cheap enough place to say in a great location, rooms clean, although shower is sulphury as expected, breakfast adequate and they are happy to have it ready early for early trips etc. Staff sorted trip to blu lagoon, airport bus with no complications. Chines place round corner good for sub 10 quid meal. Hot dogs from stand nearby cheap but small - order 2!

After a 2 hour flight we arrived at Keflavík airport, and got straight onto a shuttle bus that took us to our hotel in Reykjavik.

It also looks a little from the outside like a space shuttle. There is a lift to the top of the tower, from where you can get a great view over the city. And it is indeed a great view.
... my bag arrived at the hotel - success! Dísa and Steini offered to take us for a drive to Hveragerđi, a geothermal area with some crazy steaming water and mud river - very cool! Had some coffee and cake before heading back to Reykjavik. We are both totally exhausted after staying up for 24 hours with only a few catnaps. Picked up some groceries...and headed to the hotel to crash for the night.
