My wife and I enjoyed 6 great nights at Sali's "private" apartment building. A 5 minute walk to the city center only happened if we walked slowly. Location was perfect since we decided on no rental car and everything was within walking distance. The apartment itself was nicely laid out with attention to detail for either a short or lengthy stay. Pictures cannot do the TV set-up justice. Sali's creation transformed a single large room into distinct bedroom and living room. It was the star of the apartment.
Sali and his daughters live next door and were available for any questions or assistance, even inviting us to see the view from his 5th floor apartment (quite a view). Welcoming host is an understatement, especially since he arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport. Any future trips to Iceland will have one less variable, since we will stay with Sali again.
