Built in 1900 and fully refurbished as recently as 2013, this stylish city-centre hotel enjoys a prime location in the historic Kirkjuvoli building, within a stone's throw of the city's parliament and Old Downtown Church.
Guests can enjoy light bites at the uber-trendy and utterly stylish Klaustur Bar. But the real reason to venture to this popular establishment is its superb drinks menu. The wine list is among the best in the city, and includes some varieties unique to Iceland. The whisky selection is also excellent as is the comprehensive gin & tonic menu, which pairs that classic combo with the likes of cucumber, grapefruit and mint and lime. Delicious!
The hotel's suites are simple yet striking in their design, and typically Icelandic. Large windows let in plenty of light, and views of the city surrounds, while mod-cons are showcased in everything from Samsung Smart TVs and complimentary WiFi to Nespresso Machines, pods included. Some suites even come with a private balcony – or in the case of the top-floor Valkyrie Suite, two large terraces – perfect for the long, warm days of summer. Suites also come with a well-equipped kitchenette, handy as there's no restaurant on site. But, if you don't feel like cooking,, there are plenty of restaurants close by.
Located in downtown Reykjavik, the hotel has one of the best locations for exploring Iceland's lively and vibrant capital. Situated minutes from the parliament building and all the restaurants and attractions of the downtown area, you'll never be short of things to do. And for further inspiration, look no further than the walking tour and landscape videos, made especially for guests ad found in each suite.
