The Unique Bridge - Studio Apartment ( 25 m2) has private entrance, located over the river Varmá which runs under the building. The apartment has balcony with a beautiful view over the river and open green area, king size bed, kitchenette, bathroom with shower.

Álafoss is located in Mosfellsbær, only 15 km from the City centre of Reykjavik. Perfectly located for guests seeking the tranquility and nature at the doorsteps of Reykjavik and being on the route of the Golden Circle.

Álafoss played a major role in the wool industry in Iceland starting in 1896 and still producing wool under the name Istex . The wool factory was both economically and socially important as workers came from all over Iceland to work and that created a colourful community with dances, indoor swimming pool and outdoor theatre.

Now the old factory buildings are occupied by the Álafoss wool factory store, restaurant, Sundlaugin (swimming pool) which was converted to a Recording Studio by the well known band Sigur Rós, artists- and crafts studios.

Álafoss Apartments building is connected over the river Varmá to Sundlaugin recording studio.
