An excellent option

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 6 May 2024
Reykjavik Residence Hotel is an amazing alternative to your standard hotel room. It's roomier and has a kitchen, which is perfect for an extended stay. While it's also not like your typical hotel in the sense that there is no front desk, I had one minor housekeeping issue and a couple things I needed assistance with, and the staff were incredibly responsive, friendly, and helpful.

Our recent stay at the Reykjavík Residence was terrific. We opted for the 2 bedroom apartment and were pleased at the size of the apartment and the comfort. It appeared to be new or newly renovated and nicely decorated. There is a well stocked but reasonable grocery store nearby so we cooked meals in our kitchen. Our apartment was near all of the attractions of the city and our day tour of the Golden Circle and Sky Lagoon pick up point was just down the street which was so convenient. Staff was friendly and efficient.I highly recommend this hotel.

Really great place to stay. Wonderful room: clean, very comfortable bed, well equipped kitchenette, good shower and warm room, free tea and coffee. The building we were in was very convenient for town but peaceful. We opted for breakfast which was a good move - great spread and fresh bread delivered to your room every morning. Enough each day to take something with us for lunch. Could not have asked for much more.

Room tip: Your phone is your room key - keep it charged!

My partner and I stayed in a superior studio in the Embassy Building for a week in April. Given all the positive reviews we had pretty high expectations -- these were all met and more so. It was ideal for us. Clean Nordic vibe -- plenty of room for 2 people -- extremely comfortable beds -- the kitchenette, while simple and somewhat basic, had everything needed to cook proper meals (and we did). We opted out of the breakfast basket as we actually enjoy food shopping in other countries and the helpful staff in reception gave us tips on where to go (especially for that delicious bread) -- everything within easy walking distance, although a short bus ride away is a good mall with a large, higher-end supermarket we investigated as well. We arrived early and they found a room ready for us, which was much appreciated. Staff there always very helpful and friendly. Extra pluses: endless supply of tea, coffee, sugar, milk and juice provided. And for every day you opt out of the housekeeping service, you get a free drink coupon which can be used either in hotel reception or a delightful wine bar round the corner! We loved it and will certainly stay here again next time we visit Reykjavik.

I'm so happy I picked this hotel for our 5 night stay. The beds were comfortable and the room was relatively quiet which was a surprise since it is so close to the road. The kitchenette was stocked full of everything we needed and we saved money by cooking a few meals in the room. It was nice to have a microwave to heat up leftovers too. We purchased the breakfast option and it was SO much food! We couldn't possibly have eaten all of it but did our best. The bread delivery each morning was a special treat too. The location was convenient to walk to bus stops, shopping, and the harbor. We were able to store our luggage in the main building upon arrival and sit in the lobby to add layers of clothing and decide how to spend our jet-lagged day in the city while waiting for our room. The receptionist gave us great tips on where to go and was very welcoming. Our room felt very safe for us as a mom and teenage daughter traveling together. The building and room smell bad because of the hot water and the air freshener fragrance sticks in the room were too strong for me so housekeeping kindly took that away. We got used to the smell but I'd recommend bringing a perfume or your own essential oil if you're sensitive to smells.

Room tip: If your tap water tastes bad turn the faucet all the way to cold and let it run then it will be delicious. Check dishes for cleanliness.
