It was Christmas Day, and Perlan was closed. But lovely view from Perlan looking towards the city. We took the Hop on Hop off and took a stop just for photo sessions.

We stopped off here as part of our hop on/off bus tour. It is free to enter, once inside there are some areas selling bric'a'brak and on the lower floor a fountain that erupts every few minutes like a real Geysir. you can either take the lift or if your feeling fit climb the stairs to the viewing deck. You... More

We spent New Years Eve at a Gala Dinner here. What a magical setting as the restaurant revolves over the city giving 360 degree views. The food was absolutely superb. We were able to see all the fireworks over the city. The staff were very attentive and helpful. However apparently the restaurant is moving into the town so we felt... More

We went to the Perlan at night and unfortunately was between restaurant opening times. We did managed to go to the top of the Perlan and had the most amazing view of the city. Definitely worth the walk from the centre!

We had reservation to have dinner buffet for New Year's Eve at the Perlan. The pick up from the hotel was on time and the place is very beautiful. The food was abundant and varied but it was OK as far as taste. The best part of the night was the firework show that the residents of Reykjavik put up... More

We spent New Years's Eve at the Pearl and felt this was the perfect venue to enjoy the local celebrations. The food was good although it could have been hotter - a common problem with mass catering. Most spectacular of all was watching the fireworks at midnight from the 4th floor balcony. There can't be a better place in Reykjavik... More
