Very nice hotel. We got the standard studio and it was fine, but our view wasn't a "view." It was next to the bar next door and was very loud when we had the window open, but as soon as we closed the window, it was fine. The room and bathroom were very clean and the bed was comfortable.

The location of Room with a View, on Laugavegur — the main shopping street — is fantastic. Almost everything is within a short walk. My regular studio apartment was great too: spacious and clean with a comfortable bed and well-appointed kitchenette (very useful for making cheap(er) breakfasts and lunches). However, my room — 306 was immediately opposite an extremely noisy bar/club... More

I agree with the other reviewers the street /party noise can travel into your apartment. Which did not bother us since we love the hustle and bustle of the street noise when we travel. The biggest issue we had was the weird Sulfur smell bathroom had. Otherwise, the beds were really comfortable, the kitchen was stocked with all pots, pan,... More

This place is on the main drag in Reykjavik. A bit noisy at night b/c of the bars, but we were so tired from our excursions that it didn't bother us much. We had an apartment on the top floor. Spacious living area and kitchen, two bedrooms. Lots of room to organize the cold weather gear. We stayed for 3... More

The apartment was outstanding and fully equipped throughout. The staff were ever so keen to help from the moment we got there. The entrance is a little difficult to spot, just to the left of the book store (which is amazing). There are two or three buildings of apartments, both seem to be a good standard.

All of the photos for this hotel on the website, as far as I can tell, are for the main location which is at the address listed. However, they also offer rooms across the street in a (non-renovated) apartment building that has no elevator. The studio apartment we were given was a cozy studio apartment with mini fridge, induction cooktop... More

The location and the apartment living are awesome. Right in the middle of downtown Reykjavik and lots of living space. However, the service from the front desk was absolutely awful. We arrived to be told the previous guests had taken the keys so we had no keys all day and then the previous guests showed up in our room, despite... More

This hotel is conveniently located downtown and within walking distance to most everything. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance as well. The staff are very pleasant and will offer tips on where to travel within the city.

Clean tidy and modern. Great place esp if you are self catering. Everything is a stone throw away only thing is there is no parking as its the city centre but there's easy on street parking just you have to pay for it! Lovely place all you want for a few nights
