A new hotel brand, Canopy, owned by the Hilton International chain opens its first branch very soon.  The hotel is situated in a site known as Hljómalindarreiturinn, which used to house, among other things, the legendary Sirkus [1]bar. 

The hotel will offer 112 rooms and a central square in the middle of the hotel. 

The hotel is operated by Icelandair hotels.

According to an announcement from Icelandair hotels managing director Magnea Þórey Hjálmarsdóttir, the first intention was to open an Icelandair hotel on the site. “However, when we were offered the chance to open the first hotel of its kind worldwide, here in Iceland, and to benefit from the enormous marketing behind the concept internationally we jumped at the chance,” she says. According to the press release, Canopy is a new lifestyle brand for people who want extra quality both for accommodation and for food. The new hotel in Reykjavik will put a strong emphasis on Icelandic culture and design.”
