Came to know of this hotel after watching the Korean TV Show- Flowers over Boys-Iceland about 1 year ago. Well, to be frank, I naturally attach a special feeling to this hotel because my idols stayed here before. Besides, i really love the ambience here, with a nice white classy exterior and a cosy interior. Room was impeccably clean with...

We rented 2 rooms at this hotel and they could not have been more accommodating from the time we made the reservation in mid july to the time of our stay in November. This is a boutique hotel with comfortable beds, nice amenties, clean rooms and a breakfast you can order (for an additional charge) and have in your room...

We stayed here for a week and it was really perfect all around. The staff (Kaisa was especially great) were tremendously helpful in all respects, including going out of their way to assist in a way which larger hotels would never do with reservations/appointments/local info, etc. They were the basis of my raving review really. The hotel is nice and...

I was able to get the last room at this hotel for my Iceland Air layover. The location is literally perfect: One block off the busy street, and another block or so from the harbor. The staff is incredibly polite and accommodating, and genuinely helpful! My room was "upgraded" to a HUGE 3 bedroom apartment for the price of a...

Lovely hotel with friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in a 2 bed apartment which was really spacious, spotless and with great decor and furnishings. It had everything we needed for our stay. The breakfast basket and fresh bread delivered to our room daily was definitely worth it and we were able to sample the local cheeses etc. The hotel...

We stayed at Reykjavik Residence Hotel for 5 nights in November 2016, for my wife's 40th birthday, and really couldn't fault it whatsoever. The staff were all really helpful, friendly & welcoming. Our room (102) was spotlessly clean everyday, and the breakfast baskets were delicious, and really helped with the cost of eating out, as there was always enough leftover...

Just come back from a long weekend here. What a fabulous hotel. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment. It was just stunning and absolutely immaculate.

Centrally located. Convenient pick up & drop off for all land tours. Could cater for 6 adults with full kitchen facilities (based on 2 bedroom layout). Supermarket (named "Bonus"), shopping street, habour & landmark within 15 mins walking distance. Downside - can be a little inconvienent since there are steps or staircase that must be overcomed, if you have very...

We stayed in the one bedroom unit down the road at Hverfisgata 21. But all the staff were fantastic. I have 8 yo and 10 yo and it was perfect for the family. It was one bedroom with the sofa sleeper open and prepared for the kids to share from day one. It had a small kitchenette with coffee maker,...
