Positive Reviews

As central as can be for Reykjavik.

Guests agreed that Room With A View Great has a fantastic location for Reykjavik; found right off the main shopping street, which is the hub for dining and nightlife, and just a short walk from the harbour, Hallgrimskirkja church and a supermarket for cooking ingredients.

Warm, well-equipped and comfortable.

The apartments were found to be warm, had comfortable beds, nice decor, and everything guests needed, including a well-equipped kitchen, which was very much appreciated.

Friendly, helpful staff, hot tub.

Those who stayed found the staff to be friendly and helpful, and while many guests seem to have missed it, there is a small hot tub on the rooftop terrace of the main building.

Negative Reviews

Despite name, some do not have the view.

Some guests were disappointed to find that despite the name, Room With A View apartments did not always have much of a view, whether due to low elevation or scaffolding that was present in mid-2015.

Lack of daily cleaning.

Apart from the changing of towels and removal of rubbish, a handful of guests were displeased to find that their rooms were not cleaned during their stay.

Weekend noise possible.

Be aware that due to the central location, there can be some noise from bars, nightclubs, and drunken revellers in the weekends, and a few guests also reported some construction noise. Therefore, earplugs are recommended but not everyone found it to be a problem, especially if they had had a full day exploring the city or hiking.
