This hotel was perfect for us as a couple! The staff were amazing and really helpful when we needed information and the hotel was in a perfect central position for what we wanted. Everything we needed was around us such as restaurants, bars and supermarkets. Only critical points being that the room we were in was a bit pokey but... More

Nice place as downtown as it gets. Room was mostly a bed and a dresser, but there was a small desk. Very clean. Window overlooking one of the main streets of downtown. "Fitness center" was in the basement and unavailable due to construction.

Spent two weekend-nights at City Center hotel. Clean rooms and good soft beds. OK breakfast and they even had a small à la carte restaurant with a decent menu. This is the main street so it can be quite a noisy especially during the late hours. We`ll be back.

Stayed in a single room here over a weekend in Reykjavik. The location was great and the room had all the basic amenities you would need. Staff were friendly at check in and throughout stay.

My second stay at this hotel as always the service was brilliant. We will hopefully be back next year. The double room was a little smaller than one with two single beds and being at the front of the hotel it was a little noisy on the weekend

I stayed in the hotel twice over a one-week period. This was one of the most wonderful small hotels i have ever stayed in. The staff was friendly, without fail. The rooms, both my private room and all the public spaces, were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent. Lastly, the location of the hotel was perfect - central Reykjavik... More

Staff was extremely helpful and friendly, had all the answers to our questions regarding the hotel, parking, nearby attractions and restaurants. Breakfast was delicious and very filling. There is no nearby parking, probably the only downside. We were lucky to enjoy the Northern Lights from our balcony.

Great location but it all stops there. Small hotel undergoing construction with VERY old elevator, tiny rooms. My room was not cleaned one day and with the exception of the night front desk guy, staff were not friendly. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Although the location is excellent, this hotel lacks soundproofing and is very noisy, especially on weekend evenings. The front desk eventually provided me with ear plugs, but even those did not help to dull the bass from all of the nearby bars. I actually emailed the hotel directly the day after my return home and never heard back from them,... More
