The location is just great, being in the main commercial street and you can easily walk everywhere (old harbour, Hlemmur station...) There's a wide variety of restaurants and shops in the neighbourhood. The studio we stayed in was very clean and well serviced, we had everything we needed to feel like home! We even had a jacuzzi tub in the...

This "Apartment Hotel" offers spacious apartments in a great location right in the middle of Reykjavik. That's about all though. There are buses stopping outside the reception for various excursions (or the airport) every hour, so it is very easy to get around and every main attraction in the city is within easy walking distance. The staff is very friendly...

We were in this apparthotel 4 nights and although the staff was helpful and kind ,especially the blonde girl clerk who received us , it's difficult to call this apparthotel a luxury one for these reasons : The appartment we received was with a bathroom not in the appartment but on the same floor outside the appartment . The parking...

I feel we got a pretty good deal on this place considering the location, though I think the impeccable website/photos are a bit misleading as it is not quite as modern as you are led to believe. The apartments are simple and straightforward, certainly clean enough to make it worthwhile. During high season in Iceland the price is very competitive...

I agree with what many have said. Great location, fair price in context, reasonable room. Downside is cleaning (rare) and nonfunctioning tv and stereo (I reported it but got no result). No laundry. We had an apartment in another building, so it was quiet even on friday night. Agree with others that blinds dont keep midsummer light out.

We stayed in a 1 bed apartment which was down the street from the room with a view building. You went through a locked gate on the main road and it was a ground floor apartment, the only people with access to the locked gate were the other people staying in the apartments, I think there was 3 in total....

We (3 couples) stayed in a 3 bed apartment on the 3rd floor which overlooked the main street....so basically a street view. There were 2 double bedrooms which actually had a third bed in both and then a twin room. Lovely large kitchen, dining, living room with all the equipment you need for a short stay.

The room we had (304) has a nice and simple interior. You'll lack nothing in that matter. BUT be aware that the room is very noisy! The garbage/trash truck/collection will be picked up EVERY morning at about 0430 outside! If you do not have an exceptional sleeping heart you'll wake up. And there's a pub across the street where people...

The location of these apartments is ideal, but we got one of the rooms with absolutely no view. we also did not get an en-suite bathroom, but had to use one across the hall, which is a major drawback. The noise did not bother us (it is quite noisy, but that comes with the central location), but I would expect...

As others have noted, if you come here be sure you realize that not all the rooms offer a scenic view, and the noise if a BIG factor. I am staying in May and it does not get dark, and I think that is why people party all night. You CANNOT sleep with the noise unless you drown it out...

“The name ROOM WITH A VIEW is not really appropriate, as the only view you will see from your room is the streets, and the roof tops.”
