Renovations at the Radisson Blu Saga Hotel

The Radisson Blu Saga Hotel is located in the heart of Reykjavik‘s Educational West District and recently began renovations of its facilities. The hotel has been owned by The Farmers Association of Iceland since its inception in 1962 and is a famous landmark of the city. The hotel has received its share of famous and well-known celebrities in its prime that included Mia Farrow, Neil Armstrong and Led Zeppelin among others.

The renovations began on top of the hotel in 2013 with the complete refurbishment of the Grillið restaurant which is located on the hotel’s secluded 8th floor. Grillið has within its own right been a well-known culinary pursuit and constantly recreates a new approach to the art of cooking. This approach is highly influenced by the hotel’s origin and its owners. The culinary team emphasizes its relationship with the farmers by creating and selecting menus designed with local seasonal ingredients at its forefront. Grillið is now featured in TripAdvisor’s list for the top ten best restaurants in Reykjavík.

The hotel’s meeting and events floor went through its renovations in 2017 with a new look and the latest technological equipment installed in all rooms and public areas. These changes create a versatile meeting and event environment for our guests for any occasion. We also opened a new bakery in the hotel where our baking team add an enticing element to our meetings and events with unique breads and pastries freshly made each day ensuring that our guests have a more memorable experience.

The saga continues in the hotel – pun intended – and although the results of the renovations are already waiting to be explored, the hotel still has some exciting projects in store. So, stay tuned for the opening of the brand-new restaurant and bar!
