Sandpoint, Idaho
Reviewed 1 week ago

Accommodations all over Reyk can be on the small side (my room at city-center was itty bitty). Thought $200 USD a night for a closet (not including breakfast) was a bit spendy. But, the location is nice and the staff helpful.

I went back and forth with my feelings about City Center Hotel - stayed there for a week in February. Overall, I had a really good stay. If you're someone used to a large room with lots of space and amenities, like a Hilton or Marriott, this is not the place for you. I'm going to break down my review...

Thank you for your review. Our Staff is more than happy to help you. As we're on the middle of the Center of Reykjavik, sometimes the Icelandic Night life can be a problem to our guests, we apologise for it.

This is a awesome little Hotel nestled in the downtown area. There are shops and Restaurants all up and down this street. It is just a few blocks from the Harbor attractions. A lot of Museums in walking distance. I have included photos from our room on the 6th floor. Very close to a little town square that has a...

Walked through the huge glass door in the side of a building to discover a modern warm and welcoming reception. Very modern interior, spotless and a hot chocolate drink. That was just the start. The staff spoke fluent English . The room was as good as any I have stayed in , in mainland Europe . Spotless and the bed...

Stayed here for four nights during our first visit to Reykjavik. It is perfectly located to get out and about in the city and is well staffed with helpful, polite and charming reception staff. I would happily stay here again.

Extra friendly staff. Everyone that works here is friendly and helpful. Everyone spoke English and it is very clean. Really enjoyed our stay here, it's local to a number of bars and good food places and around 5 mins from all the local attractions. We stayed in the third floor and there was vague noise from the bar across the...

This is a perfect place to stay if you wish to be right in the centre of the city. We were very fortunate to have a back room which was quiet and comfortable. This hotel is simple and clean whilst the rooms are not enormous. The team who run the hotel are young, energetic and very helpful. Particularly Juste who...

Simple, affordable, friendly and convenient. These are not luxury accommodations, but that's why I chose it ... to fit my budget. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms are small and simple. The location can't be beat. Yes, there is a nightlife scene in Reykjavik and it was a bit noisy on the street. Maybe bring earplugs if you are...
