Travelled by Icelandair which was definitely better than other budget airlines I've tried. The hotel is well located for the old town, the bus station and good restaurants and all the staff were very helpful and friendly. The apartments are fitted with a cooker, toaster, kettle (with teas coffee etc), fridge, television etc and everyday, placed in the fridge, is... More

We liked this hotel very much. The only things keeping it from being 5-star is the taking of the food originally in my breakfast basket, the shower, and the missing piece on the coffeemaker. We ordered 2 breakfasts and there was plenty of food. I was hoping to use the leftovers as snacks as we traveled along the south coast... More

We stayed in seven places in Iceland, and this was our favorite. It's an elegant building but upgraded with modern facilities. We were upgraded from a single room to a suite, and our space was fantastic. We really enjoyed our stay at this well-appointed hotel and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for accommodations in Reykjavik!

The staff was super friendly and helpful. They had no problem with us checking in early. It was a great location that allowed us to easily walk to restaurants and shopping. However, on the web it showed bright and airy rooms. Ours was on the ground floor, and it was dark and cramped. The coffee maker didn't work and the... More

This is a lovely hotel run by friendly people in a great location. What more do you need? Our check in was smooth, the room is spacious with a cute little kitchen and nice bathroom and the bed was very comfortable. Easy walk to see the sights. We loved it and highly recommend it!

I wrote a review of the suites but wanted to write a hotel review as well since I spent time there. Bottom line, this is an outstanding property (the hotel as well as the suites). It is small and you get basically one-on-one attention for booking tours, etc. I was given restaurant and shopping recommendations. And unlike other places, when... More

Very nice place in the heart of Reykjavik. The staff at the hotel was very nice and gave good service. Apartment was big and clean. We stayed 6 grownups and three kids. Parking at the street. Recommend the breakfeast basket.

We give top recommendation to the Reykjavik Residence Hotel! We spent the first four days of our three-week trip in Iceland, then it was on to England. This hotel was just the boost we needed for an outstanding holiday. The third floor suite was fresh and clean with comfortable furnishings and a well-stocked kitchenette. What a surprise when we discovered... More

We spent a week at the hotel and could not have been more pleased. What makes this hotel special is the staff - we met at least 6 different hotel employees at the front desk during our stay, and each was professional, helpful, courteous, and informative - someone really knows how to hire quality people. We loved everything about the... More

Our online booking was for Reykjavik Residence Suites at Hverfisgata 21, but when we saw the dark ground floor back room we were going to get, we asked the front desk if they had anything lighter and airier. What they came up with was SUPERB-and just down the street at Hverfisgata 45 in the same centrally-located 101 District, a second... More
