Canopy Reykjavik’s spot on city centre location has its own unique potential to explore. The site has been a hotbed of everything related to any grassroots genre, in art, music, fashion and Icelandic filmmaking.
The 115 luxurious rooms vary in size and style from one house to another, creating an eclectic atmosphere of local individuality. Local art and quirky design referring to the site’s history as Reykjavik’s hot pot for underground, upcoming rock bands and local artists of all kinds will be a thread through the hotel. Drop your bag on the luggage shelf, hang your coat on the open rack and take in the view from the window chaise. There is a place for everything and everything is where it belongs. A palette of honest, natural and warm materials creates calm and tranquil room. The clean lines and thoughtful use of space put you at ease while the delightful details emerge; furniture that is simple in its comfort, true to its function, a bathroom that invites and certainly a few local touches.
The design of the hotel is that which the Nordic countries have become renowned for; luxurious simplicity of fresh approach and clean lines. Dashes of strong colours and graffiti will however playfully blend in, paying tribute to the hotel’s history as the main hub for underground artists and rock bands.
