... it would be here in winter. That's obviously the reason tourism is so quiet in the winter / colder months and many businesses simply close down during that period. In the outer regions, roads are impassable for long periods as well. When we first arrived in Iceland, our taxi driver suggested we have a meal at the Pearl Restaurant, so we made a booking. This is a landmark building in Reykjavik and it is unique as it comprises 5 enormous water tanks upon which sits a domed ...
... 90 minute break of the general life why I even like it so much more.
The players walk on to the pitch and the national anthems start to play. From that moment on blood will flow quicker through my body, my hands become moist and my legs start shaking. Complete and utter focus on a football and 90 minutes long of pure emotion and 22 players running after that ball. 90 minutes long I don't have to think about breakups, job searching, the future and what ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Castle House Luxury Apartments Reykjavík
The location of these apartments is brilliant. We stayed in a small studio apartment which was adequate in that it provided the basics:kitchenette, bathroom, tv and bed. However the bed itself was uncomfortable - very little room around it to get out of the bed. The "double" was two beds shoved together that kept drifting apart (the worse such experience I have come across). However the place was cleaned every day. Advice: don't spend much time in the apartment but use it as a base and take some excellent day trips with Allrahanda Iceland Excursions.
We stayed here for two nights in July 2005. We had two apartments next to each other. Each room was a studio with an ensuite bath. The double bed was actually a twin bed with a trundle underneath that pulled up and out to make a double bed. When the bed was open, there was not much room to walk around, but that was OK. There was a small galley kitchen, sofa and TV. We called from the airport and a staff member met us at the rooms with keys. They were very helpful in providing us a crib, linens for the crib and information about where to find a local playground. The apartments were about a two minute walk from the center of Reykjavik, GREAT location, right next to an art museum. Very quiet neighborhood. No breakfast provided and it is hard to find a breakfast place in Reykjavik, so it was good to have the kitchen. We would definitely stay here again.
We were very pleased with our stay at the Castle House and Embassy Luxury Apartments in Reykjavik, Iceland during July, 2005.
One always encounters problems of some sort in a rental unit. I judge organizations on the way they resolve problems. When we encountered one minor problem, the management handled the situation in the most professional way - they accepted respnsiblity for the problem; they were courteous; and they were quick to resolve the problem.
I highly commend them.

We stayed at Castle House Luxury Apartments on 18 th of july and this was the best holiday ever - the apartment, location, and the staff extreamly friendly. Thanks for us - we will come again - Shana
Great, clean and well appointed, helpful people.
Really enjoyed our stay at the appartment. It was clean and well appointed and we didn't want for anything. We had a late flight but were still met at the apartment at 1:30am and helped in with our luggage and our son was carried in in his pushchair up 2 flights of stairs.
Nice people and no complaints about the apartment at all.
This is a perfect base for exploring Reykjavik. The location couldn't be better. You are a 5-10 minute walk from downtown and the main shopping street, close to the main road, and immediately adjacent to the National Museum. Street parking is plentiful and free. The apartments themselves are clean, well-equipped and quiet. The coffeemaker is very much appreciated for those of us having jet lag, and the TV (not that you'll be watching a lot) includes a couple of American channels in case you can't live without CNBC. The price is certainly right, as well.
I am generally very critical of hotels / guesthouses, but this place is very difficult to find fault with. Located right in the middle of Reykjavik, the apartments are clean, comfortable and well-appointed. In a country where eating out is a little on the expensive side, it was wonderful to have a wide range of kitchen facilities to be able to keep shop-bought food fresh.
A great choice!
Castle House Luxury Apartments proved to be a great choice for us - situated right in the middle of the city (a few minutes from the city center) for easy access to everything. The apartment itself was immaculately clean, quiet, private and nicely furnished. We were in Iceland for a week and never quite adjusted to the time difference, so it was really nice to have our own place with a kitchen to accommodate our schedule. Much nicer than being in a hotel.
My very own Castle
I recently spent the weekend at Castle Apartments in Reykjavik and loved them. The apartments have everyting you need and more. Located less then 5mins away from the town, and more importantly the bars, you couldn't wish for a better location. Clean, warm and spacious. You'd be mad not to stay there.
