Ion City Hotel Lobby in Reykjavik

Interior design Minarc

Enter a world of gunmetal grays, grained woods, and local design pieces bathed in light that spills in through large windows.

Designed by Minarc, the Icelandic architectural duo who also worked on the sister Ion Adventure property, the hotel is a proud showcase of national themes and design, with interiors that make clever references to all things Icelandic. The lobby, for example, imitates the countryside with a real birch tree behind the reception desk and a custom-designed “bird’s nest” light hanging from the ceiling.

Architecture The weft of Reykjavik

Ion City is housed in a smartly renovated building that retains its original architectural beauty...

augmented by walls featuring a motif inspired by traditional Icelandic weaving. Indeed, tradition is at the heart of Ion City’s architectural thinking as the hotel immerses guests in the city, inviting them to look outward at the environment around them.
