The location within Reykjavík is one of the main reasons that so many people rate and return to Hotel Reykjavík Centrum for a family city break in Iceland. Situated in the old town, it is just a 10-minute drive from the airport (a shuttle bus service is available through the hotel) and within walking distance to some of the key attractions that the capital of Iceland has to offer.
The hotel building itself is somewhat of historical importance whilst a little quirky. The in-house Viking exhibition centre offers an insight into the islands' history; it even is home to a Viking-era longhouse and the hotel is formed around this structure. And for even more history, the hotel displays the oldest human remains known to Iceland. Could be an interesting fact for the kids and with history dating back to 870AD, Hotel Reykjavík Centrum is certainly an interesting welcome to the country and it's past.
Bedrooms, sleeping up to four people, are bright and airy with typical Icelandic simplicity. Studio apartments are ideal for travelling families as they include a very handy kitchenette. And when it comes to meal times, the on-site restaurant serves up a variety of traditional Icelandic dishes with a heavy focus on seafood.
