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!

Absolutely PERFECT place! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This studio is PERFECT. The owner - Sali- was very welcoming and made us feel right at home. The location couldn't be better- steps away from the main streets (shops, restaurants). The decor is beautifully and thoughtfully done. The bed is very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you would need to make simple meals. The shower (hot water and water pressure) was amazing. To be 100% honest- I have not one negative to say about this place. If I were ever to return - I would stay here and I would highly recommend to anyone.

The perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in Iceland and we could not have picked a better place. The location was amazing and a short walk to everything. The place was lovely, well proportioned and tastefully decorated and equipped. Sali, the owner, was very helpful and friendly and we would highly recommend this apartment.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

First time we have used VRBO and what a wonderful experience. Amazing studio guest house that has been updated in an historical building. It's beautiful. The owner of this property, Sali is a great guy. The apartment has everything you will possibly need during your visit to Iceland. Cool design and cleaner than clean. But the best part was location. Just around the corner from the heart of Reykjavik. Easy walking distance to bars, restaurants, shops and the harbour. Sali was always available and provided answers to our questions. He definitely went above and beyond as our host. Highly recommend this property!

Great location !

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay tremendously in this modern and well appointed studio. What made it more enjoyable was its prime location which allowed us to walk to the main points of interest of Reykjavik, sample top restaurants and well situated to be picked up for some excursions we took. Owner was vey welcoming and the studio very clean. We hope to be back!

The perfect place! Just like home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Tungata 5 was more than we had ever expected. Sali was so pleasant and accommodating. He met us and brought us to the apartment and showed us all we needed to know. The apartment was in pristine condition; clean, beautifully designed and appointed. Sali pays attention to every detail making the apartment feel just like home. We could have stayed forever!

The location was perfect! Close to restaurants, pubs and attractions. Easy walking distance to the harbour.

I don't think we have ever stayed anywhere more convenient or beautiful.

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.
