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.

We stayed at one of the off properties for Hotel Aldan, just down the street from the main location. And it was absolutely wonderful. Between seven of us, we had 2 rooms. Each room was fitted with 2 singles and a cozy loft space that could fit 2 more, one bathroom, a desk area and free wifi. The place was... More

We loved this historic hotel in a cute town (and a beautiful drive to get there). Many Icelandic hotels are quite Spartan. This one had personality. The check in area and restaurant are in a great historic building. (And the food is terrific.) We stayed in the former bank, just down the street. It was a great historic building and... More

Although badged as Hotel Aldan, there seem to be several different properties which make up the hotel and they all have different characters. We were in Hotel Snaefell, which I think was formerly the post office. It was very spartan and a bit tatty and, if you were generous, would describe it as shabby chic. That is if you like... More
