Stopped for one night at Edda near Höfn during a trip in the South of Iceland.
The location is pretty good - right by the ring road but in a quiet area, and close enough to the small city of Höfn.
Unfortunately the hotel itself was not as good, being closer in quality to a hostel than a hotel: the rooms have only what is barely necessary (there were neither a tv nor a phone to call reception) and the decor is minimal to say the least (the neon lights were old and buzzed loudly, the light above the beds held circa 16 dead flies).
The walls are very thin: the half of us who didn't bring earplugs was up most of the night due to the loud snoring of the guest next door. The curtains were way too thin to be used during an Icelandic summer: I was woken up by the sun at 4 a.m. (it was strong enough I could read a book with the curtains pulled).
I wouldn't recommend this hotel unless the price was extremely convenient (we paid only 45€ for a night, and felt it would have been a robbery to ask more than that) and there was nothing else left. At some point I felt I should have moved to sleep in the car, at least it would have been quieter.More
