E M P L O Y E E OF THE MONTH CenterHotels rewards employees that have been exceptionally hard working each month. All CenterHotels staff can nominate their colleagues to the management which then selects the winner from the nominations. The employee of the month is rewarded with a return flight ticket within Europe.

The employee of the month is Malgorzata Purwin (Gosia). - She works as a First Maid at CenterHotel Arnarhvoll.

T R AV E L L E R ' S C H O I C E A W A R D We are extremely proud that CenterHotel Thingholt is on the top ten list in Traveller's Choice award in 2014. Since only 1% of all accommodations in Iceland are listed on this exclusive list on Tripadvisor, we are extremely happy and grateful towards our wonderful guests and thrilled to know that they are and have been enjoying their stay with us.

ADD A LITTLE EXTRA TO YOUR STAY We offer a variety of packages that are available on top of the hotel reservation, valid for booking in all our five hotels.   These packages offer many different ways to enhance and give a little extra touch to our guests's hotel stay and make it even more memorable.    Perfect for special occasions such as honeymoons or birthdays and also adding a bit more to your hotel stay.

www.centerhotels.com/add-ons-offers Here are some of the many nomination Gosia received from her co-workers: - It is always possible to count on Gosia to get everything done and have the rooms ready for the early check-ins. - Gosia is a hard worker and everything she does, she does well. She is always ready to help when needed and it does not matter if it concerns a guest or an employee. - She is a good team member and we are lucky to have her as a part of the CenterHotels team.


The annual Reykjavik fashion festival took place during Design March. The festival combines different openings, workshops and events all related to Icelandic design and fashion. We worked closely with Reykjavテュk Fashion festival in promoting Icelandic fashion by hosting the opening party of RFF at SKY Lounge & Bar and an off venue fashion show at テ行afold Bistro - Bar & Spa.


We recently opened the new and trendy restaurant, Isafold Bistro - Bar & Spa located at CenterHotel Thingholt. Chef Ăšlfur Uggason has created a fantastic menu, using fresh local ingredients. Isafold Bistro also offers an impressive selection of cocktails, wines and spirits. The SPA is in close vicinity to the restaurant making the venue the perfect place for our guests to enjoy a combination of quality food and wellness at the same venue. Perfect for groups of friends or after work get-together with co-workers. Please contact isafold@centerhotels.com for more information and pricing.


PUT A FACE TO THE NAME

We had the best time when our hotels filled up with enthusiastic Eve Online players from around the world, coming to participate in the annual Fan fest at Harpa Music Hall. We participated in the fan fest with Eve Online posters in the windows and in our lobbies. All our bars offered Eve Online themed cocktails and drinks. We were a part of the Fan Fest Pub Crawl with live music and happy times at SKY Lounge & Bar and Ísafold Bistro - Bar & Spa.
