“Awesome location and nice hotel once renovations are completed”
I arrived at 8 pm the day of my check in and they had to scramble to see if my room was ready which I found to be odd as I arrived late and then they said the elevator was out which can be a pain with a large suitcase. Come to find out they are doing some major renovations and when I got to my room I could see they were doing a great job. The room was all new and very comfortable for a singel traveler. Nice bathroom, good sized comfortable bed and very, very clean! Very impressed with the room with a good selection of English tv channels. And the location, you cannot get any better than this. If you are going to Reykjavik I suggest staying in the city center as it's worth it but if it's in the summer bring some eye shades for night as it doesn't get dark. And the hotel staff was fantastic, very nice and helpful. I would definitely stay here again especially when the renovations are complete as I'm sure it will be a beautiful hotel with a great location and great staff.
“Fantastic Location & Great Service in the Heart of Reykavik!!”
The location for this hotel was excellent! It was very close to great restaurants and shopping. In addition, the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms, although simple, were very comfortable and clean. Overall, this hotel was excellent and I would highly recommend it for anyone that wants to be in all of the action in downtown Reykavik!
“Fantastic Reykjavik Hotel!”
We loved the City Center Hotel. The location could not have been better, close to restaurants and shopping. The staff was very helpful and we had a great view from our room with a balcony on the 5th floor. The hotel is all newly renovated and the TV in the room has thousands of channels in every language imaginable. Hotel is located on a pedestrians only street, so a taxi and bus can't drop it right in front but a half block away, in case you have lots of luggage, something to consider. You can walk to everything from here, we only took a bus to go to the airport.
“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.
“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.
“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.
“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.
“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.
“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.
