The place is clean, rooms are good with nice view to the mountains, there's is a kitchen for personal use and public dining room. Wifi has no reception what so ever in our rooms. Breakfast was not served but placed in a basket in the refrigerator, was not so good..

Well in its favour is that it is literally just a few yards from the town centre's main street and the rooms are large. It also has a very good kitchen. The problems that it has are: you can't park outside the hotel until later in the day due to on-street parking restrictions; the double bed was the smallest one...

Pros: Lovely guesthouse with a homey feel. Super close to town center, 5 min walk at most. Shops and restaurants also in walking distance. Loved the overall feel of the home, very clean, nice decor, well equipped kitchen. I had the upstairs bedroom in the corner so had 2 nice bright windows. An older home with neat architectural details and...

Although centrally located, Gula Villan Guesthouse is quite overpriced for its value. The beds are ok and the rooms are nice, but the bathrooms are shared and for the high price we paid, breakfast definitely should have been included (since its apparently a B&B). Also, there wasn't much space to relax. I'd say that we should've paid about half of...

Grate location few steps from city center. The kitchen is very well equipped with free coffee. Our room was spacious in the ground floor. Close to the public thermal pool. Easy to get from the main road.

Appeared to be a nice place, request not to be in the lower level. The stairs are quite treacherous going up to the kitchen and common area. The rooms were clean but the sheets were so thin and full of holes. We had to wait for someone to come and meet us and this was in the afternoon. Nobody is...

This is the only guest house we stayed in on our two week tour around Iceland, and when we turned up here we were a bit unsure about it. We subsequently found out that there was a three day annual festival going on that weekend in Akureyi to celebrate ts foundation, many many years ago. So perhaps as the festival...

This guesthouse is centrally located, not that Akureyri is that big anyway. We were booked into another guesthouse but were moved to this one by the managers. It was no hassle for us but something that you should be aware might happen. Each floor has a bathroom and kitchen area. We were woken up early by a very noisy large...

After a long drive of 250 miles (400 kilometers), I reached Akureyri, the second largest city in Iceland (population: 18,000) and felt pretty tired. It was quite a hassel to locate the Gula Villan Guesthouse (address: Thingvallastraeta 14; Icelandic spelling: þingvallastraeta), and when I arrived there, not a soul was around, although I rang the doorbell at least a dozen...

Stayed here last night- was booked by travel company for one night of a 10 day self tour.

Pulling out theiir chairs, scraping on...
