"Great hotel room for a short stay"
The location is fantastic, you're one step away from restaurants, parks, bars, and a couple blocks away from the coast. It was a ten minute walk to the Hallgrímskirkja and a fifteen minute walk to the BSI bus terminal which had shuttles to the airport. I had one of the smaller rooms, and it was great. I don't think it would have been a big enough room […] for me if I had stayed more than one night in Reykjavik, especially since I had all my luggage with me from the previous three weeks, but the room was clean and comfortable, the curtains kept the all-night light out so I could sleep, and the bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on. In fact, I should have taken all the sheets off and written down who made it. It looked like an extra-long double size (which I love, I'm too tall for a normal twin or double and prefer it over a queen when it's just me). The shower was excellent, the shower head was high and had good pressure. The only problem was there was no curtain and the half-glass wall didn't keep most of the water from spewing out into the rest of the bathroom. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Perfect place for stay before a cruise around IcelandGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"City Center Hotel"
Room was small but centrally located and close to tour bus pickups. Staff was friendly, breakfast was 10 Euros and pretty standard bacon and eggs kind of stuff. There is a bar downstairs which is packed in the evenings although I did not find that distracting.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Extremely friendly, helpful staff !!!"
Great hotel location and extremely friendly, helpful staff! Located in the center of the city, right by a supermarket, a large number of nice restaurants, and the harbor. The rooms were a little small. Free coffee available.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location, Friendly staff"
Great location, especially for weekend nightlife. Very friendly staff. Nice bar inside with microbrews. The only thing I didn't like was not being able to sleep with the window open due to noise from the street. I give it 9/10 though for sureGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very convenient location!"
I lost my wallet while in Iceland. The staff went above and beyond to try and have it returned to me. I was very greatfulGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent friendly hotel"
Front desk was very helpful! The clerks went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. Located in the center of town with many cafes and restaurants nearby. Breakfast was very good with some tasty locally made bread and cheese. Will stay again in the futureGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and awesome staff!!!"

"Nice hotel in the middle of everything"
The staff was very helpful when we needed help booking transportation to the airport. The room was modern and eclectic in style and though it was not very big, it was very comfortable and clean. There was some noise from the street due late revelers from the nearby bars but nothing terrible.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great value right downtown"
Stayed for 4 nights on a stopover back from the UK to Seattle. I had read about the rooms being small and was pleasantly surprised at the space we had. It wasn't huge but I wouldn't have thought "too small" at all. Liked having a fridge in the room--we just pulled out the mini bar items and put our own stuff in there. The staff of the hotel was great, […] helping with anything, and getting our shower fixed ASAP (it didn't drain well the first night). The bed was comfy, the bar was great and had happy hour specials. It did get noisy at night at times, but I think that is something you will run into everywhere downtown on some level. People just stayed out much, much later than we did! For a little more than $100/night I was completely satisfied with the place. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel in the center of the city"
I stayed for one night at the City Center hotel and enjoyed it very much. The room was small but very comfortable. Unfortunately the TV / Satellite did not work, but that wasn't an issue for just one night. It was close to many shops and restaurants and they booked me with a shuttle to the airport so I had everything I needed. The free wi-fi was very […] usable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Would stay again!"
Great hotel with excellent location, walkable to everywhere in Downtown Reykjavik. Staff were very helpful and the MICRO bar was a hidden gem. Overall, would definitely stay here again but would ask for a room in the back as the noise travels from the loud streets on Friday/Saturday/Sunday nights.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will definitely stay again!!"
Amazing staff! Super nice and helpful. Great location though it gets noisy at night due to close proximity to downtown bars. Wouk definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Exactky what we wanted"
While there are bigger and fancier hotels in Reykjavik, this was exactly what we anted. Right in the heart of the city center it was easy to walk to nearby restaurants, grocery stores and the central tourist information building. The staff was wonderful and all spoke excellent English. The breakfast (extra but very reasonable) was excellent. One morning […] when we were heading out on an early excursion they even had it ready earlier than the posted time so we could eat leisurely before leaving. When we come back we will definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in City Center"
My friend and I just spent a week at this hotel over New Years and we loved it. The staff went out of their way to check to see if restaurants were open/make reservations for us (many were closed for the holidays). The hotel is located right in the heart of city center. The rooms are small. My friend and I could reach out and touch the twin size bed […] next to us but the condition was great and housekeeping was great too. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Perfect Winter Haven"
We had the pleasure of staying at the City Center Hotel for 5 nights this week. We booked this hotel after reading several reviews on this site and can attest to the quality of the experience. Each of the front desk employees we meet during the 6 day stay were extremely helpful and very pleasant - after a day of exploration we always felt like we were […] returning "home" as we were greeted with a smile. We stayed in 601 facing the street and experienced very limited street noise. The room is well appointed, having a small minibar, tea kettle and coffee/tea available. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the room and room service - clothing articles and other sundries left around the room where organized when we returned. If you are interested in the craft beer scene, Micro Bar, the hotel bar is exceptional, even hosting "private tasting parties" called Beer School while we were there (nominal charge for participation, however the hosts/bartenders were very helpful, translating from Icelandic to English). The hotel is perfectly located, a fantastic value for the cost during the season we stayed and are already excited to plan our next trip back. We will definitely be staying at City Center Hotel.

