About Jon Thorvaldsson

My name is Jon and i have been living in Reykjavik for over 20 years. Before that i lived in my old hometown of Akranes. I studied Computer Sciences at the University of Iceland and later did an MBA program at Reykjavik University. I currently work for CCP, a large online gaming company in Reykjavik, Iceland. I have rented this property to travellers since 2008 with great success. I live in the same building which allows me to respond quickly to any request my guests may have.

Jon Thorvaldsson purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Jon Thorvaldsson chose Reykjavik

This is a unique property and one of the few modern buildings in the central part of town. The location is ideal with all sights and attractions in the centre within walking distance and yet the area is relatively quiet.

What makes this apartment unique

Some of the unique benefits of this property include the spectacular view from the top floor in all directions. My guests are provided with a mobile phone with a local number as well as mobile wifi hotspot which allows you to share your digital memories instantly, wherever you are. The apartment is also equipped with an Apple TV, iPhone docking station, exceptionally large bath-tub and other amenities, all aimed at making your stay as convenient as possible.

Great apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this apartment for a week, and it was a great alternative to a hotel. Jon was very responsive to all of our questions leading up to the stay, and he provided us with good information when we arrived. The apartment is clean and convenient, and it was so nice to have space to spread out, which doesn't really happen in a hotel room. Location is fantastic--right on the main shopping street, and in easy walking distance to the old harbor and many of the sites. The bus station is right down the road as well, and we used the local bus to get to a few further-out attractions. Most of the tour operators will pick up at this location if you request it, and there is a tourist booking agency right across the street (as well as several others in walking distance). Also, there is a grocery store steps away, which is very convenient. We will try to stay here again if we visit Reykjavik.

PERFECT! What a Jem!

  • 5 of 5
The perfect place - modern, upscale, in the heart of the city, and the pictures don't do it justice - way prettier in person. And the bed was so comfortable! We opened the sky light window to let that fresh Icelandic air in and laid down on that memory foam mattress and slept like babies every night.

Jon was a truly excellent host. Goes out of his way to make sure you are comfortable and provides everything you need for your stay including mobile wifi, a local cell phone, a list of the best restaurants bars and cafes near by, and covered parking space. Jon even helped us with currency exchange and printed my boarding passes out for me as I was leaving - nicest guy and very honest.

If you stay at a hotel (which will cost you more) rather than live like a king and be hosted by Jon for your trip than simply put - you just don't know how to travel.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the apartment in March 2014 for three days. The apartment is fabulous, very clean and comfortable, open and spacious with awesome views from the living room and the bedroom. The large window in the living room/dining area opens for ventilation and provides great ambiance with the view and the energy on the street below. The place has a great location as well, lots of shops and restaurants and walking distance to the water and the Sun Voyager.

John is wonderful, provides guests lots of information about sights and good places to eat in the area. The apartment also has a great kitchen and a grocery store on the street level below. John made himself available if we needed anything and was very gracious. When our bags failed to arrive for almost a week of our trip, John was very generous and loaned us some much needed warm clothing and even a tripod for the camera (you can’t get pictures of the northern lights without one!). This was amazing! Arriving in Iceland in March from Austin, Tx without our warm clothes and boots could have ruined our trip- clothing is very very expensive in Iceland!

We also took advantage of the secure parking space which convenient because street parking can be a little challenging to find. I especially recommend the parking space in the cold months; scraping ice from your car is no fun!

Fantastic location

Cant say enough about this condo. Located in the heart of it all. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, groceries and the waterfront. Great views from both sides of this very clean and spacious condo. Kitchen had everything we needed including some spices and necessities for cooking. Conveniently located across the street from the tourist centre. Make sure to stop into Svarta Kaffia across the street for the best Soup served in Bread Bowl. Thank you to Jon for being so helpful and easily reached by offering us use of a cell phone. Perfect from arrival to departure. Thanks again Jon.

WOW!! Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5
I spent 6 nights in Jon's flat and felt lucky I was there every minute. From the location, the comfort, and the attention to every detail a person would need… this flat had it all. Jon was wonderful to work with. He made himself available to answer any question at any time. I hope to someday go back and visit Reykjavik and if I do, the only place I want to stay is here.

The location is ideal, with all the main restaurants, bars, clubs, shops, museums and other attractions of the city centre within a few minutes walking distance. Yet, the area is free from disturbance associated with the famous reykjavik night-life.

The main landmark hallgrimskirkja is within 5 minutes walking distance. Both the main bus terminal hlemmur and the main square lækjartorg are within 10 minutes walking distance in each direction.
