Available in varying categories, the 59 stylish and quirky rooms and suites have contemporary Scandinavian decor, painted walls adorned with black and white photographs and abstract artworks, and bright soft furnishings in hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Modern amenities include a flat screen TV, complimentary Wi-Fi, telephone, tea and coffee-making facilities, and en suite bathroom with shower, hairdryer, and toiletries. The Guest rooms are small yet spacious enough for unwinding after days of sightseeing, while the larger Junior Suites offer the added luxury of a living area with a sofa.
You’ll be staying in the small village of Reykjahlíð, just a short distance away from Lake Mývatn. Attractions nearby include the Sigurgeir's Bird Museum and the Mývatn Nature Baths. You’ll also be within easy driving distance to the north of Iceland’s gateways, including Akureyri and Húsavík.
Food and drink
Pulling focus on modern Icelandic cuisine and local specialties using fresh and seasonal ingredients, the refined Mylla restaurant offers a varied à la carte lunch and dinner menu as well as a choice of international wines. There’s also a bar for snacks and daily happy hours from 4pm to 6pm. The buffet style breakfast includes hot and cold dishes.
Icelandair Hotel Mývatn welcomes children and family rooms are available.
Facilities and activities
The hotel has outdoor hot tubs that are ideal for viewing the northern lights when they are visible during the winter.
Environmental and social responsibility
To avoid overwhelming the town’s small sewage system, Icelandair Hotel Mývatn has vacuum toilets. These are loud if flushed with the lid open, so they should be closed after use. Guests who reuse towels and linens will be given credits that can be redeemed at the bar.
