As part of the winter student residence at Akureyri High School, this large hotel found near the centre of town offers 204 basic but comfortable rooms to summer travellers. Found in Iceland's second city and 'capital of the north' of Akureyri, it is a great base for touring the rugged northern coastline.

The area's attractions include the idyllic Lake Myvatn an hour by car, the Hrisey Island bird sanctuary a short ferry ride away, and the Kjarnaskogur and Vaglaskogur woodlands bringing visitors top salmon and trout fishing. Edda Akureyri's restaurant features both buffet and a la carte options, while the lobby has a small café with a terrace that can be enjoyed in the summer months. For those who would like to get their swimming trunks on, a swimming pool is found just next door to the hotel.

Both the standard rooms and larger deluxe rooms are comfortably fitted en suites and some include a TV.
