A great little guesthouse walking distance from downtown Reykjavik. The owner was very helpful; including responding quickly to emails, printing out paperwork for our car rental to booking transfers. The rooms were clean and modern albeit a little cozy. Shared bathrooms were spotless. Lovely little kitchen to eat breakfast and make coffee in.

stayed at this guesthouse in March, arrived at noon and the room was ready, nice big room next to the kitchen. The shared bathroom was never a problem, never waited for one once..the owner was nice..the location of the guesthouse is great, 5 minute walk to main shops/bars and restaurants..will stay here again if I go back to Reykjavik.

My sister and I stayed here for 5 days in August. The manager was attentive, including responding quickly to all email inquiries before arrival, and he cares about the needs of his guests. The guesthouse is exceptionally clean and the daily breakfasts were filling with plenty of variety. It is also an easy walk to all the downtown and main... More

We stayed at Guesthouse Odinn two times during our stay in Iceland, beginning and end of our trip. Our hosts were welcoming and very helpful. Thank you! The guesthouse is within walking distance to all the main sights in Reykjavik. Breakfast was good and the view from the breakfast room was bright and pleasant. The house is clean and comfortable....

We have stayed 4 nights in this guesthouse. Rooms are pretty small but well arranged. Rooms located on the inner courtyard are less noisy. 2 kitchens are dedicated for the guests. The guesthouse is really in Reykjavik downtown and you can visit the city from this "camp base" Owners are very helpful.

We were very happy with our three nights at Guesthouse Odinn, for the quality of the accommodation, the ideal central location close to shopping and within walking distance of all the attractions we visited. Our room was very nice with a small balcony overlooking the inner courtyard, comfortable bed, bathroom with a view of Hallgrimskirkja tower. We liked the very... More

We stayed in an apartment for 4 people in earl august 2014 and this was by far the best accommodation during our visit to Iceland. There was some problems regarding the way of paying for our stay but staff were very helpful and accommodating in that regard.

He'd a fabulous time staying at the guest house. The kitchen facilities had all the things that you would plus more. Everything was very clean, no dirt anywhere. It has a great location, close to everything by walking. I would recommend this guest house to everyone I know. Please stay here you will have a wonderful time.

A friendly, family-run guesthouse in central Reykjavik. It's bright, clean and well-maintained. The rooms are compact (as is typical of the Icelandic guesthouse). Breakfast is served in a lovely, sunny (over summer, I haven't experienced winter!) room, a very pleasant start to the day. We've stayed here several times before, and rate it the best guesthouse we've stayed in, in... More

We really liked staying at this quiet and hospitable B&B. We got the apartment down the street from the main Guesthouse and despite a midnight arrival from London, we were warmly greeted and shown to our rooms. The lodging is very convenient for the bus station, car rentals, and excellent shopping in the city center. The apartment was clean, spacious,... More
