Sand Hotel by Keahotels

Historic Reykjavik Boutique Break with Daily Breakfast

Sand Hotel by Keahotels logo

Discover historic and hip Reykjavik with a stay at the contemporary Sand Hotel by Keahotels. This unique boutique escape neighbours three of the city's most famous historic buildings: Iceland’s oldest tailor, Verslun Guðsteins Eyjólfssonar; one of the city’s best bakeries, Sandholt; and the birthplace of Nobel-Prize-winning writer Halldór Laxness. All this history also happens to be perched on the city’s buzzing shopping strip, Laugavegur, surrounded by restaurants, cafés, boutiques and bars. Famous attractions, like the Hallgrímskirkja church, are also just a short wander away.

The hotel’s unique history is showcased with pride at Sand Hotel. In the lobby, a number of Laxness' books sit beside contemporary photographs and paintings by local artists. In the rooms and suites, headboards and pillows are upholstered with fabric from Verslun Guðsteins Eyjólfssonar, while freshly baked goods from Sandholt make up part of the hotel's satisfying breakfast spread. While leaving your bed’s embrace may seem impossible, the resolute will be rewarded – there are countless day trips to embark upon, and plenty of city highlights to discover.
