Centerhotel Plaza

The Centerhotel Plaza is a great base for exploring Reykjavik. It’s in a central spot, so everything in the city is within walking distance. When you want to head further afield, remember that all our holidays to Iceland come with two excursions included.

The rooms are bright and airy, with flat-screen TVs and minibars as standard. In the morning, cooked and continental options are served in the restaurant, so you’ll be well set-up for a day of exploring. For dinners out, you’re surrounded by restaurants.

If you just fancy a cosy drink, the hotel’s bar has an open fire and candlelit tables, and also has a happy hour every day.

Overview of Reykjavik

Reykjavik is one of Europe’s most chic and cosmopolitan cities. It’s the world’s most northerly capital city and blends a traditional Nordic atmosphere with a modern outlook. It’s a city of great contrasts and traditional iron structures sit right next to 21st-century spas, space-age churches and laid-back cafes.

Reykjavik is a brilliant location in its own right, but it’s also a great base for exploring the rest of the country. You can head out to sea from the harbour near the Centerhotel Plaza, visit the Blue Lagoon or seek out the Northern Lights.

Things to do in Reykjavik

The Centerhotel Plaza is ideally located in downtown Reykjavik and is surrounded by cafes and bars. The harbour is just five minutes’ walk away, which is really convenient if you’re planning a whale-watching trip.

If you stay in the city and explore the streets you’ll come across cosy cafes, restaurants serving intriguing cuisine and popular shopping districts. At night, there’s a chic and bohemian feel in some districts, where small bars transform into hip and happening nightlife venues.

Reykjavik’s charms are unique – a trip here will leave you wanting to return again and again.
