We only stayed overnight, arriving on a freezing cold December evening. Our welcome was warm and the receptionist super helpful. We received a coupon for breakfast in the morning, which was lovely. The room was large and the bed comfortable. Clean, kitchen area, super location - I cannot fault the hotel. Would love to visit again in the future.

We stayed here and had a bit of a mixed experience. The beds were AMAZING!!! Seriously, possibly the best hotel beds I've slept in... The 2 bedroom apartment was really cool and a great value. The staff were very nice and professional. My only complaint was that there was a bar with loud smoking patrons under our window. BUT the...

We stayed at the hotel on our final night in Iceland and had a three bedroom apartment. The apartment was well laid out with three double rooms, a nice kitchen, lounge area as well as bathroom that also had a washer and drier. Super comfy beds. The staff are helpful at recommending local restaurants and other sights in the city....

We've read some negative reviews from a few years ago - we didn't experience anything negative at all! We stayed 5 nights in the Reykjavik Residence Hotel. It was lovely. Very comfortable beds, the usual double being two singles but nothing new there for Europe/International Hotels. Such a good sleep! Coffee machine in room refilled each day, tidy clean room...

I couldn't begin to describe our stay at this beautiful homey hotel. The hotel has everything any one would wish for. To start with the cleanliness the room was very spacious giving our little daughter room to move around. Second thing is their generosity, we were served breakfast in our room as we stayed during Christmas time, the breakfast could...

This apartment hotel is wonderful. Perfect location, staff is friendly and knowledgeable, clean, comfortable, I wouldn't stay anywhere else! Old town Reykjavik is very compact, walkable, and from this location you can reach anything in 15 mins walking

If they'd put a Christmas tree in here it would have been perfect! Good sized rooms, warm, super-helpful staff, milk in the fridge, everything you could ask for. We had a great time here and would definitely come back.

We just got home after spending a week here. First off our room i found small compared with our previous stay elsewhere but its acceptable, however the standard of cleanness is questionable I dont think our room was ever dusted or cleaned during our stay nor before. The dust was thickly layered on bedside tables etc I had to ask...

When we checked-in to the hotel around 7pm for our one-night stay, the concierge said that all studio apartments were booked. But, she had a lovely surprise for us because our room was upgraded to a two-bedroom suite! We could not hide our glee from this unexpected and pleasant surprise. The two-bedroom suite included a washer and dryer with a...
