Fair 4,0
Youth hostel priced as hotel
Quite disappointed in this stay. For the price the building and decor is very dated, it had the feel of a 1950s youth hostel rather than a hotel. Didn’t state that was shared bathroom facilities with the rest of the floor. These were clean and modern but just unexpected and again for the price not what would expect. The breakfast buffet was good.

Given room with smaller bed
I had booked a room with a double bed, but was given a room with a twin bed. When I inquired about this, I was not impressed with the customer service. They said the cost was the same for either room and didn’t apologize. I was disappointed to be given a room with a smaller bed and no recompense for that.

Was a nice area and great view overlooking the river. Good location so we could walk to about everything we wanted to see. Would stay here again.

Clean but not comfortable
Its a nice place to stay, but i would not call it a "hotel". Rooms dont have a bathroom and you have to wake up in the middle of the night, get dressed, take your key and walk down the hall to use the rest room. In the morning, you have to go shower down the hall as well... it looks like a converted school or an office building but definitely not a hotel style. Also, rooms dont have a ref, tea/coffee pot.

Good 6,0
The room was good but the shower tiles was very dirty, coated with a thick layer of grime. Given this is a hotel, the expection is to provide shampoo but you had to buy it.

Excellent service
Excellent service, quickly solved a mistake (probably by me) in room type. A bit further from center than I realised, or rather more uphill, breakfast a bit expensive, but I guess this time of the year at this location. But a quiet spacious room with a great view.

Nice big hotel in Acureyri
Everything was great except GPS took us to their backside. We were close but the signs for the hotel on this small street were missing. It was frustrating to find it. Getting back to route 1 from the hotel's main entrance was easy. Everything else was great. We enjoyed our stay and walked to city.

No elevator in hotel
Hotel has no elevator so you have to carry your luggage to 3rd floor. Room is small. Shared bathroom and toilet is pretty okay.
