We arrived at around 2am, worn out and wary of the self checkin process. We were concerned mainly because had we not emailed the hotel directly before our trip, we would not have received the door code. But when we arrived, the code worked and we found our simple apartment was clean and adequate. I think this is a good... More

Am staying here currently. It's been 1 week. I pre-paid & booked this about 2 months out through Booking.com since everything in Reykjavik (that was low-budget) was filling up quickly. This is not smack dab in the city centre, but seriously a 2 block walk from one of the main tourist/shopping streets & a pleasant, scenic 5 block walk to... More

This is a basic apartment hotel. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. We were allowed to check in early (noon). Our flight arrived at 7am, so we needed to utilize the bag storage at the hotel while we waited for our room to be available. There is no front desk attendant, so if you are looking for a full service... More

We stayed at the Welcome Apartments in Reykjavik on a 5-day holiday. We flew in from London very late at night and hopped a taxi over to the hotel. Be forewarned: Keflavik airport is about 45 minutes away from downtown Reykjavik and a taxi will cost you about 15000 krona (roughly 80 pounds), which surprised and astonished us. Luckily we... More

Based on reviews and photos, my partner and I were expecting much more than we got at the Welcome Apartments. It's definitely a good value, decently priced, and I would recommend it if you want to save money while visiting the very expensive Reykjavik area. The location is very good. Easy walking distance to shopping and bus stops. We found... More

Went to Iceland on business in January when prices in general are low. However, I was still surprised at the very low price for a one bedroom apartment and it turned out to be great value for money. The apartment was spacious, IKEA styled decorated and clean. Nothing fancy, but practical and located just off the main shopping street in... More

Welcome apartments is located in a perfect location, in the center of Reykjavik. It is close to restaurants, clubs (however in a quiet street), bars, supermarket, easy walking distance of everything. The apartment was very clean, warm, spacious, with nice mattress, drawers and rack to put clothes and a small kitchen to do breakfast or cook if you would like.... More

Perfect location in the center of Reykjavik, but the necessary one street off Laugavegur. Self check-in etc. worked well, but the owner was also very friendly and helpful. Large and bright apartment for a good price.

Welcome Apartments is located right by the water and within walking distance to everything! If you head in one direction you are on the water and the other you will hit the main shopping area. If you follow that road you will be in the city center. Lots of great coffee shops, stores and all of the attractions will happily... More

It was just what you need when you stay Reykavick on a budjet. Right in the middle of town so going to a supermarket and eateries was very easy. The place itself plain and practical, and obviously has been renovated not too long ago. I stay away allot normally in 4* hotels each week and found this place great value... More
