The hotel, which is set to open in the second quarter of 2020, will enjoy a beneficial location not far from the city center and the Harpa Concert Hall. The hotel’s building is not new. It is a converted building of a famous warehouse constructed in the 40s of the previous century. Needless to say, the property will be modernized so it fits all strict standards of Meininger.

Besides that, the new Reykjavik hotel will feature the guest feature and the zone where visitors can play games. The hotel’s design will be individual and will be developed in accordance with its location and heritage of the place.

The city regularly hosts various events and festivals. The size of Iceland is one more advantage for travelers. As all landmarks are located relatively not far away from each other, it is possible to see most places of interested within a day or two.

Meininger CEO expressed the company’s delight about the deal. As air accessibility of Iceland is improving, the country becomes an important destination for travelers from both Europe and North America. The hotelier hopes that their new hotel will be suitable for individual tourists, groups of visitors, and a small number of business travelers that visit the capital. The Reykjavik project is not the only one for Meininger as the hotelier plans to open hotels in Budapest and Paris in 2019.
