This is my dream hotel. It is like walking out of the streets of Reykjavík into another era. A prettier one.
The walls are wood paneled, and the most beautiful paintings and drawings hang on them. The couple that built the hotel in the 60s were art collectors, and their treasures are on display throughout the hotel. It's dim, there are many book shelves full of pretty books and the sofas are just so comfy!
The bedrooms follow the same spirit of the hotel, and the decor is somewhere in the elegant part of the 70s. Our room wasn't big, but wasn't small as well. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. The bathroom didn't have a bathtub but the shower was good. There were bathrobes and toiletries. Our room was on the back of the hotel, so it was quiet.
The breakfast was really good, diverse and well executed. The tiles in the breakfast room are gorgeous.
Treating yourself to a meal at the restaurant is worth the price. The food is amazing and the service is impecable. Also, some of the best paintings in the collection are there, and it feels wonderful to eat great food in such good company.
