Reykjavík Konsúlat Hotel
Reykjavik Konsulat Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton in the bustling Icelandic capital and the first property in the country for Hilton’s upper upscale collection has just opened up its doors to curious visitors. The location of the new hotel was once a 1900s department store, and the new charming building is decorated with eclectic architecture that nods to historical times. The hotel is part of the exclusive Curio Collection by Hilton, a global portfolio of nearly 50 upper upscale, one-of-a-kind hotels and resorts all celebrated for their individuality.
The interiors of the 50 rooms hotel pay tribute to the historical grandeur of Consul Thomsen, the owner of the historical department store Thomsen Magasin. Thomsen welcomed the first foreign dignitaries in the 19th Century, establishing a legacy of international hospitality in Iceland. There is an authentic connection to the history of the Thomsen family throughout the hotel, starting with the welcome gift on arrival and the timeless, black and white photography in the stylish guest rooms.
