Recent guest reviews

The woman working the front check-in desk was so friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed the complimentary drink at check-in and the macaroons waiting for us in our room. The hotel breakfast is also wonderful and complete with salmon, eggs, bread, bacon, sausage, fruit, pastries, oatmeal, and cheese.

Really enjoyed our experience at CenterHotel Thingholt. The front desk staff was fantastic and very helpful.The restaurant team for breakfast was outstanding. My wife and I had a massage in the spa and thoroughly enjoyed that as well. Highly recommend this hotel when you are in Reykjavik. It is very close to shopping, dining, and local attractions. Rooms are clean and well maintained.

A really nice place to stay right in the center of town. Very convenient for local stores, coffee shops and boats to see the whales from.

Very nice hotel in the center of everything and walking distance. Super nice staff.

Easy, clean, large room and great breakfast. Great location to car rental return and walking distance to airport.

Loved the hotel. The food was fabulous! The front desk was very helpful with recommendations and transportation arrangements.

wondeful hotel next to bus stop, shopping and restaurants, immaculately clean, very helpful and friendly staff; will return in the future

Stylish hotel in centeral location. Helpful staff, good breakfast and nice spa.

Great location, great breakfast, exercise room is minimal, loud bass beats at night on the street side.

Centrally located. The sauna is only a steam room and all is quite dark in the spa area.

Great location, incredibly helpful staff and a nice size room. Definitely a great choice!

Comfortable hotel in convenient location. Hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I can’t say enough good things about Jackie at the front desk. Breakfast was very enjoyable.

My stay at CenterHotel Thingholt was Amazing! The staff were very friendly and courteous and always greeted Me with a ‘Hello’ or ‘How may I assist you?’ The food was absolutely Delicious and the ambiance of the lobby and restaurant was impeccable. Staff were readily available to meet my requests and within a timely manner also. The room was very clean and modern. I enjoyed its layout and was a perfect size. Overall, I’d highly recommend this property and look forward to staying here again if I ever vacation to Reykjavík again. Cheers!

Great hotel. Clean, good location, staff is very helpful directing us to different locations within Reykjavik, recommending restaurants, places to visit.

This review pertains to the Centerhotel Thingholt’s reservations policies. I was scheduled to stay for 1-night this past weekend. The night before my stay, Icelandair cancelled my flight at the last minute due to the nor’easter in NY, so I was unable to travel to Iceland at all. I immediately called the hotel to let them know I would not make it and to ask them to refund the 1-night I had prepaid. The front desk told me they couldn’t help me and to call back on Monday. On Monday, I corresponded with a supervisor, who also refused to help me and suggested that I make a claim with my travel insurance. While I understand that the hotel has a 48-hour cancellation policy, I have never before encountered a hotel that insists on penalizing a customer for circumstances entirely outside of his control. In fact, the tour operator and restaurant with whom I also had made arrangements for this trip agreed to refund my money or waive penalties immediately with no hesitation. Centerhotels could learn from them that inspiring loyalty by providing good customer service is a better long term strategy than keeping my $200 for its short term gain.

Aleksandra and entire hotel staff was very pleasant and extremely accommodating. Made our hotel stay AMAZING as it was our first time in Iceland. Room very clean and breakfast was a great option every morning. Very elegant hotel. Would definitely stay again. Location is prime in Reykjavik.

We chose the Thingholt Hotel at a friend's recommendation, and now we are delighted to recommend it to others. The staff was warm and helpful, our room was well-appointed, and the food at the Isaford Restaurant was so delicious that we found ourselves taking most of our meals there instead of exploring nearby alternatives. The location was perfect; we could easily walk throughout the downtown area, to the waterfront, and to the pick-up spot for our day excursions.

Pleasant hotel and centrally located. Room is really small (as is the bathroom)..but overall great hotel.
