The Sandhotel is a stylish hot-spot in chilly Reykjavik. It's this wild and wonderful combination of city sights and natural delights that make this a perfect fit for a journey to Iceland.

Property Details

The Sandhotel is comprised of three houses dating back to 1929, including an old bakery that is still run by the descendants of the original shop. The icy grey of Iceland’s Atlantic surf and the iridescent blues of the hot springs come to life in the color scheme. Art Deco touches like the tufted, velvet headboards pair effortlessly with the modern aesthetic and contemporary local artwork. Crystal lamps illuminate bedside tables. A cozy down comforter keeps you warm and snuggly on chilly nights. Heated floors make getting out of that warm and snuggly bed much easier to bear. Rooms and suites stretch out over five floors and each is a comfortable and design-chic retreat.

A unique perk of a stay at Sandhotel is the mobile phone you receive upon arrival. This little luxury makes it easy to access the Internet and stay connected when you are out exploring Reykjavik and its surrounds.

Eco-conscious travelers will feel at ease, too. The hotel takes pride in its environmentally-friendly outlook with a focus on recycling and the use of mainly local products.

Indulge your sweet tooth with a tantalizing choice of breakfast pastries at the bakery, including cinnamon buns, a local favorite. Follow the scent of freshly-baked bread to the dining area. Evening meals include an ever-changing menu that offers pastas, meats, and fresh fish.

The Sandhotel’s address on Laugavegur street is a lively one; be prepared to do a lot of jumping between the bars and shops. This is Reykjavik’s entertainment, cultural, and culinary heart. There are plenty of museums to see, including the Saga Museum where you can immerse yourself into Iceland’s viking history. Your Ker & Downey designer will help you craft the perfect day in the city fit for your own unique interests.

Venture farther afield to completely unwind in one of the area’s 18 geothermal swimming pools. Consider a float around the harbor to spot whales—a spectacular sight so close to the city.
