We stayed from the 21st of Dec until the 25th of Dec 2018. Check in was speedy. Room large enough for the four of us with sofa bed. The downside was bathroom was very small and Wifi too slow. No breakfast provided. Location was central

Room decoration is very poor: bare room, you don’t feel like home. It’s a good place to stay but I think it’s too expensive for amenities and facilities it has. Good sides: - internet speed is 5 mb/s (upload) and 3 mb/s (download) - clean - fresh room maintenance - comfortable

Great apartments. Location close to central town and about 5 mins walk to bus stop 7 which you use for all trips and airport transfers. We booked a 4 night trip with TUI and also used them for the South Coast tour and found them to be excellent (again). We were the only TUI

I'd say it's a medium-sized lift. You can fit about 4 people comfortably

Unsure of long term parking, but parking along the street is pretty easy. Pricing is anywhere between 150-275kr per hour.

Hi Levly13, Airport shuttles are operated by several companies in Iceland and they are available with drop-offs and pick-ups included. In summer 2017, Reykjavík City Council introduced a new bus-stop system in the city, meaning that buses are only allowed to stop at certain locations in the city center. Luckily, The Swan House is located just a 3 min walk from one of the stops :) Just make sure to choose Bus stop no. 7 (Traðarkot) as your bus-stop, and you'll be dropped off/picked up just 3 min away from The Swan House. This goes for airport transfer and all tours. Hope this information is of help! Feel free to message us here, Facebook, email or via phone if you'd like more information. Best regards, Halla from The Swan House team

Hi Kenneth, The Swan House is the sister hotel of The Publishers. You don't have to show up there before check-in, unless you would like us to store your luggage. The closest pick up location us Bus Stop 2, Austurbær, just at the end of the street from the House of Publishers.

"You can hear a lot of street noise in room 208, ask for an interior room"
"Try and get as close as you can to the elevator, the hallways are pretty long"
"As this is an apartment buidling, I belive all the rooms are uniquely laid out."
"Chose a basic room and was happy (2 people stayed)"
"In summer you may not want a room adjacent to the outdoor common area if you want peace and quiet."
