Great location. Convenient to everything. Helpful staff. Our room was as described, however we were on a lower floor close to parking so noise could be a problem for some.

This hotel was wonderful we spent 7 nights there. The place is beautiful, the room was spacious and tastefully decorated. The veiw of the ocean was amazing. The major bus stop for all the tours is right across the street. The staff was awsome for our whole stay. The hot tub/ spa was great. The breakfast was great everyday lots of selections.

The hotel was in a great location and breakfast in the morning was good. The bed was comfortable. However, the room itself and the bathroom especially was small. The bathroom was odd with just a moveable door for the shower, so there was no space to stand or use the sink if someone was in the shower; plus everything gets wet when someone showers. The water even splashes into the bedroom area. Additionally, there was a strong storm that shutdown the airport (so no planes left or came into Iceland) the day we were supposed to arrive and even though I purchased trip insurance, CenterHotel Arnarhvoll would not honor it and we had to pay for a night at our hotel we didn’t use. It’s too bad because overall the hotel was nice, but I probably would not stay here in the future due to this and the shower/bathroom set up.

Thank you for spending your time in Iceland with us at CenterHotel Arnarhvoll, we greatly appreciate that you took the time to leave us some feedback. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay! :) Our policy has a 48 hours cancellation notice that we must uphold. We are terribly sorry the weather caused such inconvenience but if notice to cancel one of your nights came the day before it means it did not fall under the policy time-frame which is most likely why you were asked to pay for that night despite the misfortunes. However we are glad to hear you still enjoyed your stay with us despite all this and sad to hear that you do not have the desire to come back to us.

Nice hotel across from Harpa Concert Hall.

Pros: Comfortable, convenient and pleasant surroundings.
Location: Along the shore line. Saw many people walking or jogging.
Two night stay with Golden Circle tour. Good free breakfast in top floor restaurant with view of the area. Also used the restaurant for dinner both nights. Comfortable, helpful staff, and front desk. Tour bus pickup in front of Concert hall was convenient.
