Clean, great location--close to everything!!!

  • 5 of 5

This studio was perfect for two people. It is near everything-restaurants-shops-roads to get out and explore this beautiful country. Sali was a great host. Met us upon arrival and was VERY accommodating on our final day. The studio had everything we needed and was really clean. I highly recommend this place.

A cozy Viking

  • 5 of 5

The week I chose to visit Reykjavik in February, it turned out that Thor was very angry. Back to back storms with hurricane winds, horizontal snow and rain, and balls of sleet were the reality of the day. I would be ever grateful that I had decided to book this lovely warm flat.

Sali met me there the first morning, allowing an early check-in after my overnight flight. Over the next several days, after venturing outside from time to time with a waterproof camera and gale-proof clothes, I knew I could return at will to a cozy island in the storm. Cancellations and postponements of tours were the order of the day but I had room to spread out, comfortable furniture, a fully functional kitchen, and a collection of books to flip through. When the wind outside sounded as if it had settled a bit, I could wander the few blocks to the Old Waterfront and have my choice of great restaurants. Harpa and several museums were just a short walk away as well. When the rain eased to just an annoying drizzle, the shops and restaurants of Laugavegur, and Hallgrimskirka, were just a bit further walk away.

The experience with this rental was 5-star. It was clean, newly upgraded, and perfectly located for me. I'd stay here again, hopefully with a bit better weather.

Top rated on location, hospitality, cleanliness and safety.

  • 5 of 5

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!

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.
