Impersonal boxy airport hotel. Only asset is walking distance from terminal. For what it is, it's fine. Didn't have dinner - ventured into keflavik town for that and wish we hadn't. Breakfast starts at five which works well given icelandair's ludicrous 2 hour check in and the fact that all flights leave in a one hour window from 7-8 a.m.... More

Stayed a night here as our flight is 7am in the morn. V convenient location as you can return car at night and stay there for a night, then walk to airport the next morning after having their breakfast which starts at 5am. Room is comfortable and clean.

Because of the strange flight times in Iceland, this airport hotel is popular, so be sure to book ahead of time. (We booked as our flight left Germany, and we got the last available room.) They offer a decent breakfast, and they let us stay after we checked out to read and enjoy some coffee before heading to the airport.... More

All I can say is, super convenient. My friends and I had a 6am flight out of Iceland. This is the one and only hotel at the airport so it was an obvious choice. We dropped our rental car off...walked about 500 feet and we were at the hotel. They have a bar and restaurant so we were able to... More

Our flight was 6:00 am from Keflavik on WOW airlines and we just needed a place convenient to the airport to stay the night before. We took the FLY BUS from Reykjavik Bus Station and were dropped off at Keflavik Airport. It is a very short walk to the hotel. Quick check in, friendly staff, and the room is new,... More

We had a short stay but it was comfortable and convenient. We were just there overnight to catch an early morning flight. We didn't get breakfast because we had to leave too early so can't speak to that.

I gave this 5* not because of luxury or the facilities but because it is walking distance to airport, clean modern and the nice person on the front desk found us a room at 05:30 when official check-in is at 14:00. It looks like it's the only hotel on the airport site. Reykavik is about 38k away so great for... More

The Airport Hotel Aurora Star carries its previous name, Airport Hotel Smari, on much of its signage. Not to be confused - one and the same hotel. Its best feature is proximity to KEF airport - literally in the back yard! Because you can walk to and from, it is most appealing for late night arrivals or early morning departures,... More

What more do you need if you are just staying over before the start or at the end of a trip or on a layover? this hotel is easy walking distance from the airport.
