“Spectacular Stay Made Even Better By Carla and the Black Pearl”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

My wife and I spent 6 nights in Reykjavik in September and every aspect of our stay at the Black Pearl was literally perfect. Carla made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. The property reflects her very obvious attention to every single detail - fully stocked Nespresso machine in your room!? - and left absolutely nothing to desire. Supreme luxury, convenience and even in-room technology - touch screen functions for almost everything!? Wow!! It was simply put, 1 of the nicest stays we have stayed anywhere in the world. Thanks for an incredible vacation - and know that we will not be staying anywhere else upon our return to your beautiful city and country!!!

Dear Craig and Melissa,

I'm having some difficulties to thank everyone for such nice reviews.
In your case, we were already speechless after reading the message you left behind. It was very kind of you, and we really appreciate it.
Hope to see you back soon.
Warm Regards ;)

I can't say enough nice things about the Black Pearl. By far the nicest place we stayed during our 2 week plus stay in Iceland. Like another poster we ended here by accident as the Hotel Holt had a "computer glitch" that ended up leaving us without a room on our last night. They put us up at the Black Pearl (at their expense!!) and boy are we glad they did! We only wish we had more time to spend there and certainly will return if we travel back to Iceland.

Extremely modern Scandinavian style hotel apartment. Impeccably clean and stylish with modern decor and features. Move in ready! The owners could not be nicer and more friendly. We received an in-depth tour and orientation for the apartment and building. Our luggage was even brought up for us (the only time in Iceland, not that I am complaining). We were not even paying customers (although the Holt did pay), but were treated like we were frequent guests.

If you like a spacious modern apartment centrally located I would unequivocally give the Black Pearl my highest recommendation. The owners have done a fantastic job with the place and deserve your patronage!

The Black Pearl turned our first visit to Reykjavik unforgettable. It is simply the best apartment-hotel that we ever stayed in. Located in the heart of Iceland's capital city, the Black Pearl has the right mixture of luxury and cosiness. Its' accommodations are beautifully designed and every detail of the apartments ("state of the art" furniture, decoration, technology, etc.) is well conceived. These apartments are ideal if you're travelling with your family, for numerous reasons. We point out a few of them. First of all, the rooms are spacious and very comfortable, and the kitchen is fully equipped. Secondly, the staff is super professional, caring and eager to make you and your family feel at home. The management can provide you a first class service, and also give you top suggestions about Reykjavik's best restaurants and sights, and also Iceland's points of interest. You can plan your entire trip to Iceland from the Black Pearl's lounge room. The Black Pearl also as a garage, which is very convenient if you're planning to rent a car. We were very lucky to stay at the Black Pearl, and we certainly want to come back there pretty soon!

My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon in Iceland - I couldn't wait to do a review for the Black Pearl. Out of 5 hotels we stayed at on our trip - this was the only one to go out of their way to acknowledge that it was our honeymoon...and boy did they make us feel special!!

First of all, the apartments are in an amazing location - you can walk all around town and leave your car in the inside garage. It is all sparkling clean and the owners/managers are the most sincerely helpful and happy people we've ever met. They have really gone the extra mile to make everything perfect for their guests. We were blown away by rose petals, champagne and chocolates when we arrived, along with a very nice welcome note. I can't say enough good about Black Pearl - it is the best of the best and well worth the money. It might seem expensive, but really everything is expensive in Iceland and the extra money you'll spend on this place pays off in service, comfort, amenities, privacy, and luxury.

Room Tip: We stayed in the biggest suite and also got to see the smaller rooms. They're all amazing, very...

We were fortunate enough to stay at the Black Pearl this summer. With a family of five, an apartment-type stay made much more sense than booking two hotel rooms. The decor and furnishings are top notch, but what really made the stay special was the attentitiveness of the owners, who went out of their way to make us feel at home. Their restaurant recommendations were all right on target, and the location was within walking distance of many attractions. We highly recommend the Black Pearl as an alternative to a hotel stay. Rather than an apartment, it really felt more like a luxury suite in a 5-star hotel.

Working in the transportation business, I travel a lot and consequently get exposed to a lot of accomodations and arrangements,.. so I have seen the excellent, the good and yes, occasionally the ugly, but this was a stunning experience, for it is very rare to find such a fine combination of location, style, technology and care for details. If you find yourself admiring the level of comfort provided in this facility, then you know the attention behind every possible guest necessity and pleasure was well worth the effort, since it is truly taken to a superior level. The apartments are really a "home away from home" and in short, you are left with nothing to desire, except, possibly, the urge to congratulate and greet the owners for their tasteful enterprise and dedicated professionalism to satisfy your every need. Try it once and I'll buy you a dinner if you don't agree.

We stayed in Iceland late summer and had the chance to discover the Black Pearl. This really made our visit special. The hotel is exceptional (great design, material, furniture plus a full kitchen should you need it), the location is very central, and the owners / managers really went out of their way to make our stay more enjoyable. Overall I think it would be difficult to find a better place in Reykjavik, or anywhere else. We will definitively be back very soon and can only recommend it to other visitors.
