A cozy guesthouse owned & operated by the friendly, charasmatic couple, Örvar and Margrét. They were successful in making our stay clean and comfortable amidst renovations. Did I mention the beds? We fell asleep easily and awoke refreshed (not always easy to do away from home). As others have said, Centric Guesthouse is centrally located on a main street in... More

Centric Guesthouse is a perfect base from which to explore Reykjavik and Iceland. Centrally located, it's cheap, cheerful, clean and comfortable. The new owners are really friendly and enthusiastic, and are clearly investing a lot of money into rennovating the guesthouse, which will be beautiful when it is finished. Comfy cosy beds and plenty of hot water, what more could... More

Has to be one of the cosiest hotels I've ever stayed at. Room was warm and well decorated, service was excellent, staff extremely friendly and once outside the front door you are basically in the city centre. Had a brilliant stay and look forward to visiting Reykjavik and the Centric Guesthouse again.

Comfortable and very central location on a main road (a bit noisy at night). Margret and Orvar were very welcoming and helpful. They offered to keep our luggage for a few days while we were traveling around and gave very good advice about restaurants and sightseeing in Reykjavick. Nothing fancy but very friendly and authentic.

All I needed was a place to rest my head. The room was very clean and basic. It is located in the heart of the city so you can fall out of bed and you have everything on your doorstep. It would of been nice for the tea and coffee to be replenished daily however as I am a self... More

Location is perfect.. value for money is great.. owners are amazing and overly helpful.. could not ask for better i rekon. Why pay ridiculous hotel prices for a crumby hotel? Iceland is expensive enough. Theres a great wee pub next door and even an exotic icelandic resturant downstairs who also are very helpful. I had a blast.

What a find and what a lovely welcoming owner. We could not recommend the Centric highly enough. The new owners deserve much higher ratings than the previous owners on Trip Advisor and they are clearly putting in further efforts to renovate this charming and very o!d building. There is further refurbishment to be achieved but we just could not have... More

The new owners Orvar & Margret are really trying hard to make a positive impact on this guesthouse and are extremely friendly and actually care, they are slowly refreshing the rooms with new decor which is great. I would recommend this place to anyone who needs a place central and close to all shops etc. Overall good, clean and convenient,... More

The name of this guesthouse has changed twice in the recent past, probably because the new owners, Örvar and Margrét, are making a good attempt to improve on its past Tripadvisor reputation. They are very friendly and want your stay to be good. Yes, there is noise from surrounding bars late on weekend nights, but that goes with the location.... More

I stayed at the Centric/Pisa Guesthouse recently and did not have a good experience. Although it's close to many attractions, the noise from the outside street and bars/nightclubs until 6am made it next to impossible to sleep, so be forewarned. Management was also not present and unresponsive, and never sent me an invoice, yet still charged my credit card two... More
