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.

The staff at Alex is absolutely amazing. We stayed there the last night before a trip abroad and parked our car in their lot during our trip. When we got back we had car troubles. My husband spent four hours trying to fix the car before giving up and booking appointment at a nearby garage. The staff was extremely helpful....

This is the perfect spot to spend your last or first day in Iceland..the rooms are neat and clean..the shared bathroom and toilets were also very clean..we loved the place.. If your chances are good, there is a chance you might see the northern lights as well.

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.

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.

Very friendly staff. My room had a sink, window, desk, tile floors, desk lamp and bedside table, twin beds. Showers and w/c close by. Breakfast served starting at 4:30. Shuttle to and from airport. Busy street on one side, departure runway opposite.

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...
