To be honest we want for a budget studio as it was cheap. When we arrived we found a really nice room, yes it may have been a little rough round the edges but these didn't spoil the stay. Basic kitchen facilities, which allowed us to take packed lunches on the tours. Room was noisy on a weekend as it...

Apprecaited the central location of this hotel. Rooms were spacious and very modern. All the ammenities that you could think of were provided and was great, after having traveled for a week, to have the ability to actually cook our own meals. Bed was comfortable. Shower was modern. Within walking distance to most major sites in town. Jessica (I think)...

I cannot recommend the hotel enough, particularly the staff, *****Jennifer***** and Birna. I made my booking through Booking.com and totally screwed it up (do not believe them when they say they book without charging, it all depends on the hotels cancellation policy). I completely screwed the booking up but the staff at the hotel were beyond amazing. We had a...

I travel all over the world for work and this is the best place I stay in. Its an apart-hotel with a great kitchen in every apartment. Location is perfect and the staff are always very pleasant and very helpful. The rooms are fantastic and the decor very cool. Rooms on the top floor are to die for. If you...

We stayed here for two nights, we were in the main apartments but at another set of apartments about 100m down the road. Our apartment was spacious, clean and had everything you could need. We stayed here for the price and the location. You could walk everywhere you needed to in the city from here with a lot of sights...

My family of 6 stayed in apartment L157 (3 BR, 2 baths), across the street from the main hotel which had lovely views of the mountains and ocean from the bedrooms. The hotel is ideally located in the center of downtown Reykjavik, near everything, including the bus station if you want to get out of town. The apartment was as...

My husband chose this accomodation for a surprise 50th Birthday treat for me but it was not the luxury treat we had anticipated. The apartment on the 4th floor did not have any view and was shabby and not very clean [dusty on all surfaces, threadbare bed cover, broken plug, broken blinds and curtains]. we like to cook but the...

We were moved to this accommodation as our booked hotel had had a fire the week before. Not exactly what we had planned, but certainly excellent in terms of location and had everything we might want for self-catering - essential with Reykjavik prices. I think it was slightly less salubrious than what we had booked, but it served us well....

Stayed in a standard apartment room across the road from the main building. The room was very nice with small kitchenette, bathroom and double bed. Furnished nicely with tv, dining table and audio player which can be connected to your iPod. The views from the room were absolutely amazing, would highly recommend!! Also staff and the reception were very friendly...
