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

Hotel Aldan was the third hotel we stayed in on our tour of Iceland, and even in a country of friendly, welcoming people Sigfrid made us feel like family. We came in the off season (Feb!) and the town was quite quiet, but the food at the nearby Bistro was hearty and delicious and the slap-up breakfast every morning from... More

Our room was excellent against our first impression from the outside. When you have a look at the bad stage of the House from outside you wonder when you enter the room and everything is clean and decorated with a very good taste! sitting corner, great beds, sheets felt clean, the bath was big. For a 165 Euros per night... More

My hubby and I stayed here for just one night early October after disembarking from the 'Norrona' ferry from Denmark to Iceland. It was a beautiful day and we arrived at 9am. Our luggage had been lost enroute to Iceland and it had been delivered early in the morning of our stay via road. The staff were fabulous and we... More

Lovely hotel, with friendly staff. As others have noted, you don't stay in the main reception building, we were put in room 208 in the Old Bank Building. It is only a few mins walk around the lovely lake between buildings. Our room was large and very comfortable and full of original character furniture, which I love (without the "vintage"... More

This was one of the best places we stayed in Iceland (The other being the Rey Apartments in Reykjavik.). The room was very pleasant, with nice big windows, a separate seating area, coffee/tea service, nice linens, and a helpful staff. We stayed on the second floor of the Old Bank building and had a short walk to breakfast. There is... More

We stayed two nights in room 204 which was described in our itinerary as Deluxe. The room was reasonably spacious ( by no means large), the twin beds were very comfortable, there was a wardrobe and table, two stools and a chair ( when I asked for a second chair for the second night, this was provided with no problem)....

Beautifully appointed place in an amazing setting. The rooms are lovely, great beds, lovely bathroom, charming town, nice gift shops. We came after the restaurant had closed for the season, so we can't comment in dinner, but breakfast was great.
