We arrived before check-in time and so only 1 of our 4 rooms were ready which was fine since we had a place to put our luggage for 7 people. We were centrally located on the main street which made it easy to get around Reykjavik. When I saw the room I was quite surprized considering we were paying $350...

We stayed here on your first in in Iceland. It was nice but and quirky. The bed very comfy, the only thing was no loo papers or washing stuff. We had a big light of bird though!!! It was two minutes from the main shopping bit so was a good one night stay

I visited Iceland for the first time in April, 2014. We booked a Deluxe apartment with King bed and sofa bed for 7 nights. Our apartment was in the back (older) building on Thingholtsstraeti. Which is directly behind and through the building where the office is. This building is nice and rooms are a nice size with lots of light...

Stayed in a ground floor studio from Apartment K for two nights in March 2014. Good points: location (off the main st), wifi / TV, ease of checking out, quirky style, heated floors. Not so good: bathroom/toilet had just a curtain for privacy, which in a studio is a bit too close for comfort. Overall: good value for Iceland and...

I read plenty of reviews on Apartment K before booking it, and it was everything we expected for our 4 night stay! It's in the heart of the city and perfect for those who wish to be independent and make their own adventures. We had a 2 bedroom deluxe right off of Laugavegur, and it was exactly what we needed...

My luggage including a Samsung tablet was stolen May 9-11th from the Apartment K luggage storage. The room was left unlocked and the hotel would not accept any responsibility. Management's treatment of me was appalling. Otherwise the room was warm, clean, with kitchen & washing machine. In a great central location although noisy on Friday & Saturday nights-next to night...

We at Apartment K take security of luggage and items very seriously, the luggage in question was a small ´generic´ plastic bag that was left for a period of days in our locked luggage room. The room is only unlocked for guests storing or collecting baggage. We always advise people who are leaving bags for long periods of time to...

You've been warned...this is not a hotel at all. Once you're booked in to your room, you are basically on your own. The cleaning service only comes if you stay longer than 7 days, but YOU can PAY to have someone clean your room before that (which would be standard in a real hotel). The room was clean, and that's...

Yes we agree this is not a hotel and we are proud of that. Apartment K is listed correctly as apartments in the heart of the City. Most of our guests who have chosen to stay in our apartments are looking for a more independent, regular living environment where they receive privacy by not having the bother of cleaners or...

We stayed in a clean and convenient two bedroom apartment in Reykjavik just off Laugavegur for a week in May. The apartment featured nice foam beds and had a good fully functional kitchen. Plenty of space for our family of four and great WiFi. The staff was very helpful in setting-up tours and answering general questions for us. We would...

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Overall, did not like the hotel. The location is excellent - Apartment K has multiple locations and we stayed at the one right next to the main street. The room was spacious but many things were not what I personally expect from a hotel. First of all there was no cleaning. A note...

Great thing about Tripadvisor is if you did your research, you should have a pretty good idea about what you're getting into before arriving. This is NOT a hotel, but more of a vacation rental situation. There's no concierge or maid/room service and they expect you to not leave a huge mess. However if you're a low maintenance traveler I...
