Pros: A great find. The farm is in a beautiful setting and Elizabeth our host was very helpful and attentive. The rooms were clean, comfortable and had a magnificent backdrop of the local waterfall.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The farmhouse is lovely. With only 3 rooms it is very cozy and comfortable. The room and bathroom was nicely furnished and equipped and very clean. We liked the seating area in the kitchen. Tea, coffee, and great home made cookies were available all day long. The breakfast was exceptional. We also had 2 great fish dinners. It was obvious that Elizabeth, the owner, enjoys what she is doing :-). She is a great cook, easy to talk to, and very helpful. The location is very nice, great view, a nice walk through the pastures to a waterfall is possible. Akureyri is very close and Lake Myvatn can be leisurely explored as a day trip.

Pros: The owner, Elisabeth, makes the stay the most comfortable ever... there was nothing she wouldn’t accommodate. She toured us around their farm, let us meet some sheep, see the new born calves and made us an amazing vegetable soup with a berry crumble for dinner. I would drive to Akureyri just to stay at her guesthouse again!
Cons: Nothing
Apt. Hotel Hjalteyri - Akureyri - Building

9.6 Excellent (378 reviews)

Located in Hjalteyri, 19 km from Akureyri, Apt. Hotel Hjalteyri features views of the sea and the mountains from every apartment. Every room has a flat-screen TV and a private bathroom. All guests have access to a communal hot tub and can enjoy a drink at the snack bar. Free WiFi is available throughout the property and free private parking is available on site.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is a perfect place to stay. Quiet and well maintained. Far enough away from Akureyri to feel you are away from the city, but close enough to drive in for supper and seeing the sights.
Cons: My only issue was the water pressure in the shower. Not sure if it was on my part, but the 2 bedroom apartment had no water pressure in the shower. It would trickle on and then off making it hard to wash my hair or rinse off. However, this for me was a smaller issue that I will not mark them off for. I just hope the see to the issue for future. I love this property.
9.5 Excellent

Pros: Beautifully presented hotel in a stunning location, with wonderful rooms that are spotless and well designed. The breakfast was delicious, the homemade baked omelette was superb. All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We didn’t want to leave
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The entire hotel was clean. Really clean with spacious rooms. There were only 6 apartments in the entire building so it was quiet, the only time we saw or heard other guests was during breakfast. The hotel is in a remodeled school house that has clean white walls with shelves lined with books and artwork everywhere. The entire staff was very helpful. Upon arrival we were shown to our apartment by the lady in reception. She showed us where everything was in the apartments and made sure we didn't need anything before leaving. Another time a gentlemen in the reception helped us find a good place for dinner, he even called a nearby restaurant that he recommended to find out if they were busy. They were so he sent us somewhere else. We tried his first recommendation the next night, both of his recommendations were wonderful. Breakfast in the reception area was overseen by one or two young ladies every morning who kept the tables clean and set out place settings and made sure we had anything we needed.
Cons: Checking out was horrible because we didn't want to leave. The only minor issue we encountered was that streaming Netflix on the smart TV didn't work very well on one night out of the 3 that we stayed. But that was no big deal, we watched the aurora over the owner's classic car collection in the back parking lot instead.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is beautifully appointed with everything you could wish for and a very lovely view plus the mattress was so comfortable I wish I had one just like it at home.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Super spacious room, kitchen annex, living room and toilet. A lot of free parking space. Extraordinary collection of paintings on the walls of the entire hotel. Very close to Whale Watching tour departing from Hjalteyri.
Cons: Hot tub could have been turned on all the time, instead of having to inform the staff about wanting to use it, but that's really the only thing that I could think of.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely boutique hotel - a real gem!!Location along fjord and flanked by mountains. Immaculately clean and like walking into a gorgeous art gallery. Owner/host very kindly upgraded our room to an apartment as not fully booked on night we stayed. He also prepared the spa and lit candles for us to enjoy the hot tub late in the evening. This was a highlight of our trip as the Northern Lights appeared while relaxing in the spa! Highly recommended- do not miss a stay here.
Cons: Nothing. Wished we could have stayed longer.

