We had chosen a suite, so that might affect our judgment. The suite was great- the best accommodationwe have had in the past 10 days in Iceland. Great bathroom, sitting room, comfortable bed. Dinner was good. Then why only 4 stars. The breakfast buffet was ordinary- typical of buffets here in Iceland- excellent croissants, herrings, and skyr. But crowded with...

Loved the design of this hotel - modern and clean. Our rooms had huge bathrooms compared to all the other places we stayed and the best showers we found during our Ring Road trip. Beds super comfy. Breakfast was very nice. Walking distance to downtown. Loved it

We loved that the thermal pool was just across the road from our hotel. The hotel had a nice lobby with a small bar. We liked our room and the weirdly arranged bathroom (toilet on one side of the room behind the bed headboard, shower on the other side of the room) Breakfast was good. We could easily walk downtown,...

Booked and paid for a quiet room. When we arrived, we were given a nice large room overlooking a traffic intersection! You could hear the noise through the double glazing and as it was so hot and there was no air conditioning, the Windows needed to be open. We were then moved to a tiny room overlooking a car park...

The location is next to the city pool; very nice if you have kids. There is only one elevator. The restaurant Aurora is very good. There are happy hour specials every afternoon in the lobby bar. That being said, the Hotel is very overpriced (most expensive one I booked for my 21 day vacation in Iceland) and breakfast is extra...

Most comfortable bed I found in country. Bar in lobby, that actually stays open. Only complaint is the traditional, shower room with a toilet, but again nicer than most. One staff on morning shift, was a bit "crabby", otherwise rest were very friendly and nice. No fridge in room, recurring theme for the country.

We can recommend the hotel to anyone that wants to stay in town. Easy walking distance to old town and restaurants and shops. We had an issue with the fact a special event was taking place at the community center/hot swimming pool across the street from our room until 2:00 in the morning one of the nights we stayed there....

Dear traveler, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and thank you for your positive comments. Just for your information: the longer opening hours of the swimming pool were due to the Summer solstice festival in Akureyri which is only once a year – if that is of any comfort:) Again let us tell you how glad...

Situated in the busy town of Akureyri in northern Iceland, it is a larger hotel with a large carpark. The reception, which doubles up as the bar, on the right as you enter, had very helpful and friendly staff and gets very lively on Friday and Saturday nights. The rooms were (too) warm and adequately appointed with spare electrical sockets...

Average hotel below the standards of other Icelandair hotels. The rooms facing the car park (half of the rooms) are extremely noisy due to 1) screaming children on the camping located next to the hotel, 2) people pushing their car engine on the road or car park nearby. It is by no way possible to have the windows open at...
