We stayed in one of the small cabins near the river. It was quite cozy for four of us with our backpacks, but it was really all we needed. The sink in the cabin was handy and the bath house was just a short walk away. The bunk beds gave the place a nostalgic feel, like we were all back... More

This is a campground mixed with cottages in a single place. The cottages are over priced. The common areas are quite dirty and not cleaned for ages. The shared kitchen gets ransacked in high seasons by campers. The check-in process was horrible and about 5-6 groups were waiting for a couple of hours while the office was closed with no... More

very nice spot on the river. very lively place near the campsite. Fairly comfortable cabin. Very good base to many day trips. The caffe became an expensive restaurant. We found a more popular place nearby

We had a great time! Please be aware that it opens 12 not 11 😀 friendly staff, great pizza and wonderful view. Lunch was good and the price was reasonable for Iceland. I recommend sitting outside. Also... The owner speaks perfect English - Roll Tide 😉

If you arrive expecting a hotel because you found it on Booking.com, you'll be disappointed. If you come expecting camping, but in a small cottage, you'll be happy. Arhus is suited to those travelling around Iceland with a sleep sack, towels and groceries in their backpacks -- those who are hostelling or camping and cooking their dinners. We were in... More

We stayed there 3 of us, one 8 years old, for one night. It was a pleasant surprise. The cottage was very clean, with kitchenette and shower even though it was not very big. The only thing that i can say negative about it is the mattresses, they are too hard almost like sleeping on the floor! Beautiful lake and... More

We stayed in the campsite of Arhus Hella, and it was a really nice stay. The place is well maintained and organized, set in beautiful countryside. We took a long evening walk along the river and enjoyed the view on volcanoes in the distance as well as serene landscape. For all the campers there is a clean, warm bathroom and... More

This was our final accommodation in Iceland before returning to Reykjavik, having spent 2 weeks touring Iceland. It was reasonably priced. We enjoyed the quiet cabin and a chance to unwind. A problem was that we did not have enough cooking pots to prepare our meal on the two ring stove. I raised this with the receptionist. She advised that... More

This was the first accomondation in iceland, ans we drove straight from the airport to hella. The cottage was actually one of the newest ( there were also the oldies, i think the cheaper ones). I slept very well there and loved to do some yoga at the morning in the riverside. Only minus id say, would be the fact... More
