Great apartments in the heart of Reykjavik
Cannot thank the team at the Swan House enough for their hospitality, friendliness and professionalism over the last few weeks in the middle of the Corona crisis. Based on the situation my plans changed frequently and a few times at short notice I needed to extend my stay and this was never an issue. Multiple times each day I saw them disinfecting all common services - lift buttons, door handles, counters. They kept their distance yet were available for anything you needed, or even just a chat at this horrible time. Thank you for providing comfort to your guests that are so far from home during these hard times. Regarding the apartments themselves - they are in a great location just a few minutes walk to the main street, restaurants, supermarket, shopping area, Hallgrimskirkja, and the Sun Voyager. The street is quiet with ample metered parking. The rooms I stayed in were spacious, clean and comfortable. There were basic amenities provided so you could prepare your own meals - kettle, toaster, saucepans, crockery, utensils, stove and fridge. The communal laundry with washing machines and clothes dryer were very welcomed! I would stay here again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to others.

We had a room with a sitting area and kitchen. Idea for self catering in this expensive city. This is a two minute walk from the Main Street of the city with bars, restaurants and shops. Also the same distance from the pick up for all of the excursions.
