Recent guest reviews
Stayed at this hotel after the Hotel Gullfoss unexpectedly canceled our reservation and moved us here. This hotel is a far drive from Gullfoss and Geysir. The room was shabby and dated. No kettle or coffee. Breakfast was okay. The front desk operator tried to charge us for an extra breakfast claiming that the Hotel Gullfoss only made the reservation for one person. I didn't feel this was our problem as the reservation I made was for two people. I don't think she charged us in the end but I can't be sure as I still believe I paid more than the €245 I agreed to at the time of booking.
We had a room for three (two of us and our teenage son). Even though the room was a double with an extra bed added, it had ample room for the three of us. The decor was a bit dated. It overlooked an internal courtyard with hot tubs and some outdoor seating. We were concerned about noise from people in the hot tubs but had no issues. The bathroom was large. It had a door directly into the courtyard, which would have been useful if we used the hot tubs. The lobby was very nice and offered a nice view. Breakfast was very good.
Chose this hotel because it was on my way driving the golden circle. It was a good choice! Check-in was fast and the girl from the front desk was very kind and assisted us with maps and all the directions and sights in the area. The hotel is located in Fludir, a small calm town so we decided to come back to their restaurant for dinner. I had the best mushroom soup ever and a also a nice presented cod dish. The price is high, but very reasonable related to food in Iceland. Bedroom is big and the bathroom has L´Occitane toilletries, totally a plus. I would like a room facing the patio but ended up facing the street and small garden. ok then. There is no kettle, tea or coffee in the room. Neither minibar. For the price payed and since it is a good hotel, they should have those amenities in room.
The Icelandair hotel Fludir is a bit different from the other Icelandair hotels. It has groundfloor rooms, which give this place an instant cosy feeling. There is a hot tub in the center of the courtyard, the food was delicious and the breakfast was extensive. There are some lovely paintings in the sitting area. I would for sure recommend this place.
We had great lunch at Fludir! The meal was very good. My daughter can't stop saying how much she enjoyed their food. No fuss, just good food. The staff were very lovely and accommodating. We will definitely go back to Hotel Fludir and next time stay there not just for lunch.
Room was more spartan than previous rooms on our tour of Iceland, but comfortable. The weather was quite raw during our visit so we did not use the hot tubs in the courtyard as they seemed too cool to us, but others did use them. Had it been clear, it would have been perfect to sit there and search for the northern lights. Our room had entry to the courtyard through our bathroom. On site restaurant was tasty and the free breakfast had a array of food. Everyone should be able to find something they like. Loved the herring! Gravlox also on the table.
The meals are good and it is the best one in the area. The hotel is clean and the area is just amazing. There is free wi-fi in the rooms and dining is available in the hotel. The staff was helpful and everyone speaks English.
The staff were lovely and very helpful! We had dinner at the restaurant which was well worth eating at because the food was delicious and great quality! Very cute little hotel overall! Shower pressure was amazing and there was shower gel and hair products in the shower!
Our first night was a minimalist feel yet very comfortable and cozy at Hotel Fludir. It was a quaint hotel that I would definitely return to if I were in the area again. It is close to the Gullfoss Waterfall and the Secret Lagoon. Rooms- Very basic but had what you needed and were nice and clean. Shower was extremely small and it is not enclosed completely. Beds were very comfortable and bedding was very warm, those are key factors in Iceland! Room had nice large windows for viewing the Northern Lights if they appear. Jacuzzi- they have two hot spring looking Jacuzzis on premise but when we went to them they were luke warm which isn't enough for Iceland, we wish they were hotter, but they are cool none the less. Food and Drink- Bar was open til about 11/12 which was nice to catch a late night drink since we were touring all day. We missed dinner as they have very set hours. Breakfast the next morning was hearty and nice. Enough variety to keep most happy! Staff- small, but answered all questions we had. Felt more like a B & B. Location- great midway point between Reykjavik and Jokulsarlon. TIPS: ** Don't forget a converter to use the plugs! **Definitely do an into the cave type tour. **Renting a car is super helpful. **There are hidden police and speeding cameras so do not speed!! **Try to plan some meals with importance, the days really get away from you if you are touring.
We would definitely recommend this hotel, a great all round accommodation. Good food, nothing was too much for the staff and loved the products in the bathrooms. After a long day of exploring they were more then happy to provide room service and the rooms were cleaned every day.
