Upon arrival, I had to call for help because the door PIN on my confirmation was wrong. Seems to be the pattern with Icelandic guesthouses though. My call was answered quickly and I got in. The guesthouse is located in a very central location where you can walk to everything. My room was on the first floor facing the street.... More

This guesthouse is perfectly located, right on the main drag in from the airport and out to the ring road. It’s an older building with all the rooms above a retail unit at street level. Our room (on the 2nd floor) was lovely, with very high ceiling, full length windows over the street (good people watching!) and a beautiful wrought... More

The place is nice I slept on room 2 first floor and was extremely loud and noisy from both street and restaurants ! Plus I didn't manage to ever find the guys at the receptions so I couldn't get any help from them or leave my bags the last day! Wifi problems and again no one to talk with! Too... More

If you're staying here, it's for a decent bed, a good shower and proximity to some key attractions in Reykjavik. Good news: it does all these things well. Bonus: there are nice staff. If you neither want or expect anything more than this is a great place to stay. I really liked it. Oh and my room had a really... More

I really like this place. It was clean, and good sized compared to what else we stayed in while in Iceland. The couple who own the place greeted me. Very friendly and welcoming. They also gave me great recommendations for dinner. My only negative is that there is only street parking so be prepared to pay for parking. It was... More

We found the Centric at short notice once we were already in Reykjavik by using TripAdvisor. The hosts are very friendly, obliging and helpful. Our room was lovely, with a great view overlooking the street. It had its own bathroom. The location is in the centre of town close to three supermarkets, several bars and many restaurants ranging from basic... More

Very good location and friendly owners. But, we got room with two beds instead one big bed. One of the bed was broken. The lines had holes. Mattresses were very old and did not have protective coverages. Room was very loud, and it was not clean.

Read reviews on here and decided to book this place based on location. Great decision.. it couldn't have been a better location right in the heart of downtown... Walking distance to everything!! Owner/hosts are friendly and helpful with dining suggestions. Don't miss the wonderful breakfast place right around corner!!!

This is a great place in the heart of the city. I was greated by the owner who was jovial and extremely helpful. They give you a funny fact sheet (attached) about the city and customs. The room was tastefully decorated and the bed very comfortable. I will definitely come back and stay here!

I rented a single room with a shared bathroom, the typical set up of a sink in your room to prevent people hogging the bathroom, and it was very competitive on price with all other private room locations in the city. The name is "Centric" and it is centrally located to all things in city proper. Location, Location, Location. In... More
