Everyone should stay there for breakfast itself. Amazing - herrings, homemade bread, jams and pastries. The rooms and facilities don't disappoint,.place is very clean. Service very friendly. Good value for money. Highly recommended!

We had a lovely stay at Guesthouse Bitra. The guesthouse is primely located on highway 1, which is perfectly located for South-West Iceland's activities. From there, you can drive east to the various waterfalls and glaciers or drive west to geothermal activities and hiking in Hveragerdi or a bit further to Rekjavik. The guesthouse itself is lovely and you will... More

We stayed here on the second week of September which would be considered off season. There was only one other guest. This a great place to stay if you are driving the Ring road. It's near Selfoss but otherwise completely isolated. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. There are 2 shared bathrooms which are well maintained. As the other... More

The guesthouse is situated 13 kilometers east of Selfoss, just by the Ring Road. If you have a car, it's a good base to spend a couple of day exploring the area known as the Golden Triangle before continuing further east. Without a car... well, there's practically nothing in the near vicinity of the guesthouse. The staff was really friendly... More

We only stayed for 1 night and for that it was a good experience. Modern, clean, simple and small rooms. Beds were very comfortable and it was peacefull; we had a good night sleep. The room included breakfast which was normal basic guesthouse breakfast. Very friendly staff.

Pros: convenient location near the #1 road, decent breakfast, friendly manager, simple but tasteful room design (if you're generally ready to accept 100 Euro per night price for a room with shared bathroom). The most significant problem of this place is the owner. Unfortunately, this lady had never been told that her role is not to make guests obey the... More

My husband and I had a great experience when we stayed at the charming Bitra Guesthouse. Our stay was for only one night, and the owners were very accommodating for all of it. Our room was clean and the house itself was very nice. The thick black out curtains and comfy bed was a definite plus. Breakfast was out the... More

This hotel in near Selfoss was formerly a prison and you can definitely tell if you stay here. We stayed here for one night in October 2013 and got one of the rooms at the bottom level. Room was very spacious with a nice large window. Bathroom was very basic and shower had drainage issues. Breakfast was ok. The owners... More
