“Best value in Reykjavik”
Reviewed November 2, 2010

This was our second stay at the Embassy Apartments. Our apartment was spacious,clean, comfortable and very well equipt. It's location is perfect only a 10 minute walk to Whale watching, Northern Lights tours and any other tours you may want to do. Shops close by too.
When we visit Iceland again we will fit our flights around the Embassy Apartments suite vacancies just like we did this time. Really can't rate the apartments high enough.

I stayed in apt#90 and it was spacious, clean and comfortable. Excellent location and also on a residential street which reduces the amount of noise you hear on Saturday nights. Note that you may not be to get an early check-in if the room is in use the night before (common for a building with a small number of units like this one). They let you keep your luggage in the hallway if you come early. Cancellation policies are unfavorable and there is no reception on sight (only by phone). However, there is a tourist information office that is very helpful and only a short walk away.

Thanks again for the great reviews. We do everything possible for our guests, including a
free early check in if the apartment was not taken on the day before they arrive. Check out is
at noon and after cleaning the apartment is is ready for check in no later than 3 pm when it
was in use the day before your arrival. We offer great value (say our guests in these reviews) and
this is possible because there is no staff on hand except for cleaning. Check in is very fast: You
push a button on the intercom and we open the door for you. In the hallway you find an envellope
with your name containing the apartment key, and everything has been arranged in advance, including payment. So you are inside your apartment 1 minute after you arrive. Check out is even
faster - you just leave your key in the apartment and go! The other reason we offer good value is
that our rates are non refundable. No cancellations allowed. If you ar not sure you will travel on
the dates you have chosen, take out a travel insurance. Then enjoy our very popular apartments at great prices !

Enjoyed a nice stay at the Embassy Apartments in Reykjavik in Aug 2010. Excellent location, large, well appointed room and reasonably priced (by Iceland or any other European standard). Easy to book and check in and out couldn't be any easier. Just what we were looking for.

We stayed in Apartment 70, while traveling through Reykjavik with small children. Spacious and clean, a thoughtfully and efficiently equipped kitchen, good location, courteous and prompt service. Location easily accessible. Highly recommended.

With reference to our recent stay at the Embassy Luxury Apartment we were extremely pleased with all aspects of the apartment - everything was in working order and
the staff we encountered were very friendly and curteous. We did
previously visit Iceland in 2007 at which time we stayed in the
Castle House Apartments which were also very good. We would
definately recommend your apartments to anyone visiting Iceland who prefer to do their own cooking.

We stayed in the studio apt #80. For the price and location (5 minutes from downtown and close to restaurants and grocery stores), I think this apartment is a good choice. It is very clean and quiet, and comes with all amenities. WIFI was great. Bathroom is a touch small but that is why the room is cheaper. We took the FlyBus at 6:45am having landed from JFK. We then transferred at the main bus station and got on a smaller shuttle which dropped us off at Hotel Reykjavik Centrum - which is a 4 minute walk to the apartment. Two things to note: #1 - check in is not until 3pm - so we had to hang out in a coffee shop waiting for the room which is difficult when you have taken a red-eye and want to sleep. #2 - you can store your luggage at the apt but that means that you leave it unattended in the hallway until your room is available.

Thanks for all the good reviews. Our check out time is at 12 noon, then we need to clean the apartments so check in is at 3 pm at the latest. If the apartment happens to have been free the
day before, we let our guests check in from 8 am without an extra charge.

We store luggage until the apartment is ready. If we are not there when guests arrive we offer
it in the hallway. However when we arrive, we put the luggage in a better place.
There are only 4 apartments sharing an entrance so very little traffic goes through the hallway.

There is another possibility to store luggage: The BSI Bust terminal has lockers available.

The flights from the US always arrive very early. Some of our guests use the opportunity to
stop at the Blue Lagoon on their way to Reykjavik. The Flybus takes them there and picks up again for the trip to Reykjavik.

We stayed at the Embassy Luxury Apartments in July, 2010. It was very convenient to the all the restaurants, museums, shopping in Reykjavik. The apartment was very clean, up to date and had all the kitchen utensils we would ever need. We enjoyed grocery shopping and cooking while we were there. We stayed in the studio size apartment which was perfect for my husband and I as we were out most of the day touring the city and countryside. They also had wi-fi which was convenient.
Embassy Apartments is on a quiet street with the Russian Embassy (thus Embassy Apartments!) just down the street and other embassies around the corner. It was very easy to walk to the pool and down to the harbor as well. Although technically the apartment wasn't available until the afternoon, we arrived on a very early morning flight from the states and the apartment was ready at 8 am. Lucky us! The staff at Embassy had a map and some tourist materials available in the apartment lobby and in our room. The television was nice to have as well so we could enjoy the World Cup!
It was well stocked and if we ran out of something, there was a cupboard on the landing with paper products.
Booking the Embassy Apartments was very easy and their website is very good as well.
Can't wait to return to Reykjavik...!
