Arrival in Iceland
Coming from the airport
If you are coming with the fly-bus from the airport the (fare arr. ISK 2000 / return 3500) Iceland Excursion usually a bit cheaper than Reykjavik Excursion). It is best to take the Fly-bus to Grand Hotel which is like 1 minutes from my house (300 meters).

The proximity of my house includes the largest thermal swimming pool in Iceland along with workout facility among the best in Europe called World class, museums and restaurants a some of them in 5 min distance,

From the house to downtown is about 20 min. walk. swimming pool and World class 7 min. walk.

Tourist travel info
You will be able to book any tours you might want with us we have an inhouse booking agency and feel free to contact us with your wishes we also take care of your needs regarding car rentals and if you want to rent bicycles to take a look around Reykjavik we have them as wel (Website hidden by Airbnb) All the tourist info regarding what is happening in Reykjavik and around Iceland along with tours, such as hiking and or whale watching is inhouse and is called Iceland-online its a family operated you will be guided through all the interesting places and must see events while you stay with us. please do not hezitate to ask us through that site (Info) what ever your interest might be
Some Practical info:
Blue Lagoon is very popular with tourists and has become like a must to do along with the Golden circle. I do though recommend the thermal swimming pool comparatively more, not least as their entrance fee is like 10 times less and also a better way to meet the locals. The one closest to my home around 7 minutes walking,
The best way for the Blue Lagoon especially for those who are not staying so long in Iceland is with the company, they usually have the best online prices or arr. 7000 isk for busride and entrance fee.
a) From the airport (coming) do; the airport – Blue lagoon – Reykjavik first tour around 9 am.
b) From Reykjavik (leaving) to the airport that is leaving back home, via Blue Lagoon only though if your flight is in the afternoon (leaving the Blue Lagoon at 12.30 or 14.00 to the airport). This is also possible with the companies Reykjavik and Iceland excursion but their prices are a bit higher but they have more frequent departures.
Never buy water in Iceland wether in shops or restaurants, the water from the tab is the best in the world and repeatedly chosen the best tasting and purest water in the world. so if you want it bottled bottle it at home before you go :) breakfast is included but it is help your self to whatever you want in the fridge :) You also have room for your own groceries in the fridge.
On a side note we, Icelanders were just voted the most peaceful nation in the world...again not bad

Gisli was an amazing host. Right from the start he made us feel really welcome. He picked us at 3am from the nearby drop off point of the airport shuttle. He let us use his kitchen and even eat his food for breakfast every morning which saved us a lot of money in Iceland. We unfo…

Great room, very warm and clean. We were able to walk to town and back though it is a bit of a trek and you need to dress warmly. Gisli was a great host.

Great neighborhood! Took me about 20 minutes walk to the downtown area. Everything was super clean and comfortable. Gisli responded immediately to all my messages. He was very nice and made sure we had what we needed.

Great host. Very friendly and resourceful. Only downside - is he is always there. He sleeps on the couch and knows when you come in and when you leave. Made me feel like I am back with my parents. other than that, he's a very good host.
