We found the hotel a little hard to locate. We thought that the shuttle would drop us off in front of the hotel- but it dropped us up the road with vague directions. We wandered aimlessly for a while and passed (yes passed it ) at least twice. For your information- it is a solid grey building with wide steps and glass doors ..the sign is small and off to the side. The hotel is just up the road from one of town squares and next door (walking toward the square) to a big and very helpful information center. There are gift shops up and down the road and many museums and bars are walking distance, as well as a supermarket. The rooms are modern and clean, but small. The bathroom also has a frosted glass wall that is shared with the closet. When the closet door is closed the glass wall is covered. The glass is cloudy so although outlines can be seen- you cannot see details. There is high speed internet..but the cord is short (about 2 feet). The entire hotel is motioned sensored with automatic doors and lights, even the stairwell. we found the staff to be helpful but not overly so. All in all the hotel is clean and modern but small...with few amenities, but a good stay.

The hotel was decent and had a great location. While the decor was fun and cool, certain elements were way over-styled. For instance, the shower was kind of confusing to operate despite it's modern design. Likewise, the room was very tiny and there was nowhere to store the leather pillows once you wanted to sleep. My only other frustration was the inconsistent breakfast service/quality; there was a good spread on the first two days and a rather skimpy one with blah service during our last two.

We did like this hotel, particularly the location as it is right in the centre (hence the name). It is a very cool and stylish place, very well presented and to a high standard however being as it is very central clearly space is at a premium and it is very small! This doesn't matter really anywhere apart from the room itself and even then isn't the biggest deal. There are cupboards etc but it just felt like there wasn't enough room for the things we had taken and we were only there for 4 days. Bathroom fan remained on constantly and was quite loud. Shower curtain is very long and hence a lot of it to stick to you and water went everywhere in the bathroom. 2 single beds and single duvets rather than a double (beds weren't so much of an issue but duvets were more so!). They didn't have the ingredients to make cocktails we ordered, but no big deal really. Very noisy till 5am sat, presume fri same (partying during the week is still a bit uncommon in iceland and frowned on in some parts) Other than those small things it was great. Oh and half price bar drinks on fri/sat too.

right next to shops and everything you Want to get to. Design is very snazzy,rooms differ quite a bit,so be careful,had a few issues on first night changing rooms twice,from 2 different twin rooms to a suitable double.but after that was good.
The staff were friendly,breakfast is good.noise on weekends in some rooms can be too much for some but was okay for us.
Would go back again!

Stayed here for 5 days with my boyfriend - perfect central location just off the main shopping street. Cosy room with a massive bath tub! Staff were very helpful, especially mark who helped with reservations & recommendations around the town.

Loved it!

it was just few steps away from the large shopping street and from outside nealy unvisible.
inside it was a great impression about the nice interiour of ts lobby.
our room was little bit small, but wit a fashionable outfitting and also a modern bathroom with nice soap and shampoo things.
breakfst in Morning was great and had little icelandic influence.
in due of its good location, there are a lot of restaurants and bars just beside!

Spent 5 days at CenterHotel Thingholt, could not ask for more. The rooms were great, brilliant cebtral location, but most of all the staff were excellent. They went out of their way to help us as this was our first tirp to Iceland, could not have asked for more. We will be going back to this hotel.
