Just back from a 3 night break in Reykjavik and the City Center hotel was in a great location, with shops, restaurants, bars and tour guide companies right on the doorstep. Due to the reviews on Tripadvisor mentioning the noise at weekends I did request a top floor room at the rear of the hotel. We were given room 603, on the top floor and at the rear of the building and had no problems with street noise. The only thing I would say is that the internal walls are not well insulated for sound and occasionally we could hear our neighbours chatting. Luckily they were not a noisy lot.
The breakfast was good, plenty of choice. There is free WiFi in the hotel (this also applies to most cafes/restaurants throughout Reykjavik) - so no need to worry about the mobile phone bill. The Reception staff were very helpful. We arrived before the stated check-in and after a short wait, with a complimentary coffee, the room was ready for us.
If travelling to and from the airport with Iceland Excursions there is no need to book direct drop off at the hotel, as their office and bus terminal is just 2 mins walk away.
I would definitely stay here again.
