“Great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Stayed here one weekend in a really comfortable and cozy room. Staff was really friendly and helpful. Located in downtown Reykjavík, close to everything we needed to have a great experience.
All in all great hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Spent 3 nights here in a clean, large room with all the facilities. Massive shower room, toiletries provided and mega comfy beds with black out curtains - ideal at this time of year with only 3 hrs darkness each night!
The location is ideal in the city and all the tour operators call here for pick ups etc.
The bar does a happy hour from 5-7pm at a very good price for a beer(500kr)
Breakfasts are very good with a huge range and run til 10am if you fancy a lie in.
All in, a good hotel in a fantastic city

I stayed here with a group of 29 people and the hotel could not have been better about it. Great suggestions on places to eat and things to do if you haven't already mapped stuff out yourself. The location was prime and was in extremely close proximity to many clubs and bars. If your looking for something great and well worth the reasonable cost while staying in Reykjavik this is place to go. It also had a craft beer bar on the first floor that doubled as the spot to get free breakfast in the morning. Can't beat that.

This hotel is the only choice when it comes to where to stay in Reykjavik! You can't beat the location!! The room was clean and the bed was more comfortable than my bed at home. I can't say enough good things about how comfortable the bed was....I slept incredibly well after tiring, long days of sight-seeing. Also, the hotel is walking distance from everything! The staff was super friendly. They even loaned us an outlet converter because we forgot to buy one. Choose the City Center Hotel!!!

We had 2 rooms over 6 nights, (1 double, 1 standard-single). Great location near dozens of restaurants, Info Centre, Tour bus pick up at door or nearby. Walking distance to many attractions. The front desk staff couldn't be more helpful at any time of day with ideas of trips and options, they didn't seem to have the bias towards 1 tour company you sometimes get. Bar on ground floor doubles as breakfast room tried both and it was cosy and worth trying Standard rate continental breakfast that you don't need to prebook was adequate, and no problem if you want something more just a short walk away. Double Rooms are small but enough, to get by for a holiday traveller, full height window opened to balcony style railing & outlook over the square which gave a good local feel to the stay . Our son's standard room was very small and not that great if you had to spend a lot of time in the room. Amenities were kept stocked up.
Nearby nightclubs are noisy, but didn't really cause loss of sleep.
For the money we got what we expected, and nothing was out of order, early check-in was arranged within 60 mins of arrival.
Would definitely stay again if in Reykjavik.

After 3 weeks in a camper van around Iceland this hotel seemed like Heaven! Our room was lovely - nice big soft bed and lovely bathroom. The location is fantastic and I got half price rates on hotels.com the day before which was a real bonus. it is virtually across the road from the historic hotel borg - which was nearly 10 x the price! The staff were very welcoming and helpful and booked our cab to the airport early the next morning, sending us away with 'take away coffees'! The cab ride to the airport was only 40 mins and cost 16000 kroner - better than staying at the airport.
