CenterHotel Thingholt is very well situated, a short walk to most sites, restaurants, and the center of town. The weather was unseasonably hot while we were there, so the rooms were stuffy (of course Iceland generally has no need for AC!), and since I'm a very light sleeper, it was a bit noisy to open the window. However, the hotel is located just on a little side street, removing it from the worst of Reykjavik's noisy nightlife (but we did not try out this theory on a Friday or Saturday night).
The interior is ultra-contemporary in design, spiffed up with black and white leather, a fountain, cow hides, glass, acrylic and sealed cement - a little too black and white for my tastes, but I appreciated the effort. Our double room was not large, but it was well-laid out with a large white leather sofa, very comfortable beds, and the largest shower we had while in Iceland. Our friend's single room was smaller still.
The desk staff members are pleasant. There is free wireless internet and a large lounge area next to the front desk. There is no parking for the hotel, but we had no trouble finding a spot on the street less than a block away. It is metered parking that activates at 10am. The breakfast buffet, which has fruit, veggies, boiled eggs, toast, pastry, meats, fish, cheese, yoghurt and cereal, was better than most others we saw in two weeks of travelling Iceland.
Given the great rate that we found, I'd stay there again while in Reykjavik.
