“Reasonably priced hotel in central location”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

We stayed here as part of an Icelandair package. Very nice location with most of Reykjavik in easy walking distance. Plentiful breakfast buffet that can last you until dinner. There is a 30 euro charge to check in early but that includes breakfast on the day of your arrival and is totally worth it if you've just arrived from an overnight flight. My only issues were that the wireless internet was very weak in our room (I could only get it to work in the lobby and the breakfast room), and the hotel is currently undergoing some renovation so there was frequently construction noise from 9am to 5pm. But I would still recommend this hotel because of reasonable price and great location!

The hotel is modern, and in a very central location, close to great bars and restaurants. Don't let the slightly shabby and/or badly renovated look of the place put you off. The rooms are a good size and clean; the staff are very friendly and welcoming (one lovely chap had to break into my suitcase for me as I lost the keys to the lock!), and the breakfast was hearty and plentiful (enough to keep you going all day until dinner) - do try the rather tasty walnut bread. Bearing in mind how expensive some hotels can be, this is great value for money, and I'd stay there again.

Room Tip: If you are staying over a weekend, try and ask for a room at the back. The bars in the square are n...

This review is solely to add photographs of the fire doors on the 4th floor jammed open with a piece of wood. A block was stopping the door from closing for the 3 days we were there at the beginning of February. The adjacent fire break door was permanently fastened back with a piece of wire.
These photographs NEED to be seen by company directors who have money invested in Centerhotels, not just the part time manager.
It is only my opinion but the hole ( seen above the ceiling level ) made to take 1 wire through the fire barrier appears too big and would allow flames to pass through if a fire occurred.
I will gladly remove this review if someone in authority can convince me the remedial work has been carried out.

Excellent Location
Breakfast was the usual cheese, eggs, bacon cereals etc etc plenty of it and fresh
Rooms warm, clean and comfortable
Staff at desk very efficient but I did not find them to be particularly warm and welcoming.
Speak as you find!

One tip - I booked a transfer back to the airport at the reception desk with the Flybus. I asked the girl at the desk if I should pay her and she said we could pay on the bus.
We were picked up promptly by a small vehicle and taken to a depot a little way outside Reykjavik. The driver of the little bus gave us no instruction on how to proceed, he just let us off and wandered off somewhere - so went to the large bus which was waiting, we asked the driver if we could pay on the bus and he said no, we'd have to go back into the Depot to buy a ticket. So - if you use this method of getting back to the airport without having pre booked do not forget to get a ticket at the Depot before getting onto the main bus!

Great locatoin, and I won't speak for the rooms as we did not stay here - just used their conference rooms - but the lunch food we got served was probably the worst meal I had during my 5 day stay in Iceland. I also thought the hotel looked shabby - but that was mainly the dining room and downstairs hallways.

Location is the key for this hotel. It is a convenient walking distance to most attractions, restaurants, and shops. We were especially glad it was so close to the harbor the night we had the Northern Lights by boat tour. Couldn't get back to the warmth of the room fast enough! The staff was very courteous when we arrived and helped us anytime we had questions. Don't expect a lot of free space in the rooms or overly luxurious provisions, but it is definitely clean and comfortable.

great hotel. couldn't be more central. Loads of choice for restaurants. Tourist info right next door. Carpets being replaced as we left (so don't let previous reviews put you off). Our room was just fine in terms of size.
