I stayed for 2 days in the one bed room apartment on 4th floor. The apartment is super modern and very comfortable. You may need sometime to get acquitted to the switch and lighting as it's not as simple. Water pressure was truly a perk as it's so strong. The bed was so comfy and I sleep so well. One...

This is the first time I try an apart-hotel and the experience was great. The apartment is very spacious (Deluxe Suite), with one large bedroom, one large living room which could be used as second bedroom, one equipped kitchen. Total size is about 115 square meters. For the same price, you could only get a Junior Suite of about 32...

Better than a hotel,this place has everything you would need for a stay away from home. The best position in the town near the harbour. High tech lighting which wasn't too hard to operate and really warm all over . Great bathroom with shower and endless toiletries . Spotlessly clean everywhere. Will definitely return on our next visit to Iceland....

The penthouse was lovely, however for the amount of money spent I would of thought that in the master bedroom they could of split the master bed into two single beds. Free coffee and free parking was great and location in Reykjavik was brilliant.

Check in time is 2pm, but if the room is available before that time, it is no problem to check in earlier. This does, however, depend in availability which can change at short notice. If a rooms is not available at your time of arrival, we have complimentary luggage storage facilities. We look forward to welcoming you to the Black Pearl

Dear lvingthedream1234

The weather in Iceland is impossible to predict as it changes every 5 minutes. This year we had an unusually warm December with not so much snow, but this is an exception - December is usually a snowy month for us in Iceland.

Yes, you can buy tickets online through Grayline or Reykjavik Tours. The ride is approximately 45 minutes. The airport bus is just outside of the terminal, on your right side. There is a ticket counter near the exit where you can redeem your voucher.

The bus will take you their main terminal where you will transfer to a smaller bus to your hotel.

if you plan on visiting the Blue Lagoon, I would suggest that you purchase it for the day of your departure as it is 15 minutes from the airport and so you don't waste time traveling back and forth. There is a place where you can store your luggage for a reasonable fee. This can be purchased in addition to to airport transfer.

I am so excited for you!
