We are always growing stronger and better
New facilities at Icelandair Hotel Reykjavík Marina have further enhanced the hotel’s lively atmosphere that our guests love so much. We have expanded with new beautiful rooms and suites, delightful common areas on the ground floor, a new vibrant café called Kaffislippur, as well as our jewel, the exclusive Reykjavik Marina Residence.
Just like other rooms at the hotel, the 39 new elegant rooms - taken in use in summer 2015 - are decorated with contemporary Icelandic design and references to our maritime culture. The rooms are on four floors and of various types. The new common area will have facilities for events with up to 50 guests and another space for 25–30 people, well suited for all kinds of promotions or private parties.
The essence of Kaffislippur is ‘delicatessen’. It’s the place to have a seat and enjoy the homemade delicacies with an awesome view of life in the harbour. Or perhaps you need a nice place to work or simply want to grab some refreshments along to your adventures. Our specialty is the brilliant breakfast, coffee of all kinds, wholesome lunch and captivating cakes. When the café closes at 6pm, the festivities continue at Slippbarinn. However, the facilities at Kaffislippur are still available for those looking for more peaceful surroundings.
The ‘home suite home’, Reykjavik Marina Residence, opened in fall 2015. The focus is on exclusive private service, high-class comfort and décor. The residence is located just next to Reykjavik Marina’s main building in two renovated historic Reykjavik houses. The lounge and the main suite Aðalbjörg (60 m2) is located in Daniel’s House, a former residence of the shipbuilder Daniel Thorsteinsson. Six more exclusive rooms (40 m2), are located in the next door house.
Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Marina is a new and stylish hotel in the heart of Reykjavik with a unique character and never a dull moment. Sleep and wake in fun, colourful surroundings with friendly staff to serve and assist you. Original, colourful and modern designs characterise the hotel, combined with old relics from the harbour and shipyard. Rooms are uniquely decorated with original styles that catch your eye, capture your heart, and could never be mistaken for anywhere else you’ve ever stayed.
Reykjavik Marina is located by a slipway in the old downtown harbour district of Reykjavik, where it has a unique view of the ocean. The slipway is a great location for a hotel, just a stone’s throw from the capital's attractions, with one of the best views across the bay. The harbour has seen a lot of development over the past few years with a number of great restaurants and markets being established in the area recently.
