This place was perfect for us. We had an early flight out and it was close to the KEF airport. The host left us clear instructions on how to access our room, but still met us there, very helpful and welcoming.

8/10 Very good

The room was small as was the bathroom. Had to move the toilet paper rack in order to fit into the shower. Shower had a flexible door. Those were the only real drawbacks other than the coffee creamer was old. The shower was very modern. Loved the shower heads! The room and the bathroom were extremely clean. Very very happy with cleanliness. The bed was very comfortable, and the accessories were color coded and modern. Not just generic cups and a plastic trash bin The coffee cups were very stylish. The entire room and bathroom was stylish. Perhaps the best part is the owner. She was so sweet and accommodating. Came down and talked with us twice. Give ArcticWind a go. I endorse it as a great place to lay your head down. One last thing, there is no tv, but we didn’t mind.

6/10 Good

While the owner is kind, this is not a hotel that I can recommend based on its remote location and overall feel. It said pool which is why we booked it and there is no pool. It is located in a business district where there are dumpsters filled with garbage. After a week of travel, this was a letdown.

Lovely stay near the water
Lovely area, clean and comfortable room. Monica and her husband were very friendly and helpful. Only negatives were no local conveniences if you are without your own transportation and the shuttle was not available for airport travel as mentioned on the ad.

Would definitely recommend staying at Arctic Wind! This the perfect place if you’re looking for a more lower cost option then staying at a hotel in Rekjyavík. The prices are very good in comparison to the usual cost of accommodations in Iceland during the summer. It’s conveniently located 15 mins from the airport, so it’s a great place to stay the night before an early flight. It’s also around a 40 minute drive to Reykjavík, so getting to the city is very easy. (It’s also very close the Blue Lagoon 15 min drive) The town where it’s located in is very quiet and small, so it’s a much better place to stay then in Rekjyavík if you don’t like the city environment. The 4 people family room was cozy, spacious and very clean. It had a fridge to store groceries, (eating out in Iceland is expensive so buying some Skyr or food at the grocery store is a good way to save money) table and chairs to sit and eat, and two queen sized beds. There is also a shared kitchen where you can cook meals and eat. (which is nice if you want to save money by not eating out) They also do offer breakfast for purchase. The owner Monica is a very nice person and super welcoming. We enjoyed spending time with her chit chatting. If we ever return to Iceland we would definitely stay again at Arctic Wind.

Arctic Wind
Arctic Wind is a lovely motel, and the manager was terrific, she was extremely helpful, ensuring that i had all information needed ahead of time and during my stay. The bed was comfortable and there was also a well equipped kitchen and washing machine for longer stays.

Great place to stay
A great place to stay for Keflavik airport or a visit to the volcano. Monika was really helpful with her advice about local sites and visiting the volcano. A great final two nights on our three weeks Iceland trip.
