Stopped in at this guesthouse and got the perfect private double room! Very very comfortable beds! Nice bathroom! Strong wifi! Everything we needed. I recommend staying here for anyone in the akureyri area. Ask for the discount booking rate!

We only stayed at the hotel one night on our tour through Iceland's North. The location is quite good and close to restaurants and shops. The rooms are ok sized, clean and rather modern. The hotel staff was very friendly amd helpful when ut came to eatimg out that night. I'd recommend that hotel at any time!

We had originally booked an apartment in the town, but due to the host no-show had to find some other accomodation. Luckily one of the neighbours we had disturbed when searching for the runaway apartment host drove us to Hrafninn. The place is very cosy and unexpectedly posh for a guesthouse. Rooms are spacious and well furnished, with private bathrooms.... More

I had originally booked a two night stay at Hrafninn, for a Friday and Saturday night. My husband and I arrived in the afternoon and the hostess wasn't there, but there was a note on the door with a number to call. It took her about 5 minutes to get there once we called. We had booked a double room... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon. The location is good, but the service was non - existent we had to phone the owner whenever we needed something - even to pay! We had to chase her up twice to pay and twice she messed up our reservation. Shower leaked and we reported this but nothing was done. Parking is also... More

We visited Akureyri mid week late in April for one night and stayed at the Hrafninn. We were only looking for sleeping bag accommodation, having done that for most of our trip up to that point, and our guidebook said they offered it in the off season. Initially when we called they had only one room and the price was... More

Great place to stay. Great location in the center of town. The room was bright and large enough for a double bed and a couch. Private bathroom was small but not tiny. Very clean. The host was nice and helpful. This was one of the nicest places we stayed during our 8 day tour of Iceland and it was by... More

We stayed here for two nights over the New Year period, and found it a great little place to stay. It doesn't offer any meals, but has a little kitchen with a fridge for you to make your own meals etc. The owner was very helpful and friendly on arrival, showing us a print out of places that were open/closed...

I have enjoyed staying in this place over the last year while in town for work, but after the last visit I am done until they get new residents next door. The house where the guesthouse is located also has a large apartment on the upper floors, and the residents REALLY like to party. Last visit there was live guitar... More

Excellent location, comfortable beds and clean, but extremely noisy during weekend nights from the thumping music from the nightclubs and bars nearby and the very noisy people frequenting it (I was wearing ear plugs and slept like a baby). Good value, but bring ear plugs if you intend to sleep friday or saturday night!
