available during the summer season, which is opened annually by the Major of Reykjavík on June 1st. The season ends on August 31st. Note it's also possible to fish in the nearby Elliðavatn Lake and Reynisvatn Lake. In the area you will find restaurants of all kinds but with reasonable prizes. Hamburger places, fish restaurants, Pizza place etc. In the neighborhood you will also find among other things a low budget supermarket, golf course and an adventure park with paintball, archery, laser tag, mini golf, frisbee golf, soccer golf etc.
  • It was very easy to get to this place and reception was welcoming. Skuli and his staff are very nice people. They provided me every item I needed and all the information I asked very quickly. They have something that's very important to me: they take care of the guest but are never invasive. I felt entirely free. The apartment has all the utilities needed. Wifi is very important to me and it was good. Hot water has a sulphur smell. I found it strange at first but I quickly realized that's because Iceland is a volcanic island and the water is influenced by the minerals on its soil. The same smell exists in many places in Iceland; even in places with healing waters, such as the Blue Lagoon. Heating system is great. The apartment has a very good location. It is as easy to get to the center of Reykjavik as it is to leave the city and go to Iceland's sites. A good supermarket is within a 3-minute ride. Check-out was very easy. I recommend the place.

    Ntt2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and clean apartment at the edge of Reykjavík. Near a supermarket and busstation. A perfect spot to explore Iceland! The induction stove works very fast, so once I had to much smoke and set of the alarm. This was fixed in one minute.

    Tijmen2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place was easy to find and very clean and just as described. Parking was easy and convenient. I would stay again anytime.

    Rene2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much for everything, especially when we had a question and Larisa came right away to help! Great place and easy to get anywhere from there!

    Emily2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • We, two young adults, were looking for an affordable place to stay during our Reykjavik city trip. Skuli's apartment was suited very well for this. Especially the good bus connections came in handy for us. It is approximately a 6 minute walk to the next bus stop, where just about every Reykjavik bus line stops. The place itself was very clean when we arrived and it is nicely furnished and decorated. The kitchen has all the equipment you might need for a short stay, including for example spices and an oven. The only downside was that the WiFi was a bit weak. If you're traveling in the summer, you should also remember to bring a sleep mask since the sun doesn't set and the curtains don't keep out all the light.

    Aileen2019-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • This studio apartment had amazing accommodations, affordable price, and best communication ever from the host. This was planned to be a very special trip for my husband and I, one we've been dreaming about taking, and this apartment was beyond perfect! I chose to book this due to the existing outstanding reviews, location, value, and amenities. This was also our first experience with booking Air BnB for a stay and we couldn't have been happier! While other reviews do mention the location being slightly out of town center, we found the local bus system very easy to navigate and take once we got it all mapped out via their app, Straeto. The cleanliness and amenities were better than most hotels I've stayed at recently, and definitely above average for an international vacation!

    Emily2019-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay! Pretty far outside of town, but it is close to a bus stop which makes it pretty easy to get around. It’s also right across the street from a supermarket which made getting food easy. Having our own kitchen and washing machine was really convenient and the smart TV with Netflix on it was nice after a long day. If you have a rental car it’d be perfect because it’s only about a 10 minute drive into town. If not be prepared to spend a good amount on bus tickets. Overall this was a very clean and cozy place to stay! I would recommend staying here!

    Evin2019-05-28T00:00:00Z

    We are a family of six and our house is located in Breidholt about 9 km to Reykjavik city center. We are renting 2 double rooms at a generous price for privacy and comfort. Our location is convenient for guests who will be renting a car. Otherwise, bus stops are near our house. You will be sharing the kitchen and diningroom/ livingroom with us but we are mostly out for school and work during the day.
    Room1 is located downstairs with a view of the backyard. Enjoy your night's sleep in the comfortable bed and come back from your day's trip to see the beautiful sunset silhouetted by the trees at our own backyard. The kitchen and diningroom/livingroom is common not only for the guests but also for us homeowners, but during your stay with us, we will definitely give you space and privacy. You will have to excuse our little 6yo in the house as he runs around the house a lot.
    Our house is close to a grocery store that is open until 24:00, school, swimming pool, and 24 hrs. gas station. Down the nearest valley is a hiking/running trail with a wonderful view of a river and waterfalls (Elliðará).
  • The host, Jessie, was very friendly and helped us get around Reykjavík on our first day. Her family lives in the same house and her mom packed us some great food when we checked out. I’d recommend this place for couples with few bags or things.

