We loved our stay at Athena! It was a quick 10 minute walk to downtown and the guesthouse was super clean and welcoming. Our room was not ready for us when we arrived (but it was about 8am and knew going into the guesthouse that it wouldn't be ready), but didn't matter we wandered around the city for a couple hours to get oriented with it and to look into any excursions. The way that the breakfast was laid out and done was fantastic, which is partly what made me choose this guesthouse. I loved how we were not tied to a specific time frame for breakfast! it worked out wonderfully. We do not have children and are in our late 30's, so this was a fantastic spot to rest our weary heads! Thanks so much to Booking.com and the owner of the Athena Guesthouse for a wonderful truly Icelandic experience!
good value for the money, very nice host, thoughtful and get everything well prepared, plenty of food and 27" mac on which I could play Teletubbies for my baby girl
I like the idea of seperate the big bathroom into 2 small ones, people could use them in parallel, but the mirror's position is not so good, I almost hit my head every time when I use basin
Very clean, lots of hot water, very quiet.
Dreary neighborhood, tiny bathroom, limited breakfast, not particularly good value for the money.
Great location, Egill super helpful with lots of recommendations, very clean
Very cozy Amazing choice of breakfast Very clean
curtains do not keep out sunlight
All sights are within walking distance. There is a thermal pool nearby and shops to by food. The staff is friendly anf very helpful/
Quick to arrange. Efficiently organised by staff reasonable cost.
5minutes wall to the harbour, perfect little clean flat with 4 rooms for guests, 2 tiny bathrooms and a nice kitchen with everything you need! just perfect
The owner is friendly and willing to help. Though it's not in downtown, but it's still easy to reach (near Radisson blu).
The bathroom is a bit too small.
SURROUNDING HAS NO CHARM, MIDDLE IN SUBURB
Drinks like juice or milk are avalibell all the time.
Small Bathrooms, but 2 of them.
Very helpful accommodating staff. Great to have the use of the kitchen.
Not bang in the centre, but only a 10-15 min pleasant walk in. The exterior doesn't look great, but don't be put off, it's much nicer on the inside!
The breakfast was fantastic! The top 2 shelves of the refridgerator were full of breafast foods and you could make yourself whatever you like. The staff were very friendly. The hostel is thoughfully setup and has a nice, small, friendly feel.
rooms are good and clean, car parking, silent, near to the city
Plenty of stuff in the fridge to prepare a nice breakfast/sandwich. Location is not the best, but still close to the city center (15 mins walking). Very helpful guy. Good Wifi
Could be closer to the city center (being picky).
Helpful and friendly staff. It was relatively close to all attractions and some local quiet waterfront walks. Very clean and good breakfast spread.
Bathroom was clean but tiny.
Good place to meet people
Very small bathrooms
The owner was so friendly & helpful. The self-serve breakfast was convenient & hearty. The apartment was clean & comfortable. The location was great: a 5-10 minute walk to most of the sites, bars & restaurants. I definitely recommend staying here.
Warm welcome by the owner, clean, cozy, nice breakfast!
It can easily happen that the kitchen is too crowded in the morning, as it there is not much space and just four chairs.
Egill (don't try to pronounce his name, it is not phonetic, just ask him), is very kind, welcoming and obviously takes pride in his guesthouse. There are four rooms that are a decent size. The communal kitchen is fully functional and the fridge is kept fully stocked with breakfast items (which is all self serve and lots of choices). It is on a quiet street within a 10 minute walking distance to the downtown. The two bathrooms are quite small, but the shower is nice, hot and good pressure. My mom and I tried to book with Egill again at the end of our weeklong road trip, but he was all booked up. We would definitely recommend Athena and hope to stay there again someday.
