A city break in Reykjavik has something for everyone!

A week in Reykjavik is a fantastic option for people who are overwhelmed by the idea of having to change their accommodation every night and, having to drive and follow directions every day. The Icelandic capital is very lively and offers a multitude of cultural offerings for visitors as well as a wide selection of quality establishments to stay in at night. During the day, a number of exciting excursions to Iceland’s southern coast are possible; while at night, you can soak in one of Reykjavík’s many hot tubs or explore the trendy bar and restaurant scene. The choice is yours!

Your accomodation during your Reykjavik Getaway

Take your pick: hotels, mountain huts, campsites…

Hostel

If you have a backpacker’s soul, a small budget, or are travelling to Iceland alone, this may be a good option for you.

Guesthouse

Whether they are someone’s actual home or an establishment more like a cosy and simple inn, Reykjavik guesthouses most often offer the best access to downtown.

3 Star Hotel

Three star hotels are often in the middle of downtown areas. When they are not, they are about ten minutes away by taxi or bus. The accommodations are simple but many offer possible upgrades and triple rooms if travelling as a family.

4 Star Hotel

Since extravagance and 5 star hotels are hard to come by in Iceland, these are the most deluxe options for your stay. The downtown hotels are comfortable, centrally located and reasonably spacious. They have quality restaurants and excellent efficient service.

Appartment

If you chose to do this Iceland travel with your family or in a group of friends, you can rent apartments in Reykjavik by the day or by the week.
