Best Wedding Hotels in Iceland
So what makes wedding hotels in Iceland the best? Overall by North American standards it means the customer service is high, cleanliness is superior, and you walk away with an unforgettable experience. In Iceland, most places uphold a European standard which in our opinion is slightly less than what North American expect.
To illustrate, most hotels have twin beds and adjoin then to make a “double” bed. Which can translate to one of you sleeping in the crack! Just be aware that there may be some cultural differences your guests may notice if they are well travelled.
