Map & Directions
For inexpensive travel from the airport into the city, there is a Flybus service that runs all year long in connection with incoming flights. Tickets can be purchased on arrival, and cost 1950 ISK (approximately £10) per person for a one-way ticket. Children aged 12-15 can get half-price tickets, and under-11s ride free.
For another 550 ISK (£2.65), the Flybus will also stop at some of the major hotels and guesthouses in Reykjavík, with a last stop at Reykjavík bus station (approximately an 18-minute walk to the hotel).
Rooms & Rates
Blending the modern with the traditional, Reykjavik Residence Hotel's suites and apartments are nestled into two converted historic mansions in the heart of the city's downtown district.
The hotel's location is ideal for those wanting to explore the main streets and sites of the most northerly capital city in the world. It is a 10-minute stroll to Laugavegur Street -- Reykjavík's popular shopping district -- and the Hallgrímskirkja Church, as well as the old Reykjavík harbour area, which is also within easy walking distance. There are a number of bus stops nearby where you can access some of Iceland's most famous attractions -- such as the Golden Circle and the Blue Lagoon.
The "linens are crisp, service attentive and the light a glowing gold" at the Reykjavík Residence, according to Lonely Planet.
