To meet growing demand for accommodations in Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital city, Icelandair Hotels recently opened its newest hotel, Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Marina. This hotel represents a significant strategic investment on behalf of Icelandair Hotels, Iceland’s largest hotel chain and also part of the Icelandair Group. According to Hildur Ómarsdóttir, Sales and Marketing Manager for Icelandair Hotels, “This new hotel is further evidence that Iceland’s economic recovery is in full swing and that Iceland has truly become a top destination for tourists. The economics are simple, we built this hotel to meet demand.”
Situated in a completely renovated four-story building, Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Marina is located in the up-and-coming harbour district of downtown. The 108-room hotel is centrally located for all the capital’s attractions with a backdrop of the majestic Mount Esja and the beautiful Faxafloi Bay.

The hotel features a fun and quirky canteen called, Slipp Canteen (open 24 hrs), and the Slipp Cafe, which serves sit down breakfasts in the morning and double as a coffee bar the rest of the day.
