Travelling around Iceland, there’s some amazing places to stay. We could only stay at a few during the time we were there and here are our top 5 places to stay in Iceland.
1) Viking Village Hotel
We had a great time at the Viking Village Hotel just outside of Reykjavik. The staff were really friendly and helpful and they gave us a room at the front of the hotel with views over the harbour. Which luckily meant that when the northern lights came out around 10pm, we were able to view them from the warmth and comfort of our hotel room (ask to stay in room number 32 if you can!) The beds were massive and really comfy.
They also had lovely little hot tub outside at the back of the hotel which was really relaxing after a long day traveling. The complimentary breakfast was delicious and the Viking restaurant next to the hotel was good fun, with local musicians serenading you over your Viking meal.

2) Geo Hotel
This is a great hotel on the south coast of the Reykjavik peninsula. It’s very modern design inside is contemporary and sleek and they leave out teas and coffees and sometimes pastries throughout the day to feed you after a long day sightseeing. The staff were really helpful and left out menus for all the local restaurants so you can choose what you want before arriving at the restaurant.
Great place to stay while you’re touring this area. It’s also very close to the blue lagoon and the main airport. So a great alternative if you want to stay outside of the city. To check on availability and pricing, click here.
3) Hotel Ranga
You might catch the northern lights overhead at this high-end, cosy and intimate riverside hotel, which offers thoughtfully decorated suites and modern Nordic cuisine, an hour from Reykjavík.
