“Friendly Staff & Clean Rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Location, location, location. Thingholt is within walking distance of restaurants, shopping & the bus terminal. The staff were very friendly & helped us book day tours & bus pick ups. The rooms were very clean & comfortable. Overall a great place & I will definitely return.

We loved how central it was, but if you stay on a Saturday night, bring ear plugs. It's very loud. The rooms are nice, but are right on the street, so if noise bothers you - this may be an issue. There is also no parking, so you have to park on the street, which is paid parking. The staff was nice.

We stayed in CenterHotel Thingholt for our honeymoon in September 2010. Even though we have mentioned it in our reservation form, they did nothing to make us feel they care. I was bit disappointed with this kind of approach, particularly it was a small hotel. One greeting card or just wishing us good stay for this occasion would be enough for me.
Despite this, hotel was very comfortable and clean with contemporary design. Location could not be better. I did not like the view though. It was the inner part of the building.
The staff on the reception was kind advising us where to eat. Suggestions was quite good.
I would recommend it.

We stayed at the Centerhotel Thingholt at the end of May 2013. The location is perfect, right at the end of the main shopping district. All the main attractions are within walking distance. The hotel is very clean and modern and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We had complications with our trip due to airline delays and the desk staff even helped us make changes to hotel reservations in other parts of Iceland. We also felt that the breakfast at Centerhotel Thingholt was the best of any of the hotels where we stayed in Iceland.

Very, Very Highly Recommended!

We stayed at the CenterHotel Thingholt for two nights in May 2013. We had a Delux room on the 3rd floor.

The location was perfect, and although we had been warned that parking would be expensive we were pleasantly surprised to find parking around the corner for for 1000 a day, which amounted to less than $10 CDN. We were able to leave the car parked for two days and we didn't worry about it and walked to most places we wanted to go.

Everything was spotlessly clean and very comfortable.

The only downsides to this hotel were that the lighting in the bathroom was terrible and the mirrors were so far away it was difficult to shave or apply makeup. And although the room was actually quite spacious all floor space is filled with the bed and a large leather sofa. Certainly not deal breakers, but made things a bit awkward.

That being said, next time I am in Reykjavik we will look no farther than the CenterHotel Thingholt.

Thingholt is a relatively standard modern urban hotel with sleek design and some quirky elements. It was perfectly located for exploring Reykjavik on foot and with public transit. The best feature was the front desk staff, who were consistently pleasant and extraordinarily helpful, providing great recommendations for restaurants and bars as well as booking tours. I will definitely stay there again when I am next in Reykjavik.

We visited for a week in August '12. A very modern design hotel, ideally located. It's close to the tourist/trip booking offices, various shops and restaurants and the harbour from where you can go whale watching. Easy to reach from the airport via the low cost shuttle bus (stopes 1 min away).

We found the city to be nice but small, with a limited amount to keep you occupied for more than a few days. The beauty of iceland is easy to explore through a wide range of well priced trips - with the golden circle and Jökulsárlón the picks of the bunch. Some of it's right on your doorstep.

The rooms were a good size, spotless, there was no noise, the bath/shower was lovely and the breakfast was very good. If you're looking for a good value hotel in the city, look no further.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a larger room if you can.
