I was only in Keflavik because I was flying early, but after 2 nights in mediocre Reykjavik accommodation, this came as a very pleasant surprise. Golden Circle coach tours run from Keflavik which, had I realised, would have left Reykjavik with one night at most. While the single room is quite small, everything else from the warmth of the welcome... More

We stayed here our first night, arriving around midnight, and received a very warm welcome from Dagmar. Our room (the en-suite double) was comfortable and we weren't disturbed by other guests. The shared sitting area was comfortable and the wifi efficient. The DIY breakfast provided everything we needed, and it was fun to discuss our plans with the friendly family... More

The perfect overnight stop very close to Keflavik Airport! Since many people leave early in the morning you get a self service breakfast provided in the well equipped common kitchen. Our doubleroom had comfortable beds and a little washbasin so that you don't have to wait for the shared bathroom every time. The guesthouse is prettily decorated and totally clean... More

We can't praise Dagmar and her wonderful guesthouse too highly. Everything was great. We stayed in the double room with en suite bathroom which was well worth the little extra cost. There's a large shared sitting area with good wifi and lots of info on local attractions. The kitchen is well equipped and we loved the do it yourself breakfast... More

Svitan Guesthouse is situated in Keflavik, which is just a few minutes drive to the airport. We stayed here during our last night for our 7 full days Iceland trip. We were checked in swiftly and the lady who checked us in was very friendly and helpful when we needed help. As we were leaving the next day and would... More

Svitan gusthouse surprised we by it's rating - higher than 9! Rather unusual for such a small town as Keflavik. And this mark is understandable! Svitan guesthouse is a very very cosy guesthouse with just 3 rooms. I need to mention, that house is rather big - it has vast living room with extremely soft sofas and TV, big range... More

The guesthouse was a 5 minute drive from the airport. The host is very nice. She sent us back to the airport early in the morning at 6am. The place is tidy and cosy. It is very thoughtful that the room has a private sink despite having a shared bathroom. Totally value for money! The only downside is that without... More

This was perfect for our last night in Iceland. We had a campervan rental for 13 days but had to drop off the camper and stay an extra night before our morning flights. We were even able to check in early which was good as we could leave our bags and go walking. There is a nice walk along the... More
