Positive Reviews

Location as central as could be for Reykjavik.

Guests found the location of Apotek Hotel to be outstanding, since it is found in the heart of downtown Reykjavik and people mentioned a wide range of bars, restaurants and shopping opportunities. In particular, the Harpa concert hall and the Reykjavik old town were mentioned as being close by.

Hotel with elegant design and plenty of comfort.

This hotel was thought to have plenty of character, with guests considering its design and decor to be very elegant and tasteful. On top of this, reviews mentioned comfortable beds, clean facilities, and bathrooms with excellent rainfall showers and plenty of hot water.

Lovely staff, outstanding meals in restaurant.

The staff here was thought to be amiable, helpful with arranging tours or with giving local information, and provided good room service. On that note, the meals at the connected restaurant were found to be of a very high standard across all services, and all guests who dined there were very impressed with the quality and taste.

Negative Reviews

Be aware of nighttime street noise.

Apotek Hotel guests sometimes mentioned that some noise is possible, especially at night and into the early hours thanks to bar goers and club hoppers below. While this was generally not thought to be terribly loud, you should think about taking earplugs if you happen to be a light sleeper.

A little small for some, limited storage.

A small number of guests thought that their lodgings were a little smaller than they should have been, and a few guests were also disappointed that there seemed to be nowhere to store clothes.
