“Very comfortable apartment in an excellent location”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

We stayed 3 nights in a one bedroomed apartment. The location was central Reykjavik. Kitchen/dining facilities were excellent for a short city break. Longer stays might require a dishwasher/washing machine. All rooms were very clean and well equipped. Large double bed was very comfortable. Traffic noise could be heard but this should be expected in such a central location and since we were out most of the nights looking for the Northern Lights this wasn't really a problem.
Rey apartments is located very close to many city centre attractions, shops, bars, restaurants.
Would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others.

Excellent location right next to main street. Clean with a nice kitchen/living area. Wifi was great and staff were very kind. Extra towels in cupboard and tea/coffee etc in cupboards. Felt very homely and quaint.
One bedroom apartment - The beds were crammed into quite a small place. Ok for a family but a bit difficult for 4 adults. No dishwasher and no washing machine which I think should be included in any apartment. Bathroom floods with showering as glass doors don't close properly. No plugs near mirrors for the females (there were three of us so it became a small problem)

The location of this apartment couldn't be better. It is sitting in the center of a quieter area with those amazing little shops unlike the tourist area shops. We stayed at Rey Apartments for a total of 2 nights with 3 of us. They set up 3 beds for us (1 double and 2 singles) in the sleeping area, which makes it a little crowded. The kitchen/living area was big enough that most of the time we just stay there when we are not sleeping.

The street could get loud during the night and the apartment is not very sound proof. You can hear everything from morning traffic to late night drunk talks/singing... Parking could be a big issue here. There is a large parking lot like 2 mins walk from the apartment, but it is almost always full so is the street parking. We arrived pretty late the first night, so all the nearby parking were full and we were circling around for a while and had to park like 5 mins away. Parking is free after certain time (I forgot the exact time) to like 10 in the morning. So you just gotta move your car or go put in for the meter before 10 if you plan on stay in late.

The apartment is clean and has all the basic kitchen amenities, but I wouldn't see myself making a full meal in the kitchen. Just simple breakfast or late night snack.

We stayed at Rey Apartments for a total of 4 nights during our trip to Iceland and loved it!! It is in a very convenient location which was walking distance to many shops/restaurants/bars. It is also a 5 min walk away from a supermarket so you can buy food and cook in their huge, full-service kitchen, which came complete with cutlery, water kettle, dishwasher...everything you need. I was traveling with my family so it was nice to all be together but still have our own space - it truly felt like a home away from home. I definitely recommended staying at Rey Apartments over a traditional hotel. I have no complaints and would be happy to stay here again! Thanks Rey Apartments!

- rooms were well-designed
- full kitchen and self-catering facilities were provided -cutlery was clean and easy to use (we toasted bread and ham)

we stayed here for 4 nights on holiday and were thrilled with it. we were disappointed to leave.
has great kitchen amenities, good wifi, friendly staff, english telly channels as well, a fridge too so that you aren't forced to go out every day to the supermarket (which is a short walk away).

Shopping streets surround the apartment, a vegetarian restaurant and a few bars down the bottom of the street. Best coffee i've ever had down the road and accross the street.

really great apartment, would highly recommend. I don't see how there could be a better place to stay in Reykjavik.

Room Tip: studio was lovely, quite large, not cramped.

I stayed here for a week and was so pleased with the accommodation. It was clean, spacious and convenient. Located just off the main street, it was handy for popping back at lunchtime for something to eat, and well located for a supermarket - about 5 mins away. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
