Hilton Canopy Reykjavik Reviews
Very nice Hotel - First of its brand Feb 16, 2017
The Hilton Canopy Reykjavik is the first of a new line of hotels by Hilton called the Canopy line. This hotel was simply fantastic. I booked it on the Hilton Black Friday / cyber monday deal, otherwise it is easily $300 - 400 a night. I stayed here the first night we were in Iceland.
After landing in Reykavik (and not sleeping on the short 5 1/2 hour plane flight) we found our Bus to the city. They took us first to the city bus station, then directly to the hotel - no transfer for us (which was good cause we were in zombie mode).
Upon arrival to the hotel we ran off the bus, and headed straight to the lobby. Good thing we did, because it was 8 am, and we just snagged the only room they had ready for occupants :)
The host was cute and great, and she gave us a giant block of icelandic chocolate that was made in madagascar :)
They also gave us a breakfast voucher, which is a good thing. The breakfast was a zoo, but we got some badly needed coffee and food in us. Also the bed was amazing, and I had a tough time awaking the wife to get her to go out and explore the city.
The hotel is called the "canopy" because it has a giant canopy overlooking the city. When the northern lights are available they have a viewing party up there.... it was cloudy the hole time we in iceland though :(
They also have an evening reception with samples of beer and local food. The local food was a gross pickled herring, i gave it a college try but its not my thing... sort of like medical school.
This hotel was fantastic, hopefully they open one of these in Houston and Shanghai and Rome.
Location was great, only thing that really could do better is the layout is a little confusing, a lot of elevators that go no where, and sort of has a cruise ship vibe. Note the hotel does not have parking.