    Karthiga2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Location is close to downtown Reykjavik and is definitely a good value for money. One of the cheapest stays around the area, yet, they will provide you with everything that you need. It was lovely having conversations with their little Filipino family, too. They even offered me to have a dinner with them. 10/10 would recommend this place if you would like to spend your holiday in Iceland just like what I did. Special thanks to Jessie for being so responsive to all my queries.

    Mark Angelo2019-11-17T00:00:00Z

    New cozy and spacious studio apartment in Reykjavík with a private entrance in a quiet neighborhood with double bed, sofa and a bathroom with shower. Included are wifi and parking right outside the house. Pets and smoking are not allowed inside the apartment.
    It is nice to take a stop at this apartment if your are on your way out of the city.There is no kitchen available but some dishes, cups and other things will be available along with an electric kettle, microwave, toaster and a fridge so there should be no problem to make a light meal. We will provide coffee, tea and milk for you to enjoy.
    It's a quiet residential part of Reykjavík city. It has a nice public swimming pool close by. There is a large indoor sports stadium called Egilshöll in the neighbourhood that has a restaurant, bowling alley, ice skating, a cinema, a gym and a bar. There is also a shopping center called Spöngin nearby where you can find some fast food and restaurants, grocery store, pharmacy and health care. If you want to go hiking to mount Esja, It takes about 15 minutes to drive from Sveighús to the roots of mount Esja and 40 minutes drive to Þingvellir national park or if you are interested in playing golf there are two golf courses close by. And if you are going down town it only takes 15-20 minutes with a car.
  • First let me start out by saying fabulous hosts!!! Everything was over the top prefect!!! Wonderful hospitality. I can’t say it enough. This space has its own private door with key. Everything is brand new. Easy to get to with being close to everything. Has a little microwave, mini fridge, and some silverware and plates to fix a small meal if needed. Plenty of towels, hand towels, and wash clothes. We never had to worry about being cold either. Room was very modern and clean. Hot water for a nice shower. We stayed for three nights and could have stayed longer. Neighborhood is very safe and quiet. We walked around late at night. If you are staying in Reykjavik this is the place to stay!!!

    Great newly renovated studio apartment with private entrance for two in a family friendly neighborhood. 35 square meter with a queen size bed, new kitchen and new bathroom. Quick way into the city center (15 min drive), easy access to main roads and quiet neighborhood. There are super markets not too far away and a local swimming pool with hut tubs and sauna.

    Located in a quiet area with easy access to the highway to head any direction. 10 minute walk to one of the best swimming pool in Reykjavik, Árbæjarlaug.
  • My girlfriend and I stayed here in March 2020. The apartment itself is clean and spacious and well-located close to bus routes, local amenities and for exploring Iceland by car. The real star of this listing is Svenni. His local knowledge and tips really enhanced our visit to Iceland so we could get the most out of each day.

    Rhys2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • An apartment of the most complete and warm. A marvel

    Mara2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place with fantastic access to the surrounding area. Highly recommended this place.

    Mitch2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Sveinn’s place was perfect! Very comfortable, clean and everything we needed, including a parking space. The drive into town was easy. Sveinn also sent me some guest information in advance, which helped us to plan out our trip. Would definitely recommend the local swimming pool suggested in there. On our last day, the weather was terrible and Sveinn kindly messaged us and offered for us to stay for longer. We will definitely be recommending this place to others who visit Iceland!

    Hannah2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • This place is PERFECT for a group of 2 or 3. The bed will fit two, but as I came with a friend I slept on the couch and it was extremely comfortable. Apple tv provides you some channels to watch at night before bed. Great bathroom and kitchen. Convenient check in-out. Quick 15 min drive into Reykjavik. Book and enjoy!

    James2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place was a pearl! It’s in a nice little area just outside Reykjavík and it looks like Santa’s hometown. The Joyce is nice and warm, clean and has everything you’ll ever need for your holiday. Thank you Sveinn!

    Francesca2019-11-20T00:00:00Z

    Newly renovated 3 bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor (with elevator). The apartment has everything you need in order to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Located in a quiet and family friendly area, all necessary services and activities are in the neighborhood. Easy access to the center of town and the beautiful countryside Iceland has to offer. Free parking and high speed WiFi. The private, wooden terrace is a great place to relax and enjoy the sun. Please keep on reading. :)
    The apartment features BRAND NEW, high quality furnishings and electrical appliances (TV, electric stove oven, washing machine, clothes dryer etc.).

