We stayed at Guesthouse Odinn for our first night in Iceland. It was a great place to stay. The room was nice with a great view and very clean. The host was very generous to stay a little bit late to wait for us to check in and he offered great suggestions for dinner and breakfast. The guesthouse also had... More

Me and a group of friends visited Iceland and used the city as our base. The Hostel is amazingly clean and the staff are very friendly and unobtrusive. The rooms are large with comforable beds however the shared bathroom is on the cosy side but hey it's used for number 1/2s and showers so that doesn't matter. I would highly... More

This is an excellent guesthouse. A short walk to downtown Reykjavik and hallgrimskirkja. The host is kind, gracious, and helpful. The area is generally quiet. I have stayed here many times and have never had a less than excellent experience. My advice would be to take a taxi from the BSI terminal as that walk is a little long.

Cute and cozy guesthouse. Very clean, quiet and close to the center. They had a nice kitchen area you can use. You do have to share bathroom with other guests, but it was not even an issue as the place was kept very clean at all times.

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
