We stayed fora night in hotel Aldan. It is within an old building so has a lovely character. Our room was very comfortable but it was longer and narrower than a "modern" hotel room. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and had a wonderful meal. Iceland were playing Portugal, so everyone in the town were happy and enjoying... More

The goat cheese salad is really good with a lot of ingredients which make it a good souvenir. The bruschetta with avocado and a tomato-crumble is fresh and tasty. Both had appropriate dressing ... The service is nice and the ambiance quiet and calm We recommend this restaurant

So this is not exactly the Hyatt. It has "character". Located in an old bank building. You will need to pull your luggace first up the front stairs and then another flight to the first floor and you happen to have the bad luck of being on the second floor....well you can figure it out from there. The room is... More

Seydisfjordur was our favourite town on our trip around Iceland, and Hotel Aldan was an excellent break from the drive. If we'd had more time, we would have liked to stay an extra day or two. We were in the Hotel Snaefel building, and though the outside seems plain, the room was very comfortable, cozy, and clean. Breakfast the next... More

I first have to say that driving into Seydisfjordur is obscenely picturesque. It will literally take your breath away. With the green mountains and waterfalls, your would almost think you were in Hawaii than Iceland. The hotel is in a pretty charming historical building about 1/2 block from the reception building. Our room was large with some antique furniture and... More

We stayed at Hotel Alden in Summer of 2016. Clean, updated, yet has maintained a historic charm for this old town. Even though the check in is a few blocks away from our building, it is simple and you will enjoy the location right around the small lagoon in town. We were there in tourist season but luckily did not... More

I would give 10 stars if I could for this place. The hotel is in 3 houses in a very nice village in one of the fiords. The village is how you imagine a typical village in Iceland. The drive to the village is great, over a nice mountain road with amazing view. So I would say a clear must... More

Our room was in the old bank (the hotel is spread out over 3 buildings, each a short walk from each other) and could not have been more lovely. The beds were comfy, the bathroom was well-appointed and antique furniture added charming details. Excellent WiFi. One of the highlights of the trip.

I stayed here in May of 2015, but I overlooked it when I was doing reviews at that time. I think it is safe to say that not much has changed since then, so I'll go ahead and review it now. You can't miss the check-in building when you drive into town. If you don't turn right or left at... More

This group has taken some of the old buildings in town and made them into hotels. They've done a nice job of it. I stayed in what was the old bank building. Very clean and well appointed. Great location next to the water. Modern conveniences but still retains some of the old charm.
