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.

Stylish Central Apartment
This apartment is very nice and the photos are a true depiction. It is in a great location with all the attractions within walking distance. We had several issues on arrival. There are no instructions anywhere to tell you how to operate things,no obvious wifi code( you have to get on the floor and try and read the minute lettering on the router) the heating was not working, the massive window blinds lying on the floor,no working TV and many lightbulbs not working. I ran the " owners number" and an arrangement made for 10.00 am the following day. No one arrived despite my calls and emails. Eventually at 6.00pm a man came and fixed the TV. He did not know how the heating worked and then arranged for a neighbour to come and re hang the blinds. This neighbour came with his wife and they were marvellous and managed the job. What I was not told at that time was that the "neighbour" in fact owned the property and the people who told me they were the owners in fact just rent the apartment from him! I am not happy that the real owner seemed to come to the apartment whenever he wished and actually had been in the apartment whilst we were out "checking things" he also wanted to lift the floor in the bathroom to check out the heating and again came the night before we were leaving with a bag of lightbulbs! We did not let him in. Management of this apartment needs to be stepped up which is a shame as the actual apartment is very nice.
Iceland Layover in July
This apartment was exactly as promised and in a great location. It is on the main shopping and restaurant street and at first I was disappointed it was in the back BUT because it doesn't face the street the bar noise is minimal at 1 am when it is still light out in July! So that turned out to be a plus and there is a great view of the cityscape and rooftops. The rooms were comfy and the apartment perfectly suited for our family of 4. Sigurdur and the staff at Iceland Summer provided the most excellent and detailed instructions for getting the keys after hours and finding the unit which was a little tricky since the door doesn't face the street but is on the side next to the parking lot. We rented a car since the apt has off-street parking which turned out to be a great decision because we could tour the Golden Circle at our own pace. And Iceland was fantastic - what a great time we had. I would definitely return to Iceland and to this rental.
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.
