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.

Perfect location, right in the center of the city. Attentive staff who helped to arrange trips and restaurants. Clean and comfortable rooms. Bathroom is slightly crowded. Nice breakfast for a very reasonable price.

Stayed for 3 nights at this hotel and we were very pleased with our choice. Excellent location - within walking distance to shops, attractions and restaurants, including the famous hotdog booth! Rooms were reasonably sized and very clean. Big bathroom with nice water pressure and hot water in the shower. The hotel provided tea making facilities, free wifi, slippers and... More

There is a lot that is good about this hotel. The location is very central, in the historic part of Reykjavik but within easy walking distance of the city centre and just around the block from the airport bus terminus (though make sure you get the 'Gray Line' bus as the other one stops much farther out). Breakfast was well-organised,... More

When I the taxi pulled up to the hotel I was a bit worried but as soon as I walked to the door this worry changed into a positive experience.
