I had reserved a single room with private bath and a balcony. I ended up with a very small single room on the main floor next to the entry way, with the bathroom adjacent to a room outside the bedroom room that was a kitchen which was shared with two other rooms, although they were not occupied so it was...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Room with ensuite modern and comfortable.Breakfast more than adequate. Olafur, the manager,was friendly and very helpful when we had to rebook our flights due to the aircraft mechanic's strike. Close to downtown,could walk everywhere.Separate kitchen was a bonus if one wanted to cook your own meals or make lunches.

We enjoyed 6 nights in a wonderful 2 bedroom apartment managed by Guesthouse Odin. It is a short walk from the main guesthouse. Olafur, the manager, was very helpful. The apartment was well appointed with wired and wi-fi internet access, a full kitchen, and a washing machine (no dryer). Reyjkjavik was a delightful city with friendly people, good food, and... More

I stayed here for one week in the winter, over New Year's. The proprietors, Ole and Jennie, were super nice and helpful. The place is spotlessly clean, linens are fresh, and the heating system works like clockwork. They even make everyone take off their shoes on the ground floor as to keep the place tidy. The bathrooms are spacious enough... More

When we were in Iceland in August we stayed 4 nights at this guesthouse. It was very convenient and close to the centre of town but in a quiet street. Breakfast was provided each day. It was clean and comfortable. I would recommend this guesthouse.

If you pick the wrong place to stay in Reykjavik on a summer weekend, you may not get much sleep. The city's weekend party scene is boisterous and lasts all night. The Guesthouse Odinn, just off Skolavordustigur, one of the nicest streets in the city, is friendly and clean. Olafur is a gold mine of information. I plan to stay... More

We started our visit to Iceland here. It was in a great location with very quiet and comfortable rooms. It is being renovated and should have an excellent breakfast room when it is done. Nice view of the church from our room. Very friendly owner.

Really enjoyed our stay at the Guesthouse Odinn. It is an ideal central location. The rooms are clean and comfortable and there are good kitchen facilities available. The owner is very friendly and helpful, assisting us with bookings and information. Would recommend!

A lovely place to spend a night... friendly owner, beautifully designed rooms, private baths, and a very clean and cozy place. They don't take credit cards, but accept just about anything else. The location is in the heart of central Reykjavik and there is plenty of free parking on the streets nearby. Wished we'd have been able to stay for... More

Pros: Amazing location, really can't be better. Parking isn't an issue either. Clean, comfortable beds. Bathrooms are clean. Wifi works well. Cons: Needs some WD-40. Everything creaks and if you have noisy people near you they can and will keep you up. Breakfast is ok, nothing amazing but being included is a plus. Nice place to stay for a few... More
