This is just a place you would not expect during ypur visit. It has a big terrace from where you can see the northern lights when the weather is good. Great service.

The rooftop lounge at the Gamla Bió is amazing! Had such a wonderful time there! Amazing, friendly, hospitable, staff, with great drinks and incredible views. Can't wait to go back next time I'm in Iceland!

The Petersen Suite is the best choice as your base when you are in Reykjavik. We were there in the day and at night. The view from the terrace is spectacular. You can lounge inside or outside and enjoy excellent service while you plan your next move. The staff was very attentive while offering a variety of Icelandic beverages and seafood sandwiches. The food was excellent. Not only do I recommend the Petersen Suite, it is a must-stop.

I stopped in at the Petersen suite on a Saturday, had a peak at the amazing scenery from the rooftop terrace. When I asked if I could have some tea, it turned they weren't open yet, but I great service anyway. This is a great spot for daytime coffee and getting your bearings in downtown Reykjavik. At night it turns into a lounge with a classic feel echoing the 1930's heyday of the building.
