So glad we found this place. It's in a great location - less than 10 minutes to all the bars & restaurants. The owner is super friendly & helpful - he gave lots of good suggestions of where to go in Iceland. The rooms were clean & comfortable & the self-serve breakfast was terrific.

We stayed at Athena Guesthouse our first night in Reykjavik, our first night in Iceland, in mid May 2014. The guesthouse occupies the main floor of a two story building. We were happy and lucky, as it was not yet high season, to be able to have an early check in as our plane had arrived early in the morning.... More

It is also a short walk to the seaside and a beautiful walking trail. Breakfast is included otherwise it is self catering. Luckily there is a small grocery store up the street where... More

Athena guesthouse was an unexpected jewel in our trip to Iceland - when we first decided to book rooms there, we were a little bit nervous about what it was going to be like staying at a private guesthouse, instead of a larger hotel, as we usually do during travel, but our anxiety was laid to rest as soon as...

I stayed in Athena guesthouse in August 2012. It is about a 10minute walk to the main town and is situated in a quiet neighbourhood. So it is a great location. The guesthouse is spotless! That is one of the main things I am fussy about when it comes to accommodation but this place was really nice. Even though the... More
