Due to our travel agent we ended up here for our first night. It's a place that's like: I won't be back again! We stayed in one of the cottages and they have a very high Ikea feel, de main building has rooms and a breakfast room. Ther's a shuttle bus going every 15 mins. to the airport. We where... More

My friend and I were stuck in Keflavik for several days because we fly standby. We were able to book this last minute and stayed in one of their cabins. We had an easy and free shuttle ride to the property and were cozy in the cabin/little house. Breakfast was average. My only complaint is the poor wifi reception.

Love so many things about this place. #1 thing---reasonable price! Also clean and warm and cozy with many areas to meet other travelers and chat. I love the positive messages in the artwork that are sprinkled throughout. Now---it's not perfect, but if you have just been camping all over Iceland the week before like I was and are looking for...

Our flight landed around 2am in Keflavik and we hadn't planned for a place to stay. We called around and Alex Guesthouse had a cottage available. We were just so exhausted from traveling that all we cared about was a clean place to sleep and a shower. We got a lot more than that! The awesome young man who was... More

PROS: Closest place to stay near the airport that's not at the airport. The rooms were clean and spacious. They had a basic early breakfast (4:30 a.m.) and an airport shuttle. Even though it was a shared bathroom, the showers were in individual rooms so there was privacy. The little gift shop had better prices on the trinkets than the... More

The reason we booked a cabin at Alex was due to its location in relation to the airport. Our flight was very early the next morning, and there is a free shuttle from Alex to the airport. Unfortunately our cabin was extremely uncomfortable to live in because the floor looked like it had not been cleaned all summer, and the... More

Reminded me of a college dormitory, except cleaner and quieter. We had two rooms for our group of 5 adults and 1 infant. Rooms were small, but clean and the beds were comfortable. Common areas also clean and there were no lines for the showers in the morning. Breakfast was basic, but got us going. Overall, nothing fancy, but got... More

Having an early flight out of Kevlavik we appreciated the free breakfast from 4:30am and the free airport shuttle service. There's also a guest kitchen & living room area. Shop, English language cinema, restaurants all in walking distance. Modern and friendly.

Stayed here one night on the night before our flight out. Great location near the airport and they have an airport shuttle service. We were in one of the cabins and it was clean and comfortable with a double bed, couch, cooking area with refrigerator and a bathroom. It is within walking distance of downtown Keflavik and in a quiet... More

Stayed here for one night as part of a stopover. Everything was excellent for the price. The room was clean and had a toilet, the beds were really comfortable. The shuttle service to the airport is excellent and Guy the receptionist went out of his way to help us.
