we stayed one night in one of their little cottages ( we had an early morning flight) and would not stay there again. all cottages that were shown to us were dirty, especially the floor. there were hair, fingernails, earplugs and once even pieces of broken glass on the floor - a problem when you´re travelling with a toddler. we...

It was great pleasure to sleep in tte summer cottage and listen the rain and the strong icelandic wind. Only 5 minutes from airport by car. Free breakfast and parking, great wooden shower with a window, very helphul and friendly personal, check-in 24 hours.

As we had just a stopover on Iceland we have chosen this motel due to its short distance to the airport. We booked two nights as we arrived early in the morning and wanted to make sure that we got a room. The room was rather small and had only a washing basin. Showers and toilets are on the same...

We were overnighting in Iceland so that we could spend the day driving around and seeing whatever we could in a short time span. Alex Guesthouse is very close to the airport but not noisy and there is a rental car place right next door so we didn't have to waste any time in the morning. There are all different... More

As it is fairly close to the KEF airport, (a long way from Reykjavik) we stayed one night in a wood cabin next to the main building. It was cute and comfy, but quite rustic. The staff were pleasant and the main building has w-fi and a breakfast room. Another good thing about the location is that there is a... More

Motel Alex was our last stop before our flight back from Iceland. It is really a fitting end to this picturesque country. It is located approx 1 km from Reykjanesbær, a small township near the airport. However, there is no public transport from this town towards the motel. One has to walk a grueling 2 km from the nearest road... More

We've spent our last night in Iceland at the Alex Guesthouse. We forgot to book in advance, luckily they still had a triple room available when we called. The location makes it an ideal place to spend the first or last night, however, the Keflavik city center is a bit too far if you don't have a car. For the... More

Stayed at Alex over the night between flights from Sweden to the U.S. Simple living but EXTREMELY clean! Breakfast is included as well. Very well worth the price, especially since transfer to/from airport is free.

We stayed in an adorable tiny cabin with private bath for two nights on our way to Europe. The cabin was clean, had a little oven too, it has a heater too. The motel is very reasonable priced as most hotels in Icelandic are hugely overpriced, this was a good find! The motel is really 2 min from the airport... More
