From some of the reviews, you would think that this hotel is miles distant from the centre of Reykjavik. But actually it's a brisk 10 minute walk to the Phallological Museum, which is the metaphorical line (or perhaps todger) in the sand, marking the official start of the city centre (when walking from the direction of the Hilton).
So it's not that far. And if you can't bother to walk, a free bus pass is available from reception - they seem to depart from the stop outside every ten minutes or so.
So don't fret about the distance. And in fact - it's an advantage. Read reviews for most city centre hotels and they mention the noise; the thing is, revellers stay up late in the midnight sun - night doesn't exist for them but you, the visitor, still need to get to sleep. And the Hilton is away from all that.
It's a great hotel. Just read the general tone of the other reviews. My one tip would be to shop around for the best price - Expedia was far cheaper than the Hilton site and booking.com; for 3 nights we paid £306 in total for 2 people including breakfast, which is a bargain!
One other thing about the Phallological Museum - unlike the Hilton's Executive lounge, you don't have to be a Member to get in.
