Location & Nearby
Embassy Apartments Downtown (also known as Embassy Villa) is located in the Old West Side of Reykjavik city, 0.6 miles (1 kilometer) from the harbor walking directly through the city streets. A little more if you access the lovely Sculpture Shore Walk along the waterfront. The Old West Side is in the corner of the city closest to the water in a residential area.
You may be happy to see that Embassy Apartments Downtown is right across the street from a 24-hour children’s playground. Tjornin park, a picturesque 24-hour park, pond, and playground, is only 800 meters from the villa if you walk. The lush greenery of Hljomskala Park is right across the street.
But perhaps the city center shopping and nightlife is more to your liking. If that’s the case, then right across from Tjornin pond is the National Gallery of Iceland. Carry on northeast and you’ll soon stumble across 101 Reykjavik Brew Food, Bastard Brew Food, and Sjavargrillio. Keep walking north and you’ll see the Culture House Museum. Back up 110 yards (100 meters) and there is the Icelandic Punk Museum. And shopping, shopping, shopping. All of this is less than a mile (1.6 kilometers) from Embassy Apartments Downtown.
You may want to walk the 0.6 miles (1 kilometer) from Embassy Apartments Downtown and explore the harbor. If so, check out the Saga Museum of History or the Maritime Museum. There are also two great features of Iceland; FlyOver Iceland simulates a bird’s eye view of Iceland’s breathtaking scenery. The Whales of Iceland is another exhibit worth checking out. And then there’s shopping, eating, and enjoying the fishing boats moored in the harbor.
