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. Both my wife and I really enjoyed our stay, reception staff were great, thanks for the pick up from car rental and the free shuttle to the airport - even got a heads up on Northern Lights right side window from the driver. Well stocked kitchen and spotlessly clean...

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.

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...

I stayed in cabin 19 of Alex's guest house for 1 short night. My flight arrived at 1:40am and my connecting flight left a few hours later at 10:30am. They have a 24/7 shuttle service, a call is sufficient and they pick you up from the meeting point inside the KEF airport. The shuttle ride itself is only 5min, but...

Pros: The airport pickup was great (you meet him at big orange 'meeting place' sign). The room was clean and basic with a nice bed. And it turns out breakfast is epic -- there is meat and cheese and coffee and cereal... I'm surprised they don't advertise this more as it's good value. Cons: not a lot of walk-ability, but...
