Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great accomodations and the staff was really friendly and helpful. I was very happy with my stay. We had breakfast included and it was something me and my partner really looked forward to each morning. Also, they were amazing with communicating with me before and during our stay. Five stars all the way!

Hotel's Favourite
Had a great stay here. We had the studio apt and it was the perfect size for 2 people. Very clean. Staff very helpful and friendly. I thought bed was super comfy. My sister with a bad back had to sleep on pullout couch instead of the bed because it was firmer. Had 2 minor aggravations, but other than those had a great stay. The hotel advertises if you are gluten free they will accommodate that food allergy. I confirmed before arrival we would be getting gluten free bread. Out of a 5 day stay it only actually happened once after major persistence on our part. No idea why if they offer it they could not follow through. If you are GF there is a great GF bread at Korean grocery store. Other issue was the induction stove. 2 of us could not figure it out. Turns out you have to have pan on the burner before it will heat up. Who knew? Instructions would have helped. One of the best amenities is the reception area. Great place to stop by to warm up and hang out on the couches while waiting for room to be ready. Staff very knowledgeable and helpful in reception. The reception area has two large bathrooms and even a shower. It was awesome we could stow our bags and retrieve them once room was ready. Loved plenty of coffee available in our room. Definitely would stay here again.

Wonderful! So much better than the place we stayed in last time (which basically had no heat). We stayed in a studio with a kitchenette, which we used a lot to save money on restaurants. (We spent our money on activities.) The kitchenette had everything we needed-pots, plates, bowls, cutlery, mugs, coffee machine, microwave, fridge. The shower was fantastic, with a waterfall-type head, excellent hot water, and really great shampoo, conditioner, and body wash (L’Occtaine). I didn’t even use the shampoo, etc that I brought because it was so lovely. The staff was helpful and kind, place was immaculate, with comfortable bedding and pillows.

Could not have asked for a better place to stay. It was perfect! Great location, many nearby bus stops where tour bus operators can pick you up. Plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance. And the view of the harbor two blocks away is one I never grew tired of. Loved our daily delivery of food and fresh bread. My first visit to Iceland and if I return, no, WHEN I return, I'll be staying here again.

Very good choice. For about the same price as a good hotel you get so much more. Because our flights were obtained using air miles, my husband thought it would be a good idea to treat ourselves to a royal suite. I am so glad we did! The Prime Minister’s Residence is very close to the centre of town, one of the tour bus stops, and lots of restaurants etc.. The suite is very spacious and well equipped, with everything you might need to do a little cooking, which we did one evening after arriving home late from a long tour, when I was too tired to go out. There is a nice settee, breakfast bar and stools, large bathroom with bath and shower, and large comfortable bed. The people at Reception were friendly and helpful. The breakfasts (additional cost) were well worth having, with so much food that we made lunch as well on some days. Just a few suggestions which would make these suites even better: - black-out curtains, as the artificial light outside the bedroom was as bright as day (and it will be brighter in July) - instructions for how to use the hob (not obvious to me) - a little more drawer space Definitely recommended - a box of tissues - a box of tissues would be nice

We had a 2 bed apartment, great sized rooms, comfy beds, clean and fresh throughout. Daily cleaning service in fact it was all the privacy and facilities of an apartment with all the comforts of a hotel. We had breakfast included which was a selection of cold meats, cheeses, yoghurts, fruit, and spreads left in the fridge in the afternoon and then a fresh loaf left on your door handle early in the morning, we all found plenty to enjoy and never finished it as there was so much. It also had a washing machine and dryer so we came home with no holiday washing, absolutely brilliant!

We are staying at Bergshus Veghusastigur 9. Overall the house is well maintained and nice to stay in especially the location is excellent. Housekeeping not daily but you can contact the reception on this as what we did. Should do some cleanup and maintenance on the washing machine and dryer. Shower curtain should be changed. Put an air refresher in the bathroom as there is a smell in the bathroom. We are not used to throwing the used towels on the floor as indicate in the instruction card. A laundry basket for used towels will be good. The rest are all good.

Great option for staying in central Reykjavik. The family studio in the old printing press building was ideal for the 4 of us (2adults 2 teen/ tween.) The room was large, comfortable and well appointed,- lovely l’Occitane stuff in the bathroom. The breakfast was great, with loads of food, and the top up of coffee/hot chocolate, juice and milk each day was very much appreciated. Hotel reception were really helpful too.

This is why we all use Tripadvisor- a lot of time saved finding a great place to stay. This hotel lives up to expectations. The location is important and you can walk to everything from here. Clean, comfortable, over generous with breakfast basket and heating.

We are a family of 3. We booked 2 types of studio apartments for 5 nights. Both rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious. The rooms are modern and with a well equipped kitchenette. Coffee capsules and juice are replenished daily which we enjoyed very much. Location is perfect. Walking distance to downtown and nearby attractions and restaurants. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. He gave us useful information about the weather for whale watching and luckily we did watch the whales!!! We had made a right choice to stay at this place. Highly recommended!!
