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.

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
just act like normal please the apartmernt is yours while you stay
Kitchen : Fridgerator stocked for breakfast the most important meal of the day specially when your going on tours or hikes
