We felt welcome and comfortable the minute we walked in. The location
was perfect for us. You can walk all over town or catch a bus nearby to
go explore. There was plenty of room to be comfortable, the apartment
was clean, and well supplied, although I did go out and buy an American
sized coffee mug for my morning coffee. There are plenty of dishes and
cups, I just need a big one in the morning. Next time I will bring one
with me and leave it for the next person. We were close to grocery
stores so we had access to food to prepare at the apartment-although it
is expensive! I was happy I prepared small packets of herbs and spices I
knew I would use and brought from home so I didn't have to purchase
any. There were bakeries and cafés everywhere, too. Our apartment was
quiet so I slept well every night-even the weekend when the bars are
open all night! It was nice to have the satellite tv with news and
programs in many languages. I didn't watch much, but it was good to
have world news and a show to watch during some quiet time when I just
wanted to relax a bit with my feet up. The wifi was free and fast. We
stayed connected whenever we wanted. I could go on and on, but recommend
you come and see for yourself. We will definitely stay here again!
There was only one small thing that could have been a bit better and
that was the freezer compartment needed defrosting. I had a hard time
getting my package of frozen vegetables to fit because the ice took up
more than half the space. That is very minor. I was so glad to have a
clean refrigerator and small freezer! I feel a little guilty even
mentioning it at all.
The place is located almost at the center of the city and closed to
everywhere. The management is more than friendly. The bed is comfortable
and the room is very clean. The shower is very powerful. So, you can
have a self massage through water. The towels are bigger and softer than
regular hotel towels. I can recommend this facility with no doubt.
Nothing to report.
Everything was perfect!
modern, clean apartment. Quiet position even though it is very close to the main high street.
nothing to dislike!
I am too lazy to rate the hotels I have stayed before. But I want to make an exception this time. Rey Apartment is really nice. My wife loves it !
Very comfortable beds. Great location, very clean, apartment had everything we needed. Grocery store right around corner. Free Internet. Staff was extremely nice. Great stay.
Front door to building was hard to open.
Excellent apartment. We were extremely comfortable, in a great location.
Loved the large windows, comfortable beds and well stocked kitchen. Just
There was nothing we did not like, it was a great apartment. We did
notice that the shower leaks water in apartment 303, the water than
pools to the right, just behind the bathroom door. This is no way
bothered us, I just mention it so that it can be fixed so that water
damage is not caused to this wonderful gem of a place!
The location was right in the centre and the apartment itself was
spacious and being able to cook meals saved us a fortune! Bonus is the
cheapest supermarket and is just around the corner. We had access to all
English channels on the tv which meant the spare hour of downtime was
like being in England with more interesting things to see and do. We
arrived early and left late but were able to store our bags on both
occasions. The apartment was really easy to find. Brilliant bathroom
with hair dryer and towels etc provided. The shower was very powerful .
Absolutely stunning value!
Location was great,free off-street parking if you are quick, clean, tidy fresh and uncluttered. Great views too,
A colander in the kitchen and a dock to play music would have made it perfect.
Spotlessly clean, sunny and ikea modern, our Rey apartment for 7 days in
March was the ideal spot for enjoying downtown Reykjavik. Having
everything within walking distance, then coming "home" to a
warm kitchen, living room and exquisitely comfortable bed -- this must
be the best lodging deal in town.
For Large Americans, the shoebox of a bathroom sink takes getting used
to, but you'll appreciate the good design!
Location and facilities were fantastic, very modern and cool! Really felt like home by the end of the trip and we loved having a base where we could relax!
For one of the nights it was quite noisy as our window backed on to the outside area where there were some livelier guests who woke us up but thankfully the noise was short lived!
Right in the centre.
Clean room and good beds, spacious room.
A little noisy
Knowledgeable, friendly staff
Comfortable. spacious apartment
Value for money
I have stayed at Rey Apartments many times and have already booked for July
We had the 2 bedroom penthouse, which was lovely and spacious. It supplied all the amenities we would need for our stay. The location was brilliant, only 2 min walk to the main shopping street and nightlife. I would stay here again if returning to Reykjavik.
The 2nd bedroom was a bit small, so we had to keep our suitcases in the lounge, which wasn't a huge issue as the lounge was huge.
Friendly welcome, clean and tidy, right in the city centre, free reliable wi-fi, secure.
