“Location & comfort”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

Our large apartment at the hotel was modern, spacious and comfortable. The hotel is near all of the major sights in Reykjavik, and we walked everywhere. A pleasant staff gave helpful advice. Too bad there were no black-out shades in the bedroom, so we used eye shades for sleeping in the never-ending summer days.

This property is one of four and it seemed to be the smallest of the properties but our room was still very spacious with a kitchenette, good bathroom and everything was clean and comfortable. The reception staff was really helpful and friendly. Our booking included a breakfast basket which was delivered every day of our stay and included enough food that we were even able to make lunch from it. The room had cereal, tea, coffee, milk and juice in the fridge and every morning fresh bread from a local bakery was delivered warm to our door to compliment the breakfast basket. So fabulous! It is about a 50 minute bus ride from the airport but once into downtown Reykjavik, you are close to shopping and restaurants. Be prepared though for expensive food costs. Reykjavik is a great walking city and we enjoyed a free walking tour which gave a lot of interesting historical information. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Coming off a 5 day/4 night hut-to-hut trek, it was paradise to walk into our room and find a washer / dryer, kitchennette, wonderful shower, sitting room, and nice bedding. The location is ideal. Right off the main shopping street, yet quiet and safe. I was with my teenage niece and nephew and all 3 of us loved it.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms in their facility behind the main building.

My daughter and I stayed four nights in the beginning of June at this charming hotel perfectly located close to the main shopping street. The room was large, clean and quiet and the beds soft and comfy. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to assist us. We would absolutely stay at this hotel again. /Christel and Nicole

We had a whirlwind stopover in Reykjavik. Returning to the US from Belgium and we did not want to pass up the opportunity to spend a night in Iceland. We selected the Reykjavik Residence Hotel firstly because of location and the reviews were good. While in the reservation process we noted that we could, for an additional fee, have the hotel pick us up at Keflavik Airport and drop us off the next morning. We knew there was a bus that could do this, but the fee was actually quite reasonable for the four us. Getting off the plane our ride was present and accounted for. The ride to the city was pleasant, our driver full of interesting information about Iceland and the city itself. When we arrived at the hotel, all was prepared. We were in a one bedroom “efficiency apartment” on the third floor of a beautiful older, historic building. Very neat and clean. Our rooms were set up for four and had several skylights to take in the midnight sun. A small kitchen had some nice appliances for our use. We opted for an additional charge breakfast basket that was delivered to our room because we were leaving early the next morning and thought we may want something before we had to go. It was varied and interesting, but frankly, I could have done without it. The beds were comfortable, and the bathroom was spacious and modern. The windows all had heavy curtains to make it dark for sleeping. The next morning the staff was helpful and efficient and our ride was right on time. I wish we had more time in the hotel and this town. I hope to return soon.

This is an excellent location if you want to go out in Reykjavik for the evening. We had an apartment in the newly-refurbished building behind the reception. Decor was very stylish, beds great, and all to a high standard. Staff were also helpful and friendly.
