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.

My wife and I spent 4 nights at this hotel. The location is excellent being alongside the working shipyard ( no noise) and our room had a great view over the shipyard to snow and glacier covered mountains. The staff were extremely friendly and the hotel had a good coffee shop/ deli at one end and a nice bar/ restaurant at the other. There is no getting away from the fact that food and drink prices in Iceland, and all Scandi countries in fact, are exhorbitant however you just adjust your intake accordingly. The hotel is within reasonable walking distance of all Reykjaviks tourist attractions and it is an easy city to find your way around. The hotel is surrounded by restaurants, mainly seafood, so it is possible to explore and enjoy the unique Icelandic cuisine. Most tours pick up and drop off at a stop at front of hotel so that is a big plus. My tip would be to pay for a sea view room on the 3 rd or 4 th floors. Great breakfast buffet also. The room was spacious even if the bathroom/ toilet was enclosed by opaque glass doors, not very soundproof however this was a minor distraction and one we got used to. All in all I recommend this hotel as a special place to stay in Reykjavik owing to its great location and service delivery by a very efficient and pleasant staff. Collapse

Standard rooms are small, bathrooms really small, but somehow it all works. Lots of off-beat decor, great cafe and restaurant; we did not bother with the rather expensive hot buffet breakfast. Try to get a room on the marina side, as there is a little road noise on the street side. You can walk to at least two really fine restaurants in the marina, and a great tapas place about 10 minutes away. Don't surprised if there is a gigantic ship in dry dock right outside the front door; it's part of the charm! I recommend this place. Collapse

As others have noted, this hotel is well located for exploring Reykjavik on foot. Quirky, funky, small but efficient rooms and friendly staff. The interior design has a Scandinavian/industrial theme that offers a nod to the building's earlier incarnation as a factory. We opted to include breakfast in our room rate and were treated to a well stocked buffet with lots of choice. We ate in the restaurant one evening and enjoyed the well prepared food and attentive service. The menu choice is limited. The bar has a great atmosphere and seems to be a popular spot for Friday night fun. Even by comparison to other European capitals Reykjavik is, for good reasons, expensive. If you are going I would suggest you avoid making price comparisons and just enjoy your visit. Collapse

We stayed four nights in April and had a great experience. Upon arrival we had to wait to check in and I noticed a screen on the wall advertising breakfast and other offers. As our room didn't include breakfast I decided to enquire about special offers to pre book. The receptionist was not that forthcoming until I mentioned the offers I had seen on the screen and then she explained we could upgrade to a superior room. We were given keys to see the potential room and also our original room and chose the upgrade. The standard rooms are fresh and modern, but they are very small. Not a huge issue if it's just a base but we loved the superior room, it had a view of the marina, was bigger and had an awesome shower. The upgrade cost c£550 pound or so, not cheap, but included breakfast and social hour every night from 6pm in a private lounge which included free beer and wine along with bread, pesto, crisps and olives. When we added up what we would have spent on breakfast and a few drinks, bearing in mind the prices in Iceland, it didn't seem so bad....we liked the new room.... plus we met some lovely people at social hour! Breakfast was fine, a good selection with a couple of hot items, the Skyr was particularly lovely! Yes it's not like an English hotel buffet with beans etc, but we didn't expect it to be and quite enjoyed it. On the last day we booked a takeaway option for our early flight. The hotel design is really cool and it's nice to sit down in all the different areas. The location was great for exploring the city too and the views of the Marina are great. The team at the hotel were a mixed bunch, one lady at breakfast was particularly helpful whilst sometimes I found the reception staff a little unfriendly, but always polite. They left little Easter eggs on our doors on Easter Sunday which was a nice touch. Overall I would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay again. Just one tip, allow plenty of time for the airport check in if travelling at peak or busy times. We flew on a Bank Holiday, allowed normal time but it was chaos. We only just made boarding and then the flight was delayed due to people being stuck in the chaos of baggage drop!!! Collapse
Small, clean room and helpful staff.

The Icelandair Marina is located next to downtown Reykjavik. I stayed there for several nights while interviewing for a job in the city in May, 2014. (I can't choose that date below, unfortunately.) Having now lived in the city for almost three years, I have a newfound appreciation for its location, right next to the Old Harbor and a few blocks away from the city center and Iceland's seat of government. The room was small and minimalist, but it was clean and comfortable. Be sure to check out the Slippbarinn bar downstairs, which is a nice place for cocktails. Collapse
