The pretty village of Seydisfjordur lies in a deep cleft between high snow-covered mountains and is famous for its 19th century wooden houses. Our spacious room was in one of these old houses, beautifully restored. With its pine floors, period furniture, lovely comfy bed and good views from its twin aspect windows we were very comfortable here. There is plenty... More

Stayed here for the night whilst waiting for the ferry back to mainland Europe. An excellent choice - clean, welcoming, comfortable with a great breakfast and just 200m from the ferry. The town itself is also very picturesque. The hotel also does excellent food. As an aside it had the best quality fastest (and free) Wifi of our trip to... More

I stayed here with my husband and teenage daughter earlier this month for two nights. It was the nicest hotel on our two week trip to Iceland. We stayed in a quadruple room in the "Old Bank" building. My daughter loved this room because her bed was in a "nook." The room was very clean and nicely decorated with amenities... More

The town is charming and picturesque. The newly refurbished room we had was lovely. The meals were excellent and the staff were all service oriented and could not have made our stay any better. This was a highlight of the ring road for us.

This hotel is in a fantastic location and while it may look a little shabby from the outside the interior is superb! Our room was amazing, very we'll furnished, retro 50 s feel...but in a good way, an incredibly comfy bed, tea and coffee, good wifi and lovely views of the fjord. We ate our evening meal in the hotel... More

We toured the ring road in July 2014 with our 2 boys (aged 6 and 9) and asked our travel company to arrange family rooms wherever possible. We were originally due to stay in Egilsstadir, but our travel company could not find a suitable family room and booked us into Hotel Aldan instead. Serendipity in action! It was the best... More

The hotel is made up of several buildings - one for reception, bar and restaurant, and others for accommodation. Our room was in a building some 2 or 3 minutes walk away. Plenty of parking right outside. The building looked a bit shabby on the outside, but inside is well maintained and decorated. Our room had a narrow double bed,... More

We were situated in the annexe building which has been thoughtfully renovated with original artifacts and modern conveniences. Breakfast served in main hotel building was plentiful and served in spacious clean rooms. Cooked our own waffles for breakfast. Friendly staff. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Seydisfjordur was among the highlights of our trip to Iceland - could a town get any cuter and more picturesque! . Aldan was a great choice to stay at - very well located, room was fairly basic but completely adequate, free wifi only gripe was the breakfast - left much to be desired

We had a lovely room in a building down the street from the reception and restaurant. The room was spacious enough for the two of us with the twin beds. The blinds did not particularly black out the light but as long as you don't care or bring some eye shades you should be good to go. The town is... More
