Hilton unveils a new property in Iceland, called Iceland Parliament Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton, which opened its doors in Reykjavik, the Icelandic Capital.
In a complex of seven rebuilt and new buildings, the 163-room hotel sits at the doorstep of the Icelandic parliament, Alþingi, joining Curio Collection by Hilton, a global portfolio of more than 130 properties.
New construction, reconstruction, and careful preservation maintain the important heritage of the building. Between the Ladies' School and Independence Hall, to the modern new building, the most significative feature is the restoration of the old Landsímahúsið, which reflects the architectural style of the local Austurvöllur Square.
Regarding the F&B offering, the hotel features Hjá Jóni Restaurant which serves local delicacies with an international flair and took its name from the founding father of Icelandic independence in the 19th century and Telebar which is inspired by the former headquarters of Iceland Telecom and the center of international communication in the 20th century.
In addition, the property offers a spa area with traditional Icelandic geothermal hot tubs, sauna and steambaths and an exercise area. Finally, the newly-renovated Independence can accommodate up to 200 guests, and other function spaces include the Ladies School with a capacity of up to 100 guests.
We are delighted to welcome guests to our grand and unique new hotel. It has been a long and meticulous process to develop this property in such a precious place in the heart of the city. Whether guests are here to connect with our culture and nature, or if they‘re simply here to meet others at a conference or event, we believe we have something very special to offer. Our rich history, along with the proximity to both the Parliament and City Hall, as well as the original city square and many of the top attractions in Reykjavik, makes Iceland Parliament Hotel an unmatched space for a truly unique experience.
