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 little light in December. Our only regret was not bringing Yaktrax (trademark for over the shoe ice traction aids). We will return near the summer solstice in a future year

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 and always clean. The kitchen was spartan and very neat.

The location is very central to the whole city, just a seven-minute walk to either downtown Reykjavik, the bus station, or the visitor's center. However, it's nestled just off the two busiest streets, giving you peace and quiet when you need it. I really lucked out with this place.

Room Tip: They are currently building balconies on the south side -- so book there!

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 there again my next trip to Iceland.

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.

Room Tip: Ask for the private facilities on level two, facing the church.
