Icelandair Hotel, Keflavik: "Convenient for the airport" Top 5 Page for this destination South Iceland Hotel Tip by toonsarah

As we were arriving at 4.00 pm, and as in February it gets dark in Iceland soon after 5.00 pm, we decided that we wouldn’t drive to the Hotel Ranga, our main base, on the first day but would instead stay somewhere near to the airport in Keflavik. This also gave us an opportunity to spend the next day in Reykjavik before heading east. We chose the Icelandair Flughotel as it was recommended by both our travel company and VT member Regina1965, and was (supposedly) an easy drive from the airport. I say supposedly, because somehow in all the rain and growing darkness, we managed to get lost and had to ask a passer-by (of whom there were very few in that inclement weather) for directions. Still, we found it, and it proved to be more than adequate for our needs – a good sized room with a comfortable bed (two singles pushed together to make a queen), TV, mini-bar etc. The bathroom however was a bit functional for a four star hotel, being of the capsule style you usually find in the cheaper chains and with just wall-mounted shower gel dispenser. And unless you get very excited by photos of airplanes you will probably find the art-work on the walls a little dull (a shame, as the pieces in the public areas were much more varied and interesting).
There is a large restaurant downstairs, and a small bar. We had dinner in the former (see separate review) and also the breakfast that was included in our room rate. This was good, with juices, various cereals (with lots of seeds, nuts and fruit to add to them), yoghurt, assorted breads, different cold meats and cheeses, sausages and bacon, and a waffle-maker.
Address: Hafnargata 57, Keflavik
Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: There’s a map on the website but we still managed to miss the way in the dark – and note that the GPS they give there is for the WRONG Icelandair Hotel – follow that and you’ll end up in Fludir!
