Hotel | The hotel is located in the heart of Reykjavík, close to almost everything the city has to offer. The building’s past as a pharmacy is reflected in the decor whilst offering modern comfort of the highest level.
Enjoy a luxurious stay in an historic landmark
Apotek Hotel is unlike any other – housed in a listed building that was designed by architect Gudjon Samuelsson in 1917, the same mastermind behind the spectacular Hallgrimskirkja Church. Both buildings are true landmarks in the city.
This historic building was once home to Reykjavík’s old pharmacy, but today it offers guests a modern and luxurious place to kick back and relax. Despite its modern refresh, the hotel’s history is ever present in the form of high ceilings and large windows, and a classic decor that boasts herringbone parquet floors and brick imitation tiles in the bathroom. This classic and historic style is particularly palpable in the tower suite – a hotel room across three (!) floors with panoramic views over the city of Reykjavík. If you hadn’t already considered getting married in Iceland, this suite might just convince you to do so.
The restaurant Apotek Kitchen + Bar is a fantastic space with modern decor that playfully captures the building’s history as a pharmacy. The menu boasts a mix of Icelandic and European dishes which are designed to be shared and enjoyed by everyone around the table. Even the bar plays with the pharmacy theme – will you be having something anodyne this evening, or something sedative, perhaps?
