A warm welcome, cosy lounge and copious breakfast. The bedroom was bright with good storage. Off-road car parking was also useful. The only minor issue was the washbasin located outside the bathroom. Why?
Basic room. View over the road. Road noise quite noisy. Toilet/shower set up is weird. First room allocated had a very bizarre smell coming up through the shower but we were instantly moved rooms with no fuss when we brought it to their attention. Next room was clean and sufficed for one night passing through.
The layout of our room was slightly wild, with a toilet behind the bed on one side and a shower behind the other side (the latter without a door). Besides that this hotel was ok; a bit less spacious than the Icelandair hotel in Egilsstaðir, and the non-inclusive breakfast was a slight downgrade from there as well. But the room was clean and the bed was comfortable so you can't complain too much.
Old hotel on top of a bar/restaurant. Very responsive staff and free parking if lot is not full. Shower is the size of a phone booth and water goes everywhere. Some of the pillows do not have pillow cases so you are basically sharing a pillow with whomever was there the night before. Still, seemed clean. Curtains only do a so so job blacking out the 24 hour sun.
Modern hotel. Stylish and interesting design of room- bathroom is particularly “interesting”- if you are with travelling friends it might be awkward… Great location to enjoy city and surrounding area. Plenty of free parking right around the hotel. Right opposite the local pool.
Room was ok - we were given a senior room and taking a shower meant most of the floor in the bathroom got very wet (which means poor design). The breakfast was ok - not great but ok. Room was pleasant - about standard size for a hotel at this price point. Breakfast room food was ok. Nothing special. Pleasant backyard patio and cute indoor little play area for children (had not see this kind of thing in other hotels - pease see picture below
A very pleasant building in an amazing setting with views of the mountains and fjord and harbour from the room. The staff were pleasant but maybe not quite as warm and friendly as at the other six or so Iceland hotels we tried on our trip. The only real negative point was that the food was not so good. My salmon was overcooked and in a cauliflower base whose taste was, well, not to my liking. But not a bad hotel overall.
All in all a very decent hotel. It's clean, friendly and only a five-minute-walk to the center of Akureyri. I liked the lounge area with its Nordic flair. The co-guests are predominantly outdoor athletes (hikers, skiers etc.), which means that you have an upper-class clientele. The positive surprize was when I was granted a free upgrade to a room on the fifth floor with a view of the town and Eyjafjörður. As to the room, I appreciated the spacious bed and size of the room. It was equally pleasant to have a capsule coffee machine with complimentary capsules. Behind the hotel there is plenty of parking. The one issue I did have with this hotel was the breakfast area and concept. First of all, at check-in you have to indicate a half-hour time slot for when you would like to have your breakfast. While half-an-hour might be sufficient to eat your breakfast, it's still very restrictive. The breakfast area is extremely small (which explains that concept), but it's not very well kept up. The floor is dirty with bread crumbs, you have to grab your own utensils and the female staff are more concerned with gossiping than with doing any actual work. Furthermore, the only warm meal you can have is bacon and scrambled eggs. The bacon is burnt, the eggs are overcooked. On top of that, the hotel is becoming a little outdated. The room key is still an actual key and there is only one elevator which is slow and a little old. Furthermore, the room toilet has the shower stall located behind the bed, while the sink and toilet are located on the opposite side, behind the bed. You can close the toilet area with a tremendously large glass sliding door that doesn't seal the area very well. This leads to a bit of a sewage smell (if you know what I mean) that is difficult to contain. I would definitely stay at Icelandair Hotel Akureyri again, but I do hope they can improve on the breakfast situation.…
One more night! Can’t wait to leave this hotel. Tight space for everything, even the toilet. Facing the sun in end of April, we walk into a greenhouse to our room. Internet/wifi extremely weak, constantly loosing connection. When I asked front desk, I was ask to come to the lobby. Shower, despite my best effort, could not control to flood entire bathroom floor. No iron available. Noisy with children running up and down to hallway. No information package of the hotel in the room. Hallway carpet worn out, Baseboards falling around
Very poor window insulation. I had a room overlooking 2 intersecting streets. The noise from passing vehicles is a permanent disturbance. Never back again here as for the rate you could expect much more comfort
