Welcome Guesthouse Edinborg

Recent guest reviews

The room we booked did not have a key in the lock box. There were two staff members on site that quickly put us in an upgraded cabin room that was recently remodeled. It was a nice bonus and much nicer than what we booked. Great stay overall, nice location if you are traveling along the southern coast

I reserved a room for two nights through Orbitz over a month in advance. I received an email a week before my arrival giving me my room number and the codes to get in to the front door and for the room key box. I arrived at the guesthouse around 1:00 p.m. I used the first code to get in the front door and then the second code to open the key box next to room 104. The box opened, but there was no key. I knocked on the door to 104 and a couple from Belgium was inside. They said they had booked the same room for two nights. A phone was at a desk at the entrance of the guesthouse with a number to call for help in checking in. I called over and over, but only got a message stating that they could not answer phone at that time to call back in a few minutes. Eventually, I gave up. The next day I called the number in the afternoon and a woman answered. She said she had my reservation and was not sure who was in my room. I asked for another room, but she said she would have to send someone to meet me at the guesthouse when I got there. I stopped our sightseeing to drive back to the guesthouse, but when I called, I only got the same answering machine. So, I never got in to my room!

A basic room and experience. In a good location when exploring the southern coast but not a place we wanted to linger in. Overall clean and comfortable.

There is no reception, rooms are small, corridor is noisy and you feel like everyone is in the room with you cause there is no isolation of noise. No breakfast included and the room prices are outrageous. The room wasn't that clean. Towel was old and torn. Dont stay here unless this is the last vacant hotel in Iceland. One star at most. Try sleeping some where else.

Welcome Edinborg was quiet, clean, comfortable, good value and easily accessible. Staff were friendly and helpful. A good breakfast was included, but on the second floor up a steep set of stairs. A bonus is the free swim in a thermal pool which is a short drive and some 20 minute walk away. Although the pool's best days are long gone, it is in a beautiful setting and worth a try. The room was a tight fit but provides a good sleep.

The location was very remote, which increased the possibility of being able to catch the northern lights. Very cozy lodging, sweet staff, clean enviroment, and perfect for travellers doing a self tour. This was our second time in Iceland and we wanted to get away from the city and this hotel made it possible. Very close location to Sulkgarfoss and Vik. Great Price!!

Hotel Edinborg has actually shut down, but I will write about the alternative down the road that our reservations took us to: Hotel Lambafell. Complete with a hot tub and in-room TV, Hotel Lambafell was an excellent alternative! My husband and I loved being surrounded by the Eyjafjöll Mountains. If the weather is nice, there is so much to explore in the area. We would stay here again.

Very pleasant stay. The view of the glacier cap from our room was just amazing. Perfect location if your looking to break up the drive out to Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. Almost right in between Reykjavik and the lagoon. With easy quick drives to many other acttractions along RT 1.
