Where to stay in Reykjavik

In this highly walkable capital, many of Reykjavik's hotels and guesthouses offer close proximity to the city's popular attractions, bars, and restaurants. The waterfront offers an exciting dose of activity. Although Reykjavik provides plenty of accommodations to its flocks of visitors, there is a dearth of budget options in the city. Price-conscious visitors should consider staying in a hostel, with both private and dorm rooms available, or a nearby campsite. Although the campground is not as centrally located as some hotels, guests are better positioned to take advantage of the natural surroundings.

  • A different museum. Those who enjoy architecture will love this building. The café was nice as well.  more »

  • Small but beautiful collection. This art gallery is in connection with 2 others, paying for one ticket (1600kr) gets you in to all 3 for the day. Sculpture Gallery and the Contemporary Art museum in downtown Reykjavik. The gallery features Kjarval works. If you have the time and are very into art you will won't mind the walk. I would not recommend if you are rushing or aren't super enthusiasts about art galleries.
  • Great place to stay over night, mostly covored with wifi plus big and calm place for your car! 10/10 would camp again!
  • This art museum is dedicated to Johannes S. Kjarval one of Iceland most recognised artists. The building style is very modern. If you are into arts this is a good choice.
  • Dedicated to one of the most famous painters in Iceland. Great to visit if you know he artist.
  • Loved this Museum, the building itself is art.
