Nothing too much trouble. We enjoyed a home cooked dinner prepared by the hostess. Gorgeous Icelandic style food that her own family enjoyed too. Cosy lounge area with views over a frozen lake. We were told the Aurora activity had started by the host. Great place to watch. No hesitation to recommend.

My mother and I stayed at the Kriunes Hotel at the beginning of January. As soon as we walked in we were taken care of by the lovely staff. We were given a choice of room and finally settled on a family room with a huge bathroom with bath. Breakfast was very nice, although it seemed quite strange to be... More

We stayed here for 3x nights in january. There are lots of hotels, appartments and airbnb's to choose from in Reykjavik, so why should you choose Hotel Kriunes? First of all this hotel has a topnotch location, next to a beautiful lake. The hotel is around 12km outside the city center. No pollution, quiet surroundings and a family whom will... More

Really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Kriunes. The staff were all very hospitable and the family run atmosphere is lovely. Best bits are the lovely living room where you can sit and wait for the lights, or just relax. We also used the hot tub which was really lovely and warm, but the view sadly not as good as those...

Everyone at Kriunes was very hospitable. We enjoyed our stay there and hope to come back someday. Off a bit from the center of the city, it was quiet and peaceful, not a cookie cutter hotel, but one of a kind. It is very clean and inviting. Lots of books to read and places to sit and enjoy your stay.... More

Our stay at Kriunes was one of the best parts of our trip to Iceland. It embodies all of the best aspects of a family run business, and they truly go out of their way to make you feel like part of the family. Our room was very clean and had a gorgeous view of the lake. They have a... More

My wife and I spent one night here as the last night of a four-day tour. We subsequently returned to this hotel after spending one additional night at the Keflavik Airport B&B. We had intended to pickup a rental car at the airport and then do a bit of driving around western Iceland, but the weather just did not want... More

We were met and greeted by lovely Melissa and Stefan and their little girl Ellie . From the moment we arrived to when we left very early after a three night stay we were treated to all sorts of treats . The whole family made us so welcome that it felt like home from home .

Very nice little hotel on the outskirts of the capital. A very good base to explore the region, Close to reykjavik but away from the light and noise pollution, which also helped us see the northern lights 3 times over the lake. Beautiful scenery around and the staff very friendly and helpful.
