          Great location close to main shopping/restaurants; views of the harbor; delicious hot breakfast; clean and comfortable; black-out curtains; friendly and helpful staff - even responded to emails before my trip; and again, location!

          Because no carpet in rooms, can hear people moving furniture and walking with heels above us; tiny shower; no air conditioning so room a little stuffy but can open a little window.

          The staff was great booking tours and restaurants. The location is fantastic. Clean rooms and confortable beds

          We asked for a double with bay view with months in advance and got a twin with view for the back

          The staff in the hotel were very helpful and there was 24 hour cover on the reception desk. Nothing seemed too much trouble for them. Breakfast was excellent, there was a wide choice for all tastes and nationalities from the waffle machine to fish to cooked eggs. View from the restaurant was beautiful. It was nice to have the spa facilities after the active trips we went on.

          If anything, the spa could have had some instructions on how to use the sauna/steam room. The rooms could have done with a little more storage space like drawers.

          The off season price is a good value and the breakfast is a good value for being included in the room price.

          We have now stayed there five time and I would say one of the biggest problem is the noise from the adjacent rooms or the rooms above you. The rooms also tend to be a bit on the small side, but we just sleep there so it is not that big of a problem for us however other may not be so accomodating.

          the breakfast was great; with wafers, noodles, rice, potatoes ... and a great view; and I love to be able to cook water in the room

          Great value, great location and excellent value for money. Really near the excitement of town, very easy to get to everywhere by foot. Really liked the buffet breakfast and the fact it was available early (7am) until later (10am) so there was no need to hurry. I would stay at CenterHotel Arnarhvoll again!

          The breakfast was very nice, and the view beautiful. Nice bathroom. Perfect location.

          The rooms are quite small. On departure, breakfast was in the lobby: just a croissant and koffee, a bit disapointing

          The breakfast was brilliant! And it was located close to the sea. Internet was free and very covinient.

          Room is a little bit small but very clean which was fine instead. Only 10 channels available on TV
