Great location in the center part of town. Minutes from walking to restaurants, shops, and all the important sites. Rooms are small but very comfortable and clean. The staff was excellent and very friendly as well. We stayed in Rm201 - you will pick up some staircase and street noise.

We stayed here for 3 nights, the hotel is small only 33 rooms. But it's central location is absolutely fab, easy walking distance to restaurants, the harbour and local shops. The rooms are small but we were only sleeping there spending most of the days and evenings out enjoying the sights and dining in the local restaurants. Breakfast is continental...

This is not a luxury hotel and it doesn't pretend to be. What it is a good hotel in the city center that won't break the bank. The bedroom is basic but comfortable (I would have preferred a proper double bed instead of 2 singles put together for myself and my wife). My only small gripe is the lack of...

We stayed in the hotel for two nights, the first night was in a small room facing the side street. It was small but clean, It had a gathering under the window of young people about 1-6 in the morning very noisy, we asked in the morning to change rooms as we had had very little sleep. We were informed...

Excellent location for centre of the city. Very clean and functional. Warm and very comfortable. Due to lack of building space all hotels in the center of the city generally have small but very comfortable rooms. Helpful staff. Breakfast is a wide variety of fresh local produce. Coffee and tea available during the day. Ice if you need it. Location...

The Center Hotel Skjaldbreid is situated right in the heart of the shopping / bars district of downtown Reykjavik. The reception is small but nice and staffed throughout the day. The breakfast area is on the third floor and the views are not the best. The breakfast was nice, consisting of breads, cheese, meats, cereals, the conventional European breakfast. We...

We stayed in two of the Center Hotels this one and the Austurstraeti. The Skualdbreid is not bad. The hotel staff are very helpful. The breakfast room is on the top floor and bright and sunny. Depending on where you are in the hotel the rooms a be a little noisy from the street traffic, particularly in the winter when...

I stayed at this hotel in February 2015 for 4 nights, it doesn't look much from the outside, but the rooms are reasonable, bed was comfortable, the breakfast was a disappointment, not much choice or variety but could make do. The staff were very helpful and for our excusions there was always a notice at reception stating whether they were...

The location could hardly be more central, which alone is sufficient recommendation. The room and bathroom were small and poorly laid-out, with bruised elbows at almost every turn, but functionally adequate. The breakfast is acceptable, but only thanks to the pastries -- the 'flaps' of processed ham and cheese on their own would have been a bit too sad. The...

We stayed here in January for 4 nights. Rooms are quite basic and small but clean. Very comfortable beds which were well needed after a days sightseeing. Bathroom is tiny! Breakfast was included in our stay, continental style, bread, cold meats and cereals. Location was brilliant for our stay as it was so central for walking everywere. Would recommend this...
