Where to Stay in Downtown Reykjavik

Landscape view of downtown Reykjavik

If you’re planning a trip to Iceland, you’re almost certainly planning to stay in downtown Reykjavik. Iceland isn’t a big country, and much of it is relatively empty, so most of the best hotels and apartments are in downtown Reykjavik. We have four different apartments available in downtown Reykjavik and we’d like to tell you a little more about each one to help you decide which is right for your needs.

One-Bedroom Apartment in the Old Town

If you always prefer to stay in the quieter part of any city you visit, then you will probably like our one-bedroom apartment in Reykjavik’s Old Town district. This apartment is ideal if you like to be close enough to walk to all of the best places but not right in the most rowdy area. The apartment comes with all of the amenities and luxuries you might expect, such as a fully functional kitchen (with coffee machine!), luxurious bathroom, free Wi-Fi, etc. The apartment also has a sofa-bed, which makes it perfect for families who like to be able to relax for a few hours before bed.

The Old Town district is beautiful, with lots of historical sites to explore. If you like to visit all of the most historically significant places when you visit a city, then staying in Old Town puts you close to most of these locations.

Studio Apartment if Downtown Reykjavik

If you’d rather be a little closer to the action, then you might prefer our studio apartment in downtown Reykjavik. This apartment is ideal for couples who want to stay in downtown Reykjavik, but not quite in the busiest streets. As with all of our apartments, there is a fully fitted kitchen and other home comforts. Just a short walk from a couple of beautiful parks and The Settlement Exhibition, this studio apartment is perfect for visitors who like to be close enough to everything to just get out in the morning and walk between the different attractions.

Two-Bedroom Apartment Right in the City Centre

If you’re part of a larger group and you want to be right in the heart of the city, then our two-bedroom apartment in Reykjavik might be the perfect option for you. This apartment has all of the features you can expect from any of our properties, and it has a king-sized bed, a queen-sized bed, and a sofa bed, making it perfect for parties of 5-6 people. Whether you’re a big family or a group of friends going on a trip together, this apartment is the perfect way to stay in Iceland’s capital in style and luxury. Given its central location, guests will find that most of the city’s biggest attractions and best restaurants are just a short walk away.

Deluxe Two-Bedroom Apartment on Main Street

You can’t get a more central location than our deluxe two-bedroom apartment. Situated right at the top of Reykjavik’s main street, Laugavegur, this apartment is as luxurious as any you’re likely to find. It has all of the facilities you need to make your own little home away from home and there are two king-sized beds and two sofa-beds, so it can sleep up to eight people very comfortably! This is the perfect option for a larger family or group of friends who want to stay together but don’t want to compromise on luxury. The best part of this deluxe apartment is that it has extra sound insulation, so you get all of the peace and quiet of staying somewhere outside of the centre, but you’re right in the heart of the city, just a short walk from all of the best restaurants, bars, museums, and attractions!
