    Rooms 18 /The Original Sigurlaug Sverrisdóttir

    Embodying the spirit of adventurous travel and cool Nordic design that dwells in its sister property Ion Adventure Hotel, the 18-room Ion City Hotel is the citified version of Ion’s original award-winning countryside retreat. Located in the heart of Reykjavik, with access to many shops, cafés, bars, and restaurants, Ion City is housed in a smartly renovated building that retains its original architectural beauty yet is augmented by outside walls featuring a motif inspired by traditional Icelandic weaving. Inside, guests discover luxuriously organic interiors defined by clean lines, Icelandic art, and a palette of gray and white, contrasted by warm-hued wooden floors. Here, a world of gunmetal grays, fine-grained woods, and regional design pieces are bathed in light that spills in through large windows that offer expansive panoramic views of Reykjavik. A stay at Ion City also includes farm-fresh cuisine, a go-to bar for locals, a gym, and a private dining room.

    Interior Design

    Designed by Minarc, the Icelandic architectural duo who also worked on the sister Adventure property, the hotel is a proud showcase of national themes and design, with interiors that make clever references to all things Icelandic. The lobby, for example, imitates the countryside with a real birch tree behind the reception desk and a custom-designed “bird’s nest” light hanging from the ceiling.

    SIGURLAUG SVERRISDÓTTIR

    A former cabin-crew member, Sigurlaug Sverrisdottir is no stranger to the virtues of travel. No surprise then that prior to opening Ion Adventure Hotel in 2013, the Icelander had also established a successful company that organized adventure tours to Switzerland, and provided training and recruitment services to airlines. With her husband Halldor Hafsteinsson, who previously held the position of CFO at the same Icelandic airline, Sverrisdottir has triumphantly channeled their travel experiences into Ion Adventure Hotel, set in Iceland’s incomparable natural landscape, and Ion City Hotel, which redefines the small hotel experience in Reykjavik.
