Hire a car (we used SadCars) it is so easy to drive there, cheaper than the bus tours if two of you and much more flexible

Wonderful Hotel

We stayed one night at Center Hotel Arnarhvoll. We were staying at the Center Hotel Thingholt (another great hotel) and at the last minute booked an extra night -- this hotel was available. The location is perfect and the view looking out over the harbor and the Harpa Center was beautiful. Rooms were clean and modern and staff was very friendly and helpful. This location would be a little better than Center Hotel Thingholt on a Saturday night when everyone parties all night. Very Highly Recommended.

Great location, outstanding service

The view across the bay and of the Esja mountain from the top floor restaurant at Centerhótel Arnarhvoll is the finest in Reykjavík. Take it all in during the buffet breakfast. This hotel is among the best value deals in the city. It is within a short walking distance of the centre. The staff is courteous and efficient. The rooms are comfortable. The shower area is badly designed causing water to splash around the entire bathroom. This is the only annoyance in what is otherwise a great place to stay in in Iceland's capital.

Casual, comfortable hotel with very friendly vibe

In our two visits to Reykjavik in 18 months we stayed at four hotels and this was our favorite. It's across from the Harpa Concert Hall -- a must-see -- and just two blocks from the main shopping street. We spent a nice long evening enjoying the view, food and drinks in the Sky Bar (all superb) and all you have to do is just go downstairs for a pretty fine spa experience with sauna, steam, hot tub, showers and relaxing area. Our room was a decent size, not spacious but functional and comfortable with great duvets and reliable Wi-Fi. The staff is gracious and helpful in every way. The hotel is a little austere-looking on the outside but inside you'll find a very friendly vibe. Highly recommended!

Happy hour in the Arnarhvoll's Sky Bar is a good value, and for a light dinner try the incredibly good salmon salad.

Nice Location

Hotel is in a great location if you want to walk throughout the city center. Staff is pleasant and the breakfast buffet was good. Another review also mentioned the issue with the bathroom and how almost impossible it was to shower without flooding the room. This happened to us also due to the odd half shower door setup but was easily cleaned up with extra towels from front desk. Light blocking shades were good for the time of year we visited and highly appreciated.

Great central location, slightly tucked away

Very warm welcome when we arrived very late at night. Clean room with a view that was easily accessible from walking from uptown or downtown Reykjavik. Breakfast included was convenient, but mediocre. We thought the spa was included but we were told it was extra for us..so we skipped it. All in all, we would stay at a centerhotel again! Free Wifi!!!

Dining in Reykjavik doesn't have to be expensive! Stop at any cafe for a full lunch and a great latte.

4 nights in Iceland

Stayed here for 3 nights and 1 night in a different hotel while on a stopover in Iceland in June. Rooms are small but efficiently laid out which seems to be typical for the region, perfectly nice and clean with a modern touch. Located at the edge of the main part of town, near a fairly busy street which takes away some charm. But nice happy hour with great views of the harbor and lots of options at breakfast. Staff was helpful with questions, restaurant suggestions. Would definitely recommend.
