The CenterHotel Plaza is located right in the heart of Reykjavik, next to a little square. Propably the best location in town, with dozens of restaurants, the old harbour and Harpa concert house all with in five minutes walk.

The hotel looks modern on the outside and common spaces (lobby, restaurant, breakfast room are all new or recently refurbished. Several older wooden buildings have been added and accessed through walkways over the roads, making it an interesting combination. From what I saw all the rooms are well furnished and nicely finished and in essence all the old buildings have been gutted and rebuilt to a very good standard.

We got the last upstairs top room suite and really enjoyed our four day stay. Excellent furnishings, comfortable bed, minibar and clean and spacious bathroom.

Make sure you booking includes breakfast as eating in Iceland is expensive. The breakfast was served in a modern breakfast room, with a nice ambiance and very good selection. Cooked food included eggs two ways, bacon and sausages. Freshly baked warm bread with local jams, plenty of cheese and cold cuts. a separate mysli and cereal bar with yoghurt and skyr for the healthy options.

Room tip: Get one of the older houses, top floor facing the sea if possible.

Not sure I'd rate this a four star hotel, more a three, but as such, no complaints. The rooms were small and bathrooms very small but everything was clean and well maintained. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was a full buffet. Great location in the centre of everything. If three star is you thing this is a nice hotel in the middle of Reykjavik with a friendly atmosphere.

The Plaza is the center of the tourist district. It's a few blocks from the harbor. If you're looking for convenience, cleanliness and adequate room size, I'd recommend. Breakfast buffet is included--bacon, eggs, oatmeal, cheese, cold cuts etc.

Airport transportation: FlyBus recommended. No schedule worries--if there's a flight, there will be a bus. Buses go to a terminal where you transfer to a hotel drop off bus. Fast and seamless. Took about 1 hour to get in.

Tip: If you make a 9AM reservation back to the airport, 9 is when the shuttle starts its hotel loop. You may be picked up at 9:30.

Tip: If you're here for the architecture be advised that none of the famous buildings are even close to walking distance. Car, bus or cab.

Picked the hotel for location and price.....very satisfied.
The hotel is adjacent to the main tourist office so organising trips was very easy.
Bars and restaurants were near by...great hotel choice.
Will stay there again.

Great Hotel, we used it for a 3 day stop over on the way to Europe. It is a great way to break up the trip. Location of the hotel is the best aspect, but all other aspects were pretty much perfect. Highly recommended.
