The space
It´s perfectly located, with a good view, beautiful apartment and all that you need for your home away from home.

Guest access
The entrance to the apartment is located in a small courtyard next to the Reykjavik Downtown Hostel.

The apartment is on the 3rd floor with 3 flights of stairs but no elevator. This should not be any problem for a healty european (or anyone used to old houses without elevators) but the elderly and/or unfit might find it difficult.

Other things to note
The apartment is non-smoking except for the balcony. If you do smoke there, please get rid of the stubs by for example using a bottle. Please don´t throw them onto the neighbors roof ;-)

WiFi
There is high speed optical fiber internet in the apartment
If you have problems with the WiFi, the most basic thing to do is to turn off the router, unplug it for 15 seconds and then restart it. The router is a White 20x15cm box next to the TV.

The living room
The apartment has a TV, decoder with a selection of TV channels (some foreign TV stations) and a digital video player. It should be fairly easy to work out how that all works.
There is a Bose stereo in the living room. A cord that leads from it can plug into smartphones, Ipods, Ipads etc. You will however need to turn up the volume by holding in the + button every time you plug a device.
There are two plants there and you would be doing me and the Icelandic flora a favor if you could pore one glass of water into each pot :-)
Please note that the heaters are quite sensitive to adjustments and they can easily become very hot. If you don´t want a sauna atmosphere, I would recommend that you only turn the knobs a little at a time and please return to the same settings before you leave.

Kitchen.
The kitchen is fully equipped and ready for you to cook anything you like.
There is a fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher etc.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL, THE HOT WATER IS VERY HOT!!! You can easily burn yourself so turn it on slowly. Also note that the hot water is not heated, it comes almost boiling from the ground. It therefore contains a little sulfur which gives it a funny smell. Please don´t cook with it since it might ruin the taste of the food (it´s not dangerous to consume though). You should heat up the cold water in stead.
Please don´t put the knifes or Teflon coated pots and pans in the dishwasher as it can ruin them. Please don´t cut food on teflon coated pots and pans since it ruins the teflon.
The tablets for the dishwasher are under the sink.

Bathroom
PLEASE BE CAREFUL, THE HOT WATER IS VERY HOT!!! You can easily burn yourself so turn it on slowly
There are towels and toilet paper under the sink. If you finish it use a lot of it, please be so kind to at least leave a few rolls for the next guest. toilet paper or paper towels are provided but are not unlimited.
It´s a nice habit in Iceland to rinse the shower room with cold water after you shower. It decreases the gathering of sulfur and silica and keeps the shower room clean.
Please turn on the went before you shower to let the steam out.
Before check out, make sure that the towels are left on the radiators or where they can get dry.

Bedroom
The bedroom has a large closet and you can use the left side of it.
Inside it is an iron and ironing board, steam iron, vacuum cleaner, blankets etc.
The bed is 160x200cm and is from a dutch manufacturer which makes quality beds. I love sleeping in it and I hope you do too!
When you leave, please leave just a little crack on the bedroom window to help with ventilation.

Laundry room
There is a laundry room with a washing machine next door. Just open the door next door and then another door (forward to the right) and you´ll find it.
The washing machine you can use is the AEG machine on the right next to the door. You can use the radiators in the apartment or the clothes lines in the laundry room to dry your clothes.

Parking
There is free parking 100m west of the apartment, west of a street called Ægisgata. There is also an indoor car park 100m east of the apartment, at Vesturgata 7.

I´m an airline professional, mostly residing in Brussels in Belgium. I have a passion for travel and travel a lot, both professionally and for leisure. I have a young son in Reykjavik who is the main reason for keeping an apartment in Iceland. I spend a few days a month there and then rent it out on airbnb to get additional revenue to pay off the mortgage. After living in Copenhagen in Denmark, Berlin and Rostock in Germany I speak Danish and German along with English and Icelandic of course. I then hope my time in Brussels gives me a chance to learn French.

During your stay
Unfortunately, since I live in Brussels, I am usually not present in Reykjavik so I won´t have much interaction with guests except via messages or phone calls. I will however make sure you arrive to a very nice and a clean apartment. I have a company dedicated to servicing Airbnb apartments that takes care of the cleaning etc. I stay in the apartment one week a month and make sure nothing is missing or broken.
