We loved this hotel. Very good value for what you get. The rooms are very modern, clean, and a fairly large size. Big bathrooms, excellent showers, nice flat screen with satellite television. And the location downtown is perfect. We had a rental car and parking was very limited because of construction on the streets, but we found cheap parking at... More

Despite arriving at 6 am via Icelandic Air and waiting until noon for a room, we really felt the staff did all they could to accommodate our stay. The front desk is professional and very knowledgable about local options. Location is great -- right in the heart of downtown. Rate is steep, but that is Reykjavik. The room was clean... More

Was concerned when I booked this because it seemed very expensive for a hotel describing itself as a two-star. Suffice to say, this isn't a two-star hotel. Great location, central to everything that you need. Rooms are very good with little noise from the street. And the wifi is blisteringly fast.

I have just come back from a 4 night stay at this hotel and I can honestly recommend it 100% - the location is perfect, staff are friendly and the standard of the single room that I stayed in was the best I have ever stayed in. Yes, there is a little noise around midnight but when I say "little"... More

This hotel is located in the center city, right by good food and drinks. The domestic airport is very close and has rental cars. The hotel staff is great and rooms are good. The wifi is free and has a great connection in the rooms.

My review is a little overdue (one year late, sorry) But my opinion has only improved with age! I stayed with City Center last year while on a U.S. rugby tour. My partner's team came to Reykjavik to play the Icelandic rugby team. What a trip! I have nothing but fond memories of Iceland and can't wait to go back.... More

This hotel is as downtown as you can be. It is very close to the bus stop when you need to drag you luggages to catch the bus to the airport, you need a hotel like this. The hotel is cozy, clean and friendly. The room is quite big and we had a room with a balcony (fifth floor) where... More

We stayed there for 2 nights as a group of 6. We had rooms on the 4th and 5th floors and the one on the 5th had an outside balcony! Ours just had a juliet balcony with not much of a view. Still, you're not on holiday to look out of a hotel window! The location of the hotel was... More

Situated very centrally the location is excellent! The room was clean and nicely furnished with very comfortable beds. My room (503) had also a balcony with a fantastic view (see attached photo). Staff was extremely helpful. Good choice of buffet food available for breakfast. Highly recommended! Regards Svein-Magne Tunli from Bergen, Norway.
