My 3 friends and I stayed at Room With a View, June 30 and July 12-16. We stayed in room 510 -- what a great apartment. We had just spent 12 days on a ship in tiny cabins, so this place was a palace in comparison! The bedroom had 2 twin beds. The living room had a comfortable leather couch and chair and was large with a huge wall of windows. We had a dining room and kitchen containing everything we needed. We even had a huge balcony with a great view of the harbor. The furnishings were all IKEA-esque. One person slept on a the couch, one on a cot, and 2 in the bedroom. It worked out great. The curtains on the windows were fairly thick and managed to block out much of the midnight sun. The windows must have been double-paned or reinforced -- we were on the street, but we never heard any street noise.

Arni, the owner, was wonderful. He really made us feel welcome and provided us with great touring tips and even made some arrangments for us. We felt he was really worried about us, which was nice (especially when we went traipsing around the country with a crappy map).

The apartments were in a great location - right in the center of everything. There were some fabulous bakeries just a short walk away. You did have to feed the parking meter between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., but usually we were on the road at that time. You could also park in the nearby residential area for free.

I would definitely stay here again.

Our experience with our stay at Room With A View Apartments was very positive. We had a 6th floor room with an exterior balconey that provided a great view of the harbor and the downtown area. From the outside this place didn't look impressive but the accomodations were fine. The bed was extremely comfortable; everything was clean and in good working order; and the staff was available to provide assistance when requested. This is definately a place you should consider staying at when visiting Reykjavik.

If you want to discover Reykjavik, then Room with a view is ideally situated in the heart of town, within easy reach of a wide selection of restaurants.

We decided to go self-catering because we were travelling with an 18 months old baby and felt a hotel or guest house would not offer enough privacy and flexibility. We were very lucky to find Room with a View via a search engine and just their website is an invitation to travel. Our flat (number 603, 1 bedroom with King size bed, situated on 6th floor) was very nicely decorated and had everything we needed, including a cot and a high chair.

Arni and Siggi were very helpful every time we had a question, lending us DVDs, giving us advice on what to do... When they say they're here to help, they mean it! The view from the balcony is breathtaking, even when the weather is bad and access to the jacuzzi is a wonderful plus.

Arni and Siggi certainly made our stay special. If you want a nice time in Reykjavik, then start with booking your stay at Room with a View, you won't be disappointed.
