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.

It is a difficult review. The place was cheap for sure, but it did come at a price. It was in the middle of nowhere, which meant great views but you have to drive half an hour to Akyreyri. Self check-in, we did not see any staff the whole time. Showers were kind of awful, there was coffee but despite the signs no kitchen so you could make your own breakfast. Pool table was worn to pieces. I don't know, the place just felt cold and empty, even though all the decorations and furniture fit nicely together and it was artsy. I'd go somewhere else, but as I said, it was cheap. DO NOT go to the van though, the advertise it as some exotic experience, it is just bad.

Our stay here was lovely. The self-check-in was easy and the location is great. Clean and comfortable, but also extremely homey and welcoming place. It made even just crashing here for the night relaxing and pleasant. Highly recommend!

We had a lovely stay. Good service, friendly atmosphere. The hot pot was not yet up and running, otherwise all excellent. (There are other hot springs nearby though, in Hjalteyri etc.) Great big hall for breakfast or meals.

We really enjoyed our stay at Arnarnes Paradise, well equipped with everything u need, even a clotheshorse. Luckily saw northern lights around the house and through windows (the only one night we saw lights during the whole trip). Hopefully will return someday.

Its a nice cozy place, and you have the honor to be welcomed by elves 😁 We stayed there for a night. Everything was really nice. Clean bathrooms, shared area and our room. Comfortable beds, they provide towels and shower gel. Its the best place to see auroras, due to no lights from buildings around it.

It was a comfortable and fun place with pool table and hot tub. The host is friendly and helpful. Rooms and common areas are clean and tastefully decorated. The location is close to Akureyri and near the sea. We enjoyed our stay here and recommend to book!

This was a nice property at an absolutely gorgeous location. Had a homely feel to it. Was a great experience interacting with the other guests in the common area which was very well kept. There is a hot tub outside which we enjoyed on one of the days alongwith the beautiful views. The owner's grand daughter who mainly took care of the property was very nice and friendly. Overall, an amazing experience.

This is a wonderful place to stay. It’s beautiful. The owner is very familiar with the area and gave us great ideas on what to do and see. We got a discount on the whale watching excursion because of her. She also teaches a yoga class and uses essential oils and natural products. Very clean and homey. Have stayed there twice in two years. Will stay there again!
