We had a wonderful stay at Forseala apartment. The apartment was cosy and with all the facilities we needed. The location was fantastic - no more than 15 mins to the harbour area and everything else much closer.

Located in a lovely private garden with patios and green spaces in a quiet residential area next to Laugavegur, Reykjavik's main shopping street. Surrounded with Cafes, restaurants, museums, art ...More galleries and other sites off interest. A perfect "home away from home" for families and friends as well as for the reunion of the greater family.
