HOW CAN WE FIND YOU?
Please check http://www.1×6.is/find-us

CAN WE CHECK IN ANY TIME?
No, sorry. We do check-in by appointment. We kindly ask you to inform us about your arrival time, as we need to plan our days ahead and we are not always at home. If your arrival time changes , we kindly ask you to send us a message or to call us. Being situated next to an international airport, we do have very long working hours starting at 03:00am. Therefore, we are taking a break between 11:00 and 16:00 and we won’t be available during this time, so the doors will be closed. We kindly ask you to respect our privacy.

MAY WE DEPOSIT OUR LUGGAGE EARLIER (BEFORE 16:00/4pm)
As we are unavailable between 11:00 and 16:00 (4pm), you would have to bring your luggage before 11:00 or after 16:00. Due to our long working hours starting at 03:00am, we are having a lunch break and a siesta before check-in starts. We kindly ask you to respect our privacy.

MAY WE CHECK-IN EARLY (BEFORE 16:00/4pm)
No, sorry. Please note that check-in before 16:00 is not available. Due to our long working hours starting at 03:00am, we are having a lunch break and a siesta before check-in starts. We kindly ask you to respect our break.

OUR FLIGHT IS ARRIVING EARLY MORNING – CAN WE CHECK IN EARLY MORNING?
If your flight arrives very early in the morning and you wish to arrive here directly after your flight, you need to book an additional night (the night before your arrival). This also gives you the opportunity to have breakfast on arrival if you choose the rate which includes breakfast. Arrival breakfast is only available with a booking of an extra night.

WHAT ARE YOUR CHECK-IN TIMES?
General check-in is possible by appointment only from 16:00 (4pm) to 00:00 (midnight). Late arrival after 22:00 is subject to special request and confirmation from Guesthouse 1×6. We do have a beautiful hot tub in the garden and there are many restaurants in town, so you better arrive early to enjoy your stay.

OUR FLIGHT ARRIVES VERY LATE. WHAT IS THE LATE ARRIVAL PROCEDURE?
As stated on our website, check-in is possible from 16:00 (4pm) to 22:00(10pm). Late arrival after 22:00(10pm) is subject to special request and confirmation from Guesthouse 1×6. We also added in the important information, that if you are are arriving on a flight around midnight, pick-up service from the airport is compulsory. We kindly ask you to provide your full flight information (flight number, arrival time and port of origin). We will meet you at the airport arrival hall to bring you to our guesthouse as soon as possible. If you are planning to rent a car, please note that due to the number of airplanes arriving, it is too time consuming to pick up a car after arrival. In the morning, we will bring you to the car rental station if you wish so.

WHAT TIME IS CHECK-OUT?
Check-out time is before 11:00.

MAY WE CHECK OUT LATE?
No, sorry, but late check-out is not available as we only have a short time to clean the rooms. However, if your flight is leaving late, you may deposit your luggage at our guesthouse free of charge while you go on a stroll through town. You may then come back to pick up your luggage before you fly out.

WE WILL RETURN OUR RENTAL CAR IN THE EVENING – CAN YOU PLEASE PICK US UP AT THE CAR RENTAL STATION?
No, sorry, but we are unable to offer pick-ups from Car Rental Stations as we need to be on site when customers are arriving. Please note that many car rental agencies are driving their customers directly to our guesthouse free of charge or even pick up the car in front of our guesthouse, so we kindly ask you to check the service with your car rental agency first. Also, there are several agencies that have their office at industrial areas but not at the airport terminal building itself, so they offer shuttle busses to/from their office in town to our guesthouse. Therefore, it might be that you don’t need to go to the airport to drop your car but to a different place nearby. Please also note that most car rental agencies are well prepared for morning drop off’s as most of the planes are leaving early morning. It’s normally a matter of 10 min. if there are no issues with the car. So you might want to think of keeping the car until the morning as you don’t save time by bringing the car back in the evening. Rental agreements are usually calculated on a 24 hour basis, so it is usually the same rate for dropping off the car in the evening or in the morning.

DO YOU OFFER TRANSFER SERVICES?
Upon request and confirmation, we do offer free pick-up / drop-off to/from Keflavik Airport for guests arriving by plane or bus. Please contact us by e-mail for arrangement and further details. As we are a small guesthouse, there is no scheduled shuttle bus, we are driving you with our car. NO pick up after you have returned the rental car. Please organise transportation through your rental agency.

