This property was amazing. My friends and I had a great trip here. The cabin was warm and cosy despite it being -4 outside. The hot tub was great and we were in it every night. The owners were welcoming and very helpful especially with helping us get the fire started. Would and have recommended it to friends.

Guesthouse Odinn is a lovely little guesthouse right in the centre of Reykjavik. The rooms are pretty and functional and there are 3 or 4 rooms sharing the bathroom and a kitchen. Everything is clean, the breakfast is served in a room with a view over the city and the owners are very friendly. A great place to stay and coming back to after a day of exploring Reykjavik and its surroundings.

Went here because I first visited as a student 30 years ago when it was a youth hostel. Pleasant enough and reasonably good value as a guesthouse by Icelandic standards. Nothing really excellent but everything pretty consistently good. Host attempted (unsuccessfully) to have the car hire firm collect us from the guesthouse and take us to their office.

Well maintained and clean bedrooms and bathrooms, great breakfast spread included in price, owner went out of the way to assist me e.g. calling tour company when bus was late and upgrading me when I returned for second stay to their other house. Very trusting environment where you have the run of the guesthouse as if it was your home.

This guest house was perfect, the land lady was just great, and her husband was very helpful. The place was always spotless and very well situated. Great base to start your travels for Iceland. In the back yard theres a hot tub, which is such a great way or winding down after a long day of exploring Reykajvik.

The room was immaculate and very cozy. There is a deck to hang out on and the beach is 5 min walk away. The owners are extremely generous and helpful. The #12 bus is right across the street to take you into town. It runs every half hour.

I liked the size of the rooms,the comfort of the beds, the very generous tasty breakfast, the availability of hot drinks 24/7 and the well-equipped kitchen available for use. Aurora is sited near to the big church in Reykjavik so it's impossible to get lost. Its very convenient for all activities.
