Hotel Kriunes first attracted our attention as a family-run establishment away from the bustle of Reykjavik. Upon arrival, Kriunes more than lived up to expectations with the tranquil of lakeside living as well as refurbished, homely facilities. All in all we could not compliment Hotel Kriunes enough for the warm hospitality and amazing service - we managed to catch a brief glimpse of the Northern Lights on our last night of stay thanks to the kindly staff giving us a heads-up!!

We have just returned from our trip to Rejkjavik, what an amazing, quiet and clean place. Honestly, we have never stayed in hotel this quiet. Our room was a superior room, overlooking the lake, so it was just beautiful and peaceful. We had dinner in the restaurant two evenings in the row. Lamb, baked trout- all cooked to perfection, I would never expect to have such a great meal in the hotel, definitely worth a try. Breakfast was a buffet style, with cold meats, cheese, freshly baked bread (so good😋) scrambled eggs, bacon, porridge and unlimited hot beverages throughout a day. Staff was ever so lovely and nothing was too much of a hassle. Sauna was out of order during our stay, but hot tub was more then enough ( we've booked it twice during our stay, for private use only) Transfer, to and from the airport has been organised with the hotel, and it was much cheaper then a taxi (20.000isk both ways), transport to Reykjavik was 3000isk, great value for money. Unfortunately, we were unlucky and didn't see Northern Lights ad the sky was overcast, but let me tell you that Iceland has soooooo much more to offer then Auroras. When planning next trip to Iceland, we know for sure where we will be staying! Thank you to all the staff at hotel Kriunes for your great hospitality, keep doing what you're doing ❤

This is a fantastic little Hotel looking over a lake. The rooms are very clean and big with a view over the lake. They have a hot tub, but this area could do with a tidy up and is not as private as you think. The breakfast and evening meals are extremely good but the thing that makes this hotel is the staff, nothing is too much trouble and they are always looking at ways to make your stay more comfortable

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights here whilst on our honeymoon in Iceland, the view from our room was incredible and was a delight to wake up to, seeing the sun rise from behind the snow covered mountains, the staff were friendly and very helpful when it came to getting info on excursions and tours, would definitely recommend this hotel it's out the way but still only 20 mins from Reykjavik

My husband and I just returned from a trip celebrating a milestone birthday, and this hotel was the best choice we made on our trip. After a long red eye flight and numerous issues, we were exhausted when we arrived at Kriunes at around 8AM, a bit too eager for early check-in. After a bit of back and forth with the friendly young lady at the front desk, we were offered free breakfast (wow!) as we waited for our room to become available. Our room and general experience - Room 25 was absolutely beautiful. I loved the walk-in shower, the modern design and neutral colors, and all the super functional storage cabinets both in the room and in the bathroom. With a sliding glass door that could be locked from any position, we were happy to escape the geothermal heat by keeping our door cracked while sleeping. Additionally, an old but functional fan was already in our room, which was immensely helpful for circulating air. The room overlooks the lake, and offered an amazing view of the mountains and a walking area. Unfortunately the Northern Lights were not in view during our stay, but if they had been, the view from our room would have been perfect. The room was huge, especially when compared to other hotel rooms we researched near Reykjavik. The double bed was actually two twin beds pushed together. This wasn't ideal, but seems standard in Iceland. The TV easily connected to YouTube on our phones, and was very new and great quality except for a remote control with wonky buttons. I'm sure the staff would have replaced it for us if we had thought to say something about it. Everyone we saw and interacted with was helpful, friendly, and gave us a great sense of peace and security in our choice to stay there. Breakfast - Their breakfast is the best deal in the entire area, at only 1800 ISK (off season/November rate) per person. Offered from 8-10AM, it's pretty much the only option available in the area surrounding the hotel until other nearby restaurants open around 10 or 11am. Luckily, the quality of the breakfast far surpasses the low price! We had jet lag and unfortunately were unable to take advantage of the breakfast on most days. With eggs, freshly made grain bread and butter, a type of bacon or ham, cheeses, oatmeal, and all the sauces and sides you can imagine, Overall - Lovely quiet hotel with very helpful staff, beautiful views, a delicious breakfast, an on-site restaurant, ample parking, and reasonable rates. Hope to stay again!
