“Wonderfull hotel/guesthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Stayed for just 1 night before an early flight in the morning, wish that we spent some more time. This has been the nicest place we stayed in during our iceland trip.

The hotel is small and feels like a home. Very personal, nicely decorated and with excellent rooms. The hotel is new, opened in 2011, everything is beautifully styled with taste, very warm interiors. The box spring bed was outstanding (a nice change compared to the average icelandic bed we slept in).
The personal we met was extremely friendly and helpfull. They did their utmost to make our short stay comfortable. The owner, a very nice lady, gave us some usefull tips for some day trips on the peninsula. Other services: very early breakfast from 4 am, free use of ipad, coffeemachine, parking, etc. 5 min drive from the airport, nice harbour view.
Opposite of the hotel was a very good restaurant, specialised in fresh fish. It was referred to as the 'best restaurant in town' and that proved to be true. We ate our best diner overthere in a very cosy atmosphere.

All in all a short but wonderful stay. A very nice last day of any iceland trip. I can surely recommend this small hotel. Next trip to iceland we will certainly stay here again

Seriously, I thought from the reviews that this place would be cute, but it was even better than expected. The staff went out of their way to make us feel at home and to help us with transport from the airport and to Reykjavik, there's a on-demand coffee/tea/cocoa machine that you can use 24/7, breakfast was a nice variety of traditional Icelandic breakfast foods (including waffles--which are almost stroopwafel thin and perfect for spreading with Nutella), and the room was very spacious and clean.

We ended up staying in a suite, which had the "bedroom" in a loft overhead, a small sitting room with huge ground-floor windows over the tiny harbor, and a nicely-sized bathroom. We kept saying that if there was just a little kitchen tucked away somewhere, it'd be the perfect city apartment: small but very homey and functional.

The only thing I can mention that might be a negative for some folks is that the candles or potpourri that they have throughout the hotel--it almost smells like strong air freshener in a car where someone's trying to cover up cigarette smoke, so there was this weird constant feeling that someone had been smoking there (even though I'm sure they weren't). I'm probably the only person it would ever bother, though, but if you're ultra-sensitive to scents, you might want to keep it in mind.

Highly recommended!

Room Tip: If it's in your budget to get a suite, I'd recommend it, especially if you're staying mo...

Amazing place. Having stayed elsewhere in Keflavik before I was blown away by the quality and friendliness of this hotel. It is situated close to the sea in an extremely quiet part of the town. It used to be (and still is) the owners home, but they have extended it with high quality funishings. I stay a lot in hotels and don't sleep very well, but I slept amazingly well in the comfortable bed.

No need to look elsewhere for a hotel in Keflavik!

Room Tip: Room 12 was fantastic.

I've travelled all over the world and I can honestly say this is one of the best places I have ever stayed. Its a little family run B&B type place and there's a free airport shuttle which is fantastic especially as we dragged the lady out at stupid o clock at night. Easy check in, happy for us to pay at any stage of our stay (stayed 3 nights) and just seemed genuinely happy to have us there. The breakfast is really good and certainly filled you up for the day (make your own waffles, different meats, breads, cakes, fruit, etc), and the room and bathroom was of a very good standard. I'd say this is much more than just a one night airport hotel - if you want to visit Iceland it's so easy to get to the Blue Lagoon, Golden Circle and Reykjavik (which I didn't go much on anyway), or any other place in Iceland. The town is very quaint with good food and I'm much happier we decided to stay here instead of the capital. All around we're very happy with our stay!

We stayed at the hotel Berg because of a flight error and needed a place to stay close to the airport. We had just spent 3 nights at a 4 star luxury hotel and found this one even more enchanting and comfortable. Owners are very acommodating and warm, hotel is sparkling clean and new with high end fixtures and lovely decor. Price is so low for what you get. Run there before they get too famous!!

Perfect location for Blue Lagoon and if you have an early flight from Keflavik airport. A room for two people per night €80.00. Good value for money. The hotel is brand new, nice decor. Amazing shower and super comfortable bed. Staff really friendly and helpful. They offer a transfer to the airport and they have free parking for your car. Nice view on the small harbour. I loved relaxing in their living room where there's 24h free coffee and tea. Breakfast is served from 4am and there's anything more you need, also a waffle maker! Simply book it and it will be the best beginning or end to your holiday!

Room Tip: Room #3, nice and cosy. Comfortable bed.

Hotel Berg is a small hotel where we've stayed one night right after we've arrived in Iceland. It was just a 10 minute drive from the Keflavik airport and although we arrived after midnight, we received a very warm welcome. Our room was clean with a nice view to the harbor. After a short night, we took the breakfast at the buffet which comprises of cold and warm food - all very tasty. Parking is right in front of the hotel.
