Excellent two nights in a very comfortable hotel situated right in the middle of the eating and drinking quarter of the city. Staff were hyper-helpful with advice and with extras like ice for our room based G&Ts. Breakfast at 10Euros was very good value. Easy parking for our hire car in nearby streets.

I stayed here for 4 nights at the end of March with friends. I was delighted with my choice and room on 6th floor which was spacious, warm and quiet. Tea/coffee facilities in the bedroom were a bonus as was "free" coffee available all day in foyer Breakfast was excellent with a very wide choice including a wide range of... More

A fantastic location, close to everything important...Gray Line terminal, restaurants, bars, museums & so forth. More pertinent however, is the comfort, cleanliness & service of the hotel itself. Find it difficult to come up with any criticism. I'm definitely going to return to Iceland & Reykjavik, next time in the summer months to compare the snow with the green of... More

City Center Hotel is located in a very convenience location, close to everything-shops, restaurants, attractions, bank machine, information center etc. Room is not big but adequate for double occupancy. Clean towels and good breakfast.

Stayed for 3 nights at this hotel, had a great time and thought the staff were amazing and really helpful. We experience lots of issues with Reykjavik Excursions but the staff could not do more to help us. The room was not massive and as it was on the main road it was slightly noisy on Friday and Saturday night... More

I loved this hotel. Location was within walking distance to all the restaurants, bars, and souvenir shops you could possibly need. Was also a 2 minute walk around the corner from the Grayline tours central office which was convenient for getting to tour buses. All the staff we encountered were awesome, especially Finnur! Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful, even... More

Stayed in March for three nights.Comfortable warm clean rooms.Friendly helpful staff,tasty breakfasts what's not to like? Would recommend this place,you get a lot of hotel for the money. A little word of caution like any city centre hotel it can get a little noisy in the surrounding streets but nothing too over the top and we had no trouble sleeping.

The rooms had nice space and great bathroom facilities. Our room had a balcony where we were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights from. Elevators and a nice breakfast buffet. The staff were exceptional with being helpful and nice. They recommended both restaurant's and places to shop which were great.
