Reykjavik Konsulat Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton

Reykjavik Konsulat Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton now open

We always get very excited when a new hotel opens in Reykjavík. Especially when it is one of our associated partner that is opening a new property. So when Icelandair Hotels opened up the new Reykjavik Konsulat Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton to us and other curious visitors we entered with butterflies in the stomach.

It’s safe to say we were not disappointed. The location of the new hotel was once a 1900s department store, and the new charming building is decorated with eclectic architecture that nods to historical times. The hotel is part of the exclusive Curio Collection by Hilton, a global portfolio of nearly 50 upper upscale, one-of-a-kind hotels and resorts all celebrated for their individuality.

The interiors of the 50 rooms hotel pay tribute to the historical grandeur of Consul Thomsen, the owner of the historical department store Thomsen Magasin. Thomsen welcomed the first foreign dignitaries in the 19th Century, establishing a legacy of international hospitality in Iceland. There is an authentic connection to the history of the Thomsen family throughout the hotel, starting with the welcome gift on arrival and the timeless, black and white photography in the stylish guest rooms.
