Beautiful, well designed, perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed 6 nights at this charming studio apartment. Which means we stayed long enough to use every feature, every appliance, and experience the location both on the weekend and during the week. I highly recommend it. Sali has designed the space exceedingly well, the furnishings are comfortable, the layout efficient -- plus it's beautifully and perfectly located. With restaurants as expensive as they are, have access to a fully fitted kitchen was a big plus. One of the best HomeAway apartments I've ever experienced - if not the best.

Wonderful stay in the heart of the city and the lake

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. The studio is well-decorated and stocked with necessities that was a wonderful surprise. It is a short distance to the center of town and close to the lake with view of the wild birds or for a stroll after dinner when it is still light out at 10 pm. Sali was a great host and he paid attention to details like having bath robes for us and bluetooth sound. The kitchen was well stocked with necessities so we didn't have to buy anything after getting out of the plane. The bed is super comfy and the laundry machine is a plus. I will highly recommend this place for couples.

My husband I just returned home from 6 days in Iceland. We used this beautiful studio as our home base for wandering around Reykjavik and long day trips outside of the city.

We were so grateful that Sali met us there at 7:30 am and we were able to sleep a bit after our flight. We ended up renting a car and it was so convenient to have parking.

Some of our days were long and it was so nice to return to such a tranquil setting to end our day.

Very conveniently located to everything we wanted to see in Reykjavik and we could walk everywhere in town.

We loved Iceland and I hope to return someday. We would definitely stay here again.

Super friendly helpful owner and wonderful property.

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about what a great experience this was. Sali was amazing and met us at 6am so that we could drop off our bags after our insanely early flight in. He very kindly offered us a place to rest for a while but we decided to walk down and go for an early morning visit to the hot baths down the road (which they call a 'swim') which I highly recommend. The apartment itself was perfect. A quick walk to anywhere we wanted to go, the perfect size, relaxing atmosphere and very comfortable bed. I highly recommend this place.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from our first trip to Iceland, and had a wonderful stay at Sali's studio! The place is beautiful, and had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The studio is well decorated and incredibly clean. The location was great and it was in easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. Sali was so friendly and happy to answer any questions we had. We'd highly recommend this place and would definitely stay here again!

Great Reykjavik apartment - beautiful & close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I recently spent a week in Reykjavik, and along with all of the amazing things Iceland has to offer, we truly enjoyed the time spent in our "home away from home"! Sali was great - met us at the drop-off point from FlyBus (VERY close to the apartment) and even had some food/beverages for us, which was much appreciated after a night of travel!

The apartment was beautifully designed, not just for looks, but efficiency also, with plenty of room for our belongings. We rent vacation homes/apartments often, and I have to say, this might have been my favorite. The location was also perfect. We were on a quiet street, but a very short walk to the heart of the city, with all of the restaurants, shops, sights, swimming pools, as well as the harbor area. As I mentioned earlier, the drop-off/pick-up spot for our trip to & from the airport (and the excursions we took) was so convenient at the Reykjavik Centrum Hotel. I enjoy cooking & going to markets while visiting other cities/countries, and grocery stores/bakeries were also very close by. As anyone who has visited Iceland knows, restaurant meals are quite expensive, so it was also a way to balance eating out with (the more economical) eating in!

Sali was an attentive, responsive host. We would definitely recommend this apartment and would love to rent it again if our travels ever lead us back to Iceland!

Walking distance to best restaurants
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.
