Where to stay in Reykjavik?

If you want to have everything around you, a hotel near the old city center of Reykjavik is definitely recommended. A central hotel is located near the Austurvöller square, the Laugavegur shopping street or near the Hallgrímskirkja. Here you have eateries, shops, museums, cafes and sights nearby. Furthermore, you are also near the starting point of many Iceland excursions, but it also remains lively in the center until late in the evening which makes for a lot of fun. Here you can enjoy the typical shopping street Laugavegur with its colored houses, nightlife and restaurants. Tip: To see if your hotel is centrally located, you can check Google Maps for the distance to the Magic Ice Bar Reykjavik. It is very centrally located in the city center and you prefer to be within a radius of 1.5 kilometers from this point, so you don't have to walk too much.

Reykjavik is a very safe city so you don't have to worry about the wrong neighborhoods for your Reykjavik hotel. Are you visiting Reykjavik with a car? Keep in mind that parts of the city center are car-free and that parking near the city center is expensive. Then choose a hotel with good private parking or go a little further from the city so that you can park for free. For example, the Laugardalur district is a quieter and greener place a bit further from the center. There is also a swimming pool, park and small zoo here where you can enjoy yourself. In general, the quality of the hotels in Reykjavik is fine, but the prices of hotels are significantly higher than in other European cities. Below our pick of the 8 best hotels in Reykjavik Iceland:
