We are a family with two young girls and we spent 3 nights in this good hotel. What we appreciated most was the very good location right in the center of Rykjavik, very close to the main tourist information and the new harbour. Staff was very friendly and helped us out where possible. Room was clean, room size average but... More

we just spent four days I this lovely hotel. The staff was very pleasant and went out of their way to make sure everyone who was waiting for a tour bus to pick them up did just that. They offered to call our tour bus when I mis booked a bus transfer. Not only did they call to company but... More

We have just come back from Iceland and stayed in the City Center hotel. Could not fault this hotel at all. The reception staff were very friendly and extremely helpful with checking tours and booking airport transportation for us. The breakfast is lovely and with such a wide choice of food you'll never go hungry. They do a cooked breakfast... More

I don't like to spend a lot on hotels - I just need a clean, safe place to sleep and clean-up, as I spend as much time as possible outside of my hotel. The hotel itself fits the bill perfectly. It is cute, clean, reasonably priced (for Reykjavik), and it's in a fantastic location (as far as being centrally located).... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean and comfy. Excellent location with many sights in walking distance. We were there on a weekday and our stay was quiet. I see some people who stayed on a weekend had trouble with a noisy club across the street. But we did not experience that at all. Some would consider the bathroom in our... More

Spent four days in Reykjavik in December '14 - this hotel could not have been more convenient. It's within walking distance of pretty much everywhere. Not spectacular but clean and comfortable with pleasant staff. Room price was very reasonable too. We didn't have breakfast there at all so can't comment on that, but there's a bar at the bottom (which... More

This hotel had the best location we could ask for. Right outside you find a whole host of bars and restaurants and it is right in the heart of the city. It was also about a three minute walk from the city centre drop off point for the major tours and is located very near to the Gray Line tour... More

Fantastic hotel that is in a perfect location for shops, bars and restaurants. Our room was clean and warm with a lovely huge balcony that overlooked the nearby square. The men on reception were really helpful and made us feel welcome. Breakfast was good value and the fresh bread was yummy. Some pastries or muffins and more fruit options would... More

Perfect location, surrounded by lots of bars, restaurants and shops. We had a room on the 6th floor and did not notice any noise from the bar downstairs. The two guys on reception were helpful, checking our tours were running on time etc.