    The apartment is close to low cost food store and food court. Takes only 4-5 minutes to drive to swimming pool. The neighborhood is very friendly.
  • We stayed at Hroar’s apartment the night before a flight out of Keflavík Airport. The apartment was very clean, the beds were comfortable, and it was in a great location for going both downtown and to the airport. Hroar also helped up with finding a restaurant on New Years and provided other tips during our stay—it was much appreciated! We would definitely recommend Hroar’s apartment to anyone.

    Ryan2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great place just outside the city. Food market and shopping very close, as is the main road into Reykjavik and out into the rest of Iceland. Great location for hopping into the Golden Circle. Clean, well equipped, fast wifi, and great communication from the host.

    Jonathan2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I both enjoyed staying at Hróar apartment. Hróar kept in touch with us since the comment we arrived to Iceland and allowed us to check in early. The apartment was not hard to find and it was closed to Kronan grocery store which happened to be a very inexpensive store. Hróar apartment had all we needed for a comfortable stay and more. His kitchen had all needed pans and pots, with a few cooking utensils and seasoning. His living space has a nice tv that was perfect for sitting to play switch after a love day of adventure. Bedroom had all clean sheets and large comfortable bed. One of the most important factors was good WiFi and free parking! I would love to comeback and stay in this apartment once I return to Iceland.

    Amy2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • This was an amazing stay. We were really surprised that the apartment is simply huge, yet warm and cozy, the amenities modern and stylish, squeaky-clean and beautiful. We loved the place. We loved the location. Parking was amazing. Quiet and comfortable, yet close enough to everything and anything. Whenever we had questions, Hróar was quick to answer, and quick to help. We had a marvelous time.

    Alex2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • This is an amazing place. A place that feels like being at home when you're travelling. A wonderful base to go explore Iceland from. Hire a car (plenty of parking). Easy access to go every where. I'd definitely stay here again. The local knowledge and suggestions whilst I was there was wonderful. When I wanted some down time, a great place to unwind. Come stay here.

    Carin2019-08-09T00:00:00Z

  • Thanks to Aleksandra for her accommodation, whose photos are not representative: it is much better !! A super kitchen, a living room and a bedroom with a view, all decorated in a very cozy way. It is so comforting after a long day of visiting to sit in one of the sofas under the huge picture window. In addition aleksandra is a very responsive and pleasant host! We will not fail to return!

    Melina2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Aleksandra offers her well kept house for B&B guests that is ideal for travellers who would like a relaxing stay just outside the hustle and bustle of inner Reykjavik. The house is simply lovely and Aleksandra was very accommodating, even getting me and my partner yoghurts and cereal for our first morning. A delightful stay and would definitely recommend.

    Adam2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Wow!.. what a beautiful place, pictures really don’t do it justice!.. We have just returned from a 4 night stay here and it really is a gorgeous, homely and stylish place to stay, Alexandra was on hand to give advice when needed and recommended the great local pool which is within walking distance and was the best one we visited in the area which was another bonus! A short walk and you are at the lake and out into the stunning countryside! Yes, a car is a good idea if you are staying here but you are close to the city and the golden circle route. Would highly recommend staying here and we will certainly come back again soon!

    Clare2020-01-12T00:00:00Z

The parking space is right outside the main door and the house is located in a very quiet road, about 15 minutes drive to Reykjavik’s city centre (downtown) making it very conveniently located. We had a lovely short break in Iceland and we absolutely enjoyed our stay at Aleksandra’s place. Highly recommended.

    Siavash2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Our favorite place that we stayed in Iceland. There's so much space, a full kitchen, laundry, a spacious living room and large glass windows in case you are lucky enough to have a clear night to see the light show!

    Jacob2019-11-04T00:00:00Z

    Winglam2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Super clean and, above all, huge home for a few days or a week. An unintentional but for us very pleasant detail was that their cat visited us. Perfect for breakfast, the full coffeemaker was the first stop every morning. It takes some getting used to drinking water that smells like sulfur, but that is part of Iceland's volcanoes. All in all a perfect apartment in the middle but quiet location. Definitely happy again.

