I don't do stairs very well (age & knee issues) and I had room 15 on the very top floor. However the very helpful housekeeper carried my bags for me and arranged to carry them down again in the morning. I was there on a Sunday night and had a wonderful sleep. Very convenient location. I would stay here again.

Comfortable room, with a sink and decent beds, HOWEVER, the guesthouse is next door to a nightclub, which was very noisy and kept us awake until late into the night (2/3am) If you're planning on getting a good night's sleep, this guesthouse (or at the very least Room 5), is not for you! If you're planning on going clubbing, then... More

I was looking for accommodation and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the prices. So from that aspect Centric was the only choice which I could really afford. I stayed twice here, once on my arrival and second on my departure. Centric is a family run guest house so you wont find someone at the reception all the time.... More

well located but suffers from scaffolding outside windows, noisy bar that goes from 12-3am, blind that doesn't block out all light no hooks for bathroom towels, shower that leaks, little space so knees and thighs receive good bruises from bed and table. Really well decorated though. Nice character and lovely staff/owner.

They were clearly doing renovations on the place but hadn't mentioned this when we booked. There were holes in the walls (the bathroom hole had a towel shoved in it), paint on the floor and bits of carpet missing. Overall the place was good with comfortable beds and a good location but I would give it a miss for a... More

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
