          This was our 2nd visit to Iceland and we wanted to travel further than Reykjavik, we decided to have 2 nights in Akureyri itself and selected the Hotel Akureyri, I have to say it was a longer drive than we anticipated but on arrival at the hotel we were warmly greeted, given our room keys immediately, and our rooms were warm, comfortable and very clean. The beds had lovely light feather duvets and pillows, a good nights sleep was had. The location was great and shops and restaurants were all within walking distance. The breakfast was continental, the hot part of the offering being waffles that you made yourself, the waffle maker and prepared batter was provided and they were very good. Alan who usually does the night shift was particularly helpful to us, giving us tips on where to go, ensuring we filled our 1 full day out in that area with ideas for places we would never have found or visited if not for his help. On our 2nd night he even knocked on our door just after we had arrived back in around 11 pm to tell us the Northern Lights were visible if we wanted to see them, and we did - not very spectacular for us but we did see them. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. There are different things to see in the North of the Island and this hotel is ideal for a short stay.

          The staff were very helpful. The hotel was set in beautiful surrounddings, with views to the fjord and mountains. The breakfast was nice and tea/coffee available all day.

          The view from our room...was breathtaking. The staff were super sweet and always available...and always super helpful!!! The room was quaint, clean, and warm. No frills. But, we didn't need frills! It's right off of Harnarstraeti....which is the main road to shopping, dining, & such. We highly suggest going down the street to your left when leaving the hotel to the Backpacker's Bar/Cafe for your morning coffee & they have these amazing croissants filled with ham & icelandic cheese that are available after 11am or so....LOVELY Way to wake up!!! The hotel absolutely has a continental breakfast...the bread is amazing. The coffee is from a machine, however....which is why we suggest the Backpacker's cafe.

          The beds are super soft....and that actually was a downfall for us. It caused us back aches, etc. But, honestly....that's the only complaint we could even think of! We loved this place!!!!

          300m away from city center. We had the view facing the lake which was excellent

          The room was shockingly small. The toilet was clean but the poor building structure did not filter the foul air from the drainage system. It was horrible to be breathing in that condition. Reported to the reception and they sprayed some air freshner. That stayed for a while and it dissipated. We were out most of the time (we stayed for 5 days) so really didnt want to kick a big fuss. wish it had been better. this is the only sad part of our stay in akureyri. Staff at the hotel were mostly very young students from university. They lack the warm hospitality of a small hotel. Maybe it is their culture. I stayed in Smari Hotel in Reykjavik and the Asian staff there were awesome. They make you feel like old friends.

          The hotel was clean and staff was very friendly. It was within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants in the middle of town.

          The hotel was in a good location with nice views from windows.

          The room was very small, hardly big enough for the double bed, with no seating other than a small desk and chair.

          The hotel is in a fantastic central location, yet with amazing views of the mountains and estuary, within a couple of minutes walk of the main bus park, for those taking day excursions etc., it couldnt be more convenient. Also 2 minutes walk from lovely restaurants, bars, shops etc.

          The rooms felt very hot, also curtains did not fit, so their was no protection from the 24 hrs of daylight, hence very little sleep!

          The staff was great! Very friendly and helpful, especially Allen, who even let us do a load of laundry in their commercial machine. Also, there is a convenient coffee machine in the breakfast room, which they let people use all day. I probably had 10 cups of espresso in 2 days! While the TVs in the room didn't get many channels, there is a huge tv in the lounge with a huge selection of channels. The location is very convenient to both the Ring Road and downtown Akureyri, and there is lots of parking. The breakfast buffet was standard Icelandic fare, filling and tasty, and the breakfast room is kept immaculate.

          As with many European hotels, the rooms are small compared to what Americans are used to. How much time are you spending in the room anyway?

          The location, over the fjord..Beautiful breakfast. We had a room with a view, on the last floor. Free wi-fi, close to tiny city centre very clean

          Quiet and clean and comfortable

          There was no waterboiler in the room so you can´t get a cup of tea if you would like to. Staff could have cleaner clothes and be a bit more greating when you arive. I just got the keey handed over and nothing more. Not a world about where I should go.

          Would have been nicer with a larger outside seating area and bar.

          I stayed two nights in Hotel Akureyri in December 2011. The location is excellent: quiet yet very central. The view from my room was superb. The room itself seemed to be redone recently, with modern and comfortable furniture, including a desk and a small fridge. This is a small and intimate hotel and the managers were very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast menu. Computer for guests. I'd stay here again.

          The room (a European double) was great for me, but it was not very large. A couple might expect more space to move around. The beds are huge and comfortable, the bathroom good but rather tiny.
