A small newly opened design hotel in top location of Reykjavik. Very comfortable beds, nice bathroom and high quality in all details. The service of f&b was non existing when we visited but a Vine Bar were supposed to open in mid july. Breakfast was served in a small neighbor Restaurant and was quite OK. The system with codes in stead of room keys is brilliant. Room rates are high but may be acceptable when all service in-house are up running. Must be the best hotel in R.

My friends and I stayed at the Kvosin hotel this past weekend as we celebrated a birthday. We had 4 rooms and the top suite was unbelievable. With 2 rooms (1 double bed / bunkbed in the other), an amazing stereo system and 2 spectacular Patios. I was told by the locals that it likely was the best hotel room in Reykavik. The staff were amazing and a special shout out to Emilio! They are completing a new restaurant which will be the cherry topping on the cake. The restaurant that they currently use, provided a delightful breakfast and lunch if you chose to eat there. I would recommend this hotel to everyone far and wide. The location is perfect right next to Hotel Borg and no more than 5 minutes to anyplace that you need to get to in the heart of Reykavik! A magnificent spot!

How great you were able to celebrate the birthday in style! Emilio (Edoardo actually) has been with us right from the start and we’re very pleased with his work. Your shout out to him is very appreciated! Our Vínbarinn restaurant is now in full force and offers meals during lunch and dinner time, along with Reykjavík’s biggest selection of wines. Thanks for recommending our hotel, I sure hope you’ll be back soon!

With best regards,
The Kvosin Team

We were in a 2-room suite which was sizeable (in terms of common area- living room, dining area) but had tiny bedrooms (basically the size of a double bed). The bathroom was nice, but anytime you shower the whole bathroom floor gets wet.

While I think the room size was small, some of our friends who stayed in some of the other rooms had quite sizeable rooms so I think it just depends on which one you book!

The interior decoration is amazing- very modern and yet rustic- everything made of natural elements with neutral coloring (grey/yellow... gorgeous!)

Staff was overall very helpful and courteous, and we even had a BBQ in the courtyard (organized by my cousin who got married in Iceland during this trip).

Location was convenient right near center of town.

Thank you for your feedback, Jennifer. You're probably referring to our “Biggest” room, -our rooms are designed into previously existing apartments so they differ somewhat in size and price. I am so glad you liked our Icelandic/Scandinavian design and thank you for a nice review.

With greetings from Iceland,
The Kvosin Team

its a wow @ every turn! i've been to many boutique hotels but by far this is the best...excellent location...stayed for 4 nights for a wedding party and we had the whole hotel so i got to nose around most of the rooms...every single one is top notch! well thought of lay-outs and amazing audio systems...love the keyless entry too! if they could only have squeezed a bath in the rooms as it would be nice to have a soak after a long day of sight seeing...nevertheless the showers are amazing!

Room Tip: 305 is great but all rooms are amazing! seriously!

Hi there Jasper,
Thank you for the great review. I am happy you got to see most of our rooms and also great you used our audio system as there you can either listen to Icelandic radio or plug your own device with a mini-jack and play your own music. I’m sorry that the rooms don’t include a bath tub but I’d like to point out that the nearest swimming pool is open ‘til 10 PM during work days and it’s actually an incredibly authentic venue with a delightful atmosphere.

Greetings,
The Kvosin Team

We rented the entire hotel for our destination wedding in Iceland and having everyone at Kvosin was one of the highlights. Because we had the whole place, I can you we've seen the insides of every room and there isn't one bad room in this place. The finishing is all of the highest quality and finest taste. Comfortable beds, beautiful bathrooms, Aveda products, and scrumptious breakfast every morning at Bergsson downstairs. The newly opened hotel had service beyond 5 stars and location is incredible, right in the heart of charming Reykjavik. All attractions are within easy walking distance. For those of you wishing to impress and throw a party/gathering, Suite 401 covers the entire top floor and boasts 2 unbelievable balconies, totaling 1000 sq ft. We can't thank Kvosin and it's amazing manager Birgir enough for the hospitality and for going out of their way to make this a memorable stay for all of us and our guests. We had an overflow of guests who had to stay at other locations and I think they were all jealous of what they saw at Kvosin. We will definitely return to Iceland at some point and will stay here again and recommend it to all our friends without a doubt. Amazing place.
