Hotel Edda - IKI Laugarvatn
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Laugarvatn
Reviewed 3 September 2011

This is the fifth night in Hotel Edda, so it is free. The room, services are all good.

Except the receptionist might misunderstand my words. We had to move all our luggage from one room to another room and later move back.

All in all, will still recommend.

Well located hotel to be in the middle of the Golden Circle attractions. Unpleasent smell of the soup of the day in the foyer (broccolli one night, mushroom the next), smell did not extend to the bedrooms and there were great views from the rooms overlooking the lake.Smell was so offputting that we ate out both nights (loved the Lindin bistro) but breakfast was tasty and good value in the mornings.
Local pool is 3 mins walk, nice and warm but a bit plain by Icelandic standards with no slides and just a few hotpots. New steam baths have opened by the lake, looked sophisticated but cost a lot more to enter and would not have entertained children.
Staff were all lovely, internet access in upstairs lounge, ask at reception for free code to activate computer

Room Tip: Lake-view is far superior to car-park. Triple room with lake-view was huge

We stayed in several Edda-hotels - this one was the best. Lovely position at the lake - good food, usual large Edda-breakfast. Ideal stay for one or two nights. Don't forget - if you stay
five nights in Edda-hotels (there are several all around Iceland) the third night you get one
breakfast for free and the fifth night is free ! When we stayed there there was no Internet-connection and we had to go to the other Edda-Hotel which is close by, but they promised that soon they will have their own connection.

This hotel is excellent for the money, Our room had its own bath which is rare for an Edda hotel and the service was excellent. They were kind and helpful and all with in our budget. I would recommend Edda for anyone looking for a budget hotel that still manages to be clean and give great service. Getting your 5th night free at any edda deal was great for us as well.

This hotel serves as a dorm for high-school students during the year. The rooms reflect that. They are clean, but do not have a television or phone. Nice location, though, and the dinner at their restaurant was quite good. I would have no problem staying there again.

I stayed in this Edda hotel for 1 night.
The building is really a school hostel during the winter and it becomes a summer hotel for tourists.
It's a good place,with all comforts ensuite,it's clean too! And my room had the view directly on the lake so it was a truely amazing.
very good breakfast .
Nice staff.

We booked this hotel at the end of our 3-week tour of Iceland.
The IKI is an Edda Hotel overlooking the lake Laugarvatn, which is about 100 km from Reykjavik.

Edda hotels are boarding schools turned into hotels in the summer period. IKI Laugarvatn was like all Edda hotels --> just OK but nothing sensational.
