4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Comfortable beds, clean rooms, friendly & helpful staff, hot water, nice breakfast and perfect location. The rate was a value for Iceland which is expensive. Plenty of tours can be arranged and plenty of cafes, restaurants and shopping just outside the door.

This was a great place to stay for my first Iceland experience. The staff provided nightly updates on the northern lights which was very helpful. The location in the city center was perfect for walking and exploring the city. Will definitely stay next year when we return!

Can't fault the name - City Center Hotel is located in the centre of Reykjavik, so well-placed for walking around. Parking is an issue, with a small number (5-6) metered spaces on the street. The rooms are small and clean, with comfortable beds. But it's on a busy street with pubs and resraurants, so can be pretty noisy. Prices are... More

Stayed here in July 2016. Location is perfect for walking around Reykjavik, however you will hear street noise all night long, due to the active night life in Reykjavik! Ear plugs will help! The front desk staff was VERY helpful! I would skip the hotel breakfast. It was good, but way overpriced. Instead, check out the Laundromat Cafe directly across... More

The hotel was in the center of all the action and close to shops, restaurants and night spots. We enjoyed our walks to many attractions from the hotel. The hotel staff was professional, friendly and knowledgeable. The rooms were adequate as was the buffet breakfast. I read other reviews and people complained of the noise but if you are very...

Pleasant welcome & helpful staff. Very well located in the city center of Reykjavik. Large and well equipped room, with kettle in the room. Appropriate size bathroom or shower-room, also well equipped. Good breakfast that could vary a bit more from day to day...

Get a room on the upper floors 4-6 and you will love this hotel. Clean comfortable and reliable wifi. Could not be more centrally located to walk anywhere in the city. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

The room size is in no relation to the roomprice. If you pay nearly 300€ for one night you should not block the whole room when opening your luggage.The friendlines in the lobby is from indifferent to excellent.

Very good beyond my expectations. Well decorated and comfortable. Good breakfast, and good location. Highly recommend. it's just not that easy to find a parking place during summer when tourists rush into Iceland.