"Really liked this hotel"
The staff was great; they were very friendly and would always take time to talk to us, give us advice on places to visit, and help us with our Icelandic. The location is great, it's an easy walk to shops, clubs, and restaurants. My room was a small single but it was very nice and all I needed. The only downside of the hotel was the fact that I couldn't […] sleep Saturday night since the clubs next door were playing techno music until 5:00 am and I couldn't drown out the bass even with earplugs. So I did what any normal person would have done and went out dancing at the clubs. My friend had a room on the other side of the hotel (above the MicroBrew Bar) and didn't have any problems with the music so keep this in mind. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Location Location Location"
Great location.....Island Tours pick you up right at the front door. Walking distance to Harbour Tours and pretty much all restaurants and bars/cafes Rooms small but sufficient: extra clean; great shower and plenty of hot water. Breakfast Buffet (10 euros) adequate; both hot and cold and fresh breads from a local bakery. Would stay again; saw no alternative […] lodging that "I wish I had looked into"....noise was not an issue for us at all and we had a street front facing room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location for a well rounded experience!"
After reading about this hotel in depth prior to our trip I was very pleased with what we experienced. The place is the perfect location, we walked everywhere, there is local markets, bars, restaurants of all price ranges and types of food. Great shopping is on every block. We were two minutes from the Excurision office with which we booked all of our […] day trips. The staff was amazing (and extremely attractive!) The breakfast, although some other posts mentioned was expensive, was very good. Breads from local bakeries, which we later visited, and skyr, the Icelandic version of Greek yogurt which is AMAZING! The showers were fantastic, and although the glass only covers half the shower area, the amazing shower heads and product make up for it! The water is delicious, you can drink it from the tap, the cold water is ice cold right from the faucet. DO NOT buy bottled water, the tap water is amazing. There is a beer,wine, and liquor store two stores down that closes at 1800 and a 24 hour convience store a block up the street. The streets are noisy Friday and Saturday nights, but considering the location, that is to be expected. There is a small elevator that runs up the winding staircase. It holds 4 people comfortably. Iceland is by far one of the best places I have ever visted and this hotel was perfect. It was comfortable and perfectly located. Beds were amazing. Please stay here if you are considering staying in the Reykjavik area, you will not be dissatisfied. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel with great location in the city centre"
We couldnt have asked for a better hotel in Reykjavik. It was modern, quanit and small, and as the name stated, right in the heart of the city. We were able to walk everywhere or the bus line was a block away. Our room overlooked the harbor area and had a nice balcony. The bathroom was lovely with robes and slippers supplied. Bed was very comfortable […] with warm duvets. Micro Bar had a comprehensive range of beers and real ales from all over the world and locally brewed. Nightly Happy Hr 4-7 with half price beer choice was nice if we wer in the area. Breakfast was optional at 10 euro. Had a nice spread of pastry, bread, meat, cheese, Skyr, fruit, eggs and bacon (same spread daily) plus all the coffee you wanted. A rarity in Europe. Reasonable comparied to other local eateries where you pd twice the price for half the amt of food. It can get noisy on a night but they give you earplugs if it bothered anyone that much, but we didnt notice loud noise and we had a street facing room ( 505). The staff were polite, and eager to assist us in anything we needed.I would highly recommend this hotel. Price for stay was very reasonable at the time we were there-off season.

"Will definitely stay here again!"
Our room was great - with a real big bed (not two little ones pushed together). Very comfortable! Breakfast at the bar downstairs wasn't free but very convenient and had a great selection (fresh breads were delicious). At night the bar had a good variety of brews on tap and cozy atmosphere. Location was excellent! It was an easy walk to all the main […] sites in town. And when we forgot our camera in the room the staff contacted us immediately and offered to send it to us. We will definitely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Recharge in Reykjavik"
My three nights here were a perfect recharge after hiking in the south and before heading north to the Westfjords. Great location and loved the microbrew pub attached to the hotel lobby. The owner Stone was great. Also the Laundromat restaurant/bar across the street is a nice bonus too. So was the Astur restaurant as well. Great staff and food at both […] locations.

