We're not usually big fans of chain hotels, or large ones either, but this Icelandair Hotel was clean, nicely furnished, with an attentive staff, and conveniently located walking distance (up a steep hill!) from the central district of the city. Our fourth floor mountain view room, if a bit small, was comfortable, with a nicely designed bathroom (finally, shelves and... More

We spent two nights here just as Iceland's first winter blizzard hit the area. Considering we had to drive to Reykjavik during this storm, I was impressed with the caring and well informed frying desk staff who helped out with road conditions, photos, and weather info. The room was clean and quite small, the floor was not swept (it's wood)... More

I stayed in a deluxe room in this hotel. it is very modern with big rooms. The deco is oak wood with wide windows. This particular room has a Nescafe Nexpresso coffee machine, which is a brilliant facility to have. It contains wood floor with a modern shower. Breakfast is the same standard as any other hotel of this branch.... More

Very clean, very modern decor, excellent location walking distance to shopping and center of town. Great views out of the back of the hotel. We had one of the best meals of our trip there at the hotel restaurant, a delicious tapas style meal of Icelandic favorites. The breakfast was also delicious the following morning. Check in staff were very... More

I stayed at this hotel as part of an Icelandair package. The hotel is very clean and comfortable and the room had everything I needed. The bathroom was impeccably clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was more than adequate and the restaurant at night served great food...best sweet potato fries I have eaten! The hotel is in walking... More

This hotel is walking distance from the center. The center of Akureyri is very nice to visit. Little restaurants and bars. You have a choice where to go, not like in other Icelandic places. We arrived during happy hour and we had a beer and a cocktail, they were half price. It was crowded but still very cosy. A guy... More

I stayed at this hotel as part of an Icelandair package and experienced a wonderful stay. The hotel is modern, clean and comfortable. It is a short walk or bus ride from the city center. The lobby is warm and inviting and the staff very helpful. The breakfast buffet was wonderful. My only complaint is that the restaurant is not... More

On our recent trip to iceland, we planned an impromptu trip up north with the intention of staying two nights at Akureyri. As this was decided on a whim, we were in need of a comfortable, decently priced hotel with vacancies one night before our actual stay. Luckily for us, we found all that and more in Iceland Air hotel... More

The Sisters selected Icelandair Hotel in Akureyri and were not disappointed, beautiful Scandic design, modern, CLEAN, beautiful views from our #520 room of the ski mountains, homes and camp sites. Wooden Man greets every guest in the lobby and changes with the seasons...cool. Really liked the separation of WC and shower(flat floor with drain). Restaurant on the lower level did... More

Though not an exciting or particularly interesting room, it was a nice enough room and a very good location. I was a little put off by the frosted glass bathroom door - not a problem for a couple, but the room was set up for a couple and two children (a set of bunk beds was on the other side... More

Dear CBG52 Thank you for taking the time to give us a feedback regarding your stay. I was sad to hear that the design of the hotel did not appeal to you. The design is very scandinavian,light and airy. You stayed in one of our family rooms that have been very popular with families since opening. I hope that you... More
