Hotel Kea, Akureyri

In the shadow of Akureyrarkirkja, Hotel Kea makes you feel at home right in the heart of Iceland’s northern capital. Allow the convivial scenes of Mulaberg Bistro’s alfresco terrace to lure you into this modern hotel, where you’ll find 104 rooms and suites waiting to welcome you.


Nowhere could leave you better poised to explore Iceland’s north than Hotel Kea. Just a quick five-minute drive from the regional airport, adventure is at your fingertips. Follow the Eyjafjordur north into the Arctic sea, head west to the geothermal wonders of Lake Myvatn or simply stay where you are with the best of Akureyri’s shops, restaurants and museums all just a short walk away.

Your Room

Classic and contemporary, Hotel Kea’s 104 rooms and suites exude a sleek minimalist style. Drawing on arctic surrounds, a neutral colour scheme washes through whilst modern touches bring comfort. The result is a space with everything you could need to unwind at the end of the day. For something special though, the top-floor suite comes hard to beat with views onto Eyjafjordur and the occasional breaching whale.

Why we like it

We love how Hotel Kea leaves you so perfectly poised to explore. In the evening, there’s nothing better than a stroll to one of the town’s eateries such as Strikid or Rub23. But if you’d rather stay in? Mulaberg Bistro offers up seasonal Icelandic ingredients prepared according to French, Italian and Danish influences. Served up in the summer beneath the midnight sun out on the terrace, its a standout spot.
