From the moment we arrived we were made to feel truly welcome. Smari was the best host we had on our trip around Iceland. The room was lovely and had a fabulous view of the fjord. The room had everything that we needed, was very clean and tidy. The breakfast was superb. We would highly recommend this lovely guesthouse to anyone.

We’ve just stayed three wonderful nights as guests of Smari! He did so much to look after us, nothing was too much trouble, and he made us feel very welcome and relaxed. The location was fantastic! A few minutes walk to the Botanic Gardens, 5 minutes to the Old Town and 10 minutes walk into Akureyri centre and the harbour. The breakfasts were amazing! So much to choose from - tea, coffee, juice and water, yoghurt/Skyr, lots of choice of fruits and pastries (try the ‘happily married’ cake!), bread bought by Smari fresh from the bakery each morning. We barely needed to eat during the day. Smari encouraged us to make a sandwich to take with us on our day trip out too! So kind. And when we got back we had a pot of tea, cheese and biscuits and cake waiting for us. And he drove us to the airport fir our flight back to Reykjavik. Smari worked really hard to look after us, and we are very grateful. Thank you so much for allowing us to spend time in your lovely home. We would love to come back in the summertime!! Best wishes, Shirley and Andy Lawton

We stayed in Guesthouse As in August 2017. It was booked via travel agency in Akureyri.  It is situated in a quiet residential area yet only about 15 minutes away from city centre by walk.  It is operated by a pair of senior couples - Mr and Mrs Smari.  Both are very friendly and hospitable. They are always smiling like their name.   Mrs Smarie is very thoughtful.  She prepared the great breakfast for us and often gave us extra plastic bag for packing our lunch.  There were always a few different varieties in the breakfast. We stayed in Guesthouse As for three days only yet did feel like staying home for the cosy bedroom and warm hospitality. The scenery from our balcony is peaceful and beautiful.     A heartfelt gratitude to both Mr and Mrs Smarie for making our stay so wonderful.  We enjoyed the serenity there and felt Akureyri more peaceful than in Reykjavik.

From when we were greeted at the door until we left, we felt a true welcome attitude. The host and hostess were attentive and charming, the breakfast was delicious and the home very inviting. Our room faced the fjord with balcony and was perfect to end the day of sightseeing sitting and looking at the view. Great place!

We really enjoyed our stay in this cozy B&B, which is run in the home of an elderly Icelandic couple (the house has a Nordic 1950’s vibe.) Our room with a little balcony overlooked the beautiful majestic fjord. The bathroom with a shower, sink and toilet was shared, but we only shared it with a couple and a family. The breakfast spread was wonderful, including bread from the baker, Skyr yoghurt, cheese, salami, ham, jams, cucumbers and tomatoes, coffee, tea and pastries. Akureyri is a small city even if it’s the second largest one in Iceland. It was a pleasant five minute stroll from the hotel to the city center with restaurants, bars and shops. On the walk there, you’re on a street with art galleries, an art museum and book shop. The hosts were very friendly and they’ve travelled a lot. We have nothing but good things to say about this place. But note that this is NOT the right hotel if you’re traveling in a large group and looking to party (we weren’t so it didn’t matter.)
