Was a little unsure how we'd find this place as neither Google Maps or our Garmin GPS recognised the address and it also goes under two names which is also a little confusing (a third now looking at Tripadvisor). Whilst driving along just had to keep our eyes peeled & eventually saw the sign saying 'Hotel Jokull' - remember that... More

The room was small with virtually no amenities (such as TV or mini-fridge or coffee maker, etc). However, the room was clean and bright, and I would have probably rated the hotel average but for the fact that it did not have free Wi-Fi (or, indeed, any Wi-Fi) in the hotel rooms.

It is a summer only place I believe. It is 7-8km outside Hofn, so you'll need transport to go in to Hofn. It is really a hostel, with a restaurant and a drinks' licence. The room was newly decorated, clean, comfortable bed and bedding. Great view out of the window of the glacier - hence the name! - and the... More

I was a bit nervous about staying in this hotel because we never stay where we have to share a bathroom located down the hall. However, I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Our room was very basic. It was almost like a dorm room but what more do you need for a one night stay on our way around... More

Well located by the Ring Road this hotel is an acceptable place to spend the night as you head round Iceland. Lack of competition means that prices in season are higher than you think they should be and the hotel is functional at best, but it is clean and convenient. The restaurant was shut when we stayed, but you will... More

Höfn doesn't have many choices when it comes to accommodation, so the local Edda hotel seemed a good option, even if a little expensive. It is clean and correct, rooms are dorm-style (as in many Edda hotels) and breakfast is ok. Free wifi at the lounge, but no computers for the guests. As for food, take your car and go... More

Stopped for one night at Edda near Höfn during a trip in the South of Iceland. The location is pretty good - right by the ring road but in a quiet area, and close enough to the small city of Höfn. Unfortunately the hotel itself was not as good, being closer in quality to a hostel than a hotel: the... More

Don't expect much - clean but characterless rooms in this motel are basic. 2 single beds in a double room can be pushed together, a desk, tiny sink, wardrobe and shared toilets and showers. The welcome is friendly and the hotel is in good working order with a lounge for all guests downstairs, but as with a lot of places... More

There wasn't a whole lot of difference between this hotel and many of the other hotels/guesthouses that I stayed at in Iceland. There were one or two main distinctions, though. The hotel is further outside of Hofn, so if you want to visit the town, expect about a 5-10 minute drive. It is convenient for a place to stay right... More

Lo primero que me desagradó fue el aspecto exterior del edificio,aunque no es lo más importante de un hotel. Está a 8kms del pueblo de Höfn lo que hace totalmente necesario un coche. No tienen WIFI gratuito, nosotros conseguimos las clave ya que otro cliente estaba indignado ya que después de pagar el WIFI no tenía buena señal desde la... More
