“Lovely Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2012

Just returned for Iceland on our adventure driving around the country and stayed at Saeluhus for 2 nights. The apartments are just gorgeous. They are only a couple of years old but they look like brand new. Everything was lovely there..especially the view from the balcony. Everything is fairly close by so if you chose to cater to yourself and cook in..no problem. You have all the dishes and kitchen utensils you need at the apartment. It was really, really nice to sit out on the balcony overlooking the fjord in the early am with my first cup of coffee. Beds are very comfortable..everything was spotlessly clean!! What a great choice!!

Nice comp is that they do have a 24/7 laundry facility here (which is free if you are staying here)..they even provide the laundry soap. The Saeluhus is up quite a hill so if you aren't adverse to walking it's a good hike (of course you wouldn't have the gorgeous views if you weren't up high). Free WiFi was a big plus and worked like a charm. Nice flat screen tv in the room with quite a few channels to watch if you want to. So much to see there and the surrounding areas. My only regret is that we only stayed for 2 nights...one more night and I definitely would have made the trip to Grimsey Island..but oh well..next time. The town boasts an airport which I will definitely keep in mind when I return. One of our party flew out of there back to Reykjavik as he had to leave early. What a flight that must have been!

While we stayed in the apartments..my nieces and 2 others stayed in one of the cottages. How wonderful they were! Just perfect. Big living room and kitchen..and all utensils there too, full sized refig, dishwasher, room to sleep 6 (at least)..wonderful balcony with a hot tub. They were extremely happy staying here. Oh and the the cottages also have a washer and dryer in them..sweet!!!

Great place to stay! I will be staying here when I return..couldn't ask for anything nicer!

Room Tip: Just be aware if you walk down to town..you'll have to walk back up the hill.

Stayed for one night only during my trip around the country. Wish I had booked two nights as I arrived late and had to leave early. Like being in a brand new apartment. The open plan kitchen was well stocked with utensils, flat screen tv with dvd player, lovely balcony overlooking the valley.
If I was not mistaken all equipment was new. Supermarket five minutes away if you want to self cater.
Next stay I will definitely book an apartment with a hot tub.

Room Tip: Ask for room overlooking the valley

Stayed for two nights. Great facilities, outstanding view and good location (beautiful walk through the votanical gardens on the way to central Akureyri).
Only downside was that the mattresses were a little to stiff for my taste but nothing to complain about.

Room Tip: We stayed in a studio apartment and all of them have the same layout and furnishing. Only difference...

Stayed there for a couple of nights. Our room had a hot tub with a great view. The room/apartment is very well appointed, I can't think of anything that was not there. It is a few (10-20min) walk from downtown. It is a short walk down the canyon to our favorite Restaurant in Akureyri (Noah's Ark), the walk back up the canyon seemed much longer. This is perfect location as long as you have a car. There is a laundromat in the main building, and a grocery store within a couple of minutes drive. I will definitely stay there again.

Beautiful apartments with very comfortable beds, large LCD monitor and nice balcony for having BBQ. Everything is brand-new and efficient. Kitchen is new as well with a big fridge and spacious table. The houses are near the downtonw within a very calm and relaxing district. Very useful the laundry room .
