“It was the perfect place to end our trip, it sent us home with big smiles!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

We were very impressed with the room and location! It was right in the heart of all we wanted to do and see! The staff was very helpful and friendly. We were so comfortable that we slept through an earthquake while staying! I would not only stay again, but I would recommend to anyone who wants to visit and have a home base for their trip!

Is it wonderful to know that guests feels so comfortable at the Black Pearl.
Is it our intention to make our guests feel pampered after such a long journeys throughout the Icelandic wonders, so we are glad you felt like that.
Hope to see you back soon at the Black Pearl!!
Kind Regards

The Black Pearl is THE BEST place to stay in Reykjavik. This was my third time to Iceland and my mother's second, and the service here was exceptional. The gorgeous property is located in a very convenient location, and close to many attractions. The rooms were very well equipped, clean and modern. The staff were also wonderful. Carla went above and beyond to ensure we had a comfortable stay. She helped us with planning tours and always had great suggestions for restaurants and shopping. I am already looking forward to my next visit.

My boyfriend and I had the good fortune to stay at the Black Pearl in mid-October. The apartment was beautiful. All the amenities were top of the line. We loved the in suite Nespresso machine! The very best part of our stay by far was the service. Carla was extraordinary;friendly and helpful and ready with advise whenever we needed it. Thanks for a great stay! We'll be back.

Room Tip: Icelandic Fish and Chips and the SeaBaron just down the street are fantastic! GeoIceland is a great...

From the time that Marco picked us up at the FlyBus terminal, we knew we would be in good hands for 5 days. Carla, upgraded us to a deluxe suite and, upon entering the suite, we were thrilled at the accommodations, tastefully and elegantly furnished. Carla was there to help us plan our itinerary from tours to restaurant selections and the Laugar Health and Spa. This was our first time in Reykjavik and loved every minute of our visit. Both Marco and Carla know what customer service is all about, A plus!

I stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. Absolutely perfect! Couldnt imagine getting better service. Everything was excellent and the owner really took good care of us. Do try the in-suite breakfast: seriously delicious!!!!

I need to go back. Black Pearl is the best hotel in Reykjavik, not a doubt.

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!
