Why Björn Valdimarsson chose Reykjavik

This apartment is special because of the amazing view and the 25 m2 roof top terrace. These are qualities very rare to find. It is also very well located and generous in size for two persons, 70 m2.

Great modern apartment, great view!

  • 4 of 5

This is a fantastic apartment. We loved the modern simple design and the great view. It is so close to shopping, restaurants, and attractions in the city. This is also a great place to stay while you see the Golden Circle and Blue Lagoon. I we tried to also do Snaefellsnes Pennisula and it was quite a lot of driving. Very lovely!

Quiet, clean, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in this apartment. It was quiet, clean, comfortable and in a great location. We liked the wonderful views and also the reading lights by the beds: a small but important detail for us.

Beautiful apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We are sad to be leaving such a beautiful city and this lovely apartment. We felt very lucky when we arrived to have picked such an amazing apartment, modern and spacious and equipped with everything needed, and incredible views from the rooftop. Would not stay anywhere else if we visited again.

I can't imagine finding a better place to stay in Reykjavik!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our (wife and I) first visit to Iceland and we didn't really know what to expect. We have rented rooms, condos, apartments, and villas in many countries and often are at least a little disappointed in that the properties never seem to live up to the photos and descriptions.

This was absolutely NOT the case with this apartment. The place is decorated tastefully, the furniture is more than acceptable, the bed comfortable, etc. I really cannot find one thing to say negatively about this location other than that construction is going on all around it and sometimes it is a little hard to get to the garage but that is certainly not the owner or realtor's fault and the apartment is so well made that the only time you hear the sounds of construction is when you open a window or outside door.

The apartment is spacious enough for a couple to be very comfortable, the shower is incredible, and the underground parking is very handy (although the elevator doesn't go all the way to the very bottom, you still have to walk up one short flight of stairs which could be an issue if you have a disability).

The location is also great, right off of one of the main streets and near to many restaurants, the Grey Line city bus tour stop is a couple of blocks away, and there is a pizza place a couple of doors down and a "convenience store" in the bottom floor of the building where you can grab snacks and drinks.

I was a little under the weather when we arrived in Iceland on a 5 AM flight and the relator managed to get the cleaning crew to get this apartment cleaned and allowed us to check in an hour or so early which was much appreciated.

The washer and dryer are located in the bathroom but there is still a lot of space in there, we never felt cramped at all!

The view looks out over Reykjavik and the harbor and the deck is huge!

I don't mean to gush but I can't think of any property we have ever rented which exceeds this one and only one or two which even approached it.

We would have absolutely no qualms about recommending this place again and will do our best to rent it again when we visit Iceland again, probably next year (you can't see anywhere near everything in a week).

As to the amenities, the bed, while different than what we're used to, was extremely comfortable and roomy and the kitchen was well equipped. We've never stayed in a place that used radiators for heating but we quickly got the hang of them and they worked fantastic.

Best place in Reykjavic!

  • 5 of 5

I agree with all the other great reviews! Spacious, clean, modern, well supplied, well located, great views. The Centerhotel Midgardur is right in front of the apartment and is great for bus pickups. Bjorn is easy to work with. He even went out of his way to let us store our luggage for a few hours after checkout. Thank you, Bjorn!
