Visit Iceland for 7 days and our 2 day stay here was one of the highlights. Nice chilled out atmosphere, brilliant staff who clearly enjoy their jobs and great location for travelling around the north

This is a small family business very close to Akureyri. When we arrived the girl in the reception gave us a tour of guesthouse to explain a few things for example the self service bar and the hot tub. Included with the room is a bathrobe so you can walk straight to the hot tub. The hot tub has an... More

This place is located on a fjord 6 km north of Akureyri. It's charming with many personal touches. it has a book swap, an honor bar, a happy hour, really cute horses-just a fun spot. It has shared bathrooms but our room had access to three bathrooms and we never had to wait. The breakfast buffet was very good and... More

As I did not reserve an accommodation in town, I chose this guesthouse outside Akureyri. This guesthouse has a beautiful sight just away the sea. From my room’s window, I could enjoy scenery of the Akureyri gulf. But room is small without table or chair, just bed. So I used lounge to connect wifi internet for a while. Breakfast was... More

This was such a welcome delight after being in a cold farmhouse the night before that had less accommodations. The rooms were welcoming and cozy. The bathrooms were large and well equipped with extras if one needed them. They provided robes in the room and had a hot tub. The people were friendly and the provided breakfast was terrific. This...

Had a one night stay here as we went through Akureyri as we were going from Myvatn to the western island. Stay was very nice. Had a room with a shared bathroom - despite a large tour group staying there at the same time we did not have any problems getting access. This guest house has a beautiful living room... More

The rooms were charming and comfortable. The shared bathrooms were always open, clean, and well decorated. We had a view of the water. Great breakfast, which was the best of our trip. Extremely friendly staff. We loved our stay here. It's a little outside the city, but we didn't mind. We would stay there again.

i stayed for two nights at Skjaldarvik Guesthouse as a base for driving around the northeast part of Iceland. The guesthouse is a few kilometers outside of Akureyri, but still very convenient getting to town. It is in a very peaceful and beautiful area. The staff at Skjaldarvik is very friendly and will take the time to show you around... More

From outside it seems a bit weird - like an old school or something. But when you enter the lobby, you'll be surprised: everything's refurnished and very tasty and perfect matched decorated! Rooms are very stylish and some of them offer a great view to the Fjord. Even the bathrooms (which are shared ones) are homely and highlighted with lots... More
