We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Ideal location to explore the southern region of Iceland. Supermarket, petrol station are nearby. Cabin rooms are clean. The best thing in being in this quiet town is that there is less light hence chances to spot the northern light is higher. We spotted one magnificent aurora.

This was a nice quiet place to stay. Stayed 2 nights in a cabin next to the lake, and enjoyed it very much. The cabins are clean but basic. Great working heater for cold winter nights. Most likely a good place to see the Northern Lights IF you get good weather. The restaurant attached to the property is very good.

We stayed here for a night, they had everything you need for a short stay. Really warm and cosy, nice location and the restaurant was good and fairly priced too. Also recommend going to the Hella swimming pool, we started off the next day there at around 8am in the dark, it was a fun experience!

Arhus Hella was the perfect antidote to the cold and exhaustion! We landed in Iceland at 4:00 am and immediately started sightseeing, so by the time we checked into our cabin, we were wiped out. But the cabins instantly felt like home! They are warm, cozy, but with enough space and everything you need for a night or two. I...

Bunkbeds and feeling of kids camp. New, well maintained with an adequate kitchen and good if there are several people and some want to stay up and others sleep. Its adjacent to their restaurant and the information center but that part is closed after October 1. Tour buses stop here so I'd advise to eat early as it could be...

We had booked one night at Arhus Hella for our first-ever visit to Iceland, to allow us to visit some spots along the southern coast. The location was quite convenient, just off the ring road, with conveniences like grocery store, gas station, restaurants etc nearby, and if you have a rental car you can reach many interesting spots with ease...

The cottages located close to the riverside and have great privacy from others. The kitchen very small but equip with all need. The shower area not big enough. We were a group of 4 person and not enough spaces for keeping our baggage.

My husband and I had spent all day driving through the mountains and then found this campground to pitch at. Walked right in and got a spot, no problem. Unfortunately there was no Wifi, unlike the place we had gone to in Selfoss. I went to go use the portable toilets and they were trashed, completely. Feces everywhere! Went to...

This place is basic, but with cute cottages along the river and a self contained kitchen within them it was a great overnight stay. They offer breakfast down the road at the Hella Hotel but you have to let them know the night before, which worked out perfectly for me.
