My dad and I stayed at Ambassade Apartments when we recently visited Iceland and had a truly excellent experience. We stayed in the two bedroom apartment on the top floor with great windows overlooking the city. The location was phenomenal! It was a 3 minute walk to everything. The owner, Olafur, and the caretaker, Lis, were extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful in making all our activity reservations. All the apartments were gut renovated about two years ago and were exceptionally clean and new. The furnishings were modern - just as nice as the pictures. There was also a hot tub, which is a rare amenity for an urban hotel in Reykjavik and we loved using it at the end of very active days. One of the great benefits to staying in an apartment versus a traditional hotel was that we had a mini-kitchenette to keep snacks and drinks (and the apartment was a 30 second walk from the Bonus supermarket, which is the only place to buy food in the town). Iceland is exceptionally expensive, pretty close to London prices, so I definitely appreciated being able to keep a few small things in a fridge versus ordering a diet coke for 5 euros every time, lol. All in all a great experience and we will be back at Ambassade the next time we visit Reykjavik.
