About a two-hour drive from Reykjavik, Hotel Budir's remote location makes it popular with visitors hoping to spot the Northern Lights. Situated near a windswept beach beside the mighty Snaefellsness glacier, the hotel’s raw natural surroundings contrast beautifully with its romantic, traditional interiors, with features like leather and velvet furnishings and polished wooden floors. Pleasant decorative touches include sepia photos, bookshelves, and picture windows perfect for enjoying the scenery. The rooms are modern, with earthy, chocolate tones and contemporary furnishings. The hotel restaurant is by far the best in the area, and the bar is cozy enough to encourage lounging. Upstairs is a common area with sofas, a fireplace, and yet more great views.
