A prestigious heritage shapes a bright future

We believe that our prestigious heritage puts Óðinsvé in a unique position to satisfy the expectations of the stylish and discerning traveller. It’s not just to simply provide a hotel bed and a meal, at Hotel Óðinsvé it’s all about bringing a story to life.

Located in a historic residential area in the old town of Reykjavik, where streets come alive through their Nordic mythology names, of all the major Gods and Goddesses. Our location is within a short 5 minutes walk of all major attractions and landmarks in the city of Reykjavik.

Hoteliers since 1984, our employees have been a part of creating history with our guests from around the world. Some of our properties are historic buildings but of different architecture, but we have been the setting for some of life’s greatest moments for many of our guests. We’ve witnessed most of life´s diversity with them, as well as providing what we do best, createing incredible memories for guests, sometimes on a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ journey.

We are wholeheartedly committed to providing best experiences for our guests at every moment and in every way. Being personal, friendly and comfortable is our motto. 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.


Hótel Óðinsvé is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Reykjavík, a mere few minutes walk from the city center.

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

There is but a comfortable walking distance to all of the city’s shopping, events, main restaurants, bars, cafés, clubs, museums, embassies and public transport.
