I have a minor love affair with Iceland. While I have yet to explore everything there is to see and do, I keep returning to add to my experiences.

Iceland is easy to travel to with reasonably priced and frequent flights. Unfortunately, however, things become much more expensive once you arrive, especially hotel rooms.

While I’ve stayed at nearly a dozen Icelandic hotels, The Reykjavik EDITION has been at the top of my list of places yet to visit in the capital city. During previous visits, I watched the hotel being built. Completed in 2021, the hotel is a Marriott-branded luxury hotel and quite pricey (at least for my budget).

Since life is short and I rarely regret my bolder travel decisions, it seemed the appropriate time to reach deep into my wallet and book a 2-night stay.

Even with my decision to splurge, to justify staying again, it would need to be in the off-peak season to keep costs lower. Here’s how it all played out.

Booking

As with any expensive hotel stay, I try to employ a few tactics to keep costs lower. I’ll attempt to use free night certificates I may have accumulated, redeem hotel loyalty points, or take advantage of any hotel statement credits I might have access to.

The nights I wanted to book at The Reykjavik EDITION were over $500 each night for this April 2024 stay. In the summer, rates for the hotel are closer to $800 per night. I booked the first night of my stay via AmexTravel.com to use the $200 annual Fine Hotels + Resorts (FHR) credit available with The Platinum Card® from American Express. I booked 1 night at the FHR rate of $461 and received a $200 prepaid hotel statement credit.

In addition to the statement credit, FHR offers several valuable benefits during the stay. (I’ll let you know how those benefits were delivered shortly.)

I booked the second night using Marriott Bonvoy points earned from my Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant® American Express® Card. The cash rate for that night was over $500, or I could use 62,000 Marriott Bonvoy points. We value Marriott Bonvoy points at 0.7 cents each, the equivalent of $434 worth of points for booking the second night — which I decided to do.

Although not a great savings, using Marriott Bonvoy points was a better deal than paying cash for my stay. Image Credit: Marriott Bonvoy

Alternatively, I could have waited for my annual Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant card’s free night certificate, redeemable for up to 85,000 points, and used it to cover my second night. I’ll save that certificate for a more expensive hotel.

Location

The Reykjavik EDITION is located in Iceland’s capital city, Reykjavik, about an hour away from Keflavik International Airport (KEF), the main airport on the island.

Reykjavik Edition Hotel Transport

The Reykjavik EDITION is located on Reykjavik Harbor. Conveniently located bus stops are established throughout the city allowing transport and tour companies to pick up/drop off visitors near the downtown hotels. There is a stop located within a block of The Reykjavik EDITION.

Transport and Arrival

Fortunately, it’s easy to find transport to the city and the hotel. I have previously used both the FlyBus (several times) and the Airport Direct bus service. Each company has excellent service and free Wi-Fi onboard.

On this trip, I purchased Airport Direct tickets on arrival at KEF airport for about $35 one-way and hopped on one of the waiting buses outside the airport. I took the bus to the main station and then was transported by minibus to bus stop #5 in front of the hotel.

Checking In

Approaching the hotel from the bus stop, I immediately saw the entrance.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Approach
Hotels in Iceland generally have a utilitarian appearance designed to fit in with the surrounding landscape.

On the opposite side of the hotel was the vehicle drop-off. Both entries led to the hotel lobby.

Many flights from North America arrive early in the morning. Checking in before the scheduled hotel check-in time of 3 p.m. can often be challenging. Fortunately, having booked via FHR, I checked in at noon, a guaranteed benefit when available.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Reception
The hotel has modern decor with stark contrasts, as evidenced by the reception area.

The lobby immediately felt comfortable and cozy.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Lobby
There were several seating areas in the lobby, one with a lovely working fireplace.

This area of the lobby included a unique stone structure and seating with sheepskin. Sheepskin was found in nearly every space throughout the hotel. I was told that it was specially sheered and dyed for use at many EDITION properties.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Lobby Seating
This structure was oddly comfortable.

Elite Benefits

Cristina checked me in and did a great job describing the hotel offerings and explaining all my benefits.

I am fortunate to have Marriott Bonvoy Titanium Elite status, which was recognized at check-in. I was able to combine my FHR benefits with my elite benefits. The FHR rules specifically allow guests with Marriott Bonvoy Elite status to enjoy the benefits of both programs during their stay.