    Reykjavík, Iceland

    Nice apartment located 10 km from downtown Reykjavík with a free parking.. Swimming pool near by, grocery shops, gas station and good walking trails by the sea with a view over Viðey. Museum and galleries near by also. The apartment is on a fifth floor and in the building are 38 apartments with all kinds of neighbors so this is not a party house. I meet my guests to let them have the key.
    Kitchen and living room is in a one open airea with balcany with a nice view and on a sunny day it´s very nice to have the first cup of coffee there. One bathroom with shower and one bedroom with one double bed with a big star on the wall. So if you want to sleep under a star in Reykjavik, this is the place.
    Swimming pool near by - link: https://ja.is/sundlaug-reykjavik/ypOxA/ Museum: Árbæjarsafn - link: https://travelguide.michelin.com/europe/iceland/capital-region/reykjavik/arbaerjarsafn Gallery: link https://www.facebook.com/gallerikorpulfsstadir/

    Nikos2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • I have visited Reykjavík many times, and stayed in several Airbnbs in many different neighborhoods. This is a great place for solo or couple, incredibly comfortable place with just the right amount of space and all the kitchen, living room, and bathroom amenities you need. If you have a car, the free parking is a big bonus, and the drive from downtown RVK would be pretty simple (finding parking there, however, be warned...). Would be a great base for exploring the W/SW of the island with a car. If you're just visiting the downtown Reykjavík area and taking a couple tours, you'll do just fine taking the #6 bus back and forth in 20-30 minutes (assuming you aren't out super late past when the buses run). Bonus tip: plan out your trip and get a Reykjavík City Card, it includes a lot of museums/attractions, the city pools/hot pots, as well as unlimited bus trips. It's a couple stops or a 20-25 minute walk to grocery, drug stores, and a couple places to eat in one direction, and to the closest pool in the other (or, 5 minutes on a bus). The bus stop is a 5 minute walk, and not too bad with heavy bags. Communication was excellent, photos sent helped with check-in. It was a seamless stay. Clean, comfortable, away from the hustle. There's a little street noise from the road outside, and occasionally you're gently reminded that you're in an apartment building. Great value for a great, private place to stay.

  • Great place for a few nights in Reykjavik. Conveniently located 15 mns by bus (stop on the other side of the street) from downtown Reykjavik. Our stay was perfect - I highly recommend Arni’s place!

    Anne-Claire2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place and very clean, even comes with a parking spot, which is extra nice if you are renting a car. It was very easy to find the apartment and check in. Arni was always very nice and pleasant to deal with, and responded quickly.

    Lucas2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Quite the stylish airbnb, and arni was great at communicating back promptly, nothing to fault really but for the eggy smell , would recommend !

    Chelsea2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Feels like a little bit of home. Only bad thing that its outside the city.

    Carter2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • I had booked Arni's place for my parents as we were visiting my cousin who lives nearby. They were very satisfied with it, and mentioned the stylish decorations. Check-in was super easy, with great instructions from Arni. We definitely recommend the place! It's well located, in a quiet neighborhood within a few minutes drive from the city-center.

    Julie2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and comfortable place in good location. Great contact, Arni answer very fast to all our questions. Highly recomended!

    Reykjavik, Iceland

    My home becomes your home (and I'm not there)! Quiet neighborhood. Reykjavik center is 12 mins by car/25 mins by bus. Experienced c0uchsurfing host! Easily sleeps family of four, one double bed, a full sized single, big comfy couch. Swimming pools, discount grocery stores a few steps away. In Reykjavík nothing is more than 10 minutes away (by car!). Suburbs are the best™ BIG TV with Netflix, Satellite TV (100s of channels) and an Android TV box (lots of movies on there!).
    The apartment is located in Breiðholt, which is a 12 minute drive from downtown Reykjavík and a walking distance from Elliðaárdalur, Reykjavík's very own natural park (of sorts), where the locals go for runs, a bike ride or a walk. The bus ride (with the #3 bus) takes about 25 minutes to the city center. The distance in km is about 8-10 km depending on the route (that's a long walk!). It is approximately 60 square meters / 650 square feet. It is divided into a living room/hallway, kitchen, a bathroom with a bath, a master bedroom and a children's bedroom. I have recently bought a brand new full sized bed for the children's room. It will sleep one adult. The couch is extremely comfortable to sleep in. Pillows in the double bed are new (Oct '16), Ikea Guldpalm, firm (not that firm for me actually!). I keep it very tidy and organized. No pets and no problems! People have described my apartment as cozy, hip and the perfect size for a couple or 2-3 friends wanting a quiet place to sleep and hang out. This is not a guesthouse or a hotel, it's my own living space, which I'm happy to share with guests when traveling or elsewhere.
    Easy access to the valley of Elliðaárdalur, beautiful walking pathways. Two geothermal swimming pools are within walking distance. Also Bónus (grocery stores) is within 5 minutes walking distance and the buses are easily accessible (and go straight to the downtown area).
  • Everything was perfect!

