I keep coming back to Reykjavik and this is now my place I stay in Reykjavik. I stayed in room 201 this year, where I also stayed two years ago (for the first time). It's an okay, room, but one of the power sockets didn't work and there was no adaptor or extension lead so the lighting was rubbish, which... More

We stayed for 3 nights in March in a one bedroom apartment. Simply decorated (Ikea style) and very clean. The apartments are brilliantly located - the main street is a block away one way and a bit more to the water front the other way. Many people were jogging along the wide seafront pavement. Supermarket 5 minutes walk along the... More

We stayed there for a week in February, and absolutely loved it! it was a short walk from the main street, with all the bars and restaurants, just great! We had a ground floor studio that was spacious and clean, and even had a little terrace. The only thing we didn't like was the wifi that was available in certain... More

The location was PERFECT! You are one block away from the main shopping street where there are many stores, coffee shops, restaurants, bars, clubs etc. People keep complaining about the internet, but we were on the first floor, so it worked perfectly for us. We were barely at the apartment, so luxury was not important for us. I would definitely... More

My wife and I were booked to stay for 3 nights in March but our flight was unable to land at Keflavik airport due to extremely bad weather and returned to Manchester. We were unfortunately forced to abandon our holiday. I emailed the apartments on my return home, explaining what had happened and they promptly agreed to refund all our... More

The location was good and it was very convenience to get to the high street and the harbour. If Internet is important to you, as I'm sure it is, AVOID this hotel. For the lies: free WiFi? We cannot maintain a connection for more than 2 minutes on our mobiles, and it's a weak connection at that. Our iPad could... More

Stayed in this apartment for a week, certainly great value for money as it is centrally located. Rooms are spacious and clean. Water had an eggy smell but not major issue. Despite all positive, there were no wifi connection anywhere above the ground floor after day 2. There are many guest sitting around the stairs on ground floor to use... More

We booked 3 nights here in March - hoping to see the Northern Lights. We had a rental car, so the 5 parking spots behind the building were a blessing. Although when we first got there, we did find on street parking at no cost. Coded entry and a key in the lock box. We arrived at 2:30 PM and... More

Stayed here end of Feb/beginning of March 2014, in a basic room. It had everything we needed. Location is perfect to explore Reykjavik and get to the tour operators offices. Beautiful view just out the door! The satellite tv was a bit temperamental for the English channels, and wifi was a little intermittent and a bit slow, but I really... More

We stayed on the top floor apartment and our first impression was we felt like we had stepped into an Ikea showroom- Open plan with modern furniture, and a small kitchen area with everything you could possibly need. Perfect. The old town is a short walk up the hill then turn right and the local supermarket was up the hill... More
