On arriving your heart sinks at the faded appearance of the hotel ,on the inside whilst the décor is also faded the welcome you get from Thora the manager is certainly not . She is a one woman whirlwind who gives the hotel soul and appears to do literally everything . Just outstanding customer service . She made our 3...

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....

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 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...

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.
