This is a practical option for those wanting a place close to the international airport. The owners operate a shuttle to the airport and we felt very confident we would get there in time for our flight. We had a cabin - it was pretty basic with quite a small double bed. The curtains were not really sufficient to keep... More

Alex Guesthouse is about a 3 minute drive to the airport so no time is wasted trying to get there. The guesthouse offers free transport and free breakfast that starts at 4 am! The rooms are small but clean and tidy. The shared bathrooms are close by and convenient. There is a small sink in the room. There is a... More

Perfect place to stay over last night. 5 minutes drive to airport. Nice polish receptionist - really helpful. Basic breakfast but wooden house is stunning! Add more 10 quids and take the bungalow - it's worth it!

We (2 adults) booked the cabin because we thought it would be nice to have a private bathroom, but after we walked past the main hall (one of the empty rooms have the door left open), we thought it would be so much better to stay in the shared bathroom rooms, because: 1) cabin is further away. So without a... More

We got picked up by a very friendly staff at Keflavik airport (included in the price). We got picked up fifteen minutes after we called. Since we booked a little off tourist season, we got a free upgrade and got a private bathroom. We were positively surprised by the room, it was spacious and functional. The breakfast was simple but... More

This is a good place to stay if you want simple, clean accommodation close to the airport. The rooms are very clean, but simple. Breakfast was fine, but again pretty simple fare. The internet connection was good, but be careful if you are in one of the huts, as you have to go to the main building to use the... More

My two children and I stayed at the Alex before taking an early morning flight and had primarily chosen it because of its location, which is indeed good (and so was breakfast, by the way). But we got precious little sleep because of noise from the hallway. People arriving at all hours, chatting, laughing, dragging suitcases... all of this could... More

We stayed here for a night recently upon arriving late at night at Keflavik. They were very slow to pick us up despite us calling ahead earlier in the day - it took almost half an hour and two additional phone calls, even though they are a two minute drive away - and they weren't particularly friendly when they did....

I arrived in Keflavik from Boston near midnight. There was no phone number in my confirmation email but the airport tourist information area had an easy to find flier. I called the motel and within five minutes I was picked up (well I got a return call from the driver because I was standing in the wrong place for pick... More

When you land in Iceland or when you are sadly saying goodbye it's the best time to go to Alex guesthouse! Easy to reach by car and bus. 4 to 5 min to the terminal, the shuttle is for free at any time and you can have a good breakfast also at 4.30 am. If you want to relax it... More
