First this hotel is at least a 20min drive from downtown Reykjavik. For the best experience, you really ought to have a car...I was told that there was a bus station nearby, but imagine how long a bus ride would be if the car ride is 20mins. Anyways, it was a little difficult to find. I was in the city first, and my tour guide has never heard of the hotel...neither did the gal at the tourist office. On whatever official site she used to finally find the guesthouse, it is called fr...well, the icelandic word for freedom and 2000 or something. Don't quote me on that. Anyways, driving there was only a little difficult. But make sure that you get directions from someone at the tourist office...b/c it can get confusing...thank goodness the Icelandic drive on the right side. Checking in was slow, since there is no reception. You must call the "housekeeper" and then he arrives with his laptop to check you in. Do print out the reservation confirmation; he will ask for that. The guesthouse itself was nice, but looked slightly half finished. There were a few electrical wires hanging out, part of the sofa fell off when one of our group sat down, the door gets stuck easily, etc. I am happy with the arrangement. The house was clean, spacious, and sunny. There was free wifi, free parking, and a decent kitchen. There was even a free computer station. Whoever owns the house is a bibliophile...what a great collection of books. Some were even in English. I'd rec this place to anyone with a car....we were traveling around peak season, so there were not a lot of vacancies. If I had a choice, I would stay closer to the center of town, but this worked out fine. Easy access to Route 41, which is a straight shot to KEF. O, one more thing...like some of the hotels in Iceland, the water smells faintly of sulfur. The smell disappears from you after a little while. O, and there is an N1 (gas station) and a Bonus (cheap grocery store) nearby.
