Great location - be aware of early checkout and parking

First the good stuff: a fantastic location within easy walking distance of pretty much everything you would want to see in central Reykjavik, only two blocks from the main shopping/entertainment street. We were in a "family studio" and the apartment was roomy, with a couch, a TV, a dining table, a double bed that can be separated into two singles. The kitchen had the basics - a half-sized refrigerator, a microwave, a stove top with two burners (no oven), an electric kettle, a coffee maker, and a toaster. The bathroom was small, but fine. The bad stuff: This property offers free parking. While this is true, be aware that there are only FOUR (4) parking spaces for the whole building! Just four! Fortunately, were were there in a slow period and didn't have too much trouble, but one night we did park on the street. Street parking is free, but I can imagine it might be tough to find a spot. And you will most likely want a car since there is so much to see around Reykjavik. Also, be aware of the early checkout time. In the policies it is listed as 10am, so at least we should have known. But I didn't realize until I was in Reykjavik that it was so early. On the day we were to leave Reykjavik the weather was horrible, with hurricane force winds. Our flight was late in the day, so we had nowhere to go after check out. We had to sit in our car because it was too dangerous to drive. I had inquired about the possibility of a late check out, but the answer I received was that it was not possible. Again, it's my fault for not paying closer attention to the policy at booking, but I think 10am is much earlier than you would expect pretty much anywhere. I think 11am would be more reasonable, and 12pm would be perfect. All of the interaction with the staff was via email. They will send you a code and directions on how to get in. If you aren't independently minded or prefer to have direct contact with staff onsite, this may not be the place for you - it is not a hotel. Overall, I would stay here again, and I would recommend it to a friend as well. But I would caution them about the early check out and the extremely limited parking.

Conveniently Located

I had a very pleasant stay at welcome apartments. It is quite which is a very good thing when you are trying to sleep. Very conveniently located. Two blocks from main shopping street. Grocery store is close. The only real downfall was the small shower which was almost on top of the toilet and the wifi wasn't that great. Maybe it was just my room. You can make free local calls in the lobby which is good for booking day tours and such. I would recommend this hotel apartment!

Great weekend trip

I stayed at the apartments with my sister for 5 nights and we had a great time- the location was perfect and the room was very spacious and well equipped. It was exactly what we wanted! Staff rating is non applicable as we had no contact with staff during our stay (which wasn't a negative or bad thing, just can't rate it!)

total DIY

The rooms are very nice, and the location is great... BUT. There is no lift so be prepared to carry your heavy luggage up stairs. The desk guy is rarely there, and you usually have to self check in and don't expect him to help you with anything.

Welcome Apartments Reykjavik: Perfect location, great value...

Nice big room, lots of light through double windows that open for a cool breeze, futon sofa, nicely appointed kitchen, 2 twin beds with comfy duvets, perfect location for all city sights and front door pick up for tours, friendly maids. Magical and amazing country and very comfortable "home" at at the Welcome Apartments, Vatnsstígur 11, apartment #302. Will be back very soon!

Great city spot

We had a great room with comfortable twin beds, fluffy comforters and a kitchenette perfect for cooking a small meal before hitting the downtown bar scene. You are two blocks from all the fun and a grocery store a few blocks away. We had free parking and it was easy to find. Highly recommend!

Good value, Good location

This apartment is well located and we found it easy to check in even though it was after 11pm by the time we arrived. Cooking facilities were very limited (hob and microwave) but otherwise the apartment was fine, and very good value for money. The sulphur smell from the shower takes some getting used to, but it goes away once the shower stops.
