Hotel Reykjavik Centrum

Reviewed 23 July 2014

1st time in Iceland/Reykjavik and stayed for 2 nights at this hotel. Excellent location but to be honest,Reykjavik is so small(rather like a small town than a city) just about any other hotel is also well located in my opinion! Hire car and arrived on a Sunday so parking was free in a parking lot just around the corner. There are also places to park on the street nearby but not directly in front of the hotel.Parking charges Mon-Sat 10am to 6pm and 120 isk/hour so about £6 for the day which is incredibly reasonable,especially in Iceland as prices are sky high for most things!
Room on the 4th floor.Lift access.Some dirty looking carpets in the common areas when you exit the lift but the actual room clean(wooden floors) and well specified.And free Wi-fi! Nothing truly special or memorable about it but also no major criticisms either. Breakfast-good selection of hot and cold foods(not bad for Iceland as we later found out at other stays). Just a short walk from the MAIN street which goes through the centre of Reykjavik(full of shops and eateries,bars etc),and is situated at the base of this street. Also a short walk to the Icelandic National Museum 15-20 mins.Would happily say here again.

Room Tip: Room 414, which was looking over a quiet side alleyway/street which had an ok view and was still qui...

I've stayed for 6 days. Excelent hotel, in a good place in downtown, close to the harbour and the main street of the capital. Clean, good and confortable room and delicious breakfast Excelent free wi-fi in the room. Definitely, it is a big option to stay in Reykjavik.

The hotel's site says their rooms have minibars, 24h room service, and TVs with pay TV & Satellite TV. Tripadvisor says they are a four star hotel. The rooms don't have a minibar, and there is no 24h room service and the TVs are tiny with snowy picture quality. When asked, the receptionist said "we decided to remove minbars a while ago". "Can you please come down, we have wine here and I'm alone so can't bring anything up." So, no minibar and no 24h room service. The in-room information book still states they have a minibar "stocked with a selection of snacks and drinks" and about room service: "after 10:30pm the reception staff will take your order". When I came down to get a bottle of wine and saw they only had (expensive) 200ml bottles he commented "if you would have gotten to the bar before 11pm the bar would have still been open". Again, their website says 24h room service, their in-room info book says their cafe and bar open until 11:30pm. They're obviously free to make changes; but not updating marketing materials and even in-room materials is misleading and frustrating. Especially if the receptionist says "you can talk to the manager tomorrow if you want to complain" instead of acknowledging the unfortunate situation and dealing with it professionally. We prepaid this hotel (through a service which confirmed 4 stars) which adds to the frustration. Positive is that it's a clean, reasonable size room.

We stayed twice at the Centrum on our recent 16 day trip to Iceland. I expected it to have some interior charm as it does occupy historic buildings but this is not the case. On our arrival at around midnight the desk clerks told us we were not booked there. We of course had a voucher showing we were. It appeared the hotel had by error entered this booking by our travel firm also based in Reykjavik for July instead of June. While the clerk then told us he had a deluxe room available, there was no apology for what we believe was their error (travel firm booked more than a dozen other hotels and transfers without any errors). We were given a second floor room facing the street on a Saturday night. It was very noisy until at least 3 or 4 AM. The room was satisfactory but calling it deluxe is sort of an exaggeration. The breakfast buffet was fine but the dining room has limited seating in the busy tourist season. On our second arrival at the end of our trip, the more friendly and helpful desk staff told us due to being fully booked they had upgraded us to one of their apartments in a building next door and off the main street. While we did not need the kitchen, those staying in Reykjavik for several days might want to consider it. The apt has a nice sitting area which the deluxe rooms in the hotel do not have. The location of the hotel is great as you can walk to all areas in Reykjavik easily from there. On the other hand, on weekends as mentioned it can be noisy outside. Good restaurants are walking distance away as well. The good location should not be overlooked as we saw some hotels too far from areas of interest or restaurants to allow walking.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that is higher up and not on the front especially if staying there on a weekend.

I've stayed there for a week in May. The hotel is right in the city center, a few steps from the Parliament building. The room I had was quite nice, with a big bathroom and always spotless. I found the hotel to be pretty expensive for what they offer, but then that's quite normal for Iceland, in the high season.

We found this hotel to be very enjoyable. It is centrally located with lots of restaurants and interesting artisan shops within a short walk. The rooms were small, but clean and comfortable. Breakfast one day was tough, but that was due to a big tour bus full of particularly rude people - not the fault of the hotel. The breakfast was great. Lots of choices for every member of the family - but we aren't really picky eaters.

Great hotel at a perfect location. I stayed one week. One big complaint: The wifi never worked at my room. I had to go to the lobby to use it. That is unacceptable for a hotel that charges more than US $ 400 per night.
