Sandhotel - Luxury Hotel in Reykjavik

A boutique collection of art deco townhouses transformed into a modern Reykjavik retreat

Founded on literary heritage and the city’s best cinnamon buns, Sandhotel immerses you in Reykjavik’s past – and future. This collection of historic townhouses turned contemporary retreat has more than a few stories to tell. It all starts the moment you open the door.

One of the hotel’s houses is the former home of Nobel Prize winning author Halldor Laxness. Another puts you above the enticing scents of Sandholt – a bakery loved by locals. But whichever luxury house you find yourself in, expect impeccable style with an art deco touch. Look out for one-off features throughout – from works by Icelandic artists to plush fabrics sourced from offcuts from the city’s oldest tailors. Sample fresh-from-the-oven cinnamon buns from Sandholt. Or explore the seasonal menu at Sandbar & Bistro, the hotel´s restaurant.

Whether it’s summer with its midnight sunshine or an aurora-chasing winter, Sandhotel is your snug base for Icelandic adventures. The concierge can help plan an adventure taking in glaciers, waterfalls and volcanic sands. Or simply tell you about the latest exhibitions and shows opening in the city. Closer to home are the shops and cafes of Laugavegur street. Or you could cosy up in your room with the shopping menu and have custom-made clothes brought straight to you.
