The hotel is conveniently located: just a couple yards from the Ring Road 1, almost next to a supermarket, gas station, restaurant and the nice thermal swimming pool. Rooms are proper and clean with everything we needed. The rooms have very thick walls, that keeps some noise outside but also the wi-fi connection. That was not a problem for us... More

This hotel is now under new ownership and has been renamed the hotel Hella. The new owners are very friendly and the rooms are very comfortable. They could not do enough for the school group during our four night stay. They provided excellent home cooked food in the evenings super breakfasts and great packed lunches. They were a mine of...

The hospitality was astounding. After being caught hiking in a storm, we caught a bus and stumbled into Mosfell asking for a room. The front desk clerk graciously upgraded us to a room with a private washroom with a shower after seeing our discomfort in our cold, wet clothes. We had lost our luggage and the clerk did everything he... More

We stayed there for one night before taking the bus to Landmannalaugar to do the 4 days hike. The hotel is clean and staff is friendly and helpful. It's true that the furnitures are not modern ikea style and everything is a bit old fashioned but we found it quite funny and did not care much as long as this... More

Paper thin walls (1950's panelling) in 2.5m / 8' wide rooms (I could almost touch both walls) and the previously mentioned shared bathrooms which are inadequate for the number of rooms, make this a very poor choice. On hot days the rooms overheat quickly - I assume because there is little or no insulation!? Outdated & definitely Not Recommended.

I think the best thing about this place was the service. The girl at the front desk was really nice and helpful. The room was just decent, because it was very small and had no TV or bathroom, but I guess they probably have better rooms available. They also had free breakfast, Internet, and free chocolates at the front desk.

We have been to this hotel both this year and three years ago, so we saw both interior faces. The old part is classic Icelandic. Small rooms for two, shared facilities, dark interior - simple and clean. The new part with the family rooms is much lighter and has in-room facilities. As for the service, you have to remember that... More
