Kvosin Downtown Hotel
Housed in a traditional 19th-century Icelandic townhouse, Kvosin Downtown Hotel underwent a clever renovation in 2013, which saw it purposefully reimagined with the modern traveller in mind. The property's 24 apartments fall across four different room categories: Cosy, Big, Bigger and Biggest. That weekend getaway with your gang? The bigger room is for you. Sleeping up to four, king-sized beds are lined with linen cushions, nightstands are topped with fresh bouquets and an open-plan living area comes complete with a cosy sofa and knitted throws. Our favourite part, aside from the airy en-suite stuffed with organic toiletries, is the slick kitchenette, which offers all the luxury trimmings - think a marble-topped island, leather stools and a selection of handcrafted tableware. Skip to the ground floor to find a whisky-soaked menu at Klaustar Bar, where over 40 different labels are on offer - in addition to a selection of Spanish-style tapas bites.
