Sweet and Simple
It was old fashioned and quite sweet. It was reasonably comfortable but the fact that it is managed by a larger hotel takes away a bit of the charm. Having said that, the breakfast, which was served in the hotel, was really quite nice.

Very charming. Amenities were very thorough including a kitchen with cooking equipment. A computer, WiFi, a chess board, a dining/public area. The people here are the nicest I have ever met and the town is gorgeous.

Good basic accommodations on Ísafjörður
Guesthouse made from former hospital building in old part of town. Room was large, and good facilities (kitchen, eating area, game table, bathrooms) in rest of guesthouse. Beds were comfortable, but looked like dorm room beds. Good breakfast provided in main hotel building two small blocks away.

Basic lodging in Isafjordur
Basic lodging in a guest house with shared bathrooms. The room had a sink. Our only gripes were with the ancient, tattered towels provided and the free breakfast at the nearby hotel (which was massively overcrowded with subpar food).

10/10 Exceptional

Cute stay. I liked that there was no time limit for check in. The dirt roads took us a lot longer than we’d thought and longer than google maps told us because we went slower than the speed limit so it was nice to not feel super rushed getting there and we were still able to fit in the few things we wanted to do on the way.
