About Pall V. Bjarnaon
I am a self employed architect in Reykjavik and my wife, Sigga, is an editor with the University of Iceland press. We like to travel around the world and our country. We have stayed in rented apartments in Europe and think this is a brilliant way of travelling. It opens another dimension in travelling. We have three daughters and eight grandchildren. I would describe us as sociable people who like to meet other people. I am very fond of classical music and attend concerts of the Icelandic symphony orchestra on a regular basis.
Pall V. Bjarnaon purchased this Apartment in 1990
Why Pall V. Bjarnaon chose Downtown
I am a restoration architect and we bought this house literally in ruins and restored it. You could see it was a beautiful house with a great location right in the center. Everything is within reach for us the owners as well as for people who stay in the apartment.
What makes this Apartment unique
The house was built in 1918 in a traditional decorative neo-baroc style and we have recently restored the basement apartment in the 1920s style, mixed with brand new design furniture and luxurious beds. The location is perfect for guests while staying in Reykjavik. You don´t need a car and if you need we have two extra bicycles for our guests. In front there is a small patio with a table and chairs exclusively for our guests in the summer.

The lower level apartment in this historic house is spacious, comfortable and ideally located in the center of Reyjavik; within walking distance of restaurants, shopping and the harbor. The hosts are very kind and will provide recommendations and advice, if requested. They also provide some pantry basics (coffee, tea, sugar, butter, laundry soap, etc.) which was very nice. Having a home base in Reykjavik to come back to after a day of exploring Iceland (rented a car so we could see the sights on our schedule) was the right choice for us!
A great place
Wonderful house, perfect location
Beautiful, centrally located home.
This is a beautiful home in a great location. Pall is a wonderful host and very helpful. Our group of 5 women was very comfortable in every way - sleeping accommodations, kitchen area, and a very comfortable living room area to sit and recount the days adventures. The house is clean, well-kept, and everything is in proper working order. We would definitely recommend this location for your Iceland vacation. Thank you Pall for helping to make our Iceland visit a memorable one.
Awesome location and home; Terrific owners
Quaint home in the heart of Reykjavik. Perfect for our group of six adults. Beds, baths, kitchen, and family room/tv room great space for all to relax, gather, whatever. Close to restaurants, bars, historic places of interest, etc. We didn't rent a car - used Grayline bus to and from airport - brings you within a block of this home. (Bus Stop 2) While there we either walked or were picked up for excursions - again at bus stop 2. Pall gave great recommendations on restaurants and things to do. Had one breakfast and one lunch at Berggstrom - 2 short blocks away. Highly recommend! Also recommend you check out the I Heart Reykjavik blog (not affiliated with this home). Great source of info on the city/things to do. Enjoy!
Beautiful Home in the heart of Reykjavik!
What a beautiful, spacious, clean home in the heart of Reykjavik! We were a family of 5 (all adults) and had a wonderful time. The kitchen and baths were well stocked and spotless. We were close to restaurants, shopping and all of the "sightseeing" spots! We would not hesitate to stay again if we are back in Iceland(which may happen as it exceeded our expectations). Thanks for opening your wonderful home to us!
The apartment is located within a short walk to stores, restaurants, the old port, museums and easy access to tourist activities/transportation.
