“Good place to stay”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

This Edda Hotel is a great place to stay- good price, close to the thermal SPA, practicable close to dive Silfra. People very friendly, parking space available. Restaurants nearby- but expensive.
Extraordinary view at the lake and to the volcano scene.

This hotel is truly dreadful - it is the worst place I have ever had the misfortune to stay.

The hotel feels like a university halls of residence. The rooms don't have a carpet - just a red shiny lino. There is no phone or hair dryer in the room. The fixtures in the room are very spartan and broken. The view is grim. The staff are miserable. The breakfast feels like someone scoped up the budget line items from a supermarket. The dinner was a mess - long waits between courses and the desert was a kiddies meal of instant cream foam with crushed smarites (M&Ms) on the top.

In addition to the above the internet access is expensive and you can't even access it in your room - you have to go to the lobby to get a signal.

In summary the hotel needs to be demolished and rebuilt somewhere else, the staff would make good prison guards with their surly attitude and I should be spared torturous hotels like this in the future.

Dear, traveler

Thank you for your recent review of our hotel.
I am very sorry to see that you experienced our hotel in such a negative way. Regarding the staff, they are usually praised for good service so this comes as a surprise to me. Nevertheless I would like to thank you for stating your dissatisfaction with the service provided by our staff, I will make sure to forward your complaint to the general manager. Honestly I will have to say the same regarding our breakfast and the dinner; we often get compliments for it but seldom get complaints. Again however, I would like to thank you for stating your dissatisfaction.

I am not sure what you were expecting at Hotel Edda ML Laugarvatn but clearly it did not meet up with your expectations. It´s fair to say that Hotel Edda ML Laugarvatn is not a luxury hotel and if you are looking for some 4-5 star qualities I would recommend you to look elsewhere. That being said Hotel Edda ML Laugarvatn is the ideal hotel if you want to explore the fascinating nearby attractions, for example the Golden Circle or the geothermal steam baths found at Laugarvatn Fontana, only few meters away from the hotel. So for those adventurous travelers, Hotel Edda ML Laugarvatn is the right place to stay at but perhaps you were looking for something else entirely.

All in all I hope that you enjoyed your trip here in Iceland despite the fact that Hotel Edda ML was not the right hotel for you.

Warm regards,
Trausti Karlsson

We stayed in the EDDA ML during our self-organizes round trip through Iceland. For Iceland this Hotel was a very good value. Of course, there is not much around in Laugarvartn, but hey it's Iceland... Rooms were pretty big with new furniture and clean. Bathrooms are shared facilities in each floor. Breakfast was fine as well.

Some sightseeing spots like Thingvellir National Park, Geysir and Gulfoss are just 20 to 30 minutes by car.

The only bad point: Do not expect double beds, you will find two individual beds at both sides of the room with roughly 4 Meters in between.

This hotel is part of the well known Edda Hotel chain who everyone has been in Iceland knows as the one that use the schools closed in summer period as accomodations for tourist.
Laugarvatn is 15 minutes car ride from the famous attractions of Geysir and Gulfoss. Is a very small town and the hotel is located in the middle of very nice meadows in a peaceful area.
There is a main building with reception and restaurant and two others with the rooms.
Our room was a double adapted as a triple with a mattress on the ground, not the best but an option that you can accept with a child.
Rooms and common spaces are extremely clean, staff smiling and kind. We had just a small argument with a room maid because we found that she had put the sheets for the third "bed" on the hallway ground. We exposed our disappointment and she immediately excused. When we came back to the room after dinner we have found a nice slip of paper with other excuses. It was a small accident well solved.
We had also dinner there. There was a good choice of meals and I have to say that the quality was quite good. Some lacks in the fish (too much bechamel) and in lasagna (too dry) but the soup and the lamb were really excellent.
A very good surprise at breakfast: a huge choice of biscuits, marmalades, breads, yoghurt and cold dishes that you may als not expect in a simple hotel like that.
Of course the 4 points evaluation must be compared with the limited hotel offer in Iceland, but is an accomodation that I can absolutely suggest.
