We stayed at Octavo for two nights in August, 2012. Ulli - our host - was absolutely amazing! He picked us up from the Flybus and told us about Reykjavik on our way. We realized we had a problem with our GPS, which we needed for some hiking in the Highlands, and he found someone to fix it for us!... More

We stayed at this guesthouse in June/July and were very comfortable. As others have said, it's in a good location - a pleasant walk to town and in a quiet location. We had 2 bedrooms, one across from the other, and could visit back and forth. It was helpful having a refrigerator, coffee and tea-making facilities. We didn't cook though... More

We were very happy to stay at this guesthouse close to the centre of Reykjavik. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful, the room was very comfortable, clean and well equipped (with self-catering facilities and private bathroom) and on top of all that it was very good value. Would definitely recommend this guesthouse and would happily come again.

We found this guesthouse on tripadvisor and were pleased with the results. We stayed in the smaller of the two rooms but it was still a great size. 5 minute walk to the heart of the city, but not close enough that you get the busy traffic noise. Ulli was extremely pleasant and happy to help! Beds are extremely comfortable!... More

Guesthouse Octavo offers many comforts in a residential area of Reykjavik only a few minutes walk to the city center. Parking is a bit of a challenge as it is residential and you may have to park a few blocks away but isn't a huge problem. I would recommend having a car in Iceland though, it can be quite expensive,... More
