The hotel is located in a former school building which entails certain limitations. The rooms are small but clean , bathrooms and toilets in the hallway in the room is only a washbasin . If you are traveling with a backpack hostel would be a much better place - at the hotel the lack of a shared kitchen. A definite... More

Hotel Edda Skogar is a no frills, basic accommodation, but in Iceland, where travel, food, & accommodation can be pricey, this type of lodging makes perfect sense. I have always thought that there should be a line of hostels for "mature" travellers, with great beds, simple, but clean and well-arranged rooms, shared bathrooms (immaculately clean) & the opportunity to buy...

Well, Iceland is anyway the country where you will not spend too much time inside, so... We where quite happy with this hotel... It was clean, a little bit old fashioned, nothing very stylish, but nice and friendly. A good place to come after the whole day of crazy outdoor activities. Breakfast was normal, coffee was really good and we... More

Hotel Edda Skogar was a lovely place to stay, and conveniently located, as we ended our long day with a visit and hike at Skogafoss. The stay was interesting, as the hotel was once a high school, and so each room is a former student dorm and still structured as such. The showers are communal, but I didn't mind. The... More

As other reviewers stated this is a fairly bare-bones establishment (i.e. no frills rooms with shared bathrooms and showers, wi-fi signal limited to the lobby). However, the room we stayed in was spotless, the bed was comfortable, and the location could not be beat for the hike we had planned. We had brought along some freeze-dried meals to avoid burning...

Really liked this hotel. We opted for the sleeping-bag accommodation in the gym. We were alone so I can safely say it is by far the biggest hotel room I've every stayed in! Showers were spotless and hot. Good mattresses provided and slept very well. Basic but excellent for that category. The huge bonus was that the price included breakfast... More

I remember this hotel primarily as a culinary experience. The buffet is worth the admission alone, both evening and morning buffet. The room was spacious enough for me and my two young kids. The staff added a third bed, a mattress, to my double bedroom without charging anything extra (I had my own linen and sleeping bag for that extra... More

You have next to zero options to stay in this area. We enjoyed the dinner and the the accommodations were adequate. Everything was clean, quiet, and exactly what we expected. The highlight of the show is down the street: Skogafoss! This was one of our favorite Iceland experiences and should not be missed!

This was our first "Edda" experience. The room was quite small (for us, one large bed) with a bit of storage and a sink...but barely enough room to move around. The 2 toilets and 2 showers that were on our floor were just outside our room, which was nice. We had no problems with toilet/shower availability, but it felt like... More

We finished our trek a day early & the hostel where we had a booking the next day was full. Luckily I was told about this by another traveller before we put our tents up in a freezing monsoon. You have to ask at reception for sleeping bag accommodation or you are given a room at 16000 IKR (I met... More
