We stayed here during an 18-hour stopover at KEF. In addition to all the other good things written about this hotel, we were very grateful that the owners told us we could use our room all day, well beyond check-out time. This meant that we could go out and explore the Reykjanes peninsula in our hiking gear and return, windswept and a little grubby, to change into smarter clothes for traveling before our evening flight. This was in low season, and of course might not be a courtesy available when the hotel is busier.

The rooms were absolutely fantastic - clean, new, and well-maintained. Staff were very friendly and carefully explained the amenities and the breakfast arrangement in the morning. This is a gem along an otherwise dreary Keflavik waterfront.

We picked the Berg Hotel for our last night in Iceland. It is located in Keflavik so it is 10 minutes from the airport which is great when you have an early morning flight. The hotel does provide shuttle service but we had a rental car to return. We were planning to leave the hotel at 6:am but the manager advised us to get there a little earlier as the tour buses arrive at 6:00.
Great advice. We arrived at the Berg in the middle of a storm with gale force winds. The hotel has a very warm and welcoming lobby with tea and coffee. The poor weather had the guests huddled in the lobby, comparing travelling notes, and the time passed quickly. The rooms are modern and immaculate. There is free parking and free WiFi. There is a spectacular view of the Harbour. Enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: try and get a room facing the Harbour.

Lovely, new, small hotel in a residential area next to the 2nd (quieter) harbour of Keflavick. The owners do free transfers from the airport for all guests. Very comfortable rooms, good breakfast, good value. What mroe to say? Stay here on your way out of Iceland and you won't regret it

Hotel Berg was wonderful. We arrived late and our key was left for us. The room was spacious and clean. The rain shower was very nice. We woke up in the morning to a spectacular view of the harbor and a nice breakfast. I would definitely stay at Hotel Berg again.

We needed a place to spend the night for an early morning flight. Hotel Berg was conveniently located 10 mins from the airport, the room was quite decent and served its purpose. The owner left basic breakfast for us to have before our flight. Recommended for a stay close to the airport.

This is a great place to stay either on arrival before setting off into Iceland or the night(s) before departure. A modern house with a cosy feel and absolutely helpful and friendly owners. Our room featured a downstairs with sleeping room for two, fridge and an upstairs with a large television and double bed. The room was spotless and tastefully decorated. Everyting had been done to make the stay more pleasant with a large variety of DVDs and books of every kind in reception - we were made to feel like it was our own home for 2 days. Breakfast was continental as usual; they even offer pickup and dropoff at most times of the day to the airport from about 7am onwards. Nice view and great location overlooking the harbour. Much of Keflavik isn't very pretty but this part is just past the shopping area. After paying normal Iceland prices for two weeks, this was also amazingly good value for money at just over €100 per night for a triple room.
