Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Marina Non Refundable
4 4 Star:
Per Person Per Night
Located in the up and coming downtown harbor district, the Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Marina is not just another hotel in Reykjavik. Instead, this hotel which opened in the spring of 2012 strives to deliver a more authentic Reykjavik experience, by synthesizing the city’s rich maritime history with its colourful, vibrant and modern present day culture. The Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Marina is probably the only hotel in the world where you can almost touch the huge vessels in the dry-dock, but the main entrance of the hotel is on the north side of the hotel.
Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Marina, which is just a stone’s throw from the capital’s attractions, is situated in a completely renovated four-story building that has become a landmark among local residents as it is located next to the historical, and still fully functioning, dry-dock called Slippur. With an emphasis on blending the dynamic, creative atmosphere of this rapidly developing district with the country’s strong fishing traditions, the Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Marina offers everyone the opportunity to see and experience the capital at its most creative and colourful.
Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Marina offers colourful and quirky design both inside and out. The lobby and other common areas are bright and whimsical, and feature colourful wallpaper, locally-sourced antiques and other fanciful odds and ends – bland and uniform it is not. But, the hotel also strives to be warm and inviting and features lots of comfortable, cozy seating and other private areas as well as a large fireplace.
Other amenities include a tour booking service at the front desk, a canteen (open 24 hours), a delicious and affordable menu and at Slippbarinn you have an extensive menu of wine and coktails. The hotel also features a small theater where you can watch Icelandic films (with English subtitles) a nd a nice gym so you can work off all the tasty Icelandic treats you’ll be eating.

Great stylish hotel. Clean and modern with lots of anterooms to relax in. Not the most attractive exterior but a wonderfully eclectic interior with fires burning and innovative design throughout. There was a great bar, cafe and restaurant. Breakfasts were delicious. We were 4 mature ladies who had left our husbands behind for the trip - and stayed in room 103 which had a huge double bunk bed in it. The staff were friendly and the bar staff didn't mind giving us ice to have in our room - we saved quite a lot of money by drinking duty free gin and tonics in our room before going out! It's expensive in Iceland! The hotel is in the very interesting old marina area where there are quite a few lovely fish restaurants to choose from. We dined at Kopar twice. The salted cod was divine as was the homemade sourdough bread served with butter flavoured with liquorice salt. Puddings were also gorgeous. 2 of our party dined in the hotel restaurant and said it was very good. We would definitely recommend this hotel. All the tour groups and bus transfers pick up from just outside the hotel and it only takes 15 mins to walk into town. Collapse

Such an amazing hotel situated right in old harbour. If you love character hotels this is the place. Very boutique like with lots of spots to sit and hangout. Close to many restaurants and just a short walk to more bars, restaurants and shopping. Plus you walk the waterfront trails all around Reykjavik. Collapse
Perfect hotel with a warm friendly welcome

Arrived in Iceland from Oslo. Checked in the morning of 9/30/16. Where to start? This hotel was the first and most disappointing experience during our entire trip. I’m glad that everything else we visited during the following week made us forget that first day so quickly. I would have never booked a room in this hotel but we had purchased a 7 day self drive tour package that included accommodations and this was one of the hotels reserved and paid for on our behalf by the tour operator. Actually, it was not but the tour operator switched hotels on us at the last minute because he thought the location was better. I wished he had not. I understand there’s a shortage of good hotels throughout the country as the exponential surge of tourism in particular from the US has outpaced the country’s ability to build new ones. However, this is Reykjavik, the capital city and therefore, plenty of better options. I read some of the reviews before writing my own. With titles such as “great hotel” and “hidden gems…” I wondered if we all stayed at the same hotel. I can better relate to the title another traveler wrote “better room in a prison, I think” I know with so many positive reviews the negative ones get automatically dismissed. I also believe if you got one of the superior rooms, studios, or suites, you may not understand my harsh comments. The photos on the website look good but my room is obviously not advertised because it may not officially exist in first place. I wish I could remember my room number. You enter the lobby of the Icelandair Marina hotel and you realize then there is no lobby. I have a déjà vu experience that took me back to the 70s when I hitchhiked all over Europe for a year. The Marina hotel has that youth hostel atmosphere I encountered so many times then. So, great if you are in your 20s and you only carry a backpack (although I doubt you could afford the cost of this hostel). I read descriptions by fellow travelers such as “Artsy” “funky”, “quirky”. I believe the décor in the imaginary lobby and common areas although creative is a clever way to make the traveler believe under the pretend everything is so cool one should appreciate the crap is going to get. I guess we can all rationalize. We walked into our shoe box with an expression of horror in our faces. One side of the bed was completely pushed against the wall so my wife and I flipped a coin to see who would crawl on the bed to reach that side. There was a useless hospital rolling table at the end of the bed that only got in the way no matter where we moved it. Let’s not forget the bathroom. The door was a single poorly painted sliding plywood sheet that was totally crooked. We could not fully close it all the way because the pipe lines running outside the wall would stop the door before hitting the wall. At least they could have sawn off two holes on the edge of the so called door to accommodate the pipes. I have been to gas station restrooms that looked more elegant. Thank God we spent only one night and we ended our trip in top class hotels like the Siglo hotel in Siglufjörður and the Silica hotel at the Blue Lagoon. ATTN: Management. Please do not post one of those scripted responses as there’s nothing you can possible say to justify to existence of such a room even for free. Collapse

One of my favourite hotels. Stayed here in September 2015 for four days with my family. Arriving from the States early morning, we were able to check in straight away and have a sleep in the extremely comfy beds. The interior of this hotel is so pleasant and unlike the anonymous/tasteless "hotel style" you find so many other places. A great mix of old and new, It's the only hotel I've stayed in where I've actually felt at home - and quite ready to move in permanently. the restaurant/ cocktailbar is great, especially their "Fish in a pan". the coffee bar / deli is super nice too. The hotel is a bit pricey though, if you don't get a good offer. When I last visited reykjavik, october 2016, I stayed in a different hotel to save money, but still visited reykjavik Marina for lunch in the restaurant and Collapse
