The apartment was lovely, comfortable, well equipped and the service was good without intruding on our space. It was also so close to all the local amenities and sights and had free parking nearby. We would definitely stay again !

We spent our last night in Iceland here and it was perfect spot to see the old town and Harbour on foot. Highly recommended as a base in Reykjavik. We were able to get our key and had a follow up phone call to check on us. There was a very thorough information guide there for us. We did not have any further interaction with staff but did not need too as our stay went well.

We found our apartment immaculately clean and well appointed. A 5 minute walk to town but enough off the beaten track to be away from the Saturday night noise. Comfy bed, well equipped kitchenette and smart shower room. The cleaning lady was very helpful in storing our bags between check out and coach pick up. 10/10 all round

These are fantastic centrally located apartments for a couple. They are spotlessly clean and well equipped.Staying at Castle House apartments is a must !!!! The balcony overlooks the lake and as a smoker was so pleased to have an outside space to smoke in. The underfloor heated wet room is a very welcome bonus after cold days out !!. We could not recommend Castle House Apartments highly enough. Fabulous.

This apartment surpasses my expectations. It was very quiet, incredibly close to everything in Reykjavik, very clean, the staff was incredible. I felt like I was in a hotel but had the comfort and space of an apartment. I will absolutely stay here again. I highly recommend Castle House!

We were very happy when we walked into these apartments. They are spacious and spotless clean. There is no reception like a typical hotel - we received instructions prior to arrival and you call on an intercom and they buzz you in, where you find your keys in an envelope. There is a little notebook with all the information you need including a map, local shops, phone numbers, bus information, etc. The owners call you shortly after you've checked in to make sure you have everything you need. Wifi is free, the kitchen has instant coffee. There is housekeeping each day. Bathroom only had soap and a combo shampoo/shower gel, so BYO on the rest of it. There is a hairdryer. Bathroom also had a heated floor and heated towel rack. Location is excellent, right near Lake Tjörnin, and an easy walk to the city center. If you are going on a tour, buses will pick you up here, and so will the bus to the airport. Our room happened to have a view of the Lake from our living room. Not sure if all rooms would have a view. Only down sides (and if you could take off 1/2 dot, I would have given them 4-1/2 dots rather than 5) : 1) the hotel is in an old house which is not very noise proof. We were on the 1st floor and because floors are wood, every step the people above us took resonated loudly. We could also hear conversations. The walls were thin and the head of our bed was apparently next to the bathroom next door because we could hear not just conversation, but also handles turning for the shower faucet, toothbrushes tapping on the sink, and yes, even toilet use. Perhaps ask for an upstairs room so you will at least not have to deal with footsteps. 2) The curtains are not room darkening (see photo, taken at about midnight). They are room-dimming, but if you are at all sensitive to light when you sleep, it might not be enough so bring an eye mask.

Staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Extremely well located. Only 2 guest parking places for the complex, but also free street parking nearby. Some air traffic noise during the day and evening. Fine at night. Extremely large living area with 2 extra fold-out sofas. Small but functional kitchen and bathroom. No washing machine.
