Recommendation for pre-cruise hotel in Reykjavik

Recommended Posts

We are sailing on Windstar-Star Legend in August 2020. Any input on pre cruise hotels and what we should see/do as well as how many days we should plan. Thanks

You've mistakenly posted in the forum for getting help in using the message boards. 

 

You need to post your questions in the Ports of Call/Europe/Northern Europe forum:

 

https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/116-northern-europe-amp-baltic-sea/

 

And I think you would find it helpful to spend some time on the home Categories page of the boards, browsing through the various forums, so you know what goes where.  🙂

Looks like they moved your question to the right forum!

 

Iceland is amazing, you should spend as much time as you can afford there.

 

Staying in the city is fine for a 1 or 2 day visit, but for anything longer you should try to spend your nights away from a city.

 

For Reykjavik hotels you want to be in the 101 Postal Code (you'll see those three numbers in Iceland addresses) to be centrally located.

 

Let us know how much time you will stay for ideas on what to do

I stayed at the CenterHotel Midgardur in Reykjavik and would definitely recommend it. The accommodations were reasonably priced (for Iceland) and included an excellent breakfast buffet each day. In addition, independent tour buses stop right outside that hotel. From the hotel, it's an easy 15-20 minute walk down Reykjavik's main shopping street into the center of the city. If you'd prefer something right in Reykjavik's city center though, I've heard good things about Canopy by Hilton, the Kvosin Hotel, Reykjavik Konsulat Hotel and the Reykjavik Residence Hotel if you're looking for more apartment-style accommodations. I agree with Nitemare - Iceland is amazing! Do try to allow as much time as you can afford. I wasn't staying too long and did two great small group tours with Hidden Iceland while I was in Reykjavik. Their Golden Circle and South Coast tours were both excellent. Have a fantastic time on your Windstar cruise and enjoy your stay in Iceland!
