“Great stylish apartments with nice view”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Saeluhus Apartments are an excellent option for accommodation in Akureyri. These are very stylish, minimalist apartments, with clean rooms and a great view of the fjord from the balcony (each room has its own private balcony... some of them with a jacuzzi)! The personnel is very friendly and they gave us good advise on where to eat and what to visit! It might be a bit far away from the city center (15-20 minutes walk or 5 minute drive) but the view is totally worth it! Prices are very reasonable!! I only wish we would've stayed at least 1 more night!!!

Difficult to fault these fabulous houses. We stayed in House 8, which slept 7 (we were a family of 6, with 4 small kids) which had great views of the fjord. There are three proper bedrooms so there is privacy (one of the bedrooms has 2 bunk beds, but it also has another bed in it) although there is only one (albeit spacious) bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped (we ate in one night) and the house is spacious. The washer and dryer were welcome as we were half way through a 2 week trip and it was a good time to do some laundry. Outside there is a hot tub and a BBQ. Everything is well finished and it has an air of quality. The people in reception are friendly and helpful and have good maps of the town. Only gripe might be that the blinds don't block out much light so if that bothers you then bring an eyeshade. You can park right outside your door. Town centre is a 8-10 minute walk (downhill to get there, uphill on the way back...we drove) and there are plenty of supermarkets within 5 minutes drive. If you have kids then don't miss the Akureyri swimming pool - great on a rainy day with lots of slides, hot tubs, water jets etc. Overall this is a great place to stay as a base for exploring the northern part of Iceland.

If in Akureyri, this is the place to stay. Excellent value. Everything about the apartments is perfect. We stayed for two nights but liked it so much that we wanted to change our plans so we can stay here longer. Unfortunately, there was no availability. We booked through Booking.com for two apartments with hot tubs. The hotel contacted me that there was a mistake in the booking and there was only availability for one apartment with hot tub and one without the hot tub. To compensate for the mistake, the hotel offered me one free night for the apartment without the hot tub. Their 3 bedroom houses are even better deals if you are a group of 4 or more. Check out the hotel website.

Room Tip: If you are a group of 4 or more, the three bedroom houses are better deals.

These are very nice apartments located quite close to the city centre. The apartmentes are brand new, very well kept and clean fully furnished. The price is reasonable, the service excellent. Free wi-fi everywhere.

We were searching for somewhere different to stay in Akureyri after one or two disappointing accommodation experiences. This seemed to be ideal and lived up to all expectations. The reception is friendly and efficient; the apartment large and clean; modern equipment in the kitchen included hotplates, microwave and a very welcome dishwasher (this also ensures you actually have clean cooking and eating utensils when you arrive). The beds are comfortable. There are plenty of electric sockets and lots of storage space. The view over the mountains is very relaxing. The apartments are on the edge of town, so quiet, but it is only a short drive into the town. There is a washing machine and drier if you should need one - free to guests. We will certainly book here again when next on our travels in Iceland.

This was a great place to stay. Nicely equipped, spotlessly clean, and I'd really recommend booking one of the apartments with a hot pot on the terrace. You haven't had the truly Icelandic experience if you haven't steamed away in cosy hot water in 5°C air at 1am in broad daylight looking out at a beautiful fjord!

The only drawback is that it's slightly out of the way and up a fairly steep hill, so if you don't like walking much, this might not be the place for you. Other than that, I can wholeheartedly recommend it, and by Icelandic standards it's actually not bad value either.

Room Tip: Go for a hot pot!
