About Adalsteinn Hjartarson

A native of Iceland living in Switzerland, I work with Island ProTravelGmbH as the owner.

Adalsteinn Hjartarson purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Adalsteinn Hjartarson chose Heimar

Because it's peaceful, because it's family friendly, because it's a beautiful house, because it's not far from the city centre, because it's two minutes from the natural paradise of Laugardalur.

Perfect fit for us!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 2 nights. Super easy check in & easy to find! Convenient location near grocery stores & downtown. Awesome amenities in the unit & comfortable beds. Plenty of space for family of four. Family upstairs was extremely helpful & very nice. We were glad to be coming back to stay another 2 nights after going North for a few days. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a more homey feel than a hotel room in Reykjavik. Clean & comfortable with pretty updated decor. Thanks SO much!!

Really helped make our trip more enjoyable because it was somewhere that felt good to come back to at the end of the day.

Amazing apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment had everything that we could have ever needed, and was spotlessly clean. We could have stayed a month and been very happy. It's close to the bus lines.

Great get away apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was exactly what we needed to be able to explore Iceland, Reykjavik, and be involved with local activities. It was very comfortable, clean, and easy to access. It's within a 5 minute walking distance of a market, a couple of restaurants, and a couple of malls.

Very convenient apartment for family/group

  • 4 of 5

Our family was making a stopover in Reykjavik for a couple of days. From the beginning, the booking has been easy. The owner was easy to reach and very responsive. The apartment is convenient for families. We had the master bedroom. One of our teenager used the sofa bed and the other, the bed in the hallway. The beds were comfortable, the sofa bed is..a sofa bed.

Kitchen was well equipped but the oven door couldn't be opened. In lieu, dual function micro wave was provided.

Cleanliness was superficial. A deeper clean-up in Kitchen and corners needed.

Wi-Fi was very good. Parking in the street was very convenient.

Make sure you bring hear plugs as you'll keep the windows open to maintain reasonable temperature and you can her traffic on the Main Street as well as the apartment above which had a late night on the Friday.

Overall, very happy with the apartment, amenities and location.

Great Location, Owner very responsive to questions.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very nice, kitchen and bath very good. Beds were very comfortable. The only concern was the neighbors above are noisy, they have small children that were up very early. Otherwise... it was a great location within walking distance from shops and restaurants.
