This was my second stay at this location, and like the first, it lived up to expectation. The Apartments are just a few minutes walk from the center of town, on a quiet road in the embassy district. We had rented Apartment 70 - the largest unit in the building. It was well apportioned, clean, quiet and comfortable...It's also just... More

Great place to stay to walk around town. Easy to find and lovely well equipped apartment. Very warm and cosy. Can get to harbour easy for whale watching trips etc. Restaurants galore close by. Expensive to eat and drink out there though.

My husband and I stayed here during our trip to Iceland. It is a very easy walk to the main attractions in downtown...even during the winter! The apartments were very spacious, and the nightly rate was just right for us. There is not someone at reception 24 hrs, but they are just a phone call away and we did not... More

Wonderful little apartment hotel just steps from downtown, in a quiet residential neighborhood (which also included a few embassies). The apartment is not large, but that's mainly reflected in the kitchen and the bathroom - the one bedroom / living room combo was the largest room, and perfectly suitable for 2 people. The kitchen and bathroom (while small) were perfectly... More

Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. You stayed at our smallest and least expensive apartment, the other apartments all have a seperate sitting room and one is a 3 bedroom, 6 room apartment. All our apartments are fully equipped in every way, including the kitchens in case you decide to dine in.... More

Location is good, just few minutes walk to shops & restaurants, but also quiet. Our room 110 is really spacious & quips everything I need just like I was home! It's incredible! Although there is only one bed, but there is a living room with big sofa & dining room with 4 chairs, I can invite my friends for dinner... More

Not wanting to be cramped into a hotel, the apartment with 3 bedrooms suited our needs perfectly. The place was clean, spacious and well furnished. The location was minutes from the centre. The flyby bus dropped and collected from here, so no need for a car or taxi. I would fully recommend the place. The only improvement I would make,... More

We visit Iceland often and from now on will always try to stay at Embassy when we're in Reykjavik. The apartment was spacious, clean, quiet and immaculate. Everything is provided in the kitchen, including coffee, tea, sugar and milk, pretty impressive for a self-catering place. As soon as we booked we had lots of informational emails about transportation and tours... More

Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I am surprised to hear that the FlyBus driver did not give the full name of the apartments when announcing the stop. I have written to the company to ask that they be clearer in future. I suspect the reason is that driver was a new... More

Quiet residential street, close to the city center, easy walk about plus the tour buses stop right in front. The apartments have everything you need. They are clean and the kitchen is supplied with all the essential supplies. We had a group of six in three apartments (80, 90 and 100). Each couple was more than satisfied with the space.... More

We stayed here in room 93 for 4 nights in August and would stay here again if we ever are back. The place was clean, large and very affordable.

It was a dream come true to finally see Iceland and she did not disappoint! What a marvelous experience and I certainly hope to return. Regarding Embassy Apartments, we stayed on Garðastræti 40 in Apt 80 and it was adequate. It was clean, centrally located and quiet.

You are right, apartment 80 is perfect for 2 adults. It is also not possible to book it for more than 2. Everyone gets a welcome call on arrival to make sure all is as it should be and to answer any questions. We also answer the phone 24/7 for any questions or help. Phone calls inside Iceland are free... More
