We staying at Reykjavik Residence Hotel in the last week of February 2014 and we were extremely pleased with our choice of hotel. Our room was very comfortable and very clean with the highlight being the very comfy bed. We staying in room 301 and we had a decent sized room with our own hob and sink to wash our dishes in.
As the hotel is based in the city centre, there wasn't much to look at out of the window but you are a few minutes walk away from the marina with breathtaking views of snow covered mountains.
The staff were also extremely helpful and very polite. For one of our trips, our pick-up hadn't arrived and the staff kept calling the organisers for an update and made sure that we made it for our trip.
Breakfast is left in the fridge in the rooms and fresh bread is delivered every morning which was very tasty.
When we stayed, there were roadworks outside of the hotel which started very early but this was mentioned on the hotel's website when we booked and it really wasn't that noticeable when we were there.
The only downside to the hotel was the shower which wasn't the best, but that is just being really picky to see if there are any negative points to the stay. One other aspect which may bother some people (but didn't really bother us) is that for our double bed, we were provided with two single duvets rather than a double duvet. Again, this wasn't a sticking point for us but its worth considering if things like this are important to you.
Overall, for the price and location, I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in Reykjavik.
