There is only one reason you stay at a place like this: to use it as a base for exploring the southern Highlands. The rooms are small, basic, and clean, and wifi is free but available only in the common area. Breakfast is good. If you plan day trips to Landmannalaugar, Thjórsárdalur and areas nearby, Fosshótel Mosfell serves as an ideal base at a very reasonable price.

Pros:
- The bathrooms were clean and serviceable, although a blow dryer would have been nice.
- Breakfast was actually pretty good and included a small section of hot breakfast including pancakes and sausages.
- Free wifi in the lounge and dining areas.
- The staff were nice and helpful.

Cons:
- Beds are a thin layer of foam on a very flimsy box spring. This is perhaps tolerable if you sleep very easily or are only staying for one night
- The décor in the rooms is very dated and could certainly use updating. The room did have new looking laminate floors, so perhaps they are slowly remodelling?
- Hotel has no elevator, so if you are staying on the second floor, be prepared to drag your luggage up the stairs.
- The curtains do almost nothing to block out the late night sun.
- Hella is a very small town with very little to do and only one decent restaurant. Selfoss is relatively close by and offers many more options for accommodations, leisure and dining.

I am actually really conflicted about how to rate this hotel. For heavy sleepers on a tight budget this hotel would probably be perfectly fine.

However, I would not recommend this hotel if you can afford to spend a little bit more - especially if you are planning on staying for more than one night.

Room Tip: There is no elevator, so ask for a first floor room if you don't want to drag your luggage up stairs.

If you want to stay in a hotel that hasn't been refurbished with IKEA stuff yet and still breathes the 1970's....go to this place. Its comfortable, big, friendly staff and very quiet so you'll have a good sleep after your trip of the day. Only tip for the hotel would be to replace the too soft matresses but overal no complaints

A great hotel for exploring Southern Iceland and just off the Ringroad.
Spotless rooms and well equipped ..tourist class. This hotel reflects the standard of most hotels in Iceland..your going to see Iceland not the interior of your hotel!
No restaurant on site but a short walk away from Cafe Arhus which we can recomend. The hotel does offer breakfast onsite which was great.

Room Tip: Book as part of an "On the road" package via the Fosshotel website especially if travelling aroun the ring road...all Fosshotels are accessible from this and in great locations...You will also get the best value and best rooms and know you will allways get a friendly welcome!
