The hotel is situated in a very nice part of town close to main shopping street. It is also within walking distance to the Harpa Concert Hall. There is no minibar which does not concern us but they do have a fridge in the room which is good. The hotel has no air conditioning which is typical of hotels in... More

Rooms are modern, double beds were comfortable. Extra pillows etc were available in room. Smalish-room but standard for Europe, but very large dressing area. Fantastic shower heated by Iceland's thermal springs. Small shower but huge water volume. Quiet street yet very close to tourist center of town. Breakfast buffet looked uninteresting (not the standard Scandinavian smorgasbord) so we skipped it... More

I stayed here for one night in August 2016, Culture Night to be exact. The location can't be beat as it is literally in the center of Reykjavik. The resturant in the hotel is top notch as is the bar. You're close to everything the city has to offer and everything can be accessed easily on foot. There is also... More

We were very pleased with our stay at this hotel. Located downtown within walking distance of restaurants, shopping and museums. The food is excellent in the bar and you will be pleasantly surprised. The staff is fantastic. We had a little incident while staying at the hotel and they truly handled it so professionally. The rooms are spacious, clean and... More

I shared a double room with my traveling companion. The rooms are not large but are clean and adequate. There was ample space for our luggage and there is a comfortable sitting area. The beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was spacious. All of the staff was friendly and helpful and Laura Bjorg at the front desk was particularly kind.... More

Hotel Reykjavik Centrum is conveniently located. The staff are friendly, and helpful. Rooms are average size, clean, and you really don't need more. Breakfast is your average European meal. I will say, the carpet throughout the hotel really needs to be replaced! It is worn and dirty.

Nice property and excellent location but expect late night/early morning noise. It seemed like every late night partier in Reykjavik came by our hotel. They were happy and loud but at 2am it was no longer welcome. We stayed in a studio which had a small kitchen and more space than most properties but it was tough to get a... More

Like all of Europe, rooms and beds are small. The location can't be beat, as everything a tourist might want to do or visit is within easy walking distance. The wi-fi worked perfectly one day and not at all another, and the desk staff was not helpful in getting me on. The attached bar has excellent drinks and snacks.

A really nice hotel just in the center of Reykjavik. The rooms were charm and quite big and they are renovated in an old wonderful building. It's quit expensi e. So you pay the place more than the services, but it's worth. The architecture to join the two buildings is interesting. Cleanness must improve. One day they don't make the... More

Really liked the fact that it was right in town. Next to an underground museum. Also next to a very good restaurant. Five minute walk to main part of town. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was fine. Would definitely stay again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Reykjavik Centrum is a new first class hotel in the heart of the city, opened on April 1st 2005. It is located on one of Reykjavik’s oldest streets, Adalstraeti, in a newly renovated building, the oldest part of which was built in 1764. On each side of it, new buildings have been constructed in the likeness of their historic predecessors. The hotel spreads over all three buildings, and is designed in the style found in Reykjavík around 1900. During its construction, the remains of a Viking longhouse from the Settlement Period were found. Among the finds excavated at the site were Iceland’s oldest human remains, dating from approximately 870 AD.The hotel has 89 rooms, each fitted with modern amenities, such as satellite TV, telephone, Internet access, mini-bar, radio, iron and board, hair dryer, safe and tea & coffee set.
