Great Location
Great location close to a lot of restaurants. Free street parking was great and the owner was very friendly when she met us upon arrival. We couldn’t get hot water to work in our room shower, but the shared showers got really hot and were great. For the price, it was a great stay!

Would come back again
Overall a great place to stay. Friendly staff (and cat). Quiet. The kitchen area was good as long as other guests cleaned up. On nice warm days there is a patio with views to the west. I stayed there 4 nights (with private bathroom) and was lucky to park the car on the street right outside during the night and weekend. The street has only 15 min parking between 10am and 4pm Mon-Fri. Many stores and restaurant.

Perfect location, great for a family
The 3BR penthouse unit was perfect for our family of 5. The apt was larger than anywhere else we stayed in Iceland. The location was perfect, right on the main street, easy to walk to shops and restaurants. The living room was enormous and let us spread out while relaxing. We stayed only 1 night but would have loved to stay more. The town of Akureyri is a great location to stay to take day trips to Husavik and Lake Myvatn.

Perfect place to say downtown
What an amazing find in Akureyri! Location could not be better, the penthouse was roomy, tastefully furnished, quiet, and well equipped for our stay as a family of two adults two teens. Daniel was super helpful in recommending real, authentic places to eat and visit in the area. Everything he recommended was a homerun. You would be hard pressed to find a better urban vacation space than this.

Good value for money
overall good - very nice staff and very practical to be so central. It is a budget place, so don´t expect more, I think you get a lot for your money. One problem though (and it goes for all places) is that the tv sets are difficult to work and only seem to send the same programs over and over again.

Great comfortable guesthouse centrally located
This location is very convenient. Since we arrived after desk was closed they had an intercom system to allow access to guesthouse. Key was available and room was clean and beds were comfortable. There were many places to eat close by. The Akureyi Church is less than a block walk. A central location with good parking close by.

Great overnight stay!
The room was spacious and clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the location was great. There were 3 shared bathrooms for the floor, but we never had to wait.The common area had a nice kitchen and a balcony with a view of the town. I’d highly recommend staying here!
