About us

Kvosin Downtown Hotel was opened in June 2013 after the historic building had been completely refurbished to the specifications of the demanding modern traveler.

The Kvosin Concierge team is available 24 hours a day to make plans and organize the activities of our guests, whether they be in the planning stages of their trip, on the way to Iceland or in house, we´ll take care of everything for our guests. making the most out of your visit.

All 24 rooms/apartments have spacious living areas and cooking facilities as well as typically warm but cool Scandinavian design.

The word “Kvosin” stands for the area that constitutes the exact center of the center of downtown Reykjavik. One could, therefore, argue that Kvosin Downtown is doublespeak.

There are plenty of great options when it comes to accommodation in Reykjavik. So what has made Kvosin so dear to our guests? Well, let us give you a few reasons why.


The word “Kvosin” is the local word for the center of downtown Reykjavik. It is not an overstatement to say that we have the best location to stay in downtown Reykjavik.

We are a hotel because of the services we provide but our rooms cannot really be considered mere rooms. They are suites, studios, apartments.

We´re lucky to have her setting the standards.
