“If for no other reason, stay for the Breakfast!”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

We stayed at the ThingHolt hotel in October 2012 and enjoyed the best "included in our price breakfast" we have had anywhere on the globe! The foyer and bar in the hotel are modern and appealing. We had a choice to upgrade our room and did so but both rooms were very nice and modern and were efficient with the space. The hotel is smack in the middle of town, so anything of interest is an easy walk. All the cafes and restaurants and shopping are right nearby. We would definitely stay again. The hallways are narrow and a little uneven but hey, who spends time in the hallways!

Room Tip: See if there is a room that minimizes the after party noise at night from the streets. Each night w...

Highly recommended - lovely, stylish hotel, very central with friendly helpful staff. Breakfast was lovely too! Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Great value as part of an Iceland Travel package.

Room Tip: Top floor can be a bit loud with nearby pubs!

HIghly recommended. Helpful staff, right in the centre of town. Very close to the information centre and restaurants. Great breakfast, comfortable and funky rooms.
I was a little bit hesitant about how small the rooms might be after reading some reviews but i thought it was a good size. Also, people had mentioned about the lack of privacy between the beds and bathroom - again i was a little bit worried as i was sharing with my brother however, didn't think this was an issue.
We also had a rental car and had no issues parking near the hotel on the street as you only pay 10am - 4pm Monday - Sat.

Had a lovely stay at the CenterHotel Thingholt. I would stay again

Breakfast was continental buffet, there was always something there and it was decent. Hotel styling is fantastic, very warm and welcoming, staff (and the whole of Iceland actually) speak outstanding English. The hotel is right in the middle of everything, and as it's next to the strip you don't have much of a walk for bars or restaurants.

Only complaint was the windows must be so thin because we could hear everything going on in the streets, which didn't help on the weekend as the clubs in Reykjavik close at 6am.

Tips:

If you hire a car, the public car park is right behind the hotel and is 500kr all day. The ticket lets your park anywhere in the city

WIFI is free and details are given to you when you arrive

Rooms are very modern although watch out, I travelled with friends and as the bathroom is all glass there is little privacy

You can request a wake up call when the northern lights are visible.

Happy Hour is every day between 5 and 7!

This hotel is centrally located in downtown Reykjavik. It is a very modern and well run establishment. Our room was on the 4th floor; small but nicely decorated, cozy and quiet, The only complaint I had was that the bed was very uncomfortable/poor quality and needs to be replaced.

Breakfast was included and very good with a lot of variety, hot and cold food, juices, teas and coffee, fantastic pastries, fresh fruit, cheese, boiled eggs and some hot sausages, bacon, etc. The staff is extremely attentive about replenishing food as needed, and clearing off tables.

The lounge/bar area on the first floor is comfortable and a good place to rest if you arrive in the wee hours of the morning as many travelers to Iceland do. They provide safe storage for your luggage and will allow early check-in if it is available. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay at CenterHotel Thingholt.

Room Tip: If you are concerned about street noise keeping you up at night, I suggest asking to stay at the far...

Gorgeous hotel with ideal location. Very comfortable stay and staff were very well mannered and all spoke very good English. We loved the fact that the hotel would wake you up, if requested, to see the northern lights. Breakfast was good too.

Room Tip: Fourth floor was very quiet.
