This highly-rated accommodation in Iceland offers everything from a cosy fireplace to a private room overlooking the Northern Lights in the sky. The residence offers a cosy environment with all the amenities of a hotel but is located in one of Reykjavik's most popular hotels, the Canopy Hilton.

Hotel Laugarbakki is located just outside Reykjavik in the north of Iceland but is also a good option when you go around the island. If you do not have much time, as it is located in Snaefellsnes, the drive to Snasefellnes is a day trip option. The best place to stay in Iceland in winter is in summer when Iceland experiences the long days of the midnight sun. In winter, the weather is more stable, making it a great place for a short trip to the Northern Lights.

I think I returned to the Vogafjos guesthouse more than once, in fact, I enjoyed my first stay there so much that I thought about going back there again.

Speaking of independent boutique hotels in Reykjavik, the city has many elegant hotels where travellers can check-in. The other luxury hotels on Rey Island are the most popular and are praised for their service and ambience.

If you want to see the Northern Lights of Iceland in a hotel with a higher standard, Grand Hotel Reykjavik offers a normal hotel paired with first-class design. If you want a contemporary five-star hotel, you don't have to look far beyond the Hilton Reykavík Nordica. This hotel in northern Iceland offers all the facilities of a Nordic-style hotel and features amenities such as a fitness centre and bar. Located in the north of the city, just a few blocks from the city centre, it features amenities such as gyms and bars.

The Golden Circle is one of the best places to stay in Iceland if you want to visit Iceland for 5 days or less and still get to know the Icelandic nature. If you try to travel between Reykjavik and Jokulsarlon in one day, the journey there may seem even longer, as you have to make your way through a fjord one by one. This is especially true in Iceland, where the journey from Reykavík to Keflavik airport takes at least 45 minutes and many flights depart in odd hours. The airport is just a few blocks from the city centre and is a great place to stay with a good view of Iceland and the Northern Lights in the sky.

However, 99% of tourists arriving at the same airport as Keflavik spend most of their time in Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, trying to get access to the world-famous Blue Lagoon.

Although there are some budget hotels in Reykjavik, these hotels are an amazing value for money, considering that they are the only ones that are actually at the Blue Lagoon. Luxury hotels come in all shapes and sizes, from the most expensive to the cheapest, and they're as good as they come. While some of the hotels in Iceland are quirky, there are some really weird and wonderful Airbnbs that are all around.

Some of the best and most popular hotels in Reykjavik are located in the waterfront area of the city centre. Situated on the edge of the downtown waterfront, this Iceland nautical hotel is located by the Reykjavik marina and is embedded in a marina with a magnificent view of the harbour and the Blue Lagoon.

Although accommodation in Iceland is concentrated in Reykjavik and the west of the country, there are a number of hotels that have opened along popular tourist routes that include some of Iceland's most famous attractions. 

If you are not travelling to Iceland alone, you might want to settle in or near Reykafjordur, as most Iceland tours start from the capital city in the city centre for a few days and then travel on to the rest of Europe or the Middle East from a hotel in Reykjavik. Built-in 1990, the small but charming Kvosin Downtown Hotel offers superb views of Reiki, a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. The KEA Hotel offers a magnificent view over the harbour and the Blue Lagoon, as well as a lovely rooftop bar and restaurant.
