FH Hekla is a short distance off Iceland's Ring Road on Route 30 and 20km from Flúðir. It is a great location for accessing the Golden Circle of "must-see" sights without joining traffic queues from Reykjavik. The hotel is in the countryside and we had a wonderful showing of the aurora borealis on one of the nights we stayed. The hotel is relaxed and informal, with a comfortable bar and good breakfast. The evening menu is small but the dishes were excellent. We had suites, which comprised large bedrooms, a large sitting room with sofa and TV, and a good size bathroom. Fixtures and fittings were not fancy, but functional. Staff were really helpful, from advice of seeing the Aurora to clearing up split milk!

This hotel is much more down-to-earth than other hotels but even though there were areas for improvement, it was my favourite. The staff were ABSOLUTELY friendly and accommodating, the hot tub was comfortable, the steam room easy to use. The breakfast was very tasty. The male changing room for the hot tub was closed but I believe that is because we were travelling in the off season. All the other guests and myself were happy to share the female changing rooms.

Had a great one night stay on a bus tour. The hotels a little older but the rooms were clean and the staff were outstanding. The dinner was outstanding. My second best lamb I had while in Iceland. Small hotel and I liked that. The bar area was small but that added to the charm. Would stay again

Although the hotel is in need for a refresh, the sympatic personnel made our stay very pleasant. Located in a very quiet location, you won't have any issue with sleep. A very decent restaurant is part of the complex - which is a good thing since other options are pretty remote in this area. Very clean.

Our experience was fantastic. The location is perfect to visit the Golden Circle. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed the hot tube looking at the Hekla volcano. We strongly recommend this hotel

The hotel offers clean, somewhat comfortable rooms but overall the rooms are average and we would have expected more for the cost. good location for our itinerary. Friendly, helpful staff. Overall I'd consider this a three star hotel.

We spent one night here after a long day of travel arriving in Iceland and sightseeing on the Golden Circle. The hotel is located in the country 25 minutes north of Selfoss. The interior was a bit dated with some carpet that needs to be replaced. But this hotel has 2 nice hot tubs and a sauna. We ate dinner and breakfast here as we were tired and far from town. Both meals were excellent. Our dinner had perfected cooked Cod. There were many delicious choices at breakfast. Service was excellent at the front desk and the restaurant. Our room was ample and comfortable and quiet.

Very basic hotel. Bathroom was quite dated. Beds and pillows were comfortable and it was very quiet in our room. Employee who checked us in did not tell us it would have been easier to drive our car around to the entrance nearest to our room so we drug our suitcases a long way over quite a few small staircases. It was acceptable for one night but would not stay again.

Fungus in bathroom and on window frames. This is unhealthy. Investment in maintenance of the hotel is necessary. Clearly no(t enough) attention for painting and cleaning the rooms and bathrooms by management.
