The owner is very pleasant, but be warned that there is nobody on site until 4pm each day and then nobody after 8pm, so you have a limited window of time for contact. The room was very nice, with a little fridge and ample heating. The bathroom got messy but that was the fault of the travellers we shared with...

This guesthouse is conveniently located in Akureyri, with a grocery shop just across the street. We had a car, so didn't have to, but I think this is close enough to walk downtown. The bedding was great, we had a room for 4, and the owner was very nice and responsive.

The host was very nice and offered us a separate private room for our family free of charge. The room was spacious and the entire house is well heated, and Wifi is good. There's a jacuzzi outside but only available in summer. The place is not very clean though, probably the dirtiest guesthouse we've stayed on our trip in Iceland....

We arrived in September in what was probably the off season and unfortunately, due to a bus breakdown on the trip up, we came in much later than anticipated. There was no one on site and we couldn't get in so we had to find someone to call the caretaker. However in due course he arrived and checked us in....

I stayed in Brekkusel with my friend for one night when we were road tripping in Iceland. We didn't have a booking made before hand but luckely managed to get a room. The owner was friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our stay. The bed was comfy and the room was clean and quiet and decorated nicely.

This place is about 5 mins drive away from the domestic airport. We took a taxi and the fare was 1600 ISK. Brekkusel is about 15 - 20 mins walk to the city center and this includes walking down about 100 or more flights of steps. You will see a beautiful and prominent Lutheran church - Church of Akureyri before...
