This property is near Akranes Harbor and 0.8 mi from Akranes Museum Center. It offers a pretty, hedged garden and a large, furnished terrace. Wi-Fi and parking are free. The room was very comfortable and one could even cook. The host lives upstairs and met us out front as we drove in. I would stay again if in the Reykjavik area. Directions were very helpful and spot on.
Set a 5-minute walk from Langisandur Beach in central Akranes, Akra Guest house offers basic rooms with shared bathroom facilities. Akranes Swimming Pool is 2297 feet away. Great location, the hostess was very kind and helpful. The rooms were nice and everything was very clean. We had the place to ourselves that night but despite only 2 of us there, she provided an amazing breakfast spread! Would definitely recommend.
Móar guesthouse in Akranes has a garden and a terrace. At the guesthouse, every room includes a desk. The hosts were really nice!! It was clean and ....perfect for us!! Thota (my spelling probably bad hihi...) is a very good dog ! We loved Thota! And if your a bit tactful you can go outside at night and watch the sky without disturbing anyone ... that was amazing!
Akranes Rooms is located in Akranes, West Iceland, 26 mi from Reykjavík. Free private parking is available on site. Free WiFi is available throughout the property. Rooms come with a shared bathroom. Let me just say, this was our FAVORITE place to stay in Iceland!!! We arrive in the afternoon very tired after a red-eye fight. The lady running the place was so accommodating (even though we arrived a little before check in time). We had the room with the swirl pattern wallpaper. It was so cozy and nice! The black couch folds flat to become a very comfortable bed (additional bedding inside the wardrobe). My wife slept on the other bed, and she slept very well. The kitchen is well equipped (toaster, oven, stove, microwave, refrigerator, utensils, pans, ect). Akranes, as a city, is often overlooked by tourists. It is a nice place to spend time. There is a photogenic old shipyard with an large old wooden fishing boat, a beautiful beach, a pretty church, a pair of historic lighthouses overlooking the bay across from Reykjavik, a public square next to a coffee/hot chocolate place open until 10, and many cute neighborhoods to walk through. We drove the entire ring road, and this was a great jumping off point for our first night. We loved it so much that we stayed here a second time on our last night in the country. It is not too far from Reykjavik, but do keep in mind that there is an underwater tunnel that costs about $10 USD that saves you about 40 minutes of driving.
Located in the western Iceland town of Akranes, this guest house is less than 40 minutes' drive from central Reykjavik. Clean room with a great view, nice staff, very cosy living room and well-equipped kitchen, breakfast was served (because of off-season) at a cafe nearby (walking distance) and was very good. Well organized place, that even lets you use their tandem bikes (though it was too windy and cold that day we were there).
Located in Akranes, Móar Cottage has accommodations with a garden, free WiFi, a shared kitchen, and a shared lounge. The property has garden and sea views. We loved the countryside setting with an ocean view. We met the owner, and he was really friendly. He told us about the history of the place, and you can tell how much he loves the place. It was easy to get the keys and to check out. We would recommend staying here if you like a cozy cottage in the country.
Featuring free WiFi throughout the property, Stay Akranes offers accommodations in Akranes, 25 mi from Reykjavík. Free private parking is available on site. This is a hostel. We stayed in the family room which was very comfortable. It's no frills and quite basic but exactly what we needed for our last night in Iceland. The local pool is fantastic, and there is a nice bakery in town,but Akranes is nothing to write home about.
Within easy reach from Reykjavik. Bus number 57 is good value for money, frequent service. The Iighthouse is beautifully maintained. Perfect place for peace and quiet. However, it is rather industrial.
Gateway to Northwest Iceland, reachable by Reykjavik city buses! Not much happening there, but easy walking or a free bus makes the rounds. Enjoyed the pool and hot pots, of course. The lighthouses (old and new ones) are literally highlights! Nice people, too.
Perfect location. Not far from charismatic towns of Reykjavik, Borgames, and Stykkisholmur. Gateway to picturesque West Iceland. Few tourists. A charming fishing town. Don't miss the thermal swimming pool and hot tubs.
Akranes does not have a lot of sights, there is a lighthouse and there is a beach. Otherwise the town appears a bit sad. We ate at the thai restaurant which was ok - the fried shrimp where really good and the rest was ok.
This isn't much of a town. It's close enough to Reykjavik that you may as well stay there. Very few restaurants - we could only find three and they all closed at 9pm. So after 9pm you're having dinner at the gas station. Really.
Nothing really to do - we went and saw the light house/shipwreck. weather was bad and that didn't help... but just not an attractive place. we didn't go on hikes though - just passed through.

Perfect place to relax and close enough to see the best ever fireworks we’ve ever seen at New Year in Akranes.A solid hour all done by the locals. We did manage to see Northern Lights but bit blurry . Cottage lovely and warm and had everything needed to eat in. Lovely genuine owner with lots of advice on Iceland. Thank you

Convenient location not far away from Reykjavik (45 minutes drive, 1000 ISK toll road). Akranes is not the most charming town in Iceland but it will provide a good starting /ending point on your ring road plan, without paying the prices of Reykjavik. The house is great, with good and clean shared facilities.
9.1 Awesome 376 reviews
The owners were great and very friendly. This is a bit outside of Reykjavik which was actually a bit of an accident for us but it was an easy ~40 min bus ride that has a regular daily schedule. Breakfast was included and the town was very nice, though most things closed very early (as with most of Iceland).

We loved to stay there. The warm-hearted couple welcomed us really friendly. The apartment was more than just comfortable we felt at home. Really everything was provided. Definitely our favorite accommodation in Iceland during our 2 weeks travel.
