Rey Apartments Hotel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Highly recommend. We stayed for a week in Reykjavik using Rey's compact one bedroom as a home base. It was perfect with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. It was also nice to have a small kitchen for breakfasts and other meals. (This saved us quite a bit of money....) It can get a little noisy at night on weekends because they go c-r-a-z-y and you are right downtown in the middle of the action, but this didn't bother us. The rest of the week is quiet. Beds are super comfortable!! Would stay again and definitely recommend to others.

We stayed just the one night but wished we could have stayed longer in this apartment. We've stayed in a lot of self-catering properties and this one is the BEST by a long way. It was bright, clean, spacious and warm and even better, right in the heart of Reykjavik, close to restaurants, bars and the sights. We met both owners and they were very friendly and helpful - and saved us from missing our trip to the Blue Lagoon ahead of flying out, which we really appreciate. Don't look any further than this - you'll struggle to find better.

We stayed for 4 nights at Rey Apartments in March. We chose a small studio room as we knew we don't want to spend time in the room apart from sleeping.

The room was tidy and well equipped (TV, DVD player, kitchen utensils, kettle, microwave, coffee machine, etc.). It has also been cleaned once during our stay.

The location is very handy as everything is within walking distance.

I definitely recommend it!

We stayed for one night at the end of our trip to Iceland. It suited the purpose perfectly. We had a lovely two bedroom apt on the top floor. It was very new and clean, and nicely decorated with a Scandi feel. Living/dining/kitchen area was spacious and kitchen very well equipped. Bedrooms were a little bit small but beds were comfy, and its central position made it great for an overnight stay. As everyone we met in Iceland, the staff were very friendly and helpful - producing a baby cot and bedding at v short notice!

Stayed at the Rey Apartments for 4 nights in early April 2014. Had the studio room on the second floor. Room was very large with a big queen size bed, separate couch, small kitchen with 2-burner cooktop, microwave, fridge and plenty of kitchen utensils (cups, plares, bowls, glasses, wine glasses, cutlery, etc). Separate full height closet with 6 hangers, iron and ironing board. Bathroom was clean and bright with shower stall (no tub, which was fine forme).

Excellent location just 1 block from main shopping street which has plenty of restaurants, cafe/coffee/tea houses. A health food/gluten free shop just up the block. A small grocery store just 2-3 blocks walk. Very very convenient for those who enjoy getting to know a place by walking.

Other reviewers complained of noise from late night reveillers, but I experienced none of that, perhaps because the studio room does not face a street, but rather a small internal courtyard. Also, experienced no noise from any neighbouring suite, and only the occasional noise from the stairs/hallway. All in all a very quiet stay.

Rey Apartments is well know to tour operators and the bus service. Absolutely no problems with pickups for tours - everyone knew where it was.

My only interaction with the owners was at checkin, but they were very efficient, friendly, helpful withdirections to food stores, shopping, tourist office, bank machines, etc.

Highly recommend the Rey Apartments. Will definitely stay there again.

We spent three nights in a top floor three bad apartment. Really liked it. Well equipped with full kitchen and large dining table. oven, microwave, toaster, coffee machine, fridge/freezer and dish washer. Open plan to sofa and telly area.

The three bedrooms are a double/twin, triple and quad. The only downside are the thin walls. The double is next to the adjoining apartment's kitchen and you can hear every word - thankfully our neighbors weren't too noisy but I could tell you they had bacon sandwiches as the smell wafted in!!!

There are steep stars to the apartment but if you are fit it is no problem ad the helpful an will carry cases up and down.

It s very central and close to everything in central Reykjavik. Parking is no problem as meters everywhere. Free from 6pm to 10am.

I would recommend to anyone.
