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.

Good base in Reykjavik but not a luxury hotel.

Overview: The Icelandair Marina Hotel is nice, simple hotel in downtown Reykjavik which is in a good location and has reasonably good facilities. Some of the décors is a little over done (road sign theme and the hope of being ‘fun’ taken to the extreme), but the fabric of the building and the furnishings are all well kept and comfortable. There are nice bars, eateries and lounges, colourful with nice tweedy fabrics which give a great cosy yet fresh feel. There is a small gym in the ‘boiler room’ that includes a small climbing wall and a cinema room (which we did not experience on this trip). Location: The location of the Icelandair Marina Hotel is really very good. If you have not visited Reykjavik before this is a good base and in easy walking distance of the downtown bars, restaurants and shops. There is a small parking area next to the hotel by the harbour (not affiliated with the hotel) or two parking lots (Pay and display – free on Sundays) about a block from the hotel on the coastal road. Check-in: Check in is very casual. The reception staff were attentive and efficient. There are no doorman or bell boys, so you have to take your own luggage except a brief nod in the direction of the stairs/lifts your left to your own devices. Not really a problem unless like us you have arrived from a touring trip laden with baggage. We checked in at 2 pm, and both rooms were ready. We checked out at 4:45 am, and there were two other parties in front of us to check out. There was no express check-out option (that we were aware of), and this did drag a little. We were not asked about our stay, and this part of the experience felt more like a Premier Inn / Travelodge than a good hotel. Cost: We paid £204.00 (GBP) per night inc taxes for an attic room with double bed. Free wifi was included and very good speed for a complimentary service. Attic Room: We booked and stayed in the Attic Rooms which have a double bed, a balcony and a good view over the harbour. The bed was comfortable enough, but without the comfort and luxurious feeling, you get in top notch hotels. The double bed has two single duvets which are common in Iceland and a nice local feature. The reading lamps are design led, and functional making space feel scandi-chic! The attic room also includes a small desk under the TV, a stool and a tub chair, a long mirror and a very small and badly positioned luggage shelf. There is also a bookcase with some useful guides. There are European plug sockets and USB ports handily placed. The TV has some useful features however slightly complicated to navigate, and the remote was faulty in one room. The bathroom was simple and very small but ok. The bathroom was very clean (as was the rest of the room). The L'Occitane products were a nice touch, and there were plenty of towels provided. The hair dryer in the bathroom was also very good. We were only in this hotel for one night, and the room was fine but unless you are really just using it to sleep in it would be far too small for a longer stay. I would recommend looking at the other, larger, room types. Stay: For one night the attic room was fine. The noise was an issue with some other guests banging down the corridor at around 2 am (the rooms are obviously not very well sound proofed), but for us, it was not a huge problem. Otherwise, it was clean and comfortable and reasonably good value. The free wifi is great and the public areas had a good atmosphere. Collapse

My husband and I traveled to Reykjavik for a short getaway. we had booked a room for Thursday night knowing that we were arriving at 6am Friday so we could get right into our room without a problem. We attempted to call the day before to let them know what our arrival time would be but could not get through. We did send an email also, which they received too late. They gave our room away because we had not checked in on the date the room was reserved. They apologized for the miscommunication and even upgraded our room at the same price. The staff couldn't have been more pleasant. So, if you will be arriving at an off time be sure to notify them in advance. This hotel was great- small parking lot if you are renting a car, which we did, but had no problem parking each night. There is a cafe in the hotel with coffee and breakfast, as well as a restaurant, gym, and study/library, and a cinema room. Overall, it was a great stay. Within walking distance to bars and restaurants, and not too far from downtown. Collapse

My first tile in Iceland and could not be happier to have found this place. The perfect mix of designy, homey and cool. Completely full service and the best location in the city for getting around. They even arranged all our tours for us. One small problem was that our bathroom, although clean and modern, had a glass sliding door which was kind of strange. Would still stay there again though!

My husband and I stayed last week/weekend and can't say enough about the place. Central enough to have easy access to everything but slightly out of the hustle & bustle and with great views. The hotel has so many interesting and homey touches like the cinema, cozy nooks for reading or hanging out and a wonderful bar. Collapse

Stayed here over a 5 day holiday to see Iceland - helpful staff, great food and great interior design. Room was very comfortable with a great view of the harbor.
