About us

Hótel Óðinsvé offers 50 rooms, eight of which are suites (those are quite comfortable,), all of which are newly renovated to the highest standard. Those seeking traditional luxury hotel features—like rows of shiny chandeliers dangling over a polished marble floor lobby—should look elsewhere. At Hótel Óðinsvé, we prefer to be personal, friendly and comfortable.

We also offer 10 luxury apartments at two separate locations; six apartments right across the street from the hotel at Tysgata 8, and four apartments 200 meters down the hill, at Skolavordustigur 7, the main shopping and event street in Reykjavik. And if you fancy a stay in the countryside, our country lodge is available for booking. It is located near the Kerið Crater, about a 15 minute drive from Selfoss, a 30 minute drive from Geysir (Golden Circle) and about an hour’s drive from Reykjavik. This upscale country home features a modern decor with three bedrooms, which can accommodate 5 persons (2+2+1) as well as a sleeper sofa in the living room. A large terrace with a sitting area surrounds the Lodge, with view directly overlooking the mountain Búrfell.

We want our customers to feel at home, feel like they’re staying with friends. To that end, we go to great lengths to provide a relaxed atmosphere, where our friends can enjoy impeccable service that emphasizes the level of of comfort and personal attention they deserve. At the right price, in the right location.

Indeed, unlike many of our competitors who claim to be located “right in the heart of Reykjavík” (an easy claim to make in a city of Reykjavík’s size), we actually are. Look it up.

Be our best friend

Our regulars—those of you who visit us at least three times a year—have some good things in store. Our best friends get a direct line to contact us whenever they’re planning a trip, so we can ensure that they get to stay in their favorite room, pick them up from the airport and provide them with all those little things you do for your besties.
