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

Nice cosy B&B just outside Selfoss: around 10 minutes drive. Very friendly owners combined with a perfect breakfast with lots of Homemade stuff. Beds and sheets were comfortable although our shower was a bit poor. Nevertheless recommended stay in this area!

Have you ever spent a night in a jail cell? In Bitra, a small farm just out of Selfoss, Iceland, you get a chance to do just that. The place was built to be a women's prison, but was never used. It was for a short while a juvenile prison, but 2 years ago it was turned into a B&B... More

We had a great stay at this bed and breakfast. It was a cold and miserable night so it was nice to come in to a warm and inviting room. Rooms were clean - and owners were friendly! They even recommended a great restaurant for my husbands birthday! Breakfast was plenty and tastes in the morning. Only thing to note... More
