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 Hlíðar

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.

My wife and I just returned from our Iceland trip and we had the most amazing stay at the Nest apartements “E” as our base camp for exploring the island.

I can’t say enough good things about our home-away-from-home. It was clean, nicely decorated and immediately made us feel at home. It provided us with all the accommodations that one could possibly look for in a vacation home, even a fantastic Nespresso coffee maker, that guaranteed you a phenomenal cup of coffee in the mornings after long nights of northern lights watching from the balcony.

Björn is an amazing host, that is always reachable via email and will help with all your needs.

The only bad thing that I can think of in regards to our visit is, that it was not longer.

WArm and cozy experience.

  • 4 of 5

My experience at the NEST was wonderful. The apartment was priced right, close to the activity while a little removed for the noise. It was just perfect for my daughter and myself I only wish we had stayed there the whole time we were in Iceland. Much cozier than the hotel we stayed at.

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay in NEST apartment E. It was a lovely place and extremely close to everything downtown. Bjorn was very easy to get ahold of if needed and made getting to the apartment a breeze with his instructions. We loved it!

Best Location in Reykjavik!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 1 week stay at Nest Apartment E. The apartment and surroundings exceeded our expectations. It was clean, had everything we needed and had a lovely view of the town from a small balcony off the kitchen. There was a wonderful bakery with fresh croissants, danishes, cinnamon buns and bread nearby as well as numerous restaurants, grocery stores and shopping. Great access to downtown and close to Reykjavik's tallest church (Hallgrammskirkja) which made it easy to find wherever we were. In a quiet neighbourhood by the bus terminal. We had a fantastic stay.

Charming, spacious, clean apartment with great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Nest Apt E and it was terrific! Extremely clean, a lot of space, yet cozy and it was the perfect place to stay while we were in Reykjavik. Very close to shops and restaurants but on a quiet street with easy parking. Nice garden in the back yard which we could see from our little balcony.

Thank you, I would highly recommend this apartment!

Impeccably Clean, Super Cute, Great View, Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Bjorn was incredibly responsive to all of our pretravel questions. The apartment was impeccably clean and super cute. The view was lovely. The best bakery and coffee shop in Reykjavik were right outside the door. All major city attractions were just a minute's walk away. Parking was easy. Everything you need is in the apartment or convenient. Nest is truly a home-away-from-home.
