the affordability awarded to tourists as a direct result of the 2008 collapse
of Iceland’s financial system—make it a must-see destination. Stay at the Center
Hotel Arnarhvoll
, in
downtown’s 101 district, where the modern rooms (slate palette accented with
red and chestnut brown) come with views of Mount Esja. Enjoy a dinner of foal
steak with couscous and cabbage at relative newcomer Segurmo
