We actually stayed in Snaefell Hotel which has the reception in the building of hotel Aldan (where is also breakfast room and which is visible also in the eruption scene of "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" movie), but is located slightly away on the shoreline, in the old post office of the village. The Snaefell is really characteristic and,... More

Seyðisfjörður is a beautiful town with lots of Nordic old wooden buildings. The boss of Hotel Aldan owned 3 of these houses, one is for reception and dinning, one is Hotel Aldan, and the other is Hotel Snaefell. I and my wife arrived in this Hotel on 16 Mar 2014. We are the only guest during our two nights stay... More

There is only one road in and out of Seydisfjordur over a high pass with spectacular views. Be prepared as outside of the summer months weather can close this road - its part of the attraction. The husband and wife owners of Hotel Aldan work hard to make this a memorable destination. We were there at the end of the... More

Last minute change, did not know what to expect, we arrived late on the day, 30th Dec 2013 to find the hotel itself in darkness, but message on the door gave a contact number, the owner arrived within minutes, given the very deep snow and icy conditions, we were the only guests so were booked into a room in the...

We arrived after travelling over a very cold windy mountain pass to get to Seyðifjordur. The hotel was very welcoming and most importantly warm. We were the only ones staying in the hotel and it felt haunted. However the furnishings were very nice and the breakfast in the morning was again well presented and tasty. A couple of options for...

If there was a description between Average and Very Good we would choose it! We arrived at a very closed and dark Hotel Aldan to find, rather disconcertingly, a note on the door saying that we were to contact the owners by going to a Bistro/Cafe just down the road. After a long day we hadn't planned on a mission... More

Hotel Aldan was, by far, the best hotel we stayed during our 10 days trip along the Ring Road. The warmest welcome , a beautiful decorated room, great breakfast , delicious food in the hotel restaurant and really kind staff... More

First, Seydisfjordur is a delightful town, and the drive from Egilsstadir is stunning. Hotel Aldan is charming. The rooms are located separately from the main building where the restaurant is. Our room was quite nice, and the bathroom amenities were among the best in our experience in Iceland -- i.e., a shower in the tub, with shampoo and soap provided.... More

Charming room! Large, clean bathroom. Beautiful antiques and comfortable bed. I loved the short walk to the restaurant. There was an excellent breakfast buffet and dinner. An added bonus was being able to control the heat in the room. (Head to the Bistro for informal--although pricey--dinner of old staples like pizza, lasagna, chili con carne. The pizza was surprisingly excellent.)

My wife and I spent two nights last month in a double room in the old bank building. As others have noted this building is about a 300 yard walk that is both lovely and easy to the main building where the reception area and restaurant are located. As others have noted there is no elevator in the old bank... More
