Strong points for this hotel were 1) an exceptionally hospitable and kind staff, 2) very nice, abundant breakfast in a lovely room, 3) location in the heart of Reyjkavik. The rooms were clean and satisfactory with very comfortable beds. Low points: 1) Friday and Saturday night street noise (you might as well just join the party! Sunday was peacefully quiet,...

Why? Because you are paying as for a hotel, but staying in a hostel. The entrance to the "hotel" is on the side of the building with steps up, and then you need to carry your luggage one more flight up inside of the building to enter to a small room "lobby" where you will get you coffee in the...

We stayed here for four nights, very helpful and friendly reception staff - during our stay we misplaced our room key and this was dealt with in a very efficient manner. The location is great, right in the main street of Reykjavik, lots of bars, shops and restaurants all very close by. We stayed in Room 411, top floor, facing...

This hotel was not our first choice based on reviews. We had booked to stay at the Centerhotel Arnarhvoll but when we arrived were told they were overbooked and had to be transferred to their sister hotel, CenterHotel Skjaldbreid. I understood the reason was that another group had extended their stay, overstaying their original booking, meaning we had to move....

I rarely ever write reviews, but this hotel exceeded my expectations. The rooms themselves are average (clean/beds comfy/hot shower) but the service is what makes this hotel different. Tony was so nice to speak to, as were all of the staff. The breakfast is also really great! The location is right in the center of town - with easy access...

We stayed in the Skjaldbreid hotel as part of a package holiday. The hotel is simple, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast is continental style buffet with a range of breads, cheese, ham and cereals. Hot drinks are available up until 9 pm free of charge. Great location in centre Reykjavik... However, because this hotel is central on a Thursday night...

This is not a 4-star hotel by American standards - the rooms are small and plain, but the service is 5-star! We arrived very early and exhausted and despite the hotel being full, Tony the manager went out of his way to rearrange a double room into two twins for us so we could get a few hours sleep, and...

This hotel is in the best location to stay, you are in the middle of everything that is going on. Rooms are fine with comfy beds and we had a nice view onto the main Street. The breakfast options were good and it's nice that you can pop in there any time in the day for free tea and coffee....

I picked this hotel as part of an Iceland Air package. The location is the best part about the hotel. You can easily walk to all of the main attractions in Reykjavik. Everything in Iceland is expensive, so a big breakfast if a great way to start the day. Nothing hot, but cheese, meat and hard boiled eggs will last...

Decent hotel, spacious rooms, comfy beds. The breakfast was simple, but nice. You have the convenience of stepping out and being right on the main shopping street. My only complaint was that it was very loud all night because of drunk people having fun outside. Other than that, we had a very pleasant stay.
