Timeless comfort and a warm welcome in the heart of the city. The best of Reykjavik is seconds away, as clean design, great service and an outstanding location deliver all you need for a happy stay.
The raw aesthetic at Skuggi Hotel takes inspiration from the critically acclaimed work of Icelandic photographer Ragnar Axelsson. His black and white photos of Iceland and Icelanders capture the essence of the people and the landscape in stark and striking images.
The place to be
Skuggi Hotel has a location that’s hard to beat. On one hand, it’s just a short walk to the main shopping area of Laugavegur, one long stretch of classic shops and places to eat and drink. On the other, the hotel sits on Hverfisgata, a once-quiet street that’s been called the new cool quarter of town. Take a wander and discover a whole range of new bars, restaurants, and an arthouse cinema.
The first stop for foodies
A big part of the area’s new vibrancy is the renovation of the old bus terminal at Hlemmur. Just a few paces away from Skuggi, it has been transformed into a buzzing food hall – a self-styled ‘first stop for foodies’. Icelandic lamb rubs shoulders with authentic Vietnamese street food, South American tacos, Italian gelato and more, in a fun and informal setting. No ticket required.
