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

Just returned from Iceland and we spent one night here and the rooms were clean and so were the shared bathrooms. This is a no fills hotel and the rooms are plain but the beds are soft and we had a great night sleeps. The only thing I heard were the sheep in the morning!! so even though there are... More

This hotel is a good no frills option if you want a beautiful location, are travelling the south coast and are on a budget. The rooms are clean, functional and light. We found the staff to be welcoming and helpful. Yes, bathrooms are shared but so what? There was never anyone in the toilets or showers when we used them... More

Definitely the best breakfast we had in Iceland - rich, fresh and healthy, with a large variety of food items including organic and gluten-free options. The hotel looks somewhat harsh, even "soviet" from the outside, but is cosy enough on the inside. We actually stayed in the smaller building attached to it on the right, with shared showers and toilets.... More

Was disappointed with the room. Booked a hotel room with a double bed, but got a dorm room with twin beds. Not cozy at all. Works as a place to crash but I would have preferred to stay in a tent in the beautiful camping site next door, just by the waterfall Skogafoss.

Rooms a little bit small and "old style", but very clean and nice service. Not the best Edda we practice this 2 weeks'trip in Iceland, but general impression is good. Dinner : only a buffet....a little bit expensive, and no other choise.

We stayed in seven different guesthouses all around Iceland and Hotel Edda Skogar was the only one that completely disappointed us. It started from the moment we checked-in, as I referred to the accommodations as a “Guesthouse” and the young woman gave me a strange look and drily said “It’s a hotel”. Shared bathrooms and showers down the hall do... More

If you are a budget traveller this is not a good option. If you are a service comfort traveller this is also not a good option. Let me explain. Iceland is expensive at least for American travelers. We decided to stay in youth hostels because it was a more affordable option, we could prepare our own meals and we had... More