No oven (only a hob) made cooking a little tricky, no tin opener, sink in bathroom a little cramped.
The apartments were perfectly located. Extremely clean and really
spacious. Well heated, lots of utilities inside. Huge bathroom. And
supplied with nice little touches like shower gel, kitchen cleaning
items and things like salt and pepper etc. Very homely touches. Would
definately stay here again. Staff really helpful changing tour bookings
for us. Really good value for money. Lovely place to stay.
There is absolutely nothing to dislike. I would say the penthouse has a
few steep steps to get there but it is a penthouse after all so no
Street-facing apartments are noisy
Fantastic location near shops and restaurants in city centre, clean, excellent facilities including coffee machine and coffee!
Didn't find bed very comfortable but that's just personal preference as it was a nice bed! Nothing else even vaguely negative!
It's great value for money. Good location
The cooking from next room. It gets into our apt.
Great location, very bright and clean rooms, the guys who own the
apartment were charming and incredibly helpful with recommendations,
even booking some things for us and helping us locate an item we'd
left behind at another location. I would stay here again and higly
recommend the apartments.
A little bit of street noise from early morning cars/trucks and
folks leaving the bars at night.
Loved the location. Was very quiet and could not hear other travelers except for in the hallway a bit, but they were loud and rude. Clean and really nice staff. Highly recommend this place to stay. We usually stay at hotels, and we preferred this.
Shower is a bit small, but that's about it.
It's a clean, modern and big apartment. Very Nice!!
No lift!!!!! We have three baggages..it was big trouble.
Good location, good facitlities
Although we were in a small studio there was ample space. Very modern, comfortable, well equipped, better than many hotels and well placed for City Centre and restaurants. Would definitely stay there again if in Reykjavik.
Friendly service, very clean and comfortable room.
An excellent apartment. Very clean, modern furnishings, extremely
helpful owners and super location. We would definitely recommend. It is
a 2 minute walk to the main shopping street, supermarket is 5 mins away.
We cooked to save some money on eating out and chilled out watching tv
and dvds. Shower /wet room is gorgeous – our sons didn’t want to get
out! Double bed (very comfortable hard mattress) and two singles all in
one room with wardrobe space, large windows to let in natural light and
crisp white bedding. Living room has a sofa and two single chairs as
well as a table with four chairs. Toaster, oven, hob, microwave, fridge
and small freezer within. Some road noise from passing cars but we live
in a very rural area so we expected to hear more than we do at home. We
all slept really well! Owner advised, without prompting, that he is
going to change the windows to improve soundproofing which we did not
feel is overly necessary but the owner said he wants to keep improving
the property. We could wait in the downstairs reception area for our
tour guide to arrive so no standing around in the cold outside. We could
not have been happier. ☺
The bed was so comfy we didn't want to get out of it! The staff were so nice - they didn't mind us arriving at 2am after a late-arriving flight and then subsequently getting lost in Reykjavik.
There wasn't very much space to put our things - i would have liked a chest of drawers or shelves for clothes.
Good value for money. Small but well laid out. Simple but stylish decor. Great facilities and close to city centre. Friendly and helpful staff on arrival, especially as we were delayed by 4 hours. Close to many restaurants, small supermarkets and craft shops.
We were told on arrival that the appartment would be cleaned after the 2nd day - this did not happen. On a weekend, it's quite noisy as Icelanders go partying till the early hours of the morning!
Was a great place to stay right in centre of town, we had a small modern studio which was ample for the 2 of us, everything was provided and the staff were fabulous. The bed was a bit small for the 2 of us as we are both really tall but there is a sofa bed that solved that problem ;-)
I would return tomorrow if I could!!
Excellent location in the city centre, friendly staff, very clean, spacious, the best beds we've slept on in Iceland. Well equipped kitchen, great bathroom, good wifi-signal, all positive!
we loved everything about the stay here,the staff were so friendly and helpful with any requests we had. the room was kept clean all the time and the facilities inside were ll we needed,plus free wifi. cant wait to stay again
Perfect for what we were looking for. Great value for money. Clean right in the city centre next to restaurants bars and only a short walk to the harbour. Great friendly welcome from staff when we arrived.
There was no lift
you will not regret staying here .. location is fab and the owners are fantastic
The beds are very good and comfortable
Difficult to get parking place outside. The living room not so comfortable and we walk through the bedroom when we came in. The apartment not so nice organized
