“Quiet, peaceful with lovely scenery”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

After taking the ferry, I had booked a nights stay at Hotel Flokalundur. Pleasant surprise. Beautiful spot tucked in a cove setting at a nature preserve. Room is simple and sparse. It was very quiet and the windows from the room had a view of the hillside behind the hotel. Common area was nice and the front and side porch had awesome views of the water and fjords. I only had some soup in the restaurant which was good. lovely area! Did some hiking close by and exploring the preserve. Was wishing I could have spent more time there! room was around $100+ for the night.

Most of Iceland is pretty empty but the West Fjord area of Iceland makes other parts of Iceland look like Hong Kong. Flokalundur is in the southwest part of the West Fjord area and is convenient to the Dynjandi waterfall (about 25 kilometers away), the ferry terminal (6 km away) and the Latrabjarg Bird Cliffs (60 kilometers away).

Flokalundur isn't really a town. More like a collection of buildings. There is a hotel and a restaurant occupying one building and a snack shop with a gas pump occupying another building. It is about a 3 1/2 hour to 4 hour drive from the Ring Road.

There's nothing too great about this hotel but nothing horrible either. The rooms are very basic, small, and narrow. There are no tv's in the room (tv in common area) and the room is divided into two by a door. The front part of the room has the bathroom and the back part of the room has the beds. Neither part could be described as spacious. The soundproofing in the rooms isn't great but our neighbors were quiet, so it worked out ok.

The best part about the hotel was the restaurant. Very good food and diverse menu. You don't have to let them know ahead of time if you plan on eating here. Even if you don't like the food, it is a several hour drive to the next town that has a restaurant, so I wouldn't be too picky.

By the way, the West Fjord area of Iceland is beautiful and well worth the trouble of mediocre hotels and bad roads to get here. This is the area of the country if you want to get away from it all.

Stayed one night in this guesthouse last summer, everything quite nice, simple and clean, a bit dated though, could use some refurbishing. No minibar or tv... pretty much as expected. Would stay here again.