Pros: The restaurant (see photo) was fabulous - great food with wonderful presentation, rooms were spotless, staff was very friendly and helpful, incredible setting, and very cleverly decorated with local artisan work that was clever and unique.
Cons: It kind of threw us when they said “shared bathrooms only” but as the guesthouse was converted from a senior living facility, it was laid out very conveniently.

Also, even though we don’t need special accommodations, it is nice to see beautiful guest houses that can accommodate folks in wheelchairs.

Cons: - the common area is the kitchen which can serve limited people (they have already mentioned in this page). So if you want to prepare some food one got to be a bit earlier otherwise the area is full. - the rooms are located in 2nd to 4th floor. the twins room i got is on the 4th so need to climb quite some stairs up and down to the kitchen and shower in basement.
7.9 Good
Pros: Nice and clean room, nice bar, good breakfast
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The location and the general atmosphere of this place is fantastic. Comfy beds, warm and big bedroom. Very well equipped kitchen. Clean bathrooms, even has a sauna! Free welcome drink! Staff is nice and cool.
Cons: There are toilets on each floor but showers they only have on the ground floor (which is a crowded bar/restaurant/reception area at the same time). It was a bit odd climbing down and up from the 4th floor and crawling through a bunch of people to take a shower. Not such a big deal though.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: AB is probably the best place to stay in the city. Helpful staff, comfortable rooms, all necessary facilities, good breakfast and restaurant offer, including local beers. Great stay!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The mixed dorm gave that feminine touch that add grace and beauty that a bunch of guys never seem to be able to manifest.
Cons: Give me a break
7.1 Good
Pros: Nothing specific, overall normal hostel as expected, showers are big enough and I appreciated the free beer.
Cons: First of all, the customer service with staff lying at my face ! At first I came in with no booking but checked on booking.com and their website saying there are beds in 8-beds dorm for 3500 ISK. At the counter though the receptionist says she only has 6 4 or 2 beds dorm, all of them being gradually more expensive. I’m surprised and point out that free bed on booking and she maintains there’s none. So I’m trying to book in an 8-beds dorm, which goes through and she finally made my key and I was indeed in an 8-beds dorm. Now that’s where it gets funnier, I slept all by myself in that dorm, quite weird for a place that had « no more 8-beds ». So here’s what I think happened, oone ekse was gonna be in that dorm and so they most likely didn’t want to have a room to « clean » the following day for just one guy. So they decided to lie to me and tried to make me pay more even though this service was available. This is absolutely unacceptable, the solution would have been to put me in a 6-beds dorm for the price of an 8 if they wanted to fill their dorms and spare to go through one more room! Otherwise, the kitchen is quite small with only one 4 spots stove for everyone. And they only provide with a duvet on the bed for an extra-fee. It seems the basics for a place that business is to make people sleep would be to provide the mere necessary.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Staff were very helpful and welcoming
Cons: The street noise was very loud at night
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Location - centre of Akureyri was ideal for everything we needed and free parking wasn't too far away. Room was warm and comfortable
Cons: Couldn't figure out how the shower worked (it was fed through the bath taps) and I'm sure the solution was straightforward just not made clear. Same issue with the coffee machine, it needed the beans ground down but I'm far too simple and would have been happier with instant coffee and a kettle!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: New apartma.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Property is based in a city center, easy to walk around, 24h parking nearby (5 min). Clean rooms and good furniture. Staff is very nice and kind. Kitchen with all necessary staff to cook. Recommend to stay here.
Cons: Only one minus: Door in the bathroom in the room was not fixed so it was moving and did not fully closing. If you are traveling alone don’t mind, but if you will be with somebody it will be kind of lack of privacy :)
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very simple, yet comfortable accommodation in a perfect location. Nothing luxurious but easy to check in and out and shops and restaurants just steps away. No parking but there is a large lot that had plenty of parking available on a weekend that was free and easy to walk to from the guesthouse.
8.3 Excellent

