“Just might be the most beautiful spot on earth”
Reviewed November 11, 2011

Stayed in one of the cabins next to the main building. The fact is that I would have been happy with a sleeping bag and pillow at this location. The cabin was perfect for what we wanted. I was able to open my door in the early morning to the most beautiful sounds and sights on earth. The cabin has all you need if your goal is enjoy the environment and surroundings. Would stay here again in a minute. (note: actually stayed here a few years ago in July, but the travel date box didn't provide an option to select an earlier date)

My wife and I stayed here this past October in the "summer cottages" and enjoyed our stay. The cottages were simple, but nice and clean. The only downside to them is that you can hear pretty plainly through the walls if someone is staying in the other half (the cottages are duplexes). Luckily the people staying next to us were very quiet so it wasn't a problem.

The hotel staff were all extremely friendly and most spoke very good English. The breakfast was pretty standard fare for the hotels in Iceland. Different types of breads, cheeses, meats, and vegatibles as well as cereals.

I don't remember exactly what it cost, but it was quite a bit cheaper than the Hotel Lundi which is why we stayed there.

Room Tip: Check out the gas station across the street for some good food and to mingle with the locals.

We were booked into this hotel as part of a fly drive package. A bit like a real budget chain hotel in UK or France. There was a basic but good restaurant within walking distance.

Room Tip: Fronte better for views but noisier

I stayed there 1 night with my girfriend in August. We had one of the little cottage near the actual hotel.

The room was clean and charming. It wasjust what we wanted after a long day of hikes. They also offfered a discount for the restaurant at the service station on the other side of the street.

The main problem was the noise. Our neighbours came back to their room very late (1am, after what seemed to be a long expedition), and you could clearly hear them talk, hear (and feel) their footsteps and basically anything they did. An hour later they went to sleep and it was calm again. Good thin nobody was snoring else it would have been a nightmare.

Very good breakfast in the morning (but not included in the price).

Overall I'd say it was satisfaying mostly because there is nothing else available nearby.

Stayed August 2011, traveled as a couple

We stayed in the main building. The rooms are tiny but clean. The building resembles a dormitory and sounds about the same, with noisy families and tourists coming and going at all hours with very thin walls. Also, they do not permit smoking within, so groups tend to congregate outside of the main entrance and outside the rooms to smoke. We had to keep our windows closed the entire time to avoid the smell. The location is great, and Vik is a charming little town with a grocery, a few places to eat and a good community pool.

They dry their bed linens outside on a line, so they smell really good.

Of all the EDDA Hotels where we stayed during our trip to Iceland this one had the smallest room and bathroom , but it was clean and quiet. There are also chalet-style rooms, which we have not seen. Breakfast very good as always in Edda. There is no restaurant in the hotel, but a really good one just across the street - big portions and excellent service for reasonable prices.
