Very good beyond my expectations. Well decorated and comfortable. Good breakfast, and good location. Highly recommend. it's just not that easy to find a parking place during summer when tourists rush into Iceland.

Mostly just a place to rest your head, no space to hang out, couldn't even open suitcase in room as it was too small. Breakfast was very good. Close to taxi stand and bus stop. No black out curtains and very loud at night.

City Center Hotel was a very nice small hotel right in the middle of downtown Rejkjavik. There is no better place to stay right in the middle. Very friendly staff and nice and clean (small) rooms. Absolutely recommendable.

We loved the location once we finally got our bags into the room. We had three people in a double so it was tight . I recommend booking ahead to avoid this. It was a blast to hear the music and street life below while we were in our room on the 5th floor!

We recently stayed at the hotel in the middle of town and it was the perfect location! It is in the middle of everything! Mainly, the middle of hip and very cool Reykjavik. The room was comfortable and up to date with an eclectic vibe. We had a Chinese Wedding Armoire/chest as our closet. Blackout curtains, a nice view of...

The location of the hotel is great, it is right in the center of everything, hence the name. All of the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful even if you arrive at 5 in the morning. The breakfast is rather expensive but if you don't have early tours to catch, you can find cheaper options in the city.

Great location. Close to everything. Staff was very friendly and helpful in providing information and answering questions as we began our first trip ever to Iceland. The hotel is quaint and very close to a wide range of nice restaurants and bars and near the harbor and the Harpa performance center. Bus routes are also easy to access.

Paid over $300/nite. Very understaffed. Had to ask for help with bags-- we are handicapped. Could not easily get picked up@ door. Breakfast not included, stained chairs in room, Wi-Fi intermittent, no laundry, no currency exchange. Convenient to Downtown.

All of iceland is very expensive and this was no exception. It was ok, but would be half the price almost everywhere else in the world. My ipad was stolen when I left my luggage with reception after I checked out. The hotel didn't show much concern when I reported it.

Thanks for you review. We're sorry for what happened with you. We never had a case of stolen items in our hotel.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at City Center. The staff was particularly helpful in ideas for tours and even booked my Golden Circle tour for me. The room is small but perfectly suited to one or two travelers. I loved getting up and having coffee (in the room which is so nice) on the balcony. Yes it was a bit...
