The hotel opened its doors to guests 1st of August 2018. From the very beginning, we have been extremely popular among our foreign guests. Because of good reviews on Trip Advisor, we saw a steady increase in bookings from day one. At the beginning of 2020, we were regarded as the number one hotel in Iceland on Trip Advisor. We changed our focus during the Covid pandemic towards local guests. At the beginning of 2021, we are so fortunate to be extremely popular among locals. The forecast for 2021 is uncertain. The availability of a vaccine that can be quickly and widely administered is key to recovery coupled with consumer confidence to travel.
360° Hotel is situated on a quiet hill close to Highway 1– the most popular tourist area of Iceland. Its convenient location allows those loving calm atmospheres to enjoy quiet surroundings and still have restaurants and shops of the nearby towns within 10-20 minutes’ driving distance, as well as some of the most beautiful attractions that South Iceland has to offer.
Mostly all interior designs are with concrete walls, minimalistic but classy interiors, however warm and inviting, that are as much about function as style, with strong, clean lines and without a hint of excess. The hotel is designed to offer the traveler a home-like atmosphere. The design style is warm and inviting, with elegance and classy touch, chick but silent luxury, the combination of rough and soft material and the raw unfinished look, with concrete walls, classy interiors, that are as much about function as style, with strong, clean lines and without a hint of excess. Exposed metal pipes and electric switches and wires on the walls and we use metal and glass walls and doors. This design is called industrial design. The large lounge is just outside of your room. You just step outside and there you are with other hotel guests. If you feel like going outside, surrounded by snow and winter, being in our hot tub underneath the stars and the northern lights or during the light summer nights, watching the midnight sun, is a reason enough to visit the hotel.
