Overview

Photos and Description of this Þorpið holiday apartment

1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 3 adults

The apartment is 60 square meters and it's on the first floor of a private villa. The location is peaceful and beautiful and offers great view over the town and the fiord Eyjafjörður from the garden.

Walking distance to the city center is around 15 min. The geo-thermal pool is also within a walking distance (10 min) and so is the supermarket ( 5 min)

The apartment has one bedroom for two with high quality beds. The kitchen is fully equipped and can seat 3 persons. The living room, which has a TV with access to a variety of international channels, and a DVD player, can sleep 1-2 persons. The bathroom is small but the apartment offers a very good and spacious shower. The apartment is newly renovated in a cosy and artistic way and has a private entrance. Access to wireless internet is included.

Akureyri is often called 'The Capital of the North'. It's the biggest town outside the Reykjavik area with 17000 inhabitants. The town is centrally located for anyone who wishes to explore the north of Iceland and places like Lake Myvatn, the waterfall Dettifoss, and the uninhabited interior like Askja and Dreki. Akureyri itself is a lively town with lots of cultural activities, cafes and resturants and high level of variety of services.

Excellent hébergement à tout point de vue

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes pleinement satisfaits de notre séjour. L'appartement est spacieux, décoré avec beaucoup de goût et très bien équipé. Il est situé à proximité immédiate du centre-ville, dans une rue très calme. Les propriétaires ont été discrets et très agréables. La cuisine nous a permis de préparer quelques repas. Il y plusieurs chaînes de télévision en francais (autres que TV5 monde et France 24), ce qui est très rare en Islande. Le canapé est confortable. La literie est très bonne. Akureyri est un bon point de départ pour explorer le nord du pays. Nous recommandons vivement !

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Rather than be repetitive of others' reviews, I will limit my comments to a confirmation- confirmation that all the previous reviews (which we relied upon when we decided to book this property) continue to be 100% accurate. The moment we drove down the quiet neighbourhood street and unlocked the front door, we felt instantly at home, happy that everything we read was true! Comfortable beds and linens, a well stocked kitchen, great shower head, artistic decor, gracious hosts, etc: it is all true! Go ahead and book this VRBO property...you will be very pleased you did so!

Gorgeous Apartment in a Great Location in Akureyri

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Akureyri was a snowy one, but we are so glad we managed to make it up there and stay in this wonderful apartment. The owners, Margret and Gummi, have done a brilliant job in furnishing this simple, comfortable apartment - a lot of the ceramics are hand-made by Margret herself and her pottery is beautiful. They are also very kind, welcoming hosts and made sure we were comfortable, even reassuring me about the drive up when the snow was forecast and keeping us up to date about the very changeable road and weather conditions.

The flat is very quiet in a suburban part of Akureyri but a short ten-minute walk to the City Centre. Next time we visit Akureyri we hope to stay here again!

Lovely apartment in Akureyri

  • 5 of 5

The apartment worked very well for our requirements as a family of four. The apartment contained the things we needed, was very cozy, and our hosts were most hospitable and helpful. The road outside offered the most splendid view over Akureyri, and the apartment was situated within walking distance of the city centre.

Great place to stay in Akureyri!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for 3 nights in April 2014. It was the perfect place to stay in Akureyri. The apartment is on a quiet street with plenty of parking, a view of the city and close to running/walking paths. It is only a short walk from downtown and a quick drive to the ski hill. The apartment was clean, comfortable and larger than we'd expected. It is stylishly put together and very cute! The apartment contained all that we needed to cook our meals. Margret and Gummi were incredible hosts, and available when we needed them. We wish we could have stayed longer and would definitely stay at this location again.
