The small size of the capital means that transport around the city is very good, from a suburb on the outskirts you can be in downtown in less than twenty minutes. If you travel in the other direction, you can be watching the majestic glaciers in under an hour!

The neighborhood is surrounded by the sea and many properties in the village have an ocean view. The town itself holds the Gretta lighthouse and is a tourist attraction in itself. Transport to the center of Reykjavik from Seltjarnarnes should take no more than 30 minutes.

One of the cheapest options in terms of price is to rent a room in Reykjavik in a shared apartment. As the city itself is pretty expensive, even by European standards, funding an entire apartment on one salary can be challenging. That's why many people choose to share an apartment with friends or colleagues.

To rent a room in Reykjavik is also a great way to find a new social group, which is especially important for those people moving to the city without many contacts. Rooms in Reykjavik are easier to come by than entire apartments, as many people have a spare room or two that they dont mind subletting to expats for a share of the rent.
