I arrived in Reykjavik via the FlyBus and was hoping to catch a shuttle out to this place where I had a reservation. I was told they couldn't because it's "out where we keep the schools". It's in a nice residential area but far from anything in Reykjavik. The #3 bus comes every 30 minutes during normal hours and drops off close by so once you're settled in it's just a 20 minute bus into town, but that's still a lot of time spent waiting on the bus or at the bus station.
The House Keeper also doesn't stay on location, so you better have a phone on you. I didn't, so I had no way to contact him to be checked in which was a problem. I had to go bother some neighbors down the road to call for me and he arrived 20 minutes later.
Other than that the place is very nice and quiet, the rooms are pleasant, and the price is excellent.
