Great location, great (large!!) room, super comfortable bed and helpful friendly staff. Definitely recommend. Kitchenette with coffee maker, mini fridge and hot plate an added bonus as restaurants are very expensive!

Booked two nights here after extending my stay in Reykjavik (thanks Snowstorm Stella!). After informing Debrah (sp?) in reception that a dripping faucet in my spacious studio-style room was keeping me awake, she kindly upgraded me to a fabulous penthouse with views for days! Amenities and finishes were pristine and the location is truly exceptional; just steps from all the...

Spent 4 nights in room 503,a budget studio with shower room in the hallway. Took us 15 minutes to walk a simple route from BSI bus station through pretty residential streets to a warm welcome at this hotel. Shower room was a wet room about 6 steps from our room door, closer than my bathroom at home. Very clean with...

Pros: amazing location - close to restaurants, shops, and attractions; in the heart of Reykjavik; nice, clean apartments that were decently furnished; nice view (we were on the 5th floor). The front desk staff was helpful and delightful. The wi-fi worked well. Cons: as others have said, there is street noise, although it was faint, and it didn't keep us...

After nine days of constant travel in Iceland, we landed at Room with a View in Reykjavik. We had reserved the second nicest penthouse suite they had and it was worth the price. Excellent accomodations! View from the room was OUTSTANDING! Close enough to everything in Reykjavik in just a slight walk. Lots of options for local food and bev....

We stayed in 310, on a Saturday night. Even with ear plugs, the room wasn't built to dampen the noise from the main street. It was awful and really disappointing. Reykjavik is a party town on Saturday nights and it goes on until 4:30 am. That being said, the room itself was super clean. Within the building and between the...

Me and my husband visited Iceland as part of our honeymoon. We stayed here one night out of 5. The room was nice enough and the kitchen facilities etc, however some of the decor outside of the room was a little bit dated. This doesn't really effect you're stay but just something to note if you like modern and up...

Staff was so accommodating!! They checked us in early which was the best thing they could have done for us! After an overnight flight with toddlers and a 2 hour ride to the city due to a traffic accident the staff gave us a room which was a 3br when we had only requested a 2br. Rooms were so beautiful!...

This place is fabulous. One glitch- the very rude and inexperienced receptionist that doesn't know how to deliver customer service. We were late with checking out due to little boy tummy ache and jet lag. She literally came to the room and harassed us telling us 'she doesn't care' about us she just wants us out. We are heading out...

Everything was wonderful, staff very friendly. 24h reception. The apartments are nicely decorated, would just maybe need renovation. And of course it was very loud on weekends, but if you want to be as central as possible, thats expected.;)

“The name ROOM WITH A VIEW is not really appropriate, as the only view you will see from your room is the streets, and the roof tops.”
