        The receptionists were courteous and helpful and spoke excellent English. Their willingness to contact other hotels which were on our itinery, because of the problem with the bridge at Vik was greatly appreciated. The breakfasts were 'en par' with other hotels.The idea of offering coffee and tea throughout the day/night in the 'Sun room' was a great idea.We made the right choice excpet for ... (see below:)

        ... the only problem we encountered was the music and partying sounds, from the street, which penetrated the room and disturbed much needed sleep until 4am on Friday and Saturday nights - two out of the three nights we stayed there. It would have been good to know of this 'polution' before hand with an alternative suggestion for a quieter venue for these two nights offered.

        Very central location, rooms comfortable and nicely furnished. Staff very helpfull. For Iceland and Reykjavik good value.

        We stayed over weekend nights, so, as the hotel's location was central, a benefit, it was also a negative due to street noise late into the night and early morning.

        5.0

        Location

        Hold fashioned furniture, everything seems to have been over used. Far from what can be expected from a 4-star hotel. Breakfast buffet is just fair, again not at the level for a 4-star hotel.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        The hotel was within easy easy walking distance of most of the interesting sights of Reykjavik, and also close to the waterfront and its restaurants, as well as good shopping. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly.

        Availability of staff to make restaurant reservations

        Only one TV channel available...

      • Couple

        Excellent location.

        Hotel a bit shabby, really needs some upgrading. Im a smoker myself, but even I could smell the cigarette smell in the room.

      • Couple
        9.2

        Location of the hotel is really perfect! It's close to everything that you want to be close to (restaurants, bars, all the cool shops, the port etc).

        The size of the room was small. Not really a problem although we did try to upgrade to a larger room but there were none available as it was over the New Year period. Would stay there again, but would want a bigger room.

      • Group of friends

        You messed up on my reservation as I did book it through the airline website, so the airline should have communicated to you that my flight left nyc on th, but wouldn't land until fri, so I didn't need th pm accomodations. in any case, I bear some responsibility for this for not picking this up myself. however, when I checked into the hotel fri, they not only wouldn't give us any $ back, but refused to even upgrade our rooms to compensate us for taking our $ for 2 rooms we didn't use on th pm. I pointed out that they were not close to full capacity, so they did not actually lose any revenue by holding our rooms for th pm, they just got revenue they didn't deserve, as no services were rendered. they wouldn't even give us free bar vouchers.

        See above. I think you should tell them that they should have done something, ie anything to make things better, as a room upgrade when they are at 50% capacity costs them $0, and doing nothing, ie absolutely 0 when I asked them to do anything other than 0 to make us feel better and be ok w their keeping 100% of our revenue for th pm, is not cool. I also think you should refund us part of our $ if you can't get them to, but this would be up to your sense of fairness and professionalism, I guess. really, if you can get them to put $50 back on my credit card, and you do the same so I get $100 back, so I then eat $100+ instead of $200+, I would be more than happy and then post a + rather than - review on the internet about you and them!:)

        Very good location. Nice breakfast room.

        Fitted carpet on room, 80's style, old fashioned.

        Location, friendly staff, good breakfast

        Noise from the pubs during the night. Didn't bother me but this is not the place for people looking for peaceful sleep.

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        Good location, helpful and friendly staff.Clean.The main shopping street in the center of the hotel.

        We did not get to the Internet and on TV only canel one worked .But perhaps reflected on the other hand does not come on holiday to watch telly.

      • Single

        Excellent location but weekend travellers join in the drink because they can forget about sleeping. We did the former.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        Breakfast

        We had a different reservation with them (a few days earlier) and apparently they overbooked and sent us to another Centerhotel, which was very uncomfortable. When we finally did stay at Skjaldbreid, they gave us a twin room, even though the reservation was for a double. The tv didn't have a remote, which meant we only got one channel, and they said there was nothing they could do about that.

      • Couple
        8.8

        We stayed in two different hotels in Reykjavik. This was better because it was more quiet.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        Early check-in option. Staff was extremely helpful in every aspect: local travel arrangements and accomodating other needs.

        Saturday night in Rejkjavik was very noisy.....
