If there was a way I could give less than one-star service to your place - I WOULD. SIMPLY APPALLING SERVICE by your reception staff. We booked for one night on 17 June 2015 at ALEX MOTEL GUESTHOUSE via booking.com. Before booking, we read ALL of the terms and conditions and it said clearly FREE SHUTTLE service to and fro...

I booked this place as my first nights accommodation in Iceland reading for my cycling adventure around the island. The staff were friendly and helpful, it has a small shop to buy some basics and plenty of maps to help kick start your trip. The shower and bed were however pretty basic, so don't expect en suite!!

If you are after a relatively cheap night's stay before or after a flight then look no further than Alexs guesthouse. You get 2 free taxis to and from the airport, even if you have just dropped off yours rental car they will come and collect.

We picked this hotel because it has an airport shuttle available pretty much any time (it has a schedule and you have to reserve the day before). Rooms are small and basic, and bathrooms are shared. Showers are tricky--the cubicle is tiny, and if you don't know what you are doing you can get scalded with hot water. Towels are...

This place is great! They picked us up at the airport & had a covered area at the back of the guesthouse for us to un-pack our bikes & store the boxes. We cycled off for a few days camping & stayed here on the last night. The guesthouse was well equipped with a well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms were...

Alex guesthouse was a very pleasant stay - included was breakfast and airport transfer and free coffee. The managing director, Einar who met us at reception (and is in the picture of their website) is very welcoming, helpful and was very patient with other guests as I observed. Beds were comfortable and toilets clean. We also used the kitchen to...

The rooms are basic (more like modern youth hostel style), but they are clean and there is just everything you need. Not a particularly charming place, but you probably choose this hotel for its location close to the airport. And this is just really convenient for late arrivals or early departures. The airport is in walking distance (20 min, no...

We stayed there in small cottage. For first view it was beautiful place but inside it was really bad place. There was quite cold in the toilet was not flushed an urine, dirty bad linen and a lot of hairs on the floor. The breakfast was poor, coffee as water. Libor&Lada, Prague

This is a great place for the airport and also for looking after stuff, arranging the cheapest car hire next door and the staff are a lovely friendly group who will help you with any plans and ideas for travelling around Iceland. A mixture of accommodation from rooms to little self catering huts. All clean and friendly. A bit 'motel'...

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,...