In addition to the verbal overview, I received a written confirmation of benefits, which included early check-in and late checkout, a room upgrade (when available), daily breakfast for 2, and a $100 experience credit.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel FHR Benefits
The benefits of booking via Amex FHR are many.

The hotel charges a destination fee of around $40. The destination fee includes access to the spa (normally $30), a welcome drink, and a $40 lunch or dinner credit. It was explained that the intent of the fee is for guests to experience hotel amenities.

In addition to the destination fee’s $40 dining credit, I had the $100 FHR credit to use during my stay.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Chocolate
These unique Icelandic chocolates were delivered to my room shortly after check-in. There may be 1 or 2 missing.

Amenities

The hotel is loaded with high-end amenities. Here are some of the facilities I found at the hotel.

The Spa at The Reykjavik EDITION

The spa is open daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. by appointment and the destination fee includes access to the spa facilities.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Spa Entrance
The calming entrance area of the spa.

One highlight of the spa area was the spa bar. I was able to grab a healthy refreshment while relaxing.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Spa Bar
The spa bar served healthy refreshments.

Services at the spa included massages, body wraps/scrubs, and facials. Included were a hammam/steam room, plunge pool, and sauna.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Hammam
After experiencing a Turkish hammam, you can cool off with a dip in the plunge pool.

The Gym

The gym can be utilized 24/7 and was fully outfitted with the latest equipment.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Fitness Center
The area was compact but well-equipped.

Use of the gym is complimentary for all hotel guests. While the area is quite dark, it had everything needed for a good workout. Cardiovascular equipment, exercise bikes, elliptical machines, and strength equipment were all provided.

In addition, there was an area with free weights, treadmills, and a rowing machine.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Treadmill
Several mirrors created the illusion of the space being larger than it is.

A nice cold towel and ice-cold water made for a refreshing end to a workout.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Gym Entrance
The space included a large TV as well.

Meetings and Events

The hotel has 4 meeting spaces, of which 3 can be combined into 1 large meeting space. Up to 300 guests can be accommodated in the largest space.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Meeting Room
The largest area can hold up to 300 guests depending on the room configuration needed.

The hotel can provide all the supporting services and equipment for any event, including weddings.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Boardroom
In addition to the large banquet space, there is a functional and attractive boardroom.

Parking

Valet parking is available for hotel guests for approximately $46 per day. There are also several public parking facilities within walking distance. Parking rates vary by zone and day of the week but the hotel is located where parking is at a premium. Expect to pay around $1.50 per hour.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Parking
Secure underground parking was available.
Hot Tip:

Learn more about parking in Reykjavik, including details on parking zones, car parks, and how to pay.

Pet Policy

Pets are not allowed at the hotel. Service animals are welcome.

The Room — Corner Suite

The hotel has 226 modern rooms, 26 suites, and a penthouse. I originally booked the Guest King room type. I wasn’t upgraded to the penthouse but, according to the front desk associate, I was given the second-best level room in the hotel — the Corner Suite.

The approach to my room #518 was quite understated, but I was optimistic the room would not disappoint.

Entry

When a dining room is the first space you see, you know the room will be special. The front desk had informed me that the room was a corner room, so I had high expectations.

The room was gorgeous with more space than I would ever utilize.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Room
This is probably one of the best hotel rooms I have ever stayed in.

Dining Area

While I certainly wouldn’t use the dining area, you never know when I might meet 7 interesting people to invite to my room.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Dining
The dining area included a table for 8, a decorative bookcase, and a TV.

Living Area

Since the room was a corner room, the views from the living area were lovely.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Living Area
The spacious living area was comfortable.

When I arrived, it was cloudy, windy, and sleeting. As time went on, the skies cleared. That’s when I appreciated all the wonderful places to sit and look at the surrounding landscape.

The chaise lounge was so comfortable it could be used as an extra bed. Notice that that comfy Iceland wool is abundant.

There were 3 TVs in the suite. I enjoyed 35 channels, of which many were English-speaking. I also had the ability to sync the monitor with my phone or other device.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel TV
Each room had a 54-inch TV available.

