Room was very warm/hot and we got very little sleep due to the temperature. The window can barely open and provided localized cooling just to the window area floor. Rest of the room remained too hot. As others said the road noise is very present especially if you need to keep the window open. The shower head was very low pressure. Basically water dripping out. But the hand wand washer was powerful so that had to be used for getting soap out.

Hotel's Favourite
We ended up staying for 3 nights and enjoyed our time in the area. The reception was very friendly and always available to help out. The hotel is in a nice area, easy to walk to nearby restaurants and bars. We did the Golden Circle day from here as well as a trip to the Lava Museum in Hella and Secret Lagoon so the location is very central for things on the southwestern corner of the island. The bed was also one of the most comfortable we stayed in on the trip and the shower was quite spacious! Breakfast was tasty, nothing too fancy but good selection and delicious espresso machine.

A slight above average hotel along the way from Golden Circle to Vik, good for a night stopover. This is one of the best hotels in the Selfoss town which is a right place for a night stay as the town has a few supermarkets (Kronan, Netto) and there are good restaurants as well. So, location of the hotel is perfect. The room was clean and bed was comfortable. There is a Nespresso coffee machine provided in my room, a nice offer. Anyway, the room was basic and rain shower in the bathroom lacks power/pressure. My room (room 314) was facing the main road, the noise from cars passing by was distracting when we need to keep our window to have a small gap to allow fresh air circulation in the room (no air conditioning during early summer). Breakfast was simple and decent, good enough before we start our day driving to the next destination.

Absolutely amazing our stay at this hotel. After 2 rough nights in others hotels this was a cherry on the top. It was my husband and I anniversary so we decided to booked this hotel to chill and enjoy our time. Staff were nice at the lobby, hotel comes with free parking, lobby was very nice and stylish, room were spacious and super modern, free buffet style breakfast A+++ and for 30 dollars extra you could use the sauna, steam and massage facility. Hotel its in downtown selfoss so everything was nearby and it's such a cute little town. I definitely recommend this hotel worth the extra money.

The room is very good, and the bathroom very spacious, with great shower. The breakfast is also excellent, and the location is the best. The front desk is very helpful, and cleaning is perfect. Great hotel for a fair price. Would return for sure.

Stayed one night here after arrival on Iceland. Rooms convenient, shower ok, breakfast English style and ok. Due to late arrival (hotel is almost 100 km from the international airport) and early departure only saw the hotel and not the city.

Hotel South Coast is well located in Selfoss close to eateries and bars (we particularly enjoyed the Old Dairy down the road). There was parking available behind the hotel and on the street out the front. The hotel has a small gym which is good for a basic workout. The room itself was comfortable and clean, however we would have liked a kettle in the room as well as the coffee machine. Breakfast was described as continental but did have some hot food on offer too, and the breakfast staff were helpful and gave us some advice for the rest of our trip.

Hotel Sout Coast is a nice stay in the center of Selfoss. Everything is in walking distance (ok, not to hard in Selfoss :-) ). Room was nice, facing the parking side (which is better because of the quite busy road facing the front side. Staff was kind. Decor of the rooms and the hotel modern and clean. Breakfast buffet nothing special, but with all you can expect when travelling in Iceland. Very good price / value for Iceland.
