Historic hotel with a fascinating history. It's in a great location just a few steps away from cafes, restaurants and attractions. The cafe bar has some great food at a reasonable price and a happy hour from 5-7pm every day. The rooms are comfortable and all of the common spaces are modern and welcoming. Staff are friendly too. Highly recommended...

Easy walking distance to everything. However, street level rooms aren't the greatest, as there's no control over the temperature, which is kept at far too high. This means you have to have your window open, which results in drunk people talking to you through it in the middle of the night. Otherwise, pleasant staff, clean rooms and great location.

Ok hotel. Centrally located for your tourist stay. Beds very uncomfortable. TV was a nightmare to use. Couldn't control volume or turn it off. Front desk response was to unplug it. Dear TripAdvisor: I have nothing else to say.

Hotel is located in downtown Reykjavik and its location is within easy walking distance of the majority of sights, bars and restaurants. The bar food menu may not offer the biggest selection however the food served was delicious and very reasonably priced by Icelandic standards. Plus you can take advantage of their “happy hour” from 17.00 to 19.00 with 2...

Landed in from Birmingham on the way to Canada. 24 hours is too short to do the city justice but very enjoyable. The Centrum is very central as name suggests. Great room, great staff. Very surprised to see the lake with all of the ducks, geese and swans. A great place to photograph. It made my trip. The second big...

Two nights at this hotel in Central Reykjavik. The first night was awful. We had been 'upgraded' to an apartment in a separate block next to the hotel. What a noisy room this was, no sleep at all, so in the morning I went to reception and asked if they had a room in the hotel for our last night...

Mixed experience in this hotel unfortunately. Requested a room change after one night as the first room we were in was uncomfortably hot for no reason and the bed was overly creaky and noisy. We were kindly moved to a different room which had no issues with temperature and the bed was slightly less creaky. Personally I had no issues...

I recently stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, 3 days. Although the rooms are a bit small, the staff is so helpful as to make up for it. The bar is terrific and has a very interesting menu. They had reindeer steak, but it was not available. I had fish and chips and it was delicious. The chips were...

The hotel was centrally located - you can walk everywhere. You have to pay for parking which is across the street - pretty easy process. Rooms are clean and basic, staff was friendly. Good room for the price considering how expensive everything is in Reykjavik!

This small and proper hotel in the middle of Reykjavik is nice and clean. You do easily walk to the famous places in Reykjavik center. But don't eat here! Go to a neraby restaurant for lunch and dinners or take the opportunity travelling around the island!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Reykjavik Centrum is a new first class hotel in the heart of the city, opened on April 1st 2005. It is located on one of Reykjavik’s oldest streets, Adalstraeti, in a newly renovated building, the oldest part of which was built in 1764. On each side of it, new buildings have been constructed in the likeness of their historic predecessors. The hotel spreads over all three buildings, and is designed in the style found in Reykjavík around 1900. During its construction, the remains of a Viking longhouse from the Settlement Period were found. Among the finds excavated at the site were Iceland’s oldest human remains, dating from approximately 870 AD.The hotel has 89 rooms, each fitted with modern amenities, such as satellite TV, telephone, Internet access, mini-bar, radio, iron and board, hair dryer, safe and tea & coffee set. All rooms have en-suite bathroom with either a shower or a bath. ... more   less
