Our Hotel-Fosshotel Baron

A comfortable and centrally located hotel, with a magnificient view out over the ocean. Just a few metres from Reykjavik’s main shopping street Laugavegur and next to the seashore, a short walk from Reykjavik’s harbour.

In December 2007 Fosshotel Baron renovated 20 economy rooms and changed them into Historical rooms. According to our first customer feedback, the historical rooms at Fosshotel Baron are the chain's most romantic hotel rooms with real character. Here comes a little history about the Baron´s historical rooms. The French baron named C.Gouldrée-Boilleau moved to Reykjavik in the year 1898 and founded the first dairy farm in Iceland that had the main purpose to sell milk. He became a pioneer in that field. His farm was called The Baron-dairy farm and both Barónsstígur, the street, and Fosshótel Baron are named after the French baron. This is a preserved building and the furniture and decorations reflect that period.
