Reykjavik gets new ‘design hotel’


Ion City Hotel opens with eye-catching design
A new hotel in Reykjavik is in its soft-opening phase, with the “spirit of adventurous travel and cool Nordic design”, Berlin-based hospitality services company Design Hotels reports.
Related to the countryside-set Ion Adventure Hotel, the 18-room Ion City Hotel is the ‘citified’ version of the original retreat. The same “respect for Icelandic aesthetics and sourcing is evidenced”, but using “top international design firms” means the city version has a cosmopolitan character.
Located on the city’s main avenue Laugarvegur, Ion City is close to Reykjavik’s cafés, bars, restaurants and galleries. On property, it has a North African-accented restaurant.
Exterior walls feature a motif inspired by traditional Icelandic weaving. There is an extensive outdoor mural by Krístin Morthens, daughter of Icelandic artist Tolli Morthens. And an inner alleyway and courtyard reveals an “abstract expression of an Icelandic landscape”.
