“Excellent appartment hotel”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

Fosstun is an apartment hotel on the main road of Selfoss. It is a nice place to get ready for trekking the Laugarvegur trail. The larger than average rooms offer lots of space. There is even a sitting room. The kitchen is very well equipped all the way from pots and pans to liquid soap. The toilets are very clean and you get fresh towels every day. The water is always hot. But the best thing is the service – the staff is friendly and very informative. All in all, a great place for a short or long stay.

Room Tip: The room on the ground floor are bigger

We stayed for three nights in the Fosstun Apartment Hotel and were very satisfied with it. The rooms are very spacious and all include a dining and sitting area and small kitchen. The twin beds can be separate or pushed together to form a king. Breakfast was provided in a basket in the fridge each day; simple but good. The family who run the hotel are delightful and were happy to help with any questions and recommendations about the area. It is quite centrally located for day trips to the many attractions in the south of Iceland, and is a quiet and comfortable place to sleep at night. There are not a lot of restaurant choices in Fosstun, but there is a large supermarket within walking distance of the hotel if you care to make a meal in your apartment kitchen. We were very happy to spend three nights here, and would do so again.

The Fosstun staff welcomed us very kind and showed us our appartment. It was basical and functional but very clean. The breakfast was served in our fridge, do it yourself. In the evening we went around having a look at selfoss, but did not like what we see there. Only the cemetery was peaceful and nice, the rest of the town we did not like. The next day we went eastside to the vestmannaeyar island.

The rooms are designed like a youth hostel and we did not really like the city of selfoss. The night and sleeping quality was good, the breakfast was okay. You get your own basket at the room and have a breakfast in the room. The bathroom was not completely clean but okay. The price was okay. There is nothing really to see in Selfoss so I recommend to stay in another city around.

I would describe this place as a simple motel, with very simple, though spacious, rooms. The place was very clean and comfortable. As a place to spend a night on the way to the next spot ib Iceland it's really okay. Breakfast was very poor. All in all it's a good value for money.

We booked a family room but were given 2 double rooms for the price of one which worked out fine. There was no down side to the Fosstun Apartments Hotel, easy parking, immaculately clean rooms with full well-equipped kitchens. Limited TV - which didn't really matter to us, strong wireless internet service. A breakfast basket was placed in the refrigerator each day. We spent 2 nights but given the central location of the Selfoss area we could easily have spent a few more days. The are no laundromats in town but we were allowed the use of the hotels machines for a small fee. If we were to return to Selfoss we would be happy to stay at this location again.
