The hotel is on the outskirts of Reykjavik beside a beautiful lake, very attractive surroundings. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and I would most definitely recommend this hotel any time of the year

We stayed here for 2 nights before heading off to explore south iceland. We were looking for something that was close to the city but far enough out to be in a scenic location and have a chance of seeing the aurora. This place was perfect - the comfortable room had a nice view over the lake to the mountains... More

Perfect place to stay and enjoy the Nothern Lights. The hotel is very near from Reykjavik. The staff are very friendly and you´ll be able to relax in the outside hot tub, even in winter while it is snowing!

I stayed at Hotel Kriunes at the beginning of December & had a wonderful first trip to Iceland. Having looked into going to Reykjavik for several months & checking out lots of hotels/b'n'b's & their reviews I stumbled upon Hotel Kriunes. It stood out & ticked many boxes for what I was looking for & my choice was more than... More

As part of our group tour, we were booked into the Hotel Kriunes for three nights at the beginning of the tour and then our final night before flying home to Canada. I LOVED this location. It was quaint, clean and friendly. The food was wonderful. There were 11 of us staying at the hotel and we had access to... More

Far from downtown Reykjavik-I would not recommend if you don't have a car. The owner and his mother are very friendly, although there was a young girl working the desk when we checked out who was NOT friendly--she acted like she wanted to be anywhere but there. The location is pretty and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy,... More

My husband and I enjoyed hotel kriunes after spending a few days in Reykjavik and had a wonderful stay. We were on our honeymoon and found this a great place to relax. The staff made us feel like family and was warm and welcoming. The hotel is near the city (convenient if you have a car), but located near a... More

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.
