Modern Affordable Convenience

The Centerhotel Arnarhvoll is a modern, mid-sized hotel, nestled on a quiet street in the center of Iceland's capital city, Reykjavik, next to Arnarhvoll Park. The sleek hotel, opened in 2007, features comfortable accommodations and a host of amenities, just steps from the city's major tourist and business districts.

Even a Rooftop Terrace

All 104 guest rooms and suites at this eight-story Reykjavik hotel feature a flat-screen television set, a mini-bar, a coffee/tea maker, and chic, modern Scandinavian-style furnishings. Some rooms even have a view of the Reykjavik waterfront, which is just a few blocks away. The entire property is smoke-free.

Facilities at the Center Hotel Arnarhvoll include a full-service restaurant that's open for lunch and dinner, a rooftop terrace, a fitness club, and a sauna.

This hotel offers self-parking for a small daily fee as well as free wireless Internet access, valet laundry and dry cleaning service, and a free breakfast buffet each morning. Transportation to and from Keflavik International Airport is also available for a modest fee.

Easy Access to Shopping, Transportation, and Sightseeing

The Centralhotel Arnarhvoll is located in the center of Reykjavik, just around the corner for the city's main shopping street and four blocks from the waterfront. It's also just a 30-minute drive from Keflavik International Airport and within walking distance of the city's Central rail station. Several bus stations are located within a few blocks of the hotel.

Walking Distance to Major Attractions

When you stay at the Centerhotel Arnarhvoll, you're just steps away from many of the top tourist attractions in Reykjavik. Laugavegur, the city's prime shopping street, is just around the corner and features striking, 19th-century architecture as well as many of the city's top retailers. Also within a mile of the hotel are the National Museum of Iceland, the Saga Museum and its exhibits about Viking history, the Harpa Conference and Concert Center, and the city marina, where you can depart on a whale-watching excursion or take a sightseeing trip by sea.

The Bottom Line

If you're looking for a modern Scandinavian style hotel at a reasonable price in the center of Reykjavik, the CenterHotel Arnarhvoll is a good choice. Not only is it within walking distance of shopping, dining, and cultural events, but it has a scenic rooftop terrace for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. What a wonderful way to take advantage of the spectacular Icelandic summer skyscape.
