10/10 Exceptional

We stayed three nights here and it was great! I was a little hesitant given it wasn’t a full time hotel but I would absolutely recommend. Room was large and comfortable. Breakfast buffet was very good. We love Icelandic skyr and they had excellent skyr there! Make sure you go to the botanical gardens next door is you have time - they are amazing. Akureyri is a wonderful place to visit.

If you looking for basic accommodations, Hotel Edda is a good choice. Location is great. Parking is free. Sharing a bathroom isn't too bad; however, the walls are thin and noise travels quite easily.

Excellent value
Excellent value for money with an attentive reception open 24 hours for any issues. Toiletries and a kettle provided in room. Room was very clean with comfortable beds and a good shower. TV would not work but strong signal for fast wifi. Nice atmosphere with the patient young staff and makes it more positive with all the demanding tourists.

The hotel was very nice, and conveniently located a short walk from the main street in Akureyri. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The hotel is also right next to the botanical garden.

8/10 Very good

A college dormitory style, building with a guesthouse-ish feel. Shared bathrooms on every floor. The property and bathrooms were clean and the bathrooms themselves were really nice. Rooms are small but clean and beds were comfortable. No kitchen to cook in, but there’s a decent restaurant on site as well snacks available. It is a great place for a cheap short term stay in the city. 5-10 minute walk from downtown Akureyri.
