I never arrived at my room until 6:00 AM because of a flight delay. Since I had to check out by noon it was a very short stay, but everyone I dealt with was very friendly. The room was very tiny, but a great shower and bathroom. It was all I needed....Well a few more hours of sleep would have...

Being totally unfamiliar with the city, we lucked out in finding this hotel. We were looking for clean, comfortable, centrally located and reasonably priced. It met all of these conditions and had the plus of an outstanding staff. Would definitely go back again.

I think it was one our best rooms in our 12 nights in Iceland. A very good location and nice breakfast and Happy Hour. Right in the center of everything. Actually that's all I have to say< but must go on and on!

This is a moderately priced hotel in the center of the city. It's not a bad value, but you will not get luxury. The rooms are small and not very comfortable. The bathrooms are likewise small and not very accommodating. The staff was generally friendly. Breakfast is poor. You would do better by eating in a nearby care.

Comfortable beds, clean rooms, friendly & helpful staff, hot water, nice breakfast and perfect location. The rate was a value for Iceland which is expensive. Plenty of tours can be arranged and plenty of cafes, restaurants and shopping just outside the door.

This was a great place to stay for my first Iceland experience. The staff provided nightly updates on the northern lights which was very helpful. The location in the city center was perfect for walking and exploring the city. Will definitely stay next year when we return!

Can't fault the name - City Center Hotel is located in the centre of Reykjavik, so well-placed for walking around. Parking is an issue, with a small number (5-6) metered spaces on the street. The rooms are small and clean, with comfortable beds. But it's on a busy street with pubs and resraurants, so can be pretty noisy. Prices are...

Stayed here in July 2016. Location is perfect for walking around Reykjavik, however you will hear street noise all night long, due to the active night life in Reykjavik! Ear plugs will help! The front desk staff was VERY helpful! I would skip the hotel breakfast. It was good, but way overpriced. Instead, check out the Laundromat Cafe directly across...

The hotel was in the center of all the action and close to shops, restaurants and night spots. We enjoyed our walks to many attractions from the hotel.
