Wow. Rooms are super stylish (as is everything in Iceland), clean, comfortable and for a country not known for being budget friendly - very affordable! We booked in advance and even from the e-communications I could tell this place was top notch. Jessica is the name of the manager and she was so helpful before we got there and even...

What a disappointment this was... After arriving in Iceland for the first time (on my Birthday) I was looking forward to my stay. When I checked in I was advised my room would be on the Ground Level(!!) I asked the woman at the front desk if I could stay at higher floor (so I could get some views) but...

The room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. The desk staff were very helpful and in one case staff went far beyond what I would consider a normal level of effort in trying to help a stranded family. The staffer in this case simply would not quit until the family was looked after. The process took a couple of hours....

This was our first trip to Iceland and we had no idea what to expect. We arrived at Room with a View around mid-morning and, after we found the entrance, which proved a bit of a challenge to us, were welcomed very warmly. Our apartments weren't ready (as was to expected) but we were able to stow our luggage in...

The Apartment was Beautiful. Tons of room to spread out. We loved it. We will stay in Room with a view next year on your way to Riding-Iceland tour. What a treat after a week roughing it to come back to such a beautiful comfy place.

The apartment itself was nice (we were upgraded to a larger place on the top floor), with a spacious sitting/dining room and separate bedroom and bathroom. The location was perfect, and there was plenty of street parking (free meters 18:00-10:00). The balcony had a lovely view. The woman who checked us in was very friendly and helpful. However, there was...

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights July 19 - 25 2014. We drove around Iceland for most of the trip but did spend a couple days just checking out Reykjavik and had the room here as our 'home base'. You either stay in the main building or a second building just across the street. We stayed across...

It was a bad experience to stay in such apartment. We booked a 30m room, but we were given a less than 20m room and told that the hotel was full and we could not change a room until two days later. It was nosiy as construction was going on until 8pm in the evening. The telephone and wifi were...

These apartments are very well-located on the main street of Reykjavik. Everything was really close and there were plenty of cafes, restaurants and food shops nearby. We had a 3 bedroom on the 1st floor. It was spacious and had 2 modern bathrooms and a really good kitchen but didn't have a washer/dryer which would have been useful and I...

“The name ROOM WITH A VIEW is not really appropriate, as the only view you will see from your room is the streets, and the roof tops.”
