On a recent trip to Reykjavik, Iceland, I stayed at the Radisson Blu 1919 Hotel. I’d heard good reports from others, and so I was not surprised to find a lovely hotel, blissfully located right in the heart of Reykjavik in easy walking distance to everything the city has to offer.
The first floor lobby and interior is quite interesting! The rather quirky and curious art next to the traditional furnishings makes the room memorable.
Here’s the front desk. I found that hotel staff was very helpful.
The hotel had an art deco feel to it. This winding staircase, with decorative railings and stone steps, was beautiful (though we took the elevator).
We had a large room, which included a couch and desk. It looked surprisingly like my room at the Radisson Blu Plaza hotel in Helsinki!
Love the Nespresso machine!
We received some very nice welcome gifts from the hotel.
The bathroom was basic, but very clean.
Just outside the hotel was the hot dog stand that I had read so much about.
The breakfast at the hotel was great! It was hearty and all of the ingredients were fresh. Adding breakfast to a stay in Iceland is a good move because the cost of food is so expensive there.
The fitness center was clean and had cardio machines, weights and plenty of space to work out and stretch out.
There was a refrigerator with chilled water. The bottles were made of glass, which I found rather surprising for a gym.
We had a great few days in Reykjavik (stay tuned for a post about what we saw and did in our three days there). The hotel was a perfect choice for our visit to Reykjavik!
