I've spent 5 nights in City Center hotel, the location is perfect, you are close to the main tourist attractions, to restaurants and shopping street and port. Staff is very friendly and helpful, they can advice where it is better to eat, to go out, they organise executions etc. Room is very clean and cosy, big advantage is that you... More

Nice hotel, good location and the staff were lovely and helpful but the sound from the people on the streets from 8pm-6am will keep you awake so keep your ear plugs handy or you will go insane! Bathrooms were quite dirty and I could not get used to the sulphur smell from the hot water 😢.

We will not stay here again. Getting help from the staff was like pulling teeth. Our room had gum stuck on the headboard, dust - bunnies around the edges of the room, trash under the heater (which I found when hunting for the clip that fell off the curtain when we tried to close them) 6 months of soap scum...

Dear Jinx, I am sorry for your experience during your stay, but it would have been nice to hear about this during your stay so I would have been able to correct this with you. I would have not been able to sleep knowing about the gum next to me and would have contacted the reception right away and dust... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night comming back from at Horseback riding trip up north. The room was not very big, but it felt new, clean and alltogether welcoming. The bed was very comfy, but being on the second floor with a room facing the street there was some noise in the night. Nothing dramatic just people talking... More

We stayed there at the beginning and end of our trip. Every room is different. We had a shower with a sliding wall to a shower in a tub. The beds are comfortable. Be prepared for noise at night. We had a city view, I heard the main street side was very loud, but they had the views. Breakfast is... More

We stayed at the City Center Hotel for a week in July, and overall it was a good and economical base in a very expensive city. Having read reviews about a lot of late night weekend noise, I requested a quiet high floor room (and packed ear plugs!) and was pleased to receive a fourth floor room at the rear... More

Thank you for your review and I appreciate the time taken to do this. The Brazilian lady is named Maira and you are spot on with how nice she is, thanks for sharing. I think you are a bit low on the price for the beer with 28 ikr. thats only like 0.2 USD. Regards Arni Solonsson More

I did my research on the hotel and most sites were OK with it. Never again....and I do plan on returning to Iceland. First - location was excellent in the center of town with walking distance to lovely restaurants and shops. The room (257) had only one very small window (that would open) high in a wall of windows and... More

This was a good clean hotel, brilliant location, very helpful staff and simple breakfast supplied. The rooms had everything that was needed, even the bar had a happy hour. It had everything you needed within a 2min walk

This is a very nice hotel with perfect location in downtown Reykjavík. The staff was nice and helpful. The rooms where very clean with great view. Almost everything you need to see in Reykjavík is in walking distance. Highly recommended
