“a diamond, not a pearl!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We loved Black Pearl! Beautiful, comfortable, spacious, well appointed accommodations with a modern aesthetic. Wonderful, friendly and helpful staff. Especially the Manager, Carla, made us feel as if we were the only guests there (and I know they were sold out!). We have stayed in some of the finest hotels in the US and Caribbean Islands and by comparison, this hotel may be the best one. Also a great location within walking distance to the dining and shopping areas. A great, safe city, too. The pictures on their website is exactly what it looks like. Next time we return to Reykjavik, we will most certainly choose Black Pearl. Our only problem is that we didn't stay longer.

We stayed at the Black Pearl after a NatGeo hike around the country. It was by far the best hotel of the trip. Carla and her staff are wonderful - even arriving early our last morning to make sure that our trip back to the airport went flawlessly. The hotel is in a great location, is bright, with large rooms that are completely set up for a longer stay than we were able to manage. Restaurant suggestions were spot-on, with directions on how to get to them. We loved it! And, as others have noted, be sure to have the in-room breakfast at least once! Thank you, Carla, for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Any room will be good here!

The Black Pearl's serviced apartments are furnished down to the last pin, with state-of-the-art fittings, excellent breakfasts served in suite, and customized tours (that we opted for) ably organized by Mr. Johannes. Take a bow, Ms Carla and Messrs. Marco and Francisco!

After 10 days circumnavigating the Ring Road, we parked our mud-spattered LandCruiser in the parking garage and ensconced ourselves in the luxury of the Black Pearl for a three-day stay. The expansive suite of rooms included a full kitchen (which we used only minimally, but could easily support a long-term stay), wonderful views, and an ultra-modern bath which incorporated a (much welcome) washer and dryer.

Everything about the place spoke of luxury - electronic controls for lighting and HVAC, a private elevator stop with card-key control, high-end appliances throughout. The staff was incredibly helpful, seeing to our various needs (including an extensive breakfast served en suite).

We found it convenient to shopping, sight-seeing, restaurants and museums. As for value, half the suite would easily cost eight times as much in New York (yes, I know, NYC, but still...). I can't recommend it highly enough.

As avid travelers we have stayed in many different hotels all over the world, so we have seen it all.
With Black Pearl hotel we were impressed from the minute we walked in. Centrally located. Parking spot is complimentary if you drive a car. The lobby was small but bright. The staff was smiling and ready to introduce you to the city.

Easy check-in and check-out. Our suite is the smallest in the building; It was spotless clean and came with a bedroom, a modern bathroom with plenty of amenities, a dinning area, and a kitchen with Nespresso machine, microwaves, oven, stoves and cook wares and utensils. Marble floor through out with electronic switch control lightning. Our room include laundry service package and our clean folded clothes were returned in a day, Very impressive.

Besides, the attention to details was what we had enjoyed the most, from borrowing umbrellas, getting boarding passes printed, to restaurant recommendations, the staff was always ready to assisted. They even carried our luggage to our room which not too many staff would want to do this in this part of the world.

There is no restaurant in the hotel, however breakfast can be sent to your room for a charge. A small market 24 (hr)) is within 5 minutes walk and there were tons of eateries in the area. Wifi is complimentary
.
The staff in this hotel are very well-trained and it shows in their customer services. A wonderful experience we look forward to coming again very soon.

The apartment exceeded our expectations! It was spacious for our family of four. Very new, impeccably clean, and wonderfully comfortable. The proximity to shops, restaurants, and the harbor is awesome. The views are beautiful and the balcony very peaceful. The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. One evening while at a nearby restaurant I had a tray full of drinks spilled on me (and my white outfit!). I walked back to the hotel to quickly change. Since the staff had just seen me walk out to dinner not too long before i explained what had happened. She immediately offered to wash my clothes and had them ready for me upon our return that night. Thank you again for that and for adding to our terrific memories of Iceland!

We were a family of 16 ranging in age from 5 to 79 and all loved the hotel. We worked with them to secure our rooms and were put in one wing so we could be near each other. The hotel staff was courteous and helpful bent over backwards to accommodate our needs. The apartments are fully equipped and modern, quiet too. The hotel helped arrange breakfast for our group and upgraded our parents to lovely penthouse rooms. Everything is new and clean. The showers are amazing. The hotel is located walking distance from absolutely everything, just perfect. I highly recommend the Black Pearl!
