We went on a group trip, so didn't have the luxury of choosing our own hotels.
Selfoss Hotel was by far the best hotel we stayed in, in Iceland.
Excellent location - fantastic view of the river (make sure you ask for a room with river view) - very comfortable room. Roomy, beds were comfy, there were luxury toiletries in the bathroom , and a bathtub! (a real rarity in Iceland).
Breakfast buffet was very very good.
Dinner was very good quality, but slow service (not buffet).
We don't see how you can go wrong with this hotel.
Relatively short drive from the airport, and a good base for touring.
A tip: there's a fantastic hot dog stand right outside the hotel, near the bridge.
