This hotel is full of charm located on a small island of 2 square kilometres with some 20 houses painted in bright colors. There is only one car on the island, i.e. the car of the hotel + some tractors and you are being surrounded by many bird. We stayed there on a sunny week-end and there were many families... More

I spent 3 nights in this lovely little hotel. Some of the rooms are on the small side and facilities are shared, so may not suit everyone, but everywhere was spotless. Views were wonderful. The island of Flatey is tiny, it is very peaceful and very beautiful, perfect for photographers. The food was excellent and plenty of it and the... More

The atmosphere on Flatey is magical, with the village still home to Icelanders and the tourists (mostly day trippers) spread out thinly across the island. Bird life abounds and an eider duck was nesting right under our room window! The rooms are charming (furnished with well chosen solid pine from Ikea) and spotless. Our group of 8 took a house...

Beautiful lodgings, amazing views, and beautiful isolation from the rest of the world. Also a great restaurant. Nice staff, and a very quiet location. Not that there is much selection on Flatey, but the hotel and restaurant were worth the trip by themselves.

Staying on a small car-free island, situated in a large bay on the westside of Iceland is quite an experience. Hotel Flatey offers you a typical Icelandic atmosphere. Nice and well-decorated rooms, dining and breakfast and of course great surroundings. Note that the rooms do not have a bathroom and toilet of their own. These are available in the house... More

My wife and I went to Flatey on a day-trip from Stykkisholmur. We were not able to stay in the hotel for the night, but due to the strong, cold winds and our hunger, we spent a few hours at the hotel restaurant. The evening we were there was a special salt-fish buffet at the restaurant. As the only native... More

A very relaxing and enjoyable stay from start to finish, just wish we had stayed longer. Staying on an island with just 40 residents we didn't really know what to expect. The island is small and easy to walk around. We were treated to some excellent close up views of a variety of sea birds and and enjoyed a quiet... More

This is in fact the only hotel on the island. The rooms are spacious, the food is very good, and the people are very friendly and helpful. All in all it was a very pleasant experience. Sharing the bathroom and the showers was not as dramatic as we expected.

This is the only hotel on Flatey. Normally the downside would be that bedrooms only have a sink basin and there are shared bathrooms. We were the only ones staying there that night so worked out brilliantly. Our room had a sloping ceiling but fortunately we are both under 6'. Even then we still bumped heads occasionally. However, what a... More

I loved this place, quiet place. Very clean and the food very good. The rooms are small but very confortable! The sea is so close and, because there are no cars, you can enjoy the sea voice and birds! Lovable!
