Need an advise.

We are arriving to Keflavik at 6:40 am. Our hotel denied to provide early check-in, so it will be just after 15:00pm. Can you please advice what we can do during this time.

Thanks in advance

Where is your hotel located? Will you have a rental car?

Hotel is located in the center of Reykjavik. We can rent a car it is not a problem. The idea was to take day tours during our stay( 5 days), that is why I was thinking do not rent a car just because of tours pick up from the hotel.

Why don´t you contact a private guide, to pick you up from the airport, and take you for a tour, and come to the hotel in the afternoon ?

Yes, I agree that it sounds like a good idea. Another option would be to collect your bags, visit the airport shops, have a leisurely breakfast there (just to pass a couple of hours), and then take a bus to the Blue Lagoon for its opening. It's just a short drive from the airport, between Keflavik and Reykjavik. You could relax in the water, have lunch, and do some photography on the grounds before taking a bus to Reykjavik and checking into your hotel.

We'll be arriving early on our trip in late Feb too, and our hotel (Centerhotel Thingholt) has kindly agreed to hold our luggage for us until we can check in. We're going to spend the time exploring the city centre and having a wander along the harbour, getting our bearings and finding places that look good to eat at for the rest of our trip. We missed out on the Blue Lagoon idea (as I booked a non-refundable direct transfer to our hotel before finding out that you could go there on the way from the airport!), but that does sound like a lovely way to spend your time before you check in!

Can you cancel your hotel and find one that is more accomodating? We arrive early, got into town and went to our guesthouse. They told us in advance that they would store our luggage, but when we arrived they had a room and we checked in at around 8:30 in the morning. They let us have breakfast too.

If your hotel won't provide at least luggage storage, it does not bode well if there are other problems.
