We were recommended this property by a friend who has been to Reykjavik a handful of times. We were there on honeymoon and wanted something convenient to the city but also not in a loud area. This apartment was quiet, but steps away from everything we needed, had plenty of space, and felt like a real home (comfortable couch with...

Well equipped, clean, cosy and warm apartment. Free tea, coffee, has hob, microwave, coffee machine, toaster and dishwasher. Good shower. Toilet wasn't working first night but was fixed quickly. Late check-in was also fine. Convenient, quiet location that was easily recognised for tour pickups. Only slight improvement would be to have somewhere for bag storage after checkout.

Thank you for your review. Sorry the toilet did not flush on the first night. You should have called us on the 24/7 number - we respond at once to any problem. I hope we see you soon again

This is a perfect place for many reasons. You can walk to most places in the city. The apartment is super clean, very large, and quiet. We saved a bunch of money by cooking in. Tour operators pick you up right in front of the place. As far as negatives go, I have none. Highly Recommend

My Embassy Luxury Apartment was equipped simply but well and comfortable, and conveniently positioned a five minute walk from the city centre on a quiet street. It was ideal for my purposes. The cleaning each morning was exemplary.

My husband and I recently stayed here and had a wonderful experience! We arrived very late but were able to call and get buzzed in. Ten minutes later they called our room to make sure everything was fine with the apartment. The location is wonderful--you feel like you are tucked away in a neighborhood but you are two blocks away...

We had a wonderful stay at the Embassy Luxury Apartments (which, aptly enough, is within a few houses of several embassies). The location was perfect to enjoy all the Culture Night activities--a couple of blocks to the center of town, great restaurants, and the waterfront. The apartment was very clean and comfortable, and the cleaning staff were very thorough and...

We traveled 5 countries in Europe this month & this was the only time we stayed in an apartment and the best stay ever during our 2 week trip. We stayed in apt#70, which is the largest in the building because there were 6 of us. Plenty of towel, daily housekeeping with no extra charge, there is a coffee maker,...

This is just down the street from the House of Spirits, in the P2 parking area, just a short walk from the main drag of the city. Excellent location. Very comfortable sofa (one person slept on it) with satellite TV in the livingroom. Good sized bathroom with natural light. Kitchenette in the hallway between the livingroom and bathroom and bedroom....

Would definitely recommend. The located couldn't have been better as it was a few minute's walk to restaurants and shops, Our apartment was spotlessly clean and very spacious with huge amounts of storage. Kitchen is well equipped. Quiet neighbourhood which was great.

We stayed in the 3 bedroom Apartment 70. It is spacious with a living room, dining room and small kitchen. As advertised there is one bathroom. We were pleased with overall condition and layout. We were surprised at how close it is to the the main attractions. We walked to the National Museum, the Lutheran church, and the harbor area...
