Reykjavik Consulate Hotel will join luxury and upscale Curio properties in cities around the world, including the recently opened Reichshof Hamburg, and properties under development in London, Paris, Dubai and Istanbul.
Situated meters from the Harpa Conference and Concert Hall, the hotel is expected to welcome its first guests in 2018.
Consistent with the capital’s eclectic architecture, the development will restore a number of traditional properties and reflect the Icelandic aesthetic. Amongst these is the building which housed Thomsens Magasin – Reykjavik’s first department store.
Detlev Thomsen was the German consul for Iceland and in welcoming the first foreign dignitaries in the 19th Century, established a lasting legacy of international hospitality on the island.
With 50 guest rooms, the hotel’s interiors draw influence from Reykjavik’s heritage, with natural building materials used throughout.
The hotel’s spa will incorporate an original 19th century stone wall, and its interior reflects the tradition of natural bathing in Icelandic culture.
