    Before we arrived there was a leak in our apartment - we were notified well in advance and told that alternative accommodation would be arranged. Any boy was it! We were placed in Apartment K at no extra charge. I'd looked at this place before but it was a little bit put of budget. Seriously beautifully stylish room that everyone should stay in. I didn't want to leave!

    It was pretty much perfect. Except for one thing - the alarm clock had fallen underneath the bed before we arrived. Set for 4am in the morning. Perhaps a hilariously funny prank from the previous occupants?!

    We had a wonderful one-night stay. We arrived late after missing an email asking for our arrival time, but we called Snorri and he arrived quickly and cheerfully to let us in. The location could not have been better. The apartment was clean and nicely furnished.

    The central apartments are located at the heart of Reykjavik nightlife and town centre. As there is no public transport to speak of in reykjavik, being close to the bars/shops/town centre was paramount. Although most of Icelands beauty lies outside Reykjavik, it is an excellent city to base your day trips from, and central apartments is an excellent option. We stayed in a budget studio apartment which was quite small. It had a double bed, basic kitchen facilities and small bathroom. I saw the standard apartments while they were cleaning them, and while I'm not sure of the price difference, it would probably be worth it as they look ten times more spacious and comfortable, with the same apartment facilities. Another bonus is 2 supermarkets to choose from within a 2 minute walk - one of them is 24 hrs. The bottleshop with limited hrs is also right round the corner.

    If you are Staying On a friday/saturday night and do not plan on partying, definitely do not stay here if you can't sleep through noise. The apartments provided ear plugs and these helped somewhat. Also take note -the tap water/shower water had a strong sulphur smell but perfectly safe.

    The owners were very welcoming and very easy to arrange things with on arrivals and very accommodating about what time we left. Nothing was too much trouble.

    Right in the heart of the City, easy walk of no more than 5 mins from all the major tourist attractions. Like a home from home

    The double studio apartment was superb..clean, spacious and had everything we needed. With the price of eating out in Reykjavik being so high, having our own kitchenette meant we could make our own meals.If you have the luggage space I'd recommend taking the essentials with you! Will save alot of money that way!

    The only downside is the noise. You are right on a bustling street. Friday and Saturday night was interesting as there seems to be the city's premier nightspot over the road, which was banging out loud music until 6am. The ear pugs provided didn't really work for me! The noise seems to travel through the buildings quite easily. You may get annoyed by the noise but the quality of the apartment makes up for that!

    This is a great place. We reserved one of the smaller rooms, but we were upgraded to a larger room at no extra cost (so actually we didn't stay in the Budget Studio). The location is great––right in the middle of one of the main squares in Reykjavík––and the apartment was clean, tastefully decorated, and really well-equipped. There is no front desk staff, but there are a number of hotels across the street, and if you want to have the Flybus or something drop you off over there it's no problem at all. We loved this place––free Internet, full kitchen, great location, great view, and a really fun stay.

    This is now my second time at the Central Apartments and while there booked my third for this coming summer. I have found no better place to stay in Reykjavik which combines comfort/ relaxation and customer independance.

    It was a very high quality accomodation for a private apartment, at a reasonable price.

    An unforseen problem is that there is no phone in the apartment, and since there is no reception desk, communication can be a problem if your mobile phone is not active in Iceland (especially people from America). Many things in Iceland are arranged over the phone, like pick up for the airport or tours.

    The rooms are ehough spacious and neat. We were saticified with all the facilities there.

    During my travels, got an email that re-directed us to the Rey Apartments due to some undisclosed problems at Central Apartment. Very nice room and would be a good place to spend several days.

    However, never was able to get on the advertised internet. Also, the drain in the shower was mostly plugged leading to some flooding in the room.

    This is one of the best, if not the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The owner is great, rooms are spacious, well decorated, and clean. You can cook your meals in the room, and the room comes with a cell phone! I highly recommend Central Appartments to anyone coming to Iceland.
