About Akureyri

Akureyri stands strong as Iceland’s second largest city outside the capital area but don’t expect a big city feel. With only 18.000 inhabitants, it is a wonder how such a small city (which would be a town in any other country) can generate so much buzz. It has cool and cosy cafés, superb restaurants, and a very decent nightlife considering the size of the town. With its relaxed attitude and extensive food and accommodation choices, it is the natural base for exploring North Iceland.

Sparkling clean, friendly, great location.

Nicest guesthouse I have ever been in — sparkling clean. The location was perfect – in a quiet area just up the hill from town, and steps from the local swimming pools. Inga was so genuinely nice and helpful – really made us feel at home. I wish we could have stayed longer. I hope we can return someday!

Great, affordable stay in Akureyri

I highly recommend this guesthouse. The owner was friendly, helpful, and welcoming. Laundry is allowed at no additional charge. The bathrooms were spacious and spotless. There was a nice kitchen and shared living room with TV. To get to the main street downtown was only a 10 minute walk. It was the cheapest guesthouse I found in the area, and it surpassed my expectations.


We were there for one night and we loved it! Everything was clean, the room was good, the bed was very big and comfortable and the sheets were great! Awesome place and location, the service was good and the price even better.
