    The hotel manager was really friendly and welcoming. The rest of the staff was very polite too. The room was very clean and cosy. I definitely recommend staying there.

    This is a school dorm converted to a hotel for the summer. Black out curtains would have been great given Icelandic summer. No kettle or TV anything in the rooms.

    Price-quality ratio was rather weak, but correct for Icelandic conditions.

    The main reason to book this site has to do with its location, close to Fontana Spa and on the Golden Circle route. All was correct, but still the feeling is of a school dorm, which it still partly seems to be. Good for one night, though.

    Location, location, location. Walk to the Laugarvatn Fontana and a couple of nice places to eat from this Hotel Edda. Staff was at the front desk every time we passed by (not always the case in small towns). It's a boarding school dormitory during the school year, so no-frills decor. Sink in room; toilets and showers down the hall. Great breakfast.

    It is like an English YHA Youth Hostel but literally 10 times the price. Very poor facilities. Most Expensive meal we had in Iceland but nothing special and served in the School canteen. AVOID UNLESS YOU ARE LOOKING FOR EXPENSIVE BACK TO BASICS ACCOMODATION.

    It is not a hotel but is a Boarding School that rents out the kids rooms in the summer. Good location for long distance views and easy drive to activities and attractions.

    Not beinginformed that the property is a school in the advertisement, hence to expect a college dorm situation.

    Poor welcome and goodbye, not sympathetic at all. Not taking breakfast nor dinner might have had an impact. Poor wifi connection.

    We did not "enjoy" things properly : the place is purely practical as expected for an Edda. Clean, convenient, well located, quiet, no charm, no soul. Efficient and practical, is all.

    awful design, uncomfortable beds. It is a place that lacks all charm. It is a school during the winter and they make very little effort into changing it to something less like a boarding school dorm

    At best a place to sleep, but really not worth staying at. The location is good since it is at Laugarvatn but I would rather stay at other places there. Great food at Heradsskolinn restaurant, only a min walk

    The beds were extremely soft which it is very bad for back. The furniture was very old and used. Definitely it is not a "Hotel" and should be renamed as a hostel.
