This 3-generation family-run guesthouse/hotel would have to be the nicest place to stay in Reykavik. Clean, cosy & characterful, beautifully located overlooking a lake, and with great breakfasts. But it was the feeling of being treated as one of the family while we were there that made all the difference. We stayed a total of 3 nights and twice turned... More

The location is a bit difficult to find, but the view and quietness are quite an asset. The staff is most friendly and very helpful. Food is very good, as far as it is provided (B&B). We felt very much at home and would return, given the opportunity.

Clean room. Excellent staff. Front desk was so helpful with directions and the cook that made breakfast was friendly.This is not a modern Hotel (motel) and is showing its age. Even so it is well maintained and very clean. I would still recommend it to others.

We took advantage of Icelandair's stay program and enjoyed 3 days here. I was attracted to this hotel, because we always enjoy family run inns. We were not disappointed! The place is quirky; the owner fell in love with Mexico and it looks like a hacienda in Iceland! Lol. It was amazingly clean, homey, comfortable and quiet. The breakfasts were... More

Set on the outskirts of Rekjavik. The setting is like a picture post card. framed by mountains and beside a lake we watched ducks, tundra swans, Icelandic horses and rabbits, and kayak out our windows. The breakfast is ample and the family who hosts the inn tries hard to meet your wishes. It is closer to a bed and breakfast... More

Absolutely gorgeous view of mountains, lake and lawn. Was able to watch geese and ducks from the window. The room was also very nice and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The family who own the hotel were very nice and helpful. We requested dinner before our arrival and we received a hot delicious meal. There was more than we... More

This charming hotel, named for the Arctic terns that live on the adjacent lake, offers a wonderful nature experience with extensive bike paths, a lovely lake, and kayaking right outside the front door. As you bike, enjoy the vistas of snowcapped mountains or the sight of equestrians riding the famous Icelandic horses on the horse paths adjacent to the bike... More

Stayed 5 nights in May 2015. Found the Hotel Kriunes using the Sat Nav, an easy drive from the airport. Family of 4 with children aged 4.5 and 6 ready for adventure. This small family hotel is a comfy friendly place to stay. Buffet breakfast had lots of choice and set us up for the day. We also stayed in... More

Basic rooms in a nice location near a lake, if you don't want to drive into Reykjavik center. The breakfast was great with a lot of choice and one of the best Gluten free breads (you have to mention this need before you arrive) which we got during 2 weeks!

This is, I think, the friendliest hotel I have ever stayed in - and I'm 66 and well travelled! The main lady is still young, and also working full time despite being around 7 months pregnant - well supported by her father (who spent some of the week helping to upgrade the fire doors) and young grannie (cooked some excellent...
