We embrace local living and chic design in the heart of Reykjavik

Located in the heart of the old town of Reykjavik, our guests enjoy being a part of an authentic, living neighbourhood, yet only a stone throw from the busy city centre. A sincere welcome, fresh inspiration and yet spirit of home is conceived thru our design where the mixture of quaint and effective, minimalist yet classy design is crafted within The Swan House. Only a block from the Reykjavik high street, our apartment hotel is right in the heart of Reykjavik’s vibrant culture, restaurant and nightlife quarter. Live like a local, tasting the expansive variety of restaurants and cafés, while cultural venues and city landmarks unfold as you walk, discover and become part of old Reykjavik. Welcome to The Swan House, we look forward to seeing you.

  • Perfect location! We were lucky enough to choose the Swan House for our stay in Reykjavik. We knew nothing about the layout of the city but Swan House is located directly in the middle near restaurants, shops, etc In addition, our apartment was lovely. Modern, clean, spacious and with a fully-equipped kitchen. Restaurants are quite expensive in Reykjavik so we were happy to be able to prepare our own breakfast each morning before heading out on our tours. And the young staff was wonderful.

  • Fantastic apartment hotel in great location Stayed here at the end of November and can't rate this place highly enough. What a fantastic apartment hotel in the center of Reykjavik. We've stayed at quite a few apartment hotels in the area but this one is a new favourite! This place has obviously gone through a refurb and it looks stylish yet cozy. The apartments are finished to a high standard with beautiful wooden floors and lovely furniture. Its simple yet modern decor is easy on the eyes and luxurious. Highly recommend The Swan House, Reykjavik Residence!

  • Wonderful Studio with Style Booked the top floor studio with roof deck & entire wall of windows... superb. Thoroughly enjoyed this apartment stay versus a hotel. Had very comfortable bedding (down), couch and dining room area. Simple & modern design - apartment nicely appointed with quality materials, wood flooring, lux tiles, appliances. Overall a great apartment for groups of people travelling - used dining area for evening drinks and cards!

  • Amazing stay in a stylish environment! We spent four nights in Reykjavík Apartments, and it was amazing! Excellent location in downtown, nice neighbourhood with all the shops and restaurants nearby, just a corner away from he ocean. After exploring the city or a long hiking trip it is perfect to return to - the room was cosy, modern and stylish, and it even has cooking facility. Perfect for couples, friends, and also for business trips. The rooms have excellent wifi. I can only recommend it! 🙂

The Design

Spirit of a home

“The creative vision for the Swan House concept and apartments is rooted in the industrial history of the location and its neighbourhood. The soul, style and decor is a reflection of simplicity and a friendly atmosphere. A sincere welcome is conceived with the spirit of a home in the hotel apartments as the living spaces are simple yet warm, colourful yet calming, with pure materials and refined elegance. The aesthetic sense is to create a harmony for people and please the eye so travellers passing can rest and enjoy their stay.”
