“Useful for airport. ”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 via mobile

Modern hotel situated right by the airport and car rentals. Breakfast is served from 5am which is excellent for early flights. The breakfast is included in the price and is of a good quality. Rooms very simply furnished.
If you don't have transport, then you are limited with how you spend your evening as it's not really in walking distance of town or restaurants. The hotel does serve a very limited menu and there is a very small shop at the airport.

Stayed February 2014, travelled as a couple

This hotel is very modern and clean and the staff were lovely. Icelandair lost our luggage and the night receptionist kindly lent us her own phone charger.

The hotel is in a really good location to the airport as it is only a short walk across the airport carpark. It was a very welcome sight from the doors of the airport on a cold, dark snowy morning. After a one-day stopover in Iceland it was also ideal for our early morning flight next day. They even serve breakfast to fit in with early flights.

The international airport for Reykjavik is at Keflavik about 45 minutes away so Airport Hotel Smari would not be a good base for a Reykjavik holiday. However for the convenience of an early flight or a short stopper it is perfect.

There's nothing fancy about this place but it's perfectly situated across the road form the airport (early walking distance with luggage...Even in January). The staff was friendly and helpful and the beds comfortable. We did have two twin beds for my husband and I... The the perfect set up but fine for one night. Sadly the in room Wifi is hit and miss. It works if you stand in just the right spot. And the hardwood floor in the room needed a good scrubbing. My white socks were super dirty quickly. The restaurant is nothing to right home about. But again, it's very convenient and more cheerful that a lot of other airport hotels I've seen. I'd stay there again to catch an early flight.

My wife and I stayed here at the end of our Iceland trip. It's location within walking distance from the terminal building makes it an ideal choice for those who have an early morning flight out (our flight was at 7:00 am) and it would work exactly as well who arrive very late in the evening and want to rest a bit before starting their exploration of the island.
The check-in staff was friendly and efficient, the room impeccable, the bathroom fully functional and the breakfast great. I didn't find anything to complain about.

The hotel is very close to the airport which is a great advantage for anyone staying for 1 night in Iceland. If you will stay in Iceland for couple of days, it's best not to stay in this hotel since the closest city is 10 minutes away by car (will cost you around 10 euros to get there by taxi).

The room and the bathroom were big but only had the necessities which was enough for me. The bed was small and not very comfortable.

The hotel is barely 200m away from the main departure terminal. Its location was brilliant. I returned my car to Thrifty car rental which is just behind the building and walked back to the hotel. The rooms are comfortable and minimal, very functional, everything works fine, just dont expect it to be a world class leading hotel. Its sole purpose is for early flights/late flights into or out of iceland.

We had room 302, it was facing the terminal, that night the wind was howling and we could hear the wind noise and aircraft noises from the airfield, it was noisy, but we werent too bothered by it, we slept through it. So for those light sleepers, pls ask them for another room that faces away from the airport, preferably rooms with odd numbers.

Breakfast was served from 5am onwards to 10am, which was good of them as our flight out was at 730am. We paid 99 Euros a night for the stay, it was well worth it considering how early our flight was and it took us to drag our lugggages across the road and we took 3-5 mins to walk to the departure terminal.

Good location, dont forget, dont expect more than a 3 star hotel.

Room Tip: Even numbered rooms faces the airfield which could be noisy for some light sleepers. Choose odd numb...

Stayed here for one night in October. It's all very basic, Ikea furniture, neon lights in bathroom and really no frills. Breakfast very basic too. There don't seem to be any places to eat in the area - not even in the terminal - so ordered a burger which was fine.
It's very close to the terminal but it's not very evident which way to walk.
All in all, not in any way luxurious but it does the job.
