Stayed at Alex guesthouse the night before our very early flight out of KEF. We're family of 4, with 9 and 7 year old kids. The guesthouse was pretty good. They offer free shuttle to the airport, complimentary breakfast that's served very early, like 4am. Very convenient when you have to catch and early flight. The rooms were clean, pretty...

stayed here on the last night of our trip because of proximity to airport but this would be a great stay regardless. Cabins are cozy and cute. Cooking area with mini fridge. Was quiet even close to airport. Would definitely stay here again

Basic accommodation, small but adequate. Close to the airport and with a convenient 24h shuttle service. 20min trip to the Blue Lagoon - good for a one night layover but quite expensive for just that.

Basic accommodation, small cabin, comfortable bed, no tea, coffee etc. Broken shower so if we had felt inclined we'd have had to hold the rose. No trolley available so had to drag heavy suitcases to No5 over lava gravel. Shuttle to airport very handy.

We found Alex Guesthouse when we were in need of a place to stay during an overnight layover from Boston to London. Just a short 10 minute shuttle ride, the friendly staff picked us up at the airport and checked us in quickly. We managed to land one of the several wooden cabins available. The cabin was clean and cozy....

This place is near the airport, which means that it is 45km from Reykjavik. That may be an advantage if you need to catch a plane first thing in the morning, but it has few other advantages. It is difficult to get to Reykjavik, and taxis are expensive. The only place to eat nearby is a hamburger joint which shares...

We had hut 11. It was incredibly windy the hut rattled a lot and there was a cold draft up the side of the bed but once the radiator had warmed it we got off to sleep and caught our flight early next day. Great for convenience (for anything more you might consider looking elsewhere but that's probably not why...

Guesthouse Alex isn't fancy, but clean and adequate. It is very close to the airport and there is a free airport shuttle. Breakfast is included and starts at 4:30 if you have an early flight. We received excellent customer service from Alex (not the eponymous Alex) at the front desk.

Stayed a night in their cottage while leaving the Iceland. Cottage has a small kitchen facility including kitchen utensils, a shower facility, a two bed facility and a small divan and small dinning table. Very nicely designed inside the room. Adjacent building is Procar office for car rental. They have free airport shuttle facility which starts from 4am. Airport is...

Booked on the day of arrival, met at the airport very late at night, checked in quickly to basic but cosy cottage. Heat on on arrival, breakfast nothing to write home about but perfect stop over accommodation at a fraction of airport hotel cost. Would stay again
