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.

We chose this place as it was away from the main part of Akureyri, but only a few minutes drive away. With views across the water to the city, this place was perfect for us. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was very adequate and we had parking almost outside our door. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Hafdals is like coming home... It is to us the very best option to stay in Akureyri for several reasons. 1 the owner and his impeccable service and the way he maintains this wonderful place 2 the closeness to the city and at the same time to have the peace and quietness to enjoy the scenery in a very selected and well equipped room and terrace. The view is breathtaking !!! 3 The quality of resting and enjoying yourself on a trip to us is priceless and this has been the perfect spot. 4 A selective Breakfast is served on the top floor. The impression of the view will stay in your mind long after you arrived back home 5 we need to come back to explore in depth the zone of Akureyri

Picture-perfect location on mountain just opposite town and about a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk. We even saw Northern Lights from our balcony. Delicious buffet breakfast. A retired farmer, the owner and his family lives on the premises and is VERY kind and responsive to guests' needs. Being from this area he is a source of information about activities to do in North Iceland - and speaks English well. Every room has a fantastic view. An additional plus is a newly created geothermal bath/spa about two minutes away!

Spent two nights at the Hafdals - thoroughly positive experience. Beautiful, well-proportioned, clean room with wonderful views over the causeway. Breakfast was best we've had in Iceland. Very friendly owner, who can't do enough to help. Highly recommended.

We hit a jackpot with this one! There are not alot of rooms (maybe 8 total?) so make sure to book asap! It is a family-owned hotel, very cleaned and the buffet breakfast with beautiful scenic views makes your morning start perfect! It is located the opposite side of the town of Akureyri, passing through the bridge, but its not too far. Godafoss is not too far from here either. Hafdals Google translate to “Sea Valley” and that’s exactly what you get, a view of the sea and valley down below. There are two floors, and if you are on the first floor, you have a walk-out into the view. You can sip your coffee as you are watching cars pass by in the bridges. Gives you a very relaxing feeling. The room is clean and bed comfortable. There is an added bonus of refrigerator in the room. Free toiletries shampoo and conditioner available. Another added bonus is the free breakfast with fruits, cereals/yogurt, coffee or tea, scrambled eggs, bacon and pastries.

The hotel is very new, the rooms are beautiful and are furbished high end. The team is very lovely and chatty. We felt very welcome! Breakfast had a lovely selection, the best we had seen in Iceland and the view was magical. We regretted not to stay longer.

The hotel is located just outside Akureyri with a beautiful view of the city. The rooms are quiet and very clean, with large and comfortable beds. The breakfast was excellent, with everything fresh and tasty. The owner was extremely nice and attentive. Highly recommend it.

So glad we took a chance on this hotel - it is across the river from Akureyri high up on hill looking over the city and mountains, perfect for sunsets. The room was very large and clean. Not sure I agree with soundproof rooms as we could hear our neighbors come in at night and use bathroom and talk. This was in room 7 which has a balcony on top floor. Great little coffee machine with a selection of pods including hot chocolate which we enjoyed on the balcony on a chilly night. We were able to check in midday and the owner was gracious and helpful. Like others mentioned, He accomodated our early checkout with breakfast before the normal hours starting at 8. A nice basic selection of fruits, skyr, juices and breads. If you are staying in Akureyri with a car definitely check Hafdals out over staying in the city - you will not be disappointed.

We stayed at the hotel for one night. The room was specious and clean, the bed was comfortable. The room has an exit to a shared terrace which is convinient if you want to try and catch the northen lights :) The owner/host was very kind and considerate - we had to leave the hotel before breakfest time, so he opened breakfest half an hour earlier for us.
