Lovated within the embassy area, it's very easy to go anywhere from there, even walking. We loved everything, the flat, the room, bathroom, the facilities, the staff. The one bedroom flat on the ground floor was very nice, clean and pleasant. The room was big enough. And the staff very kind and helpul, they would do anything to help you...

My 26-yr old daughter and I spent 3 nights at this lovely comfortable apartment. We had the top peak room which was perfect. Not only is the location terrific (a few blocks in any direction to many restaurants, sites, shopping, waterfront) but it is very quiet and comfortable - not to mention extremely clean and tidy. We didn't end up...

Ambassade Apartments provided an ideal location to explore all Reykjavik has to offer. It's on a quiet street close enough to the major shopping area (3 minute walk) and far enough away from the noise. Also close to the harbor and all the terrific restaurants (5-10 minute walk). The furnishings are utilitarian and functional and the apartment is clean. This...

We had one night on the floor and one night upstairs. Floor room is bigger but no need to walk the stairs. However you got an amazing view for the upstairs room. And...

A very comfortable Apartment with all facilities required. Very central to shops, restaurants and harbour. Free parking. We were well looked after and supplies re-stocked (coffee / kitchen towels etc). We were also very kindly upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment which gave much more space. Icelandic people are exceptionally helpful and friendly. We had a lovely holiday - thank...

First off this is an apartment not a Hotel. There are no amenities on site However the location is sensational and the apartment is very well done Modern and stylish A few small negatives; there is a very steep staircase and no elevator. There is also not a shower Besides that it was great just an Airbnb type of place

We did not know what to expect after entering the "reception" area, but once we had spoken to the very friendly manager and entered the Apartment, we were very pleased indeed. The apartment was nice and tidy, clean and spacious. No need to starve as long as you kept the fridge full. The apartments are situated very close to the...

I am a light sleeper so very careful to investigate accommodations before booking. I also informed the Olafur the owner of this before we arrived. Upon our arrival, Liz greeted us from the bus to help with our luggage and showed us to our room which was the bottom half of a decent size house. There were 2 bedrooms, 1...

Seamless check-in and great location. The apartment was fully equipped for a comfortable stay. Only criticism is that it was not as clean as I would have expected (shower curtain was dingy and the garbage from previous guest was not emptied, which makes me wonder about the cleanliness of the apartment that is not visible). Also, this was the only...

Great location, right off main high street. Where you can find shops and restaurants. Also close to main bus station from which you can book tours. Owners very attentive to our needs. Only criticism is the apartment was a bit cold of an evening. Would certainly book again despite this. Also managed to see northern lights from apartment window! Amazing!
