    Great location - steps from the center of the city, but on a quiet side street.

    • Average rating

    Our apartment was very close to the city, yet just out of reach of any noise from the nightlife. It was clean and comfortable and the staff was accommodating.

    We stayed in the hotel during summer. It would have been nice to have the option to use blackout curtains, since the sun did not set!

    Fabulous location, beautiful clean apartment, it was wonderful! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, delightful people who were cooperative and most gracious. It is an easy walk to everything, two supermarkets are near by, so shopping was fun and cooking was a snap in this well appointed apartment. They even provided tea light candles and champagne flutes! I had to leave the apartment at 5am for an early flight to Germany, the Staff arranged everything for me, even waking me up at 4am! The gentleman who drove me to the airport was delightful, despite the early hour. All in all my stay here was great! Thank you Castle House!

    The one bedroomed apartment was clean, tidy and well stocked. It is situated very close to the centre of Reykjavik, so is convient for just about everything (including the main day trip tour operators office). You have access to a 24 hr reception number which is answered promptly and any issues that you may have are dealt with quickly and effieciently. Food prices in Iceland are still very high compared to the UK, so having the option to cook (or still go out) is a good way of keeping the costs of a weekend down. We missed out seeing the northern lights, so i'll definitely be coming back and i'd definitely stay in these apartments again. (I've already passed the details on to a friend)

    The room was comfortable and warm after spending the day out in the freezing Iceland weather.

    I had booked a double room, however when we turned up we had been given a single room with a fold down bed!! I contacted the staff who were able to move us to the room we'd actually booked the next day, however this was a slight hassel it did not ruin our holiday and the member of staff who dealt with us was very friendly even informing us that we had not been the first to complain about this room allocation.

  • Older travelers

    The location, just on the outskirts of Reykjavik, was great, and the apartment itself was large, comfortable and well appointed.

    This is an apartment rental, not a hotel. As a result, there really is no staff, and that was a problem when we arrived. Our room, which we thought would be available, was still occupied, and there was really no one to explain the situation. However, the housekeeper we eventually connected with, was helpful and tried to get the room as ready as quickly as possible.

    The room has a lot of space, is nice, and is very convenient to town. It's also a good value.

    This was by far the best value for the money of all our accommodations in Iceland. Very spacious, very well-equipped kitchen and living areas, clean, modern, nice outdoor facilities. Would highly recommend, especially for families needing extra space and wanting cooking facilities.

    It was a superb, homely and well equipped apartment that was ideally located to centre of Reykjavikwith its bars and cafes. Also you can easily go on the tours of Iceland's mountains, countryside and of course their geothermal wonders.

    No none that I can think of.

    The apartments were as described: well equipped with excellent local information and centrally located. Excellent instructions given re where to pick up keys on late arrival. Everything worked perfectly.

    Nice location - next to the lake. There is a kitchen with all necessary utensils available. TV and free WiFi internet.

    There is a single bed that is convertible to the double bed. It is not very comfortable but it is OK - to make more space in a room.

    The apartment we had was great.It was the nicest place I've stayed at on vacation..My whole family felt that way and we travel quite a bit.The apartment was clean and really furnished nicely.The wifi worked great .The apartment is really quiet and it is a few streets away from the main square.

    The apartment was clean, warm, comfortable, and had all the features necessary for self-catering. But most of all I liked the location: close to the city center but also close to free parking.
