About Björn Valdimarsson

We the owners, Björn and Liba, have offered holiday apartments in Reykjavik from 2009 with very good reviews from our guests. We also had a barn in Tuscany for few years that was a great success. We have now purchased this house in the old centre of Reykjavik. The house was built in 1927, there we have restored four apartments, one on each floor. We have travelled a lot through the years and have good experience with self catering apartments. We think this kind of accommodation, good apartments at the best places is the way to go now and in the future.

Björn Valdimarsson purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Björn Valdimarsson chose Hlíðar

The apartment is newly restored with great care. The property is right in the old centre of Reykjavik, you can walk to shops, restaurants, bars and main attractions in town. Still this is a quiet area and everybody that comes to the house loves it.

What makes this apartment unique

The nice garden and view to mount Esja and over the roof tops of the old town. The luxury of having a great coffee house on the corner, bakery, grocery store, restaurants and a swimming pool right at hand.

Beautiful apartment, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the top level "N" Nest apartment. The apartment was very clean, modern, comfortable and beautifully decorated. We loved the view from the balcony. The location was perfect, a very short walk from all the restaurants and shops. I just wish we could have stayed longer than two nights! We hope to return to Iceland in the future and would definitely stay here again. Thanks Bjorn!

Wonderful time spent at the Nest for a week in October

  • 5 of 5

The Nest made our stay in Iceland enjoyable. Having a key code and key box make it very easy to access the apartment. The apartment was very well laid out for a couple with a full kitchen with everything you need. Eating out is very expensive, however the apartment was so cozy and comfortable we ate in most of the time. The bed is lovely and comfortable. Very warm with lots of heaters in every room. We found it very quiet on the top floor. It is very central to town, walking distance to everything. We had a car and had no trouble with parking. We found we were able to go on lots of exploring each day outside of Reykjavik and were happy to go back to the Nest at the end of the day. We would highly recommend this apartment for your stay in Iceland.

Highly Recommend staying at the NEST

  • 5 of 5

I am so happy with our stay at the NEST apartments. It is a central location to everything and situated on a quiet street. There are several grocery stores--which you can pick from and the apartment is cozy, clean, comfortable and well stocked.

It was convenient to Bus stop 8 -located at the side of the church, which is the airport dropoff and pick up as well as for the excursions you may sign up for.

It has a dishwasher, dishwasher detergent, stove with oven, nespresso machine with pods provided, coffee press and stove top espresso pot, fridge and all kitchen necessities down to paper towels. There was no microwave but we never needed one. I loved all the thoughtful details in the apartment.

The bathroom had soap and shampoo and a perfect amount of towels for a 7 day stay.

There is a balcony which opens up from the kitchen, with a table and 2 chairs should you want to hang out and have some coffee there---- or just look out to the city and watch the stars.

This apartment was just perfect. I am so happy with our stay. Bjorn was so easy to work with. He even provided the most helpful list for the go to areas and neighborhood map-really thoughtful and helpful.There was even a storage area for our luggage, which was so helpful since our flight was at 5pm and check out was 11am. I would definitely return here and recommend to family and friends.
