Hotel | Radisson Blu 1919 Hotel is a modern hotel housed in an historic building and situated in an excellent location in the heart of central Reykjavik. The hotel is trendy and characterised by its uniformly stylish furnishing and relaxed atmosphere.

A classic hotel in an historical building
Radisson Blu 1919 Hotel is housed in a listed building from the year 1919. The building was originally home to the first shipping company in the country, Eimskipafélag Íslands, and the stunning edifice undoubtedly impressed visitors back then when they came in for business meetings. Even today the hotel is primarily popular among business travellers and it exudes a classic hotel feeling.

The hotel’s restaurant is the perfect place to load up on energy before and after your adventures each day. The hotel takes breakfast very seriously and offers a large buffet with both warm and cold elements – usually a big hit with guests. Later in the day they roll out a cake buffet, which is also well worth a taste. You can naturally also enjoy dinner in the restaurant – or order food to your room if you prefer.

The hotel is in a central location and close to many attractions. Within a radius of one kilometre you’ll find the National Museum, Hallgrímskirkja Church, the Laugavegur shopping area and something as odd as a world-famous hot dog kiosk, Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur. The city’s sculpture and waterfront promenade are also close by – perfect for a leisurely stroll or a brisk jog.

”Hotellet låg nära till allt och servicen var bra. Det enda negativa var att juniorsviten låg direkt under ventilationssystemet vilket gjorde att vi hörde ett konstant dånande ljud. Men man vande sig. ”

”Har inget att klaga på, på detta hotell. Det låg centralt för oss upptäckte vi efter vi bokat. Nära både julbordet och Hard Rock Café, som vi bestämt innan, att vi skulle äta middag på en av kvällarna. Trevlig och hjälpsam personal. God lite enklare frukost, som hade det mesta. Mysiga rum. Kan verkligen rekommenderas,”
