driving and parking in Reykjavik

How hard is it to park in the center of the city? We are thinking of staying outside of the city center to be in a quieter area but we want to still be able to have easy access to the restaurants and sites

Sometimes it can be challenging. Especially around Laugarvegur. There are reserved parking lots at some of the hotels/guesthouses. Then there are several parking garages, see them on map here: bilastaedasjodur.is/desktopdefault.aspx/… and their addresses here: bilastaedasjodur.is/desktopdefault.aspx/… Parking zones: bilastaedasjodur.is/PortalData/22/Resources/… and their prices: bilastaedasjodur.is/desktopdefault.aspx/…

Thanks. Maybe we should stay closer in. Do you have any suggestions for reasonable guesthouses?

You really should not worry about parking! There is plenty of spaces available, you will always find space at most you need to walk few meters. The challenging part is friday evening and saturdays, or when big events are there.

At least I would not make choice of Hotel based on this! And if there would be trouble to find spot for restaurant, it certainly would be the same for guesthouse.

In terms of responding to the driving part of your subject line, brush up on your traffic circle skills! Lots of them in the city (and elsewhere in Iceland for that matter), in lieu of traffic lights.

Kolaportid Flea market is down by the harbour, like the rest of the ,,downtown"

Parking fee is around 225 Isk. per hour, and none after 18:00
