“Warm and welcoming...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

We stayed 3 nights in the Hotel Centrum. It was a perfect location for us to explore the city from and also to get to Grayline with whom we'd booked our tours with. We had upgraded to a deluxe room which was very spacious. Superking sized beds (two singles basically put together), dressing table, wardrobe, comfy chair and a little sofa. Very nice. The bathroom was a nice size as well. There were not many free TV channels to chose from but we were not there for that.

Breakfast was excellent, cooked or continental (or both) buffets with a great variety of items to have, juices and teas and coffee of course. All you could need in honesty.

We didn't have to engage the staff much but when we did they were very pleasant.

The only mild complaint is the wooden floors - if you have anyone heavy footed in the room above you will hear them go about their business. But other than that it was a very peaceful place.

Would totally recommend and stay there again.

Room Tip: We upgraded and chose a double deluxe room at the back (well, to the side) - 211 which was excellent...

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed every minute. The room was quite large with windows on three sides looking out over a small park and a patio area on the corner in front of the archaeology museum next door. The hotel is actually located over a dig site which has been made into a museum explaining early Icelandic setllements. Reykjavik is fairly compact, so the hotel is only a few blocks from almost everything, but seems to be in a quiet corner. ( Since we were there in very low season, I can't be sure about this for times like mid-summer.) They have a good restaurant where a very good buffet breakfast was also provided for residents. The only complaint I might make is a shortage of electric outlets--we had to unplug the coffee pot in order to accommodate our computer plus several chargers.

Just back from a fantastic stay, this hotel was so peaceful we sometimes thought we were only ones staying there, breakfast was excellent, the staff were helpful, we did have problems with room door lock but this sorted immediately with room change and complimentary bottle of wine, the location was perfect short walk to bars and restaurants we will be going back to Iceland and will try stay at this hotel.

Stayed for one night. Hotel is interesting and very well located. Our room on the top floor was very small but fine for the one night. I wouldn't have wanted to spend several nights in such a small room.
Hotel is next to the settlement museum and within very easy walking distance of everywhere in Reykjavik. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

The hotel is well located in the city centre within easy walking distance to all the restaurants and café and shops in the main city. It is also within walking distance to the famous hot dog stand and burger stall. The room is clean, spacious and the hotel staff is friendly. There are great restaurants that are just round the corner. Breakfast is normal though. Will definitely stay here again if I ever come back to Iceland.

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights at the end of november. We had a great experience. Iceland is a wonderful place, and you wont be dissapointed with this hotel as a base. Fantastic location, right in the heart of the city.
Staff were really good in helping us sort out trips, including our twice cancelled northen lights excursion (3rd time lucky for me :) ) and the food was really good. Breakfast as room service came as it should, and we had no problem checking out at 4am for our early morning flight back to the uk
the only downside of this hotel was the room was a little small, with not much space for hanging up clothes. Plus the minibar fridge was quite loud if you are a light sleeper
I would highly recommend this hotel and iceland

Stayed for 3 nights in deluxe double. Room overlooked side of hotel towards the Settlement Exhibition. Breakfast was extensive (great bacon & sausage in particular). Really good sized room, with plenty of space to leave luggage, backpacks etc. around. Hotel was clean, staff were friendly & helpful. Although there was a slight delay in having our room ready, we were given a free beer whilst we waited. Superbly located for central Reykjavik - shops, museums, galleries, harbour etc all within easy walking distance. Good coffee shop across the street and would particularly recommend the Tapas Barinn nearby - warm & busy atmosphere and probably the best value meal we had in our week-long stay in Iceland. Would stay here again next time we visit Reykjavik.
