About Sigurdur Gislason
I, Sigurdur, run this small company since 2010. My goal is to provide a great accommodation service for tourists to enjoy their trip of a lifetime. I run a few apartments in Reykjavik.
Sigurdur Gislason purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Sigurdur Gislason chose Miðborg
This old charming apartment building has these two wonderful apartments and is next a public garden next to the city pond. Here you and your family and friends are optimally situated with only a 6-8 minute walk from the crossing of Laugavegur and Laekjargata streets which mark the very center of the old Reykjavik and some of Reykjavik's best restaurants, cafés and the well known Laugavegur the main shopping street. Still you can enjoy the peace and calmness of this friendly neighborhood in close vicinity to most of the Foreign Embassies.
What makes this Apartment unique
Many of our guests have told us that we are so optimally close to the life of the city center but still without the sounds of it's night life. Some feel better one floor up with a better view but still others admire the fact that a family or friends of 6 people can so well be accommodated in the three bedrooms. Most people who stay with us really love the living area and the atmosphere that we have made by picking furniture and amenities. Our place is a real home-away-from-home.

Beautiful flat in a lovely house with a great location near the lake.
Five adults stayed here after a multi-day hike and found everything we needed. Great coffee machine with everything needed to enjoy coffee and tea. Nice kitchen and nice living room. Recommend this for everyone.
Great location. We were only there two nights but it served our needs perfectly. Beds were comforta
Clean. However, Shower taps dripped constantly. Otherwise suited our needs.
Thank you for your review, we will take a look at the shower taps.
Horrible experience at this stay. Apartment double booked and not available when we reached.
This was a very bad experience. We had booked for two weekends with our roadtrip around the island in the middle. When we reached the apartment after 6 hour drive we could not get in as the greedy company had double booked the apartment. For next 2-3 hours we were given the go around. We were a group of 4 specifically needing three bedrooms in one apartment. After endlesss wait we were offered 2 separate apartments and made to stay separate from the group. No refund was provided. This is the worst experience we have had with homeaWay and the company that looks after these apartments in Reykjavik. Best avoid. They are undependable to say the least. We will make sure none of our friends ever rent from these guys in Reykjavik. Homeaway should remove their listings for a scam and pathetic attitude.
This double booking was a mistake that I made and I am so sorry that this happened ... it was not made by greed it was simply because there were two separate bookings for the same person (does not happen very often) and I accidentally took it as just one booking....
In the first phone call we did tell the guests that we would find them something else and we offered them to stay in a two bedroom apartment and just relax while waiting (they did refuse).
We did find them two apartments in the same building (with other renting company) and these two apartments are often rented out as one, just on two floors. We gladly paid for these apartments so we could not afford to give a full refund as well (we are just a small family company with four apartments).
We did everything in our power to make the guests comfortable and are so sorry that this happened.
We did talk to HomeAway and explained the situation and they very happy with the way we dealt with it.
Our Iceland Home
The apartment was perfect for the four of us. It was clean, spacious, comfortable and close to every thing. The faucet in the kitchen was "super" difficult to turn off , even for the guys. We did ask that it be fixed , but alas, it didn't happen during our stay. The lack of essential staples was disappointing....sugar, spices, cooking oil, can opener, items we usually find in other VRBOs. But all in all, we had a great time and enjoyed our stay. We would book this apartment again.
Thank you for your response... The faucet is fixed and I have brought some more things to the kitchen...
Lovely apartment in a fantastic neighborhood! Perfect for our family!
The apartment had everything we needed to make our first trip to Reykjavik outstanding. Perfect location!! The managers were extremely responsive to our one minor problem with the TV.
Well... we want the TV to work to relax after a long day...
Thank you for your stay
Convenient, cozy apartment near city center
Our family of four stayed for two nights over Christmas and really enjoyed the apartment. Laufey was a huge help, finding dinner reservations for us on the holidays (critical) and recommending grocery stores, etc. the apartment was clean and comfortable for all of us. The location worked great, we didn't use the car at all, just walked everywhere. Nice to be across from the park and the lake. Hope to return!
Thank you for your kind words.... good to have such happy guests :-)
The Hallgrimskirkja church is a 5 minute's walk away. The Harp music house is a 12 minute's walk and the apartment is located on Laugavegur the main shopping street.
