It really is a nice place for a quick stop. I was there one night and was very comfortable.

Great place, if you need to be by hotel.
Great place if you need to be near KEF airport. They have hourly shuttles to/from Airport which is a short 10 min drive ( not for walking though ). Staff speaks English and they have a nice reception area with tables, board games, and food and drink for purchase. If you are planning on spending most of your time in Reyjavik, I would recommend you stay in Reyjavik. KEF is 60 min away by bus , and transportation is expensive in Iceland as a whole ( don't take taxis, airport to Base hotel is $35 ). . If you decide to over nite at this hote, then great choice, if you plan on staying multiple days, and have the time, Public transportation does get you to Reyjavik in 2 hrs, for about $24 per trip. Front desk has bus schedule. Take the line 1 at the stop down the street near the US fighter Jet Moment ( you'll know it when you see it). Then transfer to the 55 line. Bus driver will tell you where to get on and off. Tip- always have exact fare because drivers don't make change. Line 55 runs about $1900isk and line 1 runs about $480isk. Shuttle from hotel to KEF runs hourly, for about $600isk.

Fine place to stay for being close to the airport
A fine place to stay which is close to the airport; there is an airport shuttle that you can take to the airport for a small fee (600 ISK at the moment). There is a little bar and nice and clean common area. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who wants to be close to the airport. Note: There isn't loud airport traffic.

We chose the Base Hotel because it was convenient to Keflavik airport, and we had a 7:40 flight. Like the airport itself, the Base is a 24/7 operation. The room was basic but fine if you have no need to unpack, with neither closet nor dresser drawers. But we shared a bathroom with another room and they were up and using it at three in the morning before catching their early flight, forcing a bit of unwelcome mid-night delay for us... But on balance, it’s a good way to fly through Iceland, which is a great place to stop.
