Fantastic location for the centre of Reykjavík

  • 5 of 5

The location of the apartment was perfect for the centre of Reykjavík where all the shops were. The church was just up the road and helped as a good marker for getting back to the apartment. It was also just a short walk to the old harbour and Harpa where you can get a free shuttle bus to Perlan Museum. The apartment was clean and had everything you would need for your stay (especially if you want to cut costs by cooking your own meals 😉). It was comfortable and lovely and warm - only one thing I would have found a lidded casserole oven bowl useful 😉. The whole booking process was extremely easy and communications with the owners were easy and quick and loved all the information they provided right at the start of the booking. All in all we had a fantastic holiday in Iceland and would certainly love to go back again and would certainly book this apartment again. Thank you Mark and wishing you and your family a very happy new year.

Cozy home, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The Red House is the perfect spot for a few days in Reykjavik. The home had a nice big table for playing games during the dark night, complete kitchen for simple cooking, cozy bedrooms and an excellent location. Although we didn't use them the washer and dryer are right in the flat which is nice for mid-trip laundry. We walked everywhere and just had to pop our head outside to have a great view of Hallgrimskirkja. Braud & Co. and Reykjavik Roasters are minutes walk away for breakfast and Laugavegur is very near. Great stay!

Perfect accommodation with perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay in this elegant, fully equipped apartment.

Perfectly placed, in the centre of Reykjavik, just a short stroll from the cathedral.

Great communication from the owner.

Great location, cosy and very well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a whirlwind few days in Reykjavik - what a fantastic place. The apartment was very warm and super clean and tidy. The beds were super comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed, and the shower was really good. The heating was on the whole time so the flat was really warm - which was what you needed when it was -2 outside! The house is right on the street, so there was a little bit of noise as people walked past the window, but it didn't bother us. The supermarket across the road has all the essentials and is open all the time. It's only a short walk into the centre of town and very easy to navigate back being so close to the big church! Mark was a very friendly and communicative owner - and we didn't have any problems. Would love to go back!

Great House! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. As advertised. Great communication throughout. Location was perfect. You can walk everywhere. We had a rental car and parking was easy. Usually a metered spot near house but if not the church always had space. Short walk and free. Would highly recommend and will stay here again on our next visit. Thank you

About Mark Wiles

I am American who married a wonderful Icelandic girl and raised our children in Iceland. We kept these apartments to have a home in Iceland when we return for visits.

Why Mark Wiles chose Miðborg

We waited for the right property to come up for sale, having already decided we wanted to be on Skólavörðustígur. It was always our favorite street in Reykjavik.

What makes this apartment unique

The feeling that we are part of a great city when we are home!
