Hofdi House, built in 1909, might be one of the most beautiful buildings in all of Reykjavik. It is best known as the location for the 1986 summit meeting of presidents Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbatsjov, a historical event that effectively marked the end of the Cold War.
Hofdi was initially the house of the French consul in Iceland and still bears many signs of its original purpose, such as the letters RF (the abbreviation of the French Republic), the name of the consul and the year of its construction above an inside door.
In addition, the house is believed to be occupied by a ghost, "The White Lady", experienced by a former British Ambassador who once occupied the house. She tried his nerves so badly that he persuaded the British Foreign Office to sell the house.
It is currently used for official receptions and meetings of the municipality and is not open to the public,
