Old Charm Reykjavik Apartments
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 October 2017 via mobile

We are a family of 5 and stayed here for 2 nights in October. The apartment is in a great location, really close to the centre of Reykjavík and is immaculately decorated and well equipped. I would definitely recommend for people visiting with families.

We recently stayed 4 nights at the Old Charm Apartments. We had a 2 bedroom apartment with a full kitchen, full bath and living area. It was in the best location; close to the main shopping area, a block from the ocean and within walking distance of the town centre and old harbour. There was a Bonus grocery store up a block and left about 4 blocks which had reasonably priced groceries. It made our trip so much more affordable being able to make our own meals and not live out of a hotel room. The beds were very comfortable although the bedrooms were a but small when it came to storing luggage. I would highly recommend these accommodations.

Our family of four stayed for three nights in a superior three bedroom apartment on Hverfisgata. The location was excellent for exploring Reykjavik. It was spotlessly clean and our friendly host provided excellent instructions for easily gaining entry when we arrived at 2am.

The main drawback, however, was the noise. The apartment is located on a busy street and between the traffic and groups of people that would frequently congregate late at night outside the cinema on the other side of the street we struggled to get a decent night's sleep. I don't expect to sleep in blissful silence as I do at home, but the constant disruptions during the critical midnight-6am time definitely detracted from our experience. Our problem was certainly compounded by the fact that we need to keep the windows open to cool the apartment, so noise may be less of a factor when the Reykjavik weather turns colder.

One other noteworthy item is that the apartment lacks a living or sitting area with a sofa. To be fair, the property never said they had one, but I assumed that a three bedroom apartment would also have some sitting area. As a family we typically unwind together after a day out and plan our next excursion. In this case we used one of the bedrooms though it wasn't ideal. This might not be a deal breaker for others. Just be aware that you are only getting bedrooms and a kitchen.

The apartment was lovely with 3 bedrooms and very centrally located. The owner was very accommodating and provided clear communication. She let us store our luggage in the main building while we went whale watching which was very helpful.
