Center Guesthouse
Ranked #83 of 108 Reykjavik B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We stayed there for one night, a little bit dated place but we would recommend it.
Bathrooms are clean and bed was very comfortable.
The location is good - not long walk to the town centre. There are pubs and restaurant around.
B&B is located in a quiet spot.

Reviewed 13 September 2013

I had to work in Reykjavik for a week and stayed at the Center Guesthouse for a week.

Location: the location is as the name of the guesthouse suggests in the 'center' of Reykjavik. The Hlemmur city bus station is about a minute away and most things you may want to reach in the city center is within a 10-15 minute stroll. The actual location of the guesthouse makes it a little difficult to find. 102b is written on the wall next to the arch way to get to the entrance of the guesthouse.

Check-in: there is no reception and you have to retrieve the room key from a little box next to the entrance. It is not difficult but there is a little latch on the left that you need to press to access the key. The owner (?) came around and collected payment the first afternoon I was there.

Room: I stayed in the double en-suite room. The room was small and there was no wardrobe, hangers or similar. The room had a comfortable bed, a small desk and a chair. There is a mobile/cell phone to use if you need to contact the owners. The bathroom was very dated, circa 1970s but it was very clean. The room was also very clean. The WiFi worked fine through my stay.

Breakfast: there are no meals provided. There is a kitchen in the basement with two fridges with room number labelled shelves. I kept my breakfast in a shopping bag there but one of the other guests stole my food on one occasion. Which is an issue as the system used at the guesthouse depends on guests not stealing each others' food.

Overall: this is a clean but VERY basic guesthouse. I recommend Center Guesthouse if you want a clean and reasonably (for Icelandic standards) cheap place to stay whilst in Reykjavik.
I would not recommend anyone staying more than one or two nights.

We stayed here the first day of our Iceland vacation. The guesthouse is located very close to the Laugavegur shopping street, where you can find shops and a supermarket. Our room with an ensuite bathroom was clean and comfortable. They provide free wifi, a cellphone in the room to contact them, and there is a kitchen you could use. Since there isn't a reception desk, the checkin procedure is a bit complicated, involving using a code to release the key.
