Icelandair Hotel Fludir

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

spent our second night in Iceland here (and our 2nd of 3 Icelandair hotels.) This place is modern, smells of fresh wood, open and warm. The rooms are lovely, with back doors that give on a yard. Comfy beds, rooms more spacious (than at Natura in Reykjavik.) Nice breakfast buffet but limited choices. Small, nice bar and as everywhere great staff.

Were stayibg at the Icelandair Hotel Fludir for one night only. Rooms 3-star-level and clean, personnel friendly and competent. Breakfast buffet simple, at approx $25 pp quite expensive as is the dinner which is kind of an investment... but: good quality 👍

OK, so the headline may have grabbed you ... but seriously this potentially was one dangerous hotel stay. Which is a shame because it was also one of the cutest places we visited. I loved the chalet-style pitched ceilings and the decor (even those interesting qwerky bed lamps). The good sized room had walk through robes and L'Occitane en Provence toiletries (standard in all Icelandair Hotels). The rooms are build around a pretty central courtyard which contains two open-air octagonal hot tubs (we nicknamed the hot tub time machines because they were so 80's) and a lovely decking, which would be nice in summer ... not so good in snowy winter when none of it is usable (unless you want to freeze your bits off getting in and out of the hot tub). The bathroom (connected to the walk through robes, and here's the danger ... wait for it) is tiled and has an external door into the central courtyard. There's a trip hazard (ridge) between the robes and the bathroom which would fail any Australian OH&S audit. And the bathroom tiles are also super slippery - we made the mistake of going out into the snowy courtyard to check it out, only to slide our way right across the bathroom floor, a la Tom Cruise in Risky Business, on re-entry. That we didn't fall and break something was a miracle. Oh and what's with the toilet placement in the bathroom (see photo)? The gap is super weird, but did anyone installing it realise that the position makes getting the toilet paper off the roll almost impossible? And shower curtains are so 80's too ... seriously, do you know how awful it is to have wet plastic cling to your body when you're trying to wash it? Glass doors people ... glass. So the bathrooms leave a bit to be desired and need a complete overhaul, that's clear. Sadly the beds are in a similar condition - far too soft to provide any real back support. And what gives with the thin towels common in Icelandicair Hotels - not only are they pretty terrible at drying anything, they just don't 'match' the lovely toiletries, leaving you with a less than stellar shower experience. Sadly we couldn't even get room service or eat in: the menu at the restaurant only had one soup (which is what you crave at the end of a long cold winters day) but hubby doesn't eat mushrooms. Where's the simple, heart warming, soul nurturing Icelandic Meat Soup like they do at Nestri cafe? I really wanted to give this place a massive rave ... it's got a lovely vibe which I really liked ... everything that is but the issues above. But if the bathrooms were renovated, the trip and slip hazards rectified, beds firmed up, fluffy towels offered, and a better menu of simple price-sensitive dishes on offer ... this place would be PERFECT!

I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Icelandair Hotel Fludir. Although I would consider it "pricy," it was well worth it and by far the nicest hotel that I stayed in for the duration of my Iceland trip.(We also saw the Northern Lights from the hot tub). Rooms/ jacuzzi space were well-kept and very clean, bed was comfortable, there is a television in the room. I would stay here again.

We are on a tour and this is where we are staying. The rooms are beautifully spacious and clean. They have 2 hot tubs directly behind the rooms. What fun we had in them. The food in the restaurant was first rate too. Stay here and you won't be disappointed.

This was a typical Icelandair hotel with quiet, clean, and comfortable rooms. Shower was on the smaller size. They served an average breakfast buffet. The hotel is a single story which was nice. Rooms have direct access to the outside thru a door in the bathroom.

Large rooms, comfortable. Bathrooms small, cramped shelf above the tiny sink. The shower was absurdly small, a square smaller than a phone booth. Difficult for an average-sized person to turn around in, would be very awkward for a larger person. The breakfast buffet was just okay, coffee was over-brewed, tasting burnt and bitter. The orange juice was so-so. Limited fresh fruit. Oatmeal, whole grain breads. Oddly, the bathrooms have a door leading to the outside, to a patio with a view of: nothing -- the other wing of the hotel. This door makes the bathroom very cold, even with the radiator in the bathroom turned up to the max.

We stayed 1 night here while on an Insight tour - that was more than enough. This was our 3rd Icelandair Hotel while on this trip and definitely the least desirable. The reception area is very dark and the rooms don't get any better. We had room 120. There was an entrance area where they put a stool to put your suitcase on, I guess - the light was so dim that I couldn't unpack or look for things there. It gets marginally better inside the room. There is NO ceiling light a light is present on the wall in the center of the window area - not very bright... there is also a type of floor lamp on that side of the room that provided enough light to read by there. The other bed had only a reading lamp - about 15 watts. No room safe. No key card for security. You have a real key so you have to lock the door when you leave - it isn't automatic. No record of who's been in your room for security purposes. Wifi was free but my iPad wouldn't connect in the room. Bathroom has a door to the outside area - a bit unusual. Shower is very small with curtain only - no door. I would DEFINITELY NOT stay at this hotel if given a choice. Since it was a tour, we didn't have a choice. Food was ok.

Quiet and comfortable, after walking up those volcanos and glaciers. Clean, nice restaurants. Single story. The restaurant is noisy, due to the ceiling design. Serves beer and wine. Moat rooms also have a direct door to the outside. Enough outlets.

We stayed one night in this hotel. Everyone was very friendly. The food was good. It was very close to the secret lagoon which was a plus. The bathrooms were a little odd but certainly adequate. The breakfast the next morning was very nice.