IS THERE A PUBLIC BUS FROM OR TO REYKJAVIK?
If you wish to use the public bus, there is stræto bus line no. 55 from Reykjavik (BSI bus terminal or Ráðhúsið town hall) which is bound for Keflavik Airport via Keflavik town. On Saturday/Sunday/Holiday or evening, the route 55 starts in Hafnarfjörður, so you have to take any bus to  Hafnarfjörður first. The closest bus stop to our guesthouse is called HRINGBRAUT/MELTEIGUR, which is a 5 minutes walk from our guesthouse. Once you get off at the bus stop, walk down Vesturgata towards the sea, at the roundabout you can see our guesthouse. Please note that the straeto bus is a lot cheaper than the Flybusses to the airport.

ARE YOU CLOSE TO THE WATERFALLS AND VOLCANOES?
No, we are not, but of course you can go there in a day excursion. Please check our excursions section on our website for further info: http://www.1×6.is/excursions

ARE YOU CLOSE TO THE BLUE LAGOON
We are a 20 minutes drive by car. Please refer to this page for further info: http://www.1×6.is/blue-lagoon

IS THERE A BUS FROM OR TO THE BLUE LAGOON?
No. Limited scheduled bus service is only available to/from Keflavik airport, so we recommend to rent a car. Please check the timetable on this link: http://www.bluelagoon.com/transportation-schedule/ and also see our special page http://www.1×6.is/blue-lagoon

WHERE IS THE BEST PLACE TO SEE THE NORTHERN LIGHTS?
If the weather is fine and the activity is high, you will be able to see the northern lights directly from our garden. However, if you have a rental car, it will allow you to drive out to the nature to spend time outside and wait for the lights. There is no guarantee to see it as you need to have clear skies and high activity at the same time. But the more time you spend outside looking into the skies, the more likely it is to see the lights. There are sometimes also tours to see the northern lights with a pick up from our guesthouse, but we recommend to book them last second when the chances are high as otherwise it’s a waste of time and money.

WHAT KIND OF ACTIVITIES / RENTAL CAR OFFERS DO YOU HAVE?
If you would like to book excursions like the Blue Lagoon or the Golden Circle or a rental car, we are happy to help. Please check our excursions section on our website for further info: http://www.1×6.is/excursionsPlease don’t hesitate to contact us to find out more.

CAN WE GO SKIING?
There is a ski area near Reykjavik called Bláfjöll, but as the weather is very unpredictable and you have to have quiet and nice winter weather to be able to go there, so don’t count on it. As there is only one bus a day which leaves from Reykjavik, you can almost only reach it with a good 4×4 rental car:

DO YOU OFFER BREAKFAST?
Our famous & mostly organic breakfast needs to be pre-booked at least 24 hours prior arrival. It is an extended European set breakfast with coffee specialties, homemade breads and jams and a wide selection of local and organic choices (cheese, fish, meat, eggs, fruits, yoghurt). Breakfast is served daily from 04:30am until 09:30am (If your flight is leaving at 07:00am or earlier, we are unable to serve breakfast as you need to leave before 04:30am). However, if you wish you may order a takeaway breakfast.

We kindly ask you to inform us beforehand if you are vegetarian or if you have any allergies that we need to know of. The rate for our standard breakfast is ISK 2500 per adult (ISK 1250 for children from 6-11 years) – supplements apply for special requirements.

MAY I HAVE A ROOM WITH SEA VIEW?
Please note that none of our rooms offer a sea view. However, you can enjoy the sea view from our breakfast area as well as anywhere outside our guesthouse.

MAY I HAVE A ROOM WITH A PRIVATE BATHROOM?
Please note that none our rooms do offer a private bathroom / toilet. However, there is a maximum of 3 rooms sharing 1 bathroom, so it has never been an issue. We also allocate our guests according to travel times to avoid conflicts.

MAY I HAVE A QUIET ROOM?
Please note that none our rooms are more quiet than others. We only have 3 rooms on each floor and we try to keep the house quiet after 22:00. However, the guesthouse is in an old house and none of the rooms are soundproof and you will hear the other guests or doors closing. If you are a light sleeper, please ask us for ear plugs, we provide them free of charge.

I DO HAVE A SPECIAL ROOM REQUEST
We do allocate our guests according to their travel times in order to provide a good sleep for everyone. Therefore, we can never guarantee a specific room request. However, we will try to fulfil all room requests, subject to availability.

MAY I USE THE HOT POOL / GARDEN SPA IN THE NIGHT?

Enjoy our beautiful geothermal hot pool in the garden. In order to provide a good sleep for all of our guests, opening times are every day from 16:00 to 22:00 (evening) and from 08:00 to 11:00 (morning). For exceptions, please ask us.
