I loved this hotel. I stayed here with two of my friends. We reserved one room and paid extra to have a cot brought in. There was plenty of room for all three of us and our luggage. The breakfast was buffet style - they had breads, jams, eggs, bacon, sausage, cheese, tomatoes and some other stuff. Also the Micro... More

A change of flight times less than 24 hours before leaving left me with a dilemma, ' How can I get to Glasgow airport for 9.45 am, impossible my original flight was 14.05. Without a last minute offer by a friend I would have had to cancel everything. The City Centre Hotel was excellent, they were all so caring and... More

We spent two nights here and maybe got a total of 6 hours of sleep. The hotel itself is fine - small European rooms with a small fridge, a hot water heater for coffee and tea, and a nice big shower - but if you can't get a night's sleep, what's the point. It is surrounded by bars including one... More

This hotel is in a great location beside the shopping street and plenty of great restaurants. The front desk staff are friendly and very helpful. The room is clean and simple. The bed was a little on the soft side. The breakfast is very reasonable and had a great selection.

The hotel is right in the centre of town. Location perfect for shops, bars, restaurants and night life. The locals party on Friday and Saturday nights until 6 in the morning. No chance of a good nights sleep. Our hotel room was spacious, unlike some others. Bathroom clean. Beds soft. Hotel staff very helpful and courteous.They booked our trips out... More

Super location but 'you get what you pay for'! Fairly basic ambience, helpful reception staff (particularly the female receptionist - very knowledgeable, and the overnight guy) and coffee all day facility is a real bonus. Breakfast super if you arrive at opening time- later can be slow to replenish. One downside is the size of some of the double rooms... More

The room was fine and not as noisy as expected since we noticed that it was right above a bar. Modern fixtures in room, nice bathroom. We slept pretty well there. They did provide a breakfast for a nominal fee downstairs. The front desk staff was helpful except for putting us on the wrong bus line to shuttle back to... More

Centrally located, this little hotel is friendly and nicely appointed, but be sure to ask for more towels. There's a great bar on the main level, Micro Bar, with one of Reykavik's largest selections of microbrews.

I organised this for a stag group - the hotel was really flexible as numbers kept changing. The location was perfect for going out and central to everything (Reykjavik is not very big so there's few bad locations). The hotel is clean, well specified, and comfortable. It may be a bit loud at night as it's in the centre of... More