A console in the living space held the minibar and coffee station.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Console
This console neatly hid the coffee station, minibar, and additional items.

When opened, a full minibar with snacks and drink choices was available for purchase.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Minibar
While the minibar was well stocked, prices were predictably high.

A nice Nespresso machine with a selection of coffee, teas, and condiments came in handy when waking up early.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Coffee Station
it’s always a treat to have in-room coffee.

In-Room Internet

I was very pleased with the internet speed throughout the hotel, especially in the room.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Speedtest
Internet speeds were more than adequate for working online.

The View

These pictures don’t do the view justice as the mountains were much closer than they appeared. That’s the “Harpa” event venue next door, the harbor, and the mountain landscape.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Harpa View
Evening view from my bedroom window.

With floor-to-ceiling windows throughout, I had direct views of the entire harbor.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Harbor View
This was just a portion of the harbor view.

Bedroom

Like the living area, the bedroom had floor-to-ceiling windows. I didn’t close the blinds at night as I could see the mountains until very late.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Bedroom
Complete with a king bed, the bedroom was a comfortable space.

My king bed was heavenly and the wool throw was nice for cuddling in the bedroom chair.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Bed
The bed was super comfortable.

The bedroom seating, unfortunately, became my work area. It was the only area with easy access to an electrical outlet. The dining area was a good backup.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Bedroom Chair
While the chair was comfy, it was not appropriate for working.

Nightstands are not discussed much, but they’re important. This nightstand had a Bluetooth speaker, pottery to hold my water at night, and the standard electrical outlets, personal light, and master switches.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Left Nightstand
Nightstand #1 came with pottery!

On the opposite side of the bed, the nightstand had a phone, electrical outlet, USB-A ports, switches, a personal light, a pencil/paper, and a room service menu.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Right Nightstand
Nightstand #2 contained useful USB-A ports.

The bedroom closet had all the standard elements, including robes, laundry bags, slippers, and a luggage rack. It also included a clothing steamer and clothes brush.

There were 2 closets in the space, with the first located near the front entrance to the room. It was the same as the previously mentioned closet but contained just hangers and a luggage rack.

The room safe was also in this closet and hidden by a door. There were 2 handy storage drawers.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Safe
The safe was hidden inside the closet cabinet.

Bathroom

I certainly had enough bathroom space as the room included a full bath and a half bath. The full bath had 3 separate rooms: one for the vanity area, one for the shower/bathtub, and an additional room for the toilet.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Vanity
The vanity area was very spacious.

Shower amenities were EDITION-branded but made by Le Labo (a perfumery in Paris and New York). The products had a mesmerizing aroma.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Shower Amenities
Full-sized amenities were scented with wonderful fragrances.

Additional amenities included the standard dental packets, shoe mitt, shower cap, and shave kit.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Amenities
A box containing extra amenities was located on the lower shelf of the vanity.

Don’t even ask how I took this image of the bathtub/shower area. I just thought it was unique enough to try and share a bird’s-eye view of the entire space.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Shower Tub
The shower/bathtub combo area was unique.

An additional room, separate from the vanity and shower room, held the toilet. Three private areas plus another half bath would make life easier for a family.

Food and Beverage

I had so many food and beverage credits that it almost became difficult to use them all. In total, I had $180 for 1 person over 2 days.

Here’s an overview of all the places to dine or have drinks at the hotel.

TIDES Restaurant

Breakfast, which was included in my stay, was served at the TIDES Restaurant between 7 and 11 a.m. I could select the buffet or order à la carte off the menu, up to a maximum of 6,000 Icelandic króna (approximately $42).

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel TIDES Restaurant
TIDES restaurant was the venue for both breakfast and dinner.

I scoped out the breakfast buffet before deciding between it and ordering off the menu.

First up was the bread station. I could select from several varieties of pastries, muffins, homemade artisan bread, and commercially-made loaf-style bread. A toaster, plus butter and jams, were also provided.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Bread Station
The bread station was set up in front of the open kitchen.

I could use 1 of the 2 self-service coffee machines to make a brew.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Coffee
If ordering the buffet, I would retrieve my coffee from one of these machines.

A selection of juices, teas, and water was also available. Juices included orange, apple, and cranberry. Prosecco was also a nice alcoholic option.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Juices
Various juices and prosecco were available.

