We had a great time at Hafdals! The room and guesthouse were very new and clean (and big) and has a lovely view of the fjord and mountains. Because it was winter it was mostly evening views ;) But it was fireworks-time and we had great views of the fireworks for the three days we were there. The owner was kind enough to pick us up from the Akureyri airport and take us back there the next morning when we decided to rent a car. Breakfast was lovely and there were so many options. It really was a relaxing place and great spot to explore the nearby areas including Myvatn, coast, etc. We were hoping to do some snowboarding but the resort was closed due to high winds.

I think it's a lot easier to stay here if you have a rental car. We were worried about driving conditions in winter but the unseasonable warmth (just rain, not snow) + all rental cars with super snow tires meant it was really easy to get around. Sadly we didn't see the aurora borealis (maybe next time). Overall wonderful. Stay here! You'll love it! When the sun was out, it was spectacular!

Room tip: All rooms were great with views of the fjord

Spectacular views of the fjord and its mountains, smart modern rooms, and a warm engaging owner - it can’t get better than this. I have stayed in a number of lodgings in Akureyri over more than a decade and this new little hotel has all of them beat by a mile. We stayed here for three glorious nights.

This is a labour of love for Þórarinn the owner and he takes a personal interest in the welfare of his guests.

Beautiful views, small and cozy hotel (no tour busses) with large comfy rooms. Best bed I slept in on vacation! Host was kind and accommodating, nice breakfast. Would highly recommend to anyone! We had a balcony that overlooked the water and view of town. Drive to town was only a few minutes. It was Perfect!

Stayed at Hafdals for a couple nights with my husband for our anniversary. We drove from Reykjavik to Akureyri to experience more of Iceland than just the major city. Hafdals Guesthouse is set on a hill and overlooks both a fjord and the city of Akureyri. The evening views were amazing and we even saw the Northern Lights the last night there. The rooms are tastefully decorated with a Scandinavian feel to them. Staying at Hafdals made our vacation a memorable experience that we will never forget.
