Hlemmur Square opened in Reykjavik in late spring 2013, combining the social experience of a hostel with the amenities of a hotel. We have created an experience that is new to Iceland with affordable yet stylish hostel accommodations as well as luxurious hotel rooms, with all guests able to access the shared spaces. The lobby, restaurant, lounge and library are designed for socializing in relaxed style.
Built in the 1930s, our five-story art-deco building embraces old and new design elements with a traditionally appointed, vibrant lobby that recalls the colorful houses that make up the city’s landscape, while the rooms are modern and highlight Reykjavik’s contemporary look.
Located conveniently near Reykjavik’s shopping, nightlife, restaurants, galleries and swimming pools, Hlemmur Square also features an attentive concierge team who can help plan your adventure to popular Iceland attractions and current city events.
