My room faced the fjord and was pleasant but... the room and bathroom were both small. WiFi was reliable and the breakfast above average for Iceland. Breakfast provided for making your own waffles. For a business class property it would have been nice to have a kettle with coffee-tea making supplies in the room.

Rented 2 rooms for 2 nights, both had nice views and were very clean. No elevator which did not present a problem for us, free wifi with a good signal. Easy convenient parking in front of the hotel. Hotel was within walking distance to downtown and most importantly an ice cream parlor not far down the street. Rooms included a nice quality breakfast buffet. Quiet neighborhood. Professional helpful staff. Our only regret was that we should have stayed in this area at least another day. If I were to return to this area of Iceland I would not hesitate to stay at the Hotel Akureyri.

This hotel is in a good location, not far from the centre but far enough outside to be peaceful. We had to carry our luggage up 2 floors but the room was very comfortable and spacious. The bed was excellent,which is vital for me.
The breakfast was varied and good.Overall we were pleased with this hotel.

Room Tip: remember there is no lift

We enjoyed our stay here. Our room had a bit of an odd shape and it wasn't the biggest of rooms by any means, however it was comfy and we enjoyed the breakfast since it was the only place in Iceland where we got some other food besides the typical bread, jam and meat but also waffles and pastries. I could not give it 5 stars though because their wifi was not working and because the shower curtain was too short for the shower and it made a flood in our bathroom which is never comfortable. I never understand why places just don't have curtains of proper lengths. Another improvement would be an elevator.

I found this hotel to be terrific. The man who works there in the evenings was especially helpful. Akureyri is a beautiful place to visit - we especially enjoyed seeing the nearby Myvatn Lake and surrounding sights. Highly, highly recommend Hotel Akureyri.

Hi, hotel akureyri is a nice and not expensive hotel. It's a little bit strange but very individual.
The hotel has no lift, so if you have heavy luggage you have to know it. Rooms are also very particular, strange furniture.
Brekfast is great!.. they had all you can imagine to eat for breakfast. It's also quite attended by many kind of persons like business man or old couple.
We were happy to stay at the Hotel akureyri.

We stayed here for three nights in early October, and thoroughly enjoyed it. We asked for and got a third floor room with a view of the sound (there's no elevator, but that's a minor inconvenience). The room was small but very efficiently designed and comfortable. The location is perfect, quiet but 100 metres from the centre of town, close to the airport and Highway 1 for driving to Lake Myvatn There's an exceptional Icelandic breakfast with smoked salmon, pickled herring, cheese, meats, cereals and skyr. Coffee is always available in the lounge. The staff were wonderful. A day of heavy snowfall limited excursions one day, but the hotel lent us towels and we walked to the swimming baths (quite new and among the best we have been to in Iceland) where we lounged in the outside hot pools as the snow fell.
