Very good location and friendly staff, but not 4 stars

The hotel is very well positioned in downtown Reykjavik within walking distance to a lot of restaurants, bars and clubs. Team members working at the reception were very friendly and tried hard to help out with directions and restaurant reservations. However, the rooms are quite tiny and somewhat spartan. The hotel serves a buffet breakfast, but it is very basic. There is no bar or even comfortable lobby area. All in all, in this case one pays for the location and friendly service, but amenities fall short of the 4-star status.

Three nights in late may

Very convenient location in downtown Reykjavik. Street facing room does get partying noise into late evening but slept ok with windows closed. Lovely bright breakfast room with nice, simple breakfast. Staff mostly helpful; Ásta particularly helpful with tours, restaurants, etc.

Definitely take out gravel insurance when hiring a car, whatever time of year as it's almost inevitable that there will be some damage however careful you are.

Good priced central hotel

Very easy check in and out. Smallish room but adequate. The beds were comfortable and duvets warm. Shower cubicle a bit cramped. Continental breakfasts were very good. I'd definitely stay here again.

Nice place to stay

The standard room was quiet (I was in the back of the hotel), clean, and the breakfast - though basic - was good. The staff is what makes the stay very pleasant, friendly, helpful, and available.

Excellent stay in the center of town

I stayed in CenterHotel Skjaldbreid for three nights in April 2014. Skjaldbreid was located in the center of Reykjavik on one of the main streets. We could walk to all of the major sites in the city. The room itself was a nice size, especially for Iceland. We had two twin beds, a desk, a closet, two chairs, and two nightstands. There were plenty of outlets in the room, and the bathroom was a good size. Our room faced the main street, but we were not bothered by the noise. I was told that it could be much louder on the weekends, so perhaps request a room that faces away from the street if you are a light sleeper. My only complaint about the room was that the pillows were clearly old- they were very lumpy and flat. The hotel breakfast was plentiful with an assortment of juices, teas, coffee, breads, cereals, yogurt, fruits, and vegetables. The hotel staff was extremely friendly. They provided us with a map of the area and also arranged our transportation to the airport on our final day. This was my second stay in Iceland, and I plan to visit again. I will definitely consider Skjaldbreid again and would recommend it to a friend.

Book excursions through Reykjavik Excursions! We did the Blue Lagoon, Golden Circle Tour, and Northern Lights tour through this company. They picked us up at the hotel and the tours were excellent.

Good location and breakfast, but that's about it

This hotel is right in the middle of things and great walking distance. Aside from that, the rooms are small and the lobby is on the 2nd fl, which means you'll have to walk up a flight of stairs. It was hard finding the entrance as the picture was misleading - seemed like the pharmacy entrance was it. Better to pay a little more and stay at the Center Plaza hotel..or even how with hotel fron, a 2 min walk away. Hotel From is 3 starts but looks better and more like a hotel. The ACTUAL entrance to centerfold skjaldbreid look more like a hostel.
