“Annex to Hotel Keflavik”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

This Review is mostly for the Hotel across the street (same owners), but the Guesthouse is an annex building with a few rooms, and you have access to the main hotel.
About a 5-10 minute cab ride from the airport. They will let you check in early for a fee, if rooms available. Useful for early morning arrivals. The hotel will pay the van for 1 cab ride to or from the airport, you may have to pay for 1 way. No way you could walk from airport in under 45 min, and there is no sidewalk along the busy road. Hotel is in downtown of small village of Keflavik. Great front desk staff, they helped us with a lost luggage claim, directions, printing boarding passes, buy postcards, etc. Hotel is quiet. Gym in basement floor with sauna. Breakfast is a buffet and is included in the room. Basic meat, cheese, hard boiled eggs, coffee, some pastry. They have a restaurant open evenings. Next door is a BP station with 24 hour convienence store, quiznos subs counter, etc. 5 min walk to seaside path, to KFC, Dominos, there is a department store in main square, Icelandair hotel with bar and restaurant. Small elevator, lounge for TV on top floor with balcony. Smoking outside only. Small business lounge. TV in several languages, good reception. Wifi OK in lobby and rooms. free. Euro recepticles, (2 round posts). No hair dryers nor irons in rooms. Clean, comfortable. I was there end of June, so Daylight all the time. Nice blackout curtains on windows. Blue lagoon trip can be arranged from front desk, you prepay, they reserve it and bus picks you up out front. Must reserve a few hours ahead for this pick up.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night in late June when we arrived into Keklavik airport after midnight. The guesthouse is located across the road from Hotel Keflavik, but they're owned by the same company. The guesthouse is a simple lodging with shared central area and two bathrooms (one shower), with bedrooms adjacent to the main room.

While the guesthouse accomodation is nothing special, you get to walk over to the hotel which is rather luxurious with really helpful staff, and have a great buffet breakfast. I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to explore Keflavik or a budget, or coming in from a late flight.

I'm not used to sharing a bath while traveling, so it's hard to evaluate this vs. a traditional hotel. The room was fine, if Spartan. Floor of shower is slippery and I have a bruise to prove it. Breakfast at the hotel across the street is quite tasty.

Our family had booked the guest house because the main hotel was sold out. On arrival we were told that the shuttle (reimbursement for taxi ride) was only for hotel guests not "guest house" guests. A room for 2 adults and 2 children had only 2 single beds so we had to add an additional room. Settled in to sleep when a loud rock band started playing at 930pm into the night. No idea where it was - Above the guest house rooms or outside somewhere but the bass was not a lullaby. Definitely a great breakfast and after a lovely brisk walk to the ocean we paid for another taxi back to the airport. It was a required overnight stay that challenges the economy of Icelandair. Think twice before going this route.
