Our apartment style room was perfect with all the basic amenities you could need - very comfortable and cozy. Great location and close to everything. The highlight was the helpful and proactive team at the front desk which promptly took care of any requests or concerns - promptly changed our breakfast baskets given our dietary preferences and added plenty of...

We loved our stay at Reykjavik Residence Hotel. Perfect location, clean and well kept. The staff was so helpful in every way. I can't say enough good about our experience. We loved having a kitchen,even if not perfectly stocked- but we learned to ask and they are quick to accommodate. We opted for the breakfast option and the arrival of...

we were surprised that we actually got a whole apt (2 bedroom!; laundry! stocked kitchen! very nicely furnished!) that was nice enough that most new yorkers would jump at the chance to live in this kind of place in their home city...and for no more than a smallish room in a hotel anywhere else. the personnel were very helpful, and...

Though a bit on the pricier side, this hotel is worth it. I booked a stay here as part of a birthday gift to myself and it is the best - the staff are super friendly, the room o stayed in was huge and bright, and definitely, definitely order breakfast with your reservation. One breakfast basket will last you the...

I was upgraded to a two bedroom apartment with a full kitchen, sitting area and washer and dryer which came in handy. The room was located in the building behind the main building and very spacious and comfy. The staff: Bjarki, Kasia, Dilja, Cezary, Carlo, Osp, Arna, and the Manager Lara went above and beyond during my entire stay. They...

I feel like my obsessive scouring of internet reviews really paid off with this place. The hotel was was clean, homey and one street over from the main shopping street in Reykjavik. The gentleman who checked us in was so friendly and helpful (and guided us to a fantastic breakfast spot while we waited for our room to be ready)....

Our family stayed in Reykjavik Residence Hotel on May 22, 2016. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment which was located in a separate building behind the hotel. The apartment-like setup was very comfortable: full kitchen for cooking, beautiful wooden kitchen table, new Ikea cabinets, a reading/sitting room stocked with books, extra large bathroom. It was 3 bedroom apartment: one...

The hotel staff were all highly professional and willing to help. Rooms were well appointed and clean. Modern functional Nordic lavs. Located in a historic building only a block from the main tourist street, many tourist food and bar choices. Easy walk to Harpa.
