I stayed here for 5 days and 6 nights, the people at the desk were incredibly helpful and the maids did a good job however the actual rooms were different and the breakfast was very limited, defiantly a good stay all together, the music at night kept me up

Simple, affordable, friendly and convenient. These are not luxury accommodations, but that's why I chose it ... to fit my budget. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms are small and simple. The location can't be beat. Yes, there is a nightlife scene in Reykjavik and it was a bit noisy on the street. Maybe bring earplugs if you are...

We were advised that our rooms at City Center Hotel would be Scandinavian "minimalist" - and they were. But I'm not a traveler who requires luxury in my lodgings - comfortable beds and a hot shower make me happy and City Center did not disappoint on either score. The included buffet breakfast was hearty with lots of options - pretty...

After moving from one hostel to the next during an unexpectedly complicated visit in Reykjavík and unable to stay with friends, I came to the conclusion that, given the cost of hostels in the city and my need to stay close to the downtown area, a hotel was worth the extra cost. I was able to find a good deal...

I enjoyed my stay here. The rooms are adequate in size and comfortable. The staff was very accommodating and the breakfast buffet was better than most. In addition, you will be in easy walking distance of loads of good restaurants. I stayed here twice and both times my rooms were away from the street, so noise was not an issue....

We arrived by bus travelling from the airport. It cost about $30 per person one way and took about 45 minutes, tickets can be purchased right outside the arrivals at the airport. The shuttle drops off at the square for this hotel, which is about 100 yards from the front door. The hotel is relatively small. It is clean, cozy...

Stayed in this hotel as part of my business trip. Good location as it is in right in the main street surrounded by lots of eateries. The room was smaller than i expected. Buffet breakfast is ok. Airport drop and any local tour arrangements are taken care by the hotel which is an advantage

Not a complete surprise based on the other reviews, but the room was quite noisy. Without the noise machine I coincidentally had with me, I don't know when and if we would have been able to sleep. the room was very fragrant with a potent perfume like smell when we arrived. For me, this was slightly unpleasant, but you did...
