Castle House & Embassy Luxury Apartments

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The unit was spacious, clean, and quiet. Very comfortable.

We stayed in apartment 70 at the Embassy Luxury Apartments. Three bedrooms, one bath. Communication before, during, and after the say was outstanding. We never saw anyone from the property, and never needed to. The location was a short walk (uphill) from bus stop #1 at City Hall, which made tours very easy to take. There was a small amount of late-night noise, but nothing outrageous. A grocery store and ATM were just a couple blocks away on a square that anchored the west end of the nightlife. Dominos delivered. And most importantly in the summer, the black-out shades worked beautifully.

Loved the security door and the closeness to downtown. Didnt like having to pay for street parking. Hard to remember ti run out in tge morning and feed the meter.

Everything was great except for the host. She seemed irritated and very unhelpful since we booked. Arrived and needed to get into building as it was locked. Called host and told her we were here, she buzzed us in and hung up without a word. Found key in an envelope. No note, no welcome, no explanation. Hand held phone was dead, couldn’t make calls.Terrible host, unhelpful and unfriendly.

Excellent downtown location. Well-equipped kitchen.

We came to Iceland to see the sites and do the marathon. All expectations were beyond met!!

We were happy to be there. The care taker helped us with the luggage and also made us feel comfortible.

This property is within walking distance of the information center, main street and Reykjavik attractions. The bus stop is literally a block away, very convenient if you book tours. The room is very spacious, clean and the kitchenette has everything you need including a mini dish washer. The room gets clean every day. The only issue it’s that the shower has only half a door, so when you take a shower some of the water goes to the the rest of the bathroom floor. They clean the bathroom everyday, so when you come back the floor is dry and clean. I’ll stay there again if I go back to Reykjavik.

Located in the center of town Walking distance to everything

There are 2 locations, I was very please with apt #110 in the Embassy Luxury Apartments location Very nice big 1 bedroom apartment, separate living room plenty of closets, full kitchen with dishwasher and everything. I felt like home. Very good location near the lake. In November the lake is freeze over so you can walk across it ( we made sure to ask the local just make sure it is safe to do so ;) ) Short walking distance to restaurants shops ... We did not cook there but I like the floor plan I think if you cook the kitchen smell won't get to your bedroom and the foyer or living room If I ever go back to Reykjavik I will try to stay at the same place

Freya was always very responsive via email to any & all questions. Apartment very comfortable and well appointed & maintained. Fantastic location by The Pond and City Hall, a 5—10 walk to anywhere.

Checking in worked out well, and as I arrived at 9:00 am, they held my luggage and moved it to my room when it was available. Therefore, I could enjoy my entire day without worrying about it. The apartment had everything I could need and was very comfortable and clean. Would stay here again in a heart beat!

After trekking tour, this pristine, well-appointed apartment was delightful and very convenient for stroll to numerous restaurants, museums and shops. Very quiet and restful. No staff on site, but they call after your arrival and are promptly available by in-house phone.
