We had a comfortable warm night's stay in this quaint, old-fashioned hotel. Decent continental breakfast, good service. Room was very spacious for three. Next to a bank and supermarket and petrol station.

This rating is based on Icelandic standards and not North American standards. Its my opinion that North American standards are a notch higher that Icelandic. Price: $260 Canadian per night for a superior room (North American standard) Room: Very clean, Hydronic baseboard heat, towel heater, shower no bath, shower is part of the bathroom floor so water does spray around...

The hotel is situated in a really good location if you want to do the Golden Circle or the south of Iceland. It is clean and cozy and the staff working there is also nice.I loved the livingroom where you can just relax with a cup of tea.

Your basic kind of motel type of a place. Just off route 1 next to a gas station and grocery store. Staff were really nice and friendly. Room was clean and basic. Quiet. Bed was a bit too soft.

It was clean an a good place to spend the night while doing the Iceland ring road. Very well located. Breakfast was just amazing. Internet access just terrible. Staff was friendly. No elevator to reach the top floor. I can recommend it for sure.

There is not much to do in Hella, but it's close to some nice places to visit in South Iceland. The hotel itself is good enough for a one night stay for a fair price. If you are not coming for the hotels to Iceland (which I hope), than this hotel is a good choice to stay and plan your... More
