Reviewed 12 August 2016

The location of the hotel is great, it is right in the center of everything, hence the name. All of the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful even if you arrive at 5 in the morning. The breakfast is rather expensive but if you don't have early tours to catch, you can find cheaper options in the city.

Great location. Close to everything. Staff was very friendly and helpful in providing information and answering questions as we began our first trip ever to Iceland. The hotel is quaint and very close to a wide range of nice restaurants and bars and near the harbor and the Harpa performance center. Bus routes are also easy to access.

Paid over $300/nite. Very understaffed. Had to ask for help with bags-- we are handicapped. Could not easily get picked up@ door. Breakfast not included, stained chairs in room, Wi-Fi intermittent, no laundry, no currency exchange. Convenient to Downtown.

All of iceland is very expensive and this was no exception. It was ok, but would be half the price almost everywhere else in the world. My ipad was stolen when I left my luggage with reception after I checked out. The hotel didn't show much concern when I reported it.

Thanks for you review. We're sorry for what happened with you. We never had a case of stolen items in our hotel. Also the bags left with us after check-out are kept in a locked room that only the receptionist have access to and any guest is allowed inside without a staff member present and our staff is always very...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at City Center. The staff was particularly helpful in ideas for tours and even booked my Golden Circle tour for me. The room is small but perfectly suited to one or two travelers. I loved getting up and having coffee (in the room which is so nice) on the balcony. Yes it was a bit...

The room was just what I needed for myself, a bed and bathroom. I am 5'6" tall and the single bed was a good size, if you are really tall, you may want to check with the hotel for bigger room or bed. There are many places to walk from it, including the wharf. Staff was very helpful. The shuttle...

Given that Iceland is an expensive country to visit, and this hotel was equally expensive, its close proximity to the city heart and easy walking distance to many attractions made it worth the outlay.

great location. This hotel is in the heart of the city. You are right in the middle of the action. The hotel was nice. Nothing too fancy, but the location alone makes up for any shortcomings. Prepare to sleep with ear plugs. It is loud with a bar feet away across the street.

Highly recommend this hotel because of the staff. They are absolutely the best! Made our stay a pleasure. Thank you so much to all the staff. This includes the breakfast staff.

After 10 nights sleeping under the stars in the Icelandic wilderness, staying here for one night completely rejuvenated me. The staff was warm and accommodating, the shower was incredible and the bed was ultra comfortable.
