Fantastic centrally located apartment (apartment 30 with balcony) overlooking the city lake. It has everything you want for a comfortable, warm, and independent stay in Rejkjavik. The apartment is spotlessly clean with a lovely welcome pack of tea's coffee milk etc. If required they are serviced daily but very otherwise you are not bothered by anyone. The underfloor heating in the wet room is a luxury touch and great after mountain treks and Northern light spotting !!!!
We cannot recommend these apartments highly enough, you are in strolling distance of restaurants, bars, the harbour, and all the shops.
If you're going to Reyjavik, STAY HERE, You won't be disappointed at all.
We've given the "Restaurant" an excellent not because they have one but because you are so close to so many lovely eating places.

Room Tip: The 2 second floor apartments with balcony overlooking the lake. (You can smoke on the balcony)

What a fantastic place to stay! We LOVED our stay at Castle House and Embassy Luxury Apartments. We stayed for 3 nights over Christmas for our honeymoon and had the best time. We had paid extra to have breakfast bought for us and we felt that it was definitely worth the money. We had also been left some treats because it was our honeymoon. We were in apartment 41 which had a view of a frozen lake. There were people ice-skating on the lake, which made it really feel like Christmas. The apartment was a good size and had everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen was small but so practical. The lounge room had a pull out sofa which we used to lay on and watch Christmas movies on the TV (the TV had a USB port). The location was perfect- only a 5-minute walk to the shops. When we return to Reykjavik we will definitely stay here

Had an awesome stay in castle house, stayed in appartment 62 in November. Stayed there for 6 nights and it was the best location ever. We went on several excursions and saw where others were staying and we knew we made the right decision. Its close to town and a short walk from all the places you want to see, easy for tour companies to find you (a bit cold waiting outside but it is iceland!!) and right in front of lake. I loved it and so did my partner, couldnt fault it and will definately be staying here again. The appartment looked exactly like the pictures and we even had milk in the fridge when we arrived so could have a cuppa after travelling. Perfect for self catering in Iceland :) loved it and thank you for being so good!

My partner and I have just returned from a brilliant week's stay in apartment No.62. It's a studio apartment located on the ground floor off the Garden. It was very clean and had everything you could possibly need for a self-catering holiday. Upon arrival there were tea bags, coffee, sugar and even a small carton of milk, so you don't need to rush out to the supermarket straight away. Also provided in the apartment was shower gel, soap, washing up liquid, kitchen towel, dishcloth & tea towel, iron & hairdryer.

It was great to have satellite TV (which had all the English TV channels) and fast WiFi also.

The apartments are located near the city lake or 'The Pond' as it is called in Reykjavik. Great location, very quiet and within walkable distance of the main shopping street and harbour. There is a Supermarket 3 to 5 minute walk away (called Bonus) which is handy.

My only tip for Reykjavik itself is take snow grips for your shoes. Some of the pavements were very icy and these allowed us to walk confidently on the ice.

Would definitely recommend the Castle House apartments.

My partner and I stayed in Apartment 30 in January 2014, and enjoyed every minute of our stay at CHLA. The location is perfect: easy pick up for all the tour companies, a few minutes' walk to either side of town, and right in front of the lake, which (being completely frozen over) was just beautiful (there is no noise, except from the geese).
The apartment itself is a perfect size for two people, it is warm and welcoming (fresh flowers on the table and milk in the fridge), and is excellently equipped with everything you could need (even a dishwasher). The attention to detail really made our stay comfortable: local phone calls are free from the phone in the apartment, which is really useful for making reservations and checking if your tour bus is on the way.
We didn't meet any of the staff while we were there (keys were left in an envelope, and we got a call to confirm that we got in alright), but I felt that if anything had gone wrong, they would have been ready to help.
I really cannot understand why this place hasn't a perfect 5-star rating. With prices like this, and service to beat the best hotels, it is by far the best place to stay in Reykjavik!

Room Tip: Apartment 30 is lovely: we didn't use the balcony because it was too cold, but I imagine it woul...

My wife and I stayed in Apartment 10 for 3 nights as part of our 'minimoon'. The apartments were lovely, they are very cosy (which was needed given how cold it was!), extremely comfortable and there was plenty of space. We had asked for breakfast for the following morning which was already supplied when we got there and there was ample food (so much that it lasted pretty much all 3 days). The kitchen had pretty much everything that is needed and there are several local supermarkets nearby.

The apartments are right next to the national art gallery (which was unfortunately shut while we were there) and on a stone's throw from Tjornin (the lake).

We had originally hired a car from SADCars (who were extremely helpful and recommended) to see all the sites outside of the city, but given the torrential weather we witnessed on Christmas Day, we were unable to see the sites and so did a tour with Grayline Excursions (who again, I would thoroughly recommend).

We had an amazing time in Reykjavik and would definitely recommend Castle House!

We stayed in apartment 62 in December. We were so pleased to find that the apartment was adorably decorated, very spacious, and very comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with everything that we needed. We had long adventurous days in Iceland, and it was always nice to come back to the apartment at night to relax.
A couple of helpful pieces of information: the apartments are very centrally located. Just a short walk and you are in the center of the city. Also, Reykjavik Excursions, which I also highly recommend, picked us up right in front of the apartment building, and dropped us off after the tours on the main street right at the corner. It was VERY convenient.
We were so sad to leave Iceland and Castle House, and we cannot wait to return! When we do come back to Reykjavik we will most definitely be booking with Castle House again. Thank you for a truly lovely stay!
