Situated on Aðalstræti, one of Reykjavík’s oldest streets in one of the city’s liveliest districts, the charming Reykjavík Centrum is perfectly placed for fun, three 18-century buildings house top-rated accommodation and an acclaimed restaurant Fjalakötturinn. Deluxe rooms and suites, as well as four sleek studio apartments, with kitchenettes and living rooms are all beautifully designed, with a calm and clean feel and all mod-cons. There’s a friendly and rather sleek bar and café to enjoy too.

Eat

The hotel’s restaurant is rather special too – as popular with local foodies as it is with guests. The menu is inventive and extensive, with the focus on regionally inspired dishes and fresh seafood. Expect dishes such as cured Arctic Char served with pickled fennel, Icelandic pearl tomatoes and rye-bread ice cream, or smoked lamb carpaccio with blueberries, hazlenuts and thyme; and a good selection of wine. The bar offers simpler but still delicious meals, along with some fabulous cocktails.

Sleep

Rooms here are kitted out in a sophisticated Scandinavian style, all pinewood floor and pastel tones. Junior Suites are the best rooms on the property, as you not only get extra space compared to the ordinary Double Room or Double Deluxe Rooms, but they are spread over two floors, with the upstairs boasting a balcony perfect for a bit of fresh air.

Do

Reykjavík is a wonderful city to start off your Icelandic adventure, and the centrally-located (and aptly named) Centrum gets you right into the heart of the fun, close to cafes and bars. Just down the street is the exciting Skúli Craft Bar, which is sure to knock you sideways with its staggering selection of high percentage ales, while nearby Laugavegur is the Icelandic answer to Oxford Street. There are plenty of museums, galleries and churches offering a cultural antidote too.
