Quantcast Next Stop: Iceland and Reykjavik’s CenterHotel Thingholt - Five Star Alliance

Next Stop: Iceland and Reykjavik’s CenterHotel Thingholt

May 29, 2007 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

CenterHotel Thingholt Jet to Iceland to enjoy light-filled June days (try 20 hours of daylight!), Reykjavik's hot party scene, and exquisite natural landscapes: glaciers, hot springs, geysers, and volcanoes. The place to stay is CenterHotel Thingholt, one of the best hotels in the capital. Newly opened in December 2006, the boutique hotel is a model for contemporary Icelandic design. Inspired by the country's extraordinary natural bounty, the Icelandic architect Gulla Jónsdóttir incorporated materials like salmon fish skin tiles, leather flooring, and lava-like black stone in a minimalist Nordic style. There's even a waterfall in the lobby. Chic guest rooms offer toiletries crafted with the mineral-rich waters of the Blue Lagoon geothermal springs. Housed in a renovated printing factory, the hotel demonstrates a strong focus on quality modern design. Located next to Laugavegur, Reykjavik's main shopping street, in the trendy Oceanside 101 neighborhood, the hotel is close to everything the vibrant city center has to offer.

P.S. TripAdvisor's Traveler Reviews are stellar.
