Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The young lady behind the information reception was most helpful and knowledgeable. Perfect English considering she went to University in Scotland.
Plenty of free maps and information available.

Nice looking building in the heart of Akureyri. Visited this center in the morning and it was bustling with activity. A chess tournament as well as some other unidentifiable classes were in full gear. Great architectural design leads to some nice photo opportunities on the harbor. Inside there is some artwork honoring the first Icelandic woman to vote - Wilhelmina Lever. On a side note, there are nice public restrooms located in the basement level of the center. You can park in the lot or walk from across the main street to find these nice, clean, public restrooms.

Nice building arcitechture. Designed specifically as a theatre for the performing arts, Hof Cultural and Conference Center also plays host to conferences and important meetings, receptions and exhibitions. Inside is also a visitors center with lots of information on the Akureyri area, good restaurant and a tourist souvenir shop. Very helpful and enthusiastic staff in the information Centre and shop. Beautiful and impressive building .

We visited here to seek advice on how to pay the tunnel toll fee and ended up receiving much more useful information regarding weather conditions, advice on which roads to take, etc. We visited during a violent snow storm and were extremely anxious about the weather conditions and the state of navigating the roads with our non-4 wheel drive car. In the end, the staff gave us great advice and were extremely professional and calming to us. I would highly recommend anyone visiting here to seek help and consultation on any travel or weather issue.

We headed straight here when we came off the ship as it holds the Travel Information Centre, the staff were very helpful, a good map was provided, as well as some good info on places to see. Talking to other people they didnt get to see the things we saw. Thank you for your help.

There are signs to the visitor/information center until you get to the parking lot, then it isn't clear where it is. It's on the ground floor of the Center. Because we didn't know how to pay for the toll tunnel leading into Akureyri from the east, we were so happy the staff led us to a computer set up for this and walked us through the process. If you don't pay within three hours, you pay more. There's also a nice gift shop and toilets downstairs. They gave us directions for the things we wanted to see, and were very helpful.

Don’t bother asking for a large coffee...you get a big cup..charge for large...and they fill from the small cup! Ultra rip off even by Iceland standards!

Whether you go to a concert or event or just visit the building, this round culture house right on the edge of the fjörd is an absolute stunner! I have visited many times since the Autumn of 2010, eaten some lovely meals in the Bistro and attended events. Nowadays, there is also an upstairs seafood restaurant, but I have never tried that.

Tourist information is inside the Hof, even when the office is closed local events and info are clearly posted.

On Saturday 20th April I went to concert. Hof, really know how to stage an event and make it magnificent! If you get the chance - go to Hof!

I went with my adult son but there is no section for that in the drop down menu below so I have selected friends. Whether you come alone, go with family or someone special Hof is special!

1-2 hours will allow you to have a meal. If you attend an event you need longer. If you just pop in for a few minutes, you will, I am sure, be very impressed.

Hof is one of the most interesting building in Akureyri. A great cultural center. It also has the 1862 Bistro which is quite nice and I also went into one inhouse concept store. I very nice one that does NOT sell the Ittala vases.

We left our cruise ship and walked here. We gathered information on the region from the pamphlets, advertisements, and from the helpful staff. It is also a community center full of kids.
