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

Right in the heart of the lovely, charming town of Seydisfjordur, the Aldan provided a lovely, charming large room with a nice bathroom. Staff was helpful and the restaurant very good. One of the best hotels we stayed at in Iceland.

Someone has done something right. There are recent Icelandic decorating and design magazines in the restaurant area which 'happen' to feature the makeover at the Aldan. They have taken three older kit homes and made them into a lovely boutique hotel. the reception area is a coffee bar and restaurant that makes you want to settle in with a cup... More

We were situated in another building to the reception area. Fortunately had room on first floor but even then there were steps to carry suitcases up. Noisy when people come in late because it is a wooden building. Large room with comfortable beds and good duvets. Rooms were reminiscent of visiting Granny in a bygone era. Wi-Fi but no tea... More

The hotel is split across three buildings - the reception, hotel aldan and Snaefell. We stayed in the main Hotel Aldan which was the old bank. From the outside the building looks rather old and tired. However inside it's very different - a lovely room with antique furniture and the most comfort able beds in Iceland (so far). Breakfast is...

Obviously just finished a complete restoration inside so don't be put off by the plain looking outside shell. Inside it's polished wood with carpet inlays and the rooms are very comfortable. Beware creaky floorboards though especially if you are on the ground floor. Hard shoes above awoke us early. Breakfast is taken in another building where you check in and... More

The hotel is straight ahead when you drive into Seydisfjordur. That building houses reception and the restaurant, and the rooms are in two other nearby buildings. We stayed in the renovated bank building and it was by far the best room we had in Iceland. It was big and airy, with very nice antique furnishings. The doors were heavy and... More

Great hotel with a nice and clean room. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful. I arrived around 9 pm, when there was no restaurant open, and he called his other restaurant (Bistro Skaftfell), wich was closing, to make a pizza for me. At the restaurant, the waiter was again very friendly, and I had a nice pizza! This was... More

After a beautiful drive through the mountain pass, we checked in to the Hotel Aldan in the later evening. The staff was great. Wonderful sense of humor while also helpful. Our room was in the former bank and tastefully laid out. The old wardrobe and desk were beautiful without being pretentious. The hotel is perfectly situated to get groceries, walk... More
