About Anna Ringsted

My name is Anna Ringsed, born in Akureyri, largest town in the north of Iceland, but live in Reykjavik. I founded and ran a antique store, Friða Frænka, for 33 years. I decided to close it down and do something new, but still have my hands in old stuff. My store was located on the first floor of this house for 28 years. I have two kids, one beautiful grandson and a dog. I love to go horseback riding and travel.

Anna Ringsted purchased this studio in 2003

Why Anna Ringsted chose Downtown

This house has followed me for over 33 years and I have owned it since 2003. Today I own the top floor. The reason I wanted this house is that it is a old wood house with history.

What makes this studio unique

The apartment is located, in my opinion, in the most beautiful part of Reykjavik. I have, since I moved to Reykjavik, lived in the city centre, but this location is my favourite. History is all around it and the house it self has a story of it's own.

I highly recommend this beautiful, clean, convenient loft.

  • 5 of 5

I've visited Reykjavik quite a few times, and this is one of the loveliest places I've stayed. It's very roomy, pleasantly furnished, very clean, and is in such a great location. You are steps away from all the sites and things to do. It is not the quietest of places- lots of foot traffic late at night to the local bars, and there's a club playing very loud music well into the early morning. That said, I slept no problem but thought I should mention it. Also, please know that there are two flights of stairs so if you have heavy luggage keep that in mind. Anna, the owner, is very helpful, friendly, and kind. She met me in the morning and let me check in early which I truly appreciate.

This place is a real gem and I highly recommend it.

World Famous, at least in Iceland.

  • 5 of 5

Anna’s Apartments rocked. Conveniently located in the City Center, everything was available on foot. Large accommodation, great to relax and recharge your batteries, before heading off on the next adventure.

NB: Because of the original network of streets,, airport shuttle buses, such as Grayline, are not able to navigate the older narrow streets., Even if transferred to a smaller shuttle bus, they will drop you about 2 blocks from the apartment .

Gorgeous Apartment in Downtown

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was outstanding and beautiful!! It looks just like the pictures and Anna/Rakel worked so hard to get us in a little early since we arrived so earlier in the morning on check-in day. Rakel met us at the apartment to drop off our luggage early and gave us some breakfast/coffee recommendations. The bed/pillows were so comfy and plenty of kitchenwares to cook with. We do recommend walking to the Kronan on the peninsula for groceries as the small store near the apartment was triple the price! Everything restaurant-wise was less than 10min walking distance with our favorites being the coffee shop below(Stofan) and Tapas Barrin directly beside. We'll be recommending this apartment to any of our friends who come to Reykjavik and can't wait to stay here again. Thank you so much Anna and Rakel!

Charming and comfortable - perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Anna's apartment for two nights, and we could not have been more happy with our stay! The apartment is charming, bright, clean, and cozy, with lovely views all around. It's also perfectly located for short or long walks around the city. We were even allowed to come in very early the morning of our arrival in Reykjavik -- this was most appreciated, as we had taken an evening flight and were exhausted. The rental includes a binder with recommendations for good places to eat and things to do, which we found very handy. We had to contact Anna a few times just prior to and during our stay, and she or her assistant always responded right away. Just loved this little studio! We'd return in a heartbeat. Thank you, Anna!

Charming and great location

  • 5 of 5

Anna's studio is in the perfect location to explore Reykjavik. Walking outside the door your presented with numerous options of restaurants, shops and historical sites. The studio is bright and clean, making even the drizzly days enjoyable to be spending inside. I'd definitely recommend this place and stay again.
