Centrally located, stylishly decorated with comfort, and considerate staff who are able to advise you where to go, the best way to see things and enable you to make the perfect trip according to your own requirements. You have the luxury of choice of not having to go out every night being self catering, or to go out in the... More

Excellent apartment hotel right in the centre of the main party and shopping street in Reykjavik. Just make sure you ask for rooms with 11-13 in the ending, these are on the quieter side of the hotel, otherwise you are likely to be kept awake till breakfast, they party long and hard in the capital. Saying that, you never feel... More

A perfect base from which to explore the charming streets of Reykjavik and tour buses are happy to pick you up at your doorstep. Hosts are helpful; noise can filter through from the streets but only in a few rooms and if you can't beat 'em join 'em!

Just want to add to the good things said about these apartments. We were in Room 501 with amazing views and really spacious rooms. It is central and, unlike those slightly out of town brand name hotels beside ring roads, it is in the lively part of town - especially on weekends when even at 430am it's like Waterloo Station...

This is one of the best places I've stayed. The hosts were friendly and helpful, the room was great, much better than we expected. Location is in a very good and central part of the city.

My husband and I travelled to Reykjavik in mid-January to celebrate his birthday. Based on the reviews on TripAdvisor and apartment descriptions on Room with a View's own website, we booked an apartment on the top floor. And was it ever worth it!! We had a beautiful apartment with a wraparound terrace and outdoor jacuzzi tub. Although we didn't use... More

Stayed in the appartments last weekend with group of girls for a weekend away. The appartment was perfect for us, large dining and seating area, big bathroom with a good shower (and jacuzzi bath although we didn't get round to using it!). All very modern and clean. The kitchen was well equipped with an unusually large supply of teabags, they... More

Location is brilliant, definitely noisy - those Icelanders know how to party.. but then so did we so it didn't bother us! The Jacuzzi was fantastic and we used it every day. We cooked in our apartment every day - no oven but there was cooktop and microwave and access to an oven on 2nd floor. Bring in your duty... More

This set of 36 apartments has great reviews, and they are all justified. I'm not going to repeat what has already been said, so I'll just try and amplify some additional points. The main apartment building is on the quaint and pretty main street of Reykjavik. It's a bit of a trick to find: a narrow doorway with a buzzer,... More

Room with a View (apartment hotel) was one of the best places we've every stayed. We got a 5th floor room with view of the harbor from the bedroom and city view from the living room. There was a patio (which we didn't use since it was winter). The Hotel had a party for guests for New Year's Eve, which... More
