Hotel Hilda ***  is a boutique hotel in the center of Reykjavik located on Bárugata 11, a quiet street, and only a 3 minute walk to downtown. The hotel opened in May 2012 after a complete renovation in which the old guesthouse received an entire facelift and became a boutique hotel.

Hotel Hilda is open 24 hours. Offers you 15 rooms on 4 floors; the rooms are bright, quaint and comfortable. All rooms are singularly decorated with astonishing photography portraying Icelandic bird wild life.

In May 2015, a new owner took over the hotel,  she continued the hard work of the previous owner by preserving the charm and character of this historical house and adding pieces of art on the walls, all made by local artists, Icelandic handcrafts were also added to the rooms and breakfast area.
The hotel offer a wonderful, healthy breakfast with local products and a wide variety of tastefully prepared foods. The breakfast room is small, however our observation is that guests are quite happy to sit tight and share their traveller experiences and tips during breakfast.
