We stayed at the hotel last week and we loved it. It couldn't have been at a better location, close to everything. Rooms are spacious and they do offer nice views. Staff is friendly, they had upgraded our apartment in a large two bedroom and it was a nice surprise. I would recommend this property if you are staying in the downtown area of Reykjavik.

A VERY INTERESTING HOTEL...THE FRONT DESK PERSON OLIWIA WAS OUTSTANDING

The location is awesome. The smoking deck was appreciated and well used. The coffees were magnificent!

Location was excellent. Room was to small no closet/ drawers space .

Just a great location and the perfect room/location (we just got a very simple/small room) for our first night landing in Reykjavik. Lots of great restaurants and bars within a block, plus some great stores (we spent a ton at 66-North......). People at the hotel were super friendly and helpful as well. Great start to our trip before we headed out to do some nature.

This property is in the perfect location. The rooms are nice and updated. I would recommend and stay at Room with a View again.

Highly recommend. staff are all polite n respectfully

Property was great but in a super noisy area- we were up all night both nights as our window was right above a bar that is very rowdy all night. In fact the second night - we listened to people party until 5 in the morning. Then the staff allowed someone to check into their room at 7 am right next to us and they proceeded to play rap music loudly. Not the best place for a rest that’s for sure. Staff also seems very tired of dealing with tourists in general which is hard when you are a tourist ....

The views were breathtaking which really added to the overall experience of my trip. The staff was super helpful and extremely accommodating.

The external bathroom is a big inconvenience to say the least. The staff was very condescending when indicating that it was because we had a BUDGET studio. But I showed the email confirming I had the only internal bathroom, then she said she changed me because that one was too small since we had a child with us. Mind you, this is why I wanted the internal bathroom. The room is nice, the kitchenette is adequate. The bathroom shower gel and conditioner were not properly stocked. Sound proofing was lacking. I was woken up several times by people on the street just having a good time, and by doors closing. Overall though, it's a nice place to stay. Great location, very good otherwise, bed relatively comfortable and curtains block the lights. We only went there to sleep and refresh.

Location is great. Staff was helpful and friendly.

Staff was very knowledgeable, and even told us about some smaller hot springs

The room was very spacious with a convenient kitchen. The staff was friendly and there was a full sized closet. The only thing I wasn’t excited about is that our “view” was an alley.

Advantage: it is right on downtown and walking distance to all sites. They cleaned our room daily, rarity for aparthotel. Disadvantages: they have no onsite parking only on streets. They apparently have more than 1 building and the one we were placed at had ongoing construction with boarded doors and window and a nonworking elevator, not helpful when u are on the 4th floor with large luggages. Rooms were small, we had to use living room for our luggages, mold are all Over including bath tub. No washer/ drier.

The location is centrally located, but this positive aspect is offset by the negative aspect of how loud it is at night. We slept with white noise apps on two phones with the windows shut, but still could hardly get any sleep on Thursday or Friday night. Earlier in the week, the bar next door was not too bad. The bed was not very supportive either. Between the bed & the noise, we were sleep deprived. The room does have a convenient kitchenette. It was all fairly basic, but it met our needs. If we were able to sleep at night, I would recommend the hotel. We usually do well with a bit of white noise, but in this case the white noise could not offset the bass & sound of people partying next door.

Me and my husband stayed here for just one day. In general, we were very pleased with this hotel. We were upgraded right away, the location is perfect, the place is beautiful. The only issue was the street noise at night.

Great location and price - under renovation but good place to stay bc of room size.
