Condo/Apartment
In the historic center where Reykjavík City‘s old heart beats there is a beautiful old house that used to be called Aberdeen. The house is owned by a family of artists who have left their mark on every detail of the house. The style of the house is an interesting fusion of soft wooden old style from before the year 1900 and a modern raw artistic touch. The location is supreme, with a view over the streets of the old town, surrounded by museums, galleries, cafés, restaurants and the old harbour. If you are into the unusual and want to experience an artistic side of Reykjavík, then this is the right place for you. Practical detail: - This is a whole apartment which is ideal for a couple. - Shampoo and all sorts of toiletries are provided. - Water is in abundance, hot and cold, fresh ...In the historic center where Reykjavík City‘s old heart beats there is a beautiful old house that used to be called Aberdeen.

If you are into the unusual and want to experience an artistic side of Reykjavík, then this is the right place for you. Practical detail: - This is a whole apartment which is ideal for a couple. - Shampoo and all sorts of toiletries are provided. - Water is in abundance, hot and cold, fresh and natural spring water from the tap. - Air conditioning is not needed in Iceland, hence not provided. - The house is as warm as you need it to be as there are plentiful radiators around. - There should be sugar, coffee and tea in the kitchen, and even some muesli and spaghetti which will come in handy for tired travelers. - We may add a little flavour to your stay with little details here and there for you to enjoy, but we'll not disclose too much at this time. Surprises in a life flooded with information are underrated. - Parking is included during your stay, which is quite a catch nowadays in the center of Reykjavík. By staying with us, however, you are in walking distance of countless attractions. - The proprietor is quite a seasoned traveler herself, speaks several languages and is well in tune with her beautiful country. She will be happy to be of assistance. Well then, see you in 101 Reykjavík, at the very place this young city began!More
