    5.0-star Hotel Class
    The Retreat - Blue Lagoon Iceland caters to relaxation seekers keen on enjoying Iceland's geothermal waters. Overlooking the world-renowned Blue Lagoon in Grindavik (about 30 miles southwest of Reykjavik), this property draws inspiration from its surroundings. Common areas and suites feature floor-to-ceiling windows with views of moss-covered rocks or the lagoon's ice blue water, as well as natural materials like wood and slate. Standard Moss-level accommodations come outfitted with balconies and freestanding bathtubs, while Lava- and Lagoon-level suites offer extras like terraces with direct lagoon access. What's more, all room rates – which some previous guests said are pricey – cover daily breakfast, Wi-Fi access, group yoga sessions and guided hikes as well as afternoon coffee in the lounge and valet parking. For travelers who want to pamper themselves during their stays, the hotel houses a spa that offers a variety of treatments, including in-water massages and facials that incorporate geothermal seawater. And when it's time to eat, guests can choose from one of four on-site dining venues. Past patrons highly recommend dining at the Moss and Lava restaurants, although some warned that service can be slow at times. Keep in mind that all visitors must be at least 12 years old to stay here.

    A staple in downtown Reykjavik, Iceland for more than 50 years, the Hotel Holt cherishes and celebrates Icelandic culture in an unparalleled manner.

And if you book directly through this hotel's website, you get a complimentary three-day pass to three of Reykjavik's art museums. What's more, the on-site Holt Restaurant, which opened in December 2018, provides visitors with exquisite food from an award-winning chef during dinner hours.

    Eyja Guldsmeden Hotel

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    As a country, Iceland emphasizes sustainable living, organic food and environmental improvement, and the Eyja Guldsmeden Hotel exemplifies these values. The property provides comfortable accommodations near central Reykjavik and supplies its guest with eco-friendly toiletries and reusable water bottles, among other sustainable perks. The 65-room hotel features cozy bohemian-style rooms, which include free Wi-Fi access, flat-screen TVs, and hardwood or parquet floors. Additional amenities include fresh breakfast options and picturesque views of Mount Esja. The property is situated on a quiet street off Laugavegur, a bit removed from the city's top attractions (Hallgrímur's Church and Harpa concert hall sit just over a mile away), which some guests bemoaned. However, Eyja Guldsmeden Hotel is close to bus station-turned-market Hlemmur, which provides healthy food options for guests as well as accessible transportation downtown. Visitors also enjoyed exploring the shops and restaurants around the hotel in the less touristy area of the city.

    • Free WiFi

    Alda Hotel Reykjavik serves as an arctic oasis committed to putting guests first: From the helpful staff to the delicious dining options to the in-house barbershop, this property has convenience covered. The hotel even offers smartphones for guests to use throughout their stay, with local calls and data included. While the hotel sits in the center of Reykjavik, it's situated on the quieter end of a main shopping street, Laugavegur, which creates a more peaceful atmosphere. The 88 guest rooms all sport cool colors and Icelandic designs, and in-room amenities include walk-in showers, coffee and tea makers, robes and TVs. Still, some guests say the rooms can feel a bit cramped and dark. Exploring Reykjavik is easy from this hotel, and iconic attractions such as the Sun Voyager sculpture and Hallgrímur's Church are less than 10 minutes away by foot. Travelers who want to venture outside the city and explore the Blue Lagoon, the Golden Circle or other natural Icelandic wonders can head to the nearby bus stop, where many excursions depart. Then, after an adventure-filled day, guests can return to the hotel to relax in the sauna or the outdoor hot tub. After unwinding, they head to dinner at the hotel's Brass Kitchen and Bar, which serves dishes like deep-fried Icelandic Camembert cheese and fish stew.
