We stopped in Reykjavik for a couple of nights on our way home from a two week trip to London and Denmark. Had never been to Iceland before. This hotel was terrific. Clean, comfortable, well-appointed rooms, with good beds. The in-room breakfast supplied was well above-average (couldn't eat it all). The kitchenette was convenient. Overall, a good value in an...

I stayed in this hotel with a group and had a great experience. We were in four different apartments, all of which were different from each other, all of which were nice. We had no problems with booking, payment, or anything else. The staff were super helpful--we had a couple of minor problems (I was unclear in the bedding configuration... More

Just returned from a 5 night stay in Iceland. I selected the Reykjavik Residence Hotel based on the great reviews on Trip Advisor. The hotel is in a central location in Reykjavik making it easy to get to restaurants, shops, sites and the harbor. My tastefully-decorated room was immaculately clean. I was concerned about light keeping me up at night... More

Our large apartment at the hotel was modern, spacious and comfortable. The hotel is near all of the major sights in Reykjavik, and we walked everywhere. A pleasant staff gave helpful advice. Too bad there were no black-out shades in the bedroom, so we used eye shades for sleeping in the never-ending summer days.

This property is one of four and it seemed to be the smallest of the properties but our room was still very spacious with a kitchenette, good bathroom and everything was clean and comfortable. The reception staff was really helpful and friendly. Our booking included a breakfast basket which was delivered every day of our stay and included enough food... More

Coming off a 5 day/4 night hut-to-hut trek, it was paradise to walk into our room and find a washer / dryer, kitchennette, wonderful shower, sitting room, and nice bedding. The location is ideal. Right off the main shopping street, yet quiet and safe. I was with my teenage niece and nephew and all 3 of us loved it.

My daughter and I stayed four nights in the beginning of June at this charming hotel perfectly located close to the main shopping street. The room was large, clean and quiet and the beds soft and comfy. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to assist us. We would absolutely stay at this hotel again. /Christel... More

We had a whirlwind stopover in Reykjavik. Returning to the US from Belgium and we did not want to pass up the opportunity to spend a night in Iceland. We selected the Reykjavik Residence Hotel firstly because of location and the reviews were good. While in the reservation process we noted that we could, for an additional fee, have the... More

This is an excellent location if you want to go out in Reykjavik for the evening. We had an apartment in the newly-refurbished building behind the reception. Decor was very stylish, beds great, and all to a high standard. Staff were also helpful and friendly.
