This hotel was built into the itinerary in our trip 4 night visit to Iceland. We stayed in this hotel on 13th and 16th October.
On our arrival we were allocated a room on the 8th floor. The room had big windows covering the one wall and a view could be had over Reykjavik. There were bathrobes on the bed along with slippers. The room was well appointed, TV worked, kettle, coffee and tea, iron and ironing board. The bathroom was also well appointed with a wet room.
The position of the hotel was ideal, right in the centre of the city, with shops and bars surrounding it. The slight disconcerting thing was that we were on the flight path to the small local airport, and planes came in really low (200 - 300ft above the hotel)
Following a good night sleep, and a really good buffet style breakfast we met with fellow tourists from our party who told us how poor their rooms were. We thought that they were just been a bit picky, but how wrong we were.
On checking out we asked if we could book the same room, but were told that we had been upgraded to a superior room and that it would be an extra cost of 35 euro. we declined believing that all rooms would be of a similar standard.
We booked back into the hotel for our final night on 16th October. We were given a room on the third floor. This overlooked the square at the front, where there were groups of skateboarders, we also overlooked the coach and taxi rank. The room was sub standard. The bathroom, was once again all tiled like a wet room. The door frame inside (wooden) had twisted, lifted and distorted. There was a kettle and cups, but no supplies for making a drink at all. The fixtures were very tatty. The room seemed grubby, for want of a better word.
We had to get up to leave for our flight at 0620hrs, however we got very little sleep due to the noise from outside. Skateboarders going till about 2130, then a group of people (about 30 in all) cheering the skateboarders. After they left we had coaches and taxis coming and going at all hours, and a lot of people traffic.
In the early hours we the had what I believe were dustbin lorries. We then heard groups of people leaving to catch their flights. Following that a street cleaning lorry kept going up and down the road (must be the cleanest street in the world).
Hence we had contrasting stays. The first night when we thought all was good and would have recommended the hotel, then the last night which was pretty gruesome.
I will say that the staff are nice.
So for the first night I would give 4/5 and for the last night 2/5

Room Tip: Eigth floor

We had a really nice room with a very good view. We booked the executive double which is located in the eighth floor with a fantastic view of Reykjavic. The location is good. It overlooks the town plaza and is walking distance to the shopping street of Laugavegur, Harpa Concert Hall and Hallgrimskirkja. Lots of cafes and restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: Rooms on the eighth floor have very good views.

We had a King size bed in our standard double room with his and hers duvets (i.e. 2 single duvets), which at first I thought was odd, but now thinking of doing the same at home! No more having the covers stolen from me in the night!

The bathroom was clean and the shower was super powerful, and with my long hair I always worry what the shower will be like, as occasionally they don't wash out all the shampoo but this one was good!

The tap water was ice cold and good enough to drink. Do not buy bottled water if you can avoid it. That is possibly one of the most stupid purchases you can make, yet obviously sometimes unavoidable. Take a refillable bottle if you can to save money.

Breakfast was great every morning, although it was the same everyday. In some hotels they mix it up each day for a bit of variety, but having said that it was good and they actually have real bacon! For any of you who travel a lot, you'll know what I mean by that. The scrambled egg was more like an omelette/quiche (i.e. you had to take a slice of it) but it was still tasty. They had a selection of breads and rolls with jams, ham, cheese, pate and a variety of cereals, including porridge, and some bits of fruit. All very nice

Location-wise you can't get much better. You're right in the centre of town and within walking distance of the best restaurants, bars, and shops. Plus, all the transfers we got with Reykjavik excursions picked us up and dropped us off right outside

Overall a good standard hotel but not exceptional

Room Tip: We were on the SW side of the building and our view was an alley that looked across to flats. View was terrible but it was nice and quiet

We booked this hotel for pleasure and convenience of location and services after staying in the other Centrehotel for business. we booked it online. the morning we checked out of our other hotel we stored our bags there and took off for a day trip. When we returned at 730pm with our bags in tow for this hotel, they didn't have our reservation in their system - despite the system having charged my credit card.

hungry and ready to get on with the night, I asked that they check with the booking centre. They did, and in fact our booking was there. however, we were told that the room we wanted was not available (a room with a REAL double bed) at the price we paid. because we hadn't checked in early (we did online) they offered us a room with two single beds. I explained that if we wanted a plain room with two little beds, we would have booked oddsson for half the price. And since they were not willing to give me my money back, we were in a bind until the next day when a manager may, or may not sort it out.

anyway, turns out the DID have a room that fit our specifications, one that we already paid for by the way. They gave it to us, with attitude, for some unknown reason there was an issue with giving us what we paid for. it wasn't an upgrade of any kind. just needless bureaucratic problems that weren't ours.

the room was ok, a 3 star but with a real double bed (yesss) on the second floor facing the plaza. no bathtub, and a tiny shower. All just fine, we only cared about a big bed in a quiet room.

do not book a room on the plaza side. That's the room they gave us and we could hear every drunken noise outside and at the hotdog place outside our window.

same breakfast as the other centrehotel. rubber scrambled eggs, bland sausages and good bacon, make your own waffles, fruit and bread selection as well as meat and cheese trays.

Room Tip: don't book online, don't book a room on the plaza side
