Everything we need for a short stay. Easy parking, easy checkin (self checkin), walkable to attractions and many good restaurants around. Wifi, tv, kitchen available. Couple or family, you have everything you need. For european hotel (vs american hotel), its excellent! I recommend it.

This guesthouse may once have been run by a family, but it is now run by Akureyri Hotel. It does not come anywhere close to what is shown on the website we went to in September 2017. There is no free parking during the day....More
