Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Marina Non Refundable
4 4 Star:
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.

Fantastic breakfast. Amazing breakfast. Rooms good and very clean. Great location with great views of the harbour. The views facing into town slightly exaggerated in their claims. Staff were very approachable. The whole place gas a great vibe.

Gorgeous hotel unlike any I've seen. The decor is beautiful, cozy and quirky with much to look at throughout. Room was spotless and functional. We had two single beds and a mini fridge with an amazing view of the marina. We asked for a kettle when we checked in as I'm a coffee drinker (bring your own instant). There are two grocery stores within walking distance as well as most everything else you'd like to do in Reykjavik. Great location!!! Would definitely return. Collapse

So not expect happy crappy customer service from the Icelandic people it isn’t in their vocabulary. To say tourism is 90% of their income it is the most obnoxious plane I’ve visited. The hotel is beautiful upon arrival, staff however abrupt (spoke to 5 different staff members all the same) Rooms unless you have a suite are small and lack of privacy is an issue at toilet time ha ha! No space to hang or store clothes if longer than 3 day stay. Breakfast extortionate but so is everywhere else. The only good thing is the warm fire and the happy hour. Beautiful country but would not return Collapse

Really cool place, well decorated, quirky, clean and comfortable. Breakfast really good also. We walked straight into old town within a few minutes. A few reviewers have mentioned the frosted glass bathroom in room - guess it's down to your taste and expectations, my wife and I didn't have a problem with it but I guess it could upset you if quirky isn't your thing. We've stayed in a few 'posh-tels' / Smart Hotels over the years which have a similar vibe (Generator, Clink, some new YHAs back in England) and I'd definitely say the decor and vibe (but not the price!) has that young cool vibe - Hilton it is not. Saw the Northern Lights from the adjacent harbour on our night in town and we were lucky to get a better display than our previous nights out in the country. If the forecast is good for activity and cloud cover you can definitely get great views in Reykjavik - a hotel without access to the waterfront with more buildings around wouldn't have been nearly as good for NL viewing.

This hotel is ideally located at the marina, great views over the marina and mountains beyond. It is a short walk to the shops and restaurants Reykjavik has to offer. Also this hotel has tour pickups from right outside whereas quite a lot of other hotels in the city centre do not, their guests have to make their way to local bus stops which if it is raining can be quite an ordeal. The hotel itself has many areas to peacefully relax, it has a restaurant and bar which are well staffed and friendly. Our room was on the fourth floor overlooking the marina, it was very modern and well presented, very Ikea to be honest. our only gripe was the sliding glass door and wall on the washroom, basically due to the location of the toilet you could see everything through the frosted glass when lying in bed so not exactly private, we discovered that there are numerous private toilets on the ground floor "jazz area" so if you need to drop your friends off in peace then that's where to go. The room was equipped with large Tv, fridge and free to use safe box. There was no kettle, however reception were more than happy to provide one within minutes of asking at no extra charge. The bed was very comfortable, the room is central heated with a radiator which you can adjust and there is some kind of aircon vent ensuring nice fresh air. Our room also had a balcony too. You can also choose to not have your room cleaned every day, basically hang a tag on your door and forfeit the cleaning for the following day, you get rewarded with a voucher off at the restaurant. We also had breakfast which is a buffet setup, great selection offering all types of breakfast from corn flakes to cakes, I highly recommend the porridge. The hotel has a small gym and a small cinema, we unfortunately didn't make use of these but did have a nosey and they both looked great. All in all this is one of best hotels I have stayed in, great design, certainly effort has been made to make it a place to enjoy rather than just a place to stay. Great staff and location. Collapse
