Athena Guesthouse
Ranked #54 of 109 Reykjavik B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 26, 2012

Here's my note (below) to Egill our host. We are a couple that stayed in June 2012 at Athena Guesthouse. It's in a quite neighbourhood and we like to go out and be loud and come back to a place to rest. Athena worked well for us. Happy travels.

Egill,

Your hospitality and great guesthouse location MADE our 4 day/4 night holiday.

Less than 10 minutes to town and harbour, less than 5 minutes to a pool or run along the coast. Close to shop and pharmacy. Great location.

The service was great. Thoughtful and helpful you make a great host with professional service - thank you.

If you would like me to comment on any other aspects of your service I am happy to do so and to support a business like yours.

Thank you

Room Tip: We had the front room with two single beds made into a double. We slept well and enjoyed sitting out...

You'll feel very welcome at Athena Guesthouse! I've had a great stay there, two summers in a row, and I stay there because of the friendliness of the owners, the cleanliness, and the great location. The owners are very kind and go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay. You get a lot of value for your money.
The rooms were bright, newly renovated, and very clean! Breakfast was plentiful and included fresh fruit! There were always snacks and coffee/tea available. You get your own shelf in the fridge and access to the fully-equipped kitchen too (which was also always very clean). The location is in a peaceful neighbourhood just minutes from the downtown/harbour area. It is close to the BSI bus terminal, the National Museum, the University, and the Tjornin too! I plan to stay there again, the next time I visit Reykjavik.

Room Tip: I've stayed in rooms on either side -if they don't have a balcony, they have a lovely view...
