Easy access from ring road and great views!

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic surprise with views of the mountain valley, open kitchen with spacious dining and living areas. Very clean and great design. Separate sleeping area perfect for kids or those who don't want to enjoy a little late nights while the rest do! Perfect for families with a big yard and friendly neighborhood children. Only a :20 min walk to old downtown also!

Great stay for families-beautiful, clean apartment

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 and we stayed for two great nights at Akureyri. The apartment was very comfortable for a family. It was very well organized, fully equipped with all the things you might need for a self catering apartment. It was also vey clean, with fresh linen and towels. There were instructions for everything and it was easy to operate all the utilities; TV, washing machine, dish-washer, etc. In summery for families or groups of adults, the apartment is very recomended.

Overall it is a very nice appartment. Big rooms and sleepingsrooms, nice bathroom and indeed the whole appartment is fully equipment. That is including a washmachine and dryer. We have already recommend the appartment to others! The kitchen is what you like to have if you like to cook by yourself. Enough cups and plates, maybe a bit less cooking pans. But with a grill outside. The whole appartment is clean and new, so no smelly cubboards.

Very good stay!

  • 5 of 5

The flat is wonderful, very practical and we felt like home straight away. We appreciated a lot the fact that it was furnished and the variety of ustensils, the space in each room, the brightness and the storage spaces in the bedroom. I would definitely recommend it for anyone who is looking for a flat with all convenience.

Fantastic Akureyri stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in this apartment and as with the first time it was fantastic. Everything we needed was provided and it was very clean. The area is so wonderful with so much to see and do. The public pool down the road is not to be missed. The town has delightful coffee shops and restaurants. We would love to come back again! Thanks Gudrun!
