Hotels in Reykjavik are surprisingly numerous for such a small city. It’s not just hotels either, as the fastest growing accommodation sector here is trendy, design-led hostels that combine cost-effective dorms with stylish options for private rooms. Iceland’s luxury sector remains a slow-burner, but a Marriott Edition hotel – positioned next to the eye-catching harbour-side Harpa concert hall is the city's first five star hotel.

The bulk of hotels in Reykjavik are found in a central pocket, set either side of the main shopping street, Laugavegur, and north of Lake Tjornin.

All hotels here have the postcode of ‘Reykjavik 101’, hence the name of the 101 Hotel (Hverfisgata 10). Arguably Reykjavik’s best luxury hotel, it’s a sexy affair characterised by monochrome colours and impish bas-reliefs, and is the place where Kim Kardashian and Kanye West stayed when they visited Iceland.

If you’re a sucker for Art Deco, consider the venerable Hotel Borg (Posthusstraeti 11) – inside of which the first Icelandic branch of Jamie’s Italian opened in spring 2017.

Light sleepers should be aware that Bankastræti and Austurstræti are hubs for late-night bars, so can be noisy.

The eastern fringe of downtown – especially the streets just north of Hallgrimskirkja cathedral, Reykjavik’s omnipresent landmark, and extending into the 105 postcode – is quieter, and stacked with mid-range hotels. It’s a good place to be: only a 20-minute walk from the main action, but slightly more affordable.
