The Exeter Hotel enjoys a coveted location on Reykjavik’s old harbor in a mixed-use neighborhood of retail, restaurants, cultural spaces and local residences. Though the hotel is housed in a restored 1904 building, its vibe is decidedly contemporary while paying homage to the era when fishing and trade were the predominant industries on the site. Inside, an open floor plan and high ceilings lend a sense of spaciousness in the lobby. Rooms have en suite bathrooms with walk-in shower and hair dryer, writing desk, complimentary Wi-Fi, smart TV, telephone, safe, mini fridge, coffee- and tea-making facilities.
Central to the Exeter’s identity is its ultra-green construction and operations. Design and decor incorporate industrial elements that support the hotel’s deep commitment to environmental sustainability, including extensive use of locally sourced concrete that aids in fire and earthquake protection, reduces the use of paint, and saves energy in maintaining a comfortable temperature within. The Exeter is powered and heated exclusively by geothermal and hydropower sources, and its cold water comes from a natural local well. Iceland-produced Rockwool insulation—a stone-based fiber product--is used for sound absorption, while a multitude of other environmentally friendly materials – many of which are recycled – are incorporated throughout the hotel’s construction. Bath amenities are plastic-free (including toothbrushes made of bamboo), and even the Nespresso coffee pods are recycled via a special bin in the guest rooms.
