The staff was wonderful - The room was fine. The problem for me was my window faced "The Drunken Rabbit" a pub. The hotel is literally in the center of the city which has some advantages as far as shopping and walking to sites. But the partying starts at 9:00 and goes on until 5:00 or so on weekends -...

My wife and me stayed there for five days and found the hotel comfortable, although simple, with a friendly staff and a perfect location (in the very heart of downtown), making it a good option for those who need a practical hotel.

We loved City Center Hotel. It was a great location - close to everything in Reykjavik. The staff was helpful and friendly. Our room was clean, nicely appointed and a nice size for our needs. We enjoyed the convenient and hearty breakfast buffet every day before heading out on day tours. We also enjoyed the 2 for one happy hour!... More

Really terrible hotel, one of the worst I visited. Dirty room, really small bathroom, unconfortable bed and staff really unpleasant. Breakfast terrible and so poor. Don't waste your money in this hotel!

This is a nice hotel, but the Icelandic nightlife on Friday and Saturday ruin a good night's sleep (any other night is fine.) It doesn't matter if you have a room on the street side or the back side of the hotel, the yelling and loud music will keep you awake. The staff in the hotel is very nice and... More

Great hotel in the city center in the middle of it all from the Harbour to the church. Bars and restaurants are nearby and do not need transportation for anything including museums. Rooms were clean and desk was very helpful and even offered to help with anything. I would stay again if I make it back to Reykjavik.

Spent two nights. Hotel is located across and just nearby three pubs that on Fridays stay open to 4 am. Very noisy. As far as location, very convenient to most major sights downtown. Convenient 1 minute walk to tour bus and airport stop. Cold water was amazing but the hot was direct from the sulfur springs.

Nice room with okay value relatively vs other similar rooms. Hot water smells bad probably due to local volcanic springs? Breakfast was eatable. Staff was friendly. Some noice on yards at night but not too bad. Good location.

Good location on one end of the main street in town. The volume from the very nearby bars with live music and loud patrons, mostly tourists from the US, will be annoying if you're trying to get to sleep between 10PM and 2AM. The staff was courteous and helpful during my stay. They did charge me for a breakfast I... More

Room stated that it slept four, but when we arrived with three people we were told there was an additional $75 per night fee for the third person on top of the $300 per night we had already paid. Our confirmation stated two beds, but we were put in a room with one queen and told that the rooms with... More
