What people say

"Ion City Hotel is a design hotel in the center of Reykjavík. It's on Laugavegur, the city's main shopping street. It's above Sumac Grill + Drinks, a creative Middle Eastern restaurant. Plus it's the sister property of Ion Adventure Hotel near Thingvellir National Park. The hotel's small lobby is decorated with Icelandic birch, a light fixture that looks like a bird's nest, and a sofa that was custom made into a window seat. The staff at the front desk even wears Icelandic-made clothing and jewelry. They'll happily call you if your room is ready before check-in time. When you go upstairs, you'll find that the hallway lights are controlled by motion--and there are only 18 rooms. The cozy spaces have more window seats, Bluetooth speakers, and complimentary minibars. The bathrooms are decorated with a glass-walled shower and Icelandic stones. Their Sóley Organics products are heavenly. Note: The hotel's minimal vibe extends to its service. Though the front desk is always manned, it's just one person. They're helpful and willing to answer any questions, but if you prefer more concierge-style assistance, you may want to consider other hotels."
