Hotel Budir

HOTEL BUDIR IS IN A LEAGUE OF ITS OWN and is without a doubt set in one of the most beautiful places in Iceland, just a couple of hours drive from Reykjavik. This elegant hotel stands aside from others, boasting all amenities, a charming atmosphere, great service, and a restaurant renowned for its exquisite cuisine.

The hotel sits at the edge of The Snaefellsjokull National Park in a lava field on the westernmost tip of the Snaefellsnes peninsula in the western region of Iceland. Due to the hotel´s location, guests have an impressive view of the breathtaking Snaefellsjokull glacier and the Budir-estuary which meanders into the vast Faxafloi-Bay where a number of seals reside.

The hotel´s history dates back to 1948 but the history of Budir stretches back long before the hotel was originally built.  Budir was a prominent trading centre from the 17th century and remains from that time can be seen around the hotel. 

The tranquillity of the countryside and the force radiating from the glacier inspire and invigorate guests. Staying at Hotel Budir, whether it is for meetings and conventions, or for personal – not to mention romantic occasions, is therefore always a fantastic experience.

It’s all about the location. Hotel Budir (pronounced ‘boothir’) is a 2-hour drive from Reykjavik on the dramatic Snaefellsnes peninsula.
