We stayed in apartment 70. It is huge, beautifully furnished and well equipped. It was spotlessly clean and lovely and warm and very comfortable. We were only in Reykjavik for a weekend and were so pleased we were so centrally situated. It was a walk of only a few minutes to get to a very helpful excursion company who give us advice on how to make the most of our 2 days. We did 2 excursions with them and they picked us up at the apartment and dropped us off there at the end of the day. (Maybe the owners should go and let the company know of the existence of the apartments as the guide and the driver hadn't heard of them. That didn't stop the company though and we were picked up and delivered to our door safely when we gave them the address). Most of the others on the bus were dropped off at hotels and we realised how lucky we were as so many of the hotels were on the outskirts of the town whilst we were so central and within walking distance of the main shops and sights in Reykjavic. We ate out each evening since our stay was so short and there were lots of restaurants within minutes of the apartment. The food in each one was wonderful and we thought the prices were comparable with home - a bit more expensive but not horrendously so. Also, tipping is not part of their culture at all so you just pay for what you get so that should be borne in mind when comparing with home. Tipping here can mount the costs up significantly but it is just not done in Iceland at all. We loved everything about our stay - the accommodation, the trips, the kindness and friendliness of the people, the food and the level of service we encountered. We would happily return, maybe in a different season, and we would definitely stay at the Embassy Apartments again. We couldn't fault it.
