    You can see YOKO ONO's Imagine light in winter!


    I am now staying in this Hilton hotel which was part of the package tour that I booked with Icelandair. The hotel is famous for being a business hotel, but unfortunately you still have to pay for the wireless internet per hour (can be per hour, less than US$10). There are 2 computers at the side of the front desk for guests.

    It’s a wonderful clean hotel, very business-like in approach but not really close to the city center. They do have complimentary shuttle service but it is scheduled only twice in the morning and then early evening times– so I did not even get to use those. I just walked about 25 minutes to the city shopping center --- a good exercise, but it’s always tiring coming back when I am carrying stuff that I had bought. However, it is close to the Laugardalur acivity park which has the best swimming pools with botanical gardens and an animal zoo.

    During the winter, you can also see from the Hilton the tallest monument on earth – the enormous tower of light by Yoko Ono in memory of John Lennon and the words engraved on its pedestal “Imagine peace” in 25 languages! Unfortunately, I was in Iceland during summer (which I prefer anyway).

    But they gave me a room whose veiw is not towards the harbour, so maybe ask a room facing the front of the hotel.

    All the rooms have wooden floors (this is a luxury in a country with few trees) and very practical bathrooms. The beds are a bit hard but comfy and the curtains thick to shut out the brightness from the midnight sun.
    The front desk people were very helpful and they have a tourist space where you can book your activities (but cheaper and more convenient if you do online IMO).

    The best part is the VOX restaurant which has an absolutely great breakfast buffet (starts at 7 AM but you can have early-bird breakfast at 4AM- which I will be doing today because I have an early flight to Northern Iceland next…)

    Nice business hotel, but quite far from city center and it would be nicer to stay in the many guesthouses in the city center if you do not want to shuttle back and forth. But for luxury comfort and class, stay at the Hilton.

    Unique Quality: VOX restaurant, considered one of best restaurants in Iceland

    Nordica Hotel


    Icelandair has a few hotels in Iceland they own. The Nordica Hotel is one of them. It is about 15 minutes walk from the city centre. The hotel is a decent and good. The staff is really helpfull to you. The rooms are comfertable. For all of this you are paying for it.

    When I was staying at the Nordica Hotel, the price for a single room was ISK 21300 (included breakfast). I had a single deluxe.

    Unique Quality: It is clean, the staff is really helpfull and good service.

    Excellent place to stay for an upscale mini-break.

    Unique Quality: Make sure your room is an executrive room as this allows access to the Panormaa Lounge on the eighth floor - the views from there are magnificent: snowcapped mountains, the bay and the city. Also, there is a relaxing spa - you get a free head massage once a day!

    Directions: A 6 minute cab ride from downtown.

Stayed here 5 nights in August 2005 for a conference. During my stay, Clint Eastwood and Mrs Tony Blair stayed also. I suppose that says something.
In any case, good rooms, good food, good conference facilities.

Icelandair Hotels

by Bjorgvin about Nordica Hotel

Nordica Hotel re-opened in April 2003 after enlargement and extensive renovation. This is a large **** hotel (284 rooms) with all modern facilities. I am told that the new fitness center and spa is excellent, and also the new gourmet restaurant - Vox.

Just renovated hotel

The Nordica hotel was just renovated. It is located in Midtown Reykjavik. There are total of 284 rooms. Although there are also Business and executive rooms in Nordica also standard singleroom was spacious.The hotel also has a hot tub and jacuzzi. Lobby bar was great and the restaurant Vox downstairs was aiming for a Michelin Star.

Hotel Nordica - Reykjavik, Iceland

by Ryssby about Hotel Nordica

Excellent, modern, well-managed hotel. Great food. My accomodations were part of an Icelandic Airlines package from JFK-New York. Fantastic views. Be sure to ask for a high room facing the bay. Hopefully you will have clear weather resulting in the types of views depicted in this photo. On my trip in June 2004 (16 hours of sunlight) I rented a car at the airport which gave me great freedom to get around Reyjavik and to explore many of the natural wonders outside of the city.

One of Iceland's Best

by CubanaItaliana about Nordica Hotel

The hotel was very modern, expensive but worth it. It has a wonderful Spa and very good concierge services. The rooms are not too big but have hard wood floors and great deep bath tubs, excellent mattresses and pillows the curtains are thick which is very helpful when visiting Iceland during the summer. The hotel staff is very accommodating and it is located about 10 minutes from downtown Reykjavik


by InNebraska about Iceland Air's Hotel Nordica (formerly "Esja")

Very nice. Standard Rooms very very small, but very modern and nice, with unmatchable views. Ask for a room with full view of Mt. Esja. you will face east, southeast - it is fantastic! Natural Hot Springs Hot Tub in the Hotels Spa. You are surrounded by Lapas Lazuri walls and floor, candles flickering blossoms in the water and Liscensed Message Therapist who will give you a neck and shoulder message while you sit there (for free)

Restaurants near Hilton Reykjavik?

by SusieQQ

Any recommendations for restaurants within 5 to 10 minute walking distance from Hilton Reykjavik Nordica? Any price or cuisine but no Fast-Food Chains, please.

Re: Restaurants near Hilton Reykjavik?

Volare is ca. 15 min walk towards downtown. Best italian
in my opinion. My tip: http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/fd79f/3c82b/2/

If you like Asian go to Nings. It's technically a fast food chain but not the typical greasy unhealthy choice. Good food and quality ingredients. It's expensive for fast food but cheap for restaurants runs from about 1100kr- 1800kr for a full meal. Walk east along the Suðurlandsbraut( same street as the hotel is in) until you see the sign. It's very close.

There is actually a whole range of restaurants in about 10-20 min walk from the Hilton all on Laugarvegur and adjacent street.

Re: Restaurants near Hilton Reykjavik?

Thanks, I'll be in Reykjavik for a week so I'll definitely give them a try.

Re: Restaurants near Hilton Reykjavik?

by SK6Reykjavik

The best restaurant near Hilton is Brasserie Askur, icelandic cuisine and very good prices. They have a steak buffet on the sunday night with great meat for a good offer. Be careful, if you want to be sure, you should book in advance on high season because there are a lot of tourists from Nordica who eat there.

walking from Hilton to center ?

by SusieQQ

Can either of you tell me the best walking route from the Hilton to the Center of town? By best, I guess I mean the easiest. I plan on using the Hilton Shuttle and Taxis whenever but would also like to be able to walk it.

Re: Restaurants near Hilton Reykjavik?

Laugarvegur, the main shopping street downtown isactually connected to Suðurlandsbraut where the Hilton stands. So what you do is when you walk out of the hotel turn left and follow the street until you reach Hlemmur, the bus hub, and go left off it and you see in front of you the start of the main shopping part of Laugarvegur. Continue Laugarvegur to the end and your in the very center.

If the weather is good you should walk downtown. I think it wouldn't take more than 5-7 min to reach Hlemmur and 20-25 min to reach the center. Depends on your walking speed of course.

Re: Restaurants near Hilton Reykjavik?

by SusieQQ

Wow, thanks for the quick response. One of the days I will be in Reykjavik is on Culture Night so if the weather is nice I thought that would be a good day to walk it.

Re: Restaurants near Hilton Reykjavik?

by halfdeaf

Yes, there will probably be events and happenings all around Laugarvegur and the central area. Stores, museums and galleries usually have something going on, on culture night. Be prepared for huge crowds escecially in the evening.
