    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 a central location."
    Ideal location within easy walking distance of restaurant, bars and shops. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was adequate. Limited choice and same every day. There was a jacuzzi bath in our standard room. The jets, however, seemed black and clogged so we did not use it. There was a large rain shower head. We could not get this to work. We had to use the hand held shower attachment. Clean towels were provided each day. Room was comfortable with pleasant decor. Good view of square from very large window.

    "Nice hotel close to Rejkavik airport"
    Although we were next to the airport we had no problems with noise. This hotel is on the outskirts of the city centre but the centre can easily be reached in 20 minutes walking and the hotel allows clients a free bus pass for the duration of your stay. Buses are approximately every half hour.

    "Beautiful Location, Comfy Hotel"
    Very pleased with the comfortable room. I arrived late after a long drive and it was a relief to have a warm shower and bed. The hotel was fairly quiet until people started moving around in the morning. The setting was lovely, with a small farm surrounding the place, a view of the water, and mountains rising beyond - I took my cup of coffee outside with me in the morning to admire it all. The staff was very helpful and arranged a whale-watching tour at the last-minute for me (which was a fantastic experience and I was lucky enough to see eleven humpbacks!). Only a short drive to charming Akureyri.

    "Good value hotel with good pool and location"
    A nice hotel located about 45 mins from Reykjavik - great for beating the crowds/coaches to the Golden Circle attractions. The hotel is a little dated in places but comfortable, warm and had good facilities like 2 huge hot tubs and massive outdoor heated pool. The hotel now seems to attract large school groups at times which can overwhelm the facilities and make it a bit noisy but on the whole it was great. The free WiFi was very slow when the hotel was full but fine at other times. Lovely free breakfast every day too.
