Icelandair Hotel Akureyri

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 17, 2012

We stayed here for two nights as part of an Iceland Air organized trip to see the Northern Lights in February 2012. It was a great base to see that part of Iceland and we were lucky and saw the northern lights and a 'Yule Ladd- Sausage Swiper'! We found the hotel comfortable and the staff helpful and friendly. It is a modern newly refurbished hotel. The rooms are not huge but well designed so eveything is there and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is up the hill from the town centre but it is walkable or you can get a taxi. If you want a trip to see the Northern Lights go to Akureyri - it has a much more homely feel to it than Reykavick.

Beautiful new hotel from Icelandair in Akuryeri. Gorgeous lobby and beautiful, ultra-clean rooms that have been gorgeously style in a Nordic/Scandinavian theme. I went during low season so the rooms were great value. Close to the town (5 min walk downhill) and good happy-hour specials.
Very quiet, allowing you to sleep well. Wifi comes at an extra cost but there is a computer in the lobby that's free to use. Highly recommended

Room Tip: Be prepared for an uphill walk from the town center to this hotel, but it's good exercise!

We booked this hotel directly for the weekend and could not be happier with our choice. Staff was very friendly, especially the girl who checked us out on Monday, April 9th. I am sorry I did not get her name but she really made our day. The entire hotel is new and nicely furnished, simple, modern and clean. We really enjoyed our breakfast, especially the herring was something new and delicious. Our room was on the top floor with a view of the fjord and mountains. This hotel might be a best choice when staying in Akureyri to explore many interesting areas of the Northern Iceland. I only wish we had more time to stay since there is so much to see and do, especially if you are hiring a car.

We stayed at the Icelandair Hotel Akureyri for a long weekend with our four kids. We were given two connecting rooms which worked perfectly and a third room across the hall for the teenagers. The stay was very nice and you feel very welcome the minute you walk into the lobby. The hotel has a very Scandinavian design and the lobby is very cosy. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and made you feel right at home.

Would definitely reccommend this hotel in Akureyri.

Icelandair hotel Akureyri is a really nice, recently done up hotel. A good choice for an Icelandic hotel. The lobby has a good feel to it. You can sit down and have some nice cocktails or high tea. The rooms as very clean and airy. The hotel is located beside the swimming pool, which is a good thing and you only have to walk about 10mn. to the city center.

We stayed for two nights visiting the north of Iceland and looking for the northern lights. The hotel is new, modern, very clean with a free parking. It is located uphill, a 10 minutes walk from the city center. For those don’t like walking up hill, use the church stairs instead. Our room (509) had a great view to the fjord, the church and the pool, especially lovely in the night. The bathroom is split in two areas behind the bed area, one the toilet and sink and the other the shower. The breakfast area was spacious and the breakfast OK. During our stay there it seems that there was a big group at the hotel so one of the days when we went for breakfast (9 a.m.) there almost nothing left and it seemed no replacements were made. The next day the breakfast was better. The reception staff was very friendly and gave us suggestions for northern lights “spots.”

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the fjord.

We stayed here for 2 nights
The Staff were very helpful and or though it's a 3 star I think it should be a 4 star
Our room was overlooking the ski area in the mountains which looked really nice at night
The area is hilly but very nice
There are a lot of nice places to eat and plenty of coffee shops around
