Central Guesthouse Reykjavik


Central Guesthouse Reykjavík is a unique place to stay in the heart of the city that is located an easy 5-10 minute to walk to all of the main attractions, restaurants and bars in Reykjavík. Considering the prices of hotels and other places to stay in Iceland, this was a perfect fit within a reasonable price range. The building is comprised of three floors – the basement has a kitchen with two refrigerators, tables and a common area with games, and the first and second floors each have a bathroom and 5-6 rooms. It’s a cozy, family like atmosphere that feels like a townhouse! We’d recommend staying here if you’re on a budget conscious trip

Central Guesthouse Reykjavik Tips

Easy, Self Check-In Process

They will email you a one time code to type into the keypad when you arrive. If you have any issues, there is a call button, but the pin we were given worked just fine. There are keys inside waiting for you when you enter the foyer.

Free Overnight Parking

Parking is free between 6pm-9am

Shared Bathrooms

Central Guesthouse Reykjavik has shared bathrooms – one for each floor. There is a shower in each and they are kept very clean, but should be noted that every room uses these shared bathrooms and there can be a short line at times.

Parking: Street Parking

There is street parking available, and it’s very cheap to just pay and refill at a pay station across the street. Parking is free from 6pm until 9am in the morning. You have to pay for parking from 9am until 6pm Monday-Saturday and parking is free on Sundays. We paid all of $3 when we got in before 6pm until about 10:30am the day we were there.
