          We stayed at Welcome Apartments for 4 nights. One night for the outward journey to NYC and three nights on the way back. We loved the mattress on the beds, very luxurious, but there are differences between the apartments. The first night we had an amazing large room with a couch and a small table and chairs etc. The other three nights on our way back we liked our apartment as well but then we had only a (bigger) table and chairs, but no couch. Nevertheless, it's a nice apartment with everything you need. The location is excellent, just a few steps from the main street and the sea. We didn't get new towels when we stayed there for three nights so we called the owner (for free) (You can call for free to phone numbers of Iceland) The owner is very friendly and funny. After a few minutes he brought us the new towels himself. So the service is excellent! . Furthermore the use of computer (for free) with internet access and printer was very useful. Welcome Apartment has everything you need for a great stay in Reykjavik.

          We stayed in Apartment 103 at the Vatnsstigur 11 location. The apartment was clean, spacious, and included everything we needed for our stay, even free wifi and a plug converter for electronics. The viewpoint overlooking the bay and old harbor is only a 1 minute walk, and the main shopping street Laugavegur is also only a 1 minute walk in the opposite direction. The location is great - it is extremely close to everything and easy to walk around, and it is also on a quiet side street so we had no trouble with noise or crowds. We also loved having a kitchenette to save money on food, because restaurants in Reykjavik are pricey. I would definitely return to Welcome Apartments if we visit Iceland again, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice place in a great downtown location.

          The bathroom is very small and can only accommodate 1 person at a time, but it was clean and well-equipped so we didn't mind the size too much. The only minor issue to be aware of before booking is that many of the day-tour / excursion companies don't pick up from Welcome Apartments because it's kind of a small street, so you'll have to meet your bus or van somewhere else. This is really easy once you see where the main street Laugavegur is though - we just asked to be picked up at one of the hotels on Laugavegur (like Room With a View or Hotel Fron), both of which are less than 5 minutes walk from Welcome Apartments.

          It was in a seeded area. The website pictures were deciving. Not enough towels and I asked for more and did not get any. No microwave. No working radiators in two rooms. Did not like the drop off area and then had to walk to #100.

          the hotel is near all the main attractions in reykjavik and 15 min walk from the central bus station (bsi) we liked the quitness.

          Really close to the city center, but luckily the apartments in Vatnstigur 11 are in a quiet area. Free parking behind the building was also convenient.

          Tiny and old fashioned bath room.

          Excellent location,good space for two or three people,all necessary kitchenware etc there,use of computer with internet access and printer very useful for checking in on line

          The Staff was extremely helpful and accomodating. The room was very clean and large. Well kept room with good facilities for cooking and comfortable. Very good value for the money and very pleasant stay. Close to the main shopping street. Recommend highly.

          The only warning is that if you book it you need to recieve an email with the check-in codes so make sure you book with enough time to get the email. I booked late sunday night (maybe around midnight) and got an email with the codes monday morning at the airport. Luckily I had a blackberry and was able to get the email.

          The very best location in town! The apartment was very nice, with good beds and furniture. Light rooms ( always light in Iceland !!) But dark curtains were available! Minimilized ( in a good way) northern type decoration and furniture. On the whole however we were satisfied. Free internet was nice. If we would be back in Reykjavik we would not hesitate to stay there again.

          Equipment was OK though a small knife, a bread knife and a teapot would make living more convenient. Bathroom very small. The interior fittings were nice however somewhat slovenly down and not really finished off. Just a few hours more work and it would be so much nicer! We lived on second floor Tysgata and it is not to be recommended for older/ disabled/ weak persons with a lot of luggage - stairs are very steep and rather narrow .

        • Older travelers
          9.0

          Very good location near the shopping streets, but at the same time a very quiet place. Clear self-service instructions on the wall (hotel has no reception personnel). Clean and spacious room, a little sterile, but very well equipped with E.G. all sorts of kitchen apparatus. Comfortable beds. Well working wireless internet connection included in the price.

          Some kind of breakfast facility would have been good. Of course in this kind of apartment with all the kitchen apparatus (toaster, fridge, etc) it is not a must.

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          Fantastic location, large apartments, modern furniture (super comfortable beds!), very good value, quiet

          Wi-fi wasn't very strong / fast, tv very limited, bathroom needs updating - but none of these are particularly negative or serious.

          Reservation confirmation and all info. said that hotel staff was available until 4 PM each day, but there was never anyone at the desk. Would've been helpful to have someone on staff there when you advertised.

          there were no hangers in the room so i could not hang any of my clothes
