Our favourite rooms
If you’re into balcony-set private saunas with views of the sea and mountains, the Junior Suite is for you. That’s everyone, then. In any case, go for a room facing the city – you might be in earshot of occasional Reykjavik revellers, but the views are well worth it.
Enough woollies to keep you warm, but leave space in your case for one more – the snuggly sweaters in the hotel boutique are handmade by the owner’s mum.
The restaurant and bar are accessible for guests with mobility issues, and there are two Deluxe rooms designed for wheelchair users.
No, but they probably wouldn’t appreciate the fur rugs anyway. See more pet-friendly hotels in Reykjavik.
All ages welcome. Extra beds (ISK9,900 a night for under-14s) and baby cots (free) can be added to suites and Deluxe Rooms.
Recycled wood-plank flooring and organic linens give Ion City an eco-conscious aesthetic, and the selected bathroom products are kind to the environment too.
