Close to the old city on the hill is located this modern hotel. Room was spacious, Good equipment with a view of the parking place. Breakfast is abundant and for all tastes. Restaurants offer big selections of drinks. I enjoyed being there.

We originally booked Hotel Kea but switched after one night. Icelandair Hotel is a few blocks from the small city center and across the street from a fabulous swimming complex. The hotel, I think run by Hilton, is modern, well staffed by amiable professionals, and very comfortable. We booked a suite on the top floor and could not have been happier. Ample space for storage. Excellent bed. Modern, ample bathrooms. The breakfast was quite good, and we had dinner one night in the restaurant, which was excellent. Parking on site. Large lobby with bar. The only drawback is that you might encounter bus tours. This can make the lobby (and perhaps breakfast) crowded. The swimming complex is a bonus. Outdoors but geothermally heated pools. You can walk in, pay, rent a towel, use a coded locker, and enjoy. Extremely clean and modern. I swam in 34 degree F weather in heated pool. Divine. Lap lanes available. You enter the pool from a small holding pool that is inside and warm.

The rooms are pretty big and nicely laid out. The shower is quite strong and the beds are very comfortable. The lounge is a nice area to relax. The breakfast had a good selection and was one of the better breakfasts I had in Iceland. The hotel is right across the road from the public hot springs pool and a short walk down the hill into town.

The rooms are poorly designed, most notable with a shelf above the bed that makes it impossible to sit up in bed and likely you will hit you head. That said, bed was comfortable, shower good, and lots of storage. A short walk from historical Akureyri. Restaurant was fine but busy. Make reservations for dinner.

The rooms are fresh and clean with nice views of the neighborhood, especially the swimming pool complex across the street. The desk clerks were friendly and helpful. The location is in between the main street of town, the church, and the botanical garden. Easy to visit all of these key sights in town. The lobby was sculpture artwork by a local Siglo artist. My only caveat is that the bathroom is next to the bed and doesn't have a door, but a modern glass wall arrangement. Works fine for a family, couple, but not so good for less familiar people.
