My girlfriend and I stayed here for nine days in August. The hotel sits just next to a big, beautiful lake and your room gives you an awesome view of the surroundings. The spacious rooms have plenty of amenities (in our case including a bath tub, smart TV, mini fridge, etc). There's also a hot tub!!! But with all that said, the best part of Hotel Kriunes is it's exceptional, welcoming staff. They went above and beyond for us more than once. On our first day in Iceland, I left my phone in the cab, and the lady at the front desk tracked down the guy on facebook, called him, and got him to come right back. In another instance, we had bought some food from a supermarket in Reykjavik, and the staff had no problem letting us use their oven in the kitchen. They even baked my girlfriend the pizza she bought! Never once did they make us feel like we were imposing. They were so friendly. One of the people who works there, I wish I remembered his name, also had a great sense of humor and would sit and chat with us for awhile after we ordered cocktails. If you don't mind staying just a tiny bit outside Reykjavik, Hotel Kriunes is the way to go. I've never had a better experience with a hotel than I did with these guys. Thank you Kriunes from my girlfriend and I!

One of the most charming places I have ever been. And one of the most beautiful sunsets and sunrises I have seen. Huge room with speechless views, cozy living areas and delicious food. Much more than I could imagine.

It was a nice stay here. Everyone of the team is taking care to ensure best service. The dinner I enjoyed very much. I spend the evening in a hot pott requested by short notice and could enjoy with my friends. The room was clean and comfortable.

We stayed for one night at this place, my wife and I, in the middle of the week. We booked a package deal for two including 1 room with breakfast, and also two-course dinner for 2. The minute we walked through the door we felt embraced by the atmosphere and warm welcome from the staff. The room was nice and clean and very smart with a view over the Lake Elliðavatn. The food was good and breakfast buffet had everything you could wish for.If there was anything not good enough, it was the morning cup of coffee. It was more like brown water than coffee. Thanks for making our stay a romantic one. Eiður V
