We have reserved 30 rooms for the conference at the Hotel Fron, which is located in the center of Reykjavik.
The reservation is from June 11 to June 16 but those who book a room well in advance will have the chance to extend our reservation to June 17,18 etc or from June 10, 9, etc. We reserved 15 single rooms and 15 double rooms with a possibility for a single person to occupy such a room (for the double room price, of course). The regular price for a double room is 12800 ISK but Reykjavik University (RU) has a 20% discount. Thus, mentioning RU when registering for the conference reduces the price to 10240 ISK. (Currently $1 is roughly 72.5 ISK, 1 EUR is about 93 ISK, and 1 GBP is about 136 ISK; for an update one can consult, for instance, the following page, to get the current exchange rate). The regular price for a single room is 9900 ISK, but again a 20% discount is applied when mentioning RU (so the single room price is 7920 ISK). Breakfast is NOT included. For prices in EUR or other prices regarding, say, single rooms arrangements, one should check the hotel's web site.
In any case, we have made reservations in another place too. This is Guesthouse Duna. A single room there costs 7600 ISK and a double room costs 10500 ISK. A double room is a bit more expensive than one in Hotel Fron, but a breakfast is included there. However the rooms here do not have private bathrooms. This guesthouse is not as close to the center (about 3.3km), but it is very close to Reykjavik University (less than 0.8km) where the conference will be hold. Also, it is close to the largest shopping mall in Reykjavik (0.8 km).
Further accommodation options and other information about Reykjavik can be found at the official Tourist site of Reykjavik.
In the space below we shall maintain a list of people who would like to attend the conference and are looking for a room-mate to share accommodation costs with. If you would like to be on this list, please send an email to Mike Atkinson. People on the list are then requested to contact each other directly and make a hotel booking for the two of them; when they find a room-mate, please email Mike again and we shall remove you from the list.
