My wife and I were on a touring holiday around Iceland and stayed for three nights. The hotel was easy to find and parking for us was not a problem however there is not enough information regarding the parking which almost put us off booking. Firstly there's a small line of free hotel parking spaces outside the hotel to the right of the entrance. In Akureyri you can park in time limited areas but you need a parking card to display the time which was given to us for free at the hotel, and at the weekend parking is not restricted, I think it was from 6.00pm Friday to 10am Monday. The location of the hotel was the best in the area. The staff were the most helpful and friendly hotel staff I have met in Iceland! Unfortunately we didn't eat at the hotel however the menu look very good but maybe a little expensive. The fourth floor sea view made the stay for us as it had a balcony however this is also shared with another five or so rooms but it allows you to have the door open for fresh air but remember to pull the net curtains as people do walk up and down to take pictures of the sea view.The mini bar was excellent and not to over priced. The only negatives would be the lack of TV stations in the rooms however most people are not on holiday to stay in watching TV. Breakfast, good God the breakfast was bad! Just don't bother with it unless you just want toast and coffee/tea, if only it was like the Hilton in Reykjavik. No Skyr yoghurt!, no baked beans, bacon, fried egg, mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, cold water for the tea however it did have a proper toaster, not one of those stupid conveyer type's. I am English and we do like a fry up! however even for a continental breakfast which I do enjoy, the selection was very poor. Please take note as I would consider a different hotel if this was not improved :-(
