Everything was clean, staff was friendly, overall easy and enjoyable experience. There was a pretty good selection for breakfast and the location was walking distance from downtown which made it easy to get to restaurants/bars. Parking could have been improved, I came in winter and the parking lot was not plowed so it was difficult getting in and out.

We stayed at this hotel for one night in early October 2016. Pros: The hotel was very easy to find and convenient to walk to the charming downtown area. There was plenty of parking available on the street. Since we were only staying one night, we did get the cheapest room, so the view of the hillside right outside of... More

Very cute and cozy hotel, although the room isn't big, but it didn't bother me. Classical style with VERY comfortable bed and comfort. Very friendly staff and good breakfast also. We did enjoy our stay, will definitely choose it next time visiting Akureyri.

The room was good (hot water a bit smelly), the staff was very helpful. There is no elevator so if you have any mobility issues get a lower floor. The included breakfast was a good continental breakfast. The carpet in the stairway is in dire need of replacement but the rest of the facility was nice and clean.
