Nice, comfortable place to stay. It is not fancy, but a good balance between budget and extragavance. Itwas a great location near the city center. The room had a private bathroom with shower. The bathroom was small as expected, butwas very cleanand updated. The wifi was included and worked well. The one thing that made this an exceptionallyniceplace was the very friendly service. The owner, Gunner, was very responsive to all emails, and even offered early check in without us requesting it. I would defiitely recommend this location.

We arrivd in Rekjavik at 6:35am local time. The owner of the place we were staying said we could come and settle in as early as we want.

We spent around 45 minutes at each, which was just enough time to get some good photo's and walk upto the top of each on the somewhat slippery paths. At one point I was completely on my own at the foot of Skogafoss- it really was quite incredible though rather wet amid the spray.
The next part of the tour was by far my most memorable experience whilst in Iceland. We were taken upto ...

spikes fitted to them they simply race along the streets as though it was a
normal tarred road.
Finally back at the hotel and its only 4pm. At this time of year the
nights really do drag on in this country and with the weather outside in a
storm the only thing one can do is sit in the hotel lounge and chat about what
tours are going over a drink and so that is exactly what we did.
... two grilled skewers. Monkfish and lamb and chicken wings. deep fried veggies served in a bowl All perfectly cooked. Curly fries and a Cobbette of corn served with a pat of butter and black lava salt, it was a great meal. All of this , including the slab of bread, served on a wood carving board. We took a shuttle to the bus station , transferred to a big bus and off to the blue lagoon. We walked through a path with lava walls on each side ...
As soon as we left Reykjivik harbour last night the waters were rougher. To stay ahead of sea sickness Bonnie downed her Gravol and set the alarm to repeat it in 4 hours. Neither of us heard the alarm and did not wake up until 8:50 AM. We could not believe it. Seas proved to be less "adverse” than anticipated although the ship is still shaking a bit. Visibility is low which makes me wonder if the fog hours ...
