Hotel Reykjavik Centrum
Ranked #20 of 54 Hotels in Reykjavik
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 May 2012

The Centrum is a very well located hotel with tasteful, comfortable rooms and a helpful staff. I would recommend it without reservation (get it?). They serve a very nice breakfast daily with cheese, cold cuts, eggs, pancakes and crusty, delicious bread and Icelandic butter. My room was very quiet at night and I slept quite well on the comfortable bed. My only nitpicks are that the bathroom in my room was tiny (although quite functional and well laid out) and that I wish that there was a bit more desk space, but these tiny things would not stop me from staying here again. Great value for the money.

We booked this hotel on the advice of our travel agent, again we owe them one. The hotel is in a really good location in Rek, and made it easy for us to get around. We did our usual and upgraded when we got there but the hotel did not charge us any extra, they moved us to one of their apartments in a small building to the side. This turned out to be great, nice room, really warm and very comfortable.
The staff are what made this hotel great, they gave us great advice and were fantastically helpful.
The only slight negative was the bad wifi reception in our room, however this is not a reason not to stay here.
Good breakfast as well and it was on all the day trips stopping off points. In fact the best trip we had was organised at a discount by this hotel for us. I would recommend you stay here as the price was good and all round a worthy hotel

Room Tip: The first room we had was a little small but the apartments are great!

Very modern and clean, with comfortable beds, spacious rooms (at least ours was) and a friendly staff. We ate breakfast in the dining room. It was buffet style, well prepared and with good variety. The hotel could not have been more centrally located. We walked everywhere from there. Parking for our rental car was around the corner at a public lot where you pay at a kiosk by credit card and display a receipt on the dash...not an issue for us, but if you're looking for in-hotel or valet parking, it's not available.

Another big plus...we had flown in from the U.S., arrived at Keyflavik at 6:20 am, so we were in Reykjavik quite early. The hotel offered to let us into a room as early as 10:00 am...which we thought was great. On most trips to Europe, one is not allowed to check in until later in the day, typically 3 pm, but in this case we were able to check in, take a nap then spend the rest of the day sight-seeing without being horribly jet lagged. Very nice.

Room Tip: We spent a little extra for their best class of room. It was a corner room with windows on two side...

Your "travel style" should dictate whether this hotel is for you or not. This was my second trip to Iceland, and last time I stayed at the business district "luxury chain hotel" before choosing the downtown Centrum for this trip. Each had it's pros and cons. The Centrum boasts superior location, extremely clean rooms (fabulous shower!), and a decent breakfast which was included in our particular package. The drawbacks were having to pay for the in-room wi-fi internet (OUTRAGEOUS in this era of technology), the very small rooms, and limited tv channels (six!) Otherwise, this hotel is perfect for its proximity to every possible shop, museum, bar, and dining establishment one could dream of. (The "luxury' chain was not conveniently located to anything really, but it seemed to cater to a more "spa-oriented clientele who expected more luxurious rooms and hotel ammenities.)

Room Tip: We didn't find it noisy as some others did, but I suggest asking for a higher floor and a room s...

Visited Reykjavik with a group of friends and stayed at the Hotel Centrum. It was affordable, clean, comfortable and the staff was beyond helpful. We arrived at 8 am and while check-in was not until 2 pm they were more than happy to allow us to check in early. It is located within minutes of walking to bars and restaurants, but far enough off the main roads that noise was not a problem. Would definitely return here!

the room we had was clean and comfortable and I can't praise the reception staff enough. They helped with trips we had previously arranged and checking in for our return flight. Breakfast was nice and a good selection of items. The hotel was in a perfect location for exploring the town and there were a lot of food choices within very easy walking distance. For us we particularly liked the laundromat which seemed to be the youthful hangout for the town. The manager was really nice giving us tourist tips and making us feel very welcome. Food was good too and a reasonable price.

If you are into stopping in the centre of the places you visit, this it it. It is on the doorstep off all the nighlife in Reykjavik and is a very clean and tidy hotel, with good food available if needed.
