Early morning check-in
If you are arriving from the USA your flight will get in very early in the morning the day after you departing from the States. Allowing for travelling between the airport and Reykjavik city center you will be here at about 8 AM. We will do everything we can to get you your apartment as soon as possible but have to take into consideration guests that occupy the apartment on the previous night and may be departing on the afternoon flights out of Iceland. If you want a guaranteed early morning check-in we offer you 50% discount off the previous day so the apartment is ready for you upon arrival in the early hours of the morning. Please send us a note in the comments column on the booking form if you want to take advantage of this.
Directions and helpful hints
Most people will arrive by plane at Keflavik International airport. It is about 50 km. from Reykjavik. We can arrange for a pre-booked taxi for up to 4 passengers plus luggage for 10.000 Icelandic kronurs for the car not per person. A bigger taxi for up to 5-8 people is 2.500 ISK per person. This special fare is subject to availability of the cheapest taxi but we will confirm availability with your booking.
The driver will have a sign wih OUR name on it.
If you hire a car at the airport you should follow the signs for Reykjavik city center. Our street is on every map of Reykjavik as it is the main shopping street (Laugavegur). It is a long street going through most of the city center and out toward the east part of town. Our hotel is on the part of the street that is in the city center. The closest crossroad is Laugavegur and Klapparstigur and very close to that is a small street called "Vegamótastigur" (which is not on every map). We are in the big building on this corner of Laugavegur and Vegamótastigur. You can turn on this corner, as there is easy car park in this street or behind our building. Next to us one house further down Laugavegur the main street there is big red neon sign "HOTEL" which are our Neighbors at Hotel Skjaldbreid. Parking is easy and you only pay in the meters on the main street during shopping hours 10-18 on weekdays and 10-14 on Saturday and Sunday and all other hours are free so you just park on the meters and pay after 10 in the mornings or move your car to the residential streets up or down one street from Laugavegur. You can park in the spaces right behind our building even if there is a Tow-away sign there and unload your luggage.
The bus from the airport -FLY BUS- cost 2.500 ISK per person. It will make a stop at the bus terminal where the driver may ask you to change over to a smaller bus for the city center. They will then drive you to our hotel.
Remember that there is a Duty Free store for incoming passengers at Keflavik airport and this is your last chance of buying your Duty free allowance of beer, wineand and spirits. Once you have entered Iceland the goverment taxes alcohol heavily and the prices can be 3 times more expensive than at the airport.
Iceland has 220 voltage and standard European (german type) plugs. We have plug adaptors but you should not bring equipment that need 110 volts only like hair dryers but cameras and computers usually have dual voltage 110/220 and they are fine. You can drink the tap water in Iceland.
