Airport Hotel Aurora Star

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is a quick walk from Keflavik international airport. We arrived from Italy after 1:00am and needed a place close by and easy to get to. This was it. (I did the research in advance and booked it. No other options I could find.) The staff was friendly and helpful, even at 2:00am.

short stopover helpful crew was able to print paper ticket

Can't beat this place if you are getting in to KEF late at night. You can walk to it from the airport, and at 1 AM that means a lot. The place is pretty basic but the staff are very nice and friendly. A good easy start to an Icelandic vacation.

perfect for an early flight Just a few steps from the airport

Within walking distance from the airport. We arrived at midnight and stayed at the hotel overnight. It was much better than driving 45 minutes to Reykavick.

Great place to lay your head for a 8 hour lay over.

Stopped over in Iceland for a day on way from US to Europe. The hotel is walking distance to the airport. Hotel and airport are surrounded by tundra - a natural serene landscape. There is good bus connection from the airport to Reykjavik. The hotel was clean, modern and quiet, with superb friendly staff who spoke excellent English and German. Visiting Reykjavik for a day, and then flying out the next was easy, the walk from the hotel to the airport is a few minutes.

I chose this hotel as a great place when spending my 18 hour layover in Iceland. I spent 8 hours at the Blue Lagoon. The hotel allowed me to hold my luggage there until check in time and provided the breakfast included the same day since the was departing the same evening instead of the following morning. I appreciate the hotel for its convenient location, flexibility and overall great place to take a nap, shower and refresh before hopping on my connecting flight.

Very near the airport as it is only 10 minutes walking distance. Room is quiet though it is near airport. Breakfast is free and food is fresh.

The location of this hotel is ideal if you have a late night arrival or early morning departure. It is easily walkable from the airport (about 200 meters). You can take advantage of the airport transfers into the city if you want to explore. Also, friendly staff and clean room.

I was skeptical initially because the hotel didn't have any reviews. We were arriving late and didn't feel like driving anywhere else, so we just tried this place. You can't beat the location if flying in or out. I could practically throw a rock and hit the airport terminal. We were so please that we stayed there the night before we flew out also. Both visits the staff was extremely friendly and helpful (the whole country seems to be friendly though), the room was clean, breakfast was good, and the internet worked. And again, the location was great.
