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 Reykjavik

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.

A great apartment in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Nest Apartment for 4 nights. The apartment had a great view and was within walking distance of the city center. It was very clean, bright, comfortable, nicely decorated and well stocked with dishes, etc. Access to the apartment was easy, and when we contacted Bjorn for something, he was very responsive. We loved our stay!

Quaint, cozy...perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was my home away from home while visiting Reykjavik for a week and I couldn't have been happier. Everything is as it's described, the pictures are spot on and the owner, Bjorn, went over and above being helpful and assisting with all my questions. The booking process was effortless and Bjorn very kindly offered to let me check in early (if no guest was there the day before) or in the alternate, store my bags until check-in time. This was a blessing and a relief since I arrived in Reykjavik on a red-eye and was a bit travel weary.

The kitchen was stocked with all necessary cookware and I was grateful for the ground coffee that was there since I came in on a red eye and didn't get around to grocery shopping right away.

The location is perfect, too. Getting around on foot is easy and a car is not necessary unless you plan to venture outside the city. It's safe, quiet, but central to wherever you might like to explore.

All in all a most pleasant stay and would return to this apartment again and again!

Cozy Reykjavik Apartment - N

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the N loft apartment for two nights as part of our honeymoon in Iceland. We absolutely loved it, it was so cozy and inviting the second we stepped through the door. Clean, well-maintained and what a view from that little patio off the kitchen! We appreciated the convenient location as well, we found it easy to walk to all the sites, shops, restaurants and bars nearby. Bjorn was great with email communications and helping us out when we had any questions, there's even a handy little homemade guide to local places left out for you on the coffee table (which we used multiple times!). Many thanks for the opportunity to stay here, we had a really great time. Highly recommend.

Beautiful apartment in excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our stay in Reykjavík. It's in a great part of the city with many amazing restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance, as well as notable landmarks. Super easy parking and very quiet, considering the location. The interior is very comfortable and well decorated too, with a good amount of space. Highly recommended!

We loved our little home in Reykjavik!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Apartment E for 5 days while we were staying in Reykjavik. The location is PERFECT---walking distance to everything!The owners are very hands on and available if you need to get in touch. They provide all the information that you could need from grocery stores to great restaurants. The apartment itself was fabulous! Super clean and very well organized. The views from the apartment are spectacular---you could see the ocean and the mountains surrounding the city.

We would love to visit Iceland again and these apartments would be our first choice for lodging!

If you plan on staying in the city you wouldn't need a car, however street parking is very easy if you plan on renting a car for day trips outside of the city. Pending on the season these day trips are really easy and a total must do--bring a picnic!

Thank you so much to the fabulous owners!! We really did love our time in Reykjavik!!
