Our stay at the City Center Hotel was wonderful! Bathrobe & slippers were awaiting us. Our balcony room overlooked the city. The manager & staff were very helpful in making our stay pleasant. They would even arrange tours, etc., for us. The buffet breakfast was fabulous. So fun to try some Icelandic fare too. Enjoyed the lattes & cappaccinos also. We were returning on Icelandair from our Tulip Time Cruise in Holland & Belgium. The option to stay in Iceland & still be considered a roundtrip ticket had appealed to us. We were not disappointed! City Center Hotel was a perfect location to explore the area. The Gray Line Tours office is just a few blocks over. Highly recommend the Golden Circle Afternoon Tour. They will do hotel pick up & drop off too. The Grey Line also took us back to the airport.

Lovely hotel in a fantastic central location. Not to noisy on the side by the square, if you want to party you are in the right spot.
Reception staff were friendly and helpful.
Bathrooms were massive! Lovely showers, nice smellies.
Breakfast is reasonably priced and good selection is available :o)
Very comfy beds, free wifi, Satellite TV with lots of channels.
Perfect spot to explore this gorgeous city.

Room Tip: Go for square side, not too noisy. Some of the rooms have balconies

I have just returned from a long weekend here & what a lovely hotel it is - I have stayed previously at the Radisson 1919 which is also a good hotel but doesnt have the personal touches of this hotel, every day the reception staff greeted you & wished you a lovely trip if you were going on an excursion & then asked about it upon our return.
Location - you couldnt get better, rooms are small but dont really feel it, they are cosy & very clean with nice little extras ie robes, slippers, big bottle of shampoo & shower gel & other personal items.
I would definately recommend this hotel.
I would agree with other reviewers though, this city is VERY noisy Fri & Sat so you need a room high up unless of course you are out partying with the rest of them!

I recently returned to California with nice memories of my stay at City Center Hotel. My family and I appreciated Heiðrún Harðardóttir who was always there helping us with tour bookings and answering our questions. Her warm, courteous and professional persona convinced me that I love Icelanders. City Center Hotel was the perfect spot to walk around Reykjavik and grab the tour buses. The rooms were cozy and clean. I am truly thankful for the other staff members that recommended great dinning. What a wonderful experience. Thanks again Heiðrún!

Room Tip: Always ask the front desk for support. They were there to guide you.

City Center Hotel was a great place to stay in Reykjavik!! I went with some friends to see Iceland, and for the time we stayed in the capital, City Center was our home base. We found it was close to everything, and run by a great group of people. The manager was as helpful as could be, helping us to make arrangements for services around town and around the country. They really took great care of us. All of the staff was nice and the breakfast brunch was delicious!!! The rooms were classy and comfortable, and some had really nice views. Whether we were starting our day or ending it, City Center was there for us and made our trip go smoothly and comfortably.

Room Tip: Ask for a big room with a great view!
