Hotel Aldan is unique as its spread across a number of buildings around the town. The town is small though! We stayed in the Old Bank and loved it - one of the nicest places we stayed in Iceland. The room had been done up recently - it was really nicely appointed and felt really homely. The bathroom was modern... More

This quaint little hotel has majestic views of mountains and the fjord. We stayed in the old bank (hotel operates across several properties), which was a restored 2 level old bank house. It had all the modern conveniences. One tip, remember to check the common lounge area on each floor, where you find a cupboard with kettles and lots of... More

We stayed two nights and do not have a single complaint! Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable, quiet and was thoughtfully decorated with antiques. The breakfast had many options and was larger than what we expected, and the location where you have breakfast and check-in is also thoughtfully decorated and is quite charming. The staff was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately... More

The rooms are separated from the lobby and restaurant by a few hundred yards in a centuries old bank building. The room was large and clean... But had no in-room coffee no tissues, no face cloths. The breakfast was minimal continental. The staff was friendly and helpful. The access road to the fiord was a thrill... Below freezing, gale force... More

Absolutely beautiful hotel in a picturesque town. Lovely staff, pretty rooms and a recently done-up bar/restaurant area. Great food both for breakfast and dinner, and excellent coffee too! Definitely a must-stay. Campers laundry nearby you can use if you need to, 350 ISK per wash.

Very scenic spot the hotel isspread around the town. We were in the Snaefell location which was still very close to the main hotel with its restaurant. Very good service from the friendly staff. Rooms were a good size and on the ground floor. Pretty views of the harbour and lake. Good food in the restaurant and although there is... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the Hotel Aldan. On the exterior the building looks older and weathered. On the interior rooms are quaint and cozy. Everything in this hotel was super clean & well cared for. The beds/linens incredibly comfortable and we got a great nights sleep. We stayed in a triple room, #209 and it was perfect. Plenty of...

Our room in the "old bank" was very spacious and clean with nice wooden floors and wonderful wooden antique looking furniture. We had to stay two nights longer than planned because the mountain pass was closed due to snowstorms. The personnel was very helpful and made our unexpectedly long stay very enjoyable. Breakfast was served at the bistro where we... More

When we arrived in Seydisfjordur, we found that the entrance building of Hotel Aldan was being renovated and so breakfast was going to be served in the local bistro. The entrance building looks beautiful so I am sure breakfast there is great. Our room was in the old bank and it was absolutely beautiful, one of the most beautiful rooms... More

My husband and I stayed here on a trip around Iceland. Originally we only planned to only stay one night, but the morning we were to leave there was so much snow and ice, the road out was closed. The hotel owner came down with his ATV and helped us get keys back to stay another night. He was funny... More
