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 hotel pick us up at Keflavik Airport and drop us off the next morning. We knew there was a bus that could do this, but the fee was actually quite reasonable for the four us. Getting off the plane our ride was present and accounted for. The ride to the city was pleasant, our driver full of interesting information about Iceland and the city itself. When we arrived at the hotel, all was prepared. We were in a one bedroom “efficiency apartment” on the third floor of a beautiful older, historic building. Very neat and clean. Our rooms were set up for four and had several skylights to take in the midnight sun. A small kitchen had some nice appliances for our use. We opted for an additional charge breakfast basket that was delivered to our room because we were leaving early the next morning and thought we may want something before we had to go. It was varied and interesting, but frankly, I could have done without it. The beds were comfortable, and the bathroom was spacious and modern. The windows all had heavy curtains to make it dark for sleeping. The next morning the staff was helpful and efficient and our ride was right on time. I wish we had more time in the hotel and this town. I hope to return soon.
