The location is 3km far from the airport. Unfortunately getting here took us 20€ of taxi. But this is not Alex fault. The guesthouse is cool, well cleaned and good smelling. Host is really gentle. In high seasons periods reservation is a must!! Breakfast is rich and good tasting. If I'll get back to Iceland I'll consider to come back...

They have free transfer from and to the airport, it was the reason we chose this place. The transfer was very quick and on time. The rooms were very new, I think they just finished them the day before we arrived. I couls smell the NEW scent of everything. Very clean, lots of hot water in the bathrooms. The breakfast...

I had an early flight, so I decided to get room nearby the airport. Well, room itself was ok, but I've never been as noisy hostel! There was somebody talking, speaking on the phone or banging doors every 5-10 minutes in the hallway until 2 am! I had to wake up at 4 am, and the breakfast was a huge...

Great value for money, the rooms were clean as was the bathroom. The free shuttle service was handy, and a not far from the airport but far enough not to be bothered by planes. The beds were very comfortable!! The women who dropped us at the airport the next morning was so friendly and helpful. The most friendly hosts we've...

We stayed at triple room and its enough for us to open our 3 big luggages. The shared toilet is fine but I think its not enough when the guesthouse is fully booked. Besides, the door is not soundproof, you could hear clearly someone is opening the door/walking at the walkway. Like I said, its not alot of customer that...

This b&b is really nice, close to international airport and with connections to Reykjavik. We had a good welcome at the reception and we were explained how to reach Reykjavik and enjoy the life and art there. The room was essential, communal spaces (including showers and bathrooms) deep cleaned. Breakfast was good too. Really recommended.

Inexpensive guesthouse in a bleak neighbourhood near the airport with tiny rooms, basic beds and shared bathrooms. Included breakfast not great...cold meat, cheese and toast or cereal. Juices are ice cold which is a lovely treat. Coffee is awful but readily available. Front desk staff are very helpful and prompt and do their best to accommodate guests; whatever time of...

Close to the airport, but the cleanliness was poor. The chairs looked like a forensic experiment, leading us to seriously question the 'clean-enough' appearance of the tatty bed linen. A bed for the night and close to the airport, but I would not recommend Alex for more than a one night stay.

I wasn't sure about staying here since I had never stayed in a hostel before -but it was more than I expected! I got a family room for my stay which fit 4 of us perfectly. I did hope to stay in one of the cute cabins outside but right now they said they are closed for the winter. The...

did the job for a stay near the airport. the beds were quite comfortable and bathroom facilities very good. the pickup service is useful and only takes a few minutes. is a breakfast included which is very basic, bread wasnt fresh and there was no milk so couldnt have the cereal on offer.
