Today marks the opening of Reykjavik Konsulat Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton in the bustling Icelandic capital and the first property in the country for Hilton's upper upscale collection. The location of the new hotel was once a 1900s department store and the new charming building has been decorated with eclectic architecture that nods to historic times. The hotel is part of the exclusive Curio Collection by Hilton, a global portfolio of nearly 50 upper upscale, one-of-a-kind hotels and resorts all celebrated for their individuality.

Situated in the heart of downtown Reykjavik, the hotel is perfectly located for those seeking a cultural experience or entertainment; with Iceland's Parliament, main shopping street and top restaurants and nightlife only a short walk away. For natural beauty, head to Old Reykjavik Har-bour and the Sun Voyager sculpture or step back in time with a visit to the nearby stunning Hallgrímskirkja Church, National Museum of Iceland and Reykjavik Art Museum.

The interiors of the hotel pay tribute to the historical grandeur of Consul Thomsen, the owner of the historic department store. Thomsen welcomed the first foreign dignitaries in the 19th Century, establishing a legacy of international hospitality in Iceland. There is an authentic connection to the history of the Thomsen family throughout the hotel, starting with the welcome gift at arrival and the timeless, black and white photography in the stylish guest rooms.
