Nice boutique hotel in the center of ReykjavikPosted Jul 26, 2016
Pros: The hotel had an ideal location, just a 2-3 minute walk from all the restaurants and shops in Reykjavik.
Cons: Should put a safe in each room and also have electronic keys for the room--each room currently gets a physical key to open the door
Location: There are a lot of little shops and restaurants to explore around and the harbor is a 5-10 minute walk with an opera house that has a lot of shows.
The overall experience wasn't bad. The hotel itself is very small, so the elevator was tight and the rooms were small but it also gave it a nicer feel. There were 3 of us in a "junior suite" which was really 2 double beds pushed together and we got a cot. The hotel didn't have a concierge, but a few of the people working at the front desk knew about things to do in Iceland and easily helped us book tours. No AC or heating in the room, and as cold as Iceland is, it got really hot sometimes in such a small room. Breakfast was expensive and not particularly amazing--better to go grab something at a local cafe. There was also a lot of street parking nearby, as the hotel is in a residential area of the city.

Good LocationPosted Jul 25, 2016
Pros: Location. Easy alking distance from the center of town, but a couple blocks away, so not noisy.
Hotel is clean and in a good location, but Iceland is not the home of fine hotels. Tourism is new to Iceland and they haven't gotten customer service down yet. The front desk staff were polite, but not outgoingly helpful. The room was simple and tasteful, but spare. The breakfast was ridiculously expensive. Ended up costing $25 for a couple of hard boiled eggs and a croissant, since as a vegetarian, I wasn't interested in meat or fish for breakfast but you get a buffet, regardless of what you eat.

Boutique hotel centrally locatedPosted Jul 3, 2016
Pros: The hotel staff was great, although limited to one or 2 front desk workers.
Cons: Add a safe to the room.
Location: Located close to restaurants and shopping.
The room size was comfortable for 2 guests. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The adjoining restaurant Snaps was very busy in the evening and difficult to get a table. The food was quite good. The room lacked a safe.

In the City CenterPosted Jul 3, 2016
Odinsve hotel is a small older hotel but quite clean and nice. It is in the heart of the city center. Plenty of shops, bars and restaurants in easy walking distance. The staff were very helpful. The attached restaurant, Snaps, was great but pricey.

Could not be any better!Posted Jun 28, 2016
Pros: I liked everything! I think the staff at the front desk was amazing. They were incredibly informative and more than happy to answer questions and help
Cons: There is nothing that can be improved.
Location: The whole city is just right there, so many restaurants, bars and shops. 15 mins in any direction and your there.
I stayed in room #211 for 9 nights and it was a perfect experience.

Beautiful hotel, very accessible to downtown.Posted Jun 20, 2016
Cons: Noise from hallways does come in through the room door.
Location: Accessible to restaurants, shops, and attractions.
Very comfortable hotel with contemporary feel to decor. The beds were very comfortable and immaculate, as was the room. Bathroom was large and clean.The shower required stepping over the edge of the tub which is about 2 feet high; I found it necessary to sit on the edge of the tub and swing my legs over. Light blocking window shade helped as it remained bright all night. Front desk staff were extremely helpful with information, booking tours, and assistance as needed.
