Comfortable room, good location close to town center

Breakfast was good! They were able to provide an early check in which was wonderful after a red eye from the states.

Close to all parts of Akureyri. Walking distance to all major attractions in the city. Convenient. Lacks parking and drainage of bathroom shower could be improved. Other than that, stay was good.

Loved it. Classic, cool, clean. Great staff, one of the better hotel breakfasts we had in Iceland. Great location too.

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.

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.

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.

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.