    Guillaume2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Pétur is an amazing host with a wonderful home. He was friendly, welcoming, informative and went above and beyond what a host has to. My father and myself stayed just shy a week. There was plenty of room for us both in the home, the location is perfect for those who wish to explore more than just the city center (which is very easy to get to when one wishes). You will not regret booking with him or staying in his home! We will definitely be coming back!

    Shay2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Very good host and excellent place. I was there with kids and all of us loved the place.

    Nimesh2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • This place was great, honestly had everything and so much more. He had a set of brochures, tips, and maps and it just felt very homey

    Reema2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • We are family of three. This is a great apartment fully loaded with amenities and very spacious. We have enjoyed our stay.

    Piyamate2019-05-17T00:00:00Z
  • Petur is a helpfull host and his appartment is really cosy.

    Irena2018-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable, clean, and quite with everything you could need for your adventure in Iceland!

    Kristin2018-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Peter was a very gracious and welcoming host. He was responsive and open to questions/giving us advice. The creative posters/selection of books in the apartment added a lot of character and a fun vibe to the place. Additionally, there was a comfy living room with a TV (Netflix included), which made it a great place to relax after a hard day trekking through the city and touring. In terms of amenities, there was a kitchen with pots/pans available for cooking, earl grey and ginger lemon tea for guests, and a laundry room next to the apartment (free of charge, although does not hold a ton of clothes). Bedrooms were comfy and and bright - adding to the homey feel. They were a good size and we could lay out our suitcases without feeling cramped. Overall, cannot say enough good things about this apartment! It was awesome staying at this home away from home.

  • Clean, good location, self check in, washer and dryer. 10/10 stay.

    Kevin2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing and spacious apartment with big parking space. One should stay here

    Rajeev Kumar2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Really good location for the price. Google maps gets you to the right set of buildings but finding the apartments among the other businesses can be confusing at first. But people were helpful and we made it :-) clean, small, efficient place to stay.

    Jeremy2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay if you're visiting Iceland and want to be near Reykjavík. It's a little bit on the outskirts of the city but only 10-15 minutes from downtown and you won't find a better place for the price. The kitchen was useful as well as having access to a washer and dryer

    Mike2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Nice apartment in a good location.

    Daniel2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • The apartments are on the right side of the building and the entrance is marked Reykjavik Studio Apartments 1-8. The keybox is near the door. At first the hallway looks a dark but the lights are motion sensors and light up as you walk in. The apartment had everything you need and many extra touches. The TV has Netflix so you can put in your password and watch what you want. The washer is in the bathroom and the dryers are on the outer hallway. The apartment is near the highway, and very easy to find. There is a Kronan grocery store and several restaurants nearby.

    Nikki2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! Communication was fast and the studio had everything we wanted. Location is nice to visit some highlights.

    Janske2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Skuli’s place is perfect for travelers with a budgets but in need for a comfy place for a few nights. It was sparking clean and has everything you need for a trip. Washer and dryer for dirty laundry in the facility was a huge plus. Also, there are a couple gas stations around the apartment too. You can make quick trips to a lot of places rather conveniently.

    Yongshi2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived late at night and struggled a bit finding the place. Our point of contact happened to see us and helped us find the lock box and entrance. It was quite chilly inside as one of the windows was open, but it warmed up over night as we turned on the heater. We couldn’t find any shower gel or shampoo. Overall I would still say the place was very clean and great for our quick one night stay!

