    Very Romantic

    I looooved this Hotel. The bed and pillows were super comfy. I couldn't miss 4-hour sunlight of the day but some days, I wished I could just stay in bed all day. It was that comfy! The staff were very friendly and helpful. It's about 10 minute drive from the airport. If you don't have a lot of luggage and like to walk, you could actually walk alongside the lake. Walking distance to downtown where all the restaurants are. Facility is very well maintained. It's like a mansion. Although it didn't bother me one bit, it's a walk up. I stayed on the top floor which was 4th floor. The view from the room was amazing. The room had a safety lock, mini refrigerator, desk, closet, and 2 night stands. The hallways were decorated with sculptures and chandeliers. The dinning room/bar is open all day. If no staff are around, just ding the bell or shout "hello" someone will show up immediately. I went there during slow season so that might be why there were a lot less staff. Highly recommend!

    Great location and just a couple minutes walk to plenty of restaurant/ cafe options. Reception staff was very helpful in recommending Rub23 restaurant for dinner and it was a convenient/ excellent recommendation on our first day in Akureyri.

    Would reccommend

    Its a good situated hotel, a few meters from the main street with restaurants, but not in the middle of a noisy street. Rooms were great, big beds. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Would recommend.

    Très agréable

    Nous avons adoré séjourner d’as ce charmant hôtel. Les chambres sont petites mais décorées avec goût. La propreté est irréprochable. Le personnel est très serviable est à l’écoute (grosse pensée pour la jeune espagnole qui est à la réception (Élia ??)) et la gérante qui sont adorables). Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le petit dejeuner et les paysages environnants. Une piste de ski se trouve à 8 minutes en voiture de l’hôtel.

    Einfaches, aber gepflegtes Mittelklasse-Hotel.

    Einfaches, kleines Hotel am Rande des Stadt-Zentrums. Zentrum in 5 Minuten zu Fuss erreichbar. Aufmerksames Personal. Preis-/Leistung stimmt.
