“Fabulous Rey Apartments Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

We just came back from an overnight stay at the Rey after 5 days trekking in Iceland. The Rey is a design heaven-everything from the lobby (great images on walls, lighting, pops of color) to the pared-down, perfectly proportioned rooms, are an eye-feast. Our room was super cozy, but quite large and light and I loved the bathroom (great shower arrangement. We had seen our friends' room the previous week (they also loved the Rey) and we knew we wanted to stay when we returned to Reykjavik. Lastly, but not at all least, the staff was terrific-very warm, welcoming and helpful. A total recommend!

Loved it. Stayed for 1 night in a 1 bedroom apartment. It was very modern and clean. Bathroom was clean and one of the best in iceland.
The apartment was one of the biggest we stayed in while in iceland.Would definitley recommend.

I expected centrally located and clean self catering accomodation.

What I got was the most convenient location you could get in Reykjavic, Walking distance to pretty much anything you want to do In Reykjavic. Plus it was Super Clean, and Super Stylish!

And on top of that the owners were Fantastic. We had a little "medical emergency" while we were in Iceland, and Gier was amazing. He made lots of phone calls for us, gave us great advice, and was able to get us accommodate us when we needed more nights at the when we missed our tour to the West Fjords.

Really over and above what one would expect at self catering accommodation. More like what one would expect at the concierge of a full service hotel.

During our stay I was able so see a number of the apartments at the Rey, and I have to tell you that they are all amazing. Especially the "Penthouse" on the fourth floor. If you are traveling with a group or largish family - you have to stay here!!!!!

I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: There are no phones or alarm clocks in the apartments. Bring your own.

What a surprise this place was! A really modern apartment within walking distance of everything. Pubs, shops and restaurants all on your doorstep. The bathroom was huge! It was a great place to stay on our last night in Reykjavik. If you're looking for somewhere central, then look no further.. this is the place!

Geir, the owner was just so helpful and patient. Explained everything we needed to know about this attractive, smart, efficient apartment. Slept 6 of us comfortably; 4 adults, 2 children. Walk one block to the main street, shops, restaurant, bookstore.
Highly recommend this little hotel. Kathy jensen, Portland Oregon aug 10, 2012

We stayed in Iceland for a week With our extended family of 7. We had 2 apartments, both fully equipped with everything we needed during our stay. We shopped for groceries at a local market and ate out a few times as well. The guys running the Rey were so accommodating when we arrived early. They got our rooms ready for us and we had a nice nap, since we had taken the red eye from DC. It was nice to rest u before hitting the town. The apartments were furnished all in IKEA, which meant a very clean, crisp feel. The location was perfect, walking distance to so much in Reykjavik. Nice shops and bakeries very close.
The only issues we had were road construction and the acoustics. The road construction was only a minor inconvenience and the small lack of sound proofing in the building was also minor. We stayed there during summer, so if you like it dark when you sleep, I recommend you bring n eye mask.
We absolutely a loved Iceland, Reykjavik, and the Rey! If...no, when we go back to Iceland we will stay at the Rey apartments!

I stayed at the Rey apartments for two nights and in would be back again! The apartments are clean and modern and the location is perfect, close to all shops and the harbour.

Reykjavik is very expensive but I found these apartments to be quite reasonable, and its so useful to be able to have breakfast or snacks in your apartment as eating out is really crazily expensive in the city!!

One thing to remember: take your own shampoo etc, this is not provided
