Just returned from beautiful Iceland and we had a great stay at City Center. Rooms were spotless, comfortable and the staff were very helpful and completely fluent in English. They assisted with restaurant bookings, directions, heck they even went out of their way to pay my parking ticket for me.
The breakfast was pretty decent and the location is --as the name says--central.
You will have to park on the street (which was free from 6 pm to 10 am) or there is a parkade nearby (if you want to park during the day). If you are driving, and using 'sat nav', be aware that there are lots of hotels in Reykjavik with similar sounding names to City Center Hotel which is confusing. Also, I found that the sat nav lied to me a lot in Reykjavik and was generally unnecessary once out on the open road.
Just a comment about sound. The hotel is on a street with lots of bars and general good times, there is a bar on the ground floor in fact. Some people staying on the second floor (where I was) might find the noise from the street below a problem while staying at City Center...i might if I hadn't brought ear plugs and wasn't so blissed out from the Blue Lagoon...
