I stayed here for four nights in January, in the Alexandrine suite, named after the Queen of Denmark who stayed here in 1926, when the house was the Icelandic Prime Minister's residence. It was such a lovely apartment that I was reluctant to go out at times! There was a sitting room with sofa and armchair, with a small kitchen and breakfast bar. This led to a hallway off which the bath and shower room was located and then the bedroom at the end. There were windows all round as it is a corner suite. The bed was even more comfortable than mine at home and I slept well every night. There is some noise from the club across the road but had I not read the review on here complaining about it I would have taken little notice. On arrival there is orange juice, coffee, tea, cornflakes, milk supplied and there is also a stocked drinks fridge. No prices advertised and as I didn't take any I can't report if they were good value or not. The suite was well equipped with good quality furnishings and crockery/glassware. Probably a kitchen knife and a saucepan, rather than just a deep frying pan would be useful additions. Salt and pepper is provided, which is often not the case in apartments.
There are two supermarkets within a short walk so it is easy to cater for yourself. There are also several restaurants within a short walk and the main shopping street is one block away.
The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. They happily booked tours, checked prices and made recommendations for all local facilities. If the tour pick up was late they called, without being asked, to find out what was happening.
Wifi was free and very fast and there is satellite television in both the sitting room and bedroom.
I really can't recommend this more highly, I'll certainly go back.
