“location and comfort...unbeatable combination!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

We recently stayed at Castle House for 4 nights, and it was the ideal base for exploring Reykjavik and other areas. The two staff members we met were friendly and welcoming, and the apartment was extremely comfortable, immaculate, and well set up. Everything was new and of good quality. The location was perfect; in a quiet area right next to the Icelandic Art Museum with its handsome architecture, yet a 5-minute walk from the main shopping and dining street. There was a supermarket and a bakery very close by. Highly recommended!

I didn't book this hotel and was hesitant. I didn't need to be at all. It is the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in. The location is perfect. It is quiet. The owners are helpful and kind. The coffee in the room was great. The space is very cute. We loved it and will stay here on our next Reykjavik trip.

Room Tip: The rooms in the separate building are very convenient. I highly recommend them.

Our apartment had everything you could want from a base to travel to and from whilst holidaying...and if you couldn't find something or needed anything, the staff were great. Clean apartment and surprisingly very warm.
Great location, making it easy to get home after an excursion or a night out.
well and truly recommended. If we were to return i would stay here again. Enjoy!

Echoing all the other reviewers, the location of this apartment is perfect for the shops and restaurants in Reykavik. Not particularly luxurious but probably the cleanest hotel/apartment I have ever stayed in, not a speck of dust anywhere and has a well stocked kitchen. We had apartment 20 with the lovely balcony and view and would highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Book apartment 20 for the balcony and view of the city pond.

My husband and I stayed in apartment 61 for 3 nights. It was the perfect size for us and very relaxing and quiet. We made breakfast each morning and dinner one night - the kitchenette was perfectly stocked with everything we needed. We couldn't of asked for a better location as it was easy to walk to all the sights we wanted to see. We did a couple days trips thru excursion companies and it was no problem for them to pick us up from the apartments. The bathroom was big and the floors were heated - a nice treat coming in from the cold weather! We would definitely stay again and recommend to all!

We stayed this month and had a phenomenal time! We rented Apartment 20 and could not have asked for any better. It was plenty of room for two people and our gear. It had a beautiful balcony and we made a lot of good use of it watching people and the pond. There are plenty of great shops and restaurants extremely close by. There was so much to do in Iceland, we couldn't fit it all into our trip! We rented a car, and though street parking was inexpensive, we walked about two blocks each day for free street parking. Couldn't have been simpler.

Some people have commented about the lack of customer service, but this was right up our alley. We are admittedly very low maintenance and relatively introverted people. We were very glad to be buzzed in and have our keys waiting for us after a long flight. We received a phone call very shortly after we arrived making sure everything was okay and telling us about the area and amenities. We also received tons of information via email from the staff prior to our trip. Very helpful. They even left us a nice card, fruit, and flowers after we had offhandedly mentioned we were coming for our anniversary! We chose to only have our room cleaned once for our week stay since we generally tidy up after ourselves, but the service was top-notch and quick. We even received fresh towels by our door on the days we chose to clean up after ourselves.

One suggestion I would give, but not even a big deal was, I wish they had a separate refuse container for recycling. We kept ours in a bag by the sink which was taken (and hopefully recycled!) when we had our room cleaned. We took some of the other recycling we gathered for the rest of the trip down the street to a public recycling box. It just would have been more convenient if it had been there, but nothing that took away from our trip.

We loved staying here and it was part of making memories for us that will last a lifetime! We hope to come back again and will definitely stay at the Castle House apartments. I cannot say enough good things about it!

Thank you for your great review. I am glad our efforts are appreciated :)
We have now put an insulating carpet on the staircase and hope this
will minimize disturbance from guests leaving very early in the morning.
We do recycle all glass, bottles, cans, paper and cardboard.
There is a 24/7 customer service and we quickly respond to any call.
We look forward to your next visit to Iceland and to Castle House.

We stayed in one of the studio apartments for one night. Small but perfectly formed with even a small kitchenette. Great location really close to the centre. The best value of all the places we stayed in Iceland. Would definitely stay again.
