Hotel Kea by Keahotels
Ranked #2 of 8 Hotels in Akureyri
Reviewed September 21, 2013

We spent three nights with our tour group here. Rooms were very small and the hotel in general was dated. The location was very central and the staff was friendly. It was really convenient to be at that location and I think because it is a small town that this was probably one of the better hotels in the vicinity.

It was raining on the day we were in Akureyri. This is a big city in north Iceland and this hotel is the second best hpotel we have stayed while in Iceland. The room is comfortable. The restaurant and the lobby area are cosy. The food in the restaurant was good and service was friendly. It is close to the shopping high street. Some of the shops for tourist open early and close at 10 p.m. one can do some late shopping that is rarely possible elsewhere in Iceland.

This hotel had great staff, rooms were clean, roomy, and beds were comfortable. Book a room on the 5th floor (no carpeting), breakfast was good. Location is excellent to shops and good cafes, Rub 23 across the street.
Parking is okay, not great.
Nice lounge area and library for cocktails and watching sports on TV.
Highly Recommend........

Room Tip: Ask for 5th Floor

We were upgraded to a delux room. Spacious, simple and clean, and right in the town centre.
The restaurant was excellent. We had the salmon and chicken in coriander pesto, it was wonderul.
Can't fault this hotel. Guests respectfully have differing expectations, but a hotel simply is a bed for the night, and as long as its comfortable....why complain! The great out doors is yours for the offering! A hotel will never reflect your home.

Hotel Kea is in the perfect location inside of Akureyri (which is an absolutely lovely town on the edge of a fjord). Great service, nice, clean rooms with a great view of the fjord, right in the city center and basically at the base of the steps to the cathedral. Excellent breakfast. Nice bathrooms. A bit on the high priced side, and free parking would be nice. But this was definitely one of the nicest hotels we stayed at in Iceland--I certainly think Hotel Kea has a reputation for being a very nice hotel in the area. Not noisy at all. Just a very comfortable, conveniently located hotel with excellent service and a really good breakfast!

Large modern hotel.
Stayed two nights as part of an Icelandic Island tour. Small reception area. The bedrooms are varied in size, we had a nice spacious room. Well decorated. The beds were comfortable. Nice size bathroom with walk in shower. Tea making facilities & fridge in bedroom but no safe, free wifi in bedroom and all public areas. First impression is that the bedroom layouts are confusing and the route to them somewhat of a mystery tour!. Expect to get lost!!. Breakfast is continental style but sufficient. The evening meals were good (although it was a fixed menu for the tour group). The hotel is conveniently situated in the centre of town. A very enjoyable and pleasant stay.