Pros: Location, confort
Cons: There is no kitchen facility
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Loved the property and location. Could easily walk strong to find good, drinks, and take pictures to create everlasting memories.
8.5 Excellent
Pros: We have stayed in the top apartment in Attic Which could be good. Could be. The apartment itself had fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. Nice, not that soft mattress. Everything super clean.
Cons: There were few things that made me feel uncomfortable. First of all - bed. Even though it was not soft (I like that) the bed was right under the roof which means if you sit down, you will bump your head. There are two bedrooms and this problem is in every room. One of them does not even have window! During the night you will either be cooked from the heat or couldn’t sleep because of the emergency exit sign shining to your face with bright light. Can not forget all of the papers from owner where is - if you do not clean, do not do that and that, you will get fine if 300 euros. We were leaving with fear of getting the fine. Firs time we were cleaning the room before we left. All together it makes this place a bit lower than average.
6.2 Good

Cons: walls are like paper

7.0 Good
Pros: Excellent location in the heart of akureyri. Room had good kitchen utilities.
Cons: Room is very small. It felt very tight even for 2 people.
4.5 Okay
Pros: The apartment was OK, had a kitchen, the bathroom was a bit dated but clean. They had weird rules about cooking. No garlic/onions and no heavy cooking otherwise they will fine you and the fine is min 300 euro if remember correctly. Of course we don't do heavy cooking when we travel, I don't think anybody does but still, I feel they need to mention it before people book.
Cons: The major issue was the location. It was downtown and did not come with parking but the description made you feel like it's easy to park near by. Well, it's not. We parked at the place that was suggested in the pamphlet we found in the apartment and received parking ticket for $100 + processing fee the next day. The pamphlet said it's free until 10 am next day. Our ticket time was 9:54 am and the ticket stated we can not park there ( we asked rental agency to translate). And of course we don't understand Icelandic, we can't read the signs so .... Do yourself a favor and rent a place that comes with the parking. The city is very small so no point to struggle with parking.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The flat is nicely equipped, it’s very comfortable for 2 couples and the location is good

Pros: This hotel is located at the top of a hill right in town. We had views of the mountains around us and the water below. What more can I say...loved it!
8.5 Excellent
Pros: Clean, and nice hotel. Good value for the money.
Cons: Location of bathroom was odd and uncomfortable. If is right behind the head of the bed and you hear everything. Other than that good rooms.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is comfortable, the staff friendly and responsive and the location excellent for our purposes. It is at the high end of town, meaning there were multiple ways down to sights along the water, in downtown or over near the college. For us, the walk back uphill was a benefit, giving us some exercise after hours in our rental car. That benefit for us may not be viewed the same by others.
Cons: Not much. We had a minor malfunction with our shower but the GM personally came by to address it, a fact much appreciated by us.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Upper-floor room was great. Liked on-site restaurant. Free parking next to hotel.
Cons: Breakfast needs a bit more variety.
7.5 Good
Pros: It was clean and modern. There was also good storage which helped us get by in the cramped space. There was also ample counterspace by the sink. Beds were comfortable too.
Cons: We spent 3 nights there and felt for a Super King, the room was cramped. Also, there was just a small divider between the shower and toilet. Without spraying the head into the corner, the entire bathroom got wet. There we no night stands at the side of the bed. Breakfast was not included as complimentary. Also, while the staff was prompt and efficient they were not as friendly or eager to please as other hotels we have been impressed by in Iceland. The stay was not bad, but we felt they missed their opportunity to make it special in any way.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The shower
Cons: How the water in the shower flows over the wc floor.
7.5 Good
Pros: everything was really nice and clean and the staff was definitely friendly
