Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stayed here for two nights at the start of our trip and one at the end. Ideally situated for everything in Reykjavik centre. Our room was small but very comfortable. Good sized bathroom with Molton Brown products. Walk in shower, monsoon shower option, excellent water pressure. Very clean Breakfast was good, loved the fruit selection plus choice of Skyr and yoghurt. Staff friendly. Dinner in the restaurant is excellent with the food a high quality and beautifully presented. Reservations definitely recommended. Reception staff are really helpful and friendly. Two minutes walk from Bus stop 3 where trips depart Recommended.

Hotel's Favourite
This is our second time staying at Apotek and we can’t say enough good things about it. Everyone there is incredibly friendly and helpful. The restaurant/bar is fantastic. The rooms are so comfortable and cozy- plus the shower is one of the best in a hotel that I’ve experienced! We stayed last year for our wedding with several members of our family and friends. Everyone had the same great experience. This year we stayed for our 1 year anniversary. I had asked if they could recommend a bakery to order a cake to help us celebrate. They went above and beyond and not only found a great bakery, but actually ordered it for us and had it delivered to the hotel. The morning our our anniversary they set up a celebratory table with a card wishing us a happy anniversary, and of course, the delicious cake. We can’t wait to spend more visits with Apotek- we wouldn’t stay anywhere else!

Well placed in the centre of reykjavik ideally situated for a range of bars and restaurants. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were lovely and comfortable as were the beds. The room had a large wardrobe for hanging coats etc but lacked storage for additional clothing. Such as T shirts jumpers fleeces, it's cold in February the storage was OK for our 4 days but any longer it might feel frustrating having no drawer storage. That said don't let it put you off as it's location provides everything It's also close to the bus stop 3 where the local attractions have a generic pick up point. Tha attached restaurant is also excellent. On the food side the Breakfast has a wide range of food to suit everyone's taste

Very cute hotel! The staff are wonderful and the breakfast buffet is fantastic! I was arriving at 7am and wanted to be assured of a room at that time, so I booked a pre-night. But the couple checking it at the same time was able to get an early check in (also at 7am) for just 50Euro. So if you’re willing to risk it, more affordable to try for an early check in and skip booking the extra night.

Small and elegant boutique hotel perfectly sutuated in downtown Reykjavik. My only complaint is the bed could have been a bit more supportive... and I would have loved a sauna but I think that is for bigger hotels. Overall a fantastic stay.

A really clean and comfortable stay, easy to access our tours and plenty of restaurant choices nearby, as well as a 24/7 supermarket round the corner. We didn’t try the restaurant, but it’s a great hotel in a very good location. There was some confusion as to whether we could use the gym at their next door sister hotel for free or not - one of us was allowed to use it for free, one wasn’t, but I do feel it should be free. There was a very bad smell from the bathroom drains when we arrived, easily solved by flushing the shower with hot water, but checks should be done in advance.
