My husband and I stayed at the Iceland Air Hotel in Akureyri as part of an Iceland Air package to see the Northern Lights this past Thanksgiving and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel itself is very well kept, modern and clean. It was extremely similar to the Natura hotel we stayed at in Reykjavik although had a more rustic touch which was appropriate for the area (more wooden fixtures and a warmer feel). The front desk well-staffed for check-in and were always very helpful in answering questions, giving directions and offering suggestions for restaurants. We had a room on the lower level despite a big push to upgrade it was very large and comfortable – twin beds pushed together in the Euro style to make a queen sized bed but extremely cozy beds and nice linens. We had a wheelchair access room so our bathroom was very large and had no curtain which was not awesome since the floor would get soaking wet after a shower, but the space was nice. The hotel is a short walk down a very large hill to the “downtown” area where all the restaurants and bars are, so it was ultra-convenient. The restaurant for breakfast was decent, although for the price per person if not included in your hotel rate would be rather steep. The room was very quiet and we did enjoy peaceful sleep while we were there. The hotel bar was small but they offer nightly drink specials and we enjoyed the staff at the bar. We felt the value and comfort were very well kept at this location, we enjoyed our stay and would totally come back here.
