I rarely make such mistakes when I book an accommodation. I thought I had done my homework on this one; I certainly know I cannot depend on the reviews on booking.com (Interestingly, my review was not posted), and need to be more careful. Fortunately my stay was only for one night. Things did not start out well. The outside of... More

the position is fine but the overall impression is one of lets get the tourists money.we werent made unwelcome it was just that the general feeling was of a very ordinary guest house rather than anything special.We were not asked whether we wanted breakfast so we didnt bother,We walked to restaurant Rub 23 which was excellent.

Dear guest I am sorry to hear that you did not have a nice impression of AkurInn. The staff and I have talked it over, and we tried to recall what went wrong. I cannot tell why you were not offered breakfast as that is a part of my normal welcome. We will try to do our best next. Best... More

Stayed here for 1 night in May, 2014. We did not have advance booking. The manager was very accommodating. She put us up in a quiet and comfortable apartment. Walking distance from the town center. Ample parking space.

I stayed at Akurinn for one night in June and would highly recommend the guesthouse to those looking for a quiet, comfortable and clean place to stay. I had a very personal reason for visiting the house - it was built by my great-grandfather and my grandmother and my father grew up there. Thora couldn't have been more accommodating during... More

We had a private bathroom and liked our room a lot. We stayed on a Friday night and it was nice and quiet. The wifi seems to be overloaded and kept disconnecting us. The common areas were clean and had some good info for tourists. Overall, a nice place to stay.

Staying 2 nights in this central guesthouse. Great value with good rooms, comfortable beds and powerful shower in our private room. There are curtains and roll blinds which do not totally black all out. However I just use some eye covers I bought at an airport a few years ago and some proper earplugs to cover any noise issues -these... More

We booked the hotel on the same day just for one night. We had 2 bedroom apartment for 2 families. Thora was very accommodating. Everything was ready for us when we came late at night. Location is great,in the center of the city. House is charming old castle, but very well kept. Highly recommend.

Our family found this guesthouse the best value during our two weeks of traveling through Iceland. We had planned for two nights and changed to three. They have a community room with lots of windows that is a great place to relax, read or look out over Akureyri. The location is excellent for walking the town or to use as... More

We had booked at another guest house and they passed on our booking to the AkurInn. Our room had 3 beds and the one we were not using had a bare stained mattress. Nice. There was a tiny window and no wardrobe of any kind in the room. The price was high for the accommodation we got.

The guests wrote: "We had booked at another guest house and they passed on our booking to the AkurInn." Their reservation was not at Akurinn. They were lucky to get any room in high season without reservation. In summertime we are very busy. And the rooms in the backyard are the last rooms we offer. We show guests the rooms... More
