“Wonderful stay at Guesthouse Odinn”
Reviewed 8 November 2012

My teenage son and I spent three perfectly comfortable nights at Guesthouse Odinn at the end of August. We arrived very very late from New York City on a Thursday night and were graciously greeted by our host, Olafur, despite the horribly inconvenient hour. (We learned that it is a very good idea to inform Olafur of an off hour arrival time before arrival!) Our room was located in the rear cottage fronted by a wonderful garden. It was perfectly clean and totally cozy. We were amazed to be in such a quiet spot right in the center of Reykjavik, central to many cultural and historic sites. Breakfast was delicious and ample. Olafur was very helpful with local insights and suggestions. We will happily return to Guesthouse Odinn on our next -- hopefully soon -- visit to Rekjavik.

We spent 4 nights at the Odinn, 4 one night stays and each time we left , we were able to store luggage with the owner till we reappeared. The place was immaculate and the breakfasts were very good. Plus the owner was helpful. He stayed up till 1:30am to let us in when we arrived on a very late flight.

The only warning I would give would be to not have rooms on the street side if you are staying there on a Friday or Saturday night - way too noisy with all the bar carousers going by.

Room Tip: Make sure you don't get a room on the street side on a Friday or Saturday night - or bring very...

I found this guesthouse on trip advisor and glad I chose it. Olafur is a wonderful host, quiet but very friendly. The guesthouse is impeccably clean. The rooms are basic and comfy. Breakfast offered a wide selection even for the vegetarians. Guests also have access to a full kitchen. We went to the local market and cooked dinner last night. Location could not be any better. Walk down Odinsgata and you are in the heart of everything. If you want an affordable option instead of an expensive hotel, stay here. Hope to return again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the top level. You may here street noise if revelers are out, otherwise it was quiet an...

Right in the centre but away from the noise. Spotlessly clean and a decent breakfast with a nice view. The owners are friendly and helppful. Not a luxury treat but good for a short stay or transfer night.
Dropped off and picked up from/to the airport.

We stayed four nights at the guesthouse in a family room for four. The place is quite simple but spotlessly clean, does a decent breakfast and has a good location on a relatively quiet street but right by the centre of Reykjavik. Free car-parking is just up the road and we always found a spot within 200 metres. I would certainly consider this place if and when I visit Reykjavik again.

Room Tip: The family rooms are slightly varied in size as we had a larger room on the day we were flying out f...

Thank you to Olafur for his hospitality! This guesthouse is very clean and its location is the best. The only thing I would say is try to get a room around the back. It was loud on one night, a Thursday/Friday, around 2 a.m. when people were passing by, several small groups that is. This is not the fault of the guesthouse and everything within their control was well done. We found Olafur (and the other guests) very friendly and had several conversations and shared stories of travel. Our room was simple and comfortable. The breakfast was plenty, including excellent coffee. We would absolutely stay here again...which is the best recommendation I can offer! We love Iceland and Reykjavik!

We just had a wonderful 2 night stay at the Odinn Guesthouse. Olafur is very welcoming, and runs a very clean and comfortable guesthouse. We also enjoyed the breakfast and kitchen facilities. The location is close to all the local Reykjavik sights and is a pick up point for tours. An excellent location and a great place to stay!
