My husband and I went to Iceland for our honeymoon. I came across this hotel using this site actually :) it was rated as a great value hotel. When you hear value, I know most people think, "ok iffy place but for the price you can't complain." This is not the case. Our room was spacious (as spacious you can... More

The hotel is in a fantastic spot, with easy access to many of Reykjavik's best restaurants and attractions. The rooms are nice and the hotel is in good condition. The downsides are that parking is quite difficult in the area (naturally being in city center), and the rooms lack temperature control. Rooms facing the sun, which is out almost 24... More

Fantastic location - at the middle of everywhere. You can walk to any place from here. Nordic visitor book ended our adventure here. Upon arrival the first day, we were super early. They didn't bat an eye. Held our bags and a room was ready within a couple hours. I cannot say enough good things about the front desk. Today... More

City Center Hotel is in the heart of old town. There were many shops and restaurants nearby. It was a 20 minute walk up the hill to the church. The hotel lobby needs some updating, but the staff were most friendly and helpful. They engaged us in conversation and that made our stay very enjoyable. The rooms are small and... More

The hotel is in a really good location and the staff are really friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and a good size. The beds were amazing, slept really well. Only negative for me was the breakfast items available. On one occasion they had hardly anything left but it was only an hour into service. When I asked... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon back in December. The room was basic in an IKEA sort of way but we spent very little time there as we were exploring the fabulous scenery and only needed a place to rest at the end of the day. Yes there is a nightclub opposite which we only heard at weekends and yes... More

The Hotel is very well placed: you can do almost everything by foot. However, it is very expensive regarding its amenities. Rooms are clean and staff is very helpful, but they are very small, and not sound proofed (you can listen your neighbors talking).

I stayed here for 1 night before joining a boat. Lovely place, conveniently located. Great staff. The room was lovely on the top floor. Large, comfortable with a huge bathroom. Incredibly comfy bed, sadly I was only here very briefly but would stay again if in the area. Fantastic breakfast with a huge selection.
