Hotel Natur
Ranked #3 of 30 Akureyri B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 16, 2011

After our three night stay, we were surprised that Hotel Natur is considered to be the best hotel in Akureyri (haven't stayed at the others, of course). First, it is at least 10 minutes by car from the town, although it is that much closer to the Lake Myvatn area, if that's on the agenda. It is a very simple but clean accommodation. The breakfast is minimal, particularly if meats aren't your thing. The best aspects are the owners, who are friendly and helpful, and the view of Akureyri across the bay, so ask for a room with a view. The hotel is reasonably priced for Iceland @ $178 per night, since everything in Iceland, except medical care (which we needed after rolling down a mountain!), seems expensive to us Americans.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view, even though the parking lot is part of the view

Very clean and well equipped. Price sensible. Location is convenient on route between Myvatn area and Akureyri. Breakfast was only average.

My wife and I stayed here for just one night, but out of the 6 lodgings we stayed in in Iceland this was by far the most welcoming one, and combined with the amazing scenery we wished we had based ourselves here for several nights.
We were greeted by the college aged son of the family who owns the property and he ushered us personally to our room, and then he helped us get a reservation at a premium Akureyri restaurant. On check out we had a nice conversation with the daughter at the front desk and later we chatted with the owner himself, who was doing a little carpentry to get a new room open for use.
The breakfast was terrific and plentiful. In summer the sunset/sunrise is an experience to remember.
We hope to get back to Akureyri someday and we will hopefully have a chance to stay at Hotel Natur.

During an organized bus tour through Iceland, I have stayed at this hotel for one night.

This was the best hotel we had during our trip. The family running the hotel was very nice and accomodating, the food excellent, the rooms quiet, spacious and clean (they could have done with a cupboard instead of just a shelf, but that's my only complaint) and the beds comfortable. Wifi is available in the room and there's also a computer in the lobby.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great stopping point on our way to Huasavik. Room was comfortable and very clean. The owner was gracious and friendly. Breakfast was included in our rate and was standard toast, cereals, yoghurt, cold cuts, cheeses, bread, juices, coffee and tea. Located in a very peaceful surrounding with nice views.

Location:
My husband and I stayed here for just one night . We checked in after driving from Husavik. Akureyri is about a 5 minute drive away. In fact we could see the town from room window. It was very convenient to stay there during our road trip and easy to find. I absolutely loved the location - right on the bay with mountains every where. Note: we rented a car as we drove around the country and it's the best thing to do.

Room:
The rooms were very simple and pretty. I loved that our veiw outside the window was the bay and mountain. The bed was comfortable and bathroom was spacious. Thank god I brought my own toilettetries (lotions, shampoos, etc.) as Icelandic hotels do not offer much.

Service:
Breakfast was included in our rate and it was adequate. The staff was extremely friendly.

Overall:
We loved it and wished we stayed for more than a night. Totally recommend staying here. We appreciated the care that Stefan and his family invest in their hotel and it shows.
