We are fantastically well located in the centre of Reykjavik 101, warm, cozy and welcoming. All Reykjavik’s main attractions, including her best restaurants, bars, cafes and shops are within a stone´s throw. We have come home to Reykjavik to raise our family and know the city, its language and culture intimately. We love it here. We love Airbnb too – we seem to attract incredibly friendly and inquisitive guests of all ages, be they single travelers, couples, families or groups of friends.

The space
The house is a traditional timber built Icelandic house, warm and snug throughout the year as heated with Iceland’s famous hydro-thermic hot water. “Thor's Room" is a small private room designed for single occupancy. It is a little room, primarily a sleeping space, is upstairs and looks out over our street. We have other private guest bedrooms in the house, including larger standard single rooms if you would like more space. All our guests have access to two shared bathrooms, two sitting rooms, a dining area and to a kitchen which can be used for heating up food and snacks but not for cooking full meals. We do not offer breakfast for the very good reasons that we are not licenced to serve food and there are so many excellent bakeries and coffee houses so locally; these open very early.
Our house itself is quite well known, and is listed. It was a bicycle shop for fifty years, the first of these in Iceland, and as such it is much loved in Reykjavik, especially by people who bought their first bike here a generation ago.

Guest access
Your private bedroom, two shared sitting rooms, kitchen, dining room. There are three shared bathrooms which are exclusively for the use of guests. There is a back yard with attractive golden rowan trees in it which is a nice aspect out of the windows, but this is part of our family space and not part of the guesthouse strictly speaking.

Other things to note
Be in touch before you travel to allow us to help you have the best possible experience of Iceland. Once you book I would be happy to send you a list of tips and suggestions as well as directions for a stress-free arrival.
Reykjavik is served by hydro-thermally heated hot water. Our hot water is hot and plentiful therefore and each bedroom has a radiator with an adjustable regulator. Don't be cold. Turn your radiator up if you wish.

Location

Reykjavík, Iceland

We are located in Þingholtinn, the meeting place as it was called at the time of the settlement, between the city lake with its small park and the great church of Hallgrimskirkja. The National Gallery is a 2 min walk and most of the other galleries in Reykjavik are not much further. The main shopping streets Skólavörðustígur and Laugavegur are around the corner. Harpa concert hall is 7 minute's on foot and the old harbour about 10. We have more restaurants and bars within a 5 minute radius than I can list and we recommend some of these in the Guidebook.

I am a half-Icelandic half-English opera singer. I live with my family here downtown. We love Iceland. I grew up in Njálsgata street in my grandparents' house which is very nearby, so I am a local, and a native speaker. Many of my cousins, aunts and uncles still live in the old town. I love my hometown and am thrilled at how Reykjavik has changed from the sleepy old fishing town of my childhood to the cosmopolitan and amazingly popular travel destination it is now. We are lucky to have a wonderful friend (also a singer) who helps us manage the Old Bicycle Shop. She is called Maria and it may be she who greets you when you arrive.

During your stay
I am half English / half Icelandic, born and bred in Reykjavik, and am native in both languages. This is my home as I grew a couple of hundred meters away in Njalsgata street. My husband and children (by upbringing) are English.
