We booked last minute and got (I think) one of the nicest rooms in the house with view over a city square. Despite being in the center of town we did not hear a lot of what was going on outside and did not hear a lot of people coming in or making a lot of noise. Even though the room is small, it is still large enough. Also the bathroom has enough space. Most important, everything was clean, there is a water cooker to make tea and instant coffee (provided by the guesthouse). We will definitely book again when we have to stay over in Akureyri. There is no reception, confirmation code to come in the house (after 19:00 hrs) is provided by e-mail and/or text message.

The This guesthouse is at the center of the city. So, you can easily go eating out, windowshopping, or walking to the fjord and the iconic church. Despite these advantages, the price is still reasonable. Worth it !

Cosy room . Right in town...everything was ready for us key etc .it would have been great to have coffee/tea making facilities but that seems to be a thing in Iceland. Navigation to the site was challenging for our GPS.

I was perfectly happy with this guesthouse, it was perfect after a long day of driving. Very clean, cozy rooms, with all the amenities you could need. Seamless check-in and check-out. Beautiful view out on the town square. Very short walk to the harbor, church, botanical gardens, historic homes, and the best cafe in Akureyri (Blas Kannan).

My journal reads “Damned if I know why I chose this place – could have been because costs were accumulating”. Beyond price, one pleasant quirk is you can sit in the pentagonal alcove and look out on the city ‘square’, actually a circle with a wee park in the centre and watch folks milling about. This city ‘square’ is the meeting place of several streets, so you are conveniently close to everything including the cathedral that you don’t want to miss. Parking is free – courtesy of a nearby bank, but 600 m away, so ill-fitted to large suitcases. The communal bathroom is cozy, but ill-suited to taller folk; the knees of anyone over 6’ are less than 6” from the door. The upside is that it is clean and everything is within reach, though the toilet paper may be directly behind you. Broadly, the Torg is modern, tidy and clean. It doesn’t have the perks of more expensive hotels, but is very conveniently located. Almost everything you wanted to see in Akureryi is close at hand. Travel in Iceland can quickly become expensive, the Torg allows you to reduce the outflow with no significant hardship still be located close to Akureryi sights and shops.
