- The bikes provided by the hotel that are perfect for exploring the streets of Reykjavik. - The Canopy Central Café's library, home to more than 1,000 records, which guests can play on the ten record players. - The comfortable and colorful public spaces


The younger, hipper sister property to Konsulat, Canopy Hotel features quintessentially Scandinavian design, with bright and lively common spaces and minimal yet comfortable rooms. Tucked away from the waterfront, but still within walking distance of all major sites, the Canopy Hotel resembles an NYC WeWork, buzzing with cool locals and international guests.

Comprised of six interconnected houses, the hotel offers well-appointed rooms and suites with heated floors and muted colors. The Heritage Room and One-Bedroom Suites are more high-design, with punchy wallpaper and high ceilings.

Dinner is served at the Geiri Smart restaurant, which offers Icelandic fare sourced from local farmers and fishermen that's served in a chic and funky dining room with cozy banquette seating.

Who Should Stay

Younger travelers who want a lively, fun atmosphere with a central location and don't mind minimal amenities.

Good To Know

Guests should be aware that Reykavik has an active nightlife scene, and rooms on the front side of the hotel can be affected by noise.
