4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My husband, friend and I got a ensuite room for 3 in this modern hotel only a short walk to the city centre. The room was spacious and the beds were very comfortable, which was a nice change of pace from many other places we stayed while in Iceland. Given Iceland is fairly expensive, we found Edda to be great... More

This hotel is fairly expensive for what you get. The rooms have a bath at the end of the hall and the rooms are like a dormitory. I believe we paid around $108/ night. The front desk staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. Breakfast is not included. The hotel is quite a long walk up a hill from the city... More

We enjoyed the Hotel Edda. The location was great; close enough to walk to the main areas of Akureyri, but far enough to be quiet at night. The lobby was gorgeous and the staff is very helpful. There's also a very cool lounge, with a piano, tv, board games, and pool tables. They've recently built a new wing, and from... More

Nice cheerful decor and colours present. The bathrooms are shared in each wing, and showers and toilets are in the same area. Shampoo is provided, but body wash is not. Located centrally, walkable distance to downtown.

Not cheap but not expensive by Icelandic standards, either. Clean and spacious room, we were staying 2 nights on a friend's recommendation but one night is enough for the town. Room was given looking to the car park but as we were staying 2 nights I asked for a Fjord view and (eventually) got it. Perfectly good, clean, comfortable room.... More

Had one night here. As noted earlier, this IS Iceland so prices are....HIGH! Our room was good size, 2 beds, desk, sink and the bathroom and shower down the hall was fine. Lots of tour buses in the parking lot.

Terrific hotel with good value for rooms without bath. Steep walk up the hill from the center of town. Near excellent city pool and wonderful botanical gardens. Breakfast buffet was very good. Staff was very helpful. Hotel had lots of large tour groups.

We stayed in the new wing and the rooms were huge. Rooms had a small tv, desks and small kitchen area with sink, microwave and refrigerator. There were some basic kitchen items as well. Bathrooms were good sized but did not include a hair dryer. I asked at the front desk and they were happy to give me one. Hotel... More
