Overview

Accommodations are clean and hotel is centrally located
Rooms can be cramped, guests say
Housed in the structure of a 1917 Reykjavik apothecary, the Apotek Hotel blends elements of boutique living with history, as it is one of the oldest buildings in the city. Decorated with gray and white neutral hues and modern furniture, the Apotek Hotel features 45 guest rooms. While some guests found the rooms to be on the small side, they raved about the showers and other in-room amenities, such as the luxury toiletries. Plus, all rooms come with free Wi-Fi access, Nespresso coffee makers and safes. If you're looking to splurge, book the three-floor Tower Suite, which boasts panoramic views of the city. When staying here, visitors also have access to the spa at the property's sister hotel, located next door. As for decor, the Apotek Hotel pays tribute to the building's history and designer, Guðjón Samúelsson (who also designed the famous Hallgrímur's Church), through artwork and sculptures. Downstairs, the bartenders, or "pharmacists," at Apotek Kitchen + Bar honor the historic apothecary by concocting drinks they refer to as painkillers, stimulants, tranquilizers and prescriptions. The restaurant's meals combine traditional Icelandic and European flavors to create dishes such as minke whale and sea trout. While the hotel doesn't offer parking, guests say the property redeems itself with its convenient position within walking distance of the Reykjavik Cathedral, Laugavegur, Harpa concert hall and the National Gallery of Iceland, as well as many shops and restaurants.
