We received a spacious room on the 4th floor with a very nice view over the river. We arrived at the hotel late, and stayed for one night only while touring Iceland. The rooms had comfortable beds, basic bathroom, and a sitting area. The hot water smelled of sulfur which is common to the area. We were traveling with a... More

Stayed at the Selfoss for one night whilst on tour of Iceland. The rooms are clean and large and some with a view over the Selfoss which is good. They have a comfortable bar and service was polite and efficient, breakfast was varied and plentiful.

Hotel is well located in a fairly nondescript Iceland town. Nice views from some of the rooms and restaurant. We found it VERY loud, and could hear people coming and going at all hours. Water add a foul smell, which is not uncommon for Iceland hotels. Was serviceable for a night for our family of four, would not have wanted... More

This is a lovely hotel overlooking the river. My room turned out to be a suite with very nice amenities. The food was very good and I would recommend this hotel. It is in a central area to get to all the important South Iceland things to see and do.

We spent one night at the Hotel Selfoss. We had a very spacious room on the 2nd floor that had great views of the Ölfusá River. It included a mini-frig as well as a kettle for making coffee/tea and the coffee/tea was provided. A buffet breakfast as well as free internet access was included in our rate. The buffet breakfast...

Very friendly and helpful staff. The hot water has a sulfurous odor. Breakfast buffet so-so, over-brewed, bitter coffee. The hotel is right in the center of Selfoss, but this town is pretty sparse and stretched out, hard to get anywhere by walking. One exception is the restaurant Tryggvaskali, right across the street from the hotel. Don't miss it. For chess... More

Clean facility and good service, but the mattress is thin and not comfy. Breakfast was average, with no frills. Shower was good, but the towels are a little thin. Rooms were quiet and wifi was good. Not sure if there are many other options in this area.

This hotel was our base for daytrips around the south Iceland area. The room was comfortable and the hotel provided washcloths. Since it was close to the highway, there was some road noise. Our room had 3 curtains that kept out the light. However, the thickest curtain did was not wide enough to cover the complete length, so light came... More

Big, clean room and bathroom. Great breakfast. Very congenial staff. The river view is a nice plus. The town is small but has a few restaurants that have decent food for a reasonable price (remember we are in Iceland).
