Cool Nordic design colors the sleek, 18-room Ion City Hotel, which made its debut in Reykjavik with a soft-opening last month. This new Design Hotels member located in a renovated building, features exterior walls with a motif inspired by traditional Icelandic weaving.
Guestrooms and suites range from the 215-sq.-ft. Classic Room to the 807-sq.-ft. Panorama Suite. While the Classic Room and the 279-sq.-ft. Deluxe Room offer a window-side sofa, the upgraded 322-sq.-ft. Junior Suite boasts a balcony with a private sauna. The 473-sq.-ft. City Suite features a French balcony, a private indoor sauna, and a living room with a dining table, while the Panorama Suite includes an indoor sauna, a powder room with a table and chair, a guest bathroom adjoining the living room, a dining table, and a bar area with the option of a bartender or chef on request. While the hotel’s main avenue address provides guests with convenient access to Ion City’s neighboring cafes, bars, restaurants, and galleries, they’ll want to save room for the onsite North African-inspired restaurant, Sumac, helmed by the country’s culinary Olympic team director Thrainn Freyr Vigfusson.
