Modern, minimalistic styled hotel. Does the essentials well enough
Breakfast buffet is good and great views from the restaurant Room kept clean Staff friendly and helpful
Some cracks showing on the walls in the bedroom and the shaving mirror didn't light up show that it needs a little bit of attention on the maintenance front but nothing that impacted my comfort. The pillows were feather and were not very comfortable for me as I prefer a firmer synthetic pillow.
Booked at Arnarhvoll and Got Bumped to Plaza
We weren't notified in advance that Centerhotel had moved us to another hotel. We were exhausted from traveling and would have appreciated nothing more than going to sleep at the hotel we booked. The staff at the Arnarhvoll did order a taxi that took us to the new hotel. The hotel we were bumped to, Centerhotel Plaza, was in a better location in the downtown.
Great hotel tucked right by the harbor
The design of the hotel is great. Its very modern and sleek. The views are fantastic. Whether you're at the Sky Lounge or the comfortable lobby, you can clearly see the beautiful harbor and mountain range. The location of the hotel is also great. Its right by the downtown area and can easily walk to the strip without the barrage of traffic. The hotel is also 5 minutes from many museums and shops by the harbor and beyond.
Because of the central location, space is tight. The room offers minimal storage and the bathroom has a convertible shower that takes advantage space. The design was beautiful but the quarters were close. The breakfast was OK. It was the first meal I had where fish was not an option. The crumbled eggs were dry and actually crunchy. Bacon was either burnt or raw. However, the view from the top of the hotel easily distracted these inconveniences.
A great hotel, staff great, great location
