Hotel Reykjavik Centrum
Travel Blogs from Reykjavík
Up early, down to breakfast soon after, anxious for my "Walk on the Ice Side" glacier tour. At the appointed pickup time, a driver (who was the first person on this island nation
to claim to not speak any English) dialed his mobile phone and handed it to me.
“Your tour has been canceled,” said the disembodied female at …
First, a few answers: (1) because I read two articles about Iceland nearly 10 years ago raving about its nightlife and surreal natural beauty; (2) the volcano had stopped so there were no flight issues; (3) the locals say that Bjork is actually from Mars and only stopped in Iceland on her way to London; and (4) the 24 hours of sunlight in the …
We decided the Iceland trip on a whim. You probably remember back in April this volcano whose name no one can pronounce (Eyjafjallajokull) erupted and caused all kinds of mayhem across Western Europe, stopping air travel for 10 days. Even after air travel resumed, the volcano continued dumping ash into the sky, threatening to stop …
For Christmas 2008, I got James a long weekend trip to Iceland because...well, why not? We left JFK on Thursday night on our nonstop Icelandair flight to Reykjavik. We arrived early Friday morning (6:45 AM - well, well before daylight in February) and hopped a bus into town. We arrived at our hotel, the Reykjavik Hotel Centrum, which as the name …
With just a few hours of sleep, we decided to grab a quick breakfast before Michael picked us up for our Golden Circle Tour. Michael came highly recommended from the trip advisor message boards, so we decided to send him an email a few months prior to departure. He certainly did not disappoint, and his rates were quite competitive (for a private …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Reykjavik Centrum Reykjavík
My wife and I have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Centrum which we booked through Expedia as a hotel/flights combo. It is in a central location, which proved excellent for exploring Reykjavik by foot during the day and also eating out in the evening. Unusually for a city centre hotel, car parking is available adjacent to the hotel at two different pay and display car parks (free from 6pm to 10am).
Great weekend at the Centrum
We have just returned from a long weekend in Reykjavik , staying at the Centrum.Everything about this hotel was equal to, or exceeded expectations.The room was well equipped, including hair drier and ironing board. Breakfast is a help yourself buffet served from 7 until 10 and there's plenty of it. There was a two-for-one offer for dinner in the hotel restaurant which we took advantage of, and could not fault the meal for presentation, menu or taste. The wine also compared favourably for price (by Icelandic standards).
Staff were very helpful and even assisted us with phonecalls to check details of excursions that we hadn't booked through the hotel. Certainly a hotel we'll be using next time
Excellent, especially for the price
I really loved this hotel. Granted, it's not design-y or luxury, but in many ways it can't be beat. Great location. Great value. Very helpful/friendly staff. Very clean and comfortable, if slightly small, rooms. In-room tea/coffee (much appreciated in winter!) and a really tasty complimentary breakfast buffet in a country where food costs a fortune. I stayed here and then went on to the 101 Hotel on a friend's recommendation - wish I'd stayed at the Centrum! Can't say enough good things about this place. If I ever go back to Reyjavik I'm staying here.
Best location, great hotel
Have stayed in several Reykjavik hotels, and this one is my favorite. It's brand new, the architecture is interesting (incorporating old and new Reykjavik), the on-site restaurant is excellent, the included breakfasts are great, and the staff is friendly. Hotel is 2-5 minutes from everything downtown, including the great nightlife. Parking across the street. Rooms modern and spotless. My only complaint: beds are hard.
Just returned from a wonderful stay at the Centrum. This is really a wonderful little hotel, completely new, great location right in the center of Reykjavik. The staff were friendly and helpful and helped us arrange our visit to the Blue Lagoon via e-mail in advance; the breakfast buffet is one of the better ones we've ever had.
My wife and I stayed at this hotel from 10/2/05 to 10/8/05. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Why? First, the hotel is brand new and has a very friendly and helpful staff. Second, the hotel has a free all you can eat breakfast buffet, which is very important in a country where the price of food is astronomical. Finally, the location of the hotel in the center of town can't be beat. The hotel is within walking distance of numerous attractions.
Spent 4 nights at this hotel and would definitely recommend anyone visiting Reykjavik to stay here. Geat rooms, great decor, great bar with lovely wine at reasonable prices (v difficult to find in this city!) with good bar food. Very nice breakfast in nice breakfast area - lunch and supper also offered - the lunch was great, didn't try the supper. The staff were very professional and helpful. Great location too - right in the middle of the city. 9/10 from me.
Stayed at the Centrum from the 17th - 21st of Aug. The hotel still smells of new carpeting. Very new very clean. Room is a little small but do you plan on spending your trip in your hotel room?! The Staff are very friendly and will go out of their way to book your bus reservations for the airport, blue lagoon, wherever.
This Centrum is a new hotel (opened April this year I believe). It is situated in a very central location with very short walks to the main shopping, harbour area and restuarants. Most flybus/tours seem to drop off/pickup from here due to its central location
This was a nice new hotel in the center of town - within walking distance of everything but quiet. It is pretty small - only about 60 rooms, I think. Three buildings tied together. During excavation, they found some Viking relics or building foundation (can't remember which) and so archeologist are preparing that area for viewing next year. There's a window outside where it can be viewed.
