About Sigurdur Gislason

I, Sigurdur, run this small company since 2010. My goal is to provide a great accommodation service for tourists to enjoy their trip of a lifetime. I run a few apartments in Reykjavik.

Sigurdur Gislason purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Sigurdur Gislason chose Reykjavik

This charming apartment building has these two luxury apartments and is on the main walking street. Here you and your family and friends are optimally situated with only a 6-8 minute walk from the crossing of Laugavegur and Laekjargata streets which mark the very center of the old Reykjavik and some of Reykjavik's best restaurants, cafés and the well known Laugavegur the main shopping street. Still you can enjoy the peace and calmness of this friendly neighborhood in close vicinity to most of the Foreign Embassies.

What makes this apartment unique

Many of our guests have told us that we are so optimally close to the life of the city center but still without the sounds of it's night life. Some feel better one floor up with a better view but still others admire the fact that a family or friends of 6 people can so well be accommodated in the three bedrooms. Most people who stay with us really love the living area and the atmosphere that we have made by picking furniture and amenities. Our place is a real home-away-from-home.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Pros: “the set up, décor... quality of furniture, kitchen well equipped, bedsheets clean, apartment quite spacious”

Cons: "difficulty to open the entrance door, needed a safe for keeping precious items eg jewels, cash"

Our Iceland Home

The apartment was perfect for the four of us. It was clean, spacious, comfortable and close to every thing. The faucet in the kitchen was "super" difficult to turn off , even for the guys. We did ask that it be fixed , but alas, it didn't happen during our stay. The lack of essential staples was disappointing....sugar, spices, cooking oil, can opener, items we usually find in other VRBOs. But all in all, we had a great time and enjoyed our stay. We would book this apartment again.

The apartment had everything we needed to make our first trip to Reykjavik outstanding. Perfect location!! The managers were extremely responsive to our one minor problem with the TV.

Convenient, cozy apartment near city center

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four stayed for two nights over Christmas and really enjoyed the apartment. Laufey was a huge help, finding dinner reservations for us on the holidays (critical) and recommending grocery stores, etc. the apartment was clean and comfortable for all of us. The location worked great, we didn't use the car at all, just walked everywhere. Nice to be across from the park and the lake. Hope to return!

Beautiful apartment close to everything! Was a little tricky to find, but could walk to a lot of the attractions. We can't wait to come back to Iceland! It is so nice to have space to spread out and relax. We would highly recommend this rental!
