Hotel | A design hotel situated 1.8 km east of the centre, right next to the Laugardalur park. The art and colour scheme is unique in each room and matches the day of the Icelandic calendar that the room represents.
A hotel close to nature inspired by light
Reykjavík Lights is a newly built design hotel with modern rooms that are full of light. The interior is inspired by the ancient Icelandic calendar and the way in which light changes form on the island throughout the year.
The hotel has bicycles for rent so you can easily take yourself into the centre or explore the outskirts of the city. If you set your sights on the west and start pedalling, for example, you will soon end up at the largest and most architecturally exciting church in Iceland, Hallgrímskirkja. You will also find the Laguavegur shopping street nearby, with all of its many galleries, shops and cafés.
Or if you set your sights on the south instead, you will soon reach Perlan, with its observation deck atop hot water tanks. Or if you’re not a keen cyclist, you can also get around quite easily by car, bus or on foot.
If you feel like staying close to the hotel, we recommend a stroll through the Laugardalur park which is right next door. In this area you’ll find a botanical garden and the largest outdoor thermal pool in Iceland. The name Laugardalur means roughly "pool valley" and the water here was used by locals to wash their clothes all the way up until the 1930s.

Light and historic
The rooms at Reykjavík Lights are not particularly big, but they have everything you’ll need. If you do want a little more space, you can opt for a superior room. All of the rooms have parquet floors and light walls, and most have large windows as well. Each room takes inspiration from a different day in the Icelandic calendar. Both the art and accent colours in each room are related to the traditions and experiences associated with the very day or season that the room is dedicated to.
