Location great for walking and dining. Very noisy outside during the late night hours. Staff were exceptional with their assistance to us. Rooms were outdated and needed some very basic furniture updates.

The rooms were clean, very comfortable, great location, helpful staff, it was a little noisy on Sat night but what do you expect with 20 hours of sunlight! I would stay again. WiFi worked great when I was there. Breakfast was excellent.

The room was a great size and very clean. The location of the hotel was excellent. Walking distance to the old harbor and lots of restaurants nearby. The staff was very helpful. Transportation to and from the airport was available.

The staff were very helpful but the lack of sleep due to bar noise colors our stay. The window in our daughter's room did not close and staff could not fix it, so she was freezing all night. The rooms were clean and nicely appointed.

If you have opportunity, ask room in upper levels to avoid noisy people who come from pubs. Room was smallish but tidy. Bed was very nice. Breakfast room was small but sufficient and breakfast itself good.

This hotel is situated perfectly in downtown Reykjavik, it's close to all kinds of restaurants and pubs and tourist destinations. Also a block from the Gray Lines tour company which does an outstanding job for out of the city adventures.

Perfect location, within walking distance to shops, food, museums, harbor, bike rentals. We arrived early and they held our luggage while they prepared our room. The staff was very friendly and helpful with all of our typical tourist questions like; where to eat, where do we exchange currency etc. It is just steps from the city center location where locals...

The City Center hotel is centrally located and a good value. However, it is on a street with numerous bars and restaurants. I had the misfortune to be there on a Saturday and a Sunday. The Icelanders like to party on the weekend. The whole street was rocking until the early morning hours (like 5AM). Between the room pulsating from...

Location, location, location. Near the very heart of Reykjavik. Clean and friendly. The only downside was the loud bass guitar rumble you felt as much as heard, until 3 AM or so, from a neighboring club.

For this kind of hotel I expected more than 2M Besides the staff, the cleanliness and the really hyper center situation are top I'm sure they will improve their network because that is the only reproach I can do about
