Otros aspectos destacables
This is the best location! Very central, but not right "in" the centre. We consider it a plus about the listing because here its not noisy during the night like downtown and you can always find parking and the parking is also free here! We suggest you familiarise yourself with the location on gooogle maps before booking.
THE WALK TO DOWN-TOWN
The 15 min walk from here to Laugavegur high street is a very pleasant one with lots of scenery. But please note that if you are lingering/taking in the scenery OR if there is a lot of ice and snow-the walk might be LONGER then 15 min. We suggest you familiarise yourself with the location of the listing on the map provided on the info page.
STAIRS TO THE APARTMENT
The stairs to the attic are quite steep, so please be careful. For the elderly and children under 2 y old, the access may be a bit complicated. Please refer to the picture of the stairs.
SHOWERING IN THE APARTMENT
This is an attic apartment so the ceilings are lower in some areas, this means for example that there is no standing shower, only a bathtub with a shower-hose. But feel free to take a long and cozy bath with candles ;)
Also the hot water in Iceland is geo-thermal and thus smells and tastes like sulphur! The locals are used to it :) However, the cold water comes from a separate pipe and is one of the cleanest freshest glacial water in the world! Just run the cold water for a bit before drinking it or cooking with it to let the hot water completely leave of the faucet.
- We kindly ask that you take your shoes off downstairs where the shoe rack is.
- You can park anywhere EXCEPT right in front of the stairs to the front door (and of-course the garages). This is because it is our very lovely downstairs neighbours parking-lot by law. And obviously so people can get into their car garages:)
- Please let us know if you need the sofa bed for sleeping and we will prepare it.
- You will be staying in a family house so please keep quiet after 22:00.
- This is a smoke free house so please respect that. No smoking in the apartment or around the house.
- Two cats live in the building (not your apartment).
- Check-out at 11 sharp!
But Most of all, enjoy your stay : )
