A Gem of a Stay
We just returned from our first trip to Iceland. While searching for a place to stay that was within our budget, could accommodate three of us and was not miles outside of downtown walking distance, it was recommended to us to try a vacation rental. I've traveled all over the world, and this is the first time that I've rented an apartment. Let me just say that if all experiences were as good as this one, I'd likely never stay in a hotel again! The location was wonderful, quiet yet close to everything. The owners live next door/upstairs but aside from being friendly, were unobtrusive. They were available by cell should we need anything (which we did...after 18hrs of traveling, we needed early checkin). They gave great recommendations as to places to shop for groceries - the kitchenette was a HUGE bonus for us - and where to eat out, things to do and see. While we ourselves had other arrangements, we could have chosen to take their tours. We never felt like we were intruding, nor did the owners intrude on our space and/or time. When I accidentally tripped the breaker with my adapter, it was a very short time before it was repaired! For myself and two teenage girls, we felt safe, secure and blessed to have a sweet spot to stay in Reykjavik! The owners are continually updating, so we know that we'll see even more charm when we next return.

Hi again and thank you so much for your wonderful review and kind words. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Cozy Studio and it was absolutely wonderful to meet you all. It's true that we don't offer wifi but after we found out that IARC (International Agency of Research for Cancer) at WHO categorized microwave radiation like wifi as possibly carcinogen in May 2011 we decided to shut off the wifi in the house and only use the classic LAN cables/wires instead. Especially since we have a young child and children are said to be more sensitive to radiation than adults. We truly hope to see you all again someday and you are of course always welcome back in our EMF-free Cozy Studio apartment. Warm regards from Reykjavik Iceland, Svenni

Great Location. Great Stay.
It's located in a little courtyard across from the Old Harbour. This makes it inaccessible for some tour companies to pick you up for tours. Luckily, Reykjavik Downtown Hostel is literally a minute walk away. You can see it from the arch of the alleyway. Not a problem. The location was perfect as everything was in walking distance. Literally everything. Restaurants, shopping, etc. The property was clean and we had no complaints with anything really. I only wish that we were instructed on how to use the washer. Being from Canada I'd never seen one that way an had no idea how to use it. I found the instructions but they weren't in English. This wasn't really a problem either. Overall, I would definitely stay here again when we come back to Iceland in the future and would recommend this place to those who ask.

Hi and thank you for your wonderful review! We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay and are very grateful that you picked Cozy Studio for your stay in Reykjavik. I know what you are saying regarding the washer. Even though we are in the same building it's not convenient to knock on someones door to get the washer going so I'm now putting together an instruction manual for future guests. Thank you for the pointer! Like you say, the location is just perfect, away from all the down town partying on weekends but still literally minutes away from everything. Our little courtyard makes it so special in that way also. It was a pleasure having you with us and meeting you and you are of course always welcome back, anytime. Warm regards from Iceland, Svenni and Stella

Perfect location for a great stay in reykjavik.
The apartment was lovely, clean , and very spacious for 2 people. It was in the perfect location as we could walk everywhere we wanted to go in reykjavik from there. It was a little hard for us to find at first as you have to kind of go through an alley, but once we found it our stay was perfect! Sveinn and his wife were very helpful and recommended many places for us to go. I would definitely recommend it!

Hi Megan, Thank you for your lovely review and staying with us. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and it was such a pleasure meeting you both. It's true that it can be hard to find the house at first because we are in a courtyard and that's exactly the reason it's so quiet and cozy here even on weekends and even though we are only 2 min. walk away from the center square. We loved chatting with you and hope to meet you again someday if you decide to come back. Warm regards from Iceland, Svenni and Stella

This rental is in a wonderful location. It is in walking distance of every thing one would want to see in old town. It is also near the harbor, food stores, and about a twenty minute walk from the main bus station. It is spacious, very clean, and well equipped. The bed is very comfortable and there is plenty of hot water. The owner lives above this basement apartment and is very helpful and easy-going. There is a very young child living above this apartment that could be heard running around and/or protesting what I assume was bedtime. But this happened only a handful of times and only for a short period of time. It didn't really bother us. Otherwise this is a very quiet apartment, especially for such a good location. BTW: The street on which this rental is located continues into what appeared to us to be a parking lot. There is no street sign there. The rental is located on the right hand side.

Cozy, quaint, fantastic location!!
The apartment is great. Private entrance, and steps away from the harbor. We had three people in there and we still had plenty of room. Steps away from the square and everything is central to what you need to see and where you need to be. Sevinn is fantastic and I will stay with him again in a heart beat.

Hi Sarah, Thank you for this wonderful review, we truly appreciate it. It always makes us feel warm inside when our guests appreciate what we have to offer. It's also great when we have guests for more than a few nights and we get the opportunity to get to know them a little bit better, their home country and background. Let us know if/when you come back and we will do our best to assist you and of course accommodate you. It would be our pleasure. Warm regards from Iceland, Svenni and Stella

Lovely apartment for convenience and comfort
Cozy apartment was perfect. It was warm, comfortable and clean. We could cook each night, so we didn't have to dine out too much. It was a two minute walk away from the centre, and a one minute walk from the library and the corner store that took all currency! I would recommend this apartment for someone who was travelling with a spouse or family, it is perfectly situated, quiet and convenient. Our landlord was great, very helpful and kind.

Clean, comfortable, affordable, and centrally located
Fantastic apartment in the heart of Reykjavik: The location is a two minute walk from the old harbor village (and its outstanding restaurants and cafes), as well as a five- to ten-minute walk to the center of town and all major attractions. The apartment is well appointed, comfortable, clean, and very affordable. The bed is comfortable; the shower is great. We also appreciated the filtered hot water in the apartment -- much gentler on the skin/hair than the standard Icelandic hot water. Sveinn, the owner, is very friendly and accommodating, and we felt very welcome. We will absolutely stay here again for our next trip to Iceland!

Excellent location, but appartment is in a cave
Appartment is perfectly located in the center of Reykjavik. Tenant is nice and helpful. However the appartment is a renovated cave, lacking light and view. But must admit the appartment is cozy. No wifi. FYI, cat(s) are living in the house, for those who might be allergic.

Great location
The flat is right in the heart of the city, very confortable, ideal for spending a week in Iceland where you will be most of the time out, sightseeing and enjoying the country. Sveinn was very friendly and helped us to make our stay nice and enjoyable. We recommend this apartment!!!
