My boyfriend and I LOVE going to 5 star hotel/resorts when we travel. This was the first Apartment like place we have stayed and it was PHENOMENAL! Just the right amount of privacy, with a "hotel-like" feel. We love to enjoy cigars when we travel and a lot of the hotels don't have balconies because of the weather. The Black Pearl Presidential Suite had a wonderful balcony and we were even able to enjoy the northern lights one night on the balcony. The place is MAGICAL!
I stayed for 3 nights at the Black Pearl in Reykjavik. The check-in process was very easy. The woman at the front desk was very cordial and helpful. She showed me to my room and showed me how the high-tech buttons worked. There is a touch-screen system for controlling the lights and heat, with different mood settings and time-of-day settings.
The apartment itself was spotless and spacious. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The kitchen had all the appliances, cutlery and plates that we could need. The marble floors were pristine and a really great touch - they were also heated.
The bathroom was large and comfortable. The shower had great water pressure. The bathrobes were also comfortable, though the slippers were a bit too small for my feet.
The location of the Black Pearl is perfect. It’s right downtown. It’s close enough to the bars but not right on top of them, so it’s not too noisy at night. There are many great fancy and budget restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. The discount grocery store is a bit further away but there are two grocery stores close by, if you don’t mind paying a bit extra.
The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful throughout my stay. I will definitely stay there again and I highly recommend it to anyone who is considering affordable luxury in Reykjavik.
The Black Pearl was found on trip advisor from the great reviews. The hotel apartment lived up to every good thing that was said it. Centrally located to everything-ideal for visiting the sights, restaurants, harbor, and enjoying being in the city-so manageable; modern and well appointed one bedroom apartment, fully equipped including modern appliances, fabulous in-suite breakfast we recommend; and the most helpful concierge service ever. The staff went beyond our expectations to make our stay memorable. We loved the Black Pearl and will return.
We had a terrific stay previously at the Black Pearl in a Standard Suite and decided to return again and this time stayed in the Deluxe Suite with 2 bedrooms.
The apartment was nice and spacious. The large living room, fully stocked kitchen, 2 bedrooms and large bathroom with washer and dryer (though we didn't use them during the stay) made the apartment a great place to stay.
The personnel at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. About the only negative was a mysterious beeping sound that went off in our apartment a number of times including during the middle of the night that took the staff a few days to figure out and resolve.
Overall though, we had a great stay and would not hesitate to return again.
Spotless clean, very convenient location, very well furnished, full of technology, fully equiped kitchen with modern appliances. Garage for your rented car, especially in winter is a great advantage. I don't want to forget the wines and other drinks in the refrigerator which is a plus in a country where markets don't sell any kind of alcohol.
24h reception and useful advices and wheater survey for tourists.
Is a place we loved
