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 stay was great

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was cousey and all the appliances worked which was a plus. It had all of the need supplies such as towels, soaps, and blankets to keep me and the other residents happy. The only thing I would say needs a little work would be the WiFi but besides that everything was up to my expectations.

Great and clean space!

  • 4 of 5

Smaller apartment; however didn't matter to my friend and I as we were off on excursions and exploring Reykjavik. The shower is a bit tight but again, fit our vacation needs as we only stayed a few days. Might be helpful to have a drying rack, especially for after visiting blue lagoon and wanting to hang wet items in the bathroom. Otherwise, very clean apartment, easy to locate and access, location within walking distance of a lot of activities including a bus stop for excursion pick ups. Highly recommend!!!!

Very clean and even nicer than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend staying here. We were nice and close to everything, yet it was nice and quiet at night. The perfect place to stay.

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in apartment S. It was warm and inviting, and an easy walk to everything. The layout was great for three of us traveling together - a couple and our cousin. The living/dining area had a comfortable convertible sofa and a door for privacy. It was a perfect homebase for our Icelandic explorations. We would most definitely choose Nest again on our next visit. Thank you, Bjorn!

Home away from home again!

  • 5 of 5

Second stay at Nest reaffirmed that it is truly a home away from home. We returned to Nest after staying here 2 years ago and brought another couple along. Bjorn was easy to reach and responsive to our needs. The apartment was spotless and had comfortable beds (including the sofa bed in living room) and very nice bedding. Inclusion of coffee, spices, shampoo and shower soap are nice additions.

The apartment is in central Reykjavik near Hallgrimskirkja and easy to walk everywhere. We split our time between here and Snaefellsness so we had a car and found it easy to park on the street. I would definitely recommend Nest apartments and hope to return again soon!
