Though they need one more sign (at the end of the road before turning left and dropping down the hill) to make finding the hotel a breeze, the service was exceptional once we arrived. I had booked this for several days as part of our honeymoon. The hotel staff were extremely accommodating in late bookings for evening meals, early breakfasts... More

Our experience at the Hotel Kriunes was positive. Originally there was a mix up in our Expedia booking but the hotel staff was very helpful and accommodating. They were able to upgrade our hotel room at a very fair price to a comfortable room with a wonderful view. The staff here are superb.

After traveling on the Ring Road we spent the last two days here. As one reviewer said, it is not really a Hotel, maybe something between Hotel and Guesthouse. It seems that they are very popular as conference Hotel. We liked the Hotel very much. It has a very cosy and warm atmosphere. We even got an upgrade to a... More

We picked this as we wanted to be out of the city centre, have some rural views and not be in a tiny room and it met all these things. It's a very relaxed personal hotel and the hosts were friendly and helpful. Not easy to find first time so make sure you have a good map with you. The... More

Great location for a hotel near Reykjavik, large rooms, very tidy - but the décor - very dated and as far removed from Iceland design as imaginable...Mexican musicians guarding doors, bathrooms with a 'touch of Spain' and very cluttered lounge and dining area, no reception, hacienda style outside spaces...weird! Must be a great location in summer but not much to... More

Visited again and been going here for 2 years now as a base to see the Aurora Wonderful location on the outskirts of Reykjavik. Ideal for watching the Northern Lights when visible, especially those you won't see from the centre of the city because of the light pollution. A wonderfully charming family run hotel, lovely people, and a nice base... More

From the blurb on the hotel website, I expected something rather more upmarket from the Kriunes Hotel. It's not really a hotel in the service sense; there is no reception and despite saying they do evening meals, there is no menu and notice is required if you want to eat in the evening. On the one night we ate in,... More

The receipt for your stay says "Kriunes Guest House" at the top, which I think is better way to describe this accommodation. There isn't a reception desk, nor check in process, nor an extensive breakfast nor a restaurant in the conventional sense. For breakfast there are cereals, cold meat, tea & coffee, bread / toast, sometimes fruit, and an offer... More

the bread and jam and hot tub are great. the view is great. there are TWO buses to take to town. both extremely unreliable, and taxi is $40. The hotel owner overcharged us for food (and would not disclose the cost when asked first) we were vulnerable. i am left with a feeling of being subtly manipulated and played by... More

We recommend this unusual hotel. 20 years ago it was a small farmhouse on the edge of a lake surrounded by countryside. It's now in a suburb -- but still on the expansive lakeside with enough land surrounding it to make it seem as though you're still in the country. In the last 20 years the family has added fourteen... More
