It is estimated that between 1.500 and 2.000 apartments are now being used to accommodate tourists in need of short-term rental. This includes apartment hotels which rent out 340 registered short-term apartments.

The new numbers show staggering growth as just last year 600 apartments in Reykjavík were listed on AirBnB.
