  • A bit disappointed by Hotel Kea - small dark rooms which were really warm and overpriced…

    Small but nice

    Very nice stay in an older hotel. The rooms were a bit on the small side but nothing atypical for Europe. The staff was helpful and friendly and breakfast was tasty.

    Location is great

    The hotel is great on all counts: friendly, clean, great restaurant. But the location is the best. Across from pedestrian street, great restaurant and shopping and short walk to water front

    Great Stay in Akureyri

    Amazing location in Akureyri. Right at the steps of the church. Good restaurant and bar onsite. Window of the room faced the church steps, making privacy a little challenging. Limited parking, but very good place overall.

    OK hotel, but not good value

    Hotel Kea is marketed as a first class hotel, so my review is going to be sound picky. But if you charge first class prices, you need to deliver first class accommodation. The room was a good size, but poorly laid out. A chair was squeezed in between the cupboard and the bed, that meant you couldn't really open the cupboard doors. The toiletries were nice, but nothing special. The towels were good size, but not especially soft or fluffy. No robes or slippers provided. "Coffee service" means they have a kettle and some wrinkled old packets of instant. There was one English breakfast tea bag, and one "fruit" tea bag. Again, nothing special. The bed linens were ok, but they provide a winter weight duvet in summer time. The beds were not very good -- I think they were frame sprung (rather than pocket sprung), meaning that when you or your partner moves the whole thing wobbles. The bathroom is poorly laid out. The towel rack is a meter and a half from the shower, so you have to put your towel on the floor or the sink. Only one towel really fits on the towel rack, so you have to swap the towels around to make sure they dry by the next day. It was overall ok. But the prices being are charged are not for rooms that are "ok." This property is a good example of why, in normal times, I leave Iceland and go abroad for vacation. The cost of a US flight and a US hotel winds up costing less and delivering more than just staying in Iceland.

    Just OK. Room was really tiny, overheated and had an awful, uncomfortably small bathroom. Odd hotel layout so you could not use a lift to the room directly but had to drag heavy bags up and down various stairs and corridors. Poor breakfast and very cheeky to replace breakfast baked goods with cheap biscuits. Only thing in it’s favour is location.

    Very comfortable, right in the center of town with plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Not to forget the hotels own restaurant where we had a super meal.

    I would stay again

    The location is perfect, the staff is very professional. I booked for two, we got two beds that were extra skinny twin sized. After driving, and doing some work (and still had more work to do) I was too exhausted to ask to switch to a room with a single double bed. They weren't very comfortable either. Everything else was really quite lovely.
