'The Reykvjavik EDITION' is a luxury hotel that opened in Reykvjavik, Iceland, in November of 2021. Since then, the hotel has become the go-to destination for a luxury room-and-board experience in the city. The hotel features 253 guest rooms, meaning it can comfortably board over 500 guests.
One of the most unique features of The Reykvjavik EDITION, though, is that it offers all residents the option to take a 'Beer Bath.' This is a bath filled with hot water mixed with malt, hops, and yeast, effectively allowing residents to soothe and relax themselves in a tub filled with hot beer. Attendees will also be able to enjoy beer, wine, and sprits, while they "shvitz," which means steam bath.
More information on the accommodations offered at The Reykvjavik EDITION can be found online at the hotel's dedicated website.
