I am looking for a map of Reykjavik that shows accomodations near the international airport.
I will be traveling there in November for an Eve fanfest.
Any fellow Eve enthusiasts out there??
The airport is not in Reykjavik but in Keflavik.
I booked the Hotel Keflavik through Expedia. Perfectly acceptable for a short stay. For a longer stay it's worth staying in Reykjavik.
Two points about the Hotel Keflavik:
1. Be aware that their restuarant is of the Chinese variety - fine for me, I like that kind of food.
2. Don't use their public computers to book tours online. They're not secure enough. An opportunist booked an air ticket with my card - I had physical possession of the card so I assume my details were autofilled by the computer, which shouldn't be possible with modern systems.
3. Expect to encounter lots of US military personnel and/or their families as the economy in Keflavik is dominated by an American air base.
Make that three points :)
I assume you mean the Keflavik International Airport (KEF) and not the smaller "domestic" airport in Reykjavik (RKV) (though the latter airport does have international flights to the Faroe Islands and Greenland).
You might be better off staying in Reykjavik unless you have a very early flight. An easy "Flybus" connects Reykjavik to the Keflavik airport in about 45 minutes. Cost is 1200 Icelandic Kronur (roughly equivalent to US$19 or or 780 Indian Rupee). Check out www.flybus.is for details.
BTW, you don't have to worry about American military anymore -- the Keflavik base closed last year.
Thanks Mark - I was there last August and there was talk of it closing but I didn't realise it had happened already.
Not that it 'worried' me. Sitting in a Chinese restaurant hearing American accents didn't always feel like being in Iceland, to be fair, but it wasn't a problem.
There is a map of Reykjavik at http://www.backman.is/mapofrvk/
I understand that "Eve fest" is in Laugardalshöll, which is square 14 on the map. The local hostel is actually nearby, see http://www.hostel.is
