“Perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Spent two nights here leading up to Christmas. Hotel right in the middle of all the Christmas festivities and shopping. The apartment was just great for us as a family of four. Would very happily stay there again when we go back for a city break.

The Reykjavik Residence Hotel was an OUTSTANDING accommodation while in Iceland. We were traveling as a group of five and needed an accommodation that would comfortably fit us all. Hotels were too expensive and too small with just two beds and a cot. This is when I stumbled upon the Reykjavik Residence Hotel. It seemed too good to be true....ample space, amazing location, breakfast each morning and the price seemed right.

I booked it for 5 nights in October to include daily breakfast for five. I received a confirmation right away and it included a lovely welcome letter with more details. They offered a shuttle service to and from the airport to the hotel (about an hour away), which we added since it was such a great deal.

Our room was amazing! Very modern, two bedrooms with 4 beds and an additional bed in the living space, full kitchen with dishes and dishwasher, flat screen TV (which we never turned on). Beautiful! There was a cleaning service each day as well. It sat just one block from the main street of shopping and restaurants and we could walk everywhere!

The folks at the front desk were so helpful and accommodating too. They provided us with umbrellas on the first day when it was raining, recommended sights and tour companies, and even accommodated us to have our driver stop at the Blue Lagoon on the way back to the airport and wait for us for 2 hours (only for a small fee more)!

If you are visiting Iceland, please consider the Reykjavik Residence Hotel. You will not be disappointed!

Including my girlfriend and myself, we had 11 people traveling together. Staff was very accommodating of our needs and the rooms were very nice and spacious. We liked the separate kitchenette area and the refrigerator and used the welcome basket (extra cost option) for breakfast the two mornings we stayed.
Although our room (303) faced the street there was little traffic at night and we slept well. The hotel is located just a short walk from the main tourist area of the city.
I will note the spiral staircases which require careful navigation, especially while carrying heavy suitcases.
We would certainly stay here again

The apartment is located just far enough away from the relatively noisy city center area to be peaceful, but close enough to be in the center of everything with in a minute, I was a bit disappointed that the room we had we was almost at basement level, that said in December there isnt much sunlight. I did find that I had to turn on every light in the room to get it to a decent light level. The room facitilies were everything that is required in a studio apartment. There is a small supermarket 5 minutes walk up the road, which is the most cost effective way of eating in Iceland. We stayed for 4 nights which was ideal, one day walking around Reykjavik and two days driving round in a hire car (booked through Sixt at the airport turns out way cheaper than booking the excursions).Driving there is fairly traffic and stress free. The hotel staff were always available and friendly, the room was cleaned daily with tea, milk and cornflakes renewed.

This hotel is in a perfect location. It is stylish but incredibly reasonable in price. The front desk staff was very attentive and helpful. I would highly recommend this as the place you should stay while visiting Reykjavik. We were traveling as 3 and this hotel worked perfectly for us.

We had a fantastic night in Reykjavik. Try and be there for the weekend pub crawl if you can but bring you thermals if you're there in Winter. The hotel is in a great central location and the rooms are lovely and very tastefully decorated. The kitchen area is small but has everything you need. There is limited parking behind the hotel.
