What a nice place to stay. A small hotel off the beaten path about ten minutes from Reykjavik. KFC next door Dominoes across the street. The staff is so friendly and helpful. We just loved it, would give my highest recommendation.

Hi, the yellow public buses are ISK470 per adult for a 1-way journey. Children 6-18 are ISK235, these are current prices in 2019. You would need to pay with cash and exact change, as they do not give you change. The schedule is very easy: every 30 minutes, bus 15, at :15 and :45 past the hour. To come back from Reykjavik, pick up the bus at Hlemmur bus stop heading towards Mosfellsbær. Same times :15 and :45 past each hour. Buses start at 06:45 on weekdays, on Saturdays the first bus is at 07:45 and on Sundays 09:45. Last buses from leave from Helmmur in Reykjavik at 00:15.

Yes you can. And they knock on your door if they’re out before midnight. Wonderful people and neat place. I’d go back in a heartbeat.

Hi Theattery, thank you for contacting us at Hotel Laxnes. We don't have a restaurant on site for dinner, but there is a lovely local restaurant about 7-10 minutes drive from us. We do however serve breakfast at the hotel, which is included in your stay. As for driving time from the airport, it is about 45-50 minutes. If you would like a quote from us please email us direct at hotellaxnes@hotellaxnes.is. Many thanks, Tanja