"In the heart of city center"
My wife and I stayed at the City Center Hotel for 3 nights while we were on vacation in Iceland. The hotel is in a great location in the heart of the city center of Reykjavik. As others have mentioned it is noisy on weekend nights. We were there on a Saturday, Sunday, and Monday night. Saturday night was noisy until 5AM but we were so tired from our […] overnight flight we slept through it with no problem. Sunday and Monday were quieter. We arrived during a huge downtown festival and all of the streets were blocked off. We had to walk nearly a mile with our luggage but it was our fault for not paying more attention. The room was slightly small but it was similar to many other European hotel rooms I've stayed in before. The hotel was very nice and the staff was very helpful. I would definitely stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room I got on arrival was the size of a phone booth and fronted on the street. I got the impression that I got this room BECAUSE I booked thru Hotels.com at a reduced rate. I EXPECTED much better. The noise from 1-5AM from the niteclubs in town made sleep impossible. There was no hot water in the shower. I was moved the next nite to a room 2 floors […] above w/ hot water but the shower drain was clogged. Still noisy and small. I returned 2 wks later for 1 nite and due to all my initial complaints was upgraded to a great room-large Q bed, large bath and at the back of the hotel (much quieter). I would rather pay more and get a decent room!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really good hotel"
I really enjoyed this hotel. The hotel was right in the middle of the city, and an easy walk from where the shuttle dropped us off from the airport. I loved the friendliness of the employees. The price was very good considering how expensive Iceland is. I slept there the night of a holiday, and there were a bunch of nightclubs going on right next door. […] Thankfully, we were on the 4th floor and didn't hear it. Would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic location, great hotel, great value."
The location of the hotel was fantastic - couldn't have been better. it was right in the city center, and overlooked a park and the parliament building in the back. Overall the room was clean and modern, but there were a couple corners in the bathroom that could be cleaner. Also, the bathroom had a bad smell probably due to sewer gasses / drain. We […] just kept the door closed. The breakfasts were good, but standard fare for hotels in the area of the world. Bacon was far undercooked. One gripe was air circulation in the room. There was no air conditioning or air movement of any kind. To keep the room cool in summer, the window must be kept open, which also allowed in noise from the street. We were on the 6th floor, so circulation was adequate when the windows were open. Travelers should note that the hotel (and all in the center city area) was in the approach path of the local city airport. Planes came in directly overhead (Low) which was alarming at first, but we got used to it. The amount of air traffic wasn't much, and it became a novelty, not a disturbance. The staff was friendly and accommodating; all spoke Engilsh, and most looked like runway models (not relevant, but worth noting). The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were not firm enough. The only bed covering was a winter weight down duvet, which was too much for summer time; Improvisation required. If I went back to Iceland tomorrow, I would stay here again, no questions asked.

The hotel was fantastic and the staff were very helpful. The breakfast was not a bad value either...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great central location"
City Center Hotel is very conveniently located. Easy access to tourist offices and restaurants. Breakfast had varied selection with very delicious pastries. Note breakfast was not included in my cost when I booked room. Hotel has "Micro Bar" bar which had eight taps of Iceland beer as well as dozens of bottles of world beers. Staff was very helpful […] and respected "do not disturb" and "please clean room" requests. One drawback of its location is loud music on the weekend if you have room by the street but this would not prevent me from using hotel again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great location - lots of noise on weekends"
The hotel was very nice and the staff were pleasant and helpful. Our first night was a Saturday and despite being in the back of the hotel, it was very noisy. The noise mostly came from the outside tables of the bar located on the first floor of the hotel. The weeknights were much quieter (at least in the back, don't know about in front). The hotel […] was very centrally located. We didn't realize the street in front of the hotel is closed off in the summer for pedestrian traffic, so plan to walk a bit with luggage. The rooms were very clean. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Central Located in the heart of city!"
It is just a brand new Hotel which you will found youself central located in the city, Everything is just close by within a walking distance. Resturants around within walking distance too. Their staffs is super friendly and helpful, you will be found the hair dryer, Electric Kettles, Fridge in your room. Room size is typical European size room means […] which is not too roomy but it just find perfect for the traveller, as most people will join the local excursion e.g from Icland Excursion which is 2 mins walking distance or they will send the shuttle to piclk you up and will leave the Hotel room very early and get late when they done for the tour. To and from Airport. Airport Shuttle pick up and stop by in front of the Hotel with no distance at all. Front desk could arrange it for you. It was plesant stay and I would definitely come back !!!!
