Iceland has some 360,000 inhabitants, and two-thirds of them live in the island nation's capital, Reykjavik, located on the southwest coast. If Iceland is an adventure traveler’s dream destination, Reykjavik is the main point of access for most excursions—and it’s the country’s cultural and food hub.


We only feature hotels that we can vouch for first-hand. With Indagare Plus,members receive special amenities.

Konsulat Hotel

A product of Reykjavik’s burgeoning design scene, the Konsulat Hotel is a stylish reflection of Icelandic tradition. The 50-room property, part of Hilton’s Curio Collection brand, is centrally located on the site of a former department store. The sophisticated décor fosters a gentleman’s club ambience, with bronze fixtures, herringbone headboards, vintage steamer trunks and tufted-leather upholstery. As a quirky local touch, the tiles in the bathroom recall the star motif of a classic Icelandic wool sweater.

After a day of outdoor adventure, guests can retreat to the hotel’s bath house—which includes a sauna and hot tub as well as a gym—located one floor below street level. The hotel is also home to Gott, a family-owned restaurant with an additional outpost on the Westman Islands.

Families should note that there is only one twin-bedded room, though connecting rooms can be reserved. Those traveling with little ones can also book a Deluxe Room, many of which have pull-out sofa beds. The most spacious accommodation is the Diplomat Suite, a corner option with a separate living room and private terrace.
