The BEST location in historic Reykjavík with a 3 minute walk to the town center and bus stop #1 where you meet most sightseeing busses. The flat is sparkling clean, well equipped, and has a very comfortable bed. The host responds quickly to emails and even met us at the bus stop. Having owned an American travel agency for the past 25 years, I would recommend this place to my clients without hesitation.

Sali's studio is absolutely perfect to use as a base to discover Reykjavik and Iceland. Warm, inviting and well-appointed this studio and it's off-street parking are a wonderful Pied-a-terre!!

Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect apartment for our Reykjavik stay. Walking distance to everything we wanted plus a place to park our rental car. Sali was a great host, and we will recommend this place to all friends coming to Iceland (which is how we found it)!

Great Unit, Host and Locale - Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We initially planned to stay in a downtown hotel for our first visit to Iceland but spotted Sali's rental and so glad we did. Cozy and comfortable with everything we needed and a location that can't be beat - walkable to all the important spots in Reykjavik. Plus he was a great host, met us at the unit after our early morning arrival and offered advice on areas to visit and see. Plus off street parking for our rental car. We hope to visit Iceland again soon as its a truly magical place and we'd stay with Sali again. Highly recommend!

Beautiful apartment, excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

This well decorated, impeccably clean, well located apartment is perfect for an Iceland adventure. It is equipped with everything you need and is very comfortable. It's walking distance to many restaurants, shops, and the waterfront and is in close proximity to the highway! The owner was fantastic and communication was excellent throughout the process. He was welcoming and responded to any questions very promptly, if not immediately. I highly recommend this apartment. Thank you for everything, Sali.

Car: not necessary

The newly renovated apartment is located in the centre of Reykjavik, 300 meters from the Althingi (the parliament). The house has a charming history. Our next door neighbours are the Russian, Canadian, Indian, and French embassies.

The airport bus will drop you off and pick you up, just 50 steps from here. Although the apartment is in down town Reykjavik, it is a quiet place and peaceful.

All of the main Reykjavik attractions are in a short walking distance, as well as the great restaurants.
