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.

Perfect location and property

  • 5 of 5

This property met every expectation from the initial contact with Sali. The location could not be any more perfect - literally steps from the City Hall pick up for most tours and also the bus service to and from the airport. Walking distance to multiple shops (including groceries), bars and restaurants. Sail met us upon arrival, walked us to the apartment and was most gracious in spite of it being almost midnight. Thank you. The apartment is pleasant, clean and equipped with everything anyone could need during a holiday stay. It was wet and chilly while we were visiting but the apartment was very cosy. If I had to offer a slight negative it would be that it is a little dark inside on a dull day - opening all the blinds fully impedes privacy somewhat. A mute point compared to our overall enjoyment.

Fabulous condo in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We were in this condo for a week in July 2017. The condo is excellent: the bed is king-size and super comfortable; the bathroom is great with a terrific shower and washer/dryer; the kitchen is well stocked and very convenient. It is 3 minutes (yes, 3) to the city centre and yet it is perfectly quiet. The condo is also beautifully designed and decorated. The owner is a lovely person who genuinely cares about the comfort of his guests.

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.

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
