When we booked Hotel Kea I was really looking forward to the stay. I ended up slightly disappointed. Centrally located, the hotel photos looked great. I will say that the lobby does not disappoint, but the rooms have a dated feel to them that I can't quite put my finger on, but that is a little off putting. Nonetheless, comfortable...

Dear Jarrod H Thank you for this wonderful review and rating. Hótel Kea is located in the heart of Akureyri town so there are not may parking spaces in front of the hotel but just in a minutes walk there are plenty of free parking.

A totally unique place to enjoy, this city is just amazing and the natural beauty of it is just breathtaking, this hotel compliments everything here to such a detail that I am very much impressed. The weather was not very good while I was here so I spent most of my time inside and the staff where amazing.

We stayed for 2 nights, room was good size, amenities all good. Our room was on 3 rd floor looking out to main rd but because of the hill the hotel is on our room ended up being street level which was tricky when you wanted to strip down (rooms very warm) because the lace curtains could be seen through....

We stayed at this hotel at the end of March. We paid for a superior room which I recommend as this room was still quite basic and fairly small. We had a few problems in the first room and so we were moved on the second day to a slightly better room. The breakfast was very good and there was...

The KEA hotel has the best location in Downtown Akureyri. I recommend the superior rooms as they have a great view over the fjord and harbor. I however do not understand why the balcony is not more private as there is one big balcony for several rooms. Otherwise great staff, bar and vibe in the hotel. One thing they desperately...
