Best Business Hotels in Iceland

View all Iceland Hotels

Sightseers and adventure-hunters are heading to Iceland at an unprecedented rate, but the country also hosts plenty of business travelers. Here are the best hotels for working visitors to stay.

  1. Popular with business travelers, this upscale hotel -- about a 15-minute walk from the city center -- has eight meeting rooms with space that includes casual seating areas with plush sofas and coffee tables, plasma screens, and video conferencing capability. (Altogether, the flexible-designed meeting rooms can house 970 people.) Room amenities include flat-screen TVs, irons and boards, safes, mini-fridges and coffee/tea facilities; Business Class Rooms and Suites also have Nespresso machines. Wi-Fi and newspapers are free.

  2. The Hilton Reykjavik Nordica, a 252-room chain property, is a 10-minute drive from the capitol's center. Higher-floor rooms at this four pearl hotel have views that include mountains and the sea in the distance. A stylish restaurant with fireplaces serves contemporary Scandinavian cuisine and a lobby bar offers premium drinks at half-price during happy hour. Set in a corporate neighborhood, the hotel attracts business travelers who appreciate its conference space and 11 meeting rooms. But the best feature of this hotel is its massive and contemporary gym with rooms for yoga and Pilates. 

  3. Located next to Reykjavik's domestic airport, the four-pearl Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura is a contemporary property convenient for business travelers and visitors in transit. Its 220 rooms, with airport and city views, range from tight-fitting spaces to rambling suites that once hosted chess grand master Bobby Fischer. There is a cozy lobby with a fireplace, a bar and restaurant with a wood-burning pizza oven, and wellness facilities that include a spa and an indoor saltwater pool. Free Wi-Fi and bus passes are part of the perks here, as is a stylish on-site movie theater.

  4. The four-pearl Radisson Blu 1919 Hotel, Reykjavik is in a historic downtown building near the harbor, restaurants, and shopping. Its 88 modern rooms have wood floors and sharp black furnishings, though some Standard Room bathrooms are dingy. Most perks -- like free breakfast and Nespresso machines -- are reserved for the Business Class Rooms. There's a stylish lounge bar as well as an on-site restaurant that serves local fare, while a fitness room, business center, and meeting rooms round out the business-friendly amenities. 

  5. The 200-room mid-range CenterHotel Plaza is directly on the town square in the heart of Reykjavik, within walking distance of restaurants, bars, and sights. The hotel's central location -- as well as the free property-wide Wi-Fi and conference and meeting spaces -- has a lot of appeal for business travelers. The hotel is spread over three different (but adjoining) buildings, and room quality varies from small and dated to more spacious and modern. Common areas are sleek and modern and include plenty of lounge areas plus a bar with a daily happy hour. There's a decent free breakfast buffet, but the hotel lacks a proper restaurant.

  6. With its proximity to downtown, this stylish, 104-room hotel is a hotspot for business travelers and tourists alike (it's just a three-minute walk from Reykjavik's main shopping street and in walking distance of most of the city's sights). The small rooms are tasteful and modern with minibars, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. The hotel has a top-floor bar, a lounge, and a restaurant offering up a nice free breakfast buffet and excellent views of the city and sea. There's also a small basement spa, though it costs an extra fee for guests in Standard Rooms.
