This guesthouse is the 2nd closest place to the airport and it's also what they are here for. Yes there is another hotel right next to the terminal, but you pay the price. The guesthouse is also a bit more expensive for Icelandic standards, but it's a good alternative in case you want to sleep during an overnight aircraft transfer,...

Convenient if you arrive late at airport - rooms ok a bit on the basic side breakfast also a little basic but who cares as this is a transit hotel anyway not much to say as it serves its purpose and is worth a stop. Only annoying thing is the noise of the floor and the doors...

so convenient! we stayed there 1 night when we just landed in Iceland in the middle of the night. It was not very clear as where in the airport was the gathering point waiting for the shuttle. Clean and easy, simply breakfast. All we needed for one night stay, pretty good value.

This was the closest hostel to the airport, and obviously geared up for people leaving and arriving at all hours. We stayed in one of the cabins outside with its own bathroom and a heap of space to sort our gear. It was clean and tidy with basic kitchen utensils so we could cook. Only niggle was the heater in...

You get what you pay for. Close to airport. Clean rooms. 20 min walk to restaurant in Keflavik. We didn't try their breakfast so I can't have any opinion about that. Fairly noisy at night while you here everyone entering the wooden indoor stairs.

Clean, basic accommodation. Did the job for the night but worth noting that the walls are paper thin. Our room was right next to the shared bathroom and you could hear EVERYTHING! Not great when you have to get up at 5.30am for a flight. The staff were polite and friendly. Breakfast was ok, again pretty basic. Shuttle bus to...

Staff were soooo nice and helpful, and that free airport service is the best!!!! Cabin was cute and breakfast great. Highly recommend!!! ***Note: airport service from the airport means you call them from the airport, and they will come get you ( not an hourly shuttle or something). Going to the airport, sometimes yes they do have a shuttle leaving...

This is a typical airport hotel - conveniently located cca 3 minutes of drive from the airport. Free shuttle is provided. We had a room with shared bathroom - very basic, very clean. Breakfast was basic as well. But it suits to its purpose.

We stayed here for 1 night after a late arrival. As this is a guesthouse mostly for travellers with late or early flights, rooms are small and functional. However, they also offer small cottages - for longer stays, I guess. A big plus was the free transport service from the airport - even if you arrive in the middle of...

We arrived to Keflavik at the end of our journey and we booked our room for the very last moment. Rooms are quite nice, maybe not extremely clean but you can manage (we found some empty plastic bottle under bed in one room and apple core in the other room. Apart from that we couldn't complain. Breakfast was OK for...
