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.

You always wonder if the place is as nice as it looks. No deception here -a gorgeous place!
The hosts were so accommodating & helpful. I was sick & asked for directions to a pharmacy- they offered to drive me there! Talk about above & beyond! The house is in a fabulous location to explore the city & our hosts gave us many good tips. Cannot day enough good things about the experience!
We enjoyed our stay! The house is in a great location! Iceland is a beautiful country. Thank you for sharing your house with us. The pond was so pretty and vesturbaejarlaug was a nice pool. We did the free walking tour in town and learned about the history of the buildings. We will be sure to recommend your house to our friends.
Idea location, very nice apartment and exceptional hosts
It was much more than we had hoped for. Our hosts could not have been nicer. The apartment was spacious and clean. There’s not a better location in Reykjavík.
Great location for exploring the city. Apartment very spacious. Loved it!
Our family really enjoyed staying at this lovely home. We had 6 adults and had plenty of room to have meals, relax after sightseeing,etc. 2 bathrooms a real plus. We were able to walk to tourist attractions in Reykjavik. The kitchen was well stocked so we could have some meals in. Owners very helpful, and we appreciated that they made a folder with detailed instructions regarding how to work everything in the home, where to grocery shop, suggestions for restaurants. Even gave a history of the house. I would highly recommend this home!
Fantastic place and location
Wonderful home that is perfectly located with easy access to buses, taxis, bars, and restaurants. We had an amazing time and the owners were very kind, responsive, and hospitable. Highly recommended!
