Here for a 3 night short break on 10th Jan. Arrived airport 1030 in the morning. Arrivals duty free (in the baggage pick-up area, not the ones you may walk past en-route), good value for drinks. Pre-booked Bustravel for airport pick-up, took us to Blue Lagoon and then afterwards onto our hotel. Blue Lagoon fabulous, a must experience. May need help to understand locker locking system, check to make sure your locker is locked ! Plastic bags available on roller to put your wet things into after. BL is very well organised, we stayed around 2 hours. A quick, problem-free hotel check-in. Our room overlooked the hotel front & road, no problem with noise. Hotel quiet, not full. Room had enough space for the two of us, compact bathroom but OK. Everything clean, nice and warm. kettle provided and hot drink supplies. For more choice, there was also an automatic Coffee machine in hotel corridor (coins needed). Beds really comfortable, had good nights sleep. Cold tap water drinkable (nice taste). Hot water smelt of sulpher but was OK. Switch on wall outside Bathroom enabled the Hot water (discovered this fairly quickly when turned on cold shower). Fair Breakfast selection available of usual items (up to 10am). Hot food was beans, scrambled egg & mini sausages. Nice surprise was the Pancake/Waffle making machine, make your own, tasty! Happy with what was on offer for Breakfast. As hotel was not busy there was usually only one or two other couples in the Breakfast room. We did not use the Hotel dining room, just off reception, with a small bar. Happy hour was 4-7pm. Helpful reception - free map of Reykjavik available. Take a free 'Visitor's Guide' mini-book from the small table in Reception. Free to use PC just off Reception. The hotel is in a great location, near the main street Laugavegur. Across the road from the hotel and on the right is 3 restaurants nearby (we had a good 3-course meal in the Madonna restaurant). Turn left outside of the hotel to head for Laugavegur and it's many restaurants. Did some walking around Reykjavik. Had a hot dog near the harbour, tasted great! Took a bus ride, fixed price 350Kr, exact change needed for driver. Pre-booked a Golden CIrcle day tour by a mini-bus with Iceland Guided Tours- very enjoyable & memorable. Weather was a mixture - rain, overcast, snow but not too cold. Did not see Northern Lights so will have to come back again. Booked and paid for our hotel to airport bus, using Reception the night before departure. Reception gave us an Airport Express/Grayline voucher. We were picked up from the hotel and taken to a transfer area. We then had to change our voucher for a bus ticket and transfer our luggage from the small bus to a large bus for the trip to the airport. Could have done with a longer stay as plenty to see and do, also would improve your chance of seeing the NL.
