Our rooms are situated in two historical buildings from the turn of the 19th century, which are divided into two hotels; Hótel Aldan and Hotel Snæfell. In these two buildings we offer 18 beautiful rooms, each with its own unique soul and characteristics.
Hotel Aldan used to house the bank of Seydisfjordur for almost a century and before that one of the best hotels in Iceland. All efforts has been made to preserve the historical atmosphere while adding modern convenience.
In 1898 the hotel had 19 rooms, one serving as a dancehall and a dining room. Since the hotel has been restored to it's former splendour we now offer 7 double and 2 triple rooms.
In most of the rooms there is space for an extra bed and furthermore it is possible to arrange accommodation for a family of five persons in one of our rooms.
Due to the flexible architectural layout several rooms can be combined so they either form suites or family rooms for 4 to 6 persons, without adding any extra beds.
Hotel Snæfell a three story wooden house built in 1908 situated by the mouth of the river "Fjarðará". It has beautiful views over the small bay in the center of town. This natural estuary is home to birdlife, trout and the occasional Atlantic Grey Seal. The house was first used as the local post office and then in 1943 it was turned into a hotel. Through the years it has played many a role. A shoemaker workshop was there for a few years also the taxi station and a large restaurant. The house also served as a home to several families before becoming a hotel. Among many of the people living there was Ingi T. Lárusson one of Iceland´s foremost composers.
