The Swan House
Reviewed 10 December 2017

The Swan Hotel is conveniently located within a 10 min walk to Hallgrímskirkja and most areas within downtown Reykjavik. We stayed on the top floor (I think it was the 4th floor) with a high ceiling. The room was well-equipped with a small kitchenette for light cooking and housekeeping did a great job keeping the room clean. The bed was super comfy and the cable TV with Netflix (though you need to sign in with your own account) was a plus. A point to note- the hotel only provides shower gel, so you might want to bring along your own shampoo and conditioner. Overall, awesome stay, we will be back given the chance!

Beautifully designed, didn't want to leave! Great location just off the main street, easy walking distance to the main city attractions. Safe and quiet. Staff on reception 24 /7. Well equipped kitchenette, even with ground coffee and a cafetiere, very thoughtful. Bed very comfy, warm down duvet. Would love to return.

We booked the “budget” room at the Swan House, after a last minute decision to stay in Reykjavik an extra day. That was perfect - we were surprised at how a budget room was actually pretty spacious and the bathrooms bigger than other places we stayed here. The staff was also super friendly and helpful. The location was perfect - a 2 min walk from the main road. Highly recommend!

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in February 2017. It was in a great location but away from the hustle and bustle of the main street. The staff were lovely. Room was very clean and the freshly ground coffee was a great touch! We didn't really cook in the apartment as we preferred to eat out and try the cuisine however we did buy some groceries and had breakfast in.The bathroom was also very nice and very clean. Would highly recommend this hotel/apartments to anyone staying in Reykjavik.
