This is the best hotel in Akureyri. A 4 storey typically Icelandic white building. Although not particularly pretty, this building fits in well enough with the local architecture and is functional rather than stunning to look at. Located in the centre of Akureyri.

A notch above the Icelandic standard

Stayed in six hotels in five towns on this trip and this was probably the best. I prefer higher end hotels, and don't love Scandinavian style hotels in general - because too stark, firm beds, no queen/king beds (just two twins pushed together), generally lackluster bathroom amenities. That said, and yes this hotel is all of those things, this was one of the nicest. More spacious, comfortable, and nice lobby that didn't feel like you're standing in one of the small, bare, rooms. Staff was great. This is probably as good as it gets in Iceland.

Nice Hotel

A very pleasant stay at this hotel. Great location. Clean room and lobby, and very friendly helpful staff. Free internet was a great surprise. I will stay there again next time I'm in town.

Topnotch service at town center

We spent two nights but wished we had three. Great town for people-watching, eating out, and shopping, but our favorite activities were out of town--on the water and hiking. Hotel top-notch. Great service and breakfast. Our room was spacious, but on the sunny side of the hotel, which made it rather hot in the mornings. Would definitely go back, though. Great location, too.

Take the ferry from Dalvik Harvbour to Grimsey Island! It's inside the Arctic Circle--great puffins to see from about five feet away. A highlight of our Iceland trip.

Expensive for what it was

The hotel was nice and clean just a little over priced for what it was. We had a nice view from our room with a balcony however it was a shared balcony which was a little weird. The breakfast that was included was good and the location was great. Our only real compliant was that it was most expensive hotel we stayed at in iceland and it wasn't the nicest one.
