We were a party of 6 that stayed at Alex right before our flight. We got back from our tour around 10pm that night and had a flight out at 7:40 so we took a 5:30 and 5:45 shuttle. Tip: Shuttles only have room for 8 people and because we checked in so late others have already signed up for...

Spent one night at the end of a 7 day holiday. Both my wife and I really enjoyed our stay, reception staff were great, thanks for the pick up from car rental and the free shuttle to the airport - even got a heads up on Northern Lights right side window from the driver. Well stocked kitchen and spotlessly clean...

I was booking the triple room for a layover option for my friends and I for the next morning's flight to Amsterdam from Keflavik at 6 AM and they are nothing but helpful to us. We had to return our car to the car rental place and they are willing to pick us up from the car rental despite us...

This place is a decent budget choice if you need to stay near the airport. The rooms are clean and comfortable and it is well equipped with self catering kitchen, free drop offs at the airport, decent showers, friendly staff, a small shop. Rooms are very good value and include breakfast.

Basic, clean and near airport. FYI: If they put in room #122 or #124 immediately ask for a different room these are a) next door to the guest kitchen, b) at the foot of a main staircase and c) angled so the outdoor spotlight near the main entrance shines right through the windows (the curtains are way too thin to...

I stayed in cabin 19 of Alex's guest house for 1 short night. My flight arrived at 1:40am and my connecting flight left a few hours later at 10:30am. They have a 24/7 shuttle service, a call is sufficient and they pick you up from the meeting point inside the KEF airport. The shuttle ride itself is only 5min, but...

Pros: The airport pickup was great (you meet him at big orange 'meeting place' sign). The room was clean and basic with a nice bed. And it turns out breakfast is epic -- there is meat and cheese and coffee and cereal... I'm surprised they don't advertise this more as it's good value. Cons: not a lot of walk-ability, but...

My husband and I stayed here for an overnight in mid June after arriving on a flight arriving around midnight. Our plan was to leave early the next day with a rental car towards Vik. I was apprehensive about a shared bathroom down the hall. This place was perfect for our limited needs. Alex Guesthouse offers a free shuttle service...

I stayed on night before a flight early in the morning. The place is convenient especially because it is near to the airport (5mn by car) and the guesthouse is providing free transportation from 4:30 to the airport. It is also close to restaurants outside. If needed à kitchen is available to prepare own meals. My quadruple room was basically...