Hot items on the buffet included hard-boiled eggs, hash browns, baked beans, bacon, mushrooms, scrambled eggs, and porridge.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Hot Foods
All the hot items were replenished quickly.

The cereal and yogurt section offered varied items, including chia pudding, muesli, dry cereal, toppings, and Icelandic skyr.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Cereal
Iceland skyr is one of my favorite breakfast items.

As expected in the North Atlantic, a nice spread of salmon was offered. A cheese selection and sliced luncheon meats, typical of a European breakfast, rounded out this section.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Meats
Salmon was a popular item and the staff kept it stocked for the guests.

A nice green salad is a healthy way to start the day and the buffet had all the ingredients.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Salad
Fresh ingredients made it easy to add some greens to my breakfast.

I am more of a vegetable than a fruit person, but one has to appreciate having fresh fruit on an island in the North Atlantic.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Fruit
The variety of fresh fruit changed daily.

At the end of the buffet were warm waffles, traditional Icelandic pastries, and pancakes.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Waffles
Kleinur crullers, a traditional Icelandic pastry (like donuts), were available on the buffet.

Although the buffet was well stocked, I ordered from the menu. The poached eggs were more than enough to eat.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Eggs
Poached eggs on avocado toast.

Dinner is served in the restaurant from 5:30 to 10 p.m. Because I enjoyed the benefit of having $100 in onsite FHR credits, I had a lovely dinner at TIDES restaurant.

The TIDES Bar is located in the center of the restaurant and has a separate menu for those wanting a lighter fare.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel TIDES Bar
The TIDES Bar is a great place for a lighter dinner.

I ordered the cod, which was very good. I’m not crazy about a sweet glaze on anything, and while the menu omitted this detail, it was still pretty good. Dinner with a glass of wine was about $70.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Cod
Cod with charred carrots, whole peas, mushy peas, and clams.

This salty caramel, roasted banana, brownie chunk dessert was incredible.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Dessert
I normally don’t order dessert but it was given to me by the chef to try after my meal. It was yummy.

The second night I ordered the Arctic char. It is one of my favorite cold water fish dishes and was delicious. A beetroot puree and local brie were a wonderful compliment.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Char Fish
This was the best fish dish I had at the hotel.

TIDES Cafe

The TIDES Cafe, separate from the TIDES Restaurant, was available for a light breakfast, snack, or lunch. It was open daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel TIDES Cafe
TIDES Cafe is a bakery that offers pastries and more.

TIDES Cafe is a bakery and mostly serves bread items such as pastries and sandwiches. The cafe also sold a large selection of beverages.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Beverages
The beverage selection at the TIDES Cafe was extensive.

The cafe was cozy and compact, but you could sit, cuddle with a sheepskin, and savor a beverage.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Cafe Seating
The TIDES Cafe offered items to eat in or take away.

TIDES Counter

A private dining area seating up to 8 individuals is available for a special experience. The TIDES chefs will prepare a 12-course meal paired with locally sourced ingredients. A unique wine pairing is included with each course. The experience is currently priced at about $230 per person. Reservations are required.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel TIDES Counter
Guests watch as the chefs prepare their special meals.

The ROOF

Interestingly, The Reykjavik EDITION has the only rooftop bar in Reykjavik! The ROOF bar’s rarity makes it popular with hotel guests and locals. I couldn’t wait to check it out.

The bar was open 6 to 11 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday, and from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. It is closed on Monday and Tuesday.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel ROOF Bar
The ROOF bar is open year-round.

The view up there was amazing. With the long days, you could see the snow-covered mountains, even in the evening.

Reykjavik EDITION ROOF Bar View
Grab a seat, wrap up with a sheepskin, and enjoy your favorite cocktail.

Lobby Bar

The Lobby Bar was a great place to enjoy a cocktail, burger, tuna tacos, or specialty flatbread. The best experience, however, was speaking with strangers and people watching.

And this is where I needed to claim my included welcome drink.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Lobby Bar
The Lobby Bar was centrally located between the 2 entrances to the lobby, making it great for people watching.

TÖLT

Not everyone can enter TÖLT, a private speakeasy bar. If you’re a VIP or a lucky Marriott Bonvoy Elite, you may receive an invitation with a secret password. Yes, I did receive an invitation! It was vinyl night and there was a DJ rockin’. The bartender was proud of his special homemade pickled onions perfected for a unique Gibson cocktail.

