I spent one night here. Location is wonderful- though any place in this beautiful small town would be just fine! Apparently this is the only true hotel, so we didn’t have much choice. Check is in their restaurant, which is a 5 minute walk to the Bankinn building, where I stayed. The room was big, with a couple of chairs, tables, etc. The bed was really soft- and not to my liking. The curtains did not block out the white night light, that is typical of summers in Iceland. This was the only hotel that did not have the usual curtains, so it was really difficult to have a good night’s sleep. Another con was the heater in the room. I couldn’t read the numbers and had to guess the setting. Part of the night was too cold, part was too hot. It was all guesswork. The place has potential and could be made a lot more comfortable for guests, but looks like they don’t have much competition, which would explain why things haven’t been updated in their guest rooms.…
Quad room does sleep 4 unless 2 of your 4 are under 10. I like the idea of the repurposed building and the town is very walkable, but the hotel was just Ok. Second bed is IN the wall. Only chair in room is uncomfortable ladder back chair. Advertise TV, no TV! And associated restaurant was overpriced. 4 breakfasts with bread, cheese, salami and apple slices 😳😳😳😳 was $80. Like town but overall Not Impressed
Very unique hotel located right in the heart of Seydisfjordur. A popular hotel located in a touristy destination makes for a great match. Check-in was a breeze with helpful staff and check-out was even easier...just leave the keys in the room. Plenty of free parking in the lot. The room itself was small, but had enough space to be comfortable and rested. The bathroom was nice with a great shower. Room was located in an "old" renovated building. Nice path leads from the main lobby to the building with the rooms. Would definitely stay here again in the future. Located right next to a restaurant/bar for lunch and dinner. Lots of nice walks and hikes available within just a few blocks of the hotel, so you can leave your car parked and enjoy the area.
I stayed for 1 night and it was nice. I was alone in this big house. Woke up middle of the night that some running upstairs and i didnt see any car 7 am next morning hahahahaha. Very old house maybe some ghosts.
The triple room at the Bankinn is a gem with wooden floor and antique furniture. It is large and the third bed is carved into the wall so our daughter enjoyed her privacy. Very cosy bed. The restaurant is also great: we had a delicious lunch the day after. Highly recommended!
