We took a fairly last minute trip to Reykjavik for a landmark birthday occasion, needed somewhere to lay our heads and relax.
Not many budget friendly places were left; this looked ok.... It was FABULOUS.
Tucked out the way, but right next to the old harbour. 2 minutes walk to bars and eateries, 5 minutes walk to central shops and bus station. Taxis within easy reach but there is plenty to reach easily on foot.
Tourist information centres are all over - you need only book day trips the day before (or on the day, if going to Northern lights).
Must sees - northern lights (take a good camera); golden circle, blue lagoon (you can go straight from airport on a handy stop off transfer); if you have more than 3 or 4 days try and fit in a trip to the east to see glaciers and puffins!
Planet apartments is a fab little self catering studio with ample space to spread out and relax, all new fittings and very 'handy'.

Because of an airline strike, I ended up having 24 hours in Iceland. I was able to book this hotel to have some quiet, relaxing time before going back to the airport. This hotel is great! The staff are very friendly, there is a shuttle that takes you to and from the airport, and the room is comfortable and clean. I was travelling alone, so I booked a single room. There was a bed and a desk, which is all I personally needed. While there was no bathroom in my room, its really not a big deal because there are several bathrooms nearby that are single, private bathrooms. Kind of like bathrooms in your house. The free wifi was also great, I was able to do my work without any problems. The hotel is extremely close to a high street with some restaurants and shops. It is also very close to the sea, where there are some cool walking paths. I highly recommend this place!

We loved the hotel and the lovely fresh bread delivered every morning. We didn't need to buy lunch for our day tours because there was plenty we could take with us. Street outside was noisy on Wednesday and Thursday nights, but over by 1am. Other reviewers have said it is noisy later on Fridays and at weekends. We would definitely stay here again.

Excellent 3 night stay at the OK Hotel, right in the centre of Reyjavik. Comfy, clean, spacious apartment worked well for 3 of us, with good restaurants nearby, including a Korean one beneath. If you want to be right in the heart of the city in a trendy apartment this is a great place to stay!

It was a perfect vacation. The hotel is located in the heart of the city with great food all around and easy walking distance to all the main attractions. The transportation options are abundant and it is a cultural paradise.
