Nice apartment in central Reykjavik

We live in central Reykjavik. Our street is the 2nd from Laugavegur, Reykjavik's main shopping street, so we are just 1-2 minute walk from the downtown area. Our neighborhood is nevertheless quiet with very little distraction. There are many attractions within short walking distance, there's a swimming pool just around the corner, and many restaurants and coffee shops close by.

Our apartment is on the 1st floor of the building (up 8 steps). It has 3 bedrooms; one room with a double bed and two rooms with a single bed. Our bathroom has a bathtub and a shower. Washing machine is in the basement (down 8 steps) in a common laundry room with two others. There are 9 apartments in our building, and all our neighbors are very genuine and kind.
