This inn has many different rooms and room types. We were shown three: two inside of the house with 4 -6 beds and a shared bathroom, and one with the door outside on the street, a private bathroom and small kitchen. As the cost difference was 1000 kr we picked the outside room with the private bathroom. The owner was... More

Prices are uncomfortably high for a guesthouse that does not include breakfast into the cost and has neglected basic maintenance of the building. Information that you must read in order to not be on the owner's bad side is found in multiple locations, on multiple sheets of paper taped to the wall. I have no problem staying in basic/budget accommodations,... More

You are an observing guest who actually saw the signs, not all guests do that. But it is true, they need refreshment. However, it is custom here in Iceland to take off the shoes when entering a house, staircase, school etc. but I hope you also saw the sign in the living room, saying that there were free coffee and...

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

Dear guest What a shame that Iceland did not turn out to be as you expected. Regarding your experience in our guesthouse I can only say that we don´t live in the guesthouse but it is a kind of family business so you will met different members of the family here. We don´t offer a 24 front desk, but we... 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.
