We stayed here for three nights. It's an unassuming but beautiful little building. The staff is incredibly helpful and pleasant. The room we had was charming. It is like a little apartment, with a small kitchen area with a refrigerator, stove, and toaster, coffee-maker (or tea) and sink (and dishes and tableware). The beds were comfortable, with a nice Icelandic...

Now a listed building, built in 1912, converted into hotel apartment suites. We had number 810 on top floor. Large lounge/dining with well disguised fully equipped kitchen area. and a cosy bedroom, a big semi-enclosed window seat could be used for sleeping. Bathroom has modern fittings and a huge tub and separate shower. A breakfast tray is available, bread, jam,...

Good location in walking distance of restaurants and attractions. Arne at the reception desk was super nice and helpful. I'd definitely recommend this hotel. (I don't haveore than that to say. This is filler.)

I recommend this hotel highly. Our family stayed in the three bedroom apartment. The apartment was well equipped, included essentials (coffee, milk, juice). The staff were helpful and the hotel is well located in Reykjavik.

This was our first stop in Reykjavik and our apartment catered for everything we needed. We could check in at 3am, we had a nice little kitchen with a coffee machine with complimentery pads as well as a water heater, toaster and a microwave. The bed was comfortable, the bath very nice with occitane amenities. Superb location and very friendly...

My quiet first floor room faced the Rear. This was a spacious apartment type hotel. Small kitchen , pots, pans refrig. The refrig was even stocked with courtesy milk and OJ. The bed was very comfortable - like a feather bed with Icelandic wool spread. Room nice and warm from the geothermal radiators. Walk in shower- be careful this could...

Three of us stayed three nights in a one bedroom suite. Very clean. friendly and extremely efficient staff who helped with reservations for tours and van shuttle, The breakfast basket and fresh bread delivered every morning were delicious. The hotel is well located near the harbor, shopping and restaurants.

Booked 3 nights in the studio apartment with my husband during our first trip to Iceland. Unsure of the accuracy of some of the stellar reviews as our experience fell quite short considering what is charged per night. First, be aware that the studio apartment is actually a 'basement' apartment and was far too dark for our taste and ceiling...

We stayed at Reykjavik Residence Hotel based on reviews and their description on their website. The rooms were spacious. Each staff member we interfaced with was very professional, knowledgeable and courteous. This location should not be confused with their other property, Reykjavik Residence Suites two blocks down the same road. We found that bus and taxi drivers know which one...
