The room was very small and in need of updating. Bathroom was tiny. Bed comfortable enough and good heartng in the rooms. No tea/coffee facilities (you can buy tea/coffee in the lobby), no fridge, no TV. Parking directly in hotel carpark. Large reception area with seating. Compact restaurant. Paid $241A for one night, excluding breakfast. Staff were friendly. Hotel caters... More

No extra frills here but you won't need more than what is provided. The rooms are pretty basic but very comfortable. Beds are nice, washrooms are nice. The breakfast room was very comfortable and had a huge selection of breakfast foods to enjoy. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Overall our experience was OK at the hotel. The rooms were nice and clean.The odd thing is that the toilets are for like 2 meter tall people. You feel like a kid sitting in the toilet with your feet almost hanging in the air. The hotel does not offer free buffet breakfast and when paying I believe it was 1700... More

We were here for two nights as we toured round Iceland. The service was polite and straightforward although could have been much more friendly. I think they were used to dealing with tour reps and couldn't be bothered to engage much with us when we arrived, other than to pass us the piece of paper to sign to check in.... More

As soon as you enter Hotel Edda Hofn, you see how welcoming and relaxing it is. The view from the hotel is so nice. Actually all rooms have sea views but one side sees mostly the parking lot and the sea is behind the parking lot a little far away. However the rooms on the other side have very nice... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable. The view of the sea is gorgeous. There are several good restaurants within walking distance. The bathroom is small and functional. Compared to other places we have stayed at, this hotel was very acceptable for the middle price range in Iceland. There is nothing special to do in Hofn so just plan on an... More

When you drive on to the parking lots you can see the fassade crumbling. Which is the first time you start wondering if that can be the place you paid that much for. Interior is really nice, rooms are quite basic. Considering that all furniture is from Ikea and there's not even a TV in the rooms, prices are exorbitant.... More

Very basic (but expensive) hotel in Hofn, cold, kind of hospital room, with a nice view on the surrounding mountains. Unconfortable beds, no tv, no fridge. Probably you can find better in the small town of Hofn.

At breakfast, the same procedure as Edda Akureyri where guests, while eating, are watched carefully by staff members; this time even more inconvenient as one of "breakfast guardians" had the nerve to ask one of the clients if his sandwich was to eat or take out ... No words to described this behavior ... UNBELIEVABLE. Be also prepared to have... More
