“Really comfortable, good price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2012

Walked around looking for a place to stay in Reykjavik, and ran into this one. City Center hotel offered a double room with only 65 euros per night, which to me sounded like a bargain taking into account the good location. I was really surprised to see that the room was really modern looking and clean, probably not that long ago it has been renovated.

The room had some luxuries I am not used to see in this price range. There even were slippers and bathrobes. I like that there was a minibar (stored my own drinks and yoghurt), water boiler and some tea and instant coffee.

We really loved our stay here and would highly recommend this hotel. The regular price seems to be higher than what we paid, but it is always worthwhile to check if there are off-season promotions available.

We could not have asked for anything more.
The hotel is in the center of the downtown nightlife district. It is in easy walking distance to shopping and dining, as well as museums, whale and puffin tours and other transportation.

The room was great. The bed was comfortable. It has a memory foam top and individual duvets. The pillows were neither too firm or too soft.

The bathroom had all the amenities we could want as well as two robes and slippers.

Our room opened out to a private balcony. We could leave the door open and enjoy the sounds of the city.

I would strongly recommend City Center Hotel to anyone looking for place to stay in Reykjavik.

City Center hotel is in the heart of the Reykjavik, with all the restaurants, bars, shops and sights just a stones throw away! Lovely rooms with great facilities, including an amazing walk in shower, plush down duvets and beds which you just sink into. The only thing I would say is that it gets noisy on Friday and Saturday evenings being on one of the main roads, with the music going on until about 5am - if you like your peace and quiet this may not be the hotel for you!

Had an amazing trip and was very sad to leave, would definitely recommend going to anyone looking for a city break which is a bit different and would return at a heart beat.

Room Tip: State double room when booking or you'll end up pushing the two singles together.

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
