After spending two weeks on, and off, the ring road around Iceland, I had but two nights for Reykjavik. I had done my homework, much of it on Trip Advisor, before leaving Oregon and booked The Castle House and Embassy Luxury Apartments largely based on the reviews posted by previous travelers. I simply could not have been happier with the result.
I had the smallest apartment. It was a studio on the ground floor in back and had everything I required and more: one of the most comfortable beds I found in Iceland, a more than fully equipped kitchen, excellent television. (There was even a small, unobtrusive electronic gadget that discreetly released a slight scent, presumably to dispense with any cooking smells. This is a studio apartment after all.)
Heida and the staff were warm, friendly, and did an immaculate job of maintaining my apartment.
The location is impossible to beat, a quiet residential area, steps (about five from my front door) to the National Gallery and moments on foot to the heart of the city.
There was a misunderstanding on the part of the parking police about my parking right in front, but it was efficiently and fairly handled by the apartment management/ownership.
I am not going to relate what I paid for two nights, because I am a bit embarrassed that it was so little for what I got. Suffice it that it was the least by far of any place I stayed in Iceland.
My next trip to Reykjavik will not require any advance research about where to stay. I shall go straight back to the Castle House and Embassy Luxury Apartments.
