Reviewed November 23, 2012

Good, clean, comfortable hotel. Perfect for first 3 nights of my vacation as it's located in middle of City Center, easy access to shopping, dining, bars, so it was easy to just get out and be around everything. Good size room, full-size bed and the bathroom, while not very big, was adequate and had heated floors!! Shower was small, but usable. Good location if you want to avoid the street noise from the bars at night. Front desk staff were amiable enough, but seemed somewhat stoic and not all that into smiling... Breakfast was just okay so I just found better AM grub at The Laundromat down the street. Check-in, check-out was easy and they let me check-in early on my arrival as I got in around 8:30.

Room Tip: If you want a real quiet room, ask for the 4th floor, facing East. They turn off the wireless inter...

This was a good base for two nights in Reykjavik. The rooms were perfectly adequate (enough room for two large suitcases) and all the facilities were clean and tidy. The shower room might be a little small for some, but it was fine for us. The staff were helpful, and the breakfast buffet had a reasonable choice. The location was best - very near all the main streets and places in Reykjavik - just a 5 minute walk from two excellent restaurants we tried (Fish Company and Grill Market), and from the harbour and main shopping area. There is no parking at the hotel, but we arrived on Saturday evening and left just before 10am on Monday, so didn't need to pay for parking anywhere, and got a spot in the car park just next to the hotel. There is plenty of parking around on streets in anycase. The hotel was not noisy - it was set back far enough from the main streets, though my husband did notice it was busier at 5am than it was at 11pm! But it wasn't anything to keep us awake at all - it was a quiet location.

No free wi-fi was a pain (and I think the charges weren't small if you did want the internet for 24 hours!), but apart from that, this was a very decent start to our week's holiday, no complaints!

Room Tip: we were on the left hand side as you look at the front of the hotel, on the 3rd floor (there is a li...

We stayed here for 4 nights in mid-october. The hotel is in an excellent location in the center of Reykjavik and only a minutes walk from some nice restaurants and bars and just a few more to the central shopping street. It was also a good location for Excursions as it was only about 3 minutes walk to the Iceland Excursions ticket office and pick-up point. The hotel itself is nice and comfortable but don't expect 5 star comfort or furnishings as the hotel rooms in Iceland do seem to be smaller and very simple (it reminded me of an Ikea bedroom). I would recommend staying here and would say that its probably one of the better places to stay in Reykjavik, especially for location.

The hotel does charge for wireless internet and bottles of water which i would normally expect to be complimentary although if you have a drink in the hotel bar they will give you free internet access.

We had a really good time in Iceland and would recommend to anyone for a short break. There isn't much to do in Reykjavik itself but there are plenty of really good excursions. We did the Blue Lagoon, Northern Lights and Super Jeep Golden Circle Tour with Glacier and Snowmobiling and would recommend everything single one.

There couldn't be a better location for this warm and comfortable hotel. Its right in the heart of things, but off the main street so it's not noisy either. The staff on reception were not very smiley, but they were very efficient and helped us book a tour and rang another tour company to confirm arrangements for us. Our room was one of the modern style rooms, it was small, but comfortable and very clean. There was underfloor heating which was a fantastic treat to come home to after a day out in freezing weather. We liked the ice machine in the corridor, but didn't like powdered creamer rather than milk on the tea tray. This was a good hotel for a few days stay in an amazing place. We didn't have breakfast, instead we went into town and had breakfast in a small cafe with FREE wifi. This hotel would benefit from having free WIFI, (but guests can use 2 computers in reception). We would certainly return to this hotel in the future.

We stayed here for 6 nights. Chose this hotel on the advice of other TripAdvisor reviews. This hotel did not disappoint. The room was a nice sized double for a European hotel, and it had a nice amount of storage. The washroom had the usual sink and toilet with a shower stall which was clean and a good enough size. The attached restaurant had a nice hot breakfast buffet, which we ate at twice as it was approximately $17 extra per person. However, it was convenient on those early morning tour dates. The location was great as it was walking distance to many attractions in the old part of Reykjavik. Close to the Tjornin (pond), City Hall, Parliament, Lutheran Cathedral, the Harpa and the waterfront. Just steps away from a small bakery and grocery store. Staff were very helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed in the Hotel Reykjavik Centrum for 3 midweek nights - no problems at all with the accommodation nor the service/reception.
Standard room #203 has double bed and reasonable size with view out on square. It's possible to open one small window and I did not notice any noise. Bathroom is very small, but I prefer a shower to bathtub anyway. Very limited selection of TV channels (Sky News or Animal Planet the only English ones). In the wardrobe you'll find minibar, ironing board + a safe.

The breakfast buffet from 7-10am offers the usual selections of breads, croissants, scrambled eggs, bacon, etc for ISK 2,200/day (~£12). The waffles unfortunately were stale whenever I tried them and a bit more fruit would have been nice. Alternatively you can eat at one of the many cafes around, but Iceland in general is not cheap. Did not try the restaurant (in the breakfast room, which lacks atmosphere) - there are so many more interesting restaurants nearby (recommend the Fishmarket next door) - not to forget the world-famous hot-dog stand! For cheaper alternatives, there is also a small grocery shop a few steps away.

Wireless internet access is charged extra, however you can use two guest PCs in the lobby for free. They were a bit slow, but sufficient for occasional email access.

The central location is great - all major sights in walking distance (if you have a car, you might consider a hotel with parking, which can be difficult/expensive in central R.). Airport transfer bus (Grayline or Reykjavik Excursions) drops you off at hotel after 45 min. drive (incl. transfer onto smaller bus). Had booked all my tours at a discount in advance - especially the 4x4 Golden Circle and Northern Lights were fantastic!
