ODDSSON Ho(s)tel by Döðlur

ODDSSON is a new establishment in Reykjavík, Iceland, who launched its first hotel/hostel project in May 2016.

There is a happy marriage between the integrity of the industrial architecture found in the original warehouse building, and Döðlur’s own eclectic aesthetic and custom pieces. The custom made pieces are inspired by the creativity that can be found in factories where leftover material, for example pipes and blue profiles, is used to create simple, raw but beautiful furniture.

A lot of effort has been put into a nice collection of furniture with very rare design gems from the likes of: Pierre Jeanneret, Pierre Paulin, Tobia Scarpa, Ettore Sottsass, Mario Botta, Gerrit Rietveld and Eero Saarinen just to name a few.

They offer a wide range of accommodation, from single rooms and bunk beds to hotel rooms and a large suite with stunning ocean views. There is a rooftop terrace with a jacuzzi where guests can relax. On the ground floor you will find a casual lounge, café and bistro.

ODDSSON is located in a popular residential area. Only a 10 minute walk from ODDSSON can take you to some fantastic places. To the buzzing environment downtown that's full of shops and restaurants. To the west side of Reykjavík where one can find a swimming pool, café and ice cream shop. Down to the new exciting environment of Grandi where there are restaurants, brewery, bakery and a beautiful harbour.
