“Great Staff, Great rooms, Great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

The Reykjavik Residence Suites was fantastic with friendly English speaking staff, superb rooms and a breakfast that could feed a family of 4 even thou it was just 2 of us. The location is ideal for bars and restaurants, but just far enough away to not be disturbed by the nightlife. if you are going to the National Theatre, stay here as its next door. Plus a free upgrade to suite made even more enjoyable.

Staff were extremely helpful and spoke perfect English.

Our room was ungraded from Reykjavik hotel to the Suites, we were phoned in advance to be told. The staff had told the travel companies that our address had been changed before our arrival. We had a 4 nights in a ground floor apartment.

Fri & Sat nightlife is loud and can be heard from the hotel, although the excellent staff, location & modern amenities make up for it.

We would definitely stay again and I've already recommend it to friends and family!

We stayed here in Oct for 2 nights with a group of friends (4 of us). We stayed in one of the top floor room (801). Everyone in our group loved this place! Honestly, what's not to love about this hotel/apartment/suites? We fall in love with it the minute we walked in and was very sad when we had to leave.

There was no elevator, but the girl worked the front desk helped us take our suitcases to our room (on the very top floor). We were all amazed by how strong she was!

The location is excellent, very close to almost everything. It's one street away from the main shopping/restaurant area. And it's far away that you don't get all the traffics. Although, one thing I would like to mention, the road that it is currently sitting on being worked on. And there is also construction nearby (like right outside our window) so there are noises in the early morning.

It was vary confusing for us the first time trying to find the place because everywhere we turn the road was close! Thankfully, we have some sense of direction and was able to get to the hotel without the GPS.

There is a parking garage right across the road, make sure you let the staff know you need to park there and they will give you a key card to use. There were some confusion during our first night so I had to pay for the parking myself which the hotel later refund back to me. Make sure you mentioned that you have a car as if you don't then I don't think parking would be included with your room.

The breakfast tray was awesome! They even left a bag of bread for us to snack on (or feed the ducks at the lake) each morning. Everything was so yummy and even though we aren't always 100% sure what it is, we tried everything.

Wifi worked great for us, staff were really friendly and even made us coffee while we used the business center. She even helped us make reservation at the restaurant. She also gave us very good directions to places.

Overall, the price is on the expensive side, but sharing between 4 people made it a little better. But if you are looking for budget traveling, this is probably not the place for you.

We spent three nights in this hotel and liked everything about it. The location is excellent - quiet and very close to the center. The hotel looked and felt like a mansion where we were two of the few privileged guests. Our apartment was spacious and decorated with taste. It was impeccably clean, comfortable and luxurious. Even the kitchen utensils were high quality and brand new. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delivered the night before, and freshly baked bread was waiting on the doorknob each morning. I cannot think of anything that was not to be liked. Highly recommended.

We just spent 2 nights in Reykjavik at the Residence Suites. Our 2 bedroom (upgraded) suite was clean, homey and tastefully done. There was even orange juice, milk, corn flakes, coffee and tea in our apt. for the first morning! Staff was very friendly and helped us carry our luggage up 2 flights of stairs (no elevator). They also made arrangements for the airport shuttle bus to pick us up in the alley right in front of the apt (which was appreciated at 4 a.m. in Dec!) instead of us having to walk to the main entrance of the hotel. Very convenient location to downtown, grocery store, post. Look forward to staying here again!

Room Tip: ask if road work in front of the apts. is done

We just came back from Reykjavik where we spent 4 nights in Residence Suites. It has a lot of character and it looks amazing. It was the house of a famous Prime Minister. Even the King of Denmark stayed there. So if you want to experience a historical atmosphere come to Residence Suites. All is very clean, the bed really comfortable and the staff is amazingly helpful and nice. They are really special people. The only downside of the whole experience was that there are some bars nearby and sometimes it may be noisy...but just for a short while cause we were in Iceland and people can't stay outside for long..just to have a smoke and that's all...
Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay in Residence Suites and we really recommend it for an excellent stay in Reykjavik. Also the location is just perfect....extremely central.

Room Tip: We stayed in the studio, and that is a lot more quiet than the other suites.

We really enjoyed our stay at Reykjavik Residence Suites this past week. The location was perfect for walking around downtown Reykjavik. Parking is not included but there was safe street parking available right next to the hotel, which was much cheaper than the 20 euro parking garage.

The room worked out great for us - it was a decent size and it was well heated. There was a small kitchenette included as well so it was easy for us to heat up leftovers and chill our wine. There unfortunately was construction across the street so it was loud in the morning but we woke up early most days anyways to sightsee. We recommend this hotel for anyone else visiting Reykjavik!
