Arriving at Hotel Hella is a depressing, "What have I done moment". It looks like a section of strip mall from a small American town that is down on its luck. Our experience didn't start to get better all that quickly, as there was no one about and we had to go for a little explore to find the owner.... More

The rooms are not large but clean with a shower etc. Service is excellent and done with a smile. I recommend you stop here on your drive around Iceland. There is a great heated swimming pool next door (2 min. walk) The staff will be glad to give directions to the sights and interesting places around Hella.

On the Iceland tour when I first booked, details showed this hotel as a possibility but clearly stated that could change. On receiving the final tickets, however, this hotel was still shown. There was miscommunication and instructions about room requirements I’d sent to the USA booking agents which, allegedly, were not received by the Reykjavik tour company. The accommodation in...

We just spent two nights at hotel Hella. There were three of us and there was plenty of room for baggage and to move around on our room. There was shelf room in the bathroom and by the window. There was free wifi that worked everywhere for in the hotel and television with English speaking stations. The breakfast was adequate... More

We had a "room" with shared facilities. The room was so small that it was unpleasant to even think about spending more than the absolute minimum time there. The hotel is gloomy, the breakfast with low quality food.

Having read just the bad reports on TA was worried about what we were facing so inspected the rooms before paying and was pleasantly surprised. So the majority of reports were much more accurate. The rooms were simple but clean and everything worked (plumbing, shower, fittings) and the free Wifi was ample to stream BBC radio. There were five of... More

By far the worst hotel experience we have ever had. We arrived to find reception deserted and had to search the hotel to find a man vacuuming so we could check in. We were given the key to our room but no information regarding breakfast etc. On entering our room we thought the decor dated but ok and it was... More

It was off season so the hotel was quite empty . No receptionist after we checked in ... Gone home ( dread to think what... More

My boyfriend and I did a driving tour of Iceland In March 2014 for my birthday. Due to bad weather we ended up staying at the hotel for two nights. However he and I both agreed this was the best place we stayed at during the whole 10 days of our trip! The service we received from the staff was... More
