Loved this hotel, made me wish I had checked out the Edda chain elsewhere in Iceland. I had a private room / bathroom, and it was very modern and clean. The bed is very comfortable, and the curtains do a pretty good job blocking the overnight light, so was a good sleep. One small knock is that the wifi is... More

We stayed for a night at this hotel with shared bathroom. We should have selected a private bathroom instead. No wifi in the room only in the lobby area, which was inconvenient. Room size is ok. Hotel located in a short drive distance from the downtown area.

Great room with really comfortable bed. Everything very clean. Excellent location and a good breakfast. Some noisy plumbing disturbed our sleep, and there is no wifi in the rooms. Wifi in the lobby not always great either. Also the kitchen area is a bit chaotic. We were told we could get tea & coffee in the dining area anytime but... More

This is only a hotel in the summer months when it's not being used as student accommodation. So you have to judge it by those standards. Having said that, the room was clean and comfortable with a small bathroom. It's sparsely furnished but the beds are comfortable and we slept well. So if you don't want the trappings of a... More

It's a typical three star hotel and by Icelandic standards provides enough value for the 140 euro spent for a night in a room with a private bathroom. The room was very clean, the two things that I would improve: 1. put a kettle in the room (something that you always expect in Iceland) 2. provide a real double bed,... More

This is a boarding school used as a hotel in the summer. Not an uncommon thing in Iceland as we discovered. Still, it was perfect for our needs. The rooms was clean and the front desk receptionist was polite and helpful. They even had a hair dryer for my wife. If you're just looking for a place to sleep after... More

This hotel feels dated from the moment you set food in it. Your first contact with this hotel is carrying your suitcases up some stairs at the entrance. Why nobody thought of installing a ramp is unclear to me. The whole building looks like it got stuck in the seventies. With long, unwelcoming halls and very basic rooms (no decoration... More

Typical school hostel summer hotel. We booked a private room and got an apartment so had heaps of room to sort all our gear after a week in Hornstradir. Breakfast was varied and ample typical Iceland style. Twin beds were comfy.

We were happy to find accommodation in Isafjordur for a budget price however, we expected it to be a bit better. The hotel is clean, but all the floors are concrete which makes any noise from other guests echo throughout the floor and during our stay, we had very noisy neighbors. Additionally, the doors to the individual rooms have a... More

Hotel Edda is a school during fall and winter and a hostel/hotel during summer. I stayed in "sleeping bag dorm room" (a classroom with whiteboard now with 7 single beds). The bathrooms are school type bathrooms. There is also a lawn for tents and private rooms as well. What is outstanding is the cordial desk staff who are extremely knowledgeable... More