The space is “open” from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. but only on Fridays and Saturdays, and only if you can score an invitation.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Speakeasy
The TÖLT cocktail bar is an invitation-only space, hidden behind closed doors.

The space is also used for private and hotel-sponsored events.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Speakeasy Bar
The speakeasy bar space is stunning.

Sunset

Previously, Sunset was a nightclub. The space is now closed to the public but available to book for private events.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Sunset
The Sunset club is available for private parties.

Room Service

Room service is available from 7 a.m. until midnight.

Service

Service is where the hotel shines. Yes, the views are amazing, the location is prime, and the facilities are some of the best.

Because I won’t always score that corner suite, I want to know I can receive value in other ways. A decent room would be expected here, but great service elevates the stay.

Cristina at the front desk was delightful and helpful. Magdalena helped me tremendously and was responsible for my speakeasy invitation. Guito, the chef, was both talented and cordial. And my server, Gordon, took the time to make my meal feel special, even during a busy Friday night.

I was only at the hotel for 2 nights but it was a lovely stay and a fine experience.

Surrounding Area

The Reykjavik EDITION is perfectly located for exploring Reykjavik. Here are some of the sites I’ve enjoyed during my visit to the area.

Harpa Concert Hall — The Harpa is the city’s iconic cultural venue, conveniently located adjacent to the hotel. Its striking architecture makes the building a focal point of the city and a destination for music festivals, symphonies, art exhibits, performances, and concerts.

Reykjavik EDITION Hotel Harpa
The Harpa shares the same waterfront space as the hotel.

Laugavegur Street — I could never be bored on Laugavegur Street. With its funky vibe, hip shops, bars, street art, and museums, there’s always something to do. This main shopping street is a convenient 10-minute walk from the hotel.

Laugavegur Street Reykjavik
Enjoy the street art, dining options, and shopping on Laugavegur Street.

The Best Hotdog in the World? — Iceland’s take on the best hotdog you’ll ever eat is just a few blocks from the hotel. Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur had served up the best food value in town since 1937. Order your dog with everything to experience it the way it was intended.

Hot Dog Stand Reykjavik
You may have to wait in line at this world-famous hotdog stand. Bill Clinton and Kim Kardashian are fans.

Happy Hour — Alcohol in Iceland is expensive. It’s not unusual to find $25 cocktails. The best way to save on alcohol is to pick up a supply at KEF airport duty-free before leaving (use this guide for pricing). The second best way is to secure alcohol from a licensed outlet like Vínbúðin. There are only 2 in the city centre, with one just a few blocks from The Reykjavik EDITION. The third way is to take advantage of the plentiful happy hours offered at neighborhood bars around the hotel and on Laugavegur Street.

Tour Groups— I have booked several Iceland day tours while staying at Reykjavik hotels. Tour companies will pick you up at the hotel or the nearest bus stop, typically not more than a couple blocks away. I’ve done the Golden Circle a few times, the South Shore tour, the Puffin boat, and more. The marina area where you can join puffin and whale excursions is just a few blocks from the hotel. I have used several tour companies and all were great.

Kerid Crater Iceland
A Golden Circle tour may include the Kerid Crater. Colors are best in the fall.

Hallgrimskirkja Church — Within walking distance of the hotel sits the largest church in Iceland. During your visit, you can climb the stairs to the top of the tower for a grand view of Reykjavik. The structure contains the largest concert organ in the country and is built in a modern expressionist style both on the interior and exterior.

Reykjavik Church
Hallgrimskirkja Church is the largest church in Iceland.

This is just a fraction of what there is to do in Reykjavik. For more information on additional activities, here’s a quick list to get you started.

Final Thoughts

The Reykjavik EDITION Hotel is one of the nicest hotels in Iceland. Your experience may not be as grand as mine, but the hotel is worth considering if you have FHR benefits with the Amex Platinum card.

Marriott Bonvoy Elite members are also treated well at the hotel. I personally wouldn’t pay $800 a night to stay, but good value may be found during the shoulder seasons with FHR benefits or by using Marriott Bonvoy points or free night certificates.
