In the heart of Reykjavík’s harbour, the Icelandair Marina prides itself on offering guests an experience that is at once unique, exuberant, and luxurious. With parts of the hotel located in a former residence of shipbuilder Daniel Thorsteinsson, the building’s entirety prevails as a tribute to the sea: rooms are well-appointed with old relics from the harbour, painted in hues of blue and green, and life rings are strung to dramatic, harbour-view balconies.
Icelandair Marina’s modern, quirky design parallels its award-winning gourmet dining area, where guests can enjoy a meal amid poppy flower wallpaper in a warm-lit dining room conjuring the sense of a cosy, family gathering. Engage your higher faculties in the adjacent social lounge featuring a storied bookshelf, L-shaped leather couches and rustic, wooden tables, or head upwards along the gym’s climbing wall.
Grab a nightcap at Slippbarinn, the red-themed fireside bar and lounge, while immersing into a soundscape of live local jazz. For the adventurous, 220 hidden messages are to be found throughout this distinctive hotel of exceptional comfort and style.
