Friendly reception and good clothes-washing facilities available. The kitchen seemed well equipped but we did not use it.
We booked a room with on-suite bathroom, paying the higher rate. Unfortunately, this comes with the "benefit" of hearing all of the other guest on the floor commuting to and from the toilets as well as all the flushing as the shared facilities are located right next to room number 20 and the walls have absolutely no sound proofing quality whatsoever. The lights above the beds were battery driven - not a major issue, despite the non-sustainable aspect - but rather a pitty that all the batteries were flat! The light above the toilet in our bathroom was not working so we checked the bulb, which lead to us discovering that there was clearly a rather disturbing wobbly electrical contact in the cabling. As soon as we touched the light it would flicker on and off. Beyond the lighting, the bathroom was clean but had a pervasive smell of mould and the small radiator's fixtures were broken so it was hanging on to the wall by luck more than anything else. This could potentially be dangerous if someone is careless and puts any kind of weight or pressure on it, as it may lead to a hot water pipe rupturing and scalding.
Seydisfjodur is very charming and I’m glad I chose to stay here over Egilstadir. Right next to an awesome swimming pool and the town bar. The rooms are very pretty
The town is gorgeous and very walkable. The location of this hotel is perfect. We did not use the kitchen although it looked very clean and well organized. The restaurants nearby were fantastic. The hotel was spotless and very quiet. We did not use the sauna but the showers were huge and there seemed to be plenty of them for the number of guests. We would definitely stay here again.
Great room size (double with bathroom), access to laundry, good kitchen. Fantastic location easy walk to central town. Shoes off inside property
Usually we do not stay at hostels because some persons of our group do not like it. this time we tried it because they also offer rooms with private bath. We were really happy. I liked the atmosphere of the old hospital. Every room is different and has it’s own character. The joined kitchen is well maintained and clean. You can find everything you need. They even have a new sauna for their guests - a nice add on - especially with Icelandic weather ;) the hostel is located right in the centre, 2 min walking distance to the supermarket, a great fish restaurant and also the church.
I can understand that everybody needs to take the shoes off. But I really disliked people running around without socks ... that’s unhygienic and not necessary. Price for rooms is quite high.
