From flying through the Fjiord and landing at the airport for the Capital of northern Iceland you are met by the stunning vista and fantastic white light of the surrounding snow on the mountains. The hotel was warm and friendly and centrally located between the old town and the expanding new town next to the iconic church. The staff were...

Hotel Kea was a nice spot to stay - the location is great, the restaurant good, and the beds comfy. Only odd thing was no English language TV other than sports. So, go ahead, ask me about English Football! WiFi also quite reliable, useful for work!

I have just come back from a four day tour of North Iceland and stayed at the Hotel Keo. The hotel and staff are lovely. It's in the town centre with everything a short walk away. I would recommend this hotel as a great place to stay.

Nice morning walk in Stykkisholmur hiked up the mountain then we departed for Akureyri (અકુરેરી) cultural capital of the North. Traveled from Stykkisholmur to Akureyri (northern part of Iceland). We can see stunning views of snow-capped peaks, water falls from our room. Hotel is located in the center of the city. Again beautiful scenery, ice capped mountains, ravins, valleys, pure...

My wife and I stayed here as part of a northern Iceland trip. We couldn't have asked for a nicer hotel. The staff (especially the young man working in the bar / restaurant mid week), food and the room were 1st class. Nothing was a problem at all. I would highly recommend hotel Kea.

Fantastic location in the heart of town, very comfortable rooms on the fifth floor, with a lovely outlook over the city. Beautifully comfortable beds and opening windows with easily adjustable room temperatures. Good showers and staff were very accommodating with information and a late checkout when our flights were constantly delayed and then cancelled. A flight departure and arrival board...

Our visit to this hotel was good. We had a triple room ( the only place in town that had this type of accommodation. The room was not large but we were comfortable in it. The breakfast was good with breads, meats, fruit, cereal, eggs, and more. The staff was helpful in answering questions and arranging taxis for us.

Imagine all you take at breakfast from the table full of food is: cheese, water and nice coffee because of some health restrictions. So, you beg the receptionist and the breakfast staff who both are not busy at all at the moment to just make you one short single espresso to kick off your day.. And you beg and you...

Wish I can give 3.5 stars. Best thing here is the breakfast. The room was very tight since I had one luggage and two carry ons in it. The room was stuffy and hot. And the shower is small. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Area is close to many shops.

My husband and I had a lovely stay here on our honeymoon. The receptionist was welcoming and very helpful with local information. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was small but the shower was great. We had dinner in the restaurant. It was a fixed holiday menu that was pricey but very delicious. The service was wonderful. The...
