Blending the modern with the traditional, Reykjavik Residence Hotel's suites and apartments are nestled into two converted historic mansions in the heart of the city's downtown district.
The hotel's location is ideal for those wanting to explore the main streets and sites of the most northerly capital city in the world. It is a 10-minute stroll to Laugavegur Street -- Reykjavík's popular shopping district -- and the Hallgrímskirkja Church, as well as the old Reykjavík harbour area, which is also within easy walking distance. There are a number of bus stops nearby where you can access some of Iceland's most famous attractions -- such as the Golden Circle and the Blue Lagoon.
The "linens are crisp, service attentive and the light a glowing gold" at the Reykjavík Residence, according to Lonely Planet. Offering studio and 1- to 3-bedroom apartments -- all boasting free Wi-Fi, a fully equipped kitchenette with fridge, stove, microwave, and tea- and coffee-making equipment, a telephone, a flat-screen TV, a DVD player and an iPod docking station, with extra beds and cots available if required -- this aparthotel caters for both solo travellers and families alike.
There is also a 24-hour reception available from the hotel, where you can request daily maid service and laundry facilities (2- and 3-bedroom apartments have their own washer/dryer). A dedicated taxi service is also available from the hotel for trips outside the city.
