Staff and location excellent. There is a bar nearby and noise continued until 3 am

Excellent location in Reykjavik. Could walk to most of our desitnations. The parking is tricky, but not difficult. Just need to park one block up from the hotel and it is fine! The staff was superior and very helpful. It was a fantastic place to start our journey. It was a bit noisy on the second night because of a live band next door, but the staff moved us to an inside room for the next night and it was peaceful and restful.

The hotel was modern and even though our room was small they did a good job using the space. The staff was very helpful and nice

Had a super time. Staff was terrific, food was outstanding.

Great location and convenient to major tourist things. The room is very small. The concrete surrounded tub is a challenge to get in/out of without hurting yourself. The shower fixture and bathroom windows were broken.

Hotel was in the center of town,Hotel was comfortable Staff very welcoming and friendly.Each morning greeted by lovely smile of the staff at the breakfast area.Lot of variety of breakfast foodWw could walk to all the resturant and gift shops and all the attraction.We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel

Hotel is close to town and baby restaurants and shops. Staff is extremely friendly

Staff was very helpful making dinner reservations, getting taxis and offering advice. Location was outstanding. Easy walking to museums, Old Harbor, pubs, shopping, and restaurants. The downside of the location was that pubs played late-night music, and if you were on a lower floor, it was tough to sleep.

Great location, cleanliness and helpful staff. The 'blackout shades' did a good job blocking the midnight sun, also.

Only critcism is that my view was the back of other buildings. The staff were excellent, every one I met!

The Center Hotel Thingholt could not have been a better choice for my brief 4 day stay in Reykjavik. The location of the hotel for my in town activities was superb. Don't be put off by the somewhat banal appearance of the exterior of the building because once you pass through the entry doors you enter a beautifully designed and welcoming atmosphere for your stay. I am partial to clean contemporary interiors and this was just right. The staff at every level was superb throughout my stay. I will certainly return to the hotel Thingholt on my next visit to Reykjavik.

We had a great time staying at the Centerhotel Thingholt. The best thing was the location, just around the corner from the main shopping street, and within walking distance of most major attractions. Breakfast was good, staff was friendly, room was clean, though on the small side, but you don't come to Iceland to stay in the hotel room all day. I've read other comments about the noise but didn't have any problem with our room facing the street. I had earplugs with me and could not hear the loud partying outside on the Friday.

Great hotel and service, but the bathroom in my room was smaller than a small closet making it hard to stand and move your arms. Still quite nice for one person.

We traveled in Iceland over winter solstice...our room was a perfect place to enter the dark season and adapt our body clocks...Very comfortable and cozy, gorgeous bathroom, excellent and abundant breakfast buffet. We would stay here again for many more days. Perfect central location in the capital.

The perfect experience! Great breakfast, friendly staff, comfortable room - all in a hotel located centrally in downtown Reykavik

There are Centerhotels all over Reykjavik but Thingholt is great! The room was spacious. The bathroom was also a nice size and the bed was super comfortable. Reception was excellent- always very helpful. Breakfast, included in the room rate, was delicious and plentiful. There was a great variety, from eggs, to skyr (Icelandic yogurt), to lox and pickled herring (if that's your thing!) Thingholt is located off of the major shopping street and is a very close walk to downtown. There is also a public bus nearby. We stayed during the week but I hear that staying in the front of the hotel can be noisy on the weekend- ask for a room in the back on a higher floor.

I really enjoyed this hotel! We stayed here on our last night in Iceland after traveling in the country side. The lady at the front desk, Clara, was very friendly and helpful. She even booked a Northern Lights tour for us last minute with one of the tour companies. This hotel is about 1/3 of a block off the main shopping and partying street, so it might get loud on Friday and Saturday nights. We had a great view of the harbor from the 4th floor though. The hotel room was beautiful, but small by American standards so don't expect a huge room! The included breakfast was great and they had real coffee!

It was a great hotel, great location. Very much worth it

Nice hotel with a great location. Friendly, helpful staff!

I stayed here for two nights and liked the hotel. The room was really nice and we enjoyed the hotel breakfast. Our only complaint was that the room was fairly dark and there could have been more lights. I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again if I visit Iceland again.
