"Great staff and location"
This was the second time I stayed at this hotel and enjoyed it just as much as the first. Helpful staff and great location. Yes, noise can be an issue if you are in the front of the hotel as the city is hoping from 1:30 to 5:30 on Friday and Saturday nights. The rest of the time you won't hear a peep. If you must have quiet arrive on Sunday morning and try and miss Friday and Saturday nights. Enjoy!

"Great hotel, beautiful city"
City Center Hotel was great. Close to everything, very nice rooms & amazingly helpful, friendly staff. Breakfast was really good, as well. Only negative to report was the smell of the water, but considering that the bathrooms were fairly large and the water always nice and hot, the smell was really not that big of a deal. Would definitely recommend this hotel!

"Nice location!"
Nice hotel in the center of the party scene. Don't stay there on a weekend if you don't want to hear outside partying. I was there to celebrate so the noise didn't bother me. Hotel was close to everything and check in was smooth. Parking was a bit strange, but I was able to park in the employee lot which held 6 cars. Hotel staff were friendly.

Wonderfully located...everything right out the door. Staff was friendly and extremely helpful. Rooms were large for European rooms. Clean. Good breakfasts. Only caveat is make sure you get a room facing the back of the hotel because it will cut back on the weekend partying noise in the area.

"Very Convenient, Very Helpful"
We loved being right in the heart of the city, able to walk to everything downtown. The staff was very helpful with all questions, and assisting in travel and tour plans. Breakfast was a reasonable price, for a basic breakfast. A convenient way to start the day and get going quickly for sightseeing.

"Excellent stay!"
The City Center Hotel was superior from the friendliness of the staff to the comfort of the room. Of a 3 week trip to France, this room had the most comfortable bed and a very stylish room. The staff was personable and helpful. We would not hesitate to book this hotel when we come back to Reykjavik!

This hotel is nice and located right on the main shopping/dining/drinking strip. I had no problems with noise, but I was there in the middle of the week. The single room was tiny by American standards (or non-child size standards), but had everything expected in a room at this price. Staff was cool and helpful, plus free coffee in the lobby.

Hotel is fairly basic but good central location near restaurants/bars and harbor. My room was a good size but was disppointingly furnished with faux Chinese antique. There was no Nordic charm. Bathroom had alot of lime scale though it did have a nice big rain shower, with good water pressure.

Enjoyed our 2 night stay at this small but comfortable hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and decent size. Bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I have slept in in a long time. The hotel offered a hot breakfast every morning for a reasonable price (considering the extremely high cost of food in Iceland). Also, the location was very convenient.

"Could not be more in the center of things."
Near the best food, near the shopping, near the new waterfront opera house, City Center has small but cheery rooms (that largely could use a little more scrupulous cleaning if our room was typical.) Reception was warm in a country not necessarily known for warmth. They held luggage, let us use the desk phone, spoke in Icelandic to airline personnel.

"Great hotel in the heart of Reykjavik"
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. The room was on the 6th floor overlooking the main strip and a beautiful view of the mountains in the background. The room facilities were great. The bed was pushed together and very comfortable. There was ample room to put all of our things and the refrigerator came in handy. The staff was extremely helpful, let us check in early, gave us recommendations on places to eat in town and even just had some pleasant conversations with us. The only thing I would suggest is to bring some ear plugs for Saturday nights. There is a very popular club across the street and it gets noisy Saturday until the early hours of the morning. It was just the one night and I have seen that other guests merely just ask for a room in the back. Or if you like to party, this is a perfect hotel since the hottest club is right across the street lol. The noise was not bad enough that it would deter me from staying here again. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

The sulfur water was awful but that seems to be very common in iceland. Bring your own hair dryer it's impossible to dry your hair with their hair dryer as it always stops working in about 5 min and then it takes another 10 min for it to reset so that you can use it again. The staff was awesome! Very nice and very accommodating!

"Convenient location with great staff"
Very centrally-located hotel, which was great since we didn't have a car. Located very close to the Iceland Excursions office, which was also great since we scheduled most of our trips through them. Room itself was nice and clean. They provide some toiletries like shampoo, body wash, toothbrush, shower cap, cotton balls, etc. Also had a small refrigerator (however, you need to use your key to power the room, so if you leave and take your key with you = no power to the fridge), a hot water pot, tea and teabags and mugs. It also had a TV that we didn't use. Staff was excellent -- very friendly and informative, looked up information for us when we needed it, staffed around the clock, and check-in was very accommodating of our strange hours (given that we were out looking for Northern Lights multiple nights).

Centrally located and extremely helpful staff. My room was fairly small, but that's common for Europe in general. Also, if you stay over a weekend, be prepared for loud music and sounds of revelry until about 4 a.m. I didn't mind, but noise canceling headphones are a good idea for early birds.

We can't imagine a better location. Only about 30 rooms so it's intimate but professionally run. Close to excellent restaurants, easy walk to harbor, Hampa, shopping district. Rooms aren't huge but they're well laid out. Breakfast is reliable. Staff is extremely helpful and as attentive (or not) as you prefer. Our double room had king mattress but two twin sized down comforters that seemed odd at first but we're really great - warm but ventilated and we didn't disturb each other when we moved. Closet had annoyingly loud iron handles that clanged when moved but that's a very minor complaint. We would definitely book again if we return.
