We enjoyed our stay at this small keflavik hotel on the main street of the town. We had originally intended to stay here only one night before our flight, but decided to add a night as a base for reykjavik as well. It worked out well for us, it's only 30-40 minutes from the city on an excellent road. 15 minutes drive from the blue lagoon.
The staff are really nice, helped us out with our online flight check-in (printing the boarding passes), booked taxis, very friendly and had loads of advice about the area. The rooms are clean, a bit plain, all white. Good showers, tiled bathroom. Help yourself buffet breakfast, with toaster available too. Standard continental breakfast, hot bacon was also available.
Parking is available across the street. There is a restaurant next door, supermarket up the street, and some bars outside too. View from our window was of the sea.
Taxi to the airport cost 1800kr (around 10euro?), and saved us a days rental of around 130 euro, as we dropped off the rental car the night before our flight.
Curtains are semi-blackout, so decent sleep. Twin beds again (seems to be the norm in iceland) but there are doubles available in some rooms here when we asked, they just had been taken by other people first. Fair enough, we were looking for a last-minute room at 10pm.
A very good hotel, well priced.
