“More bang for your buck!”
Even though the apartments are not staffed like most hotels, the service was great. The guy at the front desk/lobby was very friendly. We paid for a one bedroom apartment, but got a free upgrade to a two bedroom apt in the building across the street (Brauhalt) that had a great view of the sea and mountains from both bedrooms. It was wonderful having a full kitchen and livingroom to lounge in. It was really great staying in an apt versus a traditional hotel. The extra space makes a huge difference when you're staying with more than one other person. The location was in walking distance to the main shopping/restaurant street. I would definitely stay here again!
“Not what we expected on arrival but everthing was fixed perfectly”
We had six people in our party, which included my wife and I and our two kids ages 3 and 5 and my wife's parents. We arrived early in the morning and asked if we could store some luggage until it was time to check in so he provided a locked room for us. When we came back in the afternoon to check in, however, we found that our room was a studio apartment that would sleep four with two twin beds and a futon. We were supposed to have a two bedroom apartment that would sleep six. I called the manager but he said they didn't have anything else. So we were just going to make the best of it we could and I found two twin mattresses in the basement and some linen so I made a makeshift bed for the kids in the middle of the already cramped floor. As soon as I got it set up the manager arrived and apologized for the mistake and told us he had a room set up for us at a different location (the Downtown Reykjavik Apartments). It was only a block away and worked perfectly. It was not part of the Stay Apartments chain so I think he actually called a friend of his got us a room there. We also stayed there a week later when we returned to Reykjavik and this time everything was setup correctly. The rooms are nicely furnished, clean and a perfect location. I really appreciated how the manager went out of his way to fix the situation for us.
“Great Hotel for Travellers”
Great, cheap place that's one or two notches above a hostel. If you're going to be out and about in the city, this is a perfect place to come back to and relax at the end of a long day. Clean, big living room and kitchen, balcony with a view of the city and water. Overall a very positive experience.
Great room - allowed to check in early and think we were upgraded to very nice room across the street. Plenty of room, modern and so warm. Good location.
This guesthouse is in a fantastic location, walking distance to bars and shopping and everything in reykjavik basically. Room was comfortable and clean and room, and having a kitchen is a definite plus in a city where food is expensive. However, staff was almost never there, when we arrived we were unable to check in and expedia was very unhelpful when we were stranded in a foreign city. I would stay here again, but make sure your flight lands closer to the 2pm check in time. Requesting an early check in does not mean you will get it, nor does it mean they will tell you that you did not get it. But other than that, it was a great place to stay and the people who own it were helpful the rest of the trip.
“it's guest house, so...”
room itself is good, but there are no other service like a hotel
“What to Expect When You're Expecting”
Great location! The rooms need more than just blinds due to perpetual sunlight in the summer. Trust me, it's not the Ritz, but if you're looking for a base that is just for sleeping, then go for it. It's a good value, but don't expect a red carpet.
This is a barebones type of place - a budget place but not at budget prices. Bring your own soap and shampoo, and maybe even another towel. Location is a good 10 mins walk from the main shopping street and is not so convenient.
