Our only (minor) complaints for this hotel were 1) don't try and be courteous and hold the glass elevator doors open with your hand to delay the doors closing - they close anyway - Hubby got a serious finger nip. 2) breakfast is not served until 7:00 (and a lot of it isn't set out until 7:15 or later) so there is a serious backlog as all the tour groups are trying to eat and leave as early as possible.
The hot water did have a sulphuric smell, but it was worse in other places we stayed, and didn't bother us much. Our room did not overlook the river (too bad, I guess those rooms had a lovely view) and on the two nights we stayed there was surprisingly noisy traffic/revelry on the street outside, considering Selfoss is not a very big place.
All in all, a fine place to be home base for touring this region. We had take-out pizza for dinner one night from the Dominos next door - relatively cheap by Icelandic standards, and very good too (they had an English menu, very helpful!_
