    Pocket Guide: Iceland

    Iceland is a country that turns the world on its head. Frozen landscapes battle fiery volcanoes, the sun rises at midnight and an ancient Viking heritage splices with contemporary Nordic design to create a destination like no other. Head to the capital Reykjavik and soak up Iceland’s vibrant nightlife and music scene, or just explore the country’s array of contemporary museums, bars and cafes. The more adventurous might want to discover the breathtaking trails and glacial mountains of Vatnajokull National Park. Whatever you do, you’ll find something to take your breath away when you book a hotel on this unique, secluded island.

    Areas & Neighbourhoods: Where to Stay in Iceland

    Reykjavik — Backed by snow-capped mountains, book a hotel in the picturesque harbour city of Reykjavik: Iceland’s capital. Discover numerous world-class art galleries and museums, such as the National Museum of Iceland. The city is also renowned for its nightlife, and many of its daytime cafes step up a gear or two to transform into buzzing bars in the evening.

    Vatnajokull National Park — Vatnajokull National Park offers over 8,500 square miles of breathtaking mountain peaks, uninterrupted forests, glaciers, freshwater lakes, hiking trails and ice caves. Just be sure to plan your visit in advance, as the weather can be unpredictable, particularly in the highland areas and during winter months.

    Akureyri — The so-called ‘northern capital’ of Iceland, Akureyri may be small but it certainly packs a punch. Host to over three dozen annual events and festivals, covering everything from snowboarding to medieval crafts, book a hotel in this traditional fishing port that is also famous for its fabulous seafood restaurants.

    Blue Lagoon — Situated 30 miles south of Reykjavík, the Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland’s most iconic and famous sites. Geothermal vents heat the water here to delicious temperatures, and minerals from deep inside the Earth colour it a striking electric blue. Take a dip in the steaming lagoon and you’ll come away feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

    Things to See with a Hotel in Iceland

    It is the natural majesty of this sub-Arctic nation which really has people coming in their droves. From the contrasting sapphire waters and lush green forests of the Blue Lagoon, to whale watching tours from the northern town of Husavik, this is not the time to forget your camera! The tour de force is undoubtedly the Aurora Borealis. Best seen in the winter, Iceland is one of the most accessible destinations to witness the sun’s cosmic rays colliding with Earth’s magnetic field to create this heart stopping display of atmospheric light.

    Things to Do with an Iceland Hotel

    Beyond the natural wonders of this unique nation, Iceland’s many small towns offer a unique taste of local life. That said, due to its accessibility and size, the capital Reykjavik perhaps draws the most visitors. See it at a leisurely pace with a City Sightseeing hop-on, hop-off bus tour, pausing to see the sights or to check out the futuristic window displays in the shops. If you’re a TV buff, why not book a tour of the Game of Thrones filming locations? Taking you beyond the city limits, you will find these tremendous landscapes even more impressive in real life.

    "Nice hotel in the downtown area"
    We stayed at this hotel for 5 days. Great location! Check in was easy, free wifi, and the hotel had a gym. Bathroom had heated floors! There was only one instance where hotel staff was a bit rude. We were hungry and their room service had ended. We asked if they know of any restaurants open and/or recommendations (it was 10:30pm) and she gave attitude asking "you want ME to call every restaurant to see if they're open?" That wasn't what we asked but we didn't bother to argue and just searched on our own. The gentlemen in the morning however were helpful in making sure we got picked up for our tours and called companies on our behalf. Breakfast wasn't the best, maybe because the type of breakfast was Scandinavian influenced, which I never had before, but nonetheless I ate it everyday. Our room had a king size bed, desk, tv, and a bathroom with heated floors! The light fixtures were pretty as well. The room felt a bit small with our luggage laying around, maybe a queen bed would've sufficed, but no big deal. Overall, pleasant experience and would definitely recommend this hotel.

    We booked a Hilton so we knew what we would begetting but there was not so much choice for food as expected and the bar staff in particular were rude or at the least dis-interested despite trying to interact with them

    "where to stay in Iceland"
    The hotel was fine, but it was on the outskirts of town. The rental car company's office was supposed to be a shuttle bus away from the terminal, but turned out to be further than where the shuttle bus dropped you office. It was dark, and dragging luggage around the airport parking lot was terrible. By the time we reached the car rental office; and although there were 4 employees working, 50 people were waiting for their cars, the line was not movinh, and people in line were sitting on the floor asleep. After an hour of that, we dragged our luggage back across the black, dark parking lot and got a cab to take us for an hour long, expensive ride to our hotel. We never got a car. All other car rental offices were empty as those passengers were able to get through their line quickly and easily. I would recommend staying in the heart of Rekyavik at a hotel that has shuttle service and from there on, take tours or walk to local sites of interest. I wasted money on a car I never got

    "Good location, but tour group hotel"
    Great location and friendly staff but hotel feels like a tour group-style hotel (super basic, serving large groups who do their damage on the hotel vs personalized, warm/welcoming experience). Breakfast is definitely lacking (quality) and is in a conference / meeting room. Carpets in the hallways smell a bit moldy and are in serious need of cleaning. Rooms are fine...very basic essentials and no safe. If on a budget and only need essentials, it's a good place to pick.
