This cluster of upcycled buildings and new structures united in the hotel-as-village model incorporates a street-facing haberdashery opened in 1918, as well as the bakery Sandholt, manned by a team of fifth-generation bakers and loved for its hearty rye, kamut and quinoa breads. Upstairs, the cozy 53 guest rooms are accented with art from the local gallery I8, which represents some of the country’s best-known contemporary artists, including Olafur Eliasson and Ragnar Kjartansson.

The location is perfect
The bed was very comfortable, the location is perfect. It was nice to receive a mobile phone with internet access for the duration of our stay, we could check google map while walking through the city. The staff was nice.
The front desk personnel at this hotel were amazing
The front desk personnel at this hotel were amazing. We were only put up at this hotel on short notice by our airline when our flight got delayed, but they went above and beyond to be helpful in tracking down information on when our flight would leave. The room was wonderful, including the pack n play for our 3 year old.
A beautiful, luxurious and stylish option
The hotel is next to the Sandholt Bakery, which is one of the best bakeries I’ve ever been to (and I had just spent 5 weeks in France!) where I met friends for croissants or sandwiches many times during the stay. The hotel is on one of the main streets in the midst of the action, within easy walking distance of amazing restaurants, shopping, the Hallgrímskirkja and the Harpa Concert Hall square. The Sandhotel is a beautiful, luxurious and stylish option for a stay in Reykjavik.
This hotel is in a great location
This hotel is in a great location, its right on the main shopping street. You can walk around the city of Reykjavik. The hotel also gives you a cell phone that you’re able to use to look up restaurants, happy hour, and you can also use it for navigation if you’re renting a car and traveling to a site you want to see.
Definitely will return
The hotel staff was AMAZING!! I would give them ten thumbs up. Definitely will return and stay here again.
Enjoyed every minute
We stayed three nights in this amazing hotel and enjoyed every minute. Sometimes when entering a room, you can feel that someone has put a lot of thoughts and love in its creation and this was my exact feeling when entering the hotel and our room in particular. The room interior was fantastic. The rooms have a good size and have everything you need to feel at home in a foreign environment: a place to put your luggage, some chairs, a closet with hangers, free WIFI & a smartphone (!!), and a coffee machine with an excellent selection of coffees. The bed is extremely comfortable. The bathroom is also of well-thought size with a comfortable shower. The icing on the cake are the offered beauty products from a local Icelandic brand. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. In particular, our nightly check-in was handled perfectly. I highly recommend this place.
Definitely one of top 3 hotels I have stayed in
Excellent service, impeccable design, bed and duvet were heaven! Amazing modern art everywhere, delicious & beautiful food, home made soda and atmosphere in every detail beams a beautiful philosophy of life, history, art and culture. Definitely one of top 3 hotels I have stayed in.
Beautiful design all over
The breakfast was excellent, delicious and fresh. The beds were the most comfortable and the room was really nice, beautiful design all over with the Icelandic art all around the hotel. The concept is brilliant!
