Opened in 2005, this hotel is made up of historical Reykjavik buildings, located in the old city center and next door to Althing (the parliament).
Pros: Location in town.Cons: Ridiculous price for room that had no amenities. Paid five star price for two star motel. Room small, bed uncomfortable. Everything extra.
Excellent hotel in a great location.Pros: The hotel is centrally located in Reykjavik and next door to some excellent restaurants. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area.
Great value and prime locationPros: Excellent location within walking distance to busy city center
Great value for the money
Prompt service from staff & housekeeping
Nice little restaurant in the lobbyCons: For some reason the TV was messed up most of the time (would get frozen on certain channels and would have to get up and turn it off). However, was not in the room much, so this was not a big issue.
Pros: The location was very nice and central. Cons: The hotel staff were rude and not helpful. One night there was so much noise from people talking and partying until 3:00 am. Could not sleep. The buses no linger pick you up at the hotel. It the walk to the bus stop is less than five minutes. It was still inconvenient with all our luggage. We did not know that when booking.
Pros: Close to old parts of town. In fact, hotel is built over museum for first settlement.
Pros: It was clean, desk staff were pleasantCons: The hotel had messed up the reservations. My reservation through Kayak was fine. However, a hotel block that was to be released 45 days before my arrival was still on the books (I was joining a hiking group) and they tried to get me to pay for that supposed reservation. In talking with the agency that had arranged the room block for this particular hiking group, this is not the first time that this hotel has done this. In addition, a friend of mine who had confirmed her reservation at Hotel Centrum before leaving the US, received an e-mail that they were overbooked and she had to go to another hotel---even though Hotel Centrum had double bookings and indeed did have rooms.
Pros: Location was good.Cons: Parking was listed but it was public parking. We had to drive around and parked a few blocks away.
Pros: Outstanding staff. Very clean. Very central. Convenient bar and restaurant. Cons: Slow wifi.
Great Hotel in the middle of the city!Pros: Location! You can not beat the location of the Centrum. Also the front desk staff is awesome. They can book all of your excursions for you and if you would like dinner reservations, they can suggest where and then make the reservations for you. The hotel bar happy hour was excellent if you like beer and craft cocktails. Cons: The room size was a little small and there was no place for a second piece of large luggage. Also, even with the radiator in the off position, the room was extremely hot. We were forced to sleep with the windows open. The amount of noise coming from the street from cars and people at all hours of the night caused us not to get a good nights sleep in the 8 days that we were there. I wish I would have brought ear plugs.
