Icelandair Hotel Akureyri

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Really nice hotel. had everything we needed after long cold day of driving. comfortable bed, good shower, tea and kettle in room, restaurant. Still expensive, but not as bad as the rest of iceland. Very good value overall.

Great location, opposite the outdoor swimming pool. The hotel is up the hill and because it was icy and snowy we had some difficulty getting up and down to the city centre ... it did not stop us though. There is a bus stop one minute outside the hotel which catches free buses around the town (in a loop), great for getting around and extra sight seeing. The hotel staff were the kindest and considerate people. The rooms were spacious and very clean, modern in style - no complaints at all. The breakfast choice was great, fresh and plentiful - would highly recommend the Icelandair.

The hotel is located slightly out of town at the top of quite a steep hill. Whilst it only take about 10 minutes to walk into the centre of Akureyri, you need to allow twice as long to walk back! Our room was a corner on floor 3 which gave us two windows with views over the outdoor swimming pool and the fjord beyond. It was warm, with easily controllable heating, comfy beds and L'Occitane toiletries. We didn't mind, but the glass door between the toilet and bedroom might be uncomfortable for some guests. The option to forgo room cleaning and towel changes in exchange for a discount in the restaurant is a wonderful green option. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast choice was extensive and tasty. Remember to take advantage of happy hour!

Excellent hotel all round. Excellent friendly staff. Great room comfortable bed with loads of pillows.Bathroom had L'Occitane toiletries!!! Everywhere in the hotel was spotlessly clean. Great range of food for breakfast. Discount in restaurant for guests when dining in the evening. Good range of freshly prepared food on the menu. If you chosethe green option not to have your room serviced you received a voucher for 750krona to use in the restaurant. Happy hor in th bar 4-6pm daily. The Gull beer on draught was my favourite.

I recently stayed in the Icelandair as part of a tour, so can't comment on pricing but was extremely happy with my short stay. I read other reviews about the shower (superb!) & toilet facilities, and while I can understand people having issues with privacy while sharing, but as a single traveller it wasn't a problem. the room had 4 power points, should be enough for most gadget freaks. It was clean, pleasant, and the choice of breakfasts is very good. I didn't eat in the Aurora restaurant but it looks very nice. As a final bonus, we even got to see the Northern Lights from the car park. I'd happily stay there again.

We stayed in two rooms during our stay as our flight was delayed by a blizzard so we experienced both the mountain and fjord views. Both are excellent. The hotel is very clean and comfortable in a Scandinavian way and breakfasts are excellent. Dinner was also good but when in Iceland be prepared for the high cost of food and drink. We recommend it.

Spent 5 nights here , friendly staff , excellent food in the restaurant , breakfast very good. I had a room on the 3rd floor , very comfortable , nice and warm & powerful shower plenty of hot water. What I enjoyed the most was the swimming pool which is just over the road a few minutes walk ; it is fantastic 3 pools , 3 hot tubs of increasing heat & a sauna / steam room. A great place to meet the locals , it is probably the focal point of the local community. I had 3 visits I enjoyed it so much. As all the reviews have stated there is a steep walk down into the centre of town but is I think within the capabilities of most people. I would stay here again & would recommend it.

Had a wonderful stay at this hotel, larger than average for Scandinavian room, room on 4th floor over looking the mountains. Great breakfast plenty of choice.hotel is up a steep hill which can be tricky in the snow and ice but there are free regular buses that stop outside. There are a couple of stores near by.

We went on a Superbreak to see the Northern lights and stayed here, Although the room was quite small it was very clean and compact with a fair amount of storage space. Comfy bed and great power shower. Breakfast was very good with a wide choice.

We had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. The accommodation was well looked after and all the amenities were first class. The breakfasts were varied and plentiful. We ate in on a couple of occasions and, although expensive, the meals were excellent. A nice touch took place on our first evening there. Our flight had to be diverted and when we eventually arrived at midnight we had a variety of sandwiches and drinks offered to us and I touched a parcel at 1305 A nice touch took place on our first evening there.
