We used this great place as our staging ground for a couple of nights in the East Fjords. Traveling in early October their restaurant wasn't open other than for an exceptional breakfast every morning which was included in the cost of the very comfy room. The restaurant is in a separate building from the rooms which made for a nice... More

Traveling by motorcycle around Iceland, I come to this charming town on the banks of a fjord, where they appear scenes from the movie "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty." It is fantastic, small, colorful, friendly and, with few people. Hotel Aldan is simple, comfortable, cozy and with good heating. The beds, nice and narrow, and it's a good place... More

PROS: ~Free parking. ~Good size room and bathroom. ~Excellent (albeit expensive) restaurant at the hotel. It's pretty much the only place to eat besides a sushi place and a casual bar/tavern. ~Bar soap, conditioner and shampoo offered complimentary. ~Hotel has old world character, a little different from all the other stark hotels we stayed in around Iceland. ~Free wifi. CONS:... More

We stayed in the separate buidlind a few steps from the main building. Room was large with loads of character. Shared kettle and tea things on the main landing. Breafkast was ample and... More

We stayed at a building, apparently an old Bank, a couple blocks from the main building/restaurant. It looked kind of scary (borderline haunted) from the outside because it was in the process of being repainted, but thankfully, it was beautiful inside. In contrast to the more typical Icelandic modern style, this was very rustic and homey, but still every bit... More

We spent one night here exploring the delightful town. The hotel room was in the building that was the old bank. When we arrived they were painting the exterior and by the time we left the next morning, it was mostly done. It is clear there is great pride in this property. We were in room 203 which was furnished... More

We stayed in the old bank building. Room 208. The one with the extra bed in the wall. Lol. The hotel is old and the floors are noisy but the views are tremendous as Seydisfjordur is spectacular. Breakfast was good but it is in the reception and restaurant building, not where the rooms are. Dinner was one of the best... More

Hotel Aldan was one of the best places we stayed in Iceland. Our room (in the Bank building) was great, the staff were very friendly and breakfast and dinner at the hotel were delicious. Seydisfjordur was our favourite place in Iceland, it is charming and in a stunning setting. Be warned that a lot of activities are no longer available... More

Our stay in the Bank building was lovely: the room had been beautifully updated with modern amenities & a very comfortable bed. The staff was friendly & helpful with a special request for us and dinner was a delicious meal of local seafood. The included breakfast was a great way t start our day of touring the beautiful eastern fjords... More
