    Historical Traveler Reviews Castle House Luxury Apartments Reykjavík

    Fantastic location


    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.

    Great Stay


    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.

    Very pleased


    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.

    Totally fab


    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.

    Perfect place to stay in Reykjavik!


    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.

    The one thing to keep in mind is that there isn't a reception desk, and that you have to call to have them meet you at the apartments, or make some kind of arrangement to meet them at a particular time. If you forget about that (like we did), you can always go to the Tourist Information Center in downtown Reykjavik, about a 10 minute walk away at most, and they can call for you.

    Highly recommended!

    Would recommend without reservation


    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 party of four, we booked two apartments, and two of us slept on the sofa-beds which were either immaculately cleaned or brand new, and were perfectly comfortable. Strangely, the cheaper of the two apartments was actually the nicer, although the other was still great.

    It isn't a hotel, so don't expect a reception desk and breakfast, but the staff who meet you on arrival are helpful, and even offer to get some shopping in advance for you. Can't fault the place, really, and will most definitely return to both Reykjavik and the hotel.

    Castle House is a must! Perfect!


    Hi everyone.

    My husband and I just got back from Iceland and staying at the Castle House Apartments made our stay absolutely perfect!

    Don't hesitate to stay there... We had a fun, romantic, and adventurous time together.

    When we first arrived, i was disoriented and did not realize that the location was magnificent.. then, as we walked out to explore, I quickly found out that the apartments are a block or so away from the best part of town.

    Basically, you will be walking distance from shops, restaurants, pubs, clubs, etc.. And you are still far enough away to be tucked away in a cozy part of town, just next to a church..

    On friday nite, we stayed out until very late and took a short walk home. Very nice! Also, the apartment itself has everything you'll need and the service is excellent..


    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.

    ... too good to be true, but I couldn't find any exclusions or red tape, no fine print. So so we used the economy rate +$20 option and went straight to the Valet lot. Got to the terminal in good time.

    Checked in at Icelandair and we were off to security with Nexus passes in hand so we could go straight to the front of the line, passing all those suckers without Nexus privileges for which we pay $50 for 5 years. But what's this? No one is in the security line! How could that ...

    We had booked the Grand Circle tour of Iceland so we were on our way walking to the bus station at 8:00 this morning. It wasn't raining which was a good sign.

    The bus tour took us first to a farm where they grow tomatoes and cucumbers. The interesting thing about this is that they grow these vegetables year round in greenhouses. The greenhouses are heated by water from hot springs that is piped to them. That water is ...

    ... heck is m/s?? Google says meters per second. That tells me absolutely nothing...why doesn't the rest of the world convert to our archaic American standards???? Best I can make out is it means around 45-52mph winds. We should be able to handle that, afterall, we experienced that out in the open seas. It might be better to be able to bob and weave though? I think most of our group has had all the bobbing and weaving they can handle! But just in case, the Coast Guard is nearby (see ...

    Reykjavik Day 2 - the Blue Lagoon

    We docked in Reykjavik overnight so we were free to leave the ship any time. Our trip to the Blue Lagoon was not part of an excursion so after stopping for coffee at the Cove Cafe we left the ship and took a taxi to the bus terminal where we caught the bus to the Blue Lagoon. The Lagoon is about 30 minutes from the city through barren moss covered lava fields. We were on one of the first buses to arrive at the lagoon which is large natural geothermal pool ...

    ... quietest downtown street I have ever seen/heard. Seriously, don’t the people here lose their cool ever? No road rage, no yelling, and definitely no cars honking the horn. I swear, not once did I hear someone honk their horn, even when traffic backed up!

    We had some time to burn so we walked about for a while. No hurry since we know we have all morning tomorrow to shop since we don’t leave for home till the afternoon. We all piled ...
