Great location. Great breakfast. Terrific staff. Odd bedding. Very odd shower.

Well located in walking distance to most downtown areas

Great hotel and awesome location that's directly across from the sea/bay. About a 5min walk to everything downtown. Hotel was clean, included breakfast and even has a spa in the lower level of bldg. Take in the upper sky deck for views (8th floor) and hopefully you get

Excellent location. Good view from SKY bar & restsurant. Good front desk personnel Poor bathroom with unacceptable shower.

The property had an excellent view of Harpa and the water that no other Center Hotel has. In addition, there was a lovely spa below the first floor that was additional $$ that was worth the price, to relax in after a day exploring. The front desk manager Daniela was helpful both prior to our arrival and during our stay, as was every other staff member. We could not have enjoyed it more and intend to come again soon.

Fabulously friendly staff! Breakfast excellent...lots of proteins and hot items. Yes, eggs are reconstituted but they serve a lot of people! Very quiet rooms. Sm window opens for fresh air. Windows on view rooms need a scrubbing...only real fault.

loved the restaurant staff! the morning front desk staff was great too.

Great location and gorgeous view. Rooms are comfy and very quiet.

Very good location. The staff was OUTSTANDING - as good or better than at Ritz-Carlton. Room and facilities were very clean. Breakfast was excellent. Restaurant was good. Even though we had largest deluxe room, it was small and the bathroom was TINY.

Nice hotel close to Harpa and Excellent Breakfast.

Rooms were small bed was not comfortable. staff very pleasant and accommodating. Hotel was within easy walk to see and bus station

Pros: Great location. Easy walk to food and sights. Across the street from the Harpa bus stop for many tours and airport bus. Great waterfront views if you’re in that side of the property. Breakfast buffet was smaller than most in the EU, but high quality. Staff was super personable. Cons: the shower seems like it was designed by an insane person. It’s nigh impossible to take a shower without flooding the room. The room are on the smaller side. I could get a steak in the US for what I paid for a club sandwich in the restaurant . One that was outclassed by most bus station vending machine sandwiches

Excellent location for both exploring Reykjavik and for getting picked up and dropped off for tours. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room is small, but adequate - it's only missing a place to put your clothes - there were no drawers or closets. This is a hotel room designed for people who only plan to sleep and bathe there, it's not really a room for hanging out in, but then again, you don't go to Iceland to hang out in your room. I would definitely stay there again.

Very, very small room. Hallway carpet was worm throigh. People oitside could see right in (2nd floor) so we had to keep blackout curtains closed lending to an extra claustrophobic feelong. Extra cost for use of small hot tub which was dangerous (I fell).
