The staff at this hotel were really helpful and friendly. A northern lights tour company (Saga) picks up from the hotel. The receptionist showed us how to book this on the hotel computer & printed our tickets for us. Rooms very clean, Ours was a triple room and was a tad small, particularly the bathroom, hence 4 rather than 5 stars. This wasn't a big issue though, as we were our so much. Good location near the harbour for whale watching tours. Petrol station round the corner. Nice little town with a reasonable selection of restaurants. We had a lovely meal at the hotel. Breakfast included in price (not so for some others we looked at in the area) - OK with a good choice (cold beans only issue I had). Recommended as a North Iceland base, e.g. for self-drive trips.
Love the location and very easy to find right across the street from that famous sushi place. They will give out parking permit (more like a piece of paper) to park outside but spots are limited. Older hotel but all is clean and we had a good quiet night rest. Love the breakfast, good selections.
Hotel staff provided great service and was very friendly.The location excellent, in center of town in this cozy and small town. The room was comfortable, had everything one needs and was clean. Breakfast was great, healthy and a little something for the sweet tooth...
We stayed at Hotel Kea 2 nights while touring the area. There were 26 of us. We ate breakfast and dinner at the hotel, and the meals were surprisingly delicious (we usually aren't impressed with hotel food for groups). The staff was very helpful and informative. And it is in a perfect location. We would go for nice walks each evening. Would definitely recommend this hotel for your stay in Akureyri!
The hotel layout is slightly ridiculous. Up an elevator, through hallway, down (or was it up?) small set of steps to another elevator down to my room. The room was clean, the windows faced the street, but the town is very quiet. Everything is done just well enough. If the parking lot is occupied, reception will provide a pass to display on your dashboard for street parking at no charge. The location is nice, but the town is so small, with free public transportation, that it didn't really matter.
Service staff was excellent. Room was adequate size. Bathroom was small but adequate. Shower was very small (typical European type shower) with excellent water pressure and heat. Hotel location was good but like I said this was a small town so not much happening. Located next to the church and the main business district. Short taxi ride to and from the local airport. Breakfast was good but not great.
This is an older style hotel but our room was clean and seemed fairly newly renovated. It was a large room with a comfortable bed, however it had very little furniture, so there was nowhere to put anything. There was ample room for a couch or larger coffee table but instead there was just space that you couldn't use. The hallway carpets were quite shabby, which really sets the tone of a hotel. The breakfast was adequate. We were lucky and found a parking spot, but there were not many.
Nice hotel in the center of the small downtown area so you can walk everywhere. Nice breakfast buffet. Important - you cannot get laundry done on the weekends. A real problem for us. Luckily there is a youth hostel a block away with a "laundromat" which consisted of one washer and one drier! Hostel also has a nice selection of beers! We were told by others that their rooms were small but our was fine as was the bathroom. We had a corner room - maybe those are larger.
The hotel is older but rooms are nicely renovated. Great location. You can walk around the city center easily. Bathroom & shower were very small, but very clean. They provided shampoo, lotion, etc. This is a good place to stay due to the great location.
This was a very lovely hotel and was in a great location. They don't have much room for parking a car but we were told that we could park anywhere on the street, for free, until 10 a.m. on Monday. Since we had arrived on Saturday night and would be checking out on Monday morning, we were okay but we would be going sightseeing the next day anyways. The hotel was at the steps leading up to Akureyrarkirkja (a church). There had been a mini bar, in the room, but we didn't even look to see what was in it. I'm sure whatever was in it would have been expensive!! The hotel was close to the main shopping and eating places so we walked around looking for a place to eat. We had the breakfast, at the hotel, both mornings as they had a very good variety of food to choose from.
