Where are the best places to stay in Reykjavik? Does the accommodation in Reykjavik suit people of all budgets? What are the unique qualities of hotels in Reykjavik? Continue reading for our Top 12 Hotels in Reykjavik.

A wealth of hotels, hostels, and guesthouses have sprung up across the country to meet the ever-growing demand. There is now such a wide range of options that the choice can be a little overwhelming. That's why we put together a list of the top hotels in Iceland. Following is a list of the best hotels in downtown Reykjavik, the area called Midborg, near all restaurants and souvenir shops:

12. Kvosin Downtown Hotel

With large, opulent rooms packed with amenities and a location in the heart of the downtown area, there are few places more appealing to the Reykjavik traveler than the Kvosin Downtown Hotel. There are few hotels as central as the Kvosin Downtown Apartments. Reykjavik’s City Hall, the Parliament building and Austurvollur square, and the main shopping street of Laugavegur can all be ambled to in mere minutes.

The Kvosin Downtown Hotel rooms are among the largest of any Reykjavik hotel and are perhaps better described as suites. They boast kitchenettes, en suite bathrooms, televisions, luxurious beds, and many amenities such as free Wifi and daily housekeeping. Most also boast a patio or balcony.

With beautiful rooms, a unique atmosphere, and a central location, those seeking to self-cater in the heart of Reykjavik will find no better choice than the Kvosin Downtown Hotel. 

11. Hotel Holt

Hotel Holt is a boutique, stylish hotel in a cultural corner of Reykjavik, perfect for travelers seeking comfort and luxury. A mainstay in downtown Reykjavik for decades, it's perfect for those looking for a classic hotel that exudes the city's character. Its large neon sign at the top of the building can be seen from far away and is a notable part of the downtown view on dark nights.

Hotel Holt is located on a quiet street in the residential neighborhood of Thingholt, but is still very close to the center of Reykjavik. As such, it is great for those who want to both be near the city’s action and still get a quiet night’s rest. There are 42 boutique rooms at Hotel Holt, ranging from single rooms for solo travelers to suites for up to three. The decor is a significant part of the hotel’s appeal. The owners are proud art collectors, making the space as much of a gallery as an accommodation.

Travelers who want to stay somewhere overflowing with luxury and culture will find their stay at Hotel Holt.

10. Reykjavik Lights Hotel

The Reykjavík Lights Hotel is probably the most unique, being visibly styled after Icelandic history and nature. It blends modern lighting techniques with a chic style to reflect the aurora borealis and midnight sun that make the country spectacular. However, the rooms speak of Iceland’s past, with each one themed after a day in the country’s old calendar.

The hotel is located just at the edge of the city center, offering easy access to Reykjavik's nightlife, shops, restaurants, and museums - but also some quiet and calm during the day. With its awesome view of the mountains and a perfect location close to the city center, Reykjavik Lights Hotel offers all the comforts of home in a unique city atmosphere.

8. Hotel Borg

Hotel Borg, which opened in 1930, has a grand, historic charm unmatched by any other city accommodation. Though it sits on the same square as Iceland's Parliament Building and Cathedral, it is still the most imposing building in sight. It has retained its art deco design since it was opened and is the first choice to stay for any foreign dignitaries visiting Iceland.

Veel Gestelde Vragen

Wat is de beste wijk voor een verblijf in Reykjavik?

Als je Reykjavik voor de eerste keer bezoekt, raden we je aan om in het centrum te verblijven. Het compacte formaat maakt het gemakkelijk om het centrum te voet te verkennen en je vindt hier natuurlijk ook de beste restaurants, bars, winkels en hotels, voornamelijk rond de hoofstraat, Laugavegur. In het centrum kun je ook meerdere plaatselijke bezienswaardigheden vinden zoals de Harpa-concertzaal, het Sun Voyager standbeeld met Vikingthema, en de iconische Hallgrimskirkja-kerk.

Waar kan ik het beste verblijven in IJsland?

De beste plaats voor een verblijf in IJsland is de hoofdstad, Reykjavik. Het is maar 45 minuten rijden van Keflavik International Airport en is de beste plek om de kunst en cultuur evenals het IJslandse nachtleven te verkennen. Vanuit je hotel in Reykjavik kun je een excursie maken naar de Golden Circle, een roadtrip over de Zuidkust, of een epische excursie over de Ringweg.

Waar in IJsland kan ik het beste verblijven om het noorderlicht te zien?

Hoe verder je weg bent van lichtvervuiling, hoe beter je het noorderlicht kunt zien wanneer het verschijnt. Het grootste deel van IJsland biedt de juiste omstandigheden en zelfs de hoofdstad, Reykjavik, ligt vlakbij enkele afgelegen plaatsen. Als je in de stad verblijft, ga dan een paar kilometer bij het centrum vandaan naar Grotta op het puntje van het schiereiland Seltjarnarnes om het aurora goed te kunnen zien. Je kunt ook de Oskjuhlid beklimmen, vlakbij Perlan, voor een mooi uitzicht over de hoofdstad. Een verblijf in Reykjavik geeft je ook toegang tot de noorderlichtexcursies die noorderlichtjagers meenemen de zee op en het platteland in.

Hoe kom ik van de internationale luchthaven naar mijn accommodatie in Reykjavik?

Keflavik International Airport ligt op 45 minuten rijden van de hoofdstad van IJsland. Je kunt gebruik maken van de luchthavenshuttle die je naar je hotel in Reykjavik brengt. Dit is de goedkoopste optie, maar de reis duurt ongeveer 1.5 uur omdat de bus onderweg meerdere keren stopt voordat je bij je hotel bent in het centrum. Je kunt ook een taxi nemen of je kunt je huurauto ophalen zodra je in IJsland aankomt.

Wanneer moet ik mijn hotel in Reykjavik boeken voor de beste prijs?

Of je nou in de winter of in de zomer komt, wij raden altijd aan om je accommodatie in Reykjavik van tevoren te boeken. De beste plaatsen om tegen een redelijke prijs te overnachten kunnen snel volgeboekt raken. Sommige hotels zijn al een jaar van tevoren volgeboekt.

Welk soort accommodatie in Reykjavik is het meest geschikt voor een familie of groep vrienden?

Als je naar IJsland komt met een familie of groep vrienden, zijn familiekamers in hotels of appartementen de handigste optie. Als het je niet uitmaakt of je in het centrum van Reykjavik verblijft, kun je een huisje overwegen in de buurt van de hoofdstad. Dit geeft je volledige onafhankelijkheid en geeft je de mogelijkheid om tijd door te brengen in de prachtige natuur.

Kan ik een goedkoop hotel in Reykjavik boeken voor een reiziger met een kleiner budget?

Natuurlijk! Reykjavik is een levendige stad die veel verschillende soorten accommodatie biedt die passen bij jouw behoeftes en budget. Als je op zoek bent naar goedkopere opties in het centrum, kijk dan naar het aanbod aan hostels met slaapzalen of pensions met eenvoudige voorzieningen. Als je voor een lage prijs een eigen kamer met een badkamer wilt, kun je ook een goed aanbod vinden in hotels die iets verder buiten het centrum van Reykjavik liggen. Als je geen specifieke datums hebt voor je verblijf, overweeg dan om buiten het hoogseizoen naar IJsland te komen, dan zijn de prijzen lager.
