Reykjavik Residence Hotel Reviews
Excellent Hotel in Excellent Location May 21, 2012
I was really impressed to find this great hotel in Reykjavik with big rooms, character AND in a great location. Right in the heart of downtown, it was only about a 10 minute walk from the harbour and the famous Hallgrimskirkja church, surrounded by shops, bars and places to eat.
The room was really big by Icelandic standards, had a full kitchenette and good sized bathroom; complete with a towel warmer! (I've never even *seen* one before!). The furnishings were minimalistic but well presented and of good quality throughout the hotel. Flat-screen TV, free wifi and a phone with free local calls in the room too. Breakfast (the usual stuff: bread, jam, cheese, tomato, cucumber) left in the fridge both mornings.
The property was spotlessly clean and the staff was uber-friendly and helpful. In true Icelandic fashion, good quality comes at a high price, but I gotta say: It was worth it in this case, given all of the positives that this hotel offers. Had it had some handy amenities like a pool, restaurant, fitness room, etc.-etc., I would have rated it a 5/5, but that's life.
In any case, I'd gladly stay here again and recommend it to other travellers visiting Reykjavik who are looking for a fine, classy, downtown higher-end hotel.
