“Central, Clean and tidy, excellent staff”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

After a flybus + drop off we were given a room on the 5th floor. this room (504) was on the side of the hotel and had a balcony. All mod cons including robes and slippers,a really comfy room. farouk on reception was a gentleman who arranged most things for us and nothing was a problem. good breakfast and the hotel is in the middle of everything. I would certainly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose 5th or 6th floor, side or rear.

This hotel is a great option if you want to explore Reykjavik. It is located right in the heart of the city so it is easy to get anywhere by walking.

The hotel staff is extremely friendly and patient, and they were all willing to help my wife and I figure out what to do and where to go.

The rooms are plenty big and very clean.

We got to the hotel at 8 am to put our bags down - check in wasn't supposed to be until that afternoon. They made our room a priority to be cleaned and we were able to eat breakfast then check in early at no additional cost. It was the nicest thing that has ever happened to me at a hotel.

There is a decent bar- the Micro Bar - in the hotel lobby. Not too loud at all and a good place to grab a beer.

If you book a Grayline transfer from the airport, it is only a 300m walk from the bus station to the hotel. It is in a Great position in the city to access many attractions. Breakfast is adequate and reasonably priced. There was A little street noise about 2 a.m. one morning for a half hour. It was quiet the other 3 nights

Nice hotel with small, comfortable rooms. Clean. Good bar. Just a few steps from several restaurants and shopping. Pretty loud at night. Caters to tours, so the desk can get jammed with folks going in and out. Most arriving jets land around 7am...a stop by the Blue Lagoon on the way into town is worth arranging. It's a pleasant way to relax and kill time before the 2pm check in.

Location couldn't get any better for me. Right in the middle of everything. Prices are affordable and rooms are comfy. Has the usual depressing scandinavian style of toilet though but you get used to it. Don't be alarmed by the smell of sulfur while showering as all hot water comes out like that! But whatever the problems are, the staff makes up for with their friendliness and eagerness to help. They always went out of their way to make sure my plans, reservations and driving routes were perfect. would go again.

Stayed here for five nights, nice and clean room, supercomfy bed and very helpful staff. Perfect location, 5 minute walk from the bus station where most tourist tours depature, so no need for pick up by the tourist companies which they offer if you stay at a hotel outside the city.

We enjoyed City Center Hotel. It was modern in design, clean and comfortable. We had landed at 7am and couldn't check in until 2pm (which is the check-in time) which was tough since we were jet lagged, but overall the experience was a really good one. I am a stickler for clean hotels and thought that the room was very clean and nice. Not sure if it's the area of where this hotel is, but the sulfur smell of the water was VERY strong and apparent in our room. I know that it can be stronger at time and at certain locations, but at times the smell was overpowering. Another cool tie bit about this place, there is a microbrew beer pub in the hotel that was written up as one Reykjavik's top bars. We didn't get to check it out, but it looked fun.