    Sharon2019-08-30T00:00:00Z

    Reykjavík, Iceland

    A cozy apartment with all the comfort you need for your stay in Iceland. Located in a beautiful nature environment on your doorstep, but only 15-20 minutes away from downtown Reykjavik. The apartment is 40 sq m / 430 sq ft and is a part of a house where a family of six people lives. Kids are welcome. The bed is 180x200 cm and the sleeping sofa 140x200 cm.
    Our house is rather new and the surroundings is not quite finished yet. You should have everything you need and the apartment itself is all finished though and brand new!
    The apartment is in a new neighborhood on the edge of the city. You are only one step away from pure nature such as moss, small river and trees.
  • My daughter and I had a great stay at Runar’s place and has everything a small family would need. Communication and check in were all very easy. The apartment was incredibly clean, and well located to drive into Reykjavík or around the Golden Circle. I’d highly recommend to others and would stay here again

    James2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay with Runar and Jona was lovely and peaceful. As previous reviews have mentioned, it is a new apartment in a new neighbourhood with a yard connecting to beautiful rolling green fields. We were also provided tips for exploring the local trails. The bed was extremely comfortable bed and shower perfect for high-water pressure lovers. Thank you again for our special stay :)

    Sara2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice new apartment in a neighborhood under development. Recent decoration. Well equipped. Can be a little difficult to have lunch indoors at over 3. Ideal for 2 or 3 people.

    My place is great for couples. Wonderful one bedroom apartment on the edge of the city in the Grafarholt neighborhood. Great location for those planning to travel out of town to explore the country. 2 minute drive to a good discount supermarket in the neighborhood. 10-12 minutes drive to the heart of downtown. Beautiful views, wifi, TV, well equipped kitchen, patio with a gas BBQ. Perfect for couples, business travelers, and families!
  • Comfortable and spacious apartment. The location was convenient for our day trips around southern Iceland. We truly felt at home in this apartment!

    Ana2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Our host was incredible! The place was clean and comfortable. We liked the proximity to downtown and the location made it easy to get out and explore. We would recommend Erna’s place to anyone looking to have a wonderful experience in Iceland.

    Nick2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay here. We'd never done an AirBnB outside of the US, so were a little nervous, but everything went much better than we were expecting. Everything we needed was at the property, and the host was fantastic and super fast with answering questions. The place is in the suburbs and is really close to the junction that takes you to the golden circle and ring road. It's quiet and has a lovely patio to relax on. There's even a walking path right by the property that you can take around the area and up into the hills for a nice evening stroll. We would definitely stay here again.

    Holly2019-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • Stina was great!! She sent great tips and was understanding. Additionally, Erna (the owner) was amazing and came to let us in at 2330 when we locked ourselves out... I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    Alexis2019-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • It's a great place. We really enjoyed our stay. It's close to Reykjavik and all the main roads. Kronos grocery is also not far (next to KFC). The flat is beautiful.

    Ireneusz2019-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The apartment was beautiful and spacious and had everything we needed for our 9 day vacation. Location was perfect. Just a short 15 minute drive to downtown Reykjavik. We were also very close to a discount grocery store where we were able to buy everything we needed. After long days of hiking and adventuring, it was wonderful to come back to this warm, cozy place. Added bonus: since it’s located outside of the downtown core, we were able to see the northern lights one night when we stepped outside! Would be more than happy to stay here again. Highly recommend !

    Cheryl2018-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Erna and Stina were great hosts. Stina gave us plenty of places to visit upon arrival. The apartment is located right off the main highways. This makes a trip to Snaefellsnes peninsula or a golden circle route even easier! We saw the northern lights twice during our stay just 15 minutes away from the airbnb.

    Jeff2018-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Can’t imagine a nicer place to stay! Stina was very friendly and can offer customized information about the area. The apartment is blissfully quiet and relaxing. Loved the patio area fir sitting in the morning! We spent our anniversary here and the apartment is a great place for getting into Reykjavik quickly or heading out for day trips.

  • We stayed at Brynja's place for two nights upon our early morning arrival in Iceland. The place was clean and quiet. It was a perfect location for us travelling with 2 young children. There is a grocery store within walking distance and visited the great pool near bye. Was an easy 10 minute drive into downtown Reykiavik.

    Anna2019-09-22T00:00:00Z

  • We enjoyed our stay at Brynja’s apartment a lot. The spacious and bright apartment was very clean and offered a great view. It was ideal for our family with two small children since Brynja was very accommodating by providing us with a high chair and toys. We would definitely stay there again on future trips to Reykjavik.

    Susanne2019-08-22T00:00:00Z

It is in a good location with a grocery store nearby. Check in was very easy. We so appreciated Brynja' clear directions, friendly communication, and useful travel trips. We'd highly recommend her place to anyone visiting!

    Cathy2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much for an amazing stay. We enjoyed the very spacious apartment and all the amenities. The location is so close to the centre. Our children found the bed large enough for them both. We would stay again. Thank you for making it a memory for us of Reykjavík.
