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...

We spent a week here and felt it was a perfect place to relax after very full days spent touring around West and South Iceland. The hotel is about 15 minutes from Central Reykjavik, so really convenient, yet away from the busy city. Easy to get out on to country roads and the main road which circles Iceland. A Sat-Nav...

We stayed here for 5 nights in April 2015. Extremely lovely and helpful staff. Location = EXCELLENT! Close to the airport and everything else. We were able to do most of the adventures in south Iceland - longest drive = 3 hours. We even got to see the northen lights from our bedroom! A large shopping centre very close. Lots... More

Excellent hotel. We stayed here for our honeymoon for a week and the location and staff were excellent. The hotel itself is around 20 minutes away from central Reykjavik, but is far enough out to be completely quiet at night. There are fantastic views from most rooms over the lake and the rooms themselves were clean and comfortable. The owner... More

We stayed in Kriunes in April 2015 for three nights, and loved every moment of it. Beautiful views of the lake, very friendly staff, and just an overall pleasant atmosphere. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to explore Reykjavik area.

The hotel is located in Kopavagur which is a 10 minute drive from Reykjavik city center. We visited Iceland during a cold and windy March but were thrilled to stay at this hotel. The service is warm and friendly and remember to take the room with a lake side view. It was completely frozen when we visited but it's apparently... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. It was clean, comfortable and cosy. Yes, the location is outside of Reyjavik city centre but there are buses to get there if you didn't hire a car. The bus stop is about 10-15 min walk away where you will have to catch two buses to get into town. For us, it... More
