Great, little hotel in the heart of downtown Reykjavik! Very friendly staff that greeted us upon arrival with glasses of sparkling champagne! The room was very clean and comfortable with an amazing view of the Hallgrímskirkja church steeple. While parking was difficult to find (street parking only), there were many places to walk to eat and shop and explore the city.

No street parking, had to walk two blocks with bags. Should have been given this information on or before booking

The comfiest beds I've ever slept in
I cannot wait to come back to Reykjavik and stay at the Ion City Hotel again! What an absolute gem of a hotel. It was extremely cozy with a wonderful ambiance, plus it's so central to downtown! We were easily able to make the most of our time in the city (one evening and most of the next day). Everyone we met on the front desk was super lovely and helpful and we were able to leave our bags with them on our final afternoon in the city. Just for anyone else who gets lost trying to find the hotel though - search for Sumac (the restaurant) on google and it's much easier to find than the hotel, which is not v well signed and was very easy to walk right past. Also I was perhaps slightly sad that there wasn't a hot tub or pool (for some reason I'd convinced myself there was - but perhaps I was thinking of the Adventure hotel out in Thingvellir - which also looks fantastic but we discovered is incredibly remote). But given this was my head making things up, I really can't hold it against them! Finally, there's parking on the streets around the hotel so if you're driving as part of your holiday, this is super easy to sort out!

Almost Perfect.
Marvelous design and view. Staff was kind and attentive. Housekeeping needs to check under couch cushions as it looks as if it hadn’t been vacuumed out in years, and one of our tea service spoons was filthy. Early morning construction happening below the room. Future guests may want to inquire about possible construction sound disruptions.
