Wonderfull service
All good
Gaston, ie1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Great little apartments. Kitchen was small, but suited our needs as we really only did small meals there. The only issue I had with the property was that our window faced into a very narrow alley of sorts that didn’t allow for air flow. The room was very warm. They did provide a fan that made it a little better. Other than that it was great.

Good 6.0
Very small and basic room- great location!
Tiny studio with hardly any room to move. Bed wasn’t comfortable due to having only one very soft pillow each and only one chair to share in the room. Also quite noisy on a busy road. Location is great though and the room was nice and clean and easy to access.

Slightly above average, but not 100% awesome.
Space adequate for up to 2 "average-sized" adults. I say this because if you are any larger than average, the shower will probably be uncomfortable. Pros: Clean and modern accommodations. Close walk to waterfront, bus stop 7, and the 24/7 store, 10-11 - though things in downtown Reykjavik are not far to walk to. Comfy bed, mini fridge, microwave, toaster, electric kettle, dishware, and utensils are provided. Cons: Although it was stated there is not 24/7 reception/concierge services, there was not a single moment in which reception was available during my stay - even when I knocked at 10:00 AM (which seems like a standard time people would be working). This is inconvenient for a place called a "hotel," because check-out time is 11:00 AM and I did not have to board a departing bus out of Reykjavik until 1:30 PM. I had to drag my suitcase and carry-on luggage all over the downtown instead of being able to request reception hold onto my baggage. Stayed 2 nights and housekeeping did not make my bed or wash my dishes (2 mugs + 1 spoon) after my first night - all they did was take out the trash.

Great studio apartment in good location
The apartment itself is lovely. Clean and well maintained. The service we experienced was very good as well. The apartment is well located - and easy to walk to most places. I would definitely recommend Island Apartments. Only one small "but" - if you are a light sleeper, pack earplugs as there is noise from the road, and fellow guests are not always very considerate. These comments do not detracted from the fact that we did have a lovely stay - I just think it is important that people are aware of it.

Fantastic apartment and perfect location
Amazing stay at Island Apartments, check in was easy, apartment was clean and spacious and the location was just perfect for exploring Reykjavik. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend or stay again. Thanks!

Great place to stay in Reykjavik
We had only 24 hours in Reykjavik and just wanted a reasonably priced comfortable place to stay while exploring the city. That's a tall order in a place as expensive as Iceland but this studio fit the bill. It was clean, had comfortable beds, and was convenient to everything we wanted to see. I'll stay here again if I come back for a longer visit.

Island Apartments was beautiful and all that we required. The room wasn’t massive but it was nice a cosy. Everything was spotless and clean. It was minutes from the city and the nearest bus stop
